As I am preparing my blog entry, our former Cambodian maid is already half way flying from Kuala Lumpur to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. When I booked her flight ticket, I was tempted to intentionally-planning-to-screw-up her travel itinerary – perhaps entering the wrong passport or misspelled one of her name etc.
Well, whatever she has done to all of us, it is not me who should be punishing her, as whatever I planned to do, God would probably do likewise on me.
When I was clicking the meal option for our Cambodian helper, knowing how much she can eat as well as how much she likes to eat, I was thinking not to give her any food. But, I did not. I ordered her Nasi Goreng Special, at least something for her to remember about Malaysia, maybe not her employer.
The agency asked us whether we were planning to reduce her salary as she has broke so many things while with us – she admitted 3 times to the medical centre near-by (disturbing Jackie, then the dog jumped on her, maid cut her toe. Bad hygiene, caused growth and infection, resulted minor surgery was required etc.) Our microwave, oven, stove, vacuum, lights, gates etc…. Probably can deduct one of two months of salary. But, we did not.
In Mark 12:17,
Then Jesus said to them, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” And they were amazed at him.
I always remember this saying, “What comes around, goes around.”
Well, enough of ranting about our former maid. Let’s move on.
