  1. Gusto ko yung mga ganung eksena na bibili ka to prove them wrong. Kaya lang di kaya ng budget. Hahaha

    1. To me naman, if you get discriminated na buy from another store. Why give them the business e binastos ka na

      Delete
    2. For me naman... I just love proving these people wrong... lol! But you're right... I’d do a pretty woman scene... shop elsewhere and go back but don’t buy anything . Simple vindication.

    3. coz they're gullibles dahil they still patronize the store or brands kahit they have been treated as trash just to be in or for recognition

  2. Iba talaga nagagawa pag celebrity ka, kahit the unfortunate event happened years ago na they still exerted effort to apologize, but if you're just an ordinary person shopping at a mall and experienced the same "Charge to Experience" na lang talaga ang ending.

    1. Kasi madali maka kuha ng sympathy ng mga tao pag celebrity ka, kaya aksyon agad sila baka wala na bumili sa kanila ganern

  3. Discrimination is everywhere. Fact. But it's good for our local celebrities to experience it once in a while esp abroad so that they're not out of touch with reality. Some of them already feel too entitled.

  4. Grabe ang liit ng tingin ng ibang lahi sa mga pinoy. Pero ang mga pinoy parang santo kung ituring ang ibang lahi .

    1. This. Tama ka. Which should not be the case.

    2. Ang Pinoy naman, maliit ang tingin sa kapwa Pinoy na sasabihan pa na Bisaya, probinsiyana, taga-bundok, ita, tsimay at kung ano-ano pa.

    3. 1255 well.. some Pinoys kasi misbehave kaya nage genaralize tayo

      Delete
    4. Kapag may nakita kang Pinoy na grupo kasi, maiingay na akala mo pasigaw laging magsalita.

      Delete
    5. Correct.Kala lahat ng Pilipino can't afford.Kaya maganda din na kung minsan minsan lalo na sa ibang bansa,ipakita mo na hindi tayo basta basta.

      Delete
    6. Happened to Oprah too.

      Delete
    7. Pinoys get generalized kasi. Marami din kasi sa atin na may mga di magagandang record sa abroad. TNT, maingay as tourists, etc.

      Delete
    8. May mga iba sa atin na kulang sa social graces.Sana magpakita din tayo ng magandang asal para hindi tayo bastusin ng iba.

    1. PR lang yan but they could care less. Major companies do that here in the US even with regular folks na nagcocomplain especially about being discriminated publicly sa media.

  6. High end sales associates should remember, Customer is king. Kahit pa mukhang taga-bukid yang pumasok sa store nyo you’ll never know, sila pa pala yung mapera

    1. Isa ka pa e. Ano po ba itsura ng "taga-bukid"?

      Delete
    2. Kami ng asawa ko nagtatrabaho sa bukid namin, pero mukha kaming mayaman. Greek asawa ko at ako naman ay mestisang pinay....So anong ibig mong sabihin na "mukhang tiga-bukid"???

      Delete
    3. Tama siya 2:06

      Delete
    4. maraming taga bukid na mayaman. haleer,, madami ding dukha sa maynila. maka"taga bukid" ka naman dyan

    5. 2:06 yung malalapad At makakapal mga paa At kamay at suot e long sleeves na kamisa at nakashorts lang na me mga bahid pa ng putik at tae ng kalabaw sa mga binti....

      Delete
    6. Paano mo nalaman na taga-bukid?

      Delete
    7. 2:06 AM - madaming "taga-bukid" na milyonaryo pero simple lang. literally they have dark leathery skin because of years they toiled under the hot sun. tapos simple lang damit na parang galing sa palengke, because probably dun nga lang nila binili. pero their kids and apos attended the best and most expensive private schools in the country and pag bumili ng sasakyan (big a$$ pickups and SUVs because yan ang uso sa probinsya) CASH. and yep, may kilala akong ganyan.

