Obsession du Jour: Malu Fernandez

Obsession du Jour: Malu Fernandez

I’m officially obsessed. Malu Fernandez is the new Velvet d’Amour y’all! She apparently got loads of flak a few months back due to that magazine article she wrote so she wrote this little apology back in July.

malu fernandez

Priceless! Only in the third world, my dear readers, only in the third world.

PS. I love her fierce attitude. We need clowns like her (and me) to make the world a better place.
PPSS. It’s FrederiC Fekkai, with the c and without the k. Oh snap!

  1. Malu Fernandez is not even entertaining. If she wants to write about “her world and her life”, maybe she should just go and do so in a PERSONAL blog. Funny she speaks about simple minded people when she’s one herself. Hey! Takes one to know one. And the whole flying coach issue, for fucks sakes, she chose to fly coach. This bitch should deal with it! She’s trying so hard to be like Carrie of SATC but she’s failing and irritating people… BIG (pun intended) time. Maybe she should try to lose weight first instead of bitching?!? She’s so UTTERLY pretentious.

  2. she’s a fat bitch! excuse me but she’s no Perez Hilton or Michael K to begin with. To mock or belittle people who are trying to make a decent living on meager wages isn’t funny or witty at all and please she looks like Ronald McDonald with all that 10 lbs of makeup on her face.

  3. acerbic wit? what wit? ang babaw naman ng kaligayahan ng friends niya if they found that article hilarious.

  4. That beast is drunk with power, or vidodin.
    Either way, if she was soo “OMG i’m such a diva”, why the hell did she fly coach? Haller, if you were really fabulous, you wouldn’t need to cut down costs. Budgeting is for peasants.

    I thought her article was amusing enough. She might be a pretentious fat bitch but surely it’s better than being a pretentious skinny bitch. lol

  7. gambler

    I’m all for Malu’s free speech, even if it offends other people – as long as she can take the same amount of damage. So here goes: The fact is, she’s FAT and CHEAP. Im willing to bet if she was as thin as bryanboy, people will cut her some slack. I pity her seatmate in coach.

  9. “If any of these people read anything thicker then a magazine”
    OMG bitch its “THAN”.. she should not be talking about language skills.. quite ironic.. maybe she will blame that on her “wit” as well.
    AND no I’m not being a grammar queen, I’m assuming she works for a publication, if she is being published there is NO excuse for bad grammar, its not a blog. period.

  10. FattyMcflurry

    I read the original article and it mentions about her hating going to the beach. Man, if I was that fat and ugly I’d hate to go to the beach as well, no swimsuit style will ever make her look decent. On second thought, if I was that pasty, I’ll probably get some sun, but not without losing weight first. and if you will, forgive me for my acerbic wit and twisted sense of humor!

  11. Vonn Einstein

    Wow, fat girl thinks she’s funny. I get tongue in cheek but she’s not really original. I don’t dig the main cabin either and have not ridden it in years but witty she is not. Maybe the politicians in her family can all chip in for her gym membership and some zone delivery.

  12. eww. her writing is generic at best. tongue in cheek perhaps, but that doesn’t mean she should be offensive, pompous, and inflated. speaking of inflated, what a fucking cow. obese wannabe.

  13. not only did she insult the “culture of the other” but she forgot that this culture is part of her identity. it’s a shame how some people like her are too quick to judge others who can only afford coach and axe.
    the truth of the matter is, she clearly hates herself. she hates how she is being represented by these hardworking people. she is ashamed of her ethnicity, of her background that it is utterly disgusting to witness her pathetic efforts to elevate and separate her status from them. she looks and smells them and hates that these people represent her, and projecting her “tongue-in-cheek” criticism is a pathetic excuse in denying her insecurities and seeing her reflection on them.
    she is the reason why philippines is more or less unprogressive compared to other third world countries out there. she is the reason why the barrier among class is shamelessly imposed even after the progress and social development that other societies have achieved.
    shame on you malu fernandez, shame on you. you and your pretentious kind are what’s wrong in this country.

  14. Fat Lier

    FAT LOSER! SUCH A LIAR! You hate going to the beach because you are morbidly obese! No suimsuit style will make you look decent! It’s not the mosquitos, we all know mosquitos love biting on pigs because they are fat and dirty! LIAR! Bryanboy, get her on a crash diet, quick!

