Chiropractic Treatment

First time I heard about chiropractic was when someone mentioned it in Vivy Yusof's IG. If you are wondering who she is, she is the MD for She was having back pain during her pregnancy, and there was this lady who recommended chiropractic treatment located in Bangsar.

Soon after that, I was googling about it. Aha! What is there to waste? I had the same problem too, back pain since 9 years ago from my first pregnancy.

I told Mr. Fruitheart about the treatment. As expected he asked if it is safe for pregnant mother. I said yes and forwarded him the link I found in babycenter. How safe is chiropractic care during pregnancy?

I had difficulties getting up and moving sides during sleeping. I had to move slowly and gently or else, I can feel my bones moving too which is so painful. It was like it's going to break into pieces. Back crackers woo.. But it's actually not! You know when something is rusty and you try to open it? That kind of difficulty.

So on Friday last week, I went to Bangsar Chiropractic. Easy to find the place. I opt for Dr. Twink Lim, female chiropractor. My appointment was at 11.30am, but I had to come early 20 minutes for registration since it was my first time. I was nervous after I heard.. 'ticks' sound. When it was my turn. I was greeted with a very friendly, soft spoken and gentle doctor. She looks so young! So she asked me few questions, how did I get it, have I had any accidents, fall or injuries and so on.

So the treatment begin. I was asked to do some experiment. She asked me to raise my hands and hold it while she pressed her hands trying to push my hands down. After that I was asked to lay down on the bench. My tummy downward. I was like, is this OK doc? Are you sure? Seriously? There was a worried look on Mr. Fruitheart's face too. She said, 'It is OK. I had a 9 months old pregnant lady done it. It's safe.' Phew! You're the Doc. And she put a pillow on the bench to support my tummy.

She started her treatment and did the adjustment. She asked me if I ever exercise. Errr.. no Doc. Then Mr. Fruitheart interrupted, 'She said doing house chores are her exercise.' The Doc smiled and said, no house chores are not exercise. He had to make me blush didn't he? Then she took something and pressed the thing on my leg and back. Eh? No pain. Thank God. Silly me thought it's going to be a painful process. Yeah, I'm the paranoid patient.

My session ended after 20 minutes. I felt OK and relief, back pain gone. You know what Dr. Twink told me? I need to exercise, no need to do the extreme one. Pilates or yoga would do since I am pregnant. Swimming also can. No I do not know how to swim. She told me to drink a lot of water too. And she remind me, HOUSE CHORES IS NOT AN EXERCISE. I got you Doc.

I went for my second adjustment last Wednesday, she did the same thing. And yes, no more difficulties in getting up and moving sides for this pregnant mummy. Hurray! But that doesn't mean it won't come back. She said, I can come for adjustment whenever I feel uncomfortable. It is like you're going for a spa treatment once a month or 'berurut dengan mak bidan' or 'tukang urut'.

I definitely recommend this chiropractic treatment. However, please do consult your doctor first.

P/S: Price wise, first time consultation + treatment is RM200. Follow up treatment and consultation is RM100 as of today.

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…
