I do not think that there are any filipino part time helpers..
You can try to approach agencies for local part time helpers.
They are usually chinese aunties.
Cost about 10$/hr.

I know a really good confinement lady if you need one, was the best part of my post pregnancy.

She's from malaysia, gets along well with other helpers, helps out with other kids, helped organise my kitchen and trained my helper to cook chinese food, excellent cook, honest, will do the wet market shopping, cooks all the herbal stuff, makes a daily herbal bath, does the night shift with the baby and extends its sleep hours (or can wake you up if you want to breastfeed), does confinement for people with restricted diets (vegetarians, muslims, jews).

The negatives - she doesn't speak great english but more than good enough to communicate and likes to talk...

call her to book her before calling your parents to let them know the good news! she gets booked out fast and to many overseas assignments.

PM me or email me at singaporecarolyn@yahoo.com
