If it's family and they stay I have seen the boarder doesn't just eat and sleep. They do get involved in house work though it's a very grey area that I would prefer to let the Filipino relatives manage that giving my 2 cents and upsetting their social order

Been there, seen that, like a few relatives kids who stayed as they were going to SLU..and evenings after work they do.help wash dishes, cook, clean etc.
Thats the dilemma and fine line. Best for foreigner to stay out of those things.

And THERE lies the answer!....I'll let my Wife "manage" it and keep me out of it, But as long as things are getting done and we still have some privacy, etc.....and still have our stuff and money! Long as wife understands money and budgets by then, what could possibly go wrong?! (cough, cough)

We have an excellent maid and we pay her P2500. We feed her and provide toiletries. She attends mass with us and goes shopping with us. She is honest, honorable, and reliable. We treat her like a member of the family and her response is to be respectful. I understand this is not everyone's experience. We are grateful.

Is your maid doing some work around the house for seven days per week?
If so, even at P100/day she would get P3000 per month, at P150/day she would get P4500 per month.
