Bitter, Spiteful Snob (UPDATED!!)

I saw this in the blog of my friend, Arnold. He was so incensed by the article that he also sent it to his various e-groups. When finally I was able to read the article in full, I understood him completely. I won’t say anything more and I’ll just let the article speak for itself.

Some choice quotes:

“The duty free shop was overrun with Filipino workers selling cellphones and perfume. Meanwhile, I wanted to slash my wrist at the thought of being trapped in a plane with all of them.”

“…I heaved a sigh, popped my sleeping pills and dozed off to the sound of gum chewing and endless yelling of ‘Hoy! Kamusta ka! Domestic helper ka din ba?’ I thought I had died and God sent me to my very own private hell.”

“This time I had already resigned myself to being trapped like a sardine in a sardine can with all these OFWs smelling like AXE and Charlie cologne while my Jo Malone evaporated into thin air.”

Sabi nga ng Buklod:

Totoy kumilos ka, baligtarin ang tatsulok. Katulad mong mga dukha ang ilagay mo sa tuktok.

Now na, Totoy. Nakakabadtrip eh.

UPDATE:

In an article I was able to read care of Blogger Ailee, this woman defended herself and her abominable article in another article written very recently for her Manila Standard column. She said:

“…Just recently, I wrote a funny article in my magazine column and my friends thought it was hilarious. It was humorous and quite tongue-in-cheek, or at least I thought so, until the magazine got a few e-mails from people who didn’t get the meaning of my acerbic wit. The bottom line was just that I had offended the reader’s socioeconomic background. If any of these people actually read anything thicker then a magazine they would find it very funny. Most people don’t get the fact that they need bitches like me to shake up their world, otherwise their lives would be boring and mediocre. I obviously write for the a certain target audience and if what I write offends you, just stop reading.

Although it may sound elitist to you the fact is this country is built on the foundation of haves, have-nots and wannabes. One group will never get the culture of the other. Although I could mention that it is easier to understand someone who has a lower socioeconomic background that would entail a whole other page and frankly I don’t want to be someone to bridge the gap between socioeconomic classes. I leave that to the politicians in my family who believe they can actually help. Now I seriously ask you, am I being a diva or are people around me just lacking in common sense? Perhaps it’s a little of both!”

  1. PUNYETA!!!

    What nerve! This caricature of a classic matapobre… this… this self-styled “diva” and “fashionista”… this spokeswoman of the “de alta sociedad” IRRITATES me no end… as in spleen-busting irritation!!!!

    What a shameful display of mind-boggling insensitivity towards people (kababayans included) she considers “beneath” her stature. I wonder if she realizes that she’s giving the Filipino elites — who she obviously utterly desires to be counted among — a very… very… VERY BAD name.

    I’m so suuuure she’s not even paying the correct taxes… and she has the gall to belittle the OFWs who are keeping this country afloat?!

    Pretentious. Wannabe. Judas…

    PWEH!

  2. wow. wala ako masabi sa article. the article speaks for itself. the writer, in her pics, would speak also for herself.

    just remembered when i was off to frankfurt for sweden then rome and back, i was hoping i get seated beside a filipino and share stories about life. it didn’t happen that way though, i was seated with a non-filipino. especially on my way back to manila, i felt every bit of envy when all other filipinos in the plane were sincerely chatting the duration of the journey away, while i was trapped with a swedish old man talking about her young filipina girlfriend.

  3. Ugh. Kainis. Pretentious ewan… Buti sana kung maganda, sexy at mukhang alta sociedad, eh mukha naman siyang ewan… Kapal!

    Btw, Hi Jae! Nakita ko ‘to sa friendster bulletin, I couldn’t resist reading the article. Hehehe.

  4. jae: naasar ako dito!! sira na araw ko!ang yabang nya. sinabi pa ang perfume. eh pucha hindi naman mahal yang Jo Malone na yan.Meron din ako nyan!Paker siya!Sampalin kaya natin?Pwde?

  5. Jae, Malu Fernandez has a column for Manila Standard… Worse, she calls herself divalicious… *rolling my eyes*

  6. chrisgel – oo, ang saya kaya makipag-usap sa mga OF sa airplane. Theyre so eager to find out about the Philippines, at the same time, andami nilang mashashare about yung country na pinagtratrabahuhan nila.

    yang – hi! korek, mukha syang dona buding. kaya nga siya nasisikipan sa economy class eh. ang taba nya kasi.

    golda – matagal ko din pinagisipan yang jo malone na yan. haha. di man lang creed. hahaha. pero syempre, were just being bitches. ang point, breathtakingly scandalous ang kanyang snobbery. andami daming naghihirap sa pilipinas. hay. lord.

