Alhamdulillah, semalam saya dah buat full settlement personal loan Bank Rakyat. Sebetulnya saya ada sikit masalah dengan loan tu. Tiba-tiba potongan gaji saya stop walhalkan masih ada baki lagi. Bank Rakyat suruh semak dengan bahagian gaji. Bahagian gaji suruh semak dengan Biro Angkasa. Biro Angkasa kata Bank Rakyat suruh buat potongan sampai August 2007 saja. Bank Rakyat pulak kata Biro Angkasa salah input. Habis tu dok tunding sana tunding sini, masalah saya tak selesai jugak. Kebetulannya tinggal lagi 6 bulan aje so saya settlekan sajalah semua. Tak payah pening-pening kepala dengan kerenah diorang nih.
Sementara kat sana tu, saya tengok-tengok jugak rate baru. Eh, for the same loan amount and credit period, kalau ikut rate baru, kurang RM100 dari yang saya bayar. Maknanya jimat RM7,200 tu! Terus teringat satu program 'You Buy We Rent' by Tropical Camel Ranchers. Diorang ada buat kempen di Menara T* baru-baru ni. You buy a cow for RM7,000 and they will do the rest for you. Annually they will give you RM1,500 in return. Kalau lembu tu mati, diorang akan ganti unless kalau mati disebabkan epidemic of disease or banjir. Saya tak pasti full detailnya. Yang saya pasti, saya agak berminat. Anyone knows a lot a bout this or anyone ada join? Boleh share info tak. Nak harap saya pegi jaga lembu tidaklah kan. Maybe I should start dengan sekor. See lah how nanti. Another loan of RM7,000 kot? Sikit je kan tapi saya tak berani nak keluarkan CAPEX banyak sekaligus gitu. Kena spare jugak for time bersalin nanti. We never know what's gonna happen kan. Epidural anyone? Saya tak pernah try. Last time it was RM800 per jab ek? And they say for C-sect nowadays, it can buy you a bomb. Betul ke?
I'll be going back balik kampung esok. My parents merajuk sebab raya tak balik. I have my reasons (Iman was contagiously unwell plus takut banjir naik semula as predicted in the news) but then tau sajalah mak pak kita ni kan. Sensitif. So, kena balik esok before Kakak starts her primary.
Ok, now, the me story now.
I am in my 21st week now but I look like a 6 months pregnant mom. When standing up straight, I can't see my toes anymore. Just b**bs and tummy. Oh, my b***bs still hurt till today. Normal ke? When I squat, I tumble backwards. I waddle and move slowly. Strangely tho, I prefer sleeping on my back with pillows all over as supports, rather on my sides. And Iman seems to have just realized I am carrying someone (or rather something to him). Last week he asked me to lift my shirt to have a look at the bump. He patted rather hard and asked me to dislodge it! Later he (and Kakak) made curious inspection on my belly button (which is almost flat now btw). I am quite casual about that. When the kids want to see my tummy behind the shirt, I show'd them. When Kakak speaks to Little Muhammad, he'd follow suit. When Kakak rubs her hands over my tummy, he does the same. But not when Kakak kisses. He'd just stands away and giggles. Little Muhammad, like always, responds most to Kakak. Kakak even told Little Muhammad how naughty Iman is! I just hope they can be the best of siblings to each other.
Despite my size, I just gained a kg (if the old scale is right) from my pre-pregnancy weight. I lost 3-4kgs during the first 3-4 months. If I take the measurement from where I lost weight, the gain is like 4-5kgs already. See lah what Dr Ashar is going to say. When nearing to duedate while I was with Kakak, Dr Jemilah put me in 'just little carbo' diet. Eat just what you need, she said. No more sebantal roti and 4 boiled eggs, just for breakfast. Yes, I did that. I was an eating machine. By the 7th month, I was bloated and I could eat my meal with a plate placed on my stomach. I did not even need a table. Really. I gained a good 20kg for that and got myself a girl with 3.5kg birthweight. I later shed the gains, much to some people amazement (and irritation as well).
Oh, I need to go to CIMB now to pay for my excess tax. See you all later. Have a nice weekend.
