Victoria Park on Sundays

Victoria Park (I think, or a park in the Central, by the water) had been taken over by the Filipino maids on Sundays. It’s pretty grand. A sea of them, chatting in their dialects. A few men were spotted, but mostly were maids who enjoyed their only day off.  They are sending ever larger $$ home, many are the major bread winners, supporting their hubbies and children.  But the weakening dollar is making it tougher to stay in the black.  The 120,000 strong maids that take over Victoria Park on Sundays are making about US$400 a month, plus the entertainers in the bars, etc. sending home $144m annually.
