    1. parang nangyari kay Ms Maricel Soriano na di pinansin sa LV store sa abroad mas inentertain yung nga western kaya namakyaw ng LV bags, nganga ang mga sales person doon.

    2. Ako naman ang experience ko pag pumasok ako ng store me nakabuntot na palaging saleslady at kung ano ano inoofer o pinepresent kahit na hindi naman ako bibili. And lalaki ako hindi babae. Example; SG: Para po sa gf or wife? Me: ah hindi Single. SG: baka gusto niyo po ito (Product) unisex po siya. Me: ah balik na lang ako.

    5. Say during that time, mga 200k-500k siguro ang 20 pairs of shoes niya before going back sa LV store. Pride that cost her that amount before.

    8. THEY SHOULD BUY FROM A DIFFERENT STORE AND GO BACK TO THE STORE WHERE THEY GOT DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AND END UP NOT BUYING FROM THEM. KASI IF THEY BUY, MAY COMMISSION IYONG SALES ASSOCIATE!

      Delete
    9. True 4:23, she should have bought the boots from another LV shop. And sabay report na discriminated siya sa kabilang shop but she really loves the product. She just rewarded the SA's bad behaviour with commission. Swerteng maldiether!

    10. Parang scene lang sa ‘pretty woman’. Gayagaya ng kuwento hindi naman nangyari sa tunay na bujay ni regine. Ilusyunada. Hindi naman sila ganyan dito sa US. Ako ng nakatsinelqs pero nagrerespond mga salesclerk pag tinatanong ko as in kung ano request ay gawin naman nila. Pa-epic lang yang si regine akala nya di maalala ng mga tao yung julia roberts scene.

    3. Daming grammatical error ni Regine... like "wear A comfortable shoes", or "this shoes is..." pero ok lang, English is not our first language naman. 😆

      Nakakarelate din ako nung kabataan ko, mas gusto ko pa bumili ng sapatos kesa sa damit, to a point that my parents or siblings call me Imelda Marcos. HAHAHA

    4. Kayo na ang mayaman. Kung maka tacky.

    5. 2:43 hahaha, actually parehas sila ni Ogie, si Regine wrong grammar sa pagsasalita and sa writing niya, notice her captions on her IG posts. but its ok, understandable.

    6. anong mali dun sa wear a comfortable shoes? mali ba talaga?

      Delete
    7. 9:43 shoes, pants, shorts plural form kasi mga yan. So dapat “are”

    8. "Wear comfortable shoes" or "wear a comfortable pair of shoes" dapat

    9. Regine likes to say, “comft-able”, but it sounds so baduy & pasosy. Cringe...

    10. @2:36 PM - I think it's because of her dentures. Ganyan din magsalita mom ko and her entire upper set of teeth nakadentures. Some words my mom enunciates in a certain way na cringe worthy haha.

  3. Noon kase late 90s, early 2000s medyo malakas pa mag discriminate. Noon, pag nakita Asian ka (or Immigrant) they ignore you kala wala kang pambili. Pero now, ang pinakamalakas bumili ng mga branded shoes/bags are Asians (pinoy included).

    1. Kaya cgro grabe makapamili ang mga Asian kasi dinidiscriminate. Lol

    2. Papano wala ng pambili mga Amerikano wala na ngang mga bahay yung mga nasa LA 16+trillion dollars ba Naman utang ng bansa niyo kaya nga dito na sa Asia nagpopromote ng movie ang Hollywood mga celebs na lang ang me afford sa mga Rodeo Drive at mga Asians na yumaman gamit ang DEBT RESERVE NA DOLLAR NA WALANG VALUE! Na pagdating ng panahon e tulad ng sa London at LA mga bilyonaryo na lang ang mga me ari ng mga lupain na sinimulan na ni Villar sa Rice Tariff niya na ang tutoong layunin e iconvert mga palayan sa mga subdivision!

