20 Years Ago vs 2014

Me and Mr. Fruitheart took the LRT to work everyday. We've had enough of heartache and cursing during our time driving all the way to work and back from Jln. Tun Razak to Bulatan Pahang. It became worse during rain. Once in a while if we have an agenda only then we drive to work.

We were both chatting and there were few people heading to same direction with us, to LRT Gombak station.

People were busy with their smart phones. We can hardly see two people talking or reading. All eyes and both hands were busy admiring their small electronic thing. They were so engrossed with their gadgets.

Mr. Fruitheart said, 20 years ago people hold their books or talked to each other. People laughed and talked. But now when they do that, some would give them a weird look or even raised their eyebrows. Seems like they were being disturbed by the noise.

Do you remember when was the last time you smile at someone in the train? Smile to a stranger? I did yesterday, to a lady. But she didn't smile back. Oh well, I have to admit now that smile is not contagious.

Remember strategy game we play? Yes, chess.

Now, we are busy playing online strategy games and fight with another person on the other side of the world. Especially those games in Facebook.

P/S: We could ended up being like the people in Wall-E movie.

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…
