Compare Filipino to Indonesian maid


Compare Filipino to Indonesian maid

Filipino maids:Christian

– Most of them are Christian.  If you happen to be one, you have a common god and you can bring her to church on the weekends.  No fasting month for them.

– They eat almost everything so when you bring her out for dinner, there are more choices of food.  You don’t have to look for Halal food restaurant.

– Most of them use toilet paper.  But I have noticed some from very poor villages do not use toilet paper to wipe after they pass motion because they cannot afford toilet paper.  If their task is to prepare your food, you have to train them to use toilet paper and explain to them why it is important to do so.  

Education is compulsory in their country so most of them have minimum secondary education.  Some of them went to university for 1 or 2 years but they had to stop because they are too poor to continue.   They learn faster and are able to follow rules well.  Those that went to university may have a bit of an attitude problem and are a bit arrogant towards the our elderly at home.  

– They are more expensive to hire, their starting pay is $420, Indonesian maid only cost $380.

– They are not willing to learn our local language, if they don’t speak English well, this will be a problem for you, not like the Indonesian maid, they usually can master our local language in 6 to 12 months.

– They are not willing to accept a no off day contract, even if they did at the beginning. They will ask for time off to go to church after 6 months of service (if you are not a Christian yourself to bring her to church weekly).   Indonesia do not bring you such problem.

Philippines Food

– Their cooking style is not familiar to most of us as we hardly go to a Filipino restaurant for meals.  My maid has tried cooking her home town food for us on her birthday, but it is a bit of a culture shock to us.  Their food is very dry and very salty and their deserts are too sweet for us.  We have lots of Indonesia restaurant in Singapore, so we can accept Indonesian food better.
