Do You Do Household Chores?

Posted by : foongpc | Monday, August 24, 2009 | Published in

There are two types of people in this world.

The first type do household chores. The second type don't.

So which type are you?

Well, not sure if I am supposed to be proud or not, but I belong to the first type. Now isn't that a surprise to most of you since men usually don't do household chores? Or at least that's what I've been led to believe. Real men don't do chores, do they? In fact, most men find that chores are, well, a chore!

But you know what? I think ladies are not that much different. I think they find household chores boring! No? Oh, come on, admit it, ladies! Otherwise, why would you bother to pressure your partner or your other half to share all the housework?

Now those of you who are fortunate enough not to do any household chores must be laughing at me. Well, laugh all you want! It's not that I can't afford a maid or a servant to do all those chores. I choose not to employ them.

Now did I hear some sniggers?

OK, OK. I admit. I can't afford to employ them to clean my house. But that's not the main reason why I don't employ maids or servants. The major reason is that I don't think they can do the job as good as me! Call me fussy or whatever! But if you can't satisfy me, then I don't feel like paying you! Oh, this doesn't sound right, does it?

Ok, let me just rephrase that! What I'm trying to say is, if you can't clean the house the way I want it to be cleaned, then I don't feel it is worth my money paying you to do the job!

Might as well I clean it myself, right?

The last time I got an Indian lady to scrub my toilet, she broke a few of my toilet tiles! Goodness, was she Superwoman in disguise or what!

And I wouldn't dream of getting an Indonesian maid! My sister's first Indonesian maid did not know how to hold the broom and turn the tap and my sister had to teach her! Can you believe it?

Her second maid almost committed suicide in her house and that was a major scare for her!

Her third one irritated her so much that she finally decided to live without a maid! So no Indonesian maid for me, thank you!

But doing all these chores myself are tiring and awfully time consuming! And for those of you who have never done any household chores before and are living like princes or princesses, let me give you the low down on the types of household chores that exist in my part of the world.

1. sweep floor
2. mop floor
3. wipe windows
4. wipe ceiling fans
5. wash bathroom
6. wash clothes
7. dry clothes
8. iron clothes
9. wash dishes
10. dust tables and chairs and shelves

There may be other chores, but these are the main ones. Of all these chores, I hate washing the bathroom the most! Yet, in my house, I am known as the "Toilet Cleaner". Yes, that means I am solely responsible for making sure the toilets in my house are always clean and spotless.

That's a tough job as I have three toilets in my house! I am seriously considering locking up one of the toilets! Less work for me, haha!

I don't mind washing clothes because all you need to do is just dump the whole lot into the washing machine, right? Wrong! To me, I need to scrub that collar part of a shirt because somehow the washing machine can't do the job of removing sweat stains from the collars! I really think they should come out with more intelligent washing machines. But luckily, washing clothes is not part of my job. It's my brother's. Haha!

Washing clothes is one thing, but I really think ironing clothes is worse. It has to be one of the most tiring and irritating chores! I simply hate to iron clothes! I think I will just wear wrinkle free shirts and T shirts from now on!



I used to mop the floor every 2-3 days. Now you'll be lucky to find me mop the floor once a week. No wonder my mom keeps complaining nowadays! Maybe I should get that robot to help me clean the floor. You know, that cute round machine that cleans your floor as it runs around on its own? Wonder how effective is that robot?



But you know what? Even though I detest household chores, I have a strange liking to one chore. Want to know which one? Call me insane or whatever, but I love washing the dishes! Yes, you read that right! Don't ask me to cook, but wash the dishes? Give it to me, baby!

I really don't know why but I like to see the bowls and plates squeaky clean. Maybe I am abnormal, but it's been like this since I was small. Washing the dishes makes me happy.



But wait. That does not mean not washing the dishes will make me unhappy. That's an entirely different thing altogether. To clear this up, let me just say that I prefer not having to wash the dishes, but if I have to, it's perfectly fine!

