my mum employed a maid to help her with the cleaning. she did not have one for many years...using a part time instead, but you know these come and leave after 5 hours, once a week.

the myanmar maid picked up quite fast.
when facing the 2 old folks, she appeared obedient. just 1 week at my place, she exposed her true colours. last night, I managed to find 2 selfies of her with full make up and dressed up like a peacock. they were taken at parents' place. I forwarded the pics to the agency.

having a maid is to help with housework...instead, she is the start of problems.
when mum thought of getting a replacement, the costs of a new risk came up to $780 and chunk of this amount goes to MOM.
She is a YOUNG girl after all mah. My helpers plug eyebrows, use facial foam and apply hand/face moisturizers before they sleep. As long as the carry out their duties responsibly and diligently, what they want to do inside their room after their working hours, we just close one eye? Got a lot more vain ones meeting BFs outside during their off days leh.

So long as she does her job properly, behaves obediently in front of your parents and most importantly, your parents are alright with her. Changing a new maid has other risks and ($780) is not cheap for retirees.

yl,
in front of parents, she sure acted goody goody. it was at my place her true colours showed.
she has been sitting at the agency for 5 days. if mum takes her back, she would need to monitor her.
that would be stressful because nobody knows what the maid will do or will she be up to any monkey tricks.

I agree. Saved me so much time! Vacuuming + mopping was such a boring & time consuming chore that I was all too happy to unload onto my Xiaomi Roborock. DH programmed it to run on timer once a day. Now I don’t even need to bother about my floors.

Also it helps us keep the floor clutter-free. We’ve gotten into the habit of keeping our stuff off the floor. DH and DS get “nagged” by the robo’s alerts whenever it sucks up one of their dirty socks left lying around lol.

That's interesting! Where did you buy your Xiaomi Roborock? How about its aftersales warranty? We are also planning to buy one sine we have read lots of positive reviews about this product.

Having a full-time maid is not necessary if the household activities are scheduled for all members of the family. Aside from saving money by not hiring a maid, household chores could also serve as a fitness exercise, especially for our kids. These activities will also teach them how to be independent and to know the ho to's of managing their own home in the future.

anyone experienced sending your maids stuffs eg. clothings back to her home country before ?

you bring the stuffs to courier company and pack there or they can send boxes for you to pack, once boxes are ready, you call their men to collect from your home ?

My friend has tried to do this two years ago and I think he asks Jolly-B to do that. Check their website: http://http://www.jollyb-box.com/ or email them: support.sgsin@jollyb-box.com
