I remember last time got one time when we all Malaysian so remonstration about having Indonesian here in Malaysia as our worker. At that time, I also agreed with the suggestion. Reason? This Indonesian brings too much social problems, criminal problems, and so on so forth.
But, now only I realize how dependant me and my family to this Indonesian. As I told you in my very previous entry, I’m now hiring an Indonesian to take care of my daughter, Aimee. Last week, my MIL told me that she’s now pregnant for almost 2 months. Could you imagine what was in my mind when I heard the news?
Who will take care my baby when she has to go back to deliver her baby?
To tell you the truth, it’s not easy to find people who want to taking care a baby, who have the patience to serve their crankiness, their naughtiness and their moodiness. I’m so grateful this girl has all the patience that we need. And now, I have to find another person to take her place which I don’t know where to find.
Our Malaysian? I don’t think there is any!
This morning also I keep thinking on what will happen if we chase all these Indonesians back to their country? Who will clean our office toilet? Who will do the gardening job? Who will do all the house chores (for those who hiring a maid)? And who will do all those unwieldy job with low pay?
Malaysian now is getting better in terms of our education. When almost everybody holds diploma, degree and PHD, do you think our Malaysian interested in all that? No right? Even an SPM holder also feel they rather work in a factory or as a clerk or working in other places that can offer them higher paying with easier job.
So, could you see how important an Indonesian worker to us Malaysian? I admit most of them always create problems. But, do we heed to those who really came here for working and serious in earning money for their beloved family? Pity to this group right?
P/s: Still thinking and worry about who will take her place to baby-sit Aimee :(
