Filipinos in Hong Kong... as of February 2015 there were 166,743 Philippine OFW in Hong Kong. On Sundays they receive a required 12 hour time-off period from their work... and they go to the streets, malls, and parks to get together with each other. Hong Kong is expensive... just like the Philippines, they entertain each other in chat, foods, dancing, singing, and many go to church in the morning... There are literally 1000's every Sunday hanging out like this... block after block, street after street, park after park, shady underpass and shady underpass. It was amazing and uniquely filipino! Never seen anything like it...

Weird shit considering how many parks there are and how easy it is to get around with a train.....

 

Why would anyone just sit on the street? :dance:

Singapore used to be the same, before mobile 'phones became affordable.

 

You'd find, on a Sunday, whole streets of Sri Lankans, streets of Filipinos, streets of Indians, Thais, etc.  Fascinating to see, but of its time I suppose.  

 

With technology, those large gatherings are not so predictable anymore.

same for Thais and Indonesians

They also never come to our malls, restaurants or cafes, not even fast food places, to the point whenever restaurant staff sees a SE asian they think it's a servant of some others.

Once I was walking to the Star Ferry terminal from Hong Kong going to Kowloon.  Hundreds of Filipinos had spread blankets out on the cement walkway and were chatting, eating, playing cards, ...  Kinda eerie, really.

I have talked to many Filipinos that work outside the Phils, and very few have anything to show for their years of work.

because the agency takes most of it? I wonder why it's not a state business. No point for either side to pay for the middle-man.
