A month ago, Filipino maids in Singapore were criticized for their 'Gulong gulong park' party in Singapore.

Every Sunday, Filipino maids gather to relax and socialize in the front area of the Ion Orchard mall. The place is called 'Gulong gulong' park and right in front of it are high-end international brands. Some mall employees and shoppers complain that the presence of Filipino maids and workers lessen the prestige of the mall.

Now, the Filipino workers speak out about the discrimination they face from foreigners and even some unexpected group of people.
