I got an Indonesian maid! She has been with us for a week. This maid is not employed to do domestic chore for time being. She is currently helping me out in the shop.
She arrived here last Wednesday and since then, she has been following me to the shop every day. I like her as she is young and daring (not afraid to approach customers and talk with them), and initiative. So far so good. She able to operate the computer and key in receipts, helping me with the filing and stocks. Some more she is a Chinese, so it is an advantage as most of my customers are Chinese. Just that I need to monitor her, don't let her go overboard (you know what I mean? :p
Actually she was recommended by my MIL, this maid used to work in a hair salon for 2 years before went back for CNY this year. MIL said that this maid can be lazy if she wants, so I need to be strict with her.
Now that she is with us, it is our responsibility to apply the necessary visa, bring her for medical check up etc. Sigh! It is not cheap to employ a foreign worker. How much? Anyone can roughly tell me how much would it cost to get everything done? I never employed an Indonesian maid before.
