Today, I'm going to move away from quotes and include some idioms in this blog. I have been teaching my children idioms, in Malay and Chinese recently. Idioms are fun. They are a good way to add some color to your language, just like quotes.

The idiom that comes to my mind today is "Add Insult To Injury" or "Rub Salt To Wound" or another idiom would be "To kick a man when he is down."

Why am I thinking of these idioms? My maid went back home during mid-contract and never returned. She is considered a runaway maid. I had to make a police report and had to pay a fine at the immigration when cancelling the work permit. That is certainly "adding insult to injury". Through no fault of mine, my maid did not return to work. I had to bear the expenses of renewing her work permit, passport and buy insurance and air tickets for her and in addition to that, I was fined. Pin It
