Family Vacation 2015 - Krabi Day 2

On our second day in Krabi, we went to the few famous places suggested by our friendly and kind tuk-tuk driver which I totally forgot his name. Sheesh.

Our first stop was the Giant Catfish Farm located 10 minutes drive from the hotel. My children love fish. We were greeted by a very nice and friendly lady who is not local. I didn't get the chance to ask where she's from. The area is filled with ponds and few aquariums. It feels like going to a jungle trekking. In addition to the catfish, there are also turtles and crocodiles. We saw a wild boar and boy we were scared when it came out from it's shed. It was huge and black and yeah ugly. HAHA. We left the place. Sadly to say, the place is not maintained. They could have at least clear the passage for tourist to walk.

Next, we went to the outdoor aquarium. I thought the aquarium was somewhat like what we saw in Aquaria KLCC. NOT. The centre houses different kinds of marine life - mostly fishes being put in a large saltwater lakes which will be released later back into the sea. There were also Hawksbill turtles, sharks and some giant groupers which I wouldn't dare go near them if I ever swim in the sea. Our favourite were tanks filled with baby ‘Nemos’, or anemone clown fish. Wish I could keep them. Same as the Giant Catfish farm, some sections of the site are not well maintained.

The centre is located on the right-hand side of the main road through Ao Nam Mao, approximately 1km before Fossil Shell beach which is the next place we went.

We visited the Fossil Shell Beach at around 11.30AM Krabi time. It was a very sunny day and honestly nothing much or fun there. My girls were afraid of the dead crabs they saw on the rocks. We left the place after spending about 10 minutes there.

They said, every trip is not complete if we did not go for an elephant ride. We were all excited and it was our first time riding on an elephant. My eldest and youngest ride on a male elephant with Mr. Fruitheart while me and my other daughter ride on a female elephant. Both my girls were a bit afraid of the elephant. Overall, they enjoyed it and even asked for more ride in the future.

So that's the story of our second day. Pictures will be uploaded later.

P/S: My long overdue post. Life is too full.

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…