  15. Malu Baboy Ramo Fernandez

    Fyi, ang maitim ang singit na baboy ramong social climber na ito ay putting the word “pretentious” to shame! She’s more than that! Binaboy niya at binastos ang contributions ng mga Filipino Workers abroad. Nasusuka siya na tumabi sa kanila sa eroplano! Ang kapal niya! Sino Siya? How much is her net worth? Royalty ba siya? Ang pagkakaalam ko, ang Pilipinas ay isang republic. hindi Monarchy. Pwede ba yung mga “old rich old rich” talk na yan ay tigilan. She’s not even old rich! And what is old rich in the Philippines mean anyway? Yung mga “old rich” kuno na mga yan ay mga purita rin 100 years ago. I repeat they were poor 100 years ago. Pwe! The “old rich” kuno in the Philippines do not even level to the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, Kennedys of the U.S. !!!! Pwede ba. Malu Fernandez bruha ka, ang ilusyon mo day, nakakasuka! I started this thread para lahat ng baho nitong babai na ito ay mailabas! I’ll start it: (pls post here her email address, cellphone number, address at home)
    1. She is part owner of the LUSCIOUS boutique. Please boycott this. Murahin nyo ang boutique na to. Babuyin nyo!
    2. As a backgrounder, Ms Fernandez has struggled with a weight problem since birth. She has tried everything. Obviously unsuccessful, Malu, single fortysomething, has just resorted to being a bitch to get noticed.

  16. Acerbic wit? Please.
    I feel terrible for the people who associate themselves with this woman. It shows that they are nothing but elitist pretentious twats.

  17. Guys read the entire article and see for yourself! This bitch is so FAT because she loves eating food laced with TRANSFAT at the middle class food chain Ruby Tuesdays! She loves her ADIDAS shoes and will settle for HOLIDAY INN? and you call your self belonging in the upper class? WOW! Such LOW standards! Hoey rich people don’t even waste time thinking about saving on a travel expense, it’s all about convenience BITCH!

  18. No wonder Manila Standard is called Manila Sub-standard. Read this article:
    http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?page=goodLife2_april16_2007
    Malu Fernandez is such a pretentious bitch she can’t even spell the names right.
    “Anick Goutal” = it should be Annick Goutal
    “Mark Jacobs” = it should be Marc Jacobs
    Grabe siya mang name drop ha!
    “my good buddy and fellow fashionista Kitty Go”
    “my BFF (best friend forever) and oldest friend Samantha Eduque”
    “my bubbly and perky friend Rajo Laurel”
    “my bachelor buddy Christopher Lim”
    “my favorite nephew Miguel Zubiri”
    (HELLO! GIO BY ARMANI AND ESTEE LAUDER PLEASURES? DIBA DUTY FREE SCENTS YAN?)
    “my fabulous and beautiful and fellow fashionista buddy and Mega Magazine’s secret weapon Carla Sibal”
    “Party buddy Pepper Teehankee”
    “my favorite Sea Princess Tessa Prieto Valdes”
    Can you say namedropper?
    oo na. Everyone is your favorite, buddy, favorite buddy, fellow fashionista and friend.

  20. bitch deflate your ego! you fat arse! ang yabang mo! kala mu kung sino ka makapanglait
    guess what fatsy patsy! you suck!
    arrrghhh…..

  21. buti nga kay malu. ang tawag diyan karma. akala mo kasi kung cnong mayaman eh matapobre pala siya. hayan tuloy, lahat ng pinoy sa internet galit sa kanya.
    i hope this is a lesson for others to learn from. especially sa mga tao na nasa society pages.

  22. Linda H

    what a piece of work that pretentious fat shit.
    ruby tuesday is where ordinary people eat and holiday inn is a boring chain of motels. i don’t see the reason why this cow would even brag about it.

  23. Who is this girl Malu Fernandez who is the subject of campaign by bloggers.?
    Aside from writing in the Manila Standard publication and magazines..what I know is that she used to sell cosmetic products for the face.
    Her family is really Buena Familia from the uppity side of Forbes Park. Her father is the well known dermatologist Dr. Manuel C. Fernandez who is one of the founders of Makati Medical centre and of the Philippine Dermatological Society. Her father belongs to the old school dermatologists not like the Vicky Belo’s of present time.

  24. “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!”
    ANG KAPAL NG MUKHA MO KUMAG KA!