  7. i read a previous article she wrote for the manila standard. same tone. same bitchy whiny senseless ranting. was totally incensed by that article. this just made me want to write a letter to the editor. or sue for something. anything! ano bang claim to fame ng babaeng to?

  8. Pamura lang ng isa – PUTANG-INA!!!!!!!!!!!! Akala mo kung sino magsalita!!!! Nag-iinit talaga ang ulo sa mga foreigners na grabe makapanlait at mag-generalize ng mga Pilipino, hindi ko talaga pinapalampas, pero ito, na galing sa kapwa Pilipino (pweh), hindi ko talaga to kinaya. Kanina ko pa to binasa pero hanggang ngayon galit pa rin ako. Pwede bang tanggalan ng citizenship ito?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Eto lang masasabi ko: Sige na, [Madam] Malu, slash your wrist na please. Use a steak knife ha. At oo, you really did sound like a pretentious bitch.

  9. eto ang panalo…

    “while I was on the plane (where the seats were so small I had bruises on my leg)…”

    Sino na rito ang nakasakay ng eroplanong sobrang liit ang upuan na nabugbog ang legs nyo? Hehehe… Di ba obvious sa kanya bakit masikip ang upuan at kailangan nyang sisihin ang upuan ng plane? Tubuan ka sana ng magkakambal na pigsa sa kuyukot mo mahadera ka!!!

    Ito nga pala ang link sa isang article nya sa Manila Standard na nakapost sa yehey.com na pwede magcomment…

  10. Shame on this whale of a woman. Hard to accept that she belongs to the same nationality as many of the domestic helpers abroad, innit?
    WELL TOO BAD LADY. Instead of feeling bitter about that, I suggest you peroxide her hair PLATINUM BLOND, get a nose implant and boob job, enroll in a call center training course to acquire a solid American accent, and start eating BAGELS instead of PAN DE SAL for breakfast!
    How low is low huh?? She brought LOW to nEW abyssmal heights!

  11. natatawa lang ako. i just realized, halos lahat ng nagcomment dito (at yung mga pinakagalit na comments actually) ay galing sa mga abugado. dalawa ang galing sa aktibista. ganun ka offensive yung article, cuts across all sectors. universally reprehensible. hehe.

  12. Jae, if you think the replies here are rad, try peeking at the replies posted at the Nomadic Thoughts blog (http://selvo.wordpress.com/), where the owner also published a blog about our favorite “Diva”🙂

  13. Hi, I’m a friend of Yang’s. She sent me a link to this blog post. I wrote my own blog entry as a reaction to the delightful, “divalicious” (*gag, retch, vomit*) Ms. Fernandez’s article, and I took the liberty of including a link to your blog. I hope you don’t mind.🙂

    Here’s the link to my post: http://sillingtonhouse.blogspot.com/2007/08/abominable-snob-woman.html

  14. Oh, and for more comments from more sectors, you can also check http://sillingtonhouse.multiply.com/journal/item/207/The_abominable_snob-woman

  15. hi ailee! sure, i don’t mind. haha, sana nga kumalat nga in cyberspace yang divalicious dabyana na yan.🙂

  16. oi, thicker “then a magazine daw”. hahaha.

    lawyers who commented in this blog (and the blogger herself), please stand up!

  17. Nakakapikon!!! Masyadong feeling!

    Isipin nalang natin na umiiyak sya sa gabi kapag matutulog na sya dahil ang taba-taba nya. And this is the only way for her to feel good about herself, maliitin at insultuhin ang kapwa Pilipino nya.

    BTW, yung link sa Yehey.com parang di nag-wo-work.

  18. acerbic wit my ass. lady you’re way overboard and way overweight. get a lipo pronto before bitching about these hardworking honest ofws. die you fugly bitch.

