Pink: Did she say in front of you or only to mr tan? If it's in front, then she's openly declared war on you. Stand firm my girl.
Re the changing name of your current flat, you'll incur stamp duty won't you?

Moogen: He went 5 times?!? But that really made the trip worth it lah. I was hoping anna and my niece wanted to go more times, but the girls were just too mild. Yah, we saw young school children there too.

rides really end at 8pm? i see if i can rush over at 7pm later :p

star
u teach me. how to? im sure those with pets will have ganjing, mr tan also cant convince her.

moogen
yes, im really boiling inside. the more i think abt it, the more i feel so unfair for myself, for accomodating her, for sharing responsibility with hubby to take care of her as she grows old. in return i get such comment abt me running away with her money. i try to tell myself old pple feel insecure lah.

of cos she didnt say in front of me. my hubby stupidly told me abt her insecurity, to tell me tat we need to give her all the rent even if we fetch higher rent from our place. ya will incur stamp duty.

anyway this option is out. im not keen at all. i told him i made good enough for this one to offset the new one, i dun want to be greedy to get any benefit from her.

pinkpink,
Think sell of your current flat, try to get a higher price. I heard people getting 30k cash above evaluation nowadays. Somemore your area so good.

pinkpink,
Actually your house reno till very nice. Think can get good val. But cos you knock down the wall, will lesser the price right?

huignee
not really. putting back the wall will only cost $1k plus. so i doubt it will affect much.

agent was pressing me to close before my valuation is out but i refused.

New Member
Ash,
Only abit lah, like pinkpink said 1+k to put back the wall. So maybe the valuation will minus 1k+ bah. Last time my colig bought house got merge room cheaper.

pinkpink,
They want to close deal fast.

pink,
same here... cause if hb got money, will also give to his mum first. or thinking that his mum needs more money to feel secured.
u just need to stand firm, and dun care about her comments. she is like my mil, say things without going through her brain once.

I feel like changing one of my maids.. She can't handle anna and she day-dreams a lot. Once I caught her washing Ayden's hair by going over his head with the shower head. But her cooking is not bad, so I'm in a dilemma.

Pink: Yah, don't rush. Must remember agents are not friends. I don't think there are many units available for sale at your location, so for those buyers who are looking at your area, they don't have many choices and have to wait.

hey! i just went to search.. it looks interesting..

“Cranial osteopathy is a gentle way of working so it’s suitable for everyone including delicate people such as the elderly and babies. Babies who have experienced forceps delivery, a long labour or caesarean birth often need cranial work. Those that get colic, won’t settle, seem unhappy or cry a lot are likely to benefit too. Midwives are now recommending some new mothers to bring their babies for a check up shortly after the birth – sometimes nothing needs doing. It would be great if every baby was screened within days of being born.

“People with migraine, sinus problems or head traumas are also likely to benefit from cranial work.”

go fix appt for tiff.. haha!

YT also went on train two times, carosol like 4 times? She also went boating once. Went fishing twice, eat popsicle, did up a window sticker (actually is I do since the paint bottles are huge), play with texas hoops thing. Basically, she has lots of fun!

Pink: Erm.. How big is a 5-rm flat now?

She's the one who cooks and looks after anna.
Anna goes to school in the morning and is back only in the afternoon mah. minus her nap time, and anna sleeps at 8 pm, i think her tasks are not too much for her to handle..

Everytime I think of giving her a second chance (and I've thought abt it so many times), she does something wrong that makes me angry. *sigh* I think maybe our characters really can't get along. And I don't like it that she will try to cover-up for her own mistakes or said that she's forgotten what she said. :p

anyway, i think i'll still change her lah.. cos really no point being angry over a maid.. so will take a risk that the new maid is able to learn how to cook..

Active Member
pink, u are quite cincai, i think you are ok to handle her.
i was quite cincai with my mil too, but slowly i am not getting so cincai now and infuture.
haha!! i can forsee that.

AA, nice cooking is quite useful leh. the other maid really cannot cook?

QQ: The other one doesn't even do cooking back in the phillipines. Her mum cooks for her back home. I asked her to make me half-boiled eggs for breakfast, the eggs became cooked. :p

Qq You havent stay with her yet you are getting less chin cai. It will be worse under the same roof. AA how will you rate this maid from 1 to 10? So far she is better with anna?
 

babylovespink2

New Member
Pink: Your meeting over liao?

She can't handle anna leh. Can't get anna to cooperate with her to bathe, do drawing, to eat, do homework etc.. And she can forget anna's milk time despite anna only has 3 fixed timings.
If not for her cooking, she gets a 2 from me. Because of her cooking, she's a 4.5 - 5 maybe??

I caught her day-dreaming many times. I feel like her body is here, but her mind is wandering somewhere.
And she tries to cover up for her small mistakes or she won't own up to it, she will claim she's forgotten what she's said/done.

So yah, I will change her.

Astro: The young one.. Actually besides that maid you've met at gymboree eons ago with anna, have u met any of my other maids?

I think I'm a bad employer too..
 

astro_pro

New Member
AA: no. i have nt met any of ur maids except that the gymboree one.. so now u are letting go of the new maid? the old maid is still ok?

huh? how did this lead you to think you are a bad employer?
 

astro_pro

New Member
AA: if there's nothing exceptionally strong about her.. i dun think i will consider too much.. ops. i sound mean or not ah? :p

is it now that you feel she is day dreaming.. or has it be a trend? just that you have been tolerating all these while?
 

astro_pro

New Member
AA: ha..
Ellie meets my household's needs well. .. above average.. there is really nothing 'sustainable' that i can pick on, for her.. just that my own self lah.. i feel..think the problem is more myself than anyone else. i dunno what i want. or rather i want everything.. *sigh* .. ha!
 

astro_pro

New Member
AA: i have not lost my temper at Ellie and neither have i outrightly scolded her. But it doesn't mean you scold, means you are bad wor.. scold for a reason.. then it is ok.. i feel..

if it gets to a stage when you cannot stand the person and everything she does, you cannot stand it.. then forget it.. change..

astro wat's ur take on this "Cranial osteopathy"?

my mum keep asking me to bring tiff there.. and she will pay for it.. so i just fix appt.. but i still dun feel .. ermm... dunno la.. sigh

Astro: Looks like you're quite determined.

She's quite new to us. Abt 1 mth or less. I chanced upon her day-dreaming one day and discover she does it quite often over time.

Using the shower head over his head - means spraying his head with water. I mean he's a 10mth old baby boy, shd use a wet towel to wipe the head instead mah.. I asked if she did this to the baby at her old employer's place, she said no. So I don't understand why she did that to Ayden except that she boh-chap or because she thought no one was looking.

Her cooking is not bad and maybe that's why I don't mind when she's new. Have spoken to her in a serious tone before and ask her to buck up. Don't think much has changed..

AA,

wah, i read your post on yr maid... hmm, me getting cold feet... sigh!!

next time will be my turn to write long story on maid liao...
 


astro_pro

New Member
aa: i determined? On?
Interesting how come she admits she does that only to ayden. Is she training him to tolerate water running over his head or what? You know, this is how i feel, i won't keep a maid just because she cooks well.

Mist: that's quite ok liao. You read the papers? My mum was telling me got a blur maid used washing powder to make milk for 2 mth bb! Then she showed it to ellie, my mum hor, purposely one. Ha.

Nana: let me read your c o topic first.
