When we move into our new house, hubby is getting a live-in helper to look after the housechores and kids. At least he can take his hands off the kids (no need to look after the kids after office hours) since I have to be at the shop every evening.
It does sound good having a live-in helper. However after listening and reading about some Indonesian maids, I have second thought of having foreign maids. I had one Indonesian helper before, who helped me in the shop for 9 months but after she gone back for CNY this year, she never come back. Waste of money spend on her work permit and passport, but there is some thing we cannot control, right?
So we are looking for a local girl that would be willing to work as our maid. It would not be much work actually. Simple housechore in the morning (no need to do cleaning daily since we only at home in the evening and sleep). As for the kids, by next year both kids will be in kindergarten, so she only need to look after them in the afternoon. By evening, if I can spare my times, I would pick and bring them to my shop.
Sound smooth, but got to see once we move in and we able to get a helper. Need my MIL to find from kampung. Suppose to have one Indonesian maid, and my MIL said she is very good in work. However after working for my MIL in her canteen, the maid decided not to come to Kuching and work for us. Probably the kids factor. Not many maids want to look after kids. Lol!
