Food Review: Dinner at Sri Ayutthaya Damansara

We went there last Saturday night. This time, it was my turn 'belanja' my family due to my salary increment and moved to other team. Yay! Syukur alhamdulillah.

We got the table at the corner where we can see the main road. Not quite many people at that time. Mr. Fruitheart keep telling me it looks expensive. I said, it's OK dear.. once in a while only right?

A must order dish when visiting Thai restaurant is of course TOMYAM. So we ordered chicken tomyam, kailan with salted fish, black pepper beef, pandan chicken, and kerabu suhun. For drinks kiddo had iced-lemon tea as usual, I had kiwi juice and lychee coconut for Mr. Fruitheart.

We didn't have to wait long for our food. Around 10-15 minutes. All the foods look delicious. However, to our disappointment.. it doesn't taste THAT GOOD and wasn't THAT FANTASTIC.

Kailan with salted fish

The chicken tomyam taste funny. Even kiddo complained. It seems the chicken weren't as fresh as we wanted it to be. And so does the pandan chicken. Lucky there were only 4 pieces of it. The kailan with salted fish also doesn't taste like 'kailan salted fish'. I don't understand why they didn't cut the veggies into small pieces. I thought the black pepper beef to be spicy, but it's not at all. Yes, I can feel the black pepper but no it doesn't taste "BLACKPEPPER". Black pepper should be spicy and hot isn't it? I did enjoy eating the kerabu suhun, suited my taste during this pregnancy period. I guess that's the only dish I like.

And Mr. Fruitheart liked the lychee coconut drink. Kiddo? He doesn't enjoy his food at all. Sampai sakit perut lah anak I tu.

I told Mr. Fruitheart this could be the first and last time we go there. When he wanted to have some special time eating with his family, this things happened. So disappointing.

OK, I do like their ambiance. Nice decor with lots of wood and nice music. Their customer service is good too. Friendly, smiling waiters and waitresses. Maybe if they have customer survey form, I would have definitely wrote my comments! A bit pricey considering the quality and serving size.


P/S: So far there's no Thai restaurant place that can beat Bangkok Wasabe at Kota Damansara. Sadly, it's no longer there. Don't know where they've moved or closed down for good.

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…
