Foodgasm Festival 2.0 at Tmn. Rimba Kiara TTDI on 12th Oct

My outstanding entry on our last weekend activity. As I mentioned on the title, this food event was organised by Rock + Tulips Associates on the 12th October from 10am - 10pm. It was held at Taman Rimba Kiara, TTDI. We reached the place at around 1030am and there were already lots of people. Malaysians, we love FOOD!

It was our first time having a picnic in the park. I have always wanted to do this, but there will always reasons and excuses of not doing it. HEHE. And, my in laws also have joined the fun. Weather was not that good that day, hazy and hot. Despite that, it doesn't stopped people from coming and having fun.

I had planned to sit under the little tent provided by Dakota Dearest. They set up a few and there were already patrons under each tent. Knowing my husband too well, he hate waiting and standing there staring at those people until they finished. So we looked for another picnic spot.

I have been scrolling the pictures of food vendors whenever they posted on the foodgasmfest IG account. I became hungry and mouth-watering by looking at those delicious food pictures. I told my self, looks good must taste good too. Not necessarily. I do not know how many food vendors were there. A lot of booth were set up and there was inflatable pool for kids to play also giant bubbles too.

I saw people holding this and I thought it was a real flower pot. It was actually ice cream inside a flower pot. Those were chocolate spread. And they said the queue was incredibly long.

Not forgetting the LLOONNGGGGGGG queue to buy drinks too. They should have set up another 2 or 3 booth for drinks even though the only one who's selling it were the organisers themselves. Another thing, they should provide more trash bin because human being will not take their 'garbage' back to the car and back to their home and throw them into their garbage bin. Enough said.

Their coconut ice cream is super delicious. Kiddo thought it was vanilla ice cream and when he tasted it, he liked it. He never liked coconut before this, but their ice cream sure changed his mind.

My kids had so much fun with the giant bubble. It was available for renting (not for sale?). RM10 each and RM2 to top up the soap if I remember it correctly.

And baby girl sweating from head to toe, ate almost everything in front of her and enjoyed the empty bottle like a little drunk baby!

Overall, we enjoyed our picnic and would love to join the fun again in future if they ever going to organise again. I hope they do take action on the comments people posted on their IG, twitter and FB account about the drinks and garbage bin.

P/S: I should plan more picnic activity with my family.

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…
