    Helper's Helper

    I have read some posts where people refer to 'Helper's Helper' as a good resource to use when employing an amah.
    We have just moved to HK and are completely new to the idea of a helper - and to be honest I am not convinced yet that employing a helper is the right choice for us. It is really hard for me to imagine having someone live with us and difficult to understand what a helper would do all day long.
    We have a 3 yr old who will start pre-school in Aug/Sept and I am currently not working but my husband works long hours and travels a lot. Interested/open to exploring (and hubbie is really pushing for it - mostly bc we are not really into cooking but love food) so for now looking for tips on how to get started with the process and what to do once/if we find someone.
    Does anyone know how to get a copy of "Helper's Helper"? Can I get it in a bookstore or order online? Appreciate any input and advice.

    Ok - kind of answering my own post now but...
    Snagito - just found this link - http://www.shopinhk.com/product.php?productid=1510
    Also found a great post/thread by the author Julia Jacobson.
    Need help with your helper?

    Perhaps we can meet up when you are back from your holiday - we will be in Parkview until the end of May. Cheers!
