School Homework

There are times I had to pinch myself to realize that I have a son who is going to be a teenager. This year he is 11 years old. What the heck? Didn't I just gave birth to him in 2004? Hoi Fara! That was long time ago. You gave birth recently in 2013. You have 3 kids.

Now since he is in standard 5, he noticed that his homework is no longer getting easy. He told me he needs to concentrate doing his homework because he is in the first class. *roll eyes* And he even told us to quickly send him to Cambridge class. His English teacher told the students they need to speak in full English during the lesson. Panic attack.

The day before he had difficulties in solving his Bahasa Melayu homework. He asked me and I said I do not know.

"Didn't you go to school and learn this before?"

How dare he? Grrrr! I told him I left standard 5 for 23 years. I don't even remember what I learned for algebra! Until now I do not know which part of my life that algebra applies.

He laughed at me and said.. "Mom, you're getting old."
Yes son I do realized that. Thank you for reminding me.

We are living in the IT world aren't we? So I googled the answer. Yeah google helped me a lot in finding answers to boy's homework. How am I supposed to remember and know what Kata Sendi is? Or what is Imbuhan Pinjaman? If it is Maths and English, yes I do not need google much. I may need to buy extra book for Tatabahasa Bahasa Melayu later on.

P/S: Maybe if I am a BM teacher it wouldn't be so hard isn't it? Heh.

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…
