408. My Weekly Helper

This lady is my helper who comes to clean my house once a week. She does the major cleaning of course he he... like cleaning my upstair and downstair toilets, cleaning and mopping my kitchen floors, clean my wall tiles, my big mirrors on the wall, my ovens, refrigerators and so on and on...

She's a good lady, trustful and obedient. She is an Iban (race) and lives at Kpg. Lusut, a five minutes walk to my house.

She has been working for me for almost 3 years. Sometimes when she comes she will bring something like chillies, bamboo shoots or pumpkins which she has planted. And most times when she leaves I will give her something to bring home either for her kitchen or for her young daughter.

So I was particularly pleased when she came last Thursday to do cleaning after my trip to Kuching. My kitchen certainly need another pair of hands to do cleaning then.

When I took the above picture of hers, she asked me what am I going to do with this picture? Is it to show to my friends she asked. I told her I am going to write a little about her and put her picture in my blog.

She smiled.

I really appreciate her help with the cleaning in my house.

Back in Miri in the 80's we used to have a helper, a distant relative of my mom, she was around during the birth of my younger brother(twins), I remembered that she was a small sized young lady then and she was so good with all the housekeeping work. Tubuhnya kecik tapi bila nya nyesah lampin berbesen jak ..as the twins were born in December which was the landas season then, you can just imagine the loads of washing that she had to do...luckily gas free masa di kem...so dapur kamek org masa ya nang bergantung dengan kain lampin my brothers..

We are still in contact with each other now but people like her is hard to find nowadays....

Mak isah can imagine that Nur. It's true, nowadays Mak isah noticed it is hard to find a good helper for home.

Unless one is lucky to find a good one.

It is good that you are still in contact with each other.
