Majority of SG agencies are to some small & big extent limiting their liabilities, defecting either to the FDW or push to eyers to bear.

Unlike in the very old days, where helpers are at least trained more thoroughly, the current generation of FDWs are entitlement orientated & what they learned are mostly fr peer FDWs how to “get out of contract” to cut short their woes the moment things are not within manage (incidence which wld hv been averted if proper training are given). H’ever, I must qualify there are those in this generation of FDWs with poor attitude, not wanting to give their best foot fwd.

I hope in good time, MOM can establish compulsory & comprehensive FDW training that goes beyond a one-day familiarization or what they call settling-in course. Many things cannot sink into a young girl’s mind so immediately esp when they’ve nvr leave home/travelled out of their country & the mind and emotions are cluttered. They’re easy prey to negative influences. IMHO, a new girl need more than a day to learn abt a diff culture & to behave in a society w/o taking things to a violent end. Sad

As the Father narrate and "reenact" the incident, can tell that the poor girl is mentally scarred... "Luckily", it's just hands and not somewhere else like the face.

Sighs what a lousy and vile maid....no surprise where she's from as well....the maids from that particular place I've not heard many good things about them.....stubborn, not trained...come here as princess for holiday.....very self entitled...not here to work hard for $$....I think more regulations should be in place for them ( from Myanmmar)- Often times i think they just push these young girls here and these 'young girls' dont know what is expected of them in a 'helpers' role....

Hi friends with babies or kids, do you allow your helped to take care of your babies when they wake up in the middle of the night? or do you guys do that yourself? Just wondering if I should let my helper sleep in the baby's room to help if anything.

On a side note, does any have an electricity retailer to recommend for a home with 3 adults and 1 baby? Our consumption has increased quite a bit and was considering switching to Senoko Energy - they have an online promo with lower rates.

Hmm, I guess it depends on how badly u need the maid and how big is ur hse.
Mine she will go to one corner whenever we are having a conversation. Takes sometime to adjust I'm afraid.
If possible, try not to have one unless bobiam eg, need them To tc elderly or children
