Pak Mamat told me this morning that he received many job offers, which he is very thankful. I am willing to let him go earlier if he can find another job which fits his schedule. However, being the ever honest and professional Pak Mamat, he refused to leave for another job early and insisted to work for my family till mid December after we leave Jakarta. He still insisted even with my assurance that it is ok.
I do not wish him to miss work opportunities because of me but if you are really looking for a gardener, Pak Mamat is worth waiting for till Dec. Otherwise, he is available for work now from Monday - Friday 12 noon till 4pm since he works for me from 7-11am mon-fri.
