HEY!!! We’re really sorry that we haven’t updated the page in a LONG time!!! Sorry about that…my computer has been fucked up for more then a week and finally I got it together. We have some new pictures which I’ll be adding in the next few days. Some strange things have happened in the past few days in Hong Kong which has surprised us:
#1: Abuse of a Domestic Helper (Gong Yan)
We were so happy to hear that a lady was thrown in jail for 3 years for physically and mentally abusing her domestic helper for more then one year. Some of the abuse we still can’t believe – the most serious abuse was in the following form: The boss asked the domestic helper to undress upon which she stomped all over her fracturing the helper’s ribs and other bones. When I read this newspaper article I was shocked and stunned. What could cause one human to act towards another human in such a degrading and evil manner? How could this lady treat her domestic helper as a bag of flesh and bones for her to punch, kick, swear, yell and torment? We’re sad to think that in our modern world things like this can go on without anybody being able to take care of herself. What is even scarier is that there are around 250,000 thousand helpers from the Philippines, Indonesia, China and other surrounding countries who are in Hong Kong working – how many thousands of them must endure the same humiliating life daily? How many of them are too scared to say anything against their bosses? When the maid in the above story had her bones broken and was admitted to the hospital, the boss came to the hospital to see her. She did not come to the hospital to say “sorry” she came to threaten the maid – she told the maid that if she told anyone about this, the boss was going to kill her family back in Indonesia. Can you believe that? We couldn’t…its a sad world we live in.
