Struggling with Bullying

It happened again.

The first time when it happened, he was 7 years old. My son, is being bullied in school. I am so sad, angry and frustrated. I wish I was there when the tragedy happened. His money was taken from him, by another big fat bully! Just because he has big figure he can easily bully other students who are smaller than him. My son was unwell when it happened. He was asked to sit on the sofa near the corridor where normally they put unwell students.

At first we didn't know but when he told us he was hungry I would ask him what he bought during recess. He spent about RM3 to buy food and drink. So there would be another RM5 for him to spent during co-curriculum in the afternoon.

When it was time for a break, he said his wallet is empty. I asked him again, how come it is empty? Where did all his money gone? He kept quiet. Knowing my son, he's the type who is afraid to talk to us what actually happen until we pushed him to us tell the truth.

He told us a boy took his wallet from his pocket when he sat on the sofa. We asked him why didn't he stopped the boy. He kept quiet again. We asked him again and again. Did he recognised the boy. How he looked like. Did he said anything else. He said he couldn't remember and do not know the boy. Mr. Fruitheart got angry and said if he catch that boy he would punch him. Gulp!

So this morning we went to see the teacher and told her about it. She was not surprised as there were few cases as well and it happened every year. There will always be a student who is being bullied by other students. She thanked us for reporting the matter and will look into the issue. Yes, she said it is serious. Of course. I do not want it to happen again and I do not want my son to be afraid to go to school.

It was only yesterday I tweeted about this bully case where I read in the Star, a boy killed himself because he was being bullied in school. The boy was only 13 years old! :( There was another case also, a boy cut his wrist because a friend cut the back of his hair. Sheesh!

I know this bully will be anywhere and everywhere. Not just in school, in the neighbourhood and even in the office. As much as I hate it, it happened to my son. Bullying is a serious act that can scar people for life. True!

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…