  25. shiny shiny

    I find it comical how she pimps Jo Malone to death when we use it to spray on our bedsheets and linens.

  26. malu fernandez brags to all her friends she slept with ricky recto sick. she insults all her friends thats why they are all saying that she deserves all of the insults shes getting. she already had an operation to lose weight and she is still fat! thats her karma in life and by the way her business is not her money she has none its all her partners.

  27. Malu – remember this: kung mayaman ka, katangahan ang maging pangit.
    Eh, di ba mayaman ka (at least sabi mo)? Bakit hindi ka magpaayos ng ilong ang magpa-korte ng katawan. Perhaps it is your snout/nose that is causing sensitivity to smell. Axe and the other ‘pang-masa’ cologne is not the problem – it is your attitude. Look how your bloated attitude reflects physically. Fat, offensive, budget-conscious bitch!

  28. john dussel

    god knows whats best for a worst behavior of a people. How much nore if she is so mestiza, with that kind of looks, shes more than a crap….
    a person came from the buena familia will not act like that… if she claim taht she is in the alta sociedad, the she has personality disorder… she must be a thesis of every nursing student in physciatric nursing….
    pitty you girl, our household worker is much beautiful than you…

  29. Sigh. I kinda knew this day might come for malu. So sad. So pathetic. And so not surprising.
    I really hope she chokes on her next meal of patatim for what she said about the OFWs.
    In fairness to her, she already lost a shitload of weight. Guess it didn’t help alleviate the insecurities.
    And the Marriot? That is so not fabulous.

  30. First of all i am deeply offended by her statements, being a son of an OFW, this is is not something that i should be silent about. The thought of her comments make me think if she was on drugs when she wrote the article, or otherwise she is just a plain bigot. I don’t know where in point of status Ms. Fernandez think she is, but Ma’m… we all eat and sh*t at the end of the day. I was raised by money coming from hard labor that had to be sought overseas, that gave us more than enough but tore our family apart… thinking of my dad’s effort working a thousand miles away and extra few hours a day just to give us the best, saddens me that some people would see as a “wrist slashing” sight. I just hope that someday you’ll realize the meaning of hard labor.
    I challenge her IQ, for any intelligent being will consider the repercussions if such remarks.
    I challenge her capacity to work the way our beloved OFW’s do.
    I challenge her faith, if she has enough respect for our creator.
    I challenge her as being she could create wonders in this world. ( As she wrote as if she is above all of us. )
    and finally
    I challenge her as a Filipino, to show herself up and make the necessary apologies to all she has offended.
    and by the way go FCUK yourself Malu!

  31. malu_oink

    People, control yourself.
    Give a little respect for this oversized spinster. hehehe.
    we know she’s fat and old and single, but she’s just fat and old and single.
    stoning her won’t change a thing.
    she’ll remain fat, old and single.

  32. Curious Chap

    Honestly, all these comments are giving Malu wet dreams she’s been pining for.
    But I just want to know what her favorite nephew, Senator Miguel Zubiri, has to say about her article?

  33. Smells like new rich to me. To flaunt her money like that shows he’s got poor taste and bad breeding.

  34. Smells like new rich to me. To flaunt her money like that shows he’s got poor taste and bad breeding.

  35. I feel sad for Malu. Her so-called rich life didn’t give her the chance to be TRULY educated. She would have made it even bigger in this world (no pun intended), if she had become of the very few socially-aware rich people.
    Just goes to show.. Money can’t buy you brains. But yeah, who needs brains when you’ve got truckloads of money to spend on superficial things?
    SAD.

    Malu Fernandez’ recent post
    “I am humbled by the vehement and heated response provoked by my article entitled ‘From Boracay to Greece!’ which came out in the June 2007 issue of People Asia. To say that this article was not meant to malign, hurt or express prejudice against the OFWs now sounds hollow after reading through all the blogs from Filipinos all over the world. I am deeply apologetic for my insensitivity and the offensive manner in which this article was written, I hear you all and I am properly rebuked. It was truly not my intention to malign hurt or express prejudice against OFWs.
    As the recent recipient and target of death threats, hate blogs, and deeply personal insults, I now truly understand the insidiousness of discrimination and prejudice disguised as humor. Our society is bound together by human chains of kindness and decency. I have failed to observe this and I am now reaping the consequences of my actions. It is my fervent hope that the lessons that Ive learned are not lost on all those who through anonymous blogs, engaged in bigotry, discrimination, and hatred ( against overweight individuals , for example )
    I take full responsibility for my actions and my friends and family have nothing to do with this. To date I have submitted my resignation letters to both the Manila Standard and People Asia, on that note may this matter be laid to rest. ”