      Delete
    8. 2:06 typical snowflakes. Hindi ka pa ba nakakita ng taga-bukid? Also, tumingin ka sa realidad. May point si 12:48.

      Delete
    9. 2:06 and 3:05 You’re detached from reality. Yung mga “taga bukid” that I’m referring to, I know them and have interacted with them. They have their own farms, mga new rich sila, but you can say they’re not keen on designer stuff - nor do they dress in your standard of fashion. Pero madami silang pera, CASH, and are willing to head down to Manila, go to a high end boutique and treat themselves every once in a while. They don’t look metropolitan like what you’re used to seeing. Get a grip. Go out and see the rest of the world every once in a while

      Delete
    10. I understand what you meant immediately 2:06. Masyado naman parighteous at pahyper sensitive kayo.

      Delete
    11. sa japan,ung mga taga bukid yun ang mga galante, mas mapepera pa sila kesa sa mga naka tie and coat na customers, dahil lang sa nature of work nila, kaya simple lang sila manamit, pero sarili nilang farm ung pinagtatrabahuhan nila.

  7. Bulaklak lang?? Dapat one pair of Shoes or an LV bag!!

  8. Ineechos lang naman kayo ni chona. Delusion nya ang eksena sa pretty woman.

  9. Ganyan din na experience namin ng mom ko sa Paris. Natuwa lang kami sa champs elysees kasi andaming designer shops yung mga sales assistant titignan ka talaga mula ulo hanggang paa.

    2. Pag ako ang tiningnan ng sales lady from head to toe, I’ll do the same and ask her “how much do you make a year? Do you make six figures to look at me from read to toe?!” Hahaha

  14. Oprah was discriminated while shopping in Switzerland too. She was about to buy a 38k USD bag pero ayaw ipahawak ng saleslady yung mga bag na gustong nyang bilhin kasi there were too expensive daw, lol, akala mo sa bulsa nila manggagaling ang pambili

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Napanood ko yan,hindi lang siya sa Switzerland ayaw pagbilhan,pati ss LV ng Rome kasi hindi nila kilala si Oprah.Wala daw pambayad.Nakakaawa din si Oprah dahil ilang beses na na discriminate.

      Delete
  15. Maybe that was before, nowadays I noticed that they don’t discriminate like that.From Paris to US iyan,pasok ako sa mga high end stores and the SA are usually nice .I dressed simply too,Buti d ako ginanyan kasi I would simply walk away.I won’t even bother to prove myself na may pambili talaga ako.Parang ang saya naman nila nanginsulto na sila nagka business pa sila sa akin

    1. True, kasi alam nila Asians (majority Chinese pero pati Pinoys who go abroad na din), na ang may malakas na spending power ngayon! Super accomodating and special treatment na nga sa Asians ngayon all over the world pag shopping e.g. Europe may mga special Chinese shopping assistants everywhere and UAE may special tax refund na for Chinese. Kaya lets enjoy our glory days now hehe wag payag na apihin

      Delete
    2. Mas gusto kasi ng ibang lahi na mag-invest at mag-travel kesa sa mga bag na ganyan.

    3. Wala na kasing mga pera mga Amerikano kaya nga sila nakikipagpalitan ng mukha sa mga Sale lalo na pag Black Friday sale nila

      Delete
    4. Hmm...asians care more about status. We actually put importance sa fact na others perceive us as someone who has money, sometimes to the point na people try to appear richer than they actually are, while westerners like americans don't give a crap whether people see their wealth or not, the only important thing is that they actually have wealth, doesn't matter who knows. It's not uncommon to see americans who only have one pair of shoes but have a lot of money invested in stocks.

  16. Napanood ko na si Oprah mismo na ubod ng yaman,nakatikim ng discrimination sa LV sa Europe.Hindi nila nakilala hanggang tumawag yung manager ni Oprah at pinagbulhan sila ng bag.Binigyan pa sila ng wine nung sales clerk sa sobrang pahiya.

