My Fingers are Sticky in Hong Kong
STORY: Because Hong Kong is only a few hours by plane from Manila, chances are you’ll find Filipinos there. Actually, all one hundred forty thousand of them are now based and working as household help, IT specialists, bankers and musicians, nonetheless. I remember the first time I went to this place. I was tagged along by a Greek solo backpacker I met in 2007 at Tsim Tsa Tsui. She wanted to take me to this great club in Central, Hong Kong Island. Little did i know, i will be heading to Sticky Fingers. Recently, I came back and the place looked different. The interiors have changed for the better, but it's the same cool and chill vibe which is always pleasant and exciting. So many expats were amped for the night, dancing and singing to famous tunes covered by Filipino cover artists. I couldn’t help but feel proud where I am from. I felt home there.
I realized one thing, as I sip my bitter Guinness beer. If more and more people would frequent Filipino owned bars/clubs in Hong Kong or anywhere in the world, we would be helping out our fellowmen. More income for the bars/clubs mean more jobs for Filipinos. Therefore, more money for the families of these Filipinos. So I say, support Philippines in Hong Kong. We are not only helping our fellowmen, we are also helping our country prosper. Think about it.
