    Hi Hannah....my cousin's maid has just returned to Indonesia on 30 Dec....waiting to get another employer...I have her contacts in Indonesia, if you are interested let me know...

    My cousin has to let her go because of financial reason, so maid is ok...she has a 3 year old daughter herself, currently in Indonesia, but need the money therefore willing to return and work.

    Not sure if you contact her this way, does it mean that you can avoid dealing with agent?

    I have seen the maid and she had come to my place also, good natured person, very patient with kids cos' my cousin's boy is very naughty yet she is able to endure...

    Pls let me know

    hai sun , thanks for ur advise ..
    I am not too sure about ur case but wati've understand if the maid is still in singapore
    for my side i only need to change her work permit and sent her to medical check-up and i;m done with the maid.. this was told by mom itself cause previously there was a mummy who also wannna to transfer the maid to us , so we did all the procedures but the maid was rejected as her medical check-up shown that she is sick and cannot work in singapore.. The mummy did not inform me , that's the reason she wanna transfer the maid to me to avoid paying all the amounts that owed by agency, And honesly i don want to deal with agency cause we need to pay a large sum of loan to the agency and plus the agency fees , that would cause us a bomb.. so i prefer to get a maid who contract ends and no loan.

    Hi Puppet

    The maid has worked with my cousin for 2 years...

    She was taking care of my cousin's son - 5 years old now...so since 3 year old if count back...

    Maid had a daughter 3 year old, so she left her girl when baby was 1, so I presume she knows how to manage babies...but twins I do not think so...

    However, she is a pleasant person, according to my cousin, fairly timid, thus obedient, willing to do work...had to hand-wash my cousin's clothes...

    I will provide you with the contacts after I have spoken to her...she is currently in Indonesia...

    BTW, I am pretty new to this...so how do I pm you?

    Hi mummies

    Just curious...maid already returned to Indonesia, so we can engage them (without going thru' maid agency) directly? So what's the procedures? Just buy air ticket, get social visa and when they arrive Singapore then apply work visa?

    Pls enlighten....thanks

    Hi mummies

    Personally I do not encourage mummies to engage maids w/o going thru maid agency as I had a bad experience recently. Just to share with mummies here.
    My previous maid was from Philippines, she bought her own air tik to Spore on social visit for me to interview her. During the interview, everything was ok fine. So i paid $700 to the agent to handle all the paper work. She went thru all the necessary tests and started work for me. However, after 2 days of work, she came up with excuses n been giving me problems telling me she wants to go back to Philippines. But she was supposed to work n repay me back the $700 that I paid to the agent. So i tried to talk to her nicely n explain to her that she still owe me $ and she is supposed to work and repay me unless she can find a way to pay me back the $ and also to pay for her air tik back to Philippines. So she called back home and as expected her family did not get back to her although they promised to. On the fateful day, she ran away from my house to the embassy. End up i have to rush home from work and make police report. I even have to go down to the embassy to settle all these issues like how to settle her etc etc. I end up losing $700 for hiring her for 10days as she had no means to repay me back but luckily she managed to raise money for her own air tik otherwise according to MOM's regulation, employer has to bear for the maid's repatriation costs. After this incident, my maid hunt will be from maid agency. Should the maid is unsuitable at least we can throw them back to the maid agency and get an FOC replacement. At the same time, we wont need to lose out that much. Hope this helps.

    Dear Mummies,
    I got my FDW from Comfort Employment Agency since Ist Jan09..Though she is young but she manage to meet most of my criteria n it really lesser our work load.

    Handling general Household chores is not a problem for her. My hubby n I taught her cooking skills n she really enjoy it..

    Previously after work, I would have to cook for my hubby n myself. If too late, then we buy packet rice. Now with my new FDW, dinner is often served when we return home.

    My MIL can't take care of my new born
    (EDD 18/04/09).Coz got to take care of my FIL ( due to poor health)[​IMG] Hence we employed FDW

    We too engage a CL for a mth (28days) Hopefully my FDW n I will be able to benefit from it.( learn abt babycare etc)[​IMG]

    Mummies, if you are keen to employ a FDW for your household, I strongly recommend Comfort Employment Agency at Bugis . There are three branches in singapore. Bugis, Tampines n Jurong East. I got mine from Bugis main branch.

