The barrage of questions was surprising, but we answered them dutifully, and finally, seemingly satisfied, the guard left us alone. We assumed at first it was just diligent night security at work, and would not have brought up the incident to the group had similar things not kept happening that night. We four girls and our guy friend were not allowed entry into the club as a group unless we spent a minimum bombshell sum, but when we split up into two separate groups at the next place we had no problems.
If we so much as paused for a breath while crossing the hotel lobby, hotel security was right there asking questions immediately about our motives — even as I made my way up to the room alone at 2am, with my keycard in plain sight, I was not let off the hook and asked repeatedly where I was going and who my room was registered to. Sex Workers.
While the Eastern European sort of blonde hair blue eyes look was quite common, the Chinese and other Asian sex workers were also a rising figure in the nightlife scene. That was something new to me. In retrospect, it is worth a chuckle.
A lot of things made more sense after that revelation though — why the security clamped down on women in the lobbies, the refusal of entry at the first club…. I was quite happy to be back up in the room, taking a bath to try and get the smell of cigarette smoke out of my hair.