      Delete
    3. Maski naman dito sa ibang stores sa Pinas. Bibili kami ng mother ko ng blouse sa isang store, dahil siguro hindi sosyalin ang damit namin, hindi helpful yung staff. Tinanong ko kung may hindi cotton na blouse, wala raw. Pero pagtingin ko dun sa isang rack, meron pala.

      Delete
    4. Totoo,na experience ko yan.Sabi ng sales lady sa akin,are you going to buy because people like you do not buy.Ay kinrompal ko ng mga credit cards.Which one do you want me to use?

      Delete
    5. oo nga, i believe this and regime’s story. just wait pa till you reach a certain age, wala na masyado pansin sa yo. little do they know ikaw pala yung may pers.

      Delete
    6. Next time that you are not served well by the sale staff, make a complain to the management. Go to the customer service counter and ask for the manager, demand for the manager and not a sales clerk. Report the unruly behavior of their personnel. Of it just a small store and it is in a mall , report the bad treatment to the mall administration office.

      Delete
    7. Yes ang lakas talaga ng racial discrimination during 90s and early 2000s. Even Regine sanay na sanay na siya madiscriminate. Kinekwento nga niya yung mga naranasan niya during her Asian music stint... Bawala daw sabihin na Pilipino sya

      Delete
    8. 12:50 not sure if I agree completely...a lot of americans don't buy designer because they're more lowkey than us asians. Protestant culture sila especially yung mga WASP, they'd rather spend on travel or other valuable things, or they invest the money. The kardashians and youtube influencers might be changing that culture, but most old school americans tend to be lowkey about wealth and treat others as equals regardless of socioeconomic status, unfortunately nasisira na yun ng current political climate/racial tensions. I'm a part time tindera at a rich neighborhood in NY and countless celebrities at mayayamang tao na ang bumili sa amin, wala ka makikita na nagfaflaunt ng designer items at di mo malalaman na napakayaman nila hanggang magbayad sila with a centurion card (although the wallstreet people have that aggressive, no-nonsense, borderline predatory behavior so you'll know who they are). I noticed na kultura natin ang maging judgemental when it comes to things, parang may inaassociate tayong status sa mga material na bagay. Ang tita ko na umuwi sa pilipinas na snob because she was wearing plain clothes at a mall and she had an old phone, they even condescendingly asked for an ID when she tried to pay using her credit card, tapos biglang respectful when they saw her NY license. I've also seen countless filipinos here in the US ruined by that same mentality, mga literal na nababaon sa utang but would still go for designer items for the status boost, or ang reactionary response if they feel disrespected in a store is to buy expensive stuff to rub it in the salespersons' faces, regardless if they could afford to do so or not (in reality they're as judgemental as each other). I've heard it's even worse sa west coast na literal na titingnan ka mula ulo hanggang paa ng mga kapwa mo pinoy. It's ridiculous, alam na pag naka lacoste na shirt, mk/coach monogram na belt/bag, tapos yung tory burch(dont even know if i spelled that right) na flats/slipper na kitang kita ang logo, at syempre yung LV hahahaha. At take note, sabay sabay na suot lahat yan plus apple phone at watch.

    9. Dun daw kasi sa napasok kong department store madsmi daw Pilipino ang nagtatrabaho hindi customers.E nu naman ngayon,afford din naman ng mga Pilipino.

    10. I believe less ang discrimination sa California compara sa New York Kung mamimili ka sa mga luxury store. Maraming Asians sa California, at mga professionals pa (kasama na mga Pinoys).

    11. San mo naman napulot yang data mo na asians ang pinakamalakas bumili ng branded?!!

      Delete
    12. Hmm...madami na articles about that 12:29, specifically mga chinese mainlanders ang malakas bumili ng designer apparently.

      Delete
    13. 12:50 parang medyo mali ang pagkakaintindi mo sa 16T it’s not an utang as in cash. Also, if you really pay attention Americans are low key and not brand conscious (except sa mga celebrities siyempre) Pero they spend money sa ibang bagay. Pero yung mga luho like bags or shoes hindi. Like my husband and his family hindi sila brand conscious pero kapag oras ng vacation asahan mo yan talagang bongga.

