Happy 2nd Birthday Nur Leia Arissa

Dear Arissa,

Today is your second birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRL! Better believe it that you have been in our lives for two years. How time really flies when you have small children. Even Rania is already 6 months old.

This morning me, daddy and abg Syahmie wanted to sing you the birthday song. You were not in the mood because we interrupted your beauty sleep. After we arrived at grandma's house, you were smiling again. You just don't really get it that it is your special day. Maybe when you're 16 then you will ask for a lot of presents or even a big 16 year old party.

If I remembered it correctly, you started talking around 17 months and you haven’t stopped since. You will remember those words we said to you and would say it back to us in your own toddler language. Like Happy Birthday To You, you would say Happy Beyou. It surprised us that these few days you would request for the birthday song video on you tube to be played. It is like a sign that you know your birthday is coming.

You had your big 1 year old birthday celebration last year.. together with abg Syahmie. I'm sorry the 3 of us have to share only one celebration since were on the same month. We shall celebrate our celebration at Legoland next week. Yay! I can't wait.

And one more thing, you love to sing. Yes to those nursery rhymes especially Twinkle twinkle little star, baa baa black sheep and old McDonald. Yes, not forgetting the mischievous things you did. Ahh.. sometimes you really tested our patience. But at the end of the day, we knew we have come to the development part of you being '2 year old mischievous' attitude thing.

As a toddler you love ice cream, cakes, watermelon juice, chocolate and swimming pool. Oh I could go on and on about all the things I have learnt about you, I'll end this by saying I love you so much and thankful to be your mother.

You know you will always have our love and support. May you have a great year and glorious life ahead.

P/S: I do not know what to get you on your birthday. It will just have to wait.

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…
