    • Maternity Leave 84 Days

      Malaysia moms to be may have 84 days of maternity leave. Currently it is 60 days. Let’s hope this goes through. Mothers should have more maternity leave to breastfeed their baby.

      Oh well, I will not be enjoying this as I have already made up my mind, just to have 2 children.

    1. “that women in the civil service” woh.. not us normal ‘tah kung jai’.. :shoot

    2. sighh…now how i wish they got this approved 2 months before i gave birth

    3. Still under discussion ler…but dont think private sector will follow ler…especially my sitingy China man boss.. 🙁

    4. hmm, weird, i left a comment this afternoon but no show now. Anyway, i was saying, Canada has the best maternity leave plan: ONE year!

      Here in US, if you have vaginal delivery, it’s only 6-wks paid leave. For c-sect, 8-wks. The govt will pay 60% of your mthly salary. Check/Cheque will be send bi-weekly. In California, a bit better, they have the Family Leave Plan. Can extend the maternity leave for another 6-weeks. 3-not-long-enough-month in total..but better than nothing la. *sigh* Some companies will pay the other 40%, but if working in kiam sap company (like mine), we just get teeny weeny amount in the pay check. *double sigh*

      Zara’s mama: Is it? I thought also for private sector, maybe govt will request private sector to follow the same. Keep your finger cross.

      Jazzmint: Oh well, we miss the boat. Maybe you can consider having a 3rd kid.

      Jess: Newspaper say it will announce within a months time. Let’s wait.
