im glad that the film won something but why must it be Pilipino who plays the maid in every film!!?? WE'RE MORE THAN JUST MAIDS AND THE LIKES YOU KNOW!! Our singers and sportsmen are well-known in America and around the world, and only a SMALL portion of OFW work as maids!! they're more on the professional side.

There is nothing wrong in being a maid. There is dignity in every job. The maid plays an important role in the family and the society may it be in Singapore or every where else in the world. I think this film honoured and recognised this fact. Kudos and congratulations to Director Anthony Chen, Angeli and all the cast of the film.

why don't you accept the fact that your country is an exporter of maids? in east asia and Singapore, Filipino are strictly maids only so it's nothing you should be so surprised about
