Most of the Malaysian maids work in the nearest neighbouring country Singapore because of the proximity and similar culture. Basically Malaysian maids are no doubt hard working and stick to their jobs for a longer duration. Due to this they are preferred by the employers especially the locals who wish to hire domestic help for a longer period. The Malaysian maids in Singapore hold a better edge in this respect because they are much more familiar with the local culture and living style, they are keen learners and are very fast workers. Since the Malaysian maids hail from the neighbouring country language does not pose a major problem for them while interacting with the local population.
