A Mother's First World Problem

I was going through my Facebook time line and saw this post from Money Saving Mom. I couldn't agree more. It is so ME! Then I tagged Mr. Fruitheart, he replied.. sooooo true with a ghost icon. Not a surprise ey? 

A lot of times we've been talking about being away on vacation without the kids. Mr. Fruitheart said, what's the worse can happen to our children? He even added, they would be even more happier with no-yelling-mummy around. Sobs sobs. Hashtag - theclingymom.

My numero uno concern is of course WHO can and willingly to take care of my kids. We do not have a maid. My MIL already said Nooooooooooo which automatically my FIL said no too. HEHE. My father is still working on alternate shift, so does my other siblings. The only one left is my sister who is soon going to give birth. Not like I'm going tomorrow. Heh. By the time I am going for a holiday, my nephew is already a big boy.

Taking care of additional three children and two of her own is NOT going to be easy. But, my kids are well-behaved when they're with my sister. She's what they called TIGER MOM. Even her daughter is afraid of her. HAHA. Fierce more than me. Mr. Fruitheart said, then it is one good thing if our kids stay with their aunt. Of course, I need to find someone else to help her. But who?

The second thing is yes, the image says it all. I am SO GONNA MISS my children. I said it many times, I need maybe 10 minutes alone. But after that, I'll be thinking about them, talked about them even when it is not needed. Just to keep me remembering them whenever I go. I feel like if I don't do any of those, I am a bad mom. HAHA.

It is not going to be so bad after all Fara. They will be just fine. It is just that, you are not ready to let them go and not ready to be apart from them. Maybe when my youngest is four years old, then I'll have my vacation alone with Mr. Fruitheart in PARIS!.

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…
