Hi Tanny thanks for for sharing..could you tell me more bout Mei Cheh's cooking and hygiene? thanks alot HI Cheesetart, Sorry for the late reply. Mei Cheh is clean, no issues on that, bathes and brushes her teeth, washes her hair. The only thing I noticed was the cooking smell of her hands....at the moment, cannot quite remember what smell but maybe it was all the ginger she was cooking...you know when people do alot of cooking, they have that smell about their hands? But basically none of us had any issues with her hygiene. (Actually I noticed cos she was helping me massage my breasts for milk expression). Cooking-wise ok, she's flexible too, wasn't a drill sargeant in forcing me to eat stuff but did advise alot and try to gradually intro me to ginger and DOM and etc...adding more and more each time so I get used to it. She has got some fantastic dishes like her fried chicken and she takes great pride in presentation of food too - she used to own a coffee shop and cooked the 'tai chow' dishes there.... Hope this helps! Hi Tanny wow..that's great to hear and looking forward to trying out her dishes..thanks alot for your infor take care hi cheesetart, just wondering did you talked to mei cheh? my wife just contacted her and she is quite nice. and i think my wife have booked her. anyone have tried her? Hi Key Mei Cheh is with me now for my confinement. Rest assured, she's good. Like described by Tanny and Snowgirl, she's easy to communicate with, not calculative, helpful, gentle and caring towards baby, very supportive on breastfeeding and knowlegable too. Hope your wife will have a great confinement with her as well. take care Great share on the info. My hubby is worried about hiring the right "confinement-month lady" Do we really need to pay upfront first? I mean the whole basic pay. Can't it be done like pay half first and then final half at then end of the month? (just wondering) Worried about budget here.
