"SHE" is here finally!!!

"SHE" who is she? Someone ask me "SHE", S.H.E from Taiwan? hahahahaha..

"SHE" is my new replacement maid! She is finally here last evening. Exactly a long 4 months waited!!!This round i get ourself a cambodia maid,i think it's a new challenge as they don't speak our language, and we dont know their culture. Not like indon maid, almost same culture as us, can speak malay maybe just slang different, and food almost the same.

So far still not sure how is her work. But i got a big headache to communicate with her. Yes, she dont speak a single english!!! She speak to me in her own language, how am i going to understand? But i still speak to her in english and with some sign language.And she do have a dictionary which is translate from English to her own langugues. But so far i dont know whether she understand me or not. My friend saids, why not i just get my maid and my boys to learn English and Mandarin together gether! hahahahahahaha

Hopefully this one will turn out a good one. Keep my finger crossed!I don't mind she dont speak English, i know it's need to take sometime to train her and i just hope she can work well.At the mean time, i think i will still put my boys at the nursery, i can see that my boys are happy at the nursery, they got a lot friends to play with
even though, non of them are chinese. All is indian and malay, but good that my boys can pick up some malay words from the older kids.

And good things is my boys like the new "kakak". They let her to change them and bath them last night.I think it really take time, and i hope she dont run away this time! *sigh* - pray hard!

Congrats on your 'new arrival'...hahaha... Wow, you have gotten yourself a new challenge by hiring a Cambodian. Good luck in your communications...heheh... Hope both of you will come to understand each other soon.

IMMomsDaughter said...

Anggie's journel said...

All the best to u ... but how u all goin to communicate with her ??

EstherL said...

so envy u, very soon u can hav 'ME' time again...

Jacss said...

congrats or not leh??
dun know lar...but at least like u said, u have better peace of mind in that d chances of her running away is slimmer than indon lor!!

now... it was my dilemma whether to get camb or indon but due to cost factor, we fall back to indon but must be at least 35yrs above... not so 'gatal & liar' hopefully !!!

anyhow, time to relax a bit....hehe

good luck!!

I thought you didn't want to get a new maid. But I guess Cambodia maid is better than Indon maid. More expensive to get a Cambodia maid? I got to know a maid from Cambodia in Brae's Kindermusik. She is quite good and speaks English and Mandarin too.

Hopefully you won't have headache with the new maid.

Etcetera~Mommy said...

I heard Cambodians are not bad... prob is only the language part. But trust me, their rate of adaptation will surprise us. Good luck ya~

i think is better than indon maid lar, since they are pretty new in malaysia, cannot really do much among themselves. so they tend to stick with the family more. just the communication part may be a bit difficult. but they will learn since that's the only way to communicate - english. let us know how it goes after a few months.

Elly said...

hey, how's ur new maid doin? how's the 'chicken n duck talk'? hope everything goes well with her and u cld at least take a break...it's hard to juggle esp with twins n u r FTWM. really 'pui fook' for what u've been doin.

Sweetpea said...

and since she doesn't speak any of our language, i doubt she'll run away. my friend has 2, but they speak basic english, and she said they are better than indon maids.

anyway, good luck :)

mommy of 2 angels said...

1+2mom said...

Mommy to Chumsy said...

jacss: read my post first than u decide whether u want to get indon or cambodian.hahaha ;)

khongfamily: this is the replacement for that run away indon maid. Ya..a bit costly to get cambodian maid, but still cheaper than Philipino maid. Now problem is still communication, maybe they need longer time to pick up our languague or english or mandarin.

etcetera~mummy:ya, i heard too, cambodian maid is good. Maybe the earlier stage will be suffer a bit because of the communication problem.

whoisbaby:ya, their community in malaysia still not so "wide" so a bit safer than indon maid ;)This is the reason y i get cambodian maid.

elly: ya, still 'chicken n duck talk':( hahahahaha

sweetpea:ya, i heard too, that's y i get cambodian maid.;)

mommy of 2 angels: read my stoly..stay tuned..hahahaha

babysashanmom: if can get ur ex maid than that's better, no need to train her all over again, and yet she knows ur family and your kid well.That's good!Glad to hear that she is coming back to help u.

papajoneh: thanks for dropping by my blog.;) Wow another 1+2!U're super dad! Y not go through agent to get the maid? Ya, i know it is tough, even though myself with two already go bonkers if w/o any help from maid, and yet u got 1+2!! Good luck to u too!

twin: thanks. And thanks for dropping by my blog.

Min: miss me? hahahahaha..since ur sister with u ma, so i dont kacau u lo.

healy: yea..it's not easy at all! Problem is the communication part other than that all ok. Tag? Oh no..another tag, i owe so many ppl tag..hahahahahaha ok i will do it. Thanks for passing me the tag.
