10 Goals for This Week #29 2015 + Update on Last Week's Goals

Wohoo! It's the raya week people, another four days for Muslims to celebrate Aidilfitri. Insyallah, we will meet again in next Ramadhan.

I will be going back to my hometown Banting on Thursday night. My boys baju Melayu is not ready yet. I may give them a call later to check on it. I have asked my dearest father to pick up my girls baju kurung.

Kuih raya? I bought them all. I don't have that much time to bake. The house is clean, yay! The cleaner ladies came on Saturday. Sweeping I don't mind doing, I just need them to do other stuff like removed all the cob webs, clean the bathroom floor, wipe the sliding door glass and window.

Another thing I hate to do is packing. I have to pack for five person including myself. I have made the list, phew! Perhaps I'll do that on Thursday.

Oh and I went for my first orientation at WOU. My class will start on 25th July. At one point, I do not if I can do this. Everything is paid and I-MUST-CONTINUE-STUDY-AND-DON'T-GIVE-UP-YET! I pray and hope I really have high patience, courage and strength to go through all. Work, family and study.

So here goes this week's goals:

Less yelling and frustration with my children. (Should put this every week)
Read and take note on tips for balancing school, work, family.

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…
