I have found a most wonderful maid.

All the case studies to date seem to suggest that foreign maids from the Philippines, Sri Lanka, India, Myanmar or Indonesia are such horrors who are worse than useless. If you feed a dog, you derive the pleasure of watching the dog wag its tail on seeing you. But the horror maids, in return for the salary you pay and the food you feed her with, far from making life a little more comfortable actually damage the clothes she is asked to wash and iron. Or she may talk on the phone for hours leaving your little children unattended and perhaps exposed to dangers.

However, from the postings led by Gloria at expatsingapore, it appears that there are indeed good maids who are truly an asset to their employers.
