« on: October 13, 2008, 02:56:43 pm »

i grew up with 2-3 maids in the house.. wala naman kami permanent driver mga service lang.. then sometimes meron labandera

honestly.. feeling ko di ko kaya.. with all the schedule that i have. tapos itong asawa ko... mr. senyorito.. im worried nga baka kapag pumayag ako magmigrate.. alilain ako nito...

i also grew up with 2-3 maids around kasi amdami kaming magkakaptid.

i for one have maids kasi madami din akong anak at im working pa. di ko na din kaya na pag uwi ko eh ako pa magluluto at mag aasikaso sa mga bata.

driver? i grew up na wala. kaya kong magcommute at magmaneho, flexible naman ako.

i'm a stay at home mom kaya for so many years wala na kaming katulong.  siguro almost 20 yrs na  :)  dati may taga plantsa kami who comes in every month pero nung nag retire na si hubby di ko na pinabalik pa uli si manang plantsadora. 

hindi ako magaling maglinis ng bahay kaya laging magulo bahay namin.  parang dinaanan ng bagyo lagi, labas at loob.  but i'm a good cook, kaya pamilya condensada na kami ngayon.  i also bake kaya may bragging rights na ko pagdating sa pagkain  ;D

my kids naman are all grown up na, except dun sa bunso na 9 years old lang.  my daughter knows how to cook na rin and she can run the house maski wala ako.  i took a two month vacation at sya ang naging nanay dito sa bahay habang wala ako.  the boys naman sila taga linis ng bahay, banyo, atbp.  they also know how to cook, kaya nila mabuhay ng walang maid.  marunong din sila lahat maglaba.  syempre washing machine naman. 

i think in the long run ok na rin ang walang maid kasi nga natuto mga anak ko dito sa bahay.  just recently may nag kwento sa akin na nanay, yung kanyang teenage son daw gusto mag painit ng de lata na ulam.  aba balak daw ilagay yung unopened de lata sa microwave para lutuin.  susme, buti na lang at available sya sa chat that time.  nasa abroad na kasi si nanay that time.  eh tapos yung maid nag bakasyon yata.

^wow bravo sis.. natuwa naman ako sa lata sa loob ng microwave.. when i was in grade school.. gusto ko magluto ng yema.. ayaw ako pansinin ng yaya ko.. sabi niya lagay ko lang daw un lata ng condense sa apoy.... akala ko she meant literally.. bata pa ako nun.. di ko man lang naisip na kelangan buksan ang apoy.. akala ko lutu lutuan.. i still didnt know the principle of boyle that time... tsk tsk tsk.. sumabog lang naman ang condense sa mukha ko.. buti walang peklat..

i wish i can say i can.. pero ang hirap.. kelangan maging super mom ako... kapag nagkataon siguro i allot ko ang time for the house.. lalong magrereklamo hubbie na wala na ako time sa kanya
either you hate me or love me...

I can with the following conditions:

1.Full time Stay at home mom or even may part time biz (dito sa pinas)
2.If working mom dapat nasa abroad (e.g. US, canada) wherein:

-Nasa suburbs yung house, hindi polluted so no need to clean the house everyday, declutter and basic cleaning will suffice.
 
-Dishwasher, washing/drying  machines readily available (ok to use cause electricity charges are very low)

-Effective traffic system - less time spent on the road means more time to spend at home

-No work on saturdays and sundays means more time to spend on household chores / errands

-People don't expect you to work beyond 8 hours - which means more time to relax and even with houshold chores you wont feel burnt out

-Husbands DO help around, they don't expect the wife to do everything... they really help around..

-Driving around is really not difficult abroad they have wide roads, very organize street system, street names and signs are easily spoted and readable, no super hard headed bus and jeepney drivers who think they own the streets, drivers are discipline and courteous and most of all, ample FREE parking slots...

there..... =)

ako, noon ok lang since i'm the only child and kaya na namin ni dady alagaan ang isat isa and asikasuhin ang bahay.. may labandera/plantsadora na lang na pumupunta every week..

pero now, hndi ko na kayang wala.. iisa pa lang junakis ko pero she could really be a handful.. myat mya may natatapon and walang humpay na pagkakalat ng toys nya.. before, i'm a working mom, pagakagaling sa office, typical na wife and momy na magluluto pa and everything pagdating since medyo palpak pagdating sa cooking yung maid namin kaya request ni hubby talaga na ako na sana magluto if kaya ko and di ako pagod.. kaya kahit pagod ako non, since naiisip ko yung request ni hubby, me na nagluluto. dakila..

now buti na lang i stopped working na so plenty of time to cook na.. hehe.. at times na nag-off maid namin for a couple of days (usually weekends), grabe, sumasakit ulo ko sa dami ng kalat and liligpitin.. kaya pagbalik ng maid tambak ang gawain nya..

driver, wala talaga.. kaya ko naman magcommute and magdrive kaya i have no problem with no driver.. maid lang talaga..hehe..

