The Come Hither Look Thursday, 15 March 2007

An email exchange with GB reminded me of an incident that happened a few years back.  I was having my dinner in the S11 hawker centre in Ang Mo Kio town centre when i suddenly became aware that someone was signalling to me.  I looked carefully and sitting a few table ahead of me was a Chinese woman with long black hair.  She was wearing a skirt and sitting with her legs crossed.  She was looking at me with her head tilted down (think Princess Diana).  I wasn’t sure with what I was seeing so I continued with my dinner while taking occasional glances at her.  And there it was again… she gave me the come-hither look.  When she wasn’t getting the response she anticipated from me, she started stroking her hair while looking at me – a woman’s signal that she is interested.  I was greatly amused as this was the first time something like this, from a stranger, had happened to me.  I smiled.  That seemed to have given her some encouragement as she started signalled with a nod to her head towards the chair next to her, beckoning me to come over.  Now, I would be alright with this if this was a pub or a club but this was taking place in a brightly lit hawker centre! She looked older than me and that got me thinking that she might be a Working Lady.  I also started to notice that the hawkers sitting near us had also discovered the going ons between us.  She beckoned me over once more but I smiled and shook my head slightly as I got up to leave.  I had finished my dinner then.  A look of disappointment came over her and she beckoned me over with her head a little more vigourously.  I smiled and left.  I wonder what I would have done if she had sat at my table!

From a gay man’s point of view in the equivalent situation, there’s always a concern that there’s been a misunderstanding and that the other guy isn’t gay after all. But with a guy on girl situation, that concern doesn’t exist. If you make a mistake, the girl probably isn’t going to hit you, or ‘out’ you as a heterosexual!

Your concern about whether she was Professional is probably valid, even though I didn’t think such things were meant to exist in Singapore. In my experience, women don’t usually behave like that, but then my experience is rather limited in this area!

Hi GB,

The Working Ladies or pros have invaded Singapore!! It started about 5 years ago and the newspapers had many articles about these Mainland Chinese women approaching middle aged to old men in heartland coffee shops, many of which have not had the attention of sweet young things for a long time. Some of these women had ruined families with their trade and some had even sweet-talked the old men into parting with life savings. As a result, Mainland Chinese women are often viewed negatively here in Singapore especially if they have not assimilated into the local culture.