    Their sales staff are all professional n polite.
    You can look for Jamie Ang at 63384057 for more details...

    Cheerio to all mummies.

    hi mummies ,
    I have a good helper maid ( filipino) who is obedient and follows instructions. She takes care of my two sons 20 mths and 5 mths n She is with me for 7 mths , coming to the 8th mth already( new maid) her loan finished ... My hubby is being posted Overseas and after enquiring about maid visa status, I could not bring her overseas for long ( max two months and she has to come back for another visa application) ... so it is quite costly for me to send her to and fro .. I am nw thinking of looking ard for propective good employer for her since she is quite a nice person. I have not called the agency to open her biodata yet cos I am still thinking if i should leave her at mums place ... if there are any employers interested can PM me ...

  26. chewy_ring

    chewy_ring New Member

    Mrs douglas , Mandy ,
    received your email .. think i have replied .... u can interview her at my place or during her off day.

    Dear mummies ,
    I have to first clarify that due to differences in expectations to work load and committments , it is better to interview her and get to know what she can / cannot perform. My prioity is my kids and she managed to show me that she is patient and caring towards my little ones. she is also clean and tidy with her work thou she is quite slow at times. That is the primary reason I feel that she is quite okay for kids .. however i must first say that it is quite impossible to get a all rounder who can perform everything.. keke .. also i dun need her to cook .. so her work load might not be so heavy compared to some families out there .. hmm ... as detailed as possible i guess i try to describe what she can perform already .. hmm ... and she is only avail in april .

    To all interested parties,
    I have asked the maid agency to open her biodata again. I have spoken to the maid and she is more interested to get a newborn bb or toddler.

    Ho yam chiew , piggo 75
    I just post the message a few days .. not taken yet [​IMG]

    Hi Natasshia,

    I do have a filipino maid who is with me for past 6mths that I need to let go. As I will be quitting my job and will be a stay home mum to spend more time with my 10mth old boy. She is age 25 and have 2 young kids herself - 2yr old and 5yr old. So she is very experienced in taking care of babies. She took good care of my boy since he is 4mth old.
    She already know how to cook(filipino dishes), but my mum taught her how to cook chinese dishes as well and she is now able to cook for our family with no guidance at all. Also she is a quick learner and pick up instructions very quickly probably due to her fluet conversation ability in English. Thus if you are keen to have some one to take over your household chores and adapt to your household quickly, you can pm me at 9436 2889.

    Hi All,

    Just want to share my bad experience with you all here. Lately I've just had encounter with this maid agency named "Jrs Business Express Pte Ltd" located at 420 North Bridge Road, lady boss by the name of Naty. I shan't say what happened as its a long story. All I can say is this maid agency is not honest and truthful. Understand that all agency will sometimes make mistakes, this agency made mistakes never mind, but she refused to bear responsibility for what she had done, instead started being very unreasonable..
    The mistakes she made is not something small, she did not handle matters the legal and correct way in the eyes of the MOM, plus all the advices she gave are all wrong (found out after checking with the other maid agencies.)
    And when she is being confronted by it, she pushed to all the people she can find to put the blame on.
    In the beginning, she sounded so sincere, promise you a lot of things, but once anything goes wrong, all that she promised, she will tell you that it's not possible to do this and that anymore, take it or leave it! She even send an SMS to threaten me. I was so shocked that she will do such things.

    Well, there's nothing that I can do now, I can only share my experience with you and hope that this will stop people from having the same fate as me, please pass this on to all your friends before it is too late.

    I am letting go of my maid. I just left my job early this month to fully focus on IVF. There's not much for her to do since I am able to do the work too.

    Though she's been with me for only 4 months, she was working for a chinese family caring for an elderly couple for 4 years. She left coz she needed to go back to visit her family in Indonesia.

    Let me know if you are keen. Can interview her.

    Hi, I would need a maid to send and fetch my two kids age 7 and 5 next year to school and also to clean my house. This is my first time deciding to hire a maid so am not sure of the procedures.

    If I were to take a transfer maid from here, then what are the procedure to go about doing it? What are the things I need to pay? And is this going to be legal? And if I hire a maid directly without going thru any agency, then what should i look out for?
