Practical Self Service Laundry

This was my first time trying this self service laundry. Usually I just sent my clothes to the laundry and the lady did it for me, well I mean the machines. Since I was in a hurry that day, so I got to do what I had to do.

Why didn't I use my own washing machine? Well, I don't have one yet. So I had to sent my clothes to MIL's house twice a week. Can you imagine how big piles of clothes I ended up with? Two laundry baskets! When I'm going to buy? Tomorrow. So I can get it by Saturday. Crossing my fingers!

So let's get back to the story. This place Rainbow Laundry is located at PV128 Platinum Mondrian, Jalan Genting Klang, Setapak. It's near the Chatime and Toowoomba. I left the office early that day just to this. There were each three 9KGs and 14KGs washing machine.

They included the price you have to pay to the machine and let you know which type of water to be used - cold, warm. There is also the soap vendor machine in case you didn't bring your own. The detergent and softener costs RM1 each.

Please be informed, all machines there are using the new 50 cents coins. So you have to change it first.

You have to bring your own laundry basket. They did provide, but knowing how some people who likes FREE STUFF, their baskets have been stolen. Bad people!

What's best? They have free WIFI. I have to wait almost for an hour. Each half hour for washing and drying. That should keep me busy online socializing.

Six dryer should be enough looking at the small shop. And there were not too many people during drying time. Mind you, they also had CCTV installed. Good. Safety.

And there after all had done, I am a happy housewife. My clothes were clean and washed and dried at the same time. Just need a lot of folding, which can take up to half hour. Phew! How much do I spent? RM12 for both.

P/S: I was thinking to open a self service laundry near my place. The idea is there..

ASTRO: Just Because of RM10.45

On last Thursday, we had an issue with our ASTRO. We reached home and as usual, kiddo switched on the TV and click on her fave channel. However, there was a message:

We apologise for the service interruption. To resume service please SMS: Astro RCO XXXXX(Smartcard number) and send to 66688. For customers in Brunei, please call 151. (TCI)

So I sent an SMS, and got a reply:
RM0.00 You are currently not eligible for this transaction. Please make payment immediately to enjoy full ASTRO services again. Thank you.

Our ASTRO has been barred?? Mr. Fruitheart checked our history payment and confirmed we had paid. So, I had to call ASTRO. I called the toll free line and since I'm using the ASTRO IPTV, I was being transferred to another line.

I asked the customer service representative to check and she told me our ASTRO account has an outstanding payment. I was like WHAT? Outstanding payment? How much? Oh no! Did Mr. Fruitheart paid to the wrong account? Because I had 2 under my name.


Confinement Packages / Pakej Berpantang

During my last pregnancy, I hired a confinement lady (CL) from Jemari tradisional to take care of me after I delivered my baby girl. This time around I have not decided yet where I will be staying during my confinement days and not sure if I will get the same CL from JT.

So, I have started to search for confinement lady / confinement packages / post natal packages / post natal care/ penjaga pantang / pakej pantang / pakej urut bersalin on the Internet. I found few that looks OK but some of the websites were not updated. I do not know if they're still on business.

So here are the lists:

Dilemma: Taska / Nursery for The Girls

We're back to square one. Scratching our head, thinking hard and have to make an important decision. My sister can no longer take care of my girls, she has accepted a job offer in KLIA2.

Definitely not going to hire another helper. I do not want face another headache, frustration and have stranger into our house. It would also cost us thousands of Ringgit again which we don't have. Now we're considering sending the girls to a childcare centre. Choosing a childcare centre is NOT easy. Reliable and registered are normally full.

I had done my research on the Internet, browsing the JKM website looking for registered taska / nursery. I called few places and they are no longer accepting new entry.

I had called this centre named Taska Umi Setia Kasih in Danau Kota. I prefer this taska since it is close to kiddo's transit house and school. It is also close to my in law's house. And it is just opposite the police station. Aha. There is a place for Arissa, but I have to wait fo…
