Lain kali kalau boleh jaga anak-anak sendiri, uruslah sendiri…
Seriously friends. If you can afford to take care of your family without help from maids, don’t start. As some of you kno, I recently had to send back both of my maids to Indon. Satu, sebab habis kontrak. The other one because she ran away from home! Long story short, she ran away from Subang when I came back to KL recently. She ran away to her sister’s place in Muar. Fortunately I have the majikan punya phone number, warned the majikan to call me if she sampai sana. Luckily, she DID went there and luckily also, majikan adik dia jujur. She ran because she heard the majikan is looking for another maid, and since she didn’t want to jaga budak-budak (kepala saya lagi pusing nggak bisa jaga anak-anak), she thought running away to the sister’s place would secure a new job for her. Padan muka dia, as soon as she arrived, she was sent back to me. And on the same day also, I took her back to KK untuk mengelak lari lagi. Sialan betul la… Nasib baik la aku belum repot polis. Tidak kalu, menyusahkan!
So itula ceritanya… Maidless for now. Waiting for the new ones to arrive this weekend (hopefully). This is the third day me managing the children. Abu pulak ada di KL. So far so good. I’m not totally without help. I’m staying at my mom’s place and since everyone is in KL now (only my aunt and cousin at home with us), I have people to help me bit. Yesterday, I managed to bring the girls out to the office and for groceries. Left baby Yam at home for about 2 hours. Again, I am fortunate that my girls are not that difficult to manage. Khadeeja takes care of her own business. Meena ada merengek sikit but that’s because she had fever last Sunday. And Yam is being taken care by my mom’s maid when needed. And since aku menumpang rumah orang, I only clean the room I sleep in and the toilet I use. Phewwww!!!
Moral of the story; kalau boleh buat kerja sendiri, never ever take maid. Nanti jadi macam gue, MALAS… Sigh… I need an attitude change.