So anyone want to invite me to your house and cook a nice meal for me? In return I will wash the dishes for you! Sounds like a good deal, no?

    I clean my house on a weekly basis. I sweep, mop and wipe the tables and kitchen counter. Of course, I do the dishes whenever I eat at home. It's my home. I have to keep it clean. Housework can be a good exercise for the body.

    I know you don't sweep or mop coz someone else does it right? ;)

    honestly i hate it but i have no choice, i have to learn how to be independent and how to deal with the daily house chores all by myself^^

  10. foongpc said...

    mei teng, actually I do mop the floor! But I do the top floor while my brother does the lower floor.

    Well, for the locked toilet, at least I don't have to clean it regularly. Maybe once in a few months, or 3 times a year? LOL!

    August 24, 2009 at 10:40 AM

    cashmere, good for you! I hate ironing clothes!!

    August 24, 2009 at 10:40 AM
  12. foongpc said...

    betchai, gender equality in the US, yes? In Malaysia, I think household chores are still more of a woman's domain. But things are slowly changing : )

    August 24, 2009 at 10:42 AM
  13. foongpc said...

    TH, how come? Maybe you have too much rubbish! Throw them out! : )

    August 24, 2009 at 10:43 AM
  14. foongpc said...

    ai shiang, poor you! Do all the household chores all by yourself? That's tough! Time to get a maid? ; )

    August 24, 2009 at 10:44 AM
  15. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, staying alone is no excuse for doing household chores! You can employ a servant or maid. Unless you can't afford it lah : )

    August 24, 2009 at 10:45 AM
  16. foongpc said...

    borneo falcon, now you do less chores? Why? Because your wife does most of them? Lucky you!! : )

    August 24, 2009 at 10:46 AM
  17. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, well this is how it goes. You learn to be independent and do all the household chores. Then when your earning power is higher and you are already independent, you either look for a wife or a maid to do all the household chores! Hahaha! *just kidding*

  18. molly said...

    I don't like house chores and I don't like a maid around my house too. So I am doing house chore out of no choice. I prefer gardening :)

    August 24, 2009 at 10:58 AM
  19. HappySurfer said...

    Foong, I could be writing this post myself! What I mean is that how you feel about employing a maid and not minding washing dishes are akin to my own sentiments. I even enjoy washing pots and pans as well.

    But this I do not subscribe to:
    But you know what? I think ladies are not that much different. I think they find household chores boring! No? Oh, come on, admit it, ladies! Otherwise, why would you bother to pressure your partner or your other half to share all the housework?

    In the first place, he being a "partner" SHOULD be a partner in all aspects of a couple's life including sharing the housework without having to be pressured. Don't guys know this not doing their part is one of the factors that is causing stress to the other half? Talk about love, my foot! Oops! Just feel a bit over-reacting. haha.. But don't you agree that the burden of housework should be lessened with mutual effort?

    You, my dear Foong, would make a great other half. ;)

    Btw, I do every household chore. What I don't do is iron clothes. The dhoby does it though not always to my satisfaction but oh well, since I'd rather not do it.

    August 24, 2009 at 11:27 AM
  20. HappySurfer said...

    And oh, happy Monday, Foong. It must feel great to be rid of yet another weekend of housework. haha..
    Cheerio!

    August 24, 2009 at 11:29 AM
  21. Mei Teng said...

    I agree with Happysurfer that the other half should be responsible. That's why they call them other half! Half and half makes up one.

    August 24, 2009 at 11:36 AM
  22. foongpc said...

    molly, I guess if you don't like maids, then no choice have to do the chores! You prefer gardening? Actually I don't like gardening, but I think it can be quite relaxing and therapeutic, no?

    August 24, 2009 at 11:40 AM
  23. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, hi five on washing dishes! Didn't know there are people who like washing dishes! I thought I am the only one! Haha!

