Guess Where FP is Going Next Week

Image courtesy of

On Monday night, I am flying to the capital of this country with four of my close friends. We will be there for six days. This is the first time that I am not excited for my trip because I know I have to leave my readers behind. I am already feeling the separation anxiety. I will try my best though to write from where I am. It might also take more time before I get to post your comments. I hope you will be patient.

Can you guess where we are going? Will you be interested too see some of our travel photos? Let me know your thoughts. Again, thank you for your support and love.

Double Dead

This mother had her baby girl when she was a teenager so she decided to leave her behind in the hospital. She thought her dark past will be buried forever until a few years ago when she received a phone call from a woman who claimed that she was that baby. After receiving the call, the mother decided to open up her sketchy past to her husband because she was scared that the caller might extort money from her. The understanding husband did not judge her and even suggested that they should set a meeting with the caller.

On the day of the meeting, the mother was very relieved when she learned that the daughter she abandoned turned out to be an accomplished doctor. After their initial meeting, they met each other regularly trying to make up for lost time. When they became close to each other, the mother tried to loan cash amounting close to two million pesos from her newly found daughter. Since the daughter  was told that the money will be used for the family's business, she agreed to lend her the money without further questions.

Almost two years have passed since the money lending incident happened and the daughter still has not received any payment. She would enter into an argument with the mother every time she brings up the topic. Her patience eventually dwindled so one day she exploded and had a big fight with her. After that day, she decided to cut off her ties with her and her family members.

The daughter has not been paid to this day. She regretted that she had to look for her biological mother that led her to lose so much money. She wished she never got to know her.

Do you know who is this mother? It might be difficult for some of you to guess her identity because she is not that known. She does have a popular hot athlete son though who belongs to a highly publicized all male sport team. Her family is into the retail business.

Model Homewrecker

Image courtesy of

This commercial model first laid eyes on her son's classmate's dad when she saw him in school. Since he was always with his wife, she befriended both of them. She would take photos of her son together with their daughter and share it with them. In short, she was considered as a friend of the family.

One time when this dad went out of the country, the wife accidentally accessed the messages from his social networking site. She was devastated when she discovered that her husband was having an affair with their daughter's classmate's mom for more than six month already. She saw messages from the model telling her husband that she wanted him exclusively for herself. She goes on bad mouthing the wife and suggesting that he should abandon her. She even threatened him that if he does not leave his family, she will just try to fix her marriage with her husband.

Eventually, the wife separated from her husband after discovering his affair with this model. Although this was not the first time she caught him womanizing, the affair with their daughter's classmate's mom was just unforgivable. She just knew that it was time for her to let go. 

The funny thing is a couple of years later, news broke out that her former husband was caught in bed with a politician's common law wife. When the politician caught them on the act, he got hold of his mobile phone containing the messages sent to him by his other married lovers. The politician later went on television threatening these married women that he will call their husbands and inform them about their extra marital activities.

Right after the politician's interview was aired, the model set her social networking site on private mode. She isolated herself from all her friends and went into hibernation. More than a year later, her friends just got news that she already had another baby.

Do you know who is this model? She may not be very popular but she has several television commercials wherein she always plays the role of a housewife. She was washing clothes in one of the television advertisements for a brand of detergent.

Before I end this story, I have two pieces of advice. To the casting agents out there, you should look into the background of the talents you hire because their negative image might affect the brand. To all the mothers out there, do not allow your husbands to be over exposed in your kid's school because there are just too many lonely married women lurking around.

Hand Woven Tote by Aranaz

I fell in love with this Aranaz hand woven tote when I saw it in Greenbelt 5 a few days ago. I just had to go back to the store this afternoon with S.M. to buy it. Priced at 2,500 Php (after 10% discount), it is an inexpensive alternative to a Bottega Veneta that will cost you an arm and a leg. For a well crafted one of kind tote that is proudly Philippine made, I think this is really a good buy.

French Maid Uniform

Image courtesy of

If a person gets sexually aroused from a physical object, this is called sexual fetishism. The person is called a fetishist while the object is called the fetish. 

The French maid uniform is one common fetish among men who have power issues because it indicates absolute submission. The uniform, worn by a servant who traditionally defers to her wealthy master, gives the fetishist a sense of control and dominance. 

This story might be obsolete to some of the readers who belong to the social circle. Apart from this story, let me tell you what else is obsolete. In the household of this wealthy businessman, all his maids are no longer allowed to wear French maid uniform. This became a rule after the numerous times his wife caught him flipping the skirts of their maids and making a pass at them. This is also the reason why they have such a high turnover rate for their maids.

