Maids' Day

By RobboB  
Every Sunday in Hong Kong the maids congregate and spend their only day off chatting, singing, dancing, holding impromptu cat walk shows (as is the case here). They even have some protest stalls, food stalls and a stage for performances. The authorities close some of the streets to allow all of this to go on. As far as I know it happens every Sunday. I am sure they work hard for not a lot but this is a wonderful tradition.

And it looks as though they occupy the most expensive shop fronts to do it... Fascinating.
The sort of travelogue that I like - the sort that tends to get Tourist Boards jittery.

90% of the people who do this are from the Philippines, a few years back there was a big demonstration by the Hong Kong people. They do not want them here, with around 200,000 working here in one way or another.. they wanted to be able to bring all there family here to live as well.
With all the strain on hospitals and other resources with all the people coming over from the main land China mainly to give birth as the hospitals are a lot better here in HK, the Hong Kongers just do not want them here.
There is constant fighting going on between these people and H K ers