      Delete
    14. 12:29 may friend akong sales lady sa luxury store sa paris. Mostly daw buyer ng luxury goods ang chinese.

      Delete
    15. Dito sa UAE, particularly Dubai, chinese mainlanders ang malakas bumili ng signature brands. Kaya jgayon, mostly ng hinahanap na sales associates for signature brands ay Chinese din dhail6malakas talaga market ng high end brands sa mga chinese. They even come in groups, wearing branded items. Na ultimo ung nakasabit sa telepono nila, signature brands.

      Delete
    16. 6:24 is so on point.

      Delete
    17. 6:24, agree ako sa iyo. Ang mga local Americans, hindi mahilig mag-flaunt ng material na gamit nila. Makikita mo na lang minsan.

      Ginagamit nila ang pera nila sa travel at sa stocks. Ang mga Pilipino, gastos lahat sa branded na gamit at sa casino.

      Tapos ang mga Pilipino magtatanong kung paano daw na-aafford ng mga Americans na iyon ang travel at stocks and investments nila.

      Ang mga Filipino-Americans naman ngayon na lumaki ng US ay hindi na masyadong mahilig sa branded na gamit unless na na-influence ng magulang at kamag-anak nila na mas importante iyon.

      Delete
    18. 6:43 original kaya mga yun? Hehe dito sa NY pag nakakakita ako ng chinese na puros flashy brand ang suot from head to toe eh hindi na ako naniniwala na authentic lahat yun😜🤭. Can you blame me🤷🏻‍♀️

    19. The point is nobody should care 9:47, but we filipinos care too much.

    20. susmiyo, walang yang mga branded na shop sa divisoria, lahat ng isukat mo palong palo sa katawan mo at bagay na bagay daw, according to tindera, di lang yan, kada hawak mo ng damit, may mga sizes pa daw sila sa loob at ibang designs. haha

      Delete
    21. 6:24 ang binanggit ko e yung LA at London hindi NY. Kaya nga hindi na nagpopromote mga Hollywood celebs sa US mismo kungdi lumilipad pa dito sa Asia dahil HOMELESS na mga tao sa LA! Kahit sa LONDON Russian Billionaire na me ari nung mga real estate dun. News yun at nakablog sa mga youtube!

  4. Hahah nakakatuwa. Naalala ko tuloy yung kwento naman ni giselle sanchez ng pumasok sa LV sa isang store sa europe. Nadiscriminate din sya kase may bitbit syang fake lv. Tapoa ininsulto pa na ang mga pinoy daw katulong. Ending, bumili sya para ipamukha sa sales exec na afford din nating mga Pinoy ang signature brands.

    1. Why wear a fake LV in the first place if she can afford the real thing.

    2. Kakaloka naman si tita giselle hahahaha nakakatawa pero bat naman kasi sya magbibitbit ng fake lv sa loob pa talaga ng store?

    3. Dapat lang siyang mapahiya! Pumasok pa siya sa store na yung dala niya e pekeng ginayang produkto nila! Yabang na lang yung bumili pa talaga siya.

      Delete
    4. Kung pupunta ka sa lv tapos may dala ka na fake na lv nakakatuwa ba yon sa kanila. Ang talino ni giselle sa ibang bagay pero napaka-thoughtless ng ginawa nya.

      Delete
    5. If this is true. Giselle deserves the treatment. Why wear fake and enter a legit store. Pwede nga syang ipahuli kasi bawal ang fake.

      Delete
    6. Mali ang kwento ni 12.40 walang dalang fake si giselle that time. She was discriminated upon simply because she was asian

      Delete
    7. Mali po yang story na yan! Hindi siya pinapasok sa LV store kasi they thought she's just a maid. Kasi she did a shows there and a pageant entitled Maid in London. Wala siyang dalang fake LV's , isa pa when you go to Europe with fake LV's or any luxurious item in their boutique pwede ka hulihin worst ipakulong.

