My wife (Filipina) is pregnant and now I am really worried that she will murder my child using gecko urine in some fiendish cult ritual.
I love geckos and I wish we had one in our flat, anyone got any to spare? Mind you my mother-in-law is petrified of them and still managed to have 6 kids.
Back to the original question - as others have said, give her her own firdge or cupboard. And why not let her eat with you?
And what is wrong with paying maids for their holidays, most people get paid holidays.
