Beautiful photos "YawningBread". Do post more photos of domestic workers from Indonesia and the Philippines. They really look happy

Hi Alex - interesting that you (and I presume Singaporeans) would use the Brazilian word 'futsal' when there is a perfectly good term in English: 'five-a-side'...

What a very moving photo-essay! Such a range of histiries and experiences amongst those playing, but still plenty of smiles from people who perhaps have too little to smile about.

Still, it was some poignant for me that the winners should have been a presumably well-fed and housed 'professional' singaporean one .... or do I mean it was ironic on Migrant's Day?