      Delete
    8. 8:09 Tama yang kwento mo. Ang isa pang kwento nilait daw si Giselle at ang mga Pilipino na tayong mga Pilipino raw mahilig bumili ng fake saka sinabihan nga si Giselle na Filipina maid daw sya.

      Delete
    9. Niwala naman kayo ke Giselle 9:33? E super eksaherada yun.

      Delete
    10. 8:09 7:22 i watched giselles interview, sya mismo nag kwento. Fake ang dala nyang LV. Malayo lalang sya, papasok palang ng store, alam na ng SA na fake bag nya. Kaya nung nadiscriminate sya at ang pagiging pinoy nya, she asked for thr most expensive bag but it was way too expensive, di nya afford kaya she asked for the 2nd most expensive bag at un ang binili nya watch her interview sa youtube. She herself said she was carrying a fake LV

    1. Depress is a valid word sometimes used to convey extreme sadness or down spirit. Iba sa clinical depression.

    2. Correct. But what So you expect from Chona? Tacky as ever.

    3. Ikaw naman, pwede naman nya gamitin yun, ayun sa meaning eh na dispirited or dejected sya, ayun sa cambridge dictionary, feeling unhappy or without hope, sabi nga ni meme reg, beri light, di naman nagtagal,coz she got the lv item that she wanted, di naman porket na depress ka eh kailangan pang matagalan to the point eh hirap kang makaget over,madaming scenario sa ganyan jusq

      Delete
    4. 12:43 depression comes in many forms, di lang clinical depression. Pwede karing madepress sa maliit na bagay. Ako nga nadedepress ng walang dahilan dahil sa hormones, lalo na pag papalapit na period ko. Tama si 12:49

      Delete
    5. Agree cos iisa lang naman ang meaning ng word na depressed sa mga panahong ito lalo na sadito satin. Kahit pa ba sabihin iba ang meaning sa dictionary.

    7. You can say "upset"

    8. Tama, OA lang talaga. To get depressed over some un-necessary material thing shows more about her vanity and materialism than anything else.

    9. OA lahat na lang dapat politically correct term. Ikaw pag nakaranas ng racial discrimination? Di ka ba mapapahiya at madadown for a while. She was just conveying the feeling.

    2. Nangyari din yan kay Selena (Latina singer na pinatay) gusto nyang isukat yung gown sa dept. store pero ayaw ipasukat ng sales lady or store manager ba yun. Tapos meron isang staff na nakakilala sa kanya, nagsisigaw yung staff na nandon si Selena kaya nagkagulo ang buong mall. Hindi akalain ng hitad na managera na super sikat na singer pala ang customer nila.

    6. Agree ako diyan sa Crazy Rich Adian's na movie , nakakataas ng morals ngga Asians. Hindi katulad ng mga movies ni Brilliantes Mendoza na pinapalabas sa ibang bansa na puro kahirapan, squatter areas, patayan , droga at prostitution ang pinapakita sa Pilipinas. Hindi nakakataas ng pagkatao nating mga Pilipino.

      Delete
  7. I hardly believe that. First of all, how can you carry shopping bags with 20 pairs of shoes in them. Assuming 2 boxes can fit in a bag, those are 10 large and bulky bags she needs to carry. Ang bigat2x noon and I doubt all 10 shopping bags will fit both her arms. Kung hindi ka man pinansin, it is not discrimination, it's not hard to ask for help kung hindi ka napapansin, as SAs need to take care of the clients they have already committed to, otherwise it is rude na pabayaan nalang to accommodate her. She must have been unlucky on that store for not being allowed to try the shoes kasi as far as I know, these high end stores nowadays prioritize Asian clients (esp. Chinese) kasi nga sila yung bumibili talaga. I have had my shares of shopping sprees at fortunately, kahit gusgusin yung istura ko, hindi ko pa naman nfeel madiscriminate, all you have to do is ask. Huwag feeling entitled na SAs should prioritize you as soon as you march in the store.

