A 24-part series “Samsui Woman” explores the hard and gruesome lives of these women who, in order to support their family in China, leaves their homeland Sanshui to work as labourers in construction sites in Singapore. Things, of course do not go as smoothly as planned and when some of them are laid off from work for fighting, Ah Xiu, unable to resist the hardships, succumbs to the bait of a bar-owner and becomes a waitress where she was almost raped and even beaten up when she refused to give in to a customer’s delirious demands. Ah Gui, on the other hand, falls in love with a driver but finds that she is unable to marry him as her parents in China had arranged a marriage for her. After the arranged marriage, not only had she to support her parents and husband, she also had to send money home for her husband to find a mistress to bear children for the family since she is away. A definite tear-jerker, also guaranteed to send the adrenaline rising with exciting scenes – loan sharks killing for unpaid loans and scoundrels forcing innocent young girls into prostitution. “Samsui Woman” – a serial not to be missed. Starring: Zeng Hui Fen, Hong Hui Fang, Huang Wen Yong and Li Wen Hai. This serial received high ratings and is very popular with both local and foreign audiences.
