Maids, migrants accused of too much affection in public
A 45-year-old wrote in a newspaper that foreign domestic workers and migrants were sometimes being too intimate near railway station
An underground walkway near a Singapore railway station has become a popular rendezvous for foreign domestic workers, but their displays of affection have upset some Singaporeans.
One 45-year-old resident wrote to the Shin Min Daily News to complain that some couples were displaying too much affection, leading reporters from the paper to carry out their own investigation at the Ang Mo Kio MRT Station.
The reporters discovered at least four pairs of migrant worker lovers cuddling and kissing. However, residents had mixed views about the public displays of affection, with most saying it was not causing a problem in the community.
Residents told the reporters they see maids meeting and spending Sundays in a nearby park or in the tunnel. They added that as long as they did not block the way their freedom to enjoy their rest day should be respected.