  19. Thanks for the update. I’ll be mild and say it’s hilarious.

  20. Thank you for the update. I’ll be mild and say that she’s hilarious.

  21. hi jae, i came across your blog from my cousin Ailee’s blog.

    ang masasabi ko sa mga taong ganun – tulad ni Malu – hindi siya makakaraos ng isang araw sa totoong, pang araw-araw na buhay. hindi niya maiintindihan ang “preferential option for the poor” at “live simply, so that others may simply live”. masahol na masahol siya. kapos – sa utak, sa puso. kulang – sa pagmamalasakit at paguunawa sa kanyang kapwang tao. si malu, mukhang maraming ebak nakadikit sa kanyang mata – kaya nagbubulag-bulagan. mapag-balat-kayo sya.

    hindi ko nga maintindihan kung sya ba ay saksakan ng yaman o yabang – o di kaya’y nagpapaka-burgis lang?

    Despicable is not enough to describe this “biatch” Even “biatch” seems too good a word to describe her. She needs a lobotomy. And lots of lessons on compassion. Demujin, I agree, she’s “fugly”😛 Her views are fugly to me.

    i come from an OFW / OFE background – I grew up seeing my dad just 2x a year, he was based abroad all the time. for her to belittle OFW’s is really sickening and disgusting. Nakakasuka.

    Naniniwala naman ako sa karma – what goes around, comes around.

  22. while it may be infuriating, i encourage you people to watch it with the fat woman insults. stick to the ideas, not the physical qualities. and call me weirdo, but i find myself accepting her. though not with respect. just plain recognition that that’s just the way she is. she just doesn’t belong in my universe and i wouldn’t acquaint myself with the likes of her. people are people eh. but for every malu fernandez, i know there are dozens out there with more well-rounded personalities and sensibilities more attuned to the world around them. the best way to deal with a person like this is to ignore them. because they find empowerment in attention, and empowering monsters is a self-defeating exercise. stop forwarding this article, stop seeking her out. let her fade out into the obscure. that’s the best way to help her keep within her undeserved 15 minutes.

  23. while i agree with you that we have to watch it with the physical insults (im guilty of that too..sorry😦 ), i think people should be called on their bigoted sentiments and that some ideas should not be allowed to go uncensured (note i said censure, and not censor).

  24. just a dose of her own medicine… i don’t mind letting people express their disgust with ridicule and insults. she deserves a lot

  25. If she’s so willing and eager to dish it out, she has to be ready to soak it all in as well. I’m fat, but I have no qualms calling her the FAT, BIGOTED BITCH that she is.

  26. […] bitter-spiteful-snob […]

  27. It really doesn’t look like it would take much to demolish her self-esteem.

  28. Jae, I think your initial approach was the best: “I won’t say anything more and I’ll just let the article speak for itself.” Indeed, the article quite effortlessly betrays her stupidity.

  29. she’s fat and she’s not fabulous.
    she’s not even the devil who wears prada.
    she can slash her wrist with all the nerves. . :-p

  30. Hi! I found out about this “thing” she calls her article through email and apparently, a copy of the article was taken from your site. I hope you don’t mind my posting a link to your blog🙂

  31. Buong law school lahat ng libro ko thicker th[a]n (sic) a magazine. Hindi naman ako nagdarahop. Nakatapos naman ako ng pag-aaral. Pero bakit sobra akong nasuka sa article nyang Malu na yan. Hindi isyu dito na mataba sya, (though she only has herself to blame kasi may picture ang article at lahat naman ng nakasakay na ng economy eh hindi naman nagkapasa ang binti), pero ang isyu ay kung paano sya makapanlait at makapanhamak ng mga taong naghahanap-buhay at nakikipagsapalaran sa ibang bansa para lamang maitawid ang pamilya, eh ni hindi mo naman maiintindihan kung saan nya nakuha ang karapatang magsalita ng ganyan. Hindi acerbic wit ang tawag sa klase ng panulat nya, wala man lang akong naamoy na katalinuhan o kalaliman ng pag-iisip sa sinulat nya. Nakakasira lang talaga ng araw, ng linggo.

    At kung hindi ‘papatulan’ o sasagutin ang ang mga pinagsasabi nya, nakakalokang isipin na naniniwala pa rin sya hanggang ngayon sa mga kaibigan nya who allegedly found the article hilarious.

    Nakakapangilabot.

  32. Devil’s Advocate:
    Kung bakla kaya ang nagsulat ng
    article, will the article be hilarious
    kasi di ba, sanay na naman tayo sa panglalait
    at panghahamak ng mga bakla.

  33. […] some bloggers (Jae, Ailee, Arn-Arn, Selvo, Maru) are having fun lambasting an ingrata by the name, Malu Fernandez, a […]

  34. Gari on comment 32: i thought about it and the answer is… no. Homosexuality (or anything else, for that matter) is not an excuse for execrable snobbery.

