What do you need for an Amah room and where to buy the furniture?

    It depends on your helper. Some helpers are not used to air-con and prefer fans. Some, however, prefers air-con. Ours prefer using an electric fan with timer function.

    We're putting in an air-con for our helper. We bought her a fan but it's just not enough. Those small rooms get so hot. i'd hate for her to not sleep well at night and be grumpy all day long with my son.

    We're getting an air-con from Fortress. they're not too expensive. Maybe $1000 or $1500.

    We haven't given her a tv but supply everything else, new bed, bed sheets, blankets, toiletries, wardrobe etc.

    Thanks, When I found a helper, I will ask her firt if she prefers an aircon or a fan...I think this must be provided, I would not sleep in the heat.

    By the way, I ordered furniture today at "Jade Rattan", Wanchai! Great people, very helpful, came to measure and not expensive. They know how to store a lot in a small room...she will have a great room - we made the best out of it with a bed and a lot of storage underneath, and two extra cabinets tailor made!