    Malu is not an elitist pig; she is simply a pig. Malu’s biggest mistake was she didn’t act on her thought (” I wanted to slash my wrists at the thought of being trapped in a plane with all of them “). Had she done so, this wouldn’t have come out.
    She also whined about how the seats were too small that she had bruises on her legs. She shouldn’t blame the seats or the economy class. If her legs weren’t as fat as elephant trunks, she wouldn’t have a problem.
    She also went on to saying “This time I had already resigned myself to being trapped like a sardine in a sardine can with all these OFWs smelling of AXE and Charlie cologne while my Jo Malone evaporated into thin air.” That is the lamest and sorriest excuse of a piss ant like her. The real reason why her Jo Malone perfume evaporated into thin air was because she’s so fat that her LARD was dripping all over her skin, and the stink of it empowered her perfume.
    I agree with Malu’s claim that she writes for a certain target audience. One wonders what kind of audience she’s got. I also agree with her that our country is built on the foundation of haves, have-nots, and wannabes. She certainly fall to the wannabes category. A wannabe diva that can’t.. perhaps only in her lard like wettest dreams. People around you (those who passionately bashed you) do not lack common sense. You lack common decency and respect. It is hurtful enough when a foreigner insult us filipinos, but it most hurtful if a fellow filipino puts down its own people.
    As much as she would like to think that she is an intellect… she is not. She is just an ignorant spoiled little brat who is so insecure of herself. She do not hate going to the beach. She hates the fact that she cannot wear something skimpy because her FALAFEL would be all over the place!
    The freud and Jung in me tells me that this Malu suffers from acute depression, which explains her exhorbitant amount of insecurity. It is, however, understandable. If you carry 17 kilograms of make up with you all the time, and you are just a tad bit heavier than a semi-truck, it would really make you a bitch. And yes, we need bitches like you, Malu. Can you be my bitch?
    One last note to Malu (I can only hope that she gets to read this, or one of her “target audience”), I hope that you find this humorous and quite tongue-in-cheek.

    and before we move on …
    THE MALU FERNANDEZ PERFUME EXPERIMENT
    I’ve done this with my friends on the suspicion that NOT A LOT of people ACTUALLY know the scent of BOTH Charlie cologne and Axe Deo cologne. I know Axe Deo cologne but Charlie…

  43. Ikaw na BEHO,BUMALIK ka sa pinangalinggan mo,at kainin mo ang KULANGOT mo!hehehe.masyado kang th,NAKAKITA ka na ba ng SALAMIN…sa hitsura mong yan,,DISGUSTING FAT ANIMAL.heheh..You wouldn’t know anything about “CULTURE” if it bit you on your FAT ASS.hehehe

  44. Huygens

    heh. I just laughed at the tongue-in-cheek and acerbic (more like acidic) wit part. More like tactless sadistic pseudo-elitist humor at the expense of people’s feelings. I feel sorry for your alma mater and I pity the poor men who’ve fallen and will fall for her charm… or rather absence of it.
    She reminds me of two kinds villians in fiction: the elitists whom Crisostomo Ibarra fought and the Death Eaters who relish at torturing people who they saw were not in the same station in life as they were.

  45. Hmm.. di kaya nagpakamatay na sya sa ngayon sa sobrang dami ng nang iinsulto sa kanya…???

  46. i'm fat but i'm kind

    Question? why does she know the smell of axe and charlie? cguro ginagamit nya rin yon noh? or… maaaring nabanguhan nya at tinanungan nya yung katabi nya..

