A meeting point for domestic helpers

Shirley explains that many elderly people in North Point are cared for by Indonesian domestic helpers, known for their kindness and diligence. They have formed a small community in the area and it is common to see women in hijabs around here. Many also come to AP Mart to buy lunch, which is Halal certified and suitably spicy. As Shirley adds, “we can’t eat without spice!”
