You will have to hire a local person to get this kind of setup.

Foreign domestic workers are required to live in the same household that they work.

There are agencies that will be able to help you out with this sort of thing, we got our live out maid from one of those listed under Sunday Morning Staples list (check any of his posts and the URL at the bottom), the agency we got from there was good, although I know SMS does not personally vouch for any of them.

It is a relatively expensive way of doing it ($12-$14 dollars an hour for someone who speaks good English), which if my maths is right comes to over $2000 per month for full time.

Check the terms carefully too, some maids/agencies limit the amount of some other activities that their maids do, ironing is a typical one.

I also suspect that employing someone full time for housework is also a bit much unless you live in a very large house. For us a part time maid coming two mornings a week was more than enough, but that depends on your circumstances.

Im very interested in applying the job if its still available..
I've been in and out agency asking them to help me find the employer that also giving me time to do my own thing and life, but most of them simply dont understand my request and said no..
All i can say for now is that i'm independent and responsible, given the experience of 12 years working and i have letter of recommendation.

Thanks :)

Are you a PR or Singapore citizen? If not, cannot.
