That’s true.... you can claim
She didn’t tell u

Ya by right cannot. But lets say i as employer dont inform MOM, and let her finish her contract in Nov and go back, nobody will know right?

My current one is Myanmar, she is hard-working but sometimes stubborn. She treats my daughter well, but a bit over, she trends to train her like her own baby, always threaten my daughter if she doesn't listen to her, she will go back Myanmar....

Bumping thread.

In the midst of hiring a helper, so the more info the better.

The general consensus is it's better to get helpers who are already married and with kids, rather than someone who is single?

there is always pros and cons..

got family:

miss their kids, miss their husband konek.

singles:

some don't have the love for kids, ****y itchy, lack of love.

I always get married ones with kids, far more mature and responsible and less wayward.

The single ones that I have hired never last long and always give me a lot of problems....coincidentslly both were Myanmese....

My helper is Malaysian from Johor. I give her offdays every 2 weeks on weekend. I believe Malaysian Chinese better choice to take care of children. Some of them can cook really well.

I heard too much horror stories from my friends and ask my confinement nanny for recommendations. The pay is $1600 SGD a month if anyone wondering. Might be twice expensive as an indo one but at least peace of mind at home

Good to hear that there r employers willing to pay for good reliable helpers from Malaysia....kudos to u....

I am still using Pinoy helpers...current one S$580 with each Sunday off...ex Middle East with 4 kids and a sad marital hx....but good worker and good attitude...cooking slowly improving....

I am also not a fussy employer, as long as no attitude problem and keeps house generally clean, honest and can click, should be ok....

But handphone is an issue....cause most expect to use it daily after work but my hubby very strict, says only on offdays....and made her sign against it....

I think importantly is kindness and understanding on employer's part...if employer is kind and understanding, maid likes u and u like maid, should be no problems....

Food must give, they also humans, they come to work is cos they no choice.. who dun wan to be at own home shake leg...

treat them as family, auntie or friend.
Mine is older den me.

Let them know your lifestyle, sometimes close 1 eye..
I eat what, they eat what...
*Before you eat, take a portion for her, NOT ASK HER eat left-over.

Once a while, call home ask her if she need supper, if wife go out, bring her go shopping, walk walk.. den get back b4 the kids get home..

Treating them good also hv to see if its worth it or not. some are knn also..
I have 1 b4, can like eat till no tomorrow..come SG like sightseeing..
I find taking a portion for them before I eat very tiring after some time, I keep asking them to take but they paiseh...sigh...like have to serve them everytime....

My current one who is new eats a lot of our leftovers but she says she doesn't mind as in Middle East also like that? And she doesn't want to waste food.....but I keep chiding her and telling her not to do that but to take a portion of what she cooks for us...sometimes I tske for her but I can't be taking for her all the time right? My prev maid of 4 years not like that...will do as I say and not feel paiseh...

MAID ANNUAL LEAVE

My current maid have completed her 2 years contract and I plan to renew her for another 2 years.

If renew her for another 2 years, is it they are entitled to yearly paid home leave ?

Depends on what is on your contract with your fdw. Some agent stated that on the contract. Some employers give that out of goodwill or as bonus for good performance. And home leave is for recontract. Otherwise, it’s just a one way ticket sending your fdw home. You have to read the t&c on your contract carefully.
