Every Sunday, Filipino maids gather to relax and socialize in the front area of the Ion Orchard Mall. They refer to the place as "Gulong Park." Right in front of it are stores showcasing high-end international brands. Some mall employees and shoppers complain that the presence of Filipino maids and workers lessen the prestige of the mall. There are also those who don't mind it at all.
Filipino workers also speak out about how foreigners—as well as an "unexpected" group of people—react to their weekly gathering.