p.s.  ay aside from being a full time nanay, maid, alipin, sex slave eh driver din pala ako.  pag may mga lakad yung mga anak ko na alanganing oras at kailangan ihatid o sunduin, ako rin yun.  syempre pag kailangan mamalengke o mag grocery drive ko din sarili ko sa market  ;D

ako alam kong hindi ko kaya, but i never really exerted effort din kasi. i went abroad to work but came back home after 3 weeks. one of the major things that made me come back home - it was my turn to clean the bathroom. that's when i realized that the money wasn't worth it. on top of missing my family so much, ako pa gagawa ng chores. thanks but no thanks.

i grew up with maids also. the most that we had in the house as 7 when we were all still studying. pero kasi yung iba mga scholars ng mom ko. they  work for us doing all sorts of things in exchange for education.

before i got married, we had 2-3 at a time at my parents' house. plus 1 boy who took care of the dogs. now it's just my 2 sisters at my parents' house (my parents stay in the province) and they still have 2 maids and 1 boy. walang pinagbago compared nung kaming 5 siblings don pa nakatira.

wala akong alam na housework, except siguro hugas ng plato, which my mom says i don't do so well. di din ako marunong magwalis ng maayos. nakakahiya. but this has been an issue for us ever since. my mom always believed na we should at least know how to do chores. my dad naman always believed na kaya nga may househelp para we don't have to do anything. oh well.

when i was still studying, i had a driver. well, share kaming 5 siblings sa 1 driver and 1 car. discipline daw said our dad para we all learn to coordinate and share. puro away lang nangyari so isa isa kaming natutong mag-drive.

now i can go wherever i want on my own and don't need a driver anymore.

nasanay ako na maraming househelp. laking probinsya kase ako. but kahit na may katulong,  marunong pa rin ako sa gawaing bahay like luto, linis, laba and plantsa.
maybe kahit 1 katulong, ok lang pero pag totally wala, parang di ko kaya siguro. maybe if no kid, kaya siguro.

We only have one househelp... all around cia and i don't think kakayanin namin ni hubby ang walang maid due to our busy schedules... Sobrang fast phase kami masyado... 
Before, we have none but sobrang hassle and gastos!  Especially during meal time, most of the time lagi sa labas kami kumakain and we'd spend at least P500 - 1K for 1 meal (usually dinner).  Whew! Dagdag mo pa laundry weekly around P300 min/week (di pa kasama comforter/kumot dun ha!)  Naisip namin, mas mainam kung may maid kami because aside from may tatao sa bahay palagi, may mauutusan pa kami to do other errands and most of all, may magluluto ng kakainin namin...
True enough, mas malaki nga ang natitipid namin now (though sometimes pasaway nga lang si inday!  ;D

Yes kaya ko, basta ba ako lang ang aasikasuhin ko. Pero dun sa main house sa parents ko, ayaw ko na wala silang househelp. I don't want to see my mom doing ANY chores. Tapos yung dad ko spoiled pa (puro kasi girls in the family) so di rin maaasahan yun to help out. ;D

I work 3 days a week, have 2 children (4 y.o. and 6 mos old). We don't have an au pair. Ayokong kumuha kasi natatakot ako kapag hindi ko kilala ang tumira sa amin. When I am at work, the children goes to the day-care.

There is this girl who comes and do the general cleaning once a week (when I am at home)
My husband is liberated so he does the ironing sometimes and taking care of the babies. We share household chores.
There are these electrical appliances that makes our life easier (vaccuum, dishwasher..)
Kung gusto mong lumabas, drive mo ang sarili mo or take the public transportation, or hitch a ride with a friend.

It's a busy life and it took a lot of adjustments but I am managing it. Basta, my comfort zone is still the philippines.
Life is what you make it. Strive to be happy.

i also grew up with 2-3 maids around. plus a family driver intermittently.. now we have 3 househelps plus the driver. by the way i live with my parents. and just recently, when my sis gave birth, she and my bro-in-law "abandoned" their condo at the fort and are going to be living with us for the time being. wala kasi silang kasama sa condo, walang magbabantay ng baby. ayan kaya we really need a lot of househelp. tapos we have 7 dogs pa.. dun pa lang, kelangan na ng katulong. sa pagwo-walk 2x a day.. sa pagpapaligo.. sa pagpapakain.. sa pagsusuklay.. etc, etc.

siguro kung ako lang mag-isa kaya ko nang walang houshelp.. madali lang naman matuto magluto.. marunong naman ako maglaba, magplantsa.. marunong din ako magdrive so kahit walang driver oks lang din.  ;)

Feeling ko kaya ko walang maid/helper kung wala akong anak. But now that I have a child, magiging dalawa na sila, helpers are a necessity!

Like almost everyone, I grew up with a maid doing the housework.  When my husband and I got married, we didn't get a maid so we could learn.  I must admit my husband is better at doing chores though.  Now that we have 2 babies, we have 2 yayas to take care of them since both of us work.