    You are definitely over-reacting over the sharing of household chores issue. Haha! Well, in Malaysia or Asia at least, most men don't do household chores so their wives tend to pressure them to do their share, especially working wives. But I think nowadays, things are changing, right?

    Oh, I make a good other half? Should I feel flattered? LOL! If I'm married, I will definitely do all the dishes and leave all the toilet cleaning to my wife! Haha!

    You hate ironing too, don't you? Hmm, maybe I should take my clothes to the dhoby too : )

    August 24, 2009 at 11:47 AM
  24. foongpc said...

    mei teng, I am sure you agree. Most women will tend to agree. I guess it's different during the olden days when men are the breadwinner and women are housewives. Nowadays, women can be the breadwinner as well, so yes, I do agree the men should share in the household chores.

    Actually, if I like to do household chores, I don't mind being the househusband. Let my wife work hard for the money, and I just sit at home, do the housework and blog all day long! Haha! : )

  25. Rad Sujanto said...

    Haha come to my house and you'll leave immediately because I have 5 bathrooms and two floors for you to clean and mop :))

    I like that first picture anyway

    August 24, 2009 at 12:03 PM
  26. ladyviral said...

    Wow! Can I worship you?! You're like part of this minority of guys that do chores!

    I do my chores, like cleaning the toilet upstairs, and my room and my mom's room on the weekend. I stay away from my brother's. I don't help him clean because he doesn't clean! So I don't help him -_-'

    Sweeping and mopping is always done by my mom, cause she does it everyday. House gets really dusty and she can't stand it hehe.

    Technically about that, clothes is washed by the machine so yea :P. No stains on collars for us, somehow guess we don't sweat that much sitting in the office.

    August 24, 2009 at 12:04 PM
  27. lina said...

    I do my chores. Like you, I think I do better than getting somebody else to do it.

    I used to grit my teeth watching Zaini helped me mop the floor, but I let him do it his way. At least he helps me, right?

    One place I won't let people help me is in the kitchen. No, you can't help me do the dishes. I hate my kitchen wet. :D

    i really appreciated it and oh my thanks for informing me about the comment ...
    i also try it by my self and the comnment system is really not working... but i fixed it already and its workinmg fine now
    thanks again

    August 24, 2009 at 2:53 PM
  31. HappySurfer said...

    I think the trend is changing as more guys are helping out at home - which is splendid, of course.

    Yes, that is a compliment and your other half will have less stress in her life and more mutual enjoyment.

    You know who comes to mind when you mentioned 'househusband'? John Lennon. He stayed at home to care for Sean when he was born while Yoko went to work. How many guys would do that, I wonder. Certainly, not our Asian or Malaysian dads. You think?

    August 24, 2009 at 2:54 PM
  32. Merryn said...

    Dat robot wont do much help lah.. it wont do a good enuf job. The nooks and corners of your house wont be clean. But still better than doing nothing at all la.. I think I need that too!

    August 24, 2009 at 3:01 PM
  33. foongpc said...

    rad, your house got 5 bathrooms? Gosh! Must be a large house you have there! may I ask who do the cleaning of the 5 bathrooms? ; )

    August 24, 2009 at 3:01 PM
  34. foongpc said...

    ladyviral, worship me? haha! Please don't! I'm not used to be worshipped! haha!

    Wah, your brother so dirty and messy one ah? So if no one cleans his room and his bathroom, then I guess it must be real dirty and stinky now!!

    So just dumped all your clothes into the washing machine? Pretty easy for you since no collar stains! Who does the drying of the clothes or do you have a drier?

    August 24, 2009 at 3:04 PM
  35. foongpc said...

    lina, good of you to train Zaini in your household chores! Just like how my mom used to train me when I was small!

    In fact, I think parents should teach their children to do household chores instead of leaving it all to the maid! Those children usually ended up lazy and spoilt!