  18. Parang yung na-experience ng tita ko when the sales lady looked at her from head to toe. Tinignan din nya from head to toe tapos labas ng shop. Nakipagtarayan lang talaga sya kasi wala syang pera pambili. Masungit yun e! Hahaha.

  20. Nangyari din sa akin iyan sa Singapore sa Chanel stores (Ngee Ann City Orchard Road at Marina Bay Sands) that same holiday namin.
    Sa Orchard Road, I was looking for earrings and necklace naman. The staff didn't entertain me. So, I told her I'm looking for earrings and necklace. Ang sabi ba naman sa akin, "It's expensive" and not showing me the items. So, I told her with my head held high, "I don't care how much it is if I like it, I'll buy it cash". The ending, I bought 2 bloody expensive earrings. Sabi ng guard sa akin after, "Ma'am don't be in the queue next time you comeback. Just come straight to me".
    Sa Marina Bay Sands naman, I went to look for necklace kasi I bought na mga 2 earrings as Orchard Toad. Di ako pinapansin mg mga staff at ang guard iba ang tingin. So, I went straight sa accessories area. Tumawag ko ang staff at sabi ko I'm looking for necklace. Aba at nag aalangan at sinabihan uli ako ng, "It's expensive" kaya same dialogue naman ang sagot ko. Then may nagustuhan ako at sabi sa akin limited edition daw 8 pcs lang sa Asia. Sabi ko, "I don't care. I like it and I'll buy it, CASH". Ayun at dinala kami sa VIP Room inalok ng drinks while waiting for our receipt.
    True, naka shorts, tshirt and Havaiianas lang.

    1. To avoid any hassles from these high end stores, I simply asked my PA to book for an appointment so I can enjoy myself shopping without any troubles from low educated Sales Associate. Never turned up unannounced.

  21. Husband experienced the same sa Espadrille in Podium. He asked for available sizes of a pair worth 3,500 as his anniversary gift for me. Sabi ni ateng saleslady, “hindi naka sale yan ha”. Sumagot ang mister ko, “buti naman, ikuha mo ako ng size 7 sa army green, brown, cream, dark blue tsaka pink. Cash.” 🤣 Hindi kasing magal ng LV ni Chona, pero, hello, kapwa Pinoy, sa pinoy na mall, sa pinas!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Flowers LANG damage control ng LV? Goes to show how little they indeed think of Pinoys. If she had used her star power and it had gone viral, irate liberal americans could really tarnish the brand’s image and drive sales down

  23. Iba pag Regine Velasquez ka! Makapangyarihan! Good job LV!

  24. Sa Venice, di ako pinansin ng Sales Rep inside an LV store. I understood coz I looked tired and unimpressive due to walking around the city the whole day. Meaning, hindi ako maporma na mukhang rich pero madami akong pera.
    I don't dwell on it

  25. Ang mga pinoy din mismo numero uno mang decriminate kahit sa kapwa nila pinoy. Dito na nga lang sa pilipinas, di ka igi greet kung feeling nila di ka naman bibili talaga, tapos may papasok na foreigner, todo greet!

  27. Never ko na experience ang discrimination kasi di ako pumapasok sa high end stores. Hanggang Coach Michael Kors lang ako. Pero pag wala talaga pambili bibili na lang ako ng taro bubble tea with tapioca. At least di ako umuwing luhaan busog pa ako.

  28. The sad part is if it wasn't someone of stature as Regine Velasquez, it would be just brushed off.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sa totoo lang Regine is more influential than she thinks she is. May mga reactions siya that reveals it. Siguro may fear of becoming a monster or getting criticized kaya she always tries to minimize or brush off compliments. Observation lang.

    1. Totoo. I've been on both ends as a customer and a sales associate but I never look down on anyone. My customers always thank me for treating them nicely so as a customer myself, I always expect the same. Good on Regine. Imbes na magtaray, nag-movie moment na lang. She saved her dignity while maintaing her class.
