    Work History

    1. In the Philippines
      1. She worked for a textile company from April 2002 - April 2003 in the Quality Control department.
      2. And as a sales assistant at a retail garment shop from November 2003 to August 2005
    2. She went to Qatar in March 2015 to work for a family of 4 which included two children aged 1 and 2. Madam was working and left care of the children to Diana. Cooking was by an Indian maid. She left in July 2017 after 2 years and 4 months, though the standard contract is for 2 years.

    Most of her married life she was a housewife except for some 4 years where she worked away from home. She can cook Filipino food and says she that extended family (her own nuclear family and her in-laws) enjoyed her cooking. She enjoys cooking and is a self-taught cook, relying on cook books when she wants to try something new. She is looking to learn other cuisines.


    In Qatar she took care of 2 chilren aged 1 and 2 at the start during the 2+ years she was there. Furthermore she is also a mother of 3 children whom she took care of herself - she was not working. She is fond of children.

    Diana is neat and tidy, dresses simply but smartly, as one can see from her photo. She is polite and patient.

  4. Transfer maid Winnie, with only 2 employers in 17 years, must surely be an employer's dream maid.

    Looking for a helper who does not job hop? Look no further!

    1. Between Jun 98 to and Aug 04 (with a 2-month break in between), she worked for the same family taking care of 2 children aged 7 to 12. (During her 2-month break Madam did not find any skeleton in the cupboard!)
