First Week of Aidilfitri 2014

It's 10th of Syawal today. Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri again people. Hope all of you had a nice long holiday and enjoyable time with family and friends.

Our first day of Aidilfitri. This year we chose yellow. We were supposed to take family pictures together, unfortunately everyone is not around. My parents went to Kuala Kangsar and my second sister went back to his in law. So we've decided to celebrate first day with my in laws too and went to KK next day.

As usual we went to visit my FIL family side from noon to evening. It was challenging with a baby and toddler because they needed their nap. Poor baby had to be disturbed. Cranky all the way. Good thing was they slept well at night, tired.

And the next day, we started our long journey to Kuala Kangsar at 11am. Reached Ipoh - M Boutique Hotel at 2PM. We booked the place since my aunt house would be full with her children. I do not want to jam packed the house. Later that evening we went to meet up my parents and sisters at Kg. Ribu, Kuala Kangsar.

On 3rd of Aidilfitri, we went to Taiping Zoo. I thought there would not be many people. Boy I was so wrong. The place was big and it was scorching hot. Baby girl didn't have much fun, she was sweating and both my boy and girl enjoyed the visit. My sisters tagged along with us, yeah they were bored. No 3G signal and they couldn't live without it. HEHE.

I went back to Banting on 4th day of Aidilfitri - 31st July. It took us 6 hours to reached home. Highway is not advisable and we took the non-highway road. Phew! First time I've reached Felda Soeharto.

On Saturday we were home. I can see that my children were super happy they were home. Awww.. they missed their bed.

P/S: A quick update.

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…
