ABS-CBN TV Patrol: Malu Fernandez Resigns

Just a few hours ago, while we were having our dinner our TV set was tuned-in to the ABS-CBN's TV Patrol News. One of the featured news caught my attention. It was about the resignation of Malu Fernandez from being a Manila Standard columnist.

Below is that particular ABS-CBN's TV Patrol News that caught my attention. Already in Youtube courtesy of kukote:


Who is Malu Fernandez? If you ask me? I should say I do not know. I just heard her name in that news while ago. But even my curiosity wanted to know what she wrote that triggers outrage to a lot of people, however, I am not interested to know who she is.

Below are the articles that Malu wrote which create controversies online. And causes outrage to a lot of our fellow OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers).

A Manila Standard columnist, Malu Fernandez, who wrote an article entitled “From Boracay to Greece” and published in the People Asia magazine. (Sad to Say this link from tingog.com show a result of a "403 or forbidden error"). This is an excerpt from People Asia Magazine issued last June 2007 where the controversial article published:

However I forgot that the hub was in Dubai and the majority of the OFWs (overseas Filipino workers) were stationed there. The duty-free shop was overrun with Filipino workers selling cell phones and perfume. Meanwhile, I wanted to slash my wrist at the thought of being trapped in a plane with all of them.While I was on the plane (where the seats were so small I had bruises on my legs), my only consolation was the entertainment on the small flat screen in front of me. But it was busted, so I heaved a sigh, popped my sleeping pills and dozed off to the sounds of gum chewing and endless yelling of “HOY! Kumusta ka na? At taga sann ka? Domestic helper ka rin ba?” Translation: “Hey there? Where are you from? Are you a domestic helper as well?” I though I had died and God had sent me to my very own private hell.On my way back, I had to bravely take the economy flight once more. 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 Jo Malone evaporated into thin air.
And on her attempt to pacify the growing outrage, Malou Fernandez wrote another article but this one put her to an aggravating situation even more.
As I type this, I’d like you to know that it’s not about whining, complaining and bitching but just stating the facts. Just recently, I wrote a funny article in my magazine column and my friends thought it was hilarious. It was humorous and quite tongue-in-cheek, or at least I thought so, until the magazine got a few e-mails from people who didn’t get the meaning of my acerbic wit. The bottom line was just that I had offended the reader’s socioeconomic background. If any of these people actually read anything thicker then a magazine they would find it very funny. Most people don’t get the fact that they need bitches like me to shake up their world, otherwise their lives would be boring and mediocre. I obviously write for the a certain target audience and if what I write offends you, just stop reading.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!

Well, I do not want to judge Malu for the reason that I do not know her personally. But, my sentiment goes to our fellow OFWs. Not only to them but to us Filipinos too because it reflects what most of us felt. When the moment I heard that news on TV my immediate remark is: " Hoy, kahit na mamahaling imported perfume yang gamit mo, pango ka pa rin!" In english (hope it is the right translation) "Hey, even if you are using the most expensive imported perfume, your nose is still flat!"

For your easy reference here are the lists of respective blogs or websites that posted a cursed reactions to Malu's articles:
