Actually I dont know know what to write today. However, I am quite free at this moment, so I thought I should jot down something..something that bothering me lately..about my maid. She is leaving for Bandung this saturday morning for a two-month break. It bothers me a lot because all this while I have been " pampered" by her service for the past 8 years! Now she is going back for a cuti after 3 years in service :-D She deserved that.
Let me just share with you about my maid, her name is Engkar which literally means "disobedient". However, my father has changed her name to Taat which means the opposite of Engkar! She has been very good with me and helped me a lot in taking care of all the household chores.Alhamdulillah..Whatever is less I consider it as a human being and always try to look at the bigger side of her contributions in my family. I remind her too to forgive me for any shortcomings when dealing with her..and always be thankful to Allah for what she has now. Today we are baking Famous mama's cookies ( my hubby gave the name of the cookies) for the last time before she leaves..
Well, since she will be gone for two months, I have to familiarize myself with the equipments in the house from wet kitchen to dry kitchen, from living room to dining room, from children's rooms to master bedroom and most importantly utilitiy room! My husband has told me that most probably he would not be hear any blender's sound, food processor's sound and cake mixer's sound in this two months period..Ouch! Ha! ha! most likely.. What I dont like most is ironing clothes! I am trying to get a part timer to help on that..
I am attaching here a picture of me & kids together with Engkar when we went to Sungai Petani, Kedah last year...
To Engkar, Bon Voyage and enjoy your holiday with your loved ones!
