TAWC - Make Ahead Meal End of Ramadhan Month

It's 19th of Ramadhan. We're going to meet Syawal in 10 days. That was fast. And on last Tuesday was Public Holiday in Malaysia due to the Nuzul Quran. I decided to make my once a week meal. 2 hours of sweating, screaming and praying for my meal to taste good. Puasa kan.. rasa makanan takkan sama dan dengan nak melayan kerenah anak-anak yang aktif itu adalah sangat mencabar.

My upper freezer is full again. Yay! I bought my fresh produce at the TTDI market early morning when everyone were sleeping. Did my shopping for 40 mins and spent RM70. Not bad. Why me and Mr. Fruitheart found it expensive when we first bought from there last time? No idea.

So I made ayam paprik dengan kacang panjang dan lobak, kari daging dengan kentang, sayur bayam bening and kangkung goreng. I bought fish, washed it and marinated to make it easier for me to cook later on some other day. Oh by the way, is RM10 for bawal hitam expensive? It's big. No right. I know I should've bought it.

I managed to get 4 packs of ayam paprik, 3 packs of kari daging and 4 packs of bayam. That could last for 2 weeks as usual. I had kangkung goreng for break fasting and sahur. Nice home made meal.

Sometimes I envy my girlfirends who has time to cook after they reached home. With kids some more. I cannot concentrate my cooking when my girls are crying and need attention. That is why I opt for once a week cooking. A good invention to full time working mother and housewife like ME.

P/S: I used to dislike cooking when I was young.. ehem teenager.

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…
