Grandparents and Grandchildren

It's the TIME again. School holidays. It is only a week school holiday and almost coming to an end. On last Saturday, my father called me and asked when will his grandchildren come home.

You see, long time ago he would've asked me when I will come home. But now he only asked when his GRANDCHILDREN coming home. Do you sense any jealousy there? No right?

Looking back to old memories, I enjoyed everytime we visited our grandparents. Plus, I was the first grandchild on my mother's side. All the attention to me. I was spoiled by my grandparents on my father's side too because my father is the youngest. I always followed my grandparents everytime they went back to Kuala Kangsar. And I always get what I want. See how the evil, spoilt grandchild laugh came out? Unbelievable.

So now when it came to 'spoiling' my children with everything by their grandparents.. emm.. well.. I would say, NO NEED. NO THANK YOU. My father loves to spoil his grandchildren. No longer spoiling me and my other siblings. Kena marah lagi adalah. The attention has diverted to the little-size-boy-and-girls-who-depending-on-mommy-and-wearing diaper.

"Atuk nyumnyum".
"Atuk let's go the shop. I'm hungry."
Atuk, there's a new Lego I like. Later when you give me money for Hari Raya, can I buy it using that money?"
"Yay! Atuk came back."
"Atuk, can I follow?"

Atuk here and atuk there. Everywhere atuk tuk tuk.

I can see the happy wide smile on my parents face when they hear their grandchildren voice. And the 'gedik-gedik' grandchildren expression when their grandparents entertain them. Enjoy the moment while they're still alive. Thank you GOD for giving them the opportunity to spend quality time with their beloved grandparents.

The only enemy grandparents and grandchildren has is the parents.

P/S: I missed my grandparents. May their soul rest in peace.

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…
