Does anyone of you like doing housework? For me I just hate it. I remember reading on the BBC news about women who exercise by doing housework can reduce the risk of breast cancer. I wonder how true that is. I guess is a form of physical exercise, and exercise is always good for us.
For years, in Malaysia, I had a maid to pick up after me. I didn’t even need to make my bed. I used to wake up in the morning, shower, get dress and I’d be out to work, and when I’d come home my apartment will be spotless, clothes ironed, bed made and sometimes my maid, Siti, even made soup for me in the slow cookers. I guess I was spoiled in many ways. Since moving here, I have to do everything myself. I remember once when I called home the first thing my mom asked me was, you know how to make your bed. Years ago all bed sheets come in a flat sheet and not those fitted kind like now, so I’ve always had problem putting it on and she knew that.
I've learned a lot since coming here to the US. No maid for me and I have to do everything myself. I think I am pretty good now. I clean and iron the best I can but I am not as good as Carlos. When he cleans he really cleans. He does it from top to bottom on his hand and knees. I wish he’d do that more often.
Sometimes I do wish I have a maid here, mainly to clean up after my cooking and baking mess. Too bad we can't afford it because maids are expensive here. You have to be really rich to afford one. Now I have to get back to my kitchen to clean after making my Baked Shell Pasta.
