The Realities of Hiring a Live-In Maid in Singapore

One of the many hiring agencies located in Singapore. You can find them in almost any mall.   

Living in South East Asia makes certain lifestyle choices possible that just wouldn’t be an option elsewhere; crazy cheap massages, high quality but low priced beauty services, and what makes life convenient for so many of us- live-in help. Having a full time helper can be awesome, but it certainly has aspects to it that most people simply do not consider. I was speaking to a friend from Mexico the other day on the topic and his jaw dropped when I told him some of the things that are normal in the life of a foreign domestic worker. So I’ve decided to share some of the knowledge I’ve gained while having a helper because it really is an interesting, but odd experience.

So before you hire a line-in maid, here are realities of hiring a Live-in Maid in Singapore that you have to consider before going through the process.

These ladies were so excited when I asked them if I could take their picture. They were having an early Christmas celebration on their day off.
