Daily dinner cooking

Dear fellow parents,

Does anyone know whether I can engage someone to just go marketing and prepare dinner daily at my place? Does such a service exist? I have used tingkats before but would like food customised to our taste.

Thanks for any comments.

It is difficult to work out such an arrangement. If you pay too little, the person will think it is not worthwhile. Pay too much and you will feel it is too expensive. It is difficult to strike a balance, as it is difficult to quantify the time spent doing the marketing, cooking and cleaning up.

Besides, to cook to your taste and specification is also not easy.

This is atricky situation. But the best way is to get house help, train them on how to prepare your favorite meals. That's the most probable and realistic ways out.

Yeah - they’ll need training first before they can cook properly. I sent my maid to a restaurant for a few days to learn
