This morning send my maid 'Black Dot' to the airport at about 5.30 am today to catch the first flight back to Jakarta. The first day she was here when I gave birth to Ee-Thern. Time flies in just a wink of eyes and it is already 2 years she has been working for me. Yesterday, before Ee-Thern and Le-Ann goes to bed, I get them to say GOODBYE to their kakak. My worried is my little boy, scared he will look for kakak cos everyday he will look for kakak to make milk, kakak to carry, kakak to bring him for a walk, kakak to bring him to wee wee, kakak to make him Ribena. But thank god, he didn't mention about his kakak when I pick him up from baby sitter house. Sis is right, 'out of sight, out of mind'.
The decision to get a maid 2 years back came into our mind cos Dearie Suki worried we can't cope with 2 babies, with Le-Ann just 15 mths when Ee-Thern was born. Hence, we get a maid in order to help me to do the house chores and to take care Ee-Thern.
The first day 'Black Dot' came to our house, I feel a stranger just entered our house. I am not used to it as though someone I am not comfortable with came over and stay with us and not knowing what is her background like. With me having a post natal depression, I was telling Dearie Suki I want to get rid the maid the very next day.
From what I see, she is one who is from a poor family background. Poor, bullied by hubby and got 3 kids to take care back home. The first 6 months when she was here, most of the time in tears after receiving letters from her mom and brother mentioning her hubby married another woman.
Before she left today, my single cent of advise to her is that, learn to be a SMARTER WOMAN when get back to Jakarta. As long as you work and have money and the kids is with you, why so worried about her hubby getting married to another woman. Biarkan saja la.
After seeing her get through the custom officer, I left and gave her some money for her to have her breakfast inside the airport. Also reminded her to call me back when she reach home. Waited till evening and still no phone call from her and I was telling Dearie Suki, she is not a so smart person, don't know whether she board the correct plane or not.
Oh gosh, the next few days will try to cope to do the house chores and will cook less unless Dearie Suki came back early and help to take care the kids. Next plan is to call up an agency to get a part-time cleaner to come over my house every weekend.
