Her four-year-old daughter would avoid their maid when she and her husband were at home, and ask them to take care of her instead.
Later on, the girl started crying when her mum was about to leave the house, prompting her parents to install a CCTV in their living room.
What the spy camera caught over eight hours from Feb 9 to 10 shocked them.
The maid was seen slapping the girl on the head, hitting her on the arm and pulling her hair. Once, she even pointed a knife at the girl and flung it near her.
A police report was lodged, and on Tuesday April 10, the Myanmar maid was sentenced to three months’ jail for criminal intimidation, with an intent to cause the girl alarm.
