"Dark Side of Guangzhou" O_O
Well, it's not actually the dark side like I said in the topic (but it's still look very bad for me). And before I told story, I want to acknowledge you guys that this is not my definition of "relaxation". My relaxation are like watching every movies I can find or reading very good books. But still, there are occationally that I have to go these kind of places. This time is a must because it's a kind of duty. Although this time it's in Guangzhou which I never have been there before.
So last night we have a customer who came to use our service. We wanted to entertain him by taking him to some place (you know what I mean). So we asked driver to take us to some good place. When we arrived, it's indeed a very good place because all (well, almost all) the women who came to greet us are very beautiful and so attrctive. So we went in, have karaoke and few drinks. For like 1 hour, the manager bring girls for us to pick. For whom who curious about the price, if you just want them to accompany you for drink and sing, then you can pay just 100 renminbi. But if you want to take it further, the price are quite various. It's about 300 renminbi for a very good looking chinese woman (which of course, I didn't take it further).
But anyway I pick one girl to sit and drink with me (she looks so good that if she works in Thailand, she can be the most favorite one). I talked to her about many things (in the very hard way because she speaks no english and I pretty suck at chinese). She saids she is 22 now and came from xi'an (pretty far from here). She told me that she came to Guangzhou because there's a pretty good chance for her to get a job in this very big town. So I asked her why she pick this job anyway. She said she didn't have much education, so if she have to work as a normal job, all she can be is only salesperson in some shop (which pay not more than 1000 renminbi per month). But in here, she can made money around 300-400 or more on a good day. So whats the point of being poor girl in this town, right? Thats what she said.
So my night ended around 2 am in the morning (cuz I have to wait for customers relaxation). On the way back, I thought about the similarity of being this kind of girl between Bangkok and Guangzhou. I found it, at some point, is not much different from each other. Its because very low minimum wage forced many suburban girls to make a living like this. I know that they can tolerate with the minimum wage, but why would they want to live like that if they can gain it more? So I think in the big city like this or even Bangkok, there will always be the big gap between people who are so filthy rich and people who just can afford to sleep under the bridge. For me, I just hate that so much.
