Just a quick post, RaeAnne learnt to say 2 new words these 2 days. Nice (sounds like Nai) and Zip (sounds like Jeep though). :)
Filamie's attitude improved since late last week. Maybe also because she earned her first pay check and got to buy a SIM card, and today, she talked to her husband. Today, her Filipino recruiter came to Singapore so we arranged with the agent to bring the recruiter to my house to give her a pep talk. She told Susy that she is very happy working here and she is very lucky to have me as an employer. REminded her in front of Susy not to repeat the mistakes that she made. At the end of the short session, suggested to her to send her money via Susy back to her family. She wanted to buy her son a bicycle with her remaining $20. The rest already spent on sim card. But end up, got to use the money for her son's school items cos hubby has no $.
Oh well, will continue to monitor the situation because if she improves, no point in me training a new maid cos it takes time and RaeAnne needs to readjust again. Experienced maids have a different set of expectations which I may not be able to match. ;P
