Domestic helpers and foreign workers kissing and hugging at Ang Mo Kio underpass draws public concern

Some members of the public have complained about overtly public displays of affection between some domestic helpers and migrant workers at the Ang Mo Kio MRT underpass.

According to a 45-year-old executive, Ms Liu, the underpass has turned into a “hot spot” for gatherings between foreign workers who congregate there for picnics and such every Saturday and Sunday, between 10am and 7pm.

Reporters from the Chinese daily who visited the location on Sunday, 4 Mar, wrote that they spotted at least four pairs of foreign workers kissing and hugging under the underpass during the evening.

One Ang Mo Kio resident, 36-year-old housewife Anita, said that the foreign workers began gathering in the area from over one year ago and that they can be noisy, at times: “They will have lunch at the park nearby. Sometimes they can get noisy until I can hear it from my home.”

Other residents reportedly expressed concerns that the public kissing and hugging will be a bad influence on children.

Domestic helpers interviewed by the Chinese daily had a different take on the issue. An unnamed domestic helper said that the workers are simply eating and chatting and that they do not interfere with residents going about their day.

    • You can say it, but also you can divert your kid when only a pair misbehaving (the probabilities are) The case is different for helpers. It will be awkward to handle when every where you look someone misbehaving in public space on Sundays.

  1. Love is in the air everywhere I look around
    Love is in the air every sight and every sound
    And I don’t know if I’m being foolish
    Don’t know if I’m being wise
    But it’s something that I must believe in

    • Foong Mun Loh No one should give him a break as he is the world’s highest paid politician who does nothing to help the people, he only knows
      how to increase taxes….

  2. Public is only concern when they don’t see bangla cocks probing pinoy vegs…. HEY Public just go up to them and tell them you want a free anal sex show… STUPIDDD PUBLIC CONCERN???

  3. This is what the people vote for so suck it up. This is the PM ward so suck it up. He loves foreigners. The is one of the ward that garnered the highest votes to PAP so suck it up. This is the Singapore that most voted for… erm… can I still call this red dot Singapore? We are facing an identity crisis now.

  4. There isn’t any wrong culture brought into here by domestic helpers or workers! It’s just the freedom they are using like what locales do! They are restricted to spend time on their own since their work is so and so! Which leads over crowding on weekends in public places. It is the only possiblity they have on them. I don’t see a better solution but government shall write to employers about some basic discipline they need have, may be!

  5. they think they are ang mo follow like western style but they nvr realise they are come from kumpong somemore can action until like nobody business hahahaha

  6. Mind your own business lah.at least they are under amk underpass.some teen ager now also do kissing on escalator malls anywhere.so why mind them becaause they are just a maid?

  7. Maybe built some coin operated small cubicles so the these peoples can do their job. After all we only need a small space to make love. Then we also make money from the rental of the cubicles. Two dollars e time usage

    • Two dollars per entry.. they can’t stay long inside. As it will be too hot to sustain. So many can make use of the cubicles. Once all of them had been done…they will want to go home to sleep.

    • Sim ..not to worry about the cost. It can be recovered in a matter of time. There are about 2 millions males and females foreign workers in Singapore. Even half of that number use the cubicles…we make $2 millions. ..simple arithmetic.

  8. Mrt also got people kissing and hugging. Some people have no contentment. They complained in almost everything. If u don’t want to see these maids then don’t fucking hire one and see how.

  9. Come on you constipated Singaporeans, give domestic helpers and foreign workers a break! They work hard for you during the week and are entitled to some social life. You sound like the ruling regime… cannot do this, cannot do that, rules, rules, rules and more rules! Isn’t your life regulated enough in this over regulated country!

  10. If nothing goes wrong to passer by.. Nothing really of concern.
    All it takes is one pretty passerby get harassed by the groups. All hell will break loose on them.
    Just wait for the day.

  11. The rules are always for employers mistake not for foreigners and domestic helpers is not fare to us

  12. Hahaha..so strange that we have become such narrow minded people especially now when we are in this digital age. Shall everyone just buy a sex robot and just screw and do everything at home? Getting so ridiculous seeing all these “expressed concerns”. Just a thought.

  13. Is Singapore society ready to accept, don’t talk about embracing, public show of private intimacy? Sincerely, I doubt it. This is not what we want to promote as a social norm here in Singapore. What say you, the PaP Sg Government? Do something to stop this!

  14. Bullshit you have a lot teenage pregnancy there..im been there for ten yrs and i saw it myself with uniform girls and boys doing something at the play ground…holly shit you think you are so clean..

  15. Give them their freedom as long as they are not doing beyond hugging and kissing. They are also human and have feelings. They feel also what you feel. Please lets not over justified because they are just workers. Just think and put your stuation on theirs.
