But as I've said earlier, it was difficult on the first week only. I'm still the forgetful me... but I've trained Maya to take responsibility of her own things. I make it clear to Maya that I'm just the porter and the driver though of course I'd quietly check her things. As the baby in the family, and grew up having maids at her command, Maya takes 2-3 weeks to adjust herself. By the third week, when asked " how do you feel about not having a maid in the house" she answered, "ok, best gak, nobody moves my things and mixes them with Azizi's." That, for me, is one great success.
In the next posting, I'll share my tricks on the route to independence, freedom from living with a maid.