  35. well ano magagawa mo sa taong frustrated na magpapayat.. ayun na paranoid na ang utak

  36. gari, i agree with jae. i’ve read gay stuff i found disagreeable as well. i think you’re playing into stereotypes, don’t assume all gay people are funny. some can be assholes. like me.😛

    arn-arn, good for you that you have no problem with yourself. but you’re not everyone. a bigger number of insecure, tentative people out there continue to feel ashamed or uncomfortable with themselves because they’re either fat, short, dark-skinned, minority chinese or gay. i’ve been there, and believe me, it sucks. to reinforce the stigma of being fat through the employment of offensive language does not help at all.

  37. Our duty as middle class includes being rightfully outraged over shit written like this. Malu Fernandez’ defense, that she was (quite pathetically) attempting to be humourous reminds me of a joke a student of mine once said about people living in cardboard boxes under the bridge.

    Someone should remind Fernandez of what happened to that woman who said “Let them eat cake.”

  38. the obese lady is trying to make herself feel good by trying to malign other peoples social status, pretty normal actually if your a sight for sore eyes like she is, I myself would slash my own wrist if I look like her by the way…

  39. Sama ng ugali nya…nakakainis pag ganyan ang tao…tapos kala mo naman eh kung sinong maganda kung magsalita..anyway kahit ano pa itsura nya, masama pa rin ugali nya..

  40. Hahaha!!!, ang kapal naman ng face ng balyenang toh!!, I was reading the comment below & YES I totally agree on what the other kababayan’s says here..1st get a nose job then a boob job, actually kelangan mo mag pa over haul kc hindi ka kakayanin ng make over lang in case na di mo nakikita ang sarili mo sa salamin!! sabagay sa ganyang katawan matatakpan mo nga ang salamin..Joe Mallone ba kamo..hmp to namn naka gamit lang ng Imported na perfume feeling nya bumango na sya, excuse me kahit anong pabango pa ang ibuhos mo sa katawan mong manas amoy baboy ka pa rin!! Im pityng our fellow kababayans specially the OFW’s, hindi ko alam kung saang planeta galing ang babaeng toh!! domestics helpers might be using Charlie as their perfume, Im certain that these people work hard without harming others feeling to buy themselves a Charie perfume..sana mamayang gabi mag nilay ka at isipin momg maigi kung tama ba ang pinag sasasabi mo!!!..sorry for my words but I think this lady deserves to be treated like this. I was never brought up like this nakakapikon lang talaga!!

  41. vinnie, it’s not about her being fat… it’s about her being a bigot. Nagkataon lang na mataba siya (no,let me correct that — she is horizontally endowed and enhanced mass-wise) and people being people, immediately saw that as a weapon against her.

    even if she had the perfect body, we would still find something to use against her kasi she’s a bigoted bitch and she deserves to be lambasted.

  42. Yep, I read this article some weeks back and I had to gulp mouthfuls of yogic breaths to calm me… phew! It astounds me how some people’s extreme delusions of greatness only shout to the world the deep sense of worthlessness in their souls.

    In my few trips abroad, I’ve met, talked to and shared a few laughs with Filipinos whether be it on the train figuring how to buy a ticket from the vending machine or running like crazy to catch the flight home with balikbayan boxes. I marvel at their personal sacrifices of leaving family to work abroad and this is for the economic and educational betterment first of their families and then later for themselves.

    My own mother was a migrant worker. As a social worker of DSWD sent to Hong Kong during the outbreak of SARS, she and a medical doctor from DOH assisted abused and distressed OFWs by managing the Filipino Workers Resource Center (FWRC) as mandated by the RA 8042. When I visited her for a week in 2001, I saw how much she worked. During the day, she managed the FWRC administrative duties, attended cases with domestic workers at the Labor Court and provided counseling to OFWs with psychological/emotional trauma. In the evenings, she responded to SOS calls/sms from OFWs and their families in the Philippines through the hotline. May isa pa nga daw OFW na lubog sa utang called her preparing to jump a Hong Kong building.

    I am proud to say that my mother’s hard work and strength of spirit kept her going in those years she was away. Half of her life (30 years) is given in service to the government through DSWD. Not a single cent embezzle, even in the occasions when her salary was delayed “dahil di naasikaso ang budget”. And yes, she along with other OFWs have overweight carry on baggage and go overboard in duty free shops but who cares? She paid for the college education of her 5 children.

