So I Have a Helper Now, What's Next?

Last Monday Mr. Fruitheart received whatsapp text from his brother saying that there were 4 maids available from the agent. He asked me how? I was 50-50 and asked him back how about him? Knowing him too well, he said we need to decide now and he would want me to say YES or NO. I said.. go ahead.

Tired of people asking, don't you want a maid? Have you found one yet? Who will take care of your children later when both of you went to work? Is nursery safe? Have you really thought about it seriously? The last question is when I replied to them.. I'll quit my job.

We chose the helper aged 35 which the first picture the agent forwarded to Mr. Fruitheart. Chubby lady with experienced working in the Saudi for almost 9 years. She had 3 children of her own and the eldest is 18 years old. She's married at the age of 15. We went to Malacca straight from KL on the same day to settled all registration and permit and so on because Monday is the last day we were supposed to submit before the new rules. I didn't pay attention of the rules though. (That's what happened when you are not doing something whole hearted). Buat endah tak endah, sambil lewa.

First impression, she was OK. Looks friendly. We were hoping baby girl would be OK with her. Today is her second day and NO baby girl doesn't want the helper to hold her. Plus, she had sudden viral fever on Monday evening which made her even cranky and wanted to be with me. Yesterday I've been holding her almost all the time. I hurt my back, hips and pelvis area so bad and I know it's not good for my pregnancy. I hate to see her cry which make me cry along with her. And I feel bad for ignoring my baby inside me. Forgive me baby. :(

Today I went to work with a heavy heart. She cried when Mr. Fruitheart passed her to the helper. She took out her hands and was hoping her daddy would take her back. I wonder.. is there something wrong with the helper? Is she that scary? Is there a ghost inside her? Is she carrying an unseen creature with her?


P/S: I am sad. If a man smoke when they're stress, what about woman? Called my MIL and she told me baby girl was asleep but still cry whenever the helper hold her.

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…
