Have anyone had a darjeeling maid?

Postby dxb625 » Wed, 03 Dec 2014 10:56 am

Hi,

My family and I are looking for a maid and are looking for reviews on maids from different countries. I know it also depends on luck as not all maids are typical stereotypes but with two very young kids, we want to make sure we hire a more reliable person who will not 'run away' and leave the kids at home while we are at work.

Have anyone employed an nepalese or darjeeling maid and can share their experiences? Thanks.

I don't think the nationality or race of the FDW has a lot of bearing on those risk factors; more to do with her individual morals and personality.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

But Darjeeling specifically isn't in the list of approved maid sources ;)

Its part of India right?

Ooppsss


OP, are you watching too many colonial movies???

I think he's referring to Nepal rather than India, its just my guess

I too think he is mixing up Nepal with Darjeeling ..

Nepali maids were allowed at one time, not sure if they are allowed, though exceptional cases are always taken into consideration by MOM !