    At this point, I won’t even dignify the author by further forwarding this article. It has gone to my trash bin and deleted forever! I don’t see the whole point of her laughable travel notes “From Boracay to Greece”. Recount her travels as she goes around the world insulting Filipino workers? Escape the “summer heat” and deluge in sunscreen? Name drop her friends or whoever in the societal heavens she can find favor with? I know people who have the audacity to speak and act like this woman. The only response they get from me is a killer glare and they fade into oblivion.

    No wonder that this writer with her poor excuse of a travelogue for true journalism holds on to make-up. She feels the need to cover up…

    So sad. Kaawa-awang nilalang na itago natin sa pangalang Malu.

  43. nakakaawang matandang nanay. kala mo kung sino, bakit nga ba hindi ka naglaslas ng pulso? dami mong ginalit. you hink its funny to laugh at your own countries men? yah you are a bitch, a literal bitch you look like a dog.

    asar! kala mo kung sino! magpakamatay ka na kaya. its not funny, you’ve just made one big error and a thousand of angry mob because of what you did. your not filipino for me. walang pilipino na ganyan. trying hard filipino ka! epal! feeling pinay siya. dream on dog!

  44. marami-rami na ring writer na kagaya ng balyenang ito. dapat bigyan ng kapeng barako para kabahan naman ng konti. susme.

  45. Im a businessman and a doctor. I want to practice in this country of ours mainly because i like the people here more than the people in any other country. If she is miserable being here and being with us filipinos, she can LEAVE and good riddance! Then again, the karateka in me forces me to try to understand her. Let us all just put ourselves in her shoes and see that being fat, ugly and undesirable can really make a person bitter and spiteful. Poor lady.😉

  46. I’ve recently been made aware of this situation. I will leave my response in an article within 12 hours. Please read the commentary, as well as MY PROPOSED PLAN REGARDING THIS SHAMEFUL WRITER.

  51. Ngayon lang ipinadala and weblink tungkol kay Malu Fernandez at nakaksuka talaga siya!

    Nakakahiya itong babaeng ito – kung matatawag mo nga siyang babae. Not only has she shown her abysmal ignorance, she has shown us what a Filipino should not be like. Kung wala siyang ginawa kundi pangalandakan lahat ng mga perfume sa balat ng lupa na ginagamit niya at ng kanyang mga amiga, I’ve got news for you – ang perfume ginawa ng mga taga-Europeo para itago ang amoy ng di naliligo! O ano ngayon pigue, mukhang di ka ata naliligo e! Ang mga OFW hirap sa pagtatrabaho para lang makapagpadala at mag remit ng pera sa bansang humihikaos. At ikaw? Pandagdag ka lang ata sa carbon footprint that the world’s leaders are trying to eradicate. I would say that sa travels mo, ang carbon footprint mo is as big as the 747 (ka size mo pa!).

    Hoy loka, if you got down your high horse (which I think is naghihikaos sa laki mo) and struck a conversation with the OFWs you meet on the plane, you will realize that they are really great to talk with. Of course may konting reservation sila which is but natural kasi stranger ang kausap pero you can glean a lot from their experiences. Sa dami ng hirap na dinaanan ng mga ito, meron pa rin silang sense of humour. Kudos ako sa kanila.

    Isa pa, sa kakadakdak niya tungkol sa mga bagay bagay di kaya siya social climber among the alta sociedad? hhmmmm…..food for thought.

  52. […] Pero hind lang ako na naha-high blood sa mga isinulat ni Malu. Si Selvo ng Nomadic Thoughts ay tumaas din ang presyon ng dugo, at ganoon din siguro sina Schumey, Pedestrian Observer, Sparks, at Jae. […]

  67. Just in my office, as an email pass to me, it destroys my early morning.. We know she belongs tothe alta sociedad ng Pilipinas… or say some, she is not in that crowd… and why she save her money for that trip,

    She just want ot be in the headlines, fine that here world.. but she will keep in her mind that OFW will cursed her until her last breath.

    Yes I am an OFW, an executive of in one of worlds branded oil companies, and use to travel then world on company business trip many times every form all sort of the world, from Los Angeles via amsterdam, or from amsterdam to Manila. but I aprreciate my fellow OFW if i’m on my emirates flight, some time offer rides to othe fellow filipina domestic helper.

