Myanmar maids

With most families being dual-income-with-kids, outsourcing home cleaning and home economics to domestic helpers is almost a way of life for Singaporeans. Come in and discuss issues pertaining to maids and home management.

Telecom interview (WhatsApp, Viber...) but if they’re not in Yangon or they’re in Chin State, connect may be poor. Ask them if they can buy a India SIM Card. Better reception for them.

Ask very detailed questions. Don’t just accept a “yes mam“ answer. Ask them to describe their day fr the time they wake up, how they wash, how they cook whatever dishes. Ask them what they get for salary when they started, not bundle after eyer pay them off-day compensation. Some can’t cook & just microwave food or only cook maggi noodles or porridge (without ingredients)!

Pls get them to do medical checks before applying WP.

HI guys , i found my myanmar maid placing a pair of her shoes under my bed. Is there any particular reason why she did that? I am worried if it's a curse or something like that?
I am a Burmese grew up in Singapore and I employ Burmese maid. Please do not let her put any shoes. I don't know what it means but maybe someone might have told her to do so.
Sorry for the late reply. Yeah i told her to remove it. Someone told me it's like a ritual thing.

I think really depends on luck lar. My Myanmar helper with me is really not bad. She took a little longer to learn and adapt but my observation is that Myanmar maids are more obedient and loyal.

We also had a bad experience with our former Myanmar maid. She only stay for three days. We caught her on the CCTV that she is trying to open our locked closet. We called her agency and asked them to replace her with a trustworthy one.
