Chow Hoy is an elderly Chinese immigrant living in Mexico.
Chow Hoy can frequently be encountered playing Blackjack at the saloon in Chuparosa. He appears to live within the small Chinese community in El Matadero, though unlike most of the other immigrants there he does not seem to hold any kind of job.
Chow spends most of his time lounging around the slaughterhouse, smoking opium and conversing with the other inhabitants. During evenings in Chuparosa he can sometimes be seen waiting at the train station, implying that he often travels by rail between the town and his home in El Matadero.
Néih hóu. (你好 in Chinese - Cantonese)
—Chow Hoy greeting someone
Mut gam ngaam ge. ("What a coincidence", 咁啱嘅 in Chinese - Cantonese)
