Michelle Chong does a spot on Philippino accent. Some Singaporeans really treat their maids terribly. Aren’t they employees just like any of us working in an office, but somehow they get treated a whole lot worse – dehumanized. Anyway I think the whole idea of live in maids is a bad concept as it is prone to abuse, unless the employer is naturally compassionate. I see couples taking their maid out on a Sunday and the maid pushes their kid in a pram or has to wait around while they shop or frolick about, completely ignoring their child – it’s really awful. Anyway this is what it is like in our society.
Right on! I have seen far worse sights than maid taking care of the brat while parents busy themselves with anything-but-their-child. Totally disgusting! Pathetic middle class mentality. *sigh*
sometimes i think some people in Singapore have kids as a must have accessory…it’s like one of the things to tick of the list…they just want it all and are not thinking of the child’s needs.
Once a upon a time, there were the trophy wives. Now its the trophy kids.