  47. ALam ko di maganda manlait nang kapwa, but just this once..gusto kong gawin. Ang pangit kasi tignan na lalaitin mo ang mga OFW e Filipino ka din naman. Ok lang magreklamo ka sa mga escapades mo kung nasa 1st world country ka at di maganda naging experience mo. It’s true na it’s a free country & you can say whatever you want to say, but please look first inside you before you criticize people who are working so hard overseas to earn money for their families. Nang nabasa ko article mo, nasabi ko sa sarili ko na “sino ba tong malu fernandez na to? sobrang conceited, first time ba nya makarating dito sa Pinas?”
    Alam mo,mas ok pa kung i-criticize mo na lang ang mga politiko na gumagawa nang mali kesa ang mga OFW na nakakatulong sa maraming tao at sa Pilipinas…Malu, i don’t know you personally but your article speaks so much already of what kind of a person you are. I was hurt because my dad is an OFW for almost half of his life, & has managed to send us all in very good schools. My sister is an OFW as well & now she can provide a better life for her own family. Lastly, my husband is also an OFW & it’s really painful for me to raise our son alone. Be sensitive of other’s feelings…You don’t know what “LIFE” is all about…
    Keri lang ciguro kung prettiness ka, sexy & all para mamintas nang mamintas to death! kaya lang SABLAY din physical attributes mo lalo na UGALI mo..kay my unsolicited advise – “BE KIND-HEARTED, SENSITIVE OF OTHER’S FEELINGS, & MOST OF ALL READ GOD’S WORDS para naman maging healthy ka not only in the spiritual aspect pati na rin ang iyong MENTAL & EMOTIONAL aspect!!!
    GOD BLESS YOU…

    You are full of trash bitch, We have been dignity stripped and harmfuly degraded by our corrupt country people. Huwag ka naman garapal na katulad nila. If I were you sila ang tirahin mo sa column mo. We will definitely give a big time honor.

  51. What’s all the fuss about this Malu Fernandez? The problem with all of you poor OFWs out there is you can’t appreciate or forgive a woman of extinction, I mean distinction, bathed in signature scents from London’s Jo Malone.
    There is one cologne line that was actually made for her, and her alone. It is a woody scent called WILD PIG AND ASSES (Horrors! I misspelled WILD FIG & CASSIS, sorry) It is described as WART AND FATTY (Jeez! that was supposed to be WARM AND FRUITY,sorry again).
    Wow, she probably got to apologize only after the death threats and insults from poor and abused OFWs spilled over to her family. Why don’t you post lots of pictures of this woman so that all OFWs and their dependents can recognize her instantly on any street of this world.

  52. Huygens

    sus, buti pa nga gumagamit pa sila ng axe and charlie e. If you’ve really been in Dubai then the word “anghit” will take on a totally new meaning which is a matter of fainting or surviving the day. Be grateful Filipinos are not like that lmao.

  53. butchok

    Magpalit ka na ng pangalan. Pwedeng Mola Fernandez, Wow Mali Fernandez, bahala ka,

  54. the reason why malu fernandez hate going to beaches is that she cant wear swimsuit! she’s just too insecure! PERIOD!

  55. As I read most of your comments and the other blogs, it seems there are two sides, the ones who sides with malu and the other who hates malu. The ones who are trying to find her views “funny” and the other “sic”. I feel this is a battle between the “haves” and “have nots”, the poor “OFW’s” and the rich “SOB’s”. I think at the end of our days, GOD will have his final say, “Blessed are the poor and It is easier for a camel to enter the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Heaven.” AMEN

    charlie? yun ba yung revlon? kasi gumamit din ako nun nung college hehehehe.
    you don’t have to be a journ major to know the 411 of making a travelogue. and if you were a journ major and you came up with that article, my prof would tell you it’s “salsal” – an old school journ term for a poorly-written article.
    being a daughter of a former ofw (who was sent home because he suffered from anaphylaxis caused by sandstorm in middle east) and being an ofw in a few, i flew off the handle when i got a twit of your article. but since you apologized i think it’s about time to get a move on. i just hope that you are sincere and that nobody forced you to draft your letter of apology. i hope that you made it because you realized that your definition of an acerbic wit was definitely out of this world. and that you are not apologizing for the fear of jeopardizing your family’s safety.
    next time you feel like ranting and can’t contain it,make a blog and make it exclusive to your target audience. make it unpublished.
    i would also like to recommend for you to see a shrink. there’s a mood clinic in st.luke’s. i don’t know if your disorder (defense mechanism) could qualify for introjection or compensation.

    QUOTE FROM HER APOLOGY IN GEOCITIES: It is my fervent hope that the lessons that Ive learned are not lost on all those who through anonymous blogs, engaged in bigotry, discrimination, and hatred ( against overweight individuals , for example )
    —> YEAH RIGHT!!! Stop passing the focus to others! We don’t hate fat people/overweight individuals… WE JUST HATE YOU!!!