What is sad though is that every time the wife catches her husband, she undergoes cosmetic surgery to make herself feel more beautiful. I think she is not solving her problem. My recommendation to her is that she should try wearing French maid uniform inside the bedroom. This might just do the trick. If this is her husband's fetish, then I suggest it is worth giving a try. If it still does not work, at least we now know that the fetish of the husband is not the uniform, but the maids.

By the way, if you pass by their mansion now, you will see that all the maids wear white round neck t-shirt and black pants. Do you know who is this society couple? I will give you a clue. This businessman was previously married to a another woman who is also now married. 

As much as I want to give you more information, I will control myself. I suggest though that you follow micsylim on twitter and you might just get more clues.

You Don't Know Me?

Image courtesy of

After all the passengers have boarded this international flight, the son of this high-ranking politician spotted many vacant seats in the business class section. He stood up, left his economy seat, and transferred to the business class section.

When one of the flight attendants noticed his move, she politely approached him and requested that he goes back to his seat. He was offended that she called his attention. He spoke to her in a loud voice, saying "You don't know me? I am the son of . . . . . . . .  I have the right to choose where I want to sit."

The stewardess did not want any trouble so she went to the cockpit and told the pilot about the incident. A few minutes later, the pilot came out and approached this passenger. He told him that the plane will not depart unless everyone is properly seated. At that moment, he realized that the pilot was darn serious. He swallowed his pride, stood up and walked back to his assigned seat.

Do you know who is this passenger? Apart from his parents being politicians, he was also recently elected into office.

My Wife is a Gambler?

Image courtesy of

This housewife has a gambling problem. She walks around the casino almost everyday carrying cash between one to two million pesos. She is no ordinary housewife though.  She is the wife of a young good looking politician who holds a position in one of the local government units. Her husband definitely has bigger plans for his political career in 2013.

When the time comes, I hope his constituents will consider his wife's gambling problem before making their choices. Let us remember, "Behind every man's success (or failure), there is a woman!"

Debutante Gown by Frederick Peralta

I would like to share with you photos of my client/debutante last week, Clarice. She was wearing a strapless ball gown with fully beaded bodice by veteran designer, Frederick Peralta. This orange gown definitely made her feel like a princess on her special day. 

Satellite Network

Celebrity fashion stylists work very closely with the stars. They hear many first hand stories straight from their clients when they work with them privately inside their dressing rooms. Since these stars entrust their personal stories to them, they should know how to protect their client's privacy. Gathering news from the stars of one network and sharing it with the stars of another is very unethical.

There is this one stylist who has several clients from two different networks. While styling his clients from TV5, he would gather all the information and share it with his clients from the GMA7, and vice versa. This is his strategy to get closer to all his celebrity clients. As a client, you should know better that if he can share something private about another client to you, it is most likely that he also shares something about you to his other clients. My advice to these stars is to be more careful when you share anything to this stylist friend because he is betraying your trust.  

Do you know who is this celebrity stylist? His last name begins with the letter M. I think I want him to be my friend so that I can have more celebrity stories to share on Fashion PULIS.

What's Their Common Denominator?

Image courtesy of

According to the New York Times, Milan prosecutor Laura Pedio has accused design duo, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, of tax evasion when they sold their brands Dolce & Gabbana and D&G to Gado, a Luxembourg based holding company. The Italian financial police believed that Gado is a dummy company established by the two designers to avoid higher corporate taxes in Italy. This is a clear case of tax evasion because they set up a dummy company overseas while the firm operated in Italy. The two designers, together with seven other officials, will be facing criminal charges.  If convicted, they could face up to seven years in prison.

If you remember, in 2009 the BOY claimed that Dolce and Gabbana were responsible for putting him on the front row of their Milan fashion show. If this were true, I guess now we know what is their common denominator. The three of them are all scam artists!

COO said: Remove All Her Ads?

Image courtesy of

Is it true that the actress featured in the Allergic to Make-Up and ENGLISH and Who Are You? posts was fired as the endorser of a real estate company? According to one reader, she told management that she is the only reason why the company is doing well in the market. When the child of the owner (COO) found out about this, he instructed the top management to remove all her ads and replace her. Is this why the new endorser of the company now is another actress from a competing network?

Allergic to Make-Up and ENGLISH?

Image courtesy of

If you have not identified the lead actress in yesterday's Who Are You? story, then I suggest you find out the answer first before reading today's post. This was emailed to me by one of my former students and I thought of sharing it with you. 

When the hunky boyfriend of this actress was confined in the hospital, she was there regularly to visit him. She was terribly bothered by the sight of the good looking nurses in that particular section. She was also irritated that they all spoke to her in English.

