My new helper, Wina

Posted by Dawn at Friday, December 09, 2011

Having a very good helper previously made it more difficult to accept a new one as we all tend to compare and I have to say, the new one would have huge shoes to fill as she takes over where Vicky left off.

Wina was recommended to me by my agent as she has experience in Singapore, a very good cook and can speak Chinese and Hokkien. Therefore, we accepted her as we needed someone who was familiar with the workload and with the environment. Also we didnt want to deal with language barrier as she needs to be able to communicate with the kids and others.

So far she has been doing a good job. She is much cleaner than my previous helper and in terms of cooking, she knows more cuisine as well. Here's what she has cooked so far for us..

And for weekends or public holidays, she has cooked this for us for our breakfast.
She also cooks very nice chicken rice (with homemade chilli sauce) and mee siam (all from scratch..no premix!), which taste better than what I eat outside
Even during Danielle's celebration where we had BBQ, she made curry vegetables, chicken satay and otah which tasted so good..

When I tell my friends what a great cook and helper I have now, they commented how lucky I was in having good helpers one after another..but all I can say is that its God's grace and provision for us as we have been praying for a good helper and one that I can trust to leave my children alone with her. Thank God, she has been very diligent and making effort to forge good relationships with my children, being very patient and understanding as initially it wasn't easy especially when they were quite close to my previous helper, Vicky.

Anyway, I continue to pray that she will enjoy staying with us, taking good care of the household as well as teaching the children right values whenever she spends time with them. More importantly, I pray she will come to know the Lord and experience His love and goodness.

Thanks Wina for being a part of our family..
