My Cambodian maid of one year, sigh... don't know what to say about her..
She drives me up the wall but yet, she's not the worst of maids.
I told her twice to crack the ginko nuts (pak kor) , peel the skin and freeze them. I need the ginko nuts to cook my favourite Hin Hua soh-meen for Chinese New Year. Anyway, she had cracked the nuts for me twice, so I'd assume she knows what I want.
Yes, maam ! Yes, maam ! (standard reply from any maid)
Anyway, couple of days later, I checked the cctv and saw her watching tv all evening, I checked on her work. I was stunned to find the whole pack of ginko nuts in paper and in freezer, uncracked, unpeeled !!!!! I asked her why ? She just smiled and could not give me an answer. Kek Sei Ngor !!!!
I wonder if :
-she'd understand my instruction
-I'd explained clearly enough
-she's trying to be funny ??
Someone sent me this article, so funny and it's so, so, typical of my maid :
Is your maid like this too ?
