the hanging is to "straighten" the clothes and for most material, eliminate the need to iron; others only minor touch-up ironing is needed.
cool...will consider should one day my family decides to wear clothes LOL kidding

hi Schellen and Buds,

Thanks for answering my desperate PMs on this matter. And thanks for hearing me out too......

Actually, they will only start next Monday. But I have brought them there to check out the place and meet the teachers.

Buds : will give you my assessment after next week..... 8-)

You're welcome! :)

Do note that since next week is holiday week so what goes on at the student care centre may not be representative of the activities/schedule during term time.

nice to find this topic and at the most appropriate time.....I'm also thinking of "releasing"my maid earlier due to some attitude thingy even though with me for 3 yrs...(hmmm wonder if its the longer they are, they tend to be more relax) anyway I'm also wondering if I can do without her...My kids are 2,4 and 6, staying near parents and daddy is willingto help me take care of the 2 older ones.I'm thinking of arranging the youngest to CC as I'm still doing some home biz....
Roomba is one of the option that I'm looking at, wonder about the cost...if the spree is on, pls let me know....
Hope to find more ideas here as now I'm still hesitant about releasing her, kind of fearful of what I'll faced....
