ya my maid also wakes up in the middle of the nite to carry baby..when my baby wakes up. I also wakes up. then i also allow her to nap in the afternoon...but she didn't. but she sleeps at 10+ lar..sometime earlier if my boy sleep early. i guess is a 2 way thingy...u treat her ok..she will try to be nice too... but don't spoil her.Usually they cant request more $$ just cos take care of newborn. But some of them cant take the stress and strain of taking care of newborn. I picked a maid who is more mature and has a kid herself so she is very patient with my boy.
And sometimes my boy sick, she stay up to look after him, I'll give her permission to nap with my son in the afternoon. My maid wont nap, she'll onli lie down beside my boy when he nap. She just lie there and rest only. she dare not nap even though we gave her permission already.
Hi stonston, may I know how do we apply on our own? How about the clearance at Philippines customs, what documents do we need to prepare for the maid to pass through the customs?If you have contacts for maids who have ready passport and want to come to SG, you can go to MOM to apply on your own.
Hi, happen to see your post here. I read the review of Asset Recruitment Agency. It has very BAD review. Since you engaged their services, can you share with me more? thanks.Asset at Hougang Green (2nd level small agency at the corner)
But warn you first, so far I dont have any good experiences with their transfer maids or Filipino maids. Best recommended you get experienced indon maid (best worked in west msia for big family - ang moh or indian family) cos their command of english is slightly better and their level of hygiene is better also.
my previous indon maid (very good maid also) worked for ang moh family. the way she look after baby is very professional, like hire private nurse like that. my current indon maid worked for indian family (very rich family), her level of hygiene is higher than mine n she looks after my son very well.
try to get those with kids, cos their motivation factor to work hard is their kids. my current maid wanna work hard here to send her son to private school and i've even helped her work out a budget to pay her his fees when he starts school next yr (and i'm helping her to send her money direct to the school for his fee payments, and some cash back to her family for expenses).
but again, it also depends on luck. tell the agent your requirements and see how they recommend
May I know your agency name? Do you have any good transfer maid that you can recommend me also ?My agency fee is only $88, They let me separate the payment of loan into 2 month installment. Maid loan $1800 (transfer maid just work for 4 mths) Fillipino maid. She is good also. Really depends on luck loh, my sis paid agency fee for 400+ but the maid not very good.
hi mummies, anyone knows if its like against the law/illegal if the maid sleeps in the living room?
during my off days i intend to bring baby and maid back to my mom's place, and theres not enough space, however my mom has got extra mattress etc. Is it ok if like 1 or 2 days a week she has to sleep in the living room?
