Maid Questions

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

So you slave away from 9 to 5 playing wannabe, Cambodia fortune 500 CEO and the wife spends countless hours in hair/makeup prep for various super model stunts.

aaaaaaand the housework gets done, how exactly?

Just kidding....shit man, now I feel all guilty about having the wife's sister slave away for us around the shack. What a lazy sod I am.

No maid. I suggested to the Missus to get one, had a candidate and uniform and all, but the Missus balked. Not sure why.

How dare you be a diligent mod and post an on topic reply when we could have derailed it further with more pics of sexy Asian maids. :evil:

Luckily my folks were always more worried about our house being "lived in" than being on show to keep up with the Jones'. As a consequence my pad isn't utterly spotless as it might be with a maid, but that dust is my dust - from my own skin shedding off & floating around my house!! Occasionally I'll see a cobweb in a corner and I'll thank the little sod under my breath for building his house there & nabbing a few mosquitoes before I have to tear it down when it becomes a bit nasty to look at.

Generally it is more about a sense of accomplishment on tiny little things before starting my day; sweeping leaves out front takes 5-10 mins, make the bed, wash down my moto, etc. Dishes always washed (by hand, miss a dishwasher honestly) before bed; I do my son's clothes & my washing Wednesday & Saturday nights, hang them up before bed, get them in the following night before bed (no mosquitoes there like the morning) & I'll spend maybe 30-60 mins doing a bit of vacuuming/dusting/gardening on Saturday morning after football depending on which area really looks bloody awful.

In light of Hanno's contribution to the thread (and getting us back on topic after Lambo's shameful diversion), I'm reassessing this routine. :hattip:

I also need to put in a swimming pool. For the new cleaner.

I used to have an old lady cleaner who'd come round every 2 weeks for a couple hours to do my fortnightly 'big' clean because there's no fucking way I'm doing any mopping or cleaning toilets, fuck all that noise.

She's stopped coming round tho and sends her daughter and her tasty friend instead, great days.