    7. Dami mong alam. Di ba pwedeng may assistant sya? Di naman sya pupuntang store mag-isa! At discrimination yun, talamak discrimination sa mga asians at blacks noon. Di mo ata narinig ang istorya na ultimo si oprah na discriminate sa isang lv store sa europe. Ayaw sa kanya ipahawak ang bag. Akala wala syang pambili kc di sya kilala.

    12. Baks late 90s to 2001 daw kasi ito nangyari. Hindi NOWADAYS. Ibang iba ang panahon noon. Talamak pa ang racial and gender diacrimination. Di pa masyado accepted yang mga equality movement ek ek. Ok na?

    13. Did you even watch? She asked the SA if she can try the shoes on pero nirefuse sya, even telling her they don’t have her size!!! Pero pagbalik nya saka sya lang inentertain kasi may dala syang designer items! Di ba outright discrimination yun!!?!!!! Okay ka lang nanggigil ako sayo eh!

    18. Diba sinabi nya na only when she walked back with all her shoe purchases did she feel attended to decently? All the more na feelingera lang talaga c Ate Chona at pinabitbit pa talaga sa mga PAs nya ang shopping bags nya to make pamukha the SA. Imagine isang battalion silang pumasok sa NM at bumalik ulit sa LV dala2x pinamili nya, I find that pretty pathetic, actually. If she wanted to make a point she didn't have to leave the boutique, kuha xa 20 different shoes from a different SA and prove to the previous one that she can buy the whole store including that runway selection she was so eager to get. LOL.

  8. Ahahaha, I'm glad she showed them! It's crazy how some sales people judge you. I'm sure most of us had similar experiences. They can't even be bothered until you show how fat your wallet is, or that black card. 😉

      Delete
    6. Hmm, that implies na may dapat kalagyan ang ibang tao relative to yourself, so bakit masama sila if they think the same way, na may paglalagyan ka sa kanila? I'm not trying to be offensive or anything, I'm just trying to understand both sides...did you feel undermined at times dahil when you try to approach sales associates in the past to ask for assistance they blatantly ignored you, or you didn't ask for help but wanted to be approached and assisted cause you believe na that is the minimum courtesy when it comes to sales associates and customers? Maybe they wanted to give you space and let you browse first? Maybe yung "mukhang mayaman" na nakakasabay mo they see that person in the regular and alam nila na bibili yun if they push them a little bit more with sales talk? Maybe the sales associate is a jerk to everybody and it had nothing to do with you or how others perceive you? The assumption that they'll feel slighted if you rub it in their faces that you bought from a 'rival' store is pretty dangerous, cause in the end you are the one who loses money, hence you give them power. Regardless if sa kanila napunta yung pera or not, the bottomline ay they drove you to react/do something in response to how they made you feel about yourself...those little power trips have more adrenaline rush than making a sale.

Kung ayaw paassist then we moved away and tell them that if they need any help we're just a few steps behind from them. Just tell the SAs respectfully that you're just looking around.

Pumapasok pala ako kasi wala lang gusto ko lang iexperience and makita ano mga nasa loob.

  16. As an accomplished celebrity as she is, she should have known that her worth was more than just a pair of shoes. Binalikan at binili pa talaga ang sapatos kahit na nainsulto na xa ano? So much for the Pretty Woman scene.

    1. Lol true. Sana sa iba na lang sha bumili nagka commission pa talaga yung SA. 😂

      Nangyari na to sa kin. Pumasok ako sa Saint Laurent na naka work backpack, jeans, shirt and matching lunchbox. Bibili sana ako ng bag. Nag-hi ako sa SA. Tiningnan ako mula ulo hanggang paa tapos hindi nag-hi back, bumalik lang sa pagsusulat ng kung ano. Hanggang makaalis ako (nag thank you p ako ha) wala, di ako pinansin.

      Paguwi ko, binili ko yung bag na bibilin ko sana sa kanya sa Saint Laurent online.

