A 24-year-old Indian domestic worker in Singapore was fired after being accused of eating Milo powder, stealing coins and wearing her employer’s clothes and jewelry in selfies she took.
The 28-year-old Singaporean employer, a lawyer, told the Lianhe Wanbao (Singapore) about how she and her family had a difficult time with their domestic worker between March and July this year.
The family was shocked when they discovered their can of Milo – a chocolate and malt powder – was only half full after one day, prompting them to go through home security camera footage where they saw the worker eating scoops of the beverage powder.
Since it was a trivial matter, the family asked the woman not to do it again.
By the end of May, the employer’s younger brother suspected the worker had taken some coins from his wallet. And their father’s coin collection became lighter. They confronted the worker, who eventually admitted to stealing the coins.
The family decided to give her one last chance, but on July 28 she was caught dating a foreign man. They also discovered the worker had a habit of sneaking into their locked bedrooms, where she tried on their clothes and accessories and posed for selfies, which she sent to her boyfriend.
