Hong Kong . 菲庸大集会

One of a kind Hong Kong culture, every Sunday is the off day for most of the people in Hong Kong and so do maidservant. Majority of residence in Hong Kong like to hire maidservant from Philippine, over the time Hong Kong has gathered large school of Philippine maid who not working on Sunday makes their gathering at 中环皇后像广场 Statute Square Central Hong Kong just right beside Legislative Council of Hong Kong...

This Sunday morning we decide to take Ferry from 天星码头 towards 中环码头 to once again witness the shocking scene of their Gathering... 
About the Ferry, this is also another core transportation of Hong Kong, during the older days, Technology are still not advance to build the under water passage... people in Hong Kong mainly relaying to the Ferry doing the fetching... Until now, people are still using it as one of the transportation as it still serving well and another reason it is still consider cheap and affordable by majority.



Not only about the costing I mentioned, also along the journey, you are quite able to revel in enjoying the both seacoast. Although both coastal filled up with sky scrapers and concrete structures but when you sitting on the ferry peacefully and take a deep breath, everything seem to have a slight changes... Try it and you know what I mean.

I also witnesses Family can spend a little more time with each other during their ride on the Ferry... 

 We are about to reach after a 30 minutes ride of ferry... and you can also visit the 香港海事博物馆 Hong Kong Maritime Museum if you have extra time. 

If you are finding your way to the Philippine maidservant gathering from the 中环码头, definitely you will pass by this Apple Store... perhaps this is one of the largest store of Apple chain.... You can clearly see that is is so crowded inside the Store... Well, it is really true said by the Doctor; an apple a day, you keeps Doctor away.

Today the Human walk way not only serving those who passes by, also giving the maid a place to hand around... They can have many activities over here, as they can picnic, resting, playing cards, trimming their hair and etc... 

Guess today is my lucky day, I'm about to witness the yearly parade which celebrating by the Philippine. They also brought their culture here into Hong Kong, the Philippians take it very seriously quite number of participants, also they built their stage here right at the center of the road... Hong Kong Police also shown their liner to close down the road for them to serve their activity here. 

 If you holding you camera in hand, you can easily attract their attention towards you. They are very warm and always wearing their smile on their face...
See they even will stop and pose for your camera...


Many other visitors also taking this opportunity to snapping photos with them...
