Every Child Is Different

I do know every child is different even though they were in the same tummy for approximately 280 days. They have different personalities, have different strength and vulnerabilities; and they need different kind of attention.

What works for my kiddo doesn't mean it work for my baby girl. I have always tried my best to adapt and be flexible with all my children. I know I am not alone in this. Parenting is hard work.

My boy is now 10 years old and this year we had a little bit of difficulties with his school work. I tell you, the education system is keep on changing. It is getting harder and there are more subjects too. Which means more homework. As parents, we need to be more knowledgeable than our kids. The problem is, I left school for almost 16 years! Some things I forgot already. *sigh* There were so many difference in the education, syllabus and learning nowadays.

My girl, she's going to be 2 years in 3 months. She's cheeky, dramatic attention seeker and a very helpful daughter. She now knows that she has a little sister and loves her a lot. She still sleeps in between me and Mr. Fruitheart while her baby sister sleeps in her cot. She has improved a lot in her vocabulary and understand what we said. I can see that she has a very high determination and will do whatever it takes to achieve what she wants. I would say she is learning early to be independent.

My baby girl, what can I say.. it is still early to say much about her. She is 3 months old now and loves to suck her chubby fingers despite being given a pacifier. She has a 'drumstick' thigh too. I do know how much her weigh now. We are still waiting for her to roll over. It would be a precious moment seeing her first development in everything. A moment we don't want to miss in our children's development milestone.

Whatever it is, I hope and pray for my children to be a good person when they grow up. I also hope they will have a good life, career and never forget their parents.

P/S: Will always love them. - Syahmie, Arissa and Rania.

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…
