I read in the newspaper recently about maid.. where our neighboring country proposed their people who work as maid to be paid RM600 in Sabah.. If you think about it.. if you have more than two children, i guess its worth it..but if you have two children.. i guess i choose nursery. Having experience both having maid and sending my kids to nursery i come to conclusion of these pros and cons :
Pros of having Maid
I have quality time with my family, time with my husband and most of all time for myself.
I don’t have to rush home, no worries for late charge from nursery especially if i stuck in a jamm.
I don’t need to do the laundry, dishes..and most of the cleaning.. i just supervise.
I have time to cook without interruption… sometimes if i have something on.. i let her cook.
Children can have proper rest at home.
Cons of having Maid
My maid like to arrange things on her own way.. sometimes she misplace things.. and i hate searching for things.. and she don’t know what i was looking for and worse she don’t know where she kept it… i remember the time i was searching for my anti wrinkle cream .. lucky i found it.
She loves to do cleaning, ironing,..but so rough and clumpsy.. imagine now i have to get a new washing machine, iron, standing fan… i don’t know what else.. because i just found out few things broke…grrr..haiya.
I am trying to save cost.. she waste! waste! waste!… almost everything.. from detergent, liquid dishes.. haiya no need to complain lagi lah.
oh ya.. my girl..sometimes speak like her.. grrrr….but funny.
Pros of Sending kids to Nursery/Daycare
I have been sending my children to nursery/daycare, they are more independent and discipline.
have lots of friends…they have somebody to communicate with.
They learn new things, early education… music etc.
Cons of Sending kids to Nursery/Daycare
Tired! tired! tired!… every night prepare my kids things for the next day… and coming back..need to wash all the dirty clothes..hehe… rushing back from work..need to cook, bath them.. so many 2 in 1, 3 in 1 thingy…hahaha..
Not only mummy and daddy tired… kesian also to see my children..wake up in the morning.. and come back do their home work..limited time to play… only weekend lah.
That is my personal opinion.. my maid just left.. she wanted to cancel her visa from her former boss but her former boss want her to work back with her or else her husband, whom are working with the same family will lose his job. When they searching for job..they want us to get them from where they stay..now it easy for them to find a reason to leave… her cousin called me..wanted to work..mmm.. i don’t think so lah for now..
So now.. i am back to square one..but i guess nothing different..only extra work, extra effort, extra patience, time management, cooperation between me and husband.. we even let our kids get to do other chores…so far they doing great. I think we are comfortable now.. i don’t think i need a maid for now. I manage..we manage.. and we survive without them.
You may say… what kind of power am i talking about.. its not about power of magic or your power you have to control your office… I am talking about your inner power.. how you control yourself and others or situation for some reason.
For me, there is no real power without spiritual power. A power that comes from the core of who you are and reflects all that you were meant to be. A power that’s connected to the source of things. When you see this kind of power shining through someone in all its truth and certainty, it’s irresistible, inspiring, elevating. I can feel it in myself sometimes, mostly when I’m sharing an insight that I know will have an impact on someone’s life and I can see that they “get it.” I get real joy from helping other people experience aha moments. That is where my power lies.
I know for sure that in every challenging experience there’s an opportunity to grow, enhance your life, or learn something invaluable about yourself. Every challenge can make you stronger if you allow it. Strength multiplied = power. – OPRAH
Power is something in you… you rule your own mind and thought… you know how to handle situation and people no matter how difficult it is. There are times we feel so down and lonely.. but if you can control your mind you will be able to think differently and positively.
I need to get positive energy and gain power to control my diet.. haha.. i love my body.. and i think my weight are good enough but well… i need to burn fat especially tummy…i am soo out of shape.. I am exercising 30 minute a day.. that is my will power.
Nobody like to do mistakes.. especially stupid and unacceptable mistakes… but i guess sometimes we can’t help it.. nobody is perfect but if possible we try to avoid it.
This happened few weeks ago, when my colleague had a visit by an officer from a Ministry who wanted to attend a meeting. The problem is.. there were no meeting on that day, the poor guy had to call his office and unfortunately his secretary and clerk were out… he managed to get somebody in their office to confirm to him what was written on his notice board … it read ‘jangan lupa besok meeting …..at… date….’ unsatisfied.. he wanted to see the notice of meeting.. need to find out who signed it… they got the notice of meeting….. yes the date of meeting yet on that day.. but it noted Tuesday.. but it was Wednesday that day… i already know where its going… They then check who signed the notice of meeting… the officer who signed it was no longer in that department.. can you guess what happened?
The poor officer.. asked the person from his office to check date of the notice of meeting… teng teng teng.. same date but it was 2008.. dear oh dear.. how could the secretary didn’t marked it for filing or file it away.
I don’t know what will the secretary do if she find out what happened… she might take Slendeslim to make her unconcious for few days…LOL.. and i wonder what the officer will do to her…ooops…thats hurt.
The important thing to do when we are at work is Focus, Concentration, Dedication…and might need training or attend course to upgrade our skill.
Anyway nobody wants mistakes.. touch wood! touch wood!
