You seriously think that with parliamentary and presidential elections this year, anybody can really say what Indonesian policy will be in 2017?

Say only what. Say also cannot meh?

This was what I heard from my maid when I employed her (8 mths back). Did not probe further as did not want her to know how "interested" I was. Apparently news were already circulating among them in Indonesia.

Employ other nationality lor. They are not extremely good what. Just get use to other nationality can liao. :)

I feel in future, maid salary + levy may be too expensive for average household income family. So we have to think of alternative too.

To me, my kids already P5 & Sec 1. So by 2017, if maid is really too expensive, I may give up totally of having maid.

My friend and colleague now also not interested in maid. They put their baby/kids in infant care and childcare.

2017 still have 3 more years to go. Plan ahead. :) So we wouldn't be kancheong by than. :)
