I used to have a kaypoh (busybody) Indonesian maid. I didn't ask her to monitor or spy on my wards, but she would always tell me what was happening in the house.
One day while I was having my late dinner, she came to sit beside me. She started telling me about the kids. Who did what, who and who quarrelled, who ate titbits in the bedroom.....
Then in a whisper, she asked if I had noticed Miao, a 19-year old girl from Beijing, didn't wash her underwear. Huh!? Seeing that I stopped eating with my chopsticks raised in mid air, she gleefully moved her chair closer to me.
"I notice that she seldom wash her underwear! You don't see her drying her underwear."
What!! Miao goes around not wearing her underwear!? How can!?
In my house, I have a written rule that every one has to wash their own underwear. It's one's personal item, and they cannot wash underwear in the washing machine, together with other clothings. So after their baths, they have to wash their underwear and dry them on the racks provided in their bedrooms.
Seeing the incredulous look on my face, my maid explained further,"I have been spying on her for the past two weeks. And guess what I found!? She wears her panty for 2 days, then turns it inside out and wear for another 2 days. Then on the 5th day, she washes it! So you only see her panty drying on the rack once a week."
ewwww....... turns her panty inside out and wear again!?
"Some more! Some more! Her bra hor. Wash once a fortnight only. You see her bra, all black black. "
I dropped my chopsticks and my jaws!!! sigh ............
