Malu Fernandez flies economy class…
Edit 08/19/07: I don’t want the whole Malu brouhaha to litter my homepage so I’ll only allocate one entry to her. Click here to read my follow-up entry related to this post but only after you read THIS (as in *this*) entry. Also, I’m *VERY* disturbed by the amount of personal attacks directed towards her not just on my blog but online. I *understand* that a lot of people were offended by her article(s) but if you are gonna attack someone, please don’t resort to petty and immature remarks about her looks, her body size etc. At the end of the day, we’re all going to be thick, fat and obese. Heck, I’m not even forty yet I’m already overweight so there. Also, please refrain from posting her (or anybody else’s) personal information on my site. I’m not taking sides here. One could always express themselves in a civilised manner instead of sensationalising crap and acting all palengkera blah blah blah. Please lang, kacheapan! Last, but not the least, here’s what I have to say about this whole thing.
Meet Malu Fernandez.
Click click click.
I haven’t posted anything "third world" in the longest time because 87% of my readers are non-flips and none of them would have a clue on what I’m on. Also, my numbers drop whenever I post anything Filipiniana and I certainly don’t want that. In any case, I’ll make an exception today because this "thing" is being spread on the internet like wildfire! A friend sent me this hilarious blog entry with an article written by Malu Fernandez. I don’t read third publications, I have no idea who she is and frankly, I don’t care but god damn this woman is hilarious. I want whatever drugs she’s taking y’all!

And here’s my favourite part. I just loooove, looove, LOOOVE how she ranted about her fellow passengers in coach class, not to mention all these Filipino migrant workers who are responsible for keeping our sad economy afloat by pumping billions of dollars every year to our shithole.
That’s not all! Homegirl probably got some serious emotional scars from flying coach she just HAD to write another piece for a newspaper. Take note of her second sentence how she’s trying to ‘cut on some costs’ as if she’s guilty as sin for flying economy.
Is flying economy really THAT horrifying? I confess — I’ve never flown coach on flights longer than 3 hours but even then, I just shut up and try to enjoy the ride. I’m wayy too focused on myself (ie. do I look pretty? is my hair ok? are there remnants of airport lounge canapes stuck between my teeth?) to even notice the things going on around me.
Boys, boys, boys, I’m looking for a good time! Look at the 2nd guy on the right. HOTNESS!
I have no idea how old Malu is but coming from the tone of her article, one could easily assume she’s ‘worldly’ and she’s been around the block, many times and back, and have seen it all but based on what I’ve seen from her article, it sounds like she was NEVER exposed to such things blah blah blah.
But no, she went on and on and on and on how she was "trying to cut some costs and flown economy" yaddi yaddi yadda.
The thing that made me laugh most was the last part of her article — she even went for a SECOND SERVING!! Masochist much?
I believe in you get what you paid for.
Girl, you can whinge and whine all you want but at the end of the day, YOU FLEW COACH. You consciously and voluntarily made the decision to "cut on some costs", be on the SAME BOAT with these "stinky" migrant workers and no amount of Jo Malone can conceal the fact that YOU. SHARED. THE. SAME. RECYCLED. OXYGEN. FOR. NINE. HOURS. EEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWW. NASTY!
I’m all for free speech, whining in public, being pretentious, turning dreams into reality because John Galliano said reality is overrated and whatnot but don’t you think Malu’s pretentious rant would get a little respect if she flew by business or first instead?
Whatever happened to the press taking advantage of freebies that most press people seem to do to be on one of them trips? Whatever happened to press junkets? Whatever happened to x-deals? Flash your press ID and ask for an upgrade. Isn’t that what they all do?
In any case, I think Malu was just being tongue in cheek so there. Tongue-in-cheek is the perfect alibi; heck, that’s what I use ALL the time no wonder I can get away with murder. LOL. Malu… you’re fierce!
BUY ME DINNER. YOU’RE **SOOO** HIGH NET-WORTH!!!
PS. I think flying economy class is ok. Do it ala Mariah Carey. Fly economy class but hire the ENTIRE plane!