Being the possessive and insecure girlfriend, she called for the head nurse (supervisor) and asked her as to why all the nurses are wearing make-up? She added further if this is because they know that many celebrities will be visiting her boyfriend. She also complained that the nurses were talking to her in English in spite that she was speaking to them in Filipino. 

After listening to her, the head nurse politely explained to her that is the standard operating procedure of the hospital, specially for nurses assigned in the VIP section. They are all encouraged to wear make-up to look their best and to speak in English as much as possible. She blushed after hearing this. She held her breath for a while and just uttered, "OK!"

Who Are You?

Image courtesy of

On a domestic flight back to Manila, this popular movie and television actress went on the plane and occupied one of the seats in the business class section. The flight attendant upon noticing a passenger occupying a supposedly vacant seat, approached the actress, and politely asked her to present her boarding pass. The actress sat still, pretended not to hear anything and raised one of her eyebrows. After a few minutes, the same attendant walked up to her and requested for her boarding pass again. This time around, she stood up, gathered her things and moved over to another seat in the business class section by the bulkhead area. The attendant followed the actress to her seat and insisted on seeing the boarding pass. The actress looking very upset, stared at the attendant, and asked, "hindi mo ba ako nakikilala?" The attendant smiled back and responded in a very coy manner, "sino po ba sila?" Shocked with what she heard, the actress stood up and moved hurriedly to the economy section to find her assigned seat.

This popular actress has been part of several soap operas. She is one of the stars of a giant network. Do you know who is she?

Kudos to You!

Image courtesy of

I was saddened when I read this comment that one of our readers left after reading one of the stories. She wrote:
"Haay, this blind item hit so close to home. Yep, been there, done that. :(

The mom of my daughter's classmate had the gall to go after my hubby. This is a blind item in its own right, since she is a commercial model. She's got tons of endorsements. Her hubby is a businessman as well, but is rumored to be gay. 

I sooo wanted to get back at her, but I sure do know that it takes two to tango, and knowing my hubby's track record, she is not the only one to blame. And I refuse to destroy another family, the way she attempted to destroy mine. Besides, I think she has much to fear with the news of CS coming out with an expose.

Ok, I digress."
My message to this reader:

I admire you for bravely posting your comment. I know what you went through was very painful. My heart goes to women like you who have to endure such tragedies in life. I am happy that you can now talk about it freely because this means that you have overcome the test. KUDOS to you! We are all proud of you.

My best girl friend also has a similar story to tell. Her traumatic story with her former husband is one for the books. I will share it with you one of these days. As her best friend, I try my best to support her in all of her decisions. She has two little beautiful daughters and it is sad that they have to grow up without a father.

All That Glitters is Not Gold

Image courtesy of

Last December 2009, fifteen days before Christmas, my credit card was stolen from my wallet without my knowledge at a party. I only noticed that it was missing the following evening. When I called the customer service hotline, I could not believe that the thief was able to charge transactions amounting to more than 400,000 Php in a matter of eight hours (11 am to 8 pm). His purchases included several bags from Louis Vuitton, MacBook from the Apple Store, appliances from SM Department Store and many more. I  requested my lawyer to write letters to the bank disputing these transactions because I did not even receive a notice in spite of the irregular transactions. I only got the bank's attention seven months later when I arrived home from Europe. The bank officials had a meeting with me and we were able to resolve the issue.

I was a victim of credit card fraud and I detest credit card scam artists. They should all be arrested and put behind bars for the rest of their lives. I am sure you will understand my position after what I have experienced. I take it very personally!

The funny thing is every time I share this story with friends, they would always say maybe the infamous BOY was present at the party (of course he wasn't). I thought people are all aware of the Cathay Pacific Airways case filed against this BOY for making fraudulent on-line ticket purchases using stolen credit cards. Apparently everyone knows this except for the PR firm of a jewelry company who plans to sign him up for an advertorial. I am not sure about the details but I was scandalized when I heard the news. A PR firm should protect the image of the client's brand and not destroy it. In the jewelry company's official website, there is a pledge to act responsibly. To this PR firm, I suggest you abide by this pledge. Please do your research!

Sometimes, I feel that Filipinos are just so forgiving. Please, let us not tolerate these scam artists. I think the only reason why he has never been arrested is because he has a relative in the military who shares the same last name. Yes, the BOY is trying very hard to project a glittering image, but keep this in mind, "All that glitters is not gold!"

Obsession with Aromatherapy Diffuser Continues

Last Friday, I bought a set of aromatherapy diffuser from Mia Maison. I find the scent too mild so I paced it in the bathroom. For my living room, I needed something stronger so I went to Tarte Tatin earlier to buy a new set. Tarte Tatin is a children's apparel store located on the third level of Greenbelt 5, across Timezone. Inside the store, you will find a display cabinet filled with aromatherapy diffusers that are priced very reasonably. Thanks to S.M. for the shopping tip.

