Hail to the Queen/King? Chapter 2

Image courtesy of www.saltlakedesignergal.blogspot.com


The Hail to the Queen/King? Chapter 1 story led a reader from the U.S.A. to send me a thank you message for exposing abusive social climbers. Unfortunately, this reader (she) also had a dose of the ungratefulness of this magazine editor.  She was hesitant at first to give me permission to share her story, but after much convincing, she finally agreed. Here is her story:

She met the magazine editor (him/her) in a fashion show when she was vacationing in Manila.  After that meeting, they started exchanging Facebook messages.  Being the hospitable Filipina, she told him/her to get in touch in the event that he/she visits the U.S.A.  

One rainy afternoon, the reader received a call from him/her requesting her to drive him/her around because no one was available.  She hurriedly picked him/her up from where he/she was staying and brought him/her shopping.  She even offered to pay for some of his/her purchases and he/she accepted the offer without batting his/her fake eyelash.  After their shopping spree, he/she requested her to drop him/her off at a certain restaurant because he/she has a dinner date with a male model friend.  

On the way to the restaurant, he/she invited her to join him/her for the said dinner date. That evening, she ended up paying for their dinner.  After dinner, she brought them clubbing.  At the bar, he/she started posing with the hot Caucasian men while she took their pictures.  In his/her Facebook page, he/she only posted his/her photos with the men, minus his/her photos with her.

The sad part was when it was time for him/her to leave for the Philippines, the reader did not hear from him/her.  No goodbyes nor thank you to his/her driver, cashier and photographer.  The worst part was when she came back to Manila, she bumped into him/her at a party.  He/she just said hello and made no effort to invite her even for a cup of coffee.  

Thank you dear reader for allowing me to share your story.  Let this be a lesson to all of us. Please stay away from ungrateful social climbers.  

In closing, I wish to borrow a quote from Blaire Waldorf, "not even a manicure can mask those peasant hands." This is our message to the Queen/King, "not even your shiny pearls can mask your grim attitude."

Thank you for reading.  Please follow me on twitter: micsylim.

  4. halu again!
    i love love love your posts about this social climbing ill-bred piece of doo-doo.
    just one request, my dear fashionpulis: please do not describe IT as a magazine editor. IT is NOT and never will be. IT cannot even string a decent written sentence together.
    and in case you're wondering, yes, i had to bring it up because i am an editor. for IT to be accorded a title which i worked for in an honest and proper way is an affront to all in the publishing industry.
    i'm sure one day we shall meet one day, fashionpulis, and toast to the de-throning (maybe IT sits on another kind of throne? hahahaha) of this social mountaineer.

    your fan,
    :) :) :)

  6. I read editorial consultant somewhere.

    It took me 30 minutes to find the person's name online because although I had a face, I didn't know who IT was.

    Your blog is such compelling read. Keep 'em coming.

  10. basing on HIS/HER looks, he/she looks mabaho with an ugly skin and top that with a matrona perfume. That's how I see,smell him/her. Modern matronang baklogs (baklang jologs) with no sense of style. He/she thinks that he/she is one, but oh my umay no! He/she like opening his/her mouth when taking pictures. Makes you want to thrust down the throat with a blunt knife.

  18. Any more clues? Can't really seem to figure this one out. Please more clues. :)

  19. Hi Mike! I am one of your followers in Fashion Pulis. I really love your blog. I think that you are the only fashion/gossip blog with real class. I really love it.
    Social climbers are kind of common in any industry. Hahaha. However, one particular that I am really irritated about is one of the finalists of a prestigious local fashion competition.
    Although she is not that well known yet, (in her head she is a complete celebrity already, even made a page for herself, with a few people liking it... most of it her friends hahaha! --- how self-conceited!) she does attach herself with rich people. Her ploy is like this: she appears to be a nice, humble, innocent and helpful friend to a person richer than her. She will enjoy whatever this current friend's lifestyle. Then, when she finds someone "richer" or "higher in society rankings", she introduces herself or tricks her current friend to introduce her to that one. She does the whole persona again. After the introduction, she somehow gets into that new friend's circle, ditches the "lower ranking friend" and enjoy the benefits of having a richer friend.
    How should I know? I am close to her past victims! (And used to be close with her, until she ditched me as well)
    A little back story, “Lolo” and the "victims" were friends back in the day and bonded on a fun dress up competition. I remembered the owners carrying her bags, while she run around with other friends, in front of photographers. She made them look like her yayas. Also, these two actually financially supported her in making of her entries(s) because she cannot afford it. (Not to be matapobre but she came and is still from a humble income bracket). In addition, when they ate in restaurants, “Lolo” never paid. She would order a lot food that she never ate and allow the victims to pay for the whole thing!
    She ended up with other people in the competition. Sad for her, but “Lolo” was actually manipulated herself. She would lend her stuff to these people and sometimes would even do their make up for free during these times AND CARRY AND WATCH THEIR BAGS! HAHA!
    As years passed, “Lolo” entered fashion to finally escape these current "poor friends" that she has. She went to a makati fashion school so she can even dub herself as a "makati girl". During her stint in that city, she passed from one rich friend to a richer one. She got into fashion school to meet "richer friends" and did her thing. She went to parties with these people, even got rides going there! (Kapal)
    She pretends to be this "naapi" and "humble" person (because no one understands her daw), but she is a 100% user! She uses it to attract pity, attention and well richer friends that are nice.
    And I have just discovered that one of my recently added friends, one of the most gifted accessory designEr in the Metro, is one of hers! (Oh wow. How high has she climbed?)
    The designer and I just met recently. Honestly, I really want to warn him about her but it would sound odd as I think they have been "friends long enough" for the two of them to bond during a trip in "divisoria". Check his FB. Thus, the reason that I want to do this is maybe, through a blind item, he'll figure this out on his own (and other high level designers about dealing with her)

  33. Thank you Paul for such a fine lunch in the midst of books and iconic chairs... but beyond that is the insightful conversation I always have with you. See you in NYC soon...ANG MASYUMBANG SOCIAL CLIMBER STRIKES AGAIN

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh why don't you look at the Queen's facebook account now. Social climbing should be an extreme sport given the way he goes at it. Oh yes, disarmingly nice and fun to be with until little by little you feel yourself being used (until it moves on to a richer prey). Let us not forget to mention the number of people booted, "retired" or "reassigned" so as to get the "position" he lusted for whcih includes travel etc parties, junkets. Fashion/ Travel /Society portfolio all in one. And because he inched his way close to the top brass heir of the org through major kiss ass... nay... rimming is more apt given the manner of kiss ass done. Those shoes bear the blood of those he butchered to get the "position" created for him/her. Shit does float to the top.
