    Carang, you can get this thing from nowtv / pccw which is both nowtv (limited channels / but you choose) and a landline. It is a small screen and you kind of talk through the screen for phone calls, but my helpers liked it and they chose that over either nowtv or landline separately. It costs about $199 per month. I'm sure you're locked in to your respective pccw deals but might be worth a thought in the future.

    we always gave our helper a cash bonus for xmas and a gift. sometimes my son drew her something, we've given her bath things and last christmas we gave her a portable dvd player which she loved since sometimes she's babysitting late night and has to remain outside in the living room in order to hear the kids.

    for all major holidays - xmas, CNY, easter, birthdays etc...she always eats at the table with us. For all other meals, she eats in the kitchen when she wants and by herself.

    liquorice: thanks! i will check it out! i have had an absolute meltdown at PCCW a few days ago. They made a contract for $XX/month. no mention at all of auto pay.... (i WILL NOT autopay with them. they overcharged me almost $7000 before i figured out what was going on about a year ago.)... now they say (after everything is signed) that if i don't autopay, then it will be more.

    will consider what you suggest.

    I am going to get my helper a package of foot massages she can use when she is waiting for the kids while they are at their chinese class. That is something she can also use on her day off.

    Bonita, yes that is the one I think.

    Just bought Pizza Hut vouchers for my helper. Great idea for a gift.
