She Had Chickenpox and The New Found Remedy

I have little time to update my blog. Gosh! How busy and time flies so fast these days.

Alhamdulillah, baby girl's birthday and aqiqah went well last Saturday. I will post update about it soon. And it just has to happen a week before her 1st birthday, she had chickenpox. I saw some red spots looked like rashes on her tummy. And I thought it was nothing. On the next morning, I saw more red spots on her legs, thighs and hands. Definitely chickenpox Mr. Fruitheart said. *Cries*

So I worked from home the whole week to take care of her and keep on praying her big sister or brother would not get infected. Yes, they had it before. But, they can have it again. On the second day, Mr. Fruitheart's boss in UK told him to mix warm water with brown vinegar when we bath baby girl. Now where do I get those? I Googled and found this:

No brown vinegar, but brown rice vinegar. I told myself, sama la tu.

Thank God Mr. Fruitheart found it at Jaya Grocer in the organic section. RM15.90. Phew! And after 3 days, her red spots lessen and by Friday just before her birthday celebration, no more red spots. Yay! Works well, wonderdul! Yes, and she smells like potato chips for few days. I feel like munching her. HAHA. And, the bad side of it of course our bathroom stinks.

The traditional way, my older relatives told me to find 'daun semambu'. I remember when I was little my parents used to gave me that. But where I can find here in KL? So, in the future I know what to do and suggest to other parents.

P/S: I love this new finding and solution.

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…
