Nuclear Family - Hong Kong Style

A typical family taking a stroll on the Hung Hom waterfront. A mother with children. Except that there was no father. Instead, there was the ubiquitous maid.

Having paid for the maid, many fathers consider their responsibilities to the family fulfilled. Many children these days are effectively raised by the maid. Considering the added responsibilities, some have a legitimate claim to be underpaid.

In this particular case, at least it was the mother who was holding the children's hands, not the maid.
