Sleepless in KL

I do not know how many times I yawned this morning. It was not even half of the day. I'm tired. Baby girl woke me up at 4.30am and she started smiling and talking. I know by the time I'm ready for work, she will fall asleep. And her excitement sounds woke up her big sister. Double the noise left and right.

I'm losing my sleep over kids and work.

On our way to work, oh we drove to work today. Normally we took the LRT train to avoid stuck in traffic for hours. But my understanding husband decided to drive so his wife can have a nap. Hehe. I told him, I know why baby girl woke up early. So I can spend time with her. If I count it correctly, we only spent time with our children 4 hours a day. It's not enough. There's no quality time when both of us are tired and in our mind we think about how comfy our bed and nice to be in lala land.

He agreed on that. So I must not complain huh? Hehe. Enjoy your sleepless nights Fara, you'll miss it when your kids all grown up. Because that's what kiddo told me last night before he went to sleep.. "Mama, when I'm 12 you don't have to wait for me to go to bed. I'll sleep by myself because I am a big boy."


P/S: They grow up so fast when we are busy with other things.

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…
