She's Back To Work


Deep down inside my heart, I am not ready to step into the office. I do not miss my place. I will miss my children more. Sobs. Sobs.  Stop being such a drama queen Fara! You know you HAVE to. Or else Mr. Fruitheart will have to carry me to the office which I know he will not do.

So.. to start my first day, I'm all new. Meaning new tudung, clothes, shoes. Ahh.. the shoes that bite. I should bite them back huh?

When my colleagues saw me the first question was 'How was your baby?' I expected it and had prepared the script. And the next hot statement, 'Wah, so fast you get back into shape.' Well, they haven't seen the extra grandma fat, baby fat yet. Oh not to forget the tummy. I told them, I do sit ups.

Next thing, my monitor gave me 'spark' like it was shocked to see me. I guess it doesn't miss me because it had 'died'. I had to request for a new monitor. 19 inch. That is going to be a gift from me to my boss on my first day.

Next, at this time.. 14:10pm I am wondering how my girls and boy are doing. Kiddo is a bit unwell. I hope he is not down with fever. I keep on staring at the clock wishing it will change to 6pm. *sigh* I'm homesick..

P/S: Counting days until 31.12.2014. *wink*

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…
