The wicked witches of the East. The malevolent rulers of Puntopia. Those who tyrannize their menfolk. Menfolk, been their husbands, boyfriends or fuck buddies! It doesn’t really matter to them who they are. For the sisters, it’s all about getting to Puntopia to spend, buy, eat and spend more. The men are merely the conduit. The channel. The means to an end. They look upon their male escorts as none other than chaperones from hotel to casino and back to the hotel, who have no choice but to pick up the tab along the way.

Once having arrived at the great shimmering edifices of Puntopia, and their de-facto walking cash machine male companions have settled in, left hunched over their chips and all set to lose a few mill, the sisters slip away. To other tables and corners of the gargantuan halls filled with predominantly dour looking faces. They like to gamble his money, but pretend they are single and stinking rich. So anonymity on other decks is preferred.

Then it’s time for the sisters rendezvous. Orchestrated in advance back in China, via Wechat. Sexting too. Not with each other of course. No sexting is merely frivolous flirting in between more serious sister talk, with the other men, that fill their holes in exchange for money, when the men folk they have left back in the halls are not available or have run out of cash.

But ultimately the sisters prefer their own company, needing time together to skinner, gossip and scheme on how to blow even more of their duenna’s dosh. Picking a pricey eatery on his card, is one such way. Quaffing overpriced steaks, waffles, ice cream and coffee and showing off their designer label apparel purchases is the name of the game. The exploits and sexploits. It’s all part of the Puntopia allure.