    She is so lucky that she take that hub, what else if she take the manila narita flite and mistaken as a japayuki a common word used for filipina women works in japan, my apology of using this worlds..

    but stil they are also OFW who spare their live to earn for a living rabther to live in the alta sociedad ng manila where often meet saying Hi and hello and when back turn to each other, live gossips for them.

  68. You know what… I think this so-called-socialite-pig doesn’t realize that it doesn’t take being an OFW to actually feel offended by her comments.

    I am not an OFW but I was appalled by her “acerbic wit”! I would’ve understood it more if it came from someone who wasn’t pinoy…

    Granted she writes for a particular “audience”… but to recklessly write about her sentiments as she sits beside Filipino Workers on a plane wearing AXE and Charlie cologne is likely to be picked up by other non-pinoy readers… and what will THAT say about us Pinoys?! That our overseas workers stink of god knows what and that they don’t know how to keep quiet on a flight? That these OFWs are rowdy and incapable of discipline?!

    What the f…!

    It’s not a matter of lack of common sense on the average reader that has caused this uproar… because common sense tells us that no matter how “witty” your sense of humor may be (as you so very much claim), it only reinforces what negative image we already have, which we are so very much trying to erase from the international eye.

    Instead of just apologizing… you took a different course and thought it best to simply justify your actions?!

    Ms. Piggy errr… Ms. Fernandez, we don’t need bitches like you to “shake up our world”… don’t feel compelled to open our eyes!

    So much for “responsible writing”… go ahead… hold on to your make-up, your hairdo, your bankbook, your Addidas all-terrain, your Havs, and all your accessories! Cause it’ll be the only true friends you’ll ever have.

    And oh… go ahead… “PICK A COUNTRY” again! And this time, stay the f*** away from us permanently. Cause you and your wit ain’t wanted nor needed here by any of us. Good riddance.

  69. shame on her!

    the editor of Manila Standard trying to do some damage control by disclaiming Malu as part of their writer but on his second comment on my blog he accept that Malu was really their writer but only on sundays. No wonder… editor doesnt know their writers. tsk tsk

    Ang OFW at Malu Fernandez isang Elitistang manunulat!
    Fire Malu Fernandez, Boycott Manila Standard, and People Asia Magazine

  70. my blogs is here – http://moslemenjr.macarambon.com/

  71. That’s why we STOPPED reading her articles. We just skipped them, hoping we would be able to read something sensible from other articles.

    Her article was really offensive to FILIPINOS whose economy was survived by, yes, the same OFWs she has been berating! How much tax is she paying anyway?

  72. Real elitists do not proclaim their elitism.

    Fake elitists do- and bring other people that simply just “don’t measure up to their standards” down in the process.

    BTW, her mention of brand names is pathetic. Who cares about what she wears and buys, anyway?

    EXACTLY.

    Nobody.

  73. HOW I WISH WE COULD COME UP WITH A MORE DRASTIC MOVE THAT WOULD SHAKE THE WORLD OF THIS 300 POUND MAMMAL..COZ TO SEE HER FIRED FROM MANILA STANDARD IS NEAR TO IMPOSSIBLE…EVERY ARTICLE IS SCRUTINIZED AND EDITED BY THE EDITOR/S…AND MALOU’S PIECE ,UNFORTUNATELY ,WITH ALL OUR PROTESTATIONS , PASSED AND MADE IT TO THE NEWSPAPER STANDS…THAT MEANS , SHE GOT ALL THE BLESSINGS FROM HER BOSS FOR THE PUBLICATION OF HER TRASH ARTICLE…WITH MALOU’s SMILE STRETCHING FROM EAR TO EAR , SHE BRAGS TO HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT FINALLY , SHE HAD AN ARTICLE SOON TO COME OUT FILLED WITH ASCERBIC WIT , AS SHE CALLS…AND HER BOSS ???…HE JUST GAVE MALOU A CONGRATULATORY NOTE WITH A PAT IN THE BACK SAYING , ” DON’T WORRY ABOUT THESE OFW’s…INGGIT LANG YAN SILA SAYO..”…

    BOYCOTT THE MANILA STANDARD..??..THEY’RE NOT DOING WELL IN THE STANDS COMPARED TO M.BULLETTIN , PHIL DAILY INQUIRER AND PHIL STAR…THEY WOULDN’T CARE ABOUT THE BOYCOTT…THEY WON’T GIVE A DAMN…COZ ALL THEY CARE ABOUT ARE >>> “THE ADVERTISERS” , THEIR LONG TIME BUSINESS PARTNERS…AND THAT IS WHERE THE MONEY IS…NOT FROM THE STANDS…

