Tia Antiyas


Indonesian domestic helper

“I’ve been in Hong Kong for 10 years and I feel it’s great here. It’s so much better because it’s so hard to make money in Indonesia. A lot of Indonesian domestic helpers meet up in Causeway Bay on our days off. We can shop for Indonesian items at the specialist stores here and we can also have some fun. For instance, in Victoria Park, it’s not expensive for us to get dressed up and get our photo taken, like a souvenir.”
