Instead of giving them weekly off day, why MOM is not giving employer an option to let maid live out? Like Hong Kong?

after you add on the lodging, transport, food allowances, I think you may not wanna consider employing the maid liao.

Oh yes! And if you want her to work beyond the normal working hours, you will have to pay OT and also arrange for transportation.
