They had met about half a year ago and started going steady a few months later.

Bangladeshi national Md Sumon Md Lutfar, 22, who worked in an air-con company, would lavish gifts such as a silver necklace on his girlfriend, Ms Rezzilyn Lodia Vinegas, 33, a Filipino maid. The couple even got engaged.

But their love story ended tragically when their bodies were found in a Geylang hotel room on Sunday night. Both had cuts on their limbs.

another bad news, another sad love story, another filipina involved with this kind of unconditional love affair.

plsssss make this one as a lesson to learn for the others. R.I.P

this should serve as an eye opener to singaporean lawmakers. whether we like it or not, singapore as a country has made itself known as a working and studying place for most of us asians. some of the more intelligent filipina maids, use their being employed in singapore as a stepping stone for their more ambitious purpose of seeking greener pastures to other countries such as the uk, canada and probably to the united states. but some, mark my word, "some" not all, had forgotten their main reason why they are in singapore. some involved themselves with this kind of intimate relationships to other workers even if they are already married back to their hometown. this kind of unlawful interracial relations would sometimes end up to broken families. thus, the offsprings from the earlier marriages would suffer the most painful effect of such stupidity which in return to the families left, would bring them mental torture, sleepless nights, depression and endless hurtings never ever imagined they could experience from the effect of the going of their respective spouses to singapore. so now, let me use this blog to make a pleading to singaporean lawmakers to please create a law or if its already existing then review and insert more  force and more teeth to that law, wherein, maids, especially those that are already married in their home country, should never have an intimate relation of having a boyfriend to other guys while they are in singapore; that doing such unlawful act would mean outright dismissal from their job and should be sent rightaway to their respective country of origin. this law should also penalize their employers if they have the knowledge of the wrongdoings of their employee and tolerating such a sin commited by their maids. a family,............. is still a family whatever it takes.... i appreciate it much if someday soon, singapore would preserve the sanctity and importance of  their worker's and the worker's family's interests. comments are welcome to this blog. i like to read your opinions pls...

I totally disagree with this statement! Being a MAID is not a reason for anyone to think that they are not allowed to have intimate relationship towards opposite sex while working in Singapore.  They are also human beings capable of feeling something towards others. Being into a relationship is not unlawful act for the maid, it is a choice for them to make. If they choose to go for a relationship then it's their decision and  we can't blame them, they have their own mind to know what is good or bad for themselves. You can't penalize the employers as well for such things like this, maids have their freedom of choice as everybody else.

Being married back to home countries won't stop maid to go into relationship as well, sometimes they need this love and affection to enjoy life and ease the homesickness from families. It doesn't mean they don't love their families back home because they know they do.

It made me sad reading your post, maybe you haven't been away from your family that's why it was easy for you to say that.

i posted this because , i for one, is also an innocent victim of this so called intimate relationship.   i may not be as familiar as you do in terms of singapore laws on family ties but from the basics of humanity and to most countries i have been, that i have seen the effects of such thing. it may cause craziness, broken families, suicide and death as what has had happened. i've been away most of the time from my family and that should not be the reason for me to commit adultery and affairs beyond marriage. i surmised therefore, for you to experience also, to have full knowledge that your spouse is having sex with another. then let us see how you will feel. i appreciate it much if you make your mouth wide open and laugh at the top of your voice after seeing your spouse doing sex with another...

2dk mama: to work overseas is an endless sacrifice for you and your family left at your home country. that is why am telling you at the top of this conversation that: if your foolish lust is soaring higher that your pride, then best for you to go back home to your respective family than to have an affair in singapore. your family back home is expecting for your return as clean as when you left so make all necessary precaution also not to bite in any temptation. but if you think your not going anywhere and bite it, then i advice you therefore to break the knot from one then tie it to another one. i hope you get my grammar right...

I do not disagree with your point of being unfaithful towards your loved ones back home. It is not the right thing to do but what I'm saying is that it's not right for you to suggest to forbid and make it illegal for the maid to commit into a relationship while working abroad. That is totally ridiculous, what do you think of maids? They are slaves, animals and not a human?  They are not allowed to have feelings, fall inlove, be human? That is the point in your writing that upset me totally.

 

i got your point here DK Mama. nice reading it for future references. i would just like t specify here that married maids indulging in such behaviour within the entirety of their staying there, suggest to evil desires not for their happiness but something not connected right with the main purpose of staying overseas. not so much ado for this and am grateful to read such kind of comments. thank you.
