Our long awaited 'maid' finally arrived last Thursday! Since we sent back the cambodian maid that like to 'throw up'/vomit so much.....we had selected at least 3 maids with some application in progress but only to be cancelled later.......due to various reason:
- one already ran away while still in Indon's training centre (thank god she is NOT here yet....)- one has her medical condition failed or something (had to cancel only after a 1-2 months waiting period)
Huby was so pissed of that he had initially wanted to terminate the idea of getting the maid and claim a full refund from the agent (failing which we were prepared to pursue all d way to the consumer tribunal). But as i spoke to the agent, the agent quickly sent over 2 biodatas to me where she promised that these are full-document maid meaning the process is going to be express. The agent promised that this will be the last round for us as they too felt sorry for the long delay. According to them, the supply from Indon is really lacking nowadays! So i managed to convince huby to give it a try to save all the hassle of claiming for refund & etc etc.
But my ultimate objective is to get the maid asap to reduce the chores that my mom has to endure right now at the sametime babysitting my 2 monkeys!!
Anyway, true enough, our maid finally arrived in 3 weeks time.
So far so good.......pleasant outlook, quite responsive type.....much to our expectations !!
Certainly small eater, according to mom who bought her a pack of economy mix rice, she can eat that pack of rice in 3 rounds in a span of 3-4 hours, coz it was too big for her to finish one shot so in the end she couldn't take dinner! But she also mentioned that the frequent car ride made her lost her appetite to eat so she might take sometime to adjust.
Sometimes, those food that we reserved for her dinner, she will eat a little & kept the remaining balance for tomorrow's breakfast...............wuah, like very 'jimat-cermat' type hor....of course we dont' complaint that.....just hope that what we've encountered so far are all genuine & the evil fake tail WILL NOT eventually show up!!
Another good point to my surprise is yet been mention......hahaha
I gave her the time-table. When she looked at the time she is to wake up every morning which i'd set at 6am (as all of us would leave our home at 7am either for school or work), she commented as follows (i actually took awhile to digest what she meant):
maid: mam, if i can't sleep that long & i wake up at 4am or 5am, can i do work ahh ???
Are you also scratching your head ahh?
I clarified & clarified and finally i got myself understood. According to her, in Indon she has gotten to wake up at 4am (the most) for one of her 'praying session' coz she's a muslim. Once she woke up at that time, she will not be able to sleep back & she will begin her day and retire latest by 9pm!! Fuyohhhhhh........i told myself, aiyo, u wana wake up so early to do work, i'll be more than happy lar.....u say 'gila' or not, but then again, i hope i'm not too early to judge.
Of course issues like bit slow, bit dumb & other common things are all on her....but those are expected !
Time will prove everything yeah......
