On most evenings, there’ll be groups of foreign workers of various nationalities having picnics on grass patches EVERYWHERE. They sit around having food and drinks, and almost always never clear up after they finish, leaving debris all over the place. Sometimes some of them get drunk and get rowdy or even fight with one another. I understand these chaps don’t have many options for entertainment, I try to emphatise with that, but it gets overboard when they start to make trouble and mess up the place.
Also on weekend evenings, some of the buses that go past my place are filled with foreign construction workers, presumably going back to their quarters after a day out. It gets quite scary when I board the bus and find dozens of pairs of eyes going all over me like I’m some alien… when this is my country! Sorry, maybe I’m too sensitive, but I personally feel quite uncomfortable about it, and I’m a guy. I wonder how girls feel about such a situation.
