Hard times for ladyboys?
Nothing unusual about that, except that it's 7.30 in the evening!
The normal time for these ladyboys is around midnight.
A one off happening? Maybe, but I don't think so, it's probably a sign of the times. The Thai ladyboys upstairs have complained of few guys around and have visibly show much greater interest in just anybody walking past their bars. Ladyboys who serve at the lower end, Rowell Road, don't seem to be affected as yet although I did notice fewer customers around.
The good part for the customers is that, initially, prices look to be on their way down. The bad part is that, soon, fewer ladyboys will come to this part of the world. Some three quarters of ladyboys in Singapore are not local. If prices become too low it won't be worth their while to come out unless we see a drastic drop in accommodation and airfares. Only time will tell.
What about you guys out there? Have you noticed anything? Ladyboys offering lower prices than before?
