Elitista 101

A friend recently forwarded this to me. It’s a scanned article from a magazine called “People Asia” which, apparently, seeks to showcase the many wonderful things that the people of Asia have to offer. The title of the article — “From Boracay to Greece” — was very promising. I expected a well-written travelogue; one that highlighted the many excellent sites in the two areas featured. Unfortunately, this article managed to highlight only one thing — that there are still many among the rich who despise their poorer countrymen.

I have nothing against a person “living the life” if he/she can afford it. But to be so callous as to look down on one’s own kababayans just because they make your trip a little less perfect? Copious amounts of Jo Malone perfume can’t mask this pretentious woman’s obvious lack of basic human decency.

    nold, you might want to pick out some choice lines from the article. your description piqued my curiosity, kaso when i clicked on the picture in the hopes of being able to read the words in the article, it was still too blurred.

    Pagnakakabasa ako ng mga ganitong mga article tumataas ang aking vlood freysure at nagigising ang aking pagka-TULPO!!!!

    TULPO pasok!!!

    …the seats were too narrow daw sa economy class which was jampacked by OFW’s… susme naman kahit sa first class pa sya at sya lang mag-isa luluwa pa din ang mata nya sa sikip sa laki nyang yon… napagbintangan pa ang mga kababayan nyang naghihirap para lumutang ang ekonomiya ng bansa para ang mga kagaya nya ay makapagbakasyon sa Boracay at sa Greece…

    isa pa… bat naman sya matakot na malunod ang barkong sasakyan sana nila samatalang walanamang danger sa kanya… ipupusta ko ang aking isang mata kasama na ang aking nagtataasang kilay na di sya lulubog.. lulutang ka bruha!!!! di ka rin kakainin ng pating, takot ang pating sa balyena

    napakalaking babae pero napakaliit ng utak.

  3. what an obnoxious bitch!! in reaction to her rubbish writing:

    1. this whore who looked like she just gorged a whole litson for breakfast needs all the cosmetics she can afford to cover her entire ugly face, and she needs lots because she has a humongous, cellulite-filled, dead skins to fill.
    2. any seat wont fit her because of her fat, rotten ass. she is so bitter she cant afford the business class.
    3. sosyal? you are not. if you think inserting as many sosyal brands in your writing will make you sosyal, you are dead wrong. this only highlights your being a fat-assed braggadocio.
    4. and mentioning names of the elite? that doesnt cut it either. trying to ride on someones coattails now are you? nice try.
    5. give her a tighter bra please! this female budha should realize that the waist line is not the resting place for her apple-sized nipples (imagining it horrified me).
    6. and cleavage is suppose to be a little below the neck… kaya nga plunging neckline di ba. or was it her pusod? napasama lang siguro pagputol nung kumadrona.
    7. and god saved her for not drowning? iha, i am very sure you will stay afloat no matter what. you are underestimating the powers of the huge volume of lard accumulated in your ugly frame.
    8. is your fabulous hat from greece big enough to cover a mother elephant? no? a hippo perhaps? no? do the guests a favor and get a bigger one, quick!

    @Frodo and Fierce and Fabulous… my heart is filled with contentment knowing that this woman’s evil ways have been unmasked for all decent people to see. The dark lord shall verily fall, god-willing!!!

    Let us send our feedback to the Manila Standard editor on the ff URL:
    http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?page=contact_us

    Let’s make Manila Standard Editors/Publisher responsible for publishing the story without giving thought to the consequences of it. OFWs brought home US$ 12 BILLION last year to make the Philippine economy sane. She’s quite oblivious to this simple fact, and the fact that the OFWs do not deserve this kind of media-sponsored slander.

    It’s not enough for her just to resign. Pwede naman sya i-reinstate pag malamig na issue sa December ah. Dapat she should write public apology as her “Mi Ultimo Adios” on Manila Standard and People Asia, plus apology over a press conference and prime-time TV news over ABS-CBN and GMA.

    Also, to make amends, she should establish a foundation seeking welfare for all OFWs, organize a monitoring team to monitor PEOA and OWWA disbursements and program implementation, monitor all embassies extension work, monitor and file charges against those who committed atrocities to OFWs, take to task all illegal recruiters, lastly donate na rin sya marami branded perfumes and LV bags to all OFW na konti or walang maipasalubong pag-uwi…

    MALU FERNANDEZ: TALK OF THE YEAR (BIGLANG SIKAT)

    I’m sure all docu-tv series (Correspondents, Probe, SOCO este…bantay bata) even ariel and maverick ay magkukumahog ma-interview sya or run a story on her, pam-pataas ng rating. but i doubt that these media outfits will be balanced enough para tirahin kapwa nila media person.

