After a wait of 1 month, we finally get to meet and fetch our new maid, Ernawati today. This is the first time we had engaged a maid and I had taken 2 days leave to personally train her in housework myself. Hong Yi has not met Ernawati and will only see her tonight.
She turned out to be rather pleasant looking and seems to understand simple English even though she only has Junior High school education.
Some background on her:
Her parents are farmers but they do not own any land.
She is divorced with 2 teenage children even though she is the same age as us.
She has 3 or 4 other siblings.
I hope Ernawati can fit into our home well and live harmoniously together with us.
