Happy 3rd Birthday Nur Leia Arissa

Last Friday on 22nd May, it was my second daughter's birthday. She is three years old, another four years she will be in primary school. Gosh! They're growing up so fast.

One thing about my second daughter that I noticed now is her bashfulness. Since she was little, she has this one of kind morning attitude, the face and no smile. Unlike her baby sister who is always seem to be happy waking up in the morning. Yeah, each child is different and unique.

Dear Arissa,
Happy birthday to you my beautiful daughter.

You are a smart girl. You have the courage and high determination. You are not afraid to tell us what's on your mind.

"Daddy, please put away your phone. Teach me how to build this doll house."
"Everyone has a phone but I don't have one."
That's what you said when we were on the bed and busy playing with our smart phones. OK. We hear ya girl. HEHE. (Amek kau!)

You showed us your responsibility and loving care towards your baby sister. You protected her very well. Siblings do fight, sometimes but it won't last long. Next one minute, all the three of you were smiling and laughing again. Your daddy told me, just enjoy the moment and embrace the chaos.

You will always remain as my baby no matter what age you are. You will always carry that little piece of my heart and soul with you anywhere you go.

Sometimes we may scold you, sometimes we may also get angry. Sometimes we might nag you, sometimes we might punish you for not behaving properly. But no matter what we do, no matter how annoying we may seem – always remember that whatever we do is because we want you to live out all your dreams.

Your happiness and your success, these are the only two things we want in life and we are doing everything we can to help you get them. I love you so much my dear Arissa.

P/S: We may not have a party for you every year, but your daddy and I will always make sure you get the very best on your birthday. That's our promise.

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…
