FDWs Holding Birthday Party Under Flyover Sparks Hygiene Concerns


Birthday parties can happen anywhere, from chalets, barbeque pits, function rooms, or in the comforts of our own home.

One woman and her group of friends decided to up the ante and host a birthday part underneath a flyover instead.

It’s mostly isolated and out of reach, there’s a lot of space and it’s surrounded by plants and wildflowers. All in all, you can give it three-and-half stars on Yelp.

The Flyover Birthday Party

Julie, who is presumably a domestic worker in Singapore, posted a TikTok video on Sunday (10 Jul), showing how she and her friend scooted under a flyover and stepped into a narrow space to get to where the rest of the group had gathered.

You can tell that it’s a birthday party as the camera briefly catches the colourful helium balloons that spell out “Happy Birthday Jas” at the back wall near the end of the video.

The birthday girl is easy to spot too, as she’s wearing a cute red dress and has a tiara on her head.

It’s slightly hard to tell where the party is happening, although a netizen on Hardware Zone managed to pinpoint that the body of water underneath could be the Kallang River.

Good or Bad Choice?

The social gathering might appear harmless, but netizens on the Hardware Zone forums are all contrarians simply because they can.

One of the thread replies reads, “All these maids, crawl under all those drains, puddles of water, mixed with people unmasked, then go back home to employers’ home to prepare their dinners, take care of the babies. Their sense of hygiene really jialat.”

Dude, you make it sound like they don’t shower or wash their hands.

Additionally, it’s an outdoor setting, not indoor. Technically, they don’t have to wear masks and it’s a relatively small gathering of friends.

Another netizen countered the mean comment easily and called them out on their hypocrisy. We’ve all been children once and played dirty in sand pits, beaches, or rolled on grass.

Honestly, it’s not even that bad.

Another netizen was of the opinion that they should just leave the group alone because they aren’t disturbing anyone and it’s likely that they “just want to TikTok”. As long as they don’t make a mess of the place, they couldn’t care less.

According to the Ministry of Manpower’s (MOM) guidelines for employers and migrant domestic workers on rest day arrangements, employers should encourage their helpers to not gather in public areas if they’re going out.


If it’s because of the pandemic, the precaution makes sense. Otherwise, it’s kind of mean to stop them from gathering.