    AS A CONSEQUENCE MALU WONT BE ABLE TO:

    1. RIDE THE PLANE
    kawawa naman sya, isang taon syang di makakasakay sa ano mang eroplano domestic or international man, baga magulpi sya kasi her pictures are all over the Internet at lahat ng ating mahal na OFWs ay sumasakay everyday to almost all of domestic and foreign flights…

    2. GO TO THE MALLS
    pano sya pupunta ng MALL? Shangrila Mall, Powerplant, The Block, Podium at iba pang sosyal na Malls? marami ring OFWs ang ipinapasayal mga families nila sa malls na to. mapapadeliver na lang sya ng perfume at LV bags? Or sa tutuban sya at divisoria mamimili with all the disguise…

    3. GO TO THE SOSYAL NA RESTAURANTS, RESTOBAR, EASTWOOD, EMBASSY BAR, at lahat ng sosyal na BARs
    Madali syang makikila ng mga OFW, kamag-anak ng OFW, at mga totoong sosyal at mayayaman na tao na may hinanakit sa mga OFWs

    4. HOTELS, RESORTS, BAHAY BAKASYUNAN, ETC.
    kasi nakapaskil mukha nya sa mga magazine, headline ng dyaryo, at mga OFW na naka check-in sa mga hotels, kawawa sya.

    5. DRIVE-THRU NG MCDO, JOLIBEE, ETC.
    karamihan ng crew sa drive-thru ay former OFWs at may kamag-anak na OFW, madali rin syang makikilala

    6. BELO MEDICAL GROUP, CALAYANS, etc
    magagalit sa kanya mga crew at staff ng mga magagaling na skilled worker na to, baka laitin din sila netong MALU na to. karamihan dito may mga kamag anak na OFW baka di nya alam.

    7. SALON DE MANILA, BASEMENT, FRANK PROVST, BRUNO’S
    most of the crew here may kamag-anak din na OFW

    8. FITNESS FIRST, GOLD’S GYM, ETC
    oh my… kakawawain sya dito ng mga pumupunta sa gym, nabasa na kasi nila lahat ng blogs…

    San kaya sya pwede pumunta, eh halos lahat ng pinoy sa pinas ay may kamag-anak at kakilalang OFWs.

    KAWAWA MALU FERNANDEZ lumiit mundo nya, para syang NABARTOLINA.

    LETS JUST HOPE AYUSIN NYA NA BUHAY NYA!

  8. taroogs ay nagsasabing:

    Bakit kaya parang meron pa rin akong duda sa “pagtapos” ng isyung ito? Sadya ba akong hindi nagtitiwala sa mga taong ito o nadala na ako sa pagmamanipula ng media sa mga mambabasa nila? Ewan… kape nga muna ko.

  9. Ed ay nagsasabing:

    Well unfortunately, nakabalik siya sa work niya… And teh so called “Diva” will be returning to post sa Manila Standard.. This is frustrating! I’m an IT professional and also a proud OFW. Most of my now enraged friends (in Singapore) are really annoyed by this fact that Manila Standard can still hire that so called “Diva”. To Manila Standard… Check your facts there are currently 14000 IT professionals in Singapore alone (I mean IT lang and di pa kasama ang ibang fields). Oh boy! You made a REAL mess.. You know what? If you’re really that elite.. Can you just give the Philippines $12B a year so we the so-called “chipipay” na OFWs in your sight can go home and be with our families?!!

  10. hedgehog ay nagsasabing:

    Whoever you are Miss Malu, no matter how rich you or wherever place you come from you’r just a bitch, arrogant and proud to be in the upper class of the society (if you think you deserve in that class). Next time don’t settle for an economy class…hire or have your own private plane..but am worried you will still be bithcy with your personal flight attendants…..

    keep on writing people. we have not yet achieved our goal to have this fatso be in the place where she belongs….THE SWINE! i think she still works for the publishing company. because this bitch has a strong connection in the industry. yup, she’s well connected. the only thing that’s working for her is the family she was born into. people, let’s fight the tradition of oppression. we have suffered 400 years of that with the spaniards, 4 years with the japs and twenty years of dictatorship and the present one we are undergoing still. let’s not be quiet about this one. not anymore. lets be one to make these kinds of people reap what they have sawn. malu, dear, you have the gut of a bull, the attitude of a gorilla, the behaviour of an overstuffed vulture and the skin of a rhino. and these are natural behaviour and qualities animals possess. i wonder what made you belong to them? im being put to shame to have compared them to you. they are far better than you. you are SO beneath them. pardon to the readers, but its the only way i can picture her. you know why you’re fat? not only because you swallow more than you can chew (literally and figuratively), but also because you thrive on people’s good soul to feed your overly rotten spirit. not soul, because clearly … you dont have one.

    im ofw sobra ka makapangmata.. ang taba mo nmn!.. bitch!

    Taroogs — hindi talaga mapawi ang galit na dulot nitong kababayan nating ‘to 😦
