2 Beautiful Girls, 2 Different Life

She came out of the car like an angel welcoming the Earth. It was no ordinary car, it was the latest BMW E series with its rim modified if I am not mistaken. I would have taken note of that car had I seen it whizzing past me on the road. Now, however, I took note of the angel that just got out of it. Like an angel sent from above, she wore a white dress that shows off her slim shoulders. She was pretty, sweet looking with a fair porcelain complexion, unlike others in her profession who look aged and haggard. She has a slim build and was not trashy looking at all. She looked at me as I got down on a motorbike probably wondering if I am in the same profession as her, considering I was also stepping into an area frequented by people of her stature.

The man who got out of the car next to her meanwhile looked almost like he can be her father. However, considering he was fetching her to a place like this, one would think twice. He was not bad looking, just old, garbed in working attire, probably just after work, seeking for some form of relaxation from the daily grit of life. They headed towards the hotel next door and whatever happens after that is beyond my imagination.

On the other side of the world, another pretty lady emerged in front of me. I met her in the dressing room of the gym while I was changing after my daily workout. This one however did not look like an angel, she was garbed in a worn down dark blue T-shirt. She was devoid of make-up but despite that, one could see that she has a pretty face, fair skinned with spots of pigmentation. This girl however might be earning only one tenth of what the angelic girl earned. While this girl could be working longer hours and putting in more effort in cleaning toilets and mopping the huge floors in the gym and feeling tired after hard days work, the other girl could be earning 10 times the salary with just one to two hours of coercing and pumping work. While it might seem easy and lucrative, she had given up a lot more to be where she is, losing her pride and dignity. Both of them came from the same country called China, migrated to a new country called Singapore, seeking for more money and glory. Noone better than the other. Just different lifes, different luck.
