Accidents Happened Even at Home

Everybody knows accidents can happen everywhere. Even at home. Now have you ever asked yourself, if you need a First Aid Kit at home? Or in your car? I did think of having it at home and in my car, but I haven't buy it yet. I do not know when.

This happened during my OAWC last week. I was frying some beef when the hot oil splashed to my fingers. It was so painful. :( My mother once told me, to keep it cool put some toothpaste or butter. So I quickly ran to the toilet and put some on my fingers.

That was one. The other accident happened to Mr. Fruitheart when his toes hit the sharp end of the floor. He didn't feel the pain, not until I saw blood on the floor. I thought it came from the fish.

Due to no First Aid Kit, the traditional way I did was put some 'minyak gamat' on his toes after cleaning it. Mr. Fruitheart got a bit dizzy looking at his own blood. I wonder how he felt when I delivered baby girl last year.. hmmm.

So why we need First Aid Kit again? It is very IMPORTANT if someone hurts themselves and to deal with minor accidents and injuries like what happened to me. Here are what I got from Google:

A basic first aid kit should contain: 

  • Plasters, in a variety of different sizes and shapes.
  • Small, medium and large sterile gauze dressings.
  • At least two sterile eye dressings.
  • Triangular bandages.
  • Crêpe rolled bandages.
  • Safety pins.
  • Disposable sterile gloves.
  • Tweezers.
  • Scissors.
  • Alcohol-free cleansing wipes.
  • Sticky tape.
  • Thermometer, preferably digital.
  • Skin rash cream such as hydro cortisone or calendula.
  • Cream or spray to relieve insect bites and stings.
  • Antiseptic cream.
  • Painkillers such as paracetamol (or infant paracetamol for children), aspirin (not to be given to children under 16), or ibuprofen.
  • Cough medicine.
  • Decongestant tablets or nasal spray.
  • Antihistamine tablets.
  • Distilled water, for cleaning wounds and as an eye bath.


You need to put them where it is easy to reach. Of course you need to always ensure it is well-stocked. You need to have the supplies and be ready for most emergencies.

Question:So when are you going to buy one Fara?
Devil Fara: After my paycheck.
Angel Fara: Does it have to wait until that long?

P/S: I do have few stuff inside my bag, plasters and aspirin. I will get it when I get my paycheck in few days. OK promise!

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…