    You know what? I also don't like my kitchen wet! And when I wash the dishes, I don't make the whole kitchen wet! : )

    August 24, 2009 at 3:07 PM
  36. foongpc said...

    lina, oh another thing! Some people may say I'm ridiculous but I actually don't like my bathroom to be wet too! I like a dry and clean bathroom! : )

    August 24, 2009 at 3:08 PM
  37. foongpc said...

    nick phillips, oh you are a cleanliness freak? Can you come clean my house then? Hehe

    August 24, 2009 at 3:09 PM
  38. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, yeah you better, but make sure your future wife likes to do housework, if not, you'll be doing most of them! Haha!

    So you've fixed the comments? Good! I'll go over in a minute! : )

    August 24, 2009 at 3:11 PM
  39. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, John Lennon did that? Good for him! I guess not many Asian men are willing to do that! : )

    August 24, 2009 at 3:13 PM
  40. foongpc said...

    merryn, haha! After saying the irobot won't do a good job, you still ended up saying you want one!

    I think it's helpful - at least we just need to clean the corners only. Not too bad, eh?

    August 24, 2009 at 3:14 PM
  41. day-dreamer said...

    Hmm... I think guys who do house chores are very manly... Haha.

    p/s: Due to certain reasons, I have privatized my blog for the time being. It would be my pleasure to still have you over sometimes, so if you are interested, please send me the address where I can send you the invitation to tt.in.reality@gmail.com. Thank you for your continuous support! :D

  45. ladyviral said...

    Hahhaa! Well, my house only got two bathrooms. He shares a bathroom with my mom. So my mom does the cleaning. As for his room? My mom changes his bedsheets for him, sweeps his room for him, and probably mop it for him too. Only probably when he clears up his stuffs does he vacuum and cleans his room. Everything else? Done by my mom.

    Oh no drier. My mom hangs them up outside in the day. And takes them in. My washing are all sun dried :).

    August 24, 2009 at 4:49 PM
  46. ladyviral said...

    We actually thought hiring a maid... but because my mom would have problem communicating with her and all the hell stories of maid we heard, we decided not to hire one to leave her alone with our mom.

    that's a deal then foong! I can cook you pretty good meals but you do the dishwashing! not that i don't like to wash dishes but I'm quite careful with my hands, I don't wet my hands right after heat or any tiring work. I use these hands to draw and make a living so I need to take care of it =)

    back home not much chores for me, we have maids but here no no...I am the maid! hahahaha too expensive to get maids here to do chores for you $$$$$$

    You should be proud Foong! Really. Not many men do house chores. I do a lot of house chores too everyday.I have been trained to do chores since I was small by my beloved late mum. :D

    August 25, 2009 at 10:10 AM
  65. Tekkaus said...

    Haha :D My wife don't have to pressure it. I will do it on my own or when she gonna do it, I will hijak the task from her. :p Well...I thing chores are...like you say chores. :p

    August 25, 2009 at 10:11 AM
  66. Tekkaus said...

    I don't think I will ever hire maids to do the chores for me. I will feel rather insecure...and you know... Nowadays a lot of story about horrific maids have surfaced. So we'd better be careful. Don't hire maids especially Indonesian maids. I know this is not a good generalization but...that's the fact!

    August 25, 2009 at 10:13 AM
  67. Tekkaus said...

    Yupe! All your chores are in my list too. I wash the the water filter system too. Hahaha :D You watch Toilet? 3 toilets? War....poor thing. LOL :p

    Ironing is really a hard task for me. It is still difficult for me to iron flawlessly just like how my mum used to iron! ;/ Guess I don't have the talent?

    Hahaha :D Maybe you should get the Robot right? There are 2 robots you know. One for vacuming and the other for mopping! :p

    Hey Foong, I'm back!

    About your topic, I do some chores as well. Some, not all. Hehe.

    And if you have time, by all means come to JB. But I won't cook for you though, maybe just bring you around haha.

