Maid from hell

I’m sure most of you have been seeing this viral video being circulated online, especially in Facebook about an Indonesian maid abusing a baby. Tossing and throwing it around like a ragdoll. God bless the baby and I hope he/she would grow up fine.

As a mother myself, I cannot imagine why anyone would want to cause harm to a baby. Babies are so dependent on us adults so shouldn’t all the more we be providing assurance, love and protection instead of hurting it? No matter how upset the maid was with the employee (if she ever were), she should have never taken it out on the poor child who is innocent.

I dared not view the video because it’s just too mortifying and saddening. I could stomach the baby yoga video but not this. Because I read that that the baby featured in the baby yoga video is now a healthy toddler… so I guess she turned out fine somehow, despite all the flipping and turning like a little gymnast doll.

Anyway, let this be a warning to all mothers out there with maids. Never for once, take your maid’s presence for granted. No matter, how sweet & good-natured she appears to be, you never really know what goes on in her mind. Just be on your guard and also treat her with respect so that hopefully, she would return that respect to you and your family.

Halloween Costumes 2011

Halloween is exactly a week away and I’m all hyped up! Since a little girl, I’ve always anticipated this time of the year. I guess I’ve grown up watching too much of Channel 5 & westernized kids show such as “Are you afraid of the dark” and “Sesame Street”.

Halloween, which falls on 31st October, is not so much celebrated by the local kids in Singapore. I think only those expats hold private parties in their lush mansions down district 10.

So I grew up lacking the dressing up and Halloween culture in my childhood. This made me determined to relive the ‘lost childhood’ in my teen years. But alas, none of my friends were into this whole dress up idea. It was not until 3 years ago that I finally got to attend my VERY FIRST HALLOWEEN party at Zouk. It’s pathetic I know. And now that I’m nearing the big 30 in a couple of years… I don’t know if the tradition should go on.