  58. Bryanboy, you should re-think about using the term “third world” next time. It’s a defunct word. It’s more politically correct to use “developing”, according to the U.N. All in all, your article was quite entertaining. Oh, and thank God Malu quit =)

  59. ANNE MARIE ARBUIS

    Shes absolutely FAT & UGLY & even with her expensive smelling cologne (we can’t smell that on her pictures though), that won’t make her beautiful. I hate Filipino’s discriminating their fellow Filipino’s. The hell you’re living a very luxurious life MALU FERNANDEZ, not everybody does & it’s not their fault so you have no right to discriminate OFW’s! Even when they work as achay or what, they work hard for their families & not to buy just a bottle of your luxurious cologne & eat those FATTENING SH*T! your life is always HELL even when you don’t take the Economy class cause your body is full of fat & you’re always hot even when it’s not. So better take all those sleeping pills para makatulog ka kahit sobrang stress. You SLIMY FAGGOT!
    Another thing…GET A DOUBLE SEATER ECONOMY CLASS! YOU’RE NOT A ONE-SEATER FAT-ASS! Dream on!

  60. Wow.She makes me think of the REAL rich people, and from the top of my mind: BONO OF U2, who could be living on easy street right now but would rather spend time on, oh let’s see, some small stuff like AFRICAN DEBT REDUCTION. Do we really need an elitist, rotund, just-doesn’t-get-it, shameless and unrepentant WANNABE around? Some columnist. Hey Malu, Marie Antoinette would love to welcome you wherever she is right now.

  62. sayang lang hindi ko nakita itong site noong kasagsagan ng issue. dito sa italia maski saang may piazza, pinaguusapan yang malu na yan. pero humanda pa rin siya sasabunatan yan ng mga pilipina at pilipino sa frunkfurt airport, may picture nga siya sa bawat pinoy/pinay doon. huwag lang siyang pakalatkalat dito sa italia.

    There really isn’t any need to insult Ms. Fernandez further; I think she’s quite miserable on her own. I’ve encountered her enough to know that she’s pretentious and obnoxious. I also know that although her family may have some affluence, I certainly would never include her among the truly high-end of Philippine society she aspires to associate herself with. Sure she may orbit the circle, but she lacks the financial gravitas to truly live the lifestyle at that level. But even that aside, her complete lack of finer sensibilities or circumspect in her utterances indicate a mistaken concept of how the higher strata generally operate. The upper-crust manner, in my humble opinion, is one where there is the absence of a need to prove it to anyone. The traditionally rich guard the private details of their lives, perhaps just sharing it with a few intimates. Bragging about the inconsequential accoutrements of “the fabulous life” as Ms. Fernandez does in article after article, smacks more of an arriviste rather than a person already “to the manor born.” The classic signs are all there – name-dropping, an obsession with expensive accessories (and the need to highlight the brand), the feeling of entitlement, the clear disdain and lack of empathy for those she feels are not of her strata. It must be very difficult for her to constantly try to keep up with a crowd she just can’t keep up with financially. If she could she would have easily bought a first-class ticket and we would have all been spared of her tirade.
    Feeling alienated from a crowd she so desperately wants to be a part of must make her very frustrated. Many bloggers also made fun of her portliness. I would imagine that the insults concerning her weight we’re not the first time she had heard such comments. She was physically large when I met her, and she still is to this day. There must also be a great deal of frustration in not being able to lose the weight. Part of being “Fierce and Fabulous” is the glam-factor. Obesity isn’t generally considered glamorous. There is so much out of her control that I can only imagine her seething anger as she sat in economy with her fellow Filipinos from Dubai. Powerless to do anything to extricate her from that circumstance, she lashed out by berating them, by trying to convince people that although she sat in economy with them, she is not one of them. She is high class and they are not. That kind of venom, that kind of irrational anger is so deep-seated that it can only come from a life she felt she had no control of – much like her weight and her social status.

    hi guys! just wanted to let you know that ms. fernandez has a profile on FRIENDSTER and MYSPACE! so feel free to bludgeon her to death with your killer comments, wahahahahaha
    P.S.: i soooooooo hate to be in her shoes right now

    Right now, her parents must be remorseful for having contributed to the zygote that had mutated into such an uncouth abominable creature…one that has quite a large bowel to stomach a low-life disparaging of people.
    If she were really as materially endowed, then she should be in the stage where philanthropy is a nifty little hobby. Her fashionably socially-responsible person should, by now, have generated jobs locally to prevent Filipinos from becoming the economy-class sardines that she hated but could not avoid swimming with anyway.
    She is nothing but pigskin holding together airs and delusions of glamor and grandeur.

