“The police get rid of some girls who overstay their visa; their only solution is to get married.” Kate, who is currently single, came to Hong Kong from the Philippines and seems to fit the stereotype. “Not all [Western men] are good,” says Sho, a Filipino domestic helper who frequently goes to Wan Chai on Sundays.“Not all of them are nice.” A DJ at The Queen Victoria in Wan Chai added that most Western men come to the pub on Sunday for nothing more than a good time.Ellen Howard has been in Hong Kong for almost 20 years. He is from America and he is a very good husband,” she said. “They come in to look good for the wedding of a friend who’s marrying a Western man, hoping to find a Western man at the wedding… ” For some women, though, true love, and not simply marrying a Western man, is the ultimate goal.

One of the best things in life is to love and be loved, and I believe there are some good men out there. A very mature Hong Kong woman in good shape of soul, mind and body is looking for a good buddy to do things together, to share views on books & movies, to exchange recipes, and to explore interesting places around us.
This phenomenon is known locally as “Sunday Funday”.
From as early as 9am on any given Sunday (usually the only day a week Hong Kong’s domestic workers get off), Western men, customarily white, and the city’s maids, typically Filipino and Indonesian, are engrossed in dancing, drinking and discourse in the bars along Lockhart and Jaffe Road.

Some women hope, even expect, to find more than just sex.
We can always start off as friends for sure and coast to wherever the future leads us.