    THE HARD TRUTH FOR NOW , MALOU BEAT US BLACK AND BLUE….WE WE’RE ALL KNOCKED DOWN AND WE HAVEN’T STOOD UP YET TO FIGHT BACK THIS GIANT HIPO…

    WHILE MALOU IS THINKING AGAIN FOR ROUND TWO , EQUIPPED WITH HER USUAL WEAPON , “ASCERBIC WIT” AND HER MAGIC PEN TO WRITE ANOTHER DEMEANING ARTICLE AGAINST US…THIS TIME , IT WILL COME MORE VISCIOUS AND DEADLIER THAN WE COULD IMAGINE…

    MALOU THINKS SHE’S “INVINCIBLE AND UNTOUCHABLE” BECAUSE OF HER POLITICAL CLOUT…THAT’S WHY SHE’S HAVING A GOOD TIME DOING WHAT SHE KNOWS BEST >>>> BELITTLING US….

  74. Look at that, her father taught medicine in UP. All she could teach is fashion.

    If she taught there not for the salary, why is she making a fuss out of it?

    If she thinks she is elite, why isn’t she writing in for large media organizations? Why is she in “mediocre” national daily like Manila Standard? It’s not even the best or number newspaper in this “God-forsaken” (according to her) country.

  75. Just saw on TV Patrol that she apologized. And she resigned from People Asia and Manila Standard. Resigned??? More like FIRED! LITSUNIN ang Sus scroffa na yan!

  76. sino ba talaga siya? gano ba siya kayaman? kasi parang sobrang well-off.. babuy eh..

  77. Dear Offended Filipinos,

    What’s wrong with you? Can’t you take a pathetic joke coming from a fat, ugly, pathetic female. Didn’t you get it? This is a wannabe peasant who has been hating mankind for the unfortunate looks and appearance nature has given her. She probably fantasizes about being a celebrity but because of her bovine shape nobody pays attention to her. And someone must pay! Look at how she namedrops people that nobody ever heard of. Then she has to mention a friend (Ron) who accompanied her in Greece insinuating they were “two for the road” lovers. I wonder how fat and ugly Ron is. Any self respecting guy would not want to be seen publicly with someone as unappealing as this Fernandez is. I know I won’t. Hell, I would not be caught dead next to her. And the name brands she namedropped. Well, isn’t she being a little too provincial. Jo Malone? Louis Vuitton? She probably bought them at the Green Hills Mall, if not Divisoria. Heck, those items she named. I never heard any lady of note in media or elsewhere mention them. See, she invites attention to people around her and her accessories because she wants to deflect their attention to her plain personality. Plain, my ass. She is downright ugly. Which is the worse offense a woman can ever commit.
    So let us just leave her be and stop praying or asking for her destruction. She has already been destroyed a long time ago. So she now lives in a fantasy world avoiding mosquitoes, refusing to wear bathing suits, complaining about this and that. Let me ask you – if you were that fat would you degrade yourself further by wearing a bathing suit? Assuming something would fit, of course. And wouldn’t you be paralyzed with fear of insects knowing you would be offering them a a large, wide, obese, plump, squat, portly, fat, ugly target?
    Heck, you filipinos. You were known for your splendid sense of humor. So how can you take this pig seriously? Humor her. Tell her you know of her “fame” and “beauty”. And apologize for not covering your nose when she sat near you. Don’t ever tell her if was her own stink she was smelling. She just won’t admit it. Kawawa naman. You guys should probably chip in and give her an inflatable doll. Para naman me kalaro. Show her that even “miserable domestics” have enough charity in their hearts to understand someone as sad as her. You see Ron (her friend) lives in the States just to be away from her.
    OK let me know what you think of my suggestions.

  78. well, malou, I pity you.. u are such a disgrace to humanity.. wat do you think of yourself?

    I thought, you, as a columnist, is intelligent enough and responsible enough for every action you will take.,and yet.sobra naman yatang press freedom ang pinakita mo.. hindi ka puedeng ihanay kina celine lopez of phil. star and tim yap of phil. daily inquirer..ur a nonsense columnist. and industry doesnt need a person like you..

    to all OFW, chin-up, ang ganitong klase ng tao ay walang level na dapat kalagyan..to hell with her money and connection,

    Again last to malou, kung ano ang ugaling pinakita mo eh nagrereflect sa kung pano ka pinalaki ng magulang mo..

