Too bad our currency has weakened so much. We did offer her a substantial raise but she had her eye on the wages in countries with stronger currencies. Yep we did factor in the fact that she was a good worker already familiar with our household. Still, it wouldn't have been viable to match what she wanted.
Take picture with my kakak
Last night, she said she should have made the decision to stay instead. Oh well, way too late to change course. Hopefully things work out for her.
I'm feeling sad at losing her companionship. Towards the end of our Melaka trip I started to panic at having to go solo as my new maid was only expected in another week or two. But luckily that was speeded up and she should arrive in another 2 days.
Will see how things work out. *fingers and toes all crossed*
