As I've said elsewhere on this forum, I got used to having a part time amah (maid) whilst we lived in Hong Kong and tried to do without help once we got to Australia, but then, when I was sick several years ago we decided that we needed to get help in again, so I now have a lady that comes in for two hours a week and that pretty well keeps everything under control.  I simply couldn't work in the business (10 - 12 hours per day M-F and 5 hours on Sat) without the help.  I don't regret it and certainly don't consider it an extravagance.

When we both worked full time, we had a cleaner once per week. Is was great, but once a month is good and we can afford that.

Uni, dont forget we are all having a catch up in bali, LOL ;D

well I will be in the kitchen helping the maid cook nasi goreng, and then when we've all eaten I'll be next to the pool watching the pool boy (so make sure he's worth looking at!)

I like the idea that they specify that you must employ 2 x Indonesians as it helps to keep locals employed. When we stayed in a hotel recently, there was an Australian girl working in the hotel and she looked like a square in a round hole. Good on her for broadening her horizons but I like to talk to the locals when I'm there IYKWIM.