  66. Malu Am really pitty on you pati ung ibang kamaganak mo nadamay sa kagagahan mo gaya ni Sen. Miguel Zubiri kaya pala ang hirap nyang manalo last election kasi kahit anong pretend nyang handa syang tumulong eh halos matalo parin sya kasi magkalahi pala kayo IPOKRITA AT MAYABANG…

    What’s so wrong about being an OFW? Many kids from rich families aspire to work abroad too. At least they are working and being productive. They are not a burden to their families and the government. The OFWs are just living their lives and they do not bother anyone. In fact, they are the kindest people whom you will meet in your travels abroad. I would rather sit beside a Pinoy smelling like Axe than someone with B.O. At least the Pinoys are clean!!

  68. kristine0019

    Isa lang ang masasabi ko sa iyo, Malu Fernandez…
    YOU ARE SUCH A B@#$H!
    OFW’s are the only reason as to why the Philippine economy remains afloat. They work for abusive employers just to be able to provide their families a decent living. Now if they opt to wear AXE and Charlie, it’s because they’d rather send their hard-earned money back home than waste it on needless luxuries.
    I think you’re not just a bigot; you also have an inferiority complex. Balita ko kasi, mayaman ang pamilya nyo, pero hindi alta sociedad. At sa inyong magkakapatid, ikaw lang daw ang mataba. Kaya naman pala social climber ka…at hindi ka makapunta sa beach…KASI BABOY KA KAYA HINDI KA MAKASUOT NG SWIMSUIT/BIKINI.
    MAMATAY KA NA SANA! SOCIAL CLIMBER! RACIST! BIGOT! MATAPOBRE! KAHIT ANONG GAWIN MO, HINDING-HINDI KA MAKAKASAMA SA HIGH SOCIETY!

  69. My comment after reading Malu’s “little apology”: People like you is living proof that the Philippines is indeed a THIRD WORLD country. Comments like yours certainly would not come from someone more educated and well-heeled…

  70. people should also blame malu fernandez’ editors & people asia. they published it.

  71. Malu Fernandez is just the tip of the iceberg (she is as big as one) when we really want to get into the worldview of the old rich and powerful in Philippine society. (Although quite frankly, as a student of history, I believe no one, not even the Ayalas–can claim they are old rich-only the Muslim Royals of the South whose ancesttrs never kissed and suck the asses and cocks of the “Spanish colonial masters.” Not one Filipino family can claim aristocratic roots–not even the Cojuangcos whose ancestral “temple” was constructed only when Cory became president. Emilio Yap’s family though has ancestral temples dating to almost 1000 years old. But then again, Yap is Chinese. Anyhows..)
    Manila’s elite genuinely hate the OFWs because they are reminded of how their elders and families USED TO ROB these people. C’mmon, YOU THINK ZUBIRI will have that kind of money if he wasn’t such a good CADDIE to the late great dictator Marcos? Go ask Mabanta. (Yes, I have to use Zubiri because he is the brother in law of Malu.) Speaking of Zubiri, you wonder if Vicky has the same “matapobre” attitude. I should think so! And for that matter, I think MIGUEL ZUBIRI is a phoney just like her aunt! Shit! My family voted him! I pity Koko. We OFWs should show our disdain to Malu by supporting Koko’s bid and petition to the Supreme Court! Afterall, YOU WOULDN’T WANT MALU FERNANDEZ’ NEPHEW MIGUEL ZUBIRI to have the chance to plunder this country dry, would you?! Shit! I can just imagine him and his phoney wife raising their kids the way Malu was raised by her family! OFWs unite! Ban Malu! Ban Zubiri!
    To Malu: if you think this is too personal, well, this is real life honey! Let’s see if Crickette Tantoco and all your fucking friends can protect you from the wrath of OFWs worldwide! Hmm, speaking of Crickette…didn’t Malu mention in her first apology that HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY loved her article? Mga hijas de putas! Mga matapobre talaga! TOO THINK SEMI-CRONY DIN NI MACOY ANG MGA TANTOCOS NOON! Itaga mo sa bato Bryanboy, I will never buy in Rustan’s again! As for the publisher, Lopez-owned yang Lifestyle Asia, di ba? FUCK THE LOPEZES! THEY’RE MAKING MONEY OUT OF THE MASA AND THE MILLIONS OF OFWS! WHY DID THEY ALLOW THE ARTICLE TO BE PRINTED ANYWAY? IT MEANS–THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG WITH IT! TANG INA! HOW CALLOUS CAN YOU GET?! Never mind if you hate us but please, to actually articulate it in a magazine read by fellow Asians?! Masyado kaming kinawawa!
    Final note: My OFW friends in Dubai, Greece and HK already have the picture of Malu in their cellphones. No, don’t worry, di naman sya leletchonin. Di naman salbahe ang mga OFWs! But, if she finds herself in these places,I wouldn’t be surprised if her food and drinks will taste funky! THIS IS WAR, PEOPLE!