    You are not alone. I am here with you...so did Michael Jackson's song goes! I did the same chores as you day in day out. You are perfectly right - if we cannot get someone to do the job to our expectation, let us do them ourselves. Getting a maid is out of question. I hate the idea because I hate to know a stranger living and knowing every inch in my house. All of us have secret corners in our houses, right? Housework is no longer gender-based. More women are beginning to earn more than the men and holding more respectable positions.

    By the way, Foong, you missed out one important "house chore" i.e blogging !!!!!(ha! ha!)

    You are most welcome to come to my house and wash the dishes anytime. Especially after one of my baking sessions....and yes, you get to taste my baked goods too!

    ~The Foong who bakes a lot but hates cleaning up after that~

    Hey, about the last paragraph, come to my house for a meal, u no need to do the dishes... i think the dasy of the macho man who doesnt do chores is over. if such a person exists he would have been labeled a sloth by now :)

    ladyviral, aiyo! You have a very lazy and dirty brother! Luckily your mom cleans his room for him! : )

    August 29, 2009 at 9:46 PM
  86. foongpc said...

    ladyviral, yeah better not hire a maid if you can do all the chores yourself! : )

    iamthewitch, I am weird right? Even I myself cannot NOT admit it! Washing the dishes is nice! So you hate ironing too? I wish all the clothes don't need to be ironed. Such a hassle! : )

  88. foongpc said...

    superman, do you mean when you are too lazy, you get your wife to do the chores? Haha!

    August 29, 2009 at 9:54 PM
  89. foongpc said...

    manglish, you hate ironing too! Well, looks like a lot of people hate ironing! I don't like to do household chores except for washing the dishes so yes, you can cook for me but I can ONLY wash the dishes for you. Don't ask me to clean any other things! LOL!

    lina, wow! Looks like we have quite a number of things in common. Haha! I hate to step into a wet bathroom!! : )

    wenn, I doubt it! I hate household chores how can I be a good helper? : )

    August 29, 2009 at 10:01 PM
  92. foongpc said...

    mariuca, eh tak ada maid ke? You do all the cleaning? Salute! : )

    I can wash dishes for you provided you cook me a nice meal lah. But cannot mop floor and wipe windows sekali lah cos I hate all other chores! Only like washing dishes. Haha!

    You want to have cats then you must clean up their furs and their houses too lah : )

    Eh, the maid who tried to commit suicide is my sister's maid, not my mom's! The maid was sent to hospital just in time by my sister and after that, she did not want anything to do with that maid ever again! My sister said she would move house if the maid really died in her house!

    SK, err...so who do your laundry and dry your clothes?

    August 29, 2009 at 10:10 PM
  94. foongpc said...

    ayie, wow! That would be a great deal indeed! Maids very expensive in US?

    August 29, 2009 at 10:12 PM
  95. foongpc said...

    monica, I know you don't like washing dishes cos I've read many times before that your dishes tend to pile up in your home! LOL!

    Too bad you can't afford a maid. Then just got to do all the chores yourself! : )

    August 29, 2009 at 10:19 PM
  96. foongpc said...

    che-cheh, luckily the dishes I wash are normally not super oily and dirty! Haha!

    August 29, 2009 at 10:20 PM
  97. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, you like to do household chores, some more hijack the chores from your wife? Wah! Your wife is so lucky!

    If you can do all the chores, better not hire any maids! Why waste money right?

    I find ironing really difficult! I guess I don't have the talent too!

    I am really thinking of getting that irobots. Yeah, there are two - probably I just get the mopping one only. Geting two is too expensive for me lah!

    No I've never worked as a dish washer in restaurants before! I think I just like washing dishes at home, not in restaurants!! : )

    xin, I am homely? maybe. Haha! You are so messy one? Better go clean up! : )

    I still say Blogging is a chore - you feel uneasy if you don't blog for few days just like leaving your house untouched for few days - see? If you say it is a hobby, then can you say working on house chore is just another hobby???? Over to you for your "balas" !
