The Little Two Year Old Girl

There are so many reasons to love and not-to-like the terrible twos. I have a daughter who just turned 2 years old last 2 weeks. And my adventure continue.

Now she loves to say "I don't want to be friends with you" other than saying "NO". But I'd love to hear the way she said it.. "Tak nak wawan abg Syahmie" "Tak nak wawan daddy". Those toddler slangs. Just yesterday she said she doesn't want to friend with me, and I replied back.. "Fine. Don't come to me if you want anything."

After 5 seconds, "Mama, what are you doing?" Heh.

Now she truly understands she has a baby sister. She has become the most protective big sister ever. She would cry and scream if a stranger, basically my relatives, wants to hold her baby sister. She would say "Give back Rania to mama!" and pull her legs from whoever holding her baby sister. Yesterday morning, Mr. Fruitheart playfully hit her baby sister's butt, she said "Don't hit her" and gave her daddy the fierce look. I was laughing hard. Mr. Fruitheart looked at me and said "So protective."

Every moment in my little 2 year old lives bring new discoveries. Yes, she throws tantrum like other kids her age. Meal time often a war zone and sometimes we struggle to take her out of the bathroom. As a 2 year old, Arissa knows what she wants, a demanding person at times, have very high spirit and determination. She's a great helper too. When I was busy with dish washing, she's busy "organising" the food cans in the cabinet. Yes, she enjoyed helping her mother with house chores. I pray and hope I still have my high patience for another 16 years.

P/S: Arissa, my little miss independent.

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…
