Good indonesian maid

Postby iberis » Fri, 24 Sep 2010 1:05 am

Hi all

I have a good Indonesian maid for transfer. Reason for transfer is she sign up for enrichment course with her community and have to take every sunday off which I cant afford since I need to work most of the weekend.

I wish to find her a good employer who can give her every sunday off. I can advice on how to do transfer paper as she is really good and i wish to her help without her paying agent.

Rgds,

You really have no compassion. One day a month off? You really ought not to be allowed to have a maid at all.

I think she meant that both herself and the maid can not be at home on Sundays. Hopefully the maid has at least one weekday off outside weekend.

x9200,

Wanna bet? If it's an Indonesian maid, then it's doubtful that she's a christian so Sunday's should be no big deal. Friday's would be their Sunday equivalent. :-|

No... in another thread were the OP is seeking a replacement for this maid, the OP states that she can only give off 1 day per month.

Like I said, she shouldn't be allowed a maid.

oh no SE, they can't get a day off because they'll steal from us/mix with other maids and learn all the bad things!! they're sub-human anyway so don't need a day off, can survive on 2 packs of instant noodles a day and can't ever miss their family, that's why they're can't call home cause their job performance will suffer if they talk to their kids and miss them!! what's wrong with letter writing??? it'll only take 3 months for the letter to get to her family and maybe another 3 to get back... but make sure you send the letter to a person who speaks tagalog/bahasa to translate first in case she is sayiing anything bad about her employer!

oh, how could i forget, they have to automatically know how to cook singapore style food the minute they come! .

disclaimer: sorry for the rant, i frequent another forum where they openly discuss such things and have given up arguing with them on the abuse they are doing! just glad to find people of the same mindset here!! if you wanna see what i mean, read this: http://singaporemaid.blogspot.com/2010/ ... maids.html --- that's the mindset! i know i know, i should just stop reading it but it's the masochist in me!

pstsy_sg, you will have to get a billboard for carlsum1986. Some could not see blatant sarcasm if it were printed on their forehead. I actually like your tongue-in-cheek response. Shame some cannot see it when it's sooooooo obvious.

Next time, use this:

Hello - I am interested in your maid. We are a family of 4 (plus cat!) from England living in a 5 bedroomed house. We are looking for a helper who is a good cook and can do general housework and occaisionally look after the children who are 10 and 8. Do let me know if she is still available.

no worries... good thing I read SMS's reply first (scrolled up rather than down)

But serioulsy, this is an issue I feel very strongly about.... the treatment and the way they speak of maids (and any other non-Singaporeans) in general is appalling.