Bilmoko! (Buy Me!)

This mother of one child went shopping with her generous celebrity boyfriend and her mom in a luxury store. When it was time to pay for the bill, her boyfriend was shocked that their total purchases amounted close to 1,000,000 Php. Since they will be getting married soon, he had no choice but to just pay for the extravagant shopping spree of his fiancée and his future mom-in-law.

Is this woman really in love with her boyfriend or is she just using him for her ambition and financial gains? Ever since they started dating, her stage mom demanded that the boyfriend should triple her daughter's salary. Please do not let her sweet looks deceive you in 2013.

Sublimation: From Solid to Gas

This popular hair stylist used to be one of partners in a high end salon located inside a mall. His business partners started to be suspicious when he began to request for frequent cash advancements. Being a long time business partner, he was granted advancements close to 2,000,000 Php without any question. He used the money he got to live the high life, travelling and shopping with his boyfriend in different countries. One day, the partners were appalled when they received an SMS message from this hair stylist informing them that he will no longer join the company. In short, he just disappeared like gas!

Months after his disappearing act, the partners received news that this hair stylist will be collaborating with another group. Sooner than expected, their new salon was established in the same mall, carrying the name of this hair stylist.

OPM: Oh Promise Me

A designer approached a novice male model after a fashion show. He introduced himself to the model and expressed his interest to cast him for a series of swim wear shows. The designer invited him for a private go see, where he requested him to remove his pants. After seeing him in his underwear, the designer wanted more. He instructed him to remove his underwear because according to him, it is important for him to know the size of the package of his swim wear models. The model felt very uncomfortable with the situation so he made up excuses and left the venue immediately.

Later that night, the designer sent the model several text messages promising him a slot in his upcoming shows provided that he goes back to his studio. He told him that it is really important for him to see his package so that he can measure it. After ignoring him, he received a new batch of texts suggesting that he should just take photos of his package using a digital camera and email the files to him. When there was still no reply, he begged him to just take a photo using his phone's camera and send it via MMS. The designer bombarded him with messages of similar content for more than a week.

The model shared this incident with one of his close girl friends. When she heard about the incident, she decided to do her own research. Upon performing a Goggle search on the designer, she was shocked when she discovered that he does not even design swim wears. He is an accessory designer.

I can not tell you what kind of accessory this designer specializes in because it would be easy for you to identify him (at least for those active in the fashion industry). More than exposing this designer, my objective for posting this story is to inform the models to be aware of red flags. Even if it were a casting for a swim wear or an under wear show, you do not need to show your package!

The model in this story would like to inform the designer that he saved all of his text messages. In the event that the designer asks for evidence, he is very much willing to lend us his cell phone. To the designer, I recommend that you destroy your simcard and get a new mobile number.

Shoe Chandeliers

When I posted the photos of Landmark's shoe rack chandeliers, one of the readers informed me that she has seen something similar in Henri Bendel New York's show window in 2009. So, I decided to do a Google search for shoe chandelier and these were some of the photos I saw. I am particulary in love with the second one that used glass shoes. Which one do you like most?

Girl Interrupted: The Final Chapter

Image courtesy of

This actress has been in and out of the hospital because of her drug overdose problem. Late last year, she was brought in the hospital looking very ill. She confessed to the doctor that she has been experimenting with different drugs. After running several tests on her, the results indicated that she has high levels of Methamphetamine (Shabu), Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (Ecstacy), and Benzodiazepines (Downers) in her body. This means that she has been hooked on these drugs for a long period of time. In her two weeks of confinement, she was very paranoid and she did not want any light to enter the room. The doctor diagnosed her with a severe case of depression.

Earlier this year, family members and friends rushed her to the emergency room of the same hospital with a piece of cloth covering her face and body. When the group arrived, it was as if the doctors already knew that they were coming. They were not asked to wait in the emergency room but instead she was confined immediately without having to go through the process. The doctors never mentioned about her presence in the hospital. No one was allowed in her room besides her doctors. One of her doctors even posted an "out of order" sign on the door to prevent any other hospital personnel from entering. A few rooms away, her father was also confined in spite that he was not sick so that they will have an excuse in the event that the press asks about the family's presence in the hospital. The dad stayed in the hospital during the entire period of his daughter's confinement. This time around, her drug test results indicated even higher levels than the previous one.

Apparently, although she and her husband still live in one house, their marital problem has been ongoing for quite some time because of her drug addiction. To make things worse,  they are legally obligated to portray the happy family image because of their endorsement contract.
