Hong kong hookups
This phenomenon is known locally as “Sunday Funday”.
From as early as 9am on any given Sunday (usually the only day a week Hong Kong’s domestic workers get off), Western men, customarily white, and the city’s maids, typically Filipino and Indonesian, are engrossed in dancing, drinking and discourse in the bars along Lockhart and Jaffe Road.
Hong Kong’s Wan Chai district has long served as an open door to drinking, drugs and exotic entertainment.
Every Sunday, however, the district transforms into a mass speed dating hub for Western men and foreign domestic workers.
“The police get rid of some girls who overstay their visa; their only solution is to get married.” Kate, who is currently single, came to Hong Kong from the Philippines and seems to fit the stereotype. “Not all [Western men] are good,” says Sho, a Filipino domestic helper who frequently goes to Wan Chai on Sundays.
“Not all of them are nice.” A DJ at The Queen Victoria in Wan Chai added that most Western men come to the pub on Sunday for nothing more than a good time.
Mya added, “I would prefer a Filipino man; Filipino men are the best because they tend to be more religious. They say there are just enough examples of success to keep them coming back at the end of every week.I'm looking for someone who can be my sunshine!I am a busy working professional, but would love to be in a great relationship. And you should be ready to accept and cope with this lovely problem.Karen, the manager of the famous Coyote Bar and a former domestic worker from the Philippines, describes the typical Sunday female punters.“We have regular customers who come here to look for Western men,” she said. “ I’m 47 years old and a good Western man is hard to find here.” But while many domestic workers are indeed hoping to find a husband, most are not naive about the intentions of some of their suitors.
