Before coming abroad to work, Supiyati had worked in her own country as one
of 3 maids for an Indonesian Chinese family in Jakarta from 2000 to
2005. She was young and inexperienced and her only duty was to clean and
tidy up the house, a 4-bedroom bungalow with 3 toilets and 3 bathrooms,
tidying up the garden, cutting the grass, etc. and washing two cars.
- In 2007 she went to work in a maternity
home (in Penang, West Malaysia) helping new mothers during their one-month
confinement. She was one of 15 assistants. Her duties were mainly bathing
the baby, changing diapers and sometimes preparing formula for mothers who
needed to supplement breast feeding with baby formula. She worked there for
5 years until 2012.
- In Apr 13 she came to Singapore to work
for Susan Lim whose household comprised herself, her husband and her
stepson, his wife and their 3-month old baby, cooking, laundry and general
cleaning. All went well until Supiyati had a case of severe food poisoning
and had to be hospitalised. On recovery her doctor prescribed rest for a
whole month. So she went home but regretted her decision for while at home
she was up and about after less than 2 weeks recuperation. She was idle for
two months, until a new job offer came.
- She returned to Singapore in May 14 to work for
a Singaporean Zainab bte Hassan whose family of 4 included two grownup
children. Supiyati's duties were laundry and general cleaning. With
Madam's daughter (who was not working) doing the cooking for the family,
Supiyati seemed to have time on her hands. Madam used Supiyati to help out
in her business. When MOM found out this breach of Work Permit rules in
Mar 15, Madam lost her privilege of employing a foreign maid. Now
Supiyati has MOM's permission to seek alternative employment.
When she was not working, Supiyati helped with the household chores
including cooking simple dishes such as
- sayur lodeh (vegetables in mild curry)
- lontong, mie rebus, gadoh gadoh
- ayam cabe hijau
- tumis sayur
- fried rice
When she was working for Susan (Job 2 above) she learnt to cook Chinese food
and was able to cook independently such dishes as
- steamed fish, sweet and sour fish, fish with chilli sauce
- chicken soup, sweet and sour chicken
- stir fried vegetables
- vegetable soups (spinach, lotus root with chicken and peanuts, old
Supiyati has taken care of a baby from the age of 3 months. From her
experience in Penang where worked in a Maternity Home, she is confident with
a newborn baby and is willing to sleep with a baby and do the night feeding.
She loves children and can work with pre-schoolers and other young children.
Supiyati is neat and tidy in appearance. She is quite
soft-spoken in spite of her experience (12 years away from home: 5 in
Jakarta, 5 in Penang and almost 2 years in Singapore). She has a pleasant
personality and should get along well with young children.