    I really pity you..as well as to your parents..

  79. sa sobrang taba ng lola mo di sya nag-kasya sa emirate seat (hahahaha!) nakaka-awa sya! ang arte nya pabango ko lang sa cr ko ang jo malone nya!

  80. After everything is all said and printed about this controversial story, this self-proclaimed diva’s excrement still stinks.

    Therefore, she is not so special after all.

  81. hey malu…..go back to china you MONKEY/PIG!!hehehe.Do you know what a mirror is?

  82. “As the recent recipient and target of death threats” said she in her apology letter

    that is the most humorous thing Ive ever read
    finally she has the “acerbic wits” talent in her

    “I am Sorry”
    I’ve already watched that on national (rather worldwide) TV
    have some originality as someone wrote it might be another blogger saving and cleaning her ass

    and do remember the name folks boycott everything or anything that has to do with her let her crawl and feel the “socioeconomic background”

  83. Malu Babe/boy,

    Hahaha! Jo Malone must given you a huge amount for advertising. Nakakatakot gamitin ang perfume na yan kasi nagiging oink! oink! ang resulta.
    How dare you degrade OFWs well in fact they more dignified than you. You are such a very senseless and insentive fat lady. I would rather use Charlie cologne than use JO Malone because I realized that it will make someone callous and conceited pig. Ang ganda mo sa picture! Ang sarap mo nguyain kasi paborito ko ang lechon madalang yan dito sa Dubai..
    Ano ba yung “Acerbic Wit”? Ngayon ko lang narinig yan. Yon ba yung nakita ko sa circus na sumirko sirko at tinatarget ng kutsilyo habang kumakain ng mansanas?.Pasenya ka na ha? kasi OFWs lng kami na may prinsipyo at hindi nananakit ng damdamin ng kapwa. Ang kaya lang naming saktan ay ang damdamin ng isang kulugo na kagaya mo. OH BABE/BOY YOU’RE SUCH A BIG JOKE FOR US ALL! HAHAHA! BTW, GAANO BA KALAKI ANG BINTI MO AT HINDI KUMASYA SA UPUAN NG EMIRATES?

  84. SPECIAL THANKS TO THOSE OFW’s WHO BROUGHT THE MATTER TO ABS CBN (DUBAI OFFICE) AND HAD IT SHOWN ON TV…..SUMIKAT DIN KAYO AT NAKITA NAMIN BEAUTY NYO SA TV PATROL…YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOO….MABUHAY PO KAYO….!!!!

  85. Nothing can be more atrocious. You made a mistake “one too many”. How does it feel right now to be living your own “private hell”?
    You are one of the people who dig their own graves.
    SARACEN-Dubai

  86. Oh my God!!!!! What a nerve. This Malu – mammal deserves an extreme make over. Yong tuklapin lahat ng meron siya most especially her heart. Kasi sementado with matching steels as valves. How dare na lait laitin ang modern heroes ng ating bansa. She’s a hyprocrite to the hilt. She wants to be famous this way by belittling OFW’s. Good riddance to this kind of vicious animal. She’s not human.

    Boycott everything she will write or everything she will do in the future. Whatever business she’ll be in or she’s associated with. We will give her back the treatment she deserves for having an ascerbic wit!!!! (maybe witch)

    U f….ng b…h!!!!!! U dont deserve our time but we cannot take this kind of bullshit from u.

    I am just too angry. Cannot express where I really want her go. Just hoping she’ll disappear to oblivion. Second thoughts, too many good people (OFW’s) will gonna miss u.

  87. http://www.geocities.com/fernandez_malu/

  88. Obviously, something is terribly wrong with this Malu creature.
    Well, there’s her looks, to begin with, but something more sinister is lurking inside her well-fed body. Something that must not be allowed to mutate. Let us get rid of this scourge once & for all. We’ll be doing humanity a great service. GET LOST, MALU F…!

  89. YIKES!!! MUKHA SIANG LITSON PERO KUNG MAKA-ALIPUSTA! KADIRI! JO MALONE KAMO? DIOS KO DAY! BAKIT HINDI MAN LANG HERMES KAYA?MAS MAHAL YATA ANG HERMES KAYSA YANG JO MALONE NA YAN…
