Tahun 2020 merupakan satu cabaran baru bagi kebanyakan perantau kerana dilarang merentas negeri bagi mematuhi syarat Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Bersyarat (PKPB) dalam mengawal rangkaian jangkitan COVID19.
Walaupun hidangan Kuzi Ayam ini merupakan menu yang sangat rare bagi saya dan keluarga, tapi craving yang amat. Hidangan yang belum tentu 2 tahun sekali makan ni tersangatlah diingini.

At this third quarter of the 2019 schooling, we received letter from school requesting confirmation for our son next year enrollment.
They need confirmation so they can plan out next year opening seats for new registration. They offered us a complimentary custom-made poncho for swimming classes and apron for art and culinary classes for confirmation before end October 2019.
I share with you all Real Kids 2020 fees for your market survey or reference if you are looking for the rates.
For 2019, as usual my maid permit needs to be renewed before her work permit expiry by middle of September 2019.
I proceed with MyEG Services and chose to self collect at MyEG office. Not like 2018, this time they have change office to its own MyEG Tower at Empire City. That new building is on the opposite road of Ikea, Cycle and Carriage, Mutiara Damansara or easiest same row with MOFAZ Damansara.
Depending on which side of the road your driving from, I was from Penchala Link and waze direct me to other side of entrance. Easier for you to get waze direction since that driveway still messy with MRT under construction.
Back to my point, after MyEG staff settled putting the work permit sticker on passport, I was informed that ‘government’ no longer issue ikad to maid.
But to get clearer picture on why? I also dont know. There is nothing stated as well on immigration websites . I am still digging but no online results found … sigh..
Haahaa.. This year, 2019 is my Indonesian helper 10th years in service. Not like last year (2018) this time, it was way easier to do permit renewal because I didn’t need to send her for FOMEMA check-up. steps for maid permit renewal
Since she just got back from her hometown for two months break, her work permit validity only left about one month.
To make things easy for us before she went back for her hometown, I cleared all the processes. Below is how to renew maid permit for 2019:-
Prepare employment contract with Indonesian Embassy.
Renew her passport. (Because to renew her work permit with immigration, her passport validity must no less than 3 months of expiry from her 1 year renewal term of work permit).
We have been making few staycation trips at Genting Highland just to have feel of living and enjoying view up the hills.
Within month of August 2019, we make 2 trips. Each stay around 2 to 3 nights using AirBNB booking facilities for homestay. Only one of the homestays provides induction stove for cooking which we decided not to spent time on cooking but just eat out and explore food places.
I will share one good place, we hunt for food up here.
Choice #1: NOK SOKMO GENTING TOMYAM – Restoran Masakan Thai dan Masakan Kampung
Location: Genting Permai, in front of GEO38 Condominium.
Latitude Longitude: 3.386584, 101.774920
This restaurant serving delicious halal Thai cuisines which most of the night time all tables are taken. Make sure you come early for dinner (before 7.30pm) so your order come quick and no need to wait for vacant table.
We ate few times there just because of its satisfying flavours and at affordable price.
Ordered same dishes were never bored for me laa. Hehehe. So this was the food that we ate repeatedly.
Price range for all of the above within RM91 – RM94, with 5 bowls of plain rice and ice water or maybe with additional 1 or 2 glasses of teh tarik and kopi O. Food deliciously cook and worth the price. Cheaper for that 5-6 lauk.
It is cheap and good food especially in Genting now the food price is expensive.
You may explore other foods which they also serve ‘masakan kampung’. tapi belum try lagi sebab yang atas tu sedap sangat. ;P
To avoid hassle from my pass encounter I decided to renew her passport 15 months before expiry (due to expiry date which will lapse less than a year if I were to renew her work permit upon her returning).
After settle passport renewal, just realised that I bought her flight ticket before her renewal. Luckily during booking with Airasia to Surabaya, Indonesia i didn’t need to enter her passport number.. Alhamdulillah…
But only one thing need to settle, when I ask employee at KBRI they said no need to transfer her valid work permit sticker to new passport. Just clip together old and new passport and show to Immigration at departure.
hmmm… I decided to not 100% believe it and went to Immigration at Bandar Damansara. The friendly immigration staff told that I need to transfer sticker because once new passport release the old passport consider expired and not valid. Only one valid passport can a person carry at a time.
My maid permit still valid for around 6 months. I have two options;
renew (but will waste that 6 months validity), 0r
transfer sticker permit at new passport with a cost.
I chose option 2. Below i share the costing and documents needed for this option.
Visa Multiple Entry (RM15.00)
Lanjutan PL(KS) (RM60.00)
Proses PLKS Pembantu Rumah (RM125)
Letter request (Permohonan sticker permit kerja berikutan pembaharuan passport pembantu asing)
Letter authorisation (for representative)
copy of work permit (old)
copy of old passport (front and back)
copy of new passport (front and back)
This process took around 2 hours (subject to crowd of the day). That’s all. Thank you.
