    Any reviews on PEM Confinement Agency?

    We had a really good nanny called Jin Jie 金姐 from PEM agency. Like many others, we were worried about getting a CL from agency after reading some bad reviews. But it was the CNY period so we didn't want to risk having freelance CLs cancelling on us last minute. So anyway we got a CL through...
