Second, I'd like to point out that there are a lot of employers who are very good to their household help, who treat them like family and who have a wonderful relationship with their helpers. Likewise there are also housemaids who are dishonest, who steal and lie, who run away, or cause other kinds of trouble. And vice versa. People have different experiences and those experiences help form their opinions. Not all employers are like Sally's maam and not all housemaids are like Sally. The blog does not attempt to make generalisations about housemaids and their employers, but hopefully, attempts to give the reader another point of view, another perspective, another voice. At the end of the day, it is a fictional blog and should be read with that in mind.
Edited to add- I recently had a change of circumstances which resulted in my family having to leave Dubai. I chose to continue writing the blog even though I am no longer based in Dubai. I feel that if Dubaisally has been an inspiration to even a handful of people, that's a handful more than what I started out with. If she has opened the eyes of even two or three people about the life of an OFW, that's two or three people more than what I started out with. And that is what keeps me going when I write the blog.
