My 8th Househelp, Perl

There was Arlene, Ate Minda, Marissa, Rochelle, Sheryl, Kathy, Jelyn and now Perlita.

Perlita, or Perl for short is so far my 8th househelp in just a year. I got her through our neighbor’s housemaid. They are actually related. Perl is a Native Filipino or much known as Aeta, but a modern one. She dresses up like us. She speaks Tagalog fluently and she was able to study a year in College of Nursing, a scholar of the Botolan’s Mayor.

Too early to tell, but I feel that she’s the one I am looking for. She’s short but proactive. She’s dark but projects a beauty within. She maybe indigent but brave enough to come out in the open. And most of all, Deye and bunso get along well with her already.

I had a short talk with her a while ago and she seems to be nice. I told her about my house rules and she listens carefully. I told her what I expect from her and she answers politely.

I really hope and pray that she’d be the last, at least for this year. Otherwise, it’s going to be another adjustment for us. I thought of giving up my job already but thank God I found another one just in time. Finding the best househelp is like trying out another lipozene diet pill, you don’t know how efficient and effective it is. I hope this time I found the right one!

  3. Hi Jade! Ako nga pikit mata na lang kasi mahirap talaga makahanap ng hinahanap natin, kaso mo sila mismo na ang di bumabalik or worst eh may problema talaga.
