Santai.

Selama jadi ibu rumah tangga, sejak tahun 1999 aku sudah beberapa kali berganti asisten rumah tangga.

Sapu’ah

Dewi, lasted fot 3 years

Rubi

Iin, a happy girl from Rangkasbitung lasted 2 months and had to quit because her parents wanted her to become a TKW 

This girl from Lampung, I forgot her name she lasted only a month but thankgod, later on I found out she had mental issue *horror*

A chubby woman, a good cook, also lasted for a month. This one had manner and slightly mental issue, and expected to get paid more *rollingeyes*

Mpok Giyem

Mbak Sopi ( she lasts 14 yrs until today, taking care my son and the X )

Bibik, who was given by my masseuse lady but only lasted few weeks because she couldn’t stand mbak Sopi, a typical case when you have a senior maid )

Sohiroh lasted for 5 yrs until she got married, she is the niece of Mbak Sopi

Tuti lasted 3 years until she got married, a niece of mbak Sopi

Nadia, lasts until today, also a niece of mbak Sopi, Tuti’s younger sister.
This pretty girl, I also forgot her name, worked only a month before Hari Raya because she only needed the money for Lebaran.

And Uyung, she has been working for me for 13-14 months. She will be leaving for good in 9 days. She said she’s gonna work in a factory.

Too bad. 

I like her. We like her. She’s good, and can make a fantastic sambal.

But hey. Afterall, a maid is just a maid, especially the young ones. What makes Mbak Sopi lasts for years not just because  she’s the most mature one, her husband also work with her as a driver.

Sebagai seorang nyonya rumah, saya pada dasarnya ngga bawel. Apalagi sekarang. Gak perlu masak tiap hari, kecuali saat orang tua lagi di rumah. 

Dari dulu peraturan selalu sama, mereka harus bangun pagi pagi, sebelum azan subuh, atau menjelang azan subuh. Clean the house. Sapu, pel, lap lap, cuci-cuci.

Siang menjelang sore, setrika. Dan rapikan lemari, karena terkadang…eh bahkan sering, suka tidak rapi saat aku menarik baju keluar untuk dipakai.

That’s it. Gak terlalu banyak diurusin. Terkadang aku turun tangan sendiri, untuk merapikan rumah dan masak.

But I will always need a maid. Bukan karena manja atau malas. Lebih ke arah ada yang jaga rumah. 

Buat bantu-bantu, ya sudah tentu. Aku menyukai kerapihan. I can not think, jika rumah ada sedikit saja yang berantakan. Tentu saja, bisa kukerjakan sendiri. Tapi…. nggak lah. Aku juga butuh momen bersantai, bukan?
