There were still seats available in the cafe, but a family apparently did not allow their maid to sit with them. Instead, she stood in a corner, said STOMPer benji.
“The family noticed that I took pictures of them, so they asked her to sit down. But she was still left at the corner.
I approached her to offer her a drink but she just shook her head. Tears were welling up in her eyes.
She said she was part of that family. She looked like she was quite new.”

Do you think this is sad? I think this is disgusting.
How would you feel if you went overseas for a holiday or to work, and they made you stand in a corner because you were a foreigner?
You probably don’t know what it feels like, and trust me, you don’t want to know what it feels like. Take it from a Chinese girl who has lived in a Western country and crossed paths with the occasional racist Westerner.
Singapore is a nation with core values, always striving for a balance of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.
Don’t upset our balance please.
Treat others how you want them to treat you.
Not all Singaporeans are perfect, but not all of them are bad. I have a lot of nicer things to post soon! Stay tuned.
