TAWC - Instant Ingredients Again

Last weekend, my cooking plan was supposed to be on Saturday. However, we had slight changes due to the 'good news' of me being pregnant and we decided to buy baby girl's new car seat. That's the intro. Now let's continue with the cooking which I did on Sunday.

I bought lots of instant ingredients this time. Kurma, Sweet and Sour, Sambal Tumis, Veggies, Rendang, Asam Pedas, Kari Ikan and I. All from Maggie. But I didn't used all.

Last weekend dishes:
4 packs of chicken kurma
4 packs of chicken soup
2 packs of asam pedas (fish)
2 packs of beef rendang
3 packs of vegetables (as usual, carrots with french beans)

I feel a bit disappointed with my cooking this time. It didn't turn out well. :( Although the steps and measurement were there, I still failed. I do not how to budget it. How am I supposed to know how many pieces of chicken is 500gm?? Blerghh.

The asam pedas so sour and spicy.

The chicken kurma doesn't taste like kurma even though the color and texture was there.

And this beef rendang too. :(

I used the instant ingredients for cooking veggies, and it didn't taste nice. 'Tasteless' Mr. Fruitheart said. Did I just lose my cooking skills after I knew I am pregnant?? Chicken soup is well done since I am using the traditional way, chopping onions and ginger. At least that turned out well.

P/S: I really hope I have the strength to cook when my tummy is round and big during my 6th month pregnancy. Else, we have to buy food everyday.

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…