  17. Buti nalang mas open na mga tao ngayon especially on the retail industry. I find LV salespeople friendlier than Chanel's at parang allergic sila when you ask for the price of the items. Nasa tao na yan kung mag papa-apekto ka, juice ko, material things lang yan. Try nya kayang magpunta ng Hermes at magtanong ng Birkin, sasabihin no kaagad, but if she stayed longer, and saw another customer being offered of it, paano kaya magrereact si Chona? hahahahahah

    2. Really??? Actually Louis Vuitton stores have a reputation for discrimination. Tingnan mo na lang yung reviews nila. Parang marketing tactic nila so you would do ego buying

      Delete
    3. 5:49. That's not my point, I know she can afford it, but in the spirit of "I felt discriminated" ako. Have you been to Hermes and straight out asked for a Birkin? They'd automatically say no. Like all the time. Either dapat kilala mu na ang associate or swerte ka lang talaga. The store is known to heavily profile clients they are offering the Birkin too unless Oprah level ka sa popularity, then you can call them out publicly and receive an apology, otherwise, wala silang pakialam and that is exactly the kind of business I am not taking part of. No one, let alone a bag/a pair of shoes should make you feel less of a person or make you feel depressed.

    3. 2:23 Ikaw dapat magcomprehend. Taga NYC ka ba? There's no Neiman Marcus in 5th Ave! The only Neiman Marcus na merong LV na katabi is in Roosevelt field mall. Pero syempre di mo alam yan, kasi di ka taga NY.

    4. @4:07 agree. Si 2:23 needs to comprehend. And yes di sya taga NYC. Regine referred to store near big LV as Neiman Marcus which is not. Assuming it’s the flagship on 5th Ave. it’s Bergdorf.

  35. Actually, sa US, unlike Philippine malls, walang tutulong sayo unless you ask for help. I went to the Philippines and everyone was trying to help me when I was just trying on shoes, isusuot pa nga sa akin. I found it weird. Anyway, thought I’d point out the difference and maybe she wasn’t discriminated against sa niemann marcus pero definitely sa LV. Bastos sila.

  37. I dunno mga beks di ako mahilig sa designer pero I have a feeling na if magdedepend lang ang mga sales associate sa hourly wage kahit high end store pa they'll prolly end up making just a little bit higher than minimum wage, so they're prolly coming in everyday with their head in the game trying to build clientle para makacomission, hence the profiling. I mean, can't blame them, retail jobs are crap a lot of times, very rare at swerte if you don't get beaten down by that type of job everyday. Imagine having a job that requires you to lie and take advantage of people all the time, and at the same time be at their beck and call hanggang i give up nila ang pera nila. They don't do it cause they're bad people, it's just inherent to the job they have...they gotta survive somehow. Sometimes you just gotta be thankful you are not in that situation, because that's how people cope. Yung mga bumibili ng mahal dyan just to show that they could afford it...uhm...I'm sorry, but I feel like you'll be the exact same kind of person who would sneer at "plain" looking customers if the roles were switched.

  41. Happened to me as well, wala daw yung style na hinahanap ko so umalis akong luhaan. Ewan ko ba pero parang hinatak ako ng katawan ko pabalik sa LV store, then suddenly nakita ko yung isang customer, tinatry nya yung bag na gusto ko. Good thing hindi nya binili, so ako ang bumili. Ganyan ata talaga sila pag Asian ang customer, akala nila walang pera!

  47. Yong sinabi ni ms. Regine na bumili sya ng 20 pairs of shoes sa neiman Marcus na malapit sa LV. Wala pong neiman Marcus na malapit sa LV store .Bergdorf Goodman yong store na malapit sa LV. Yong neiman Marcus sa NYC ay NASA Hudson yard na bagong open last March this year at yong isa ay NASA short hills, new Jersey. I'm working at neiman Marcus until now dito sa roosevelt field, garden city long island new york.

  49. If she's upset with the treatment in LV, why did she come back? Vivian in Pretty Woman actually came back looking awesome and with all her shopping bags but she just told the saleslady that she made a big mistake. And did not buy from that store! That's how you win. In Regine's scenario, guess who won? Vuitton, because they made money off her. 😂