  72. Bryanboy! A very refereshing point of view. The need to be different. Very good.
    But I think it’s been just a tad too easy for Bloggerdom to be bashing a bush league newspaper like the Manila Standard Today and the Abominable Gordo Bourgeois, but she isn’t the most original or most disdainful. She did not invent the genre of writing that is unsympathetic to the diaspora.
    They were called TOILET BOWL CLEANERS OF THE THE WORLD by no less than Conrad de Quiros and the Philippine Daily Innuendo, didn’t ya know?
    Tackle them, Braveheart!

  73. im an editor and if something is not right with the articles I ALLOWED to be published, i take FULL RESPONSIBILITY! kahit pa hindi ko nakita na may mali sa umpisa. GAGO LANG TONG SI MALU! well, what do you expect from someone who drowns herself with deigner items to cover up her insecurities in life? TAMA SI BRYANBOY! tingnan natin kung masagip ka ng mga taong tinatawag mong FRIENDS! o dali…litsunin na yan with her ACCESSORIES!

  74. fellow fashionsita nga niya si kitty go. fashionable kasi sa kanila ang mga crudely written articles and pieces, gaya nu’ng horribly edited (if at all) na libro ni kitty go. mga pretentious. walang kapararakan ang buhay. they are so very out. sana maisip nila na magaganda at mabubuting tao sina princess diana (rip), angelina jolie, drew barrymore, at kung sinu-sinong hindi nandidiri sa humanity. sabagay, mahirap kasing mag-pretend na human ang mga hayop.

    Scary talaga ang remark nitong MF, gusto mong kalimutan at tila isang masamang panaginip pero it really stings, naimbyerna ang araw ko, I found it too late pero I am seething, no livid is the correct terms. Trying hard talaga itong Ms. Chicharon, never heard nga ang perfume niya. Wala nga yan dito sa Marshall’s or TJ Maxx, mas signature conscious pa siguro ang OFW compare sa kanya. Ang baboy, err.. babaw niya.Wala pa akong alam na nagkapasa ang binti sa economy/coach, obvious kasi na dambuhala siya, she needs two seats para maaccommodate her big fat ass.

    WHADDDAYA MEAN TONGUE-IN-CHEEK?
    ACERBIC WIT?
    READ ANY THICKER THAN A MAGAZINE???
    Well.
    People,stop trying to hide your inner bitch behind wit.It’s disgusting.I once read this quote by none other than Gertrude Stein herself,and she makes a distinction between the two.And as for your article being tongue-in-cheek,it simply isn’t true,because your tongue is already sticking out,dripping forth your classist venom(personally,I’m a bit of a classist too,but at least I have never insulted anyone outside my class.).
    I hope this affirms that OFWs do read things thicker and heavier than magazines,thick and heavy enough to bash her pig head in.

  77. Over Acting

    Hahaha, ngayon ko lang nabasa ito. Mahirap sa ating mga Pinoy, sobrang sensitibo. Nabasa ko ang sinulat nung baboy na yun (pero mukha niya nakakalibog, malaki rin suso niya, at mukhang magaling sumubo), wala naman akong nakitang ikagagalit ko. Hindi ako kakampi kay Malu o kanino man. Wala lang, OA lang talaga.
    Mabuhay ang People’s Republic of China!
    HAHAHA.
