A child in Indonesia named after you ?

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.

A child in Indonesia named after you ?

Yes. That is right.

My friend's domestic help flew back to Indonesia because her sister gave birth to a baby boy.

My friend received a phone call from the family over there to ask if they have his permission to name the baby boy after him as a gesture of their gratitute to him.

Isn't that nice ?

Sounds like a nice gesture... Hopefully the domestic helper doesn't have many pregnant sisters... :smile:

My friend and I both have our own domestic helpers for more than 10 years. I guess it is a 2-way thing. They are treated like family, with respect and concern.

Your friend maid Indon or Filipina?
I heard so many similar stories. My mum's maid almost 10 years. Mine 4.5 years. I wonder if it'll be like that for us too when they go back. I was just discussing with my mum a month ago about what will happen to my maid when she grows old since she is not married. My mum's reply, "you and your children take care of her lor if she work so long. Like family already".
