Small Surprise for My Boy

I such a bad mom, I lied to my child. On 30th May, I planned a surprised birthday party for my boy. I told everyone except him that it is a small party for his aunt. He bought it! He really didn't know until it was cake cutting time.

I even asked him to change his clothes and he still didn't know. I am such a great actress.

I baked the cake by myself. It is an instant cake, just mixed eggs, water and vegetable oil. Walla! You have a cake. Sorry my dear son, I lied and the cake was not as you expected. He wanted BR ice cream cake. I didn't have time to go and buy it. Plus, everyone else is also working.

My sister helped me to cook fried rice and oglio olio. There's finger foods as well - chicken nuggets and drummet for the kids to enjoy. I called few of my aunties to join too. They were also excited about the bouncer. Sorry, it is for kids only.

The bouncer cost me RM360 for 3 hours (including delivery). They had fun and really enjoy. Some of my cousins also told me to rent the bouncer in future if I plan to have a birthday party.

The only person missing is his daddy. He was in India for work. But he is back now. He told me he will rent the bouncer for our youngest birthday party in November. Location? Unknown. Party? Undecided.

P/S: Planning a surprise for someone is not that easy when it comes to ka-ching!

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…
