Human Mules

Why carry your own bag to school when you can stride out confidently and unfettered in front of your very own human mule?

A solid grounding in arrogance, superiority and self importance. Just the ticket for the youth of HK.

A solid grounding in arrogance, superiority and self importance. Cornerstones for a great start to life in HK.

I bark orders at my slave without even turning around or breaking my stride. Just like mummy does.

    There is a woman who works out at my gym. Usually she comes in with her helper after work, around 6:00PM or so, three times a week. The helper carries her workout bag. While the woman works out, the helper has to sit in the lounge and wait for her to finish her workout. After the workout, the woman leaves with the helper carrying the workout bag home. Same scenario for the kid, same for the adult.

  3. lamma island bound in october for 3 months. starting to think 3 months might be too much.

    Have to admit having help around the house especially working hard all day would be nice but these people are still human beings with family’s back home whom they are supporting much like Mexican migrant workers back in America, they should be treated as such. I still don’t have one coz it’s not nesesarry. I’ve spoken to many of them and they all say the same thing they all wish they could work for westerners coz we treat them well…can’t say the same for their Chinese employers!

  5. Love your blog! I’ve been reading and hearing so many horror stories about domestic workers here

  6. Lamboferruccio says:

    The one on the news about the Indonesia helper last week was horrific were she was physically abused tied up forced to drink toilet water WTF is wrong with these people! Granted not all HK Chinese are like this I know these are extreme cases but even the simple shit like paying their helpers extra to watch their baby on their only day off is fucking redicilous I mean the helpers are out there with all their friends on Sunday with the kid en tow, if these people can’t raise their own kids then what are they just trophies I don’t get it!

  7. bigturd says:

    Yes, Lamboferruccio, kids are “life trophies” in HK, used to elevate the status of their “owner”. They’re usually acquired after a helper, marriage, a miniature schnauzer, a miniature poodle, and a car. After birth the unfortunate tyke typically goes through a couple of decades of living hell, the chief focus being to raise the “status” of his or her parents. I bet being a kid in HK is just awful – no fun, appointments needed for play dates, and getting your bag carried to school by a slave is one of the few cringe, sorry fringe, benefits.

  8. Shit bigturd…that’s exactly what happens. Spot on

    capital LOLS

    Well, people carrying suitcases to stores are actually mainland Chinese tourists

  10. Well Anonymous 2013/11/27 at 10:47pm…they are in Hong Kong. This blog is about doings…in Hong Kong. Get it?

  11. Anonymous says:

    This is offensive and I will report this blog as soon a I can. No buts or ifs. It’s outrageous and racist.

  12. Reuben says:

    Hardly. It is actually quite realistic and accurate. Offensive, how about the toothpaste marketed and sold in HK with a black face? Start there, if you want to cover racist issues.

  13. Ted says:

    Anyone else see the irony of someone from HK calling someone racist?

  14. Anonymous says:

    This is extremely racist. You’re saying HK sucks but honestly look at your country. Any better? No? I thought so.

  15. Don Quixote forever! says:

    Is not racist its the painful truth, better change you HK pigs.

  16. Fanny Poon says:

    Racist? No, you’re confused. We’re mocking your culture, not your race. There’s nothing wrong with the Chinese race, genetically or phenotypically. Hong Kong Chinese culture, on the other hand, is ignorant, barbaric, and outright disgusting.

  17. Anonymous says:

    Barbaric? Disgusting? You know HOW many whites want to get into this country?

  18. Reuben says:

    Hardly, more Chinese and every other nationality prefer the freedoms, opportunities, and far better lifestyle in the US.

  19. Chris G says:

    And not many return permanently to China/HK after sampling life in a western country either.

  20. End of Hk says:

    The Cantonese in HK change their nationality easily. In other countries , a lot of people were damaged by their crimes. Describe the life in here, it’s like live with 7millions of mongies in ruins made by millions of dustbins.

  21. End of Hk says:

    The culture in Hong kong is diseased and sickening. Their wickedness has reached the ultimate height. Their evil deeds are still being done.

    Wow! Imagine what it must have been like in that flat for the Filipino lady…

    She was probably scared shit out of her mind. Her evil Chinese employers yelling and screaming, and the police (with their smug smiles) presumably there to arrest her for something she probably didn’t even do. According to the article the Chinese people involved didn’t even know how much money they had to begin with or what was indeed missing. Sounds very fishy to me!

    What a shame that she jumped to her death, probably in despair of the situation, yet her evil Chinese employers get to go on with their lives. Evil exists in all different forms. I will declare that most (not all) people in this city are evil fucking bastards!

  25. Reuben L Sushman says:

    Yes, I was discussing the plight of helpers yesterday. I was asking if there will ever come a day when there will be Chinese helpers again, or is that simply too sacrilege to discuss?

  26. Guest says:

    “And not many return permanently to China/HK after sampling life in a western country either.”

    I personally know at least a dozen who did.

    Not that they don’t know about their own country’s faults or that their own government is full of lies.

    But they found that their job and/or business prospects are superior in China.

    To be fair, that was before China’s current economic slowdown.

    “I personally know at least a dozen who did”.

    I said permanently. The 12 of them may culturally enrich somewhere else in a year or two
