    Helper recommendation

    Hi SG Gal,

    I used an employment agency for my indonesian helper and so far the service provided by the agency and the helper they recommended are good. These helpers go through intensive training before coming to HK and mostly know how to speak English and Cantonese (learned at training camp). However, I speak to my helper in Malay most of the time.

    If you are interested, below is the relevant information:-
    Agency - Megasea Employment Agency Limited
    Person I liaise with - Janet Lo (Customer Service Officer).
    Direct Line - 21939568
    Office - In Mongkok and Causeway Bay
    Agency fee paid - HKD1,400 (including their insurance, medical check-up, air ticket, etc.)

    Hi girls!
    Wee Kean, your National Day party sounds really fun! I will be back by then so definitely count me in.
    You are most welcome to bring your baby to Bel-Air's playroom, it is usually deserted in the daytime so lots of room for them to roam around. Then maybe we can have a coffee at my place! Email me at [email protected]. This invite extends to all in this group, ok!!

    Hi Kara23, WeeKean, et. al.

    Not Malay myself, but hubby spent 10+ years in Malaysia before moving to Canada... and we both love Malay food (esp. beef rendang and ko loh mee!). Have a 17-month old that gets exposed to Malay only when visiting friends/family in Kuching/KL... Is it okay to join up with you guys once in a while? Can't do it all the time as you guys live on the opposite end of the island from us!

    Merdeka Mini Celebration

    Dear fellow Malaysian,

    Re Merdeka Celebration, is it ok if we start early, say at about 11.30am? This is because we can go to Gymboree free play session at 2pm, after all the chit chat, National song singing, play and makan makan...

    Please let me know if this is still ok for you.

    HL, the chili paste that you gave me was sooooooo spicy!!!!! It was fantastic!!!!!!!! Thanks very much!

    Har,
    I am in the processing of getting an Indonesian helper to come over to work for me. I called up the number you listed and guess what? they want to charge me $13,000 !!!!!! that is the most expensive agency charge I know from calling several agencies. Mind if I ask how you manage to get 1400?

    incidentally, was reading this thread with interest as hubby and i are both malaysian and we both miss malaysian food heaps. good authentic malaysian food, that is. our daughter now 11months was born 30/8/05. too bad can't "hold her in" to give birth 1 day later coinciding with merdeka day. haha.

    kara23, you mention you live in Belcher's. Do you by any chance work in HKU (I used to and travelled pass Belchers every day; also know many belchers residents who work in HKU)?
