1. I know this girl who has all designer label clothes and bags and naka iPhone 4. She is a former beauty queen and a model and a very known party girl. She hangs out only with the rich kids and every weekend, you can see her clubbing or at the bars. We belonged to the same org and one day we decided to have our meeting at their house. At first hesitant siya but eventually gave in. She looks really rich and all and it was a shock to us all that she lives in the squatter-ish part of the city, and her house had holes in the ceiling and it was leaking. Their bathroom is outside the house na parang hanggang dibdib lang ang walls. We eventually found out that all the money her sister sent home to have their house fixed from working abroad, she spent it on all the designer stuff and the iPhone 4. Ang mas kawawa is her lola becausenhe bedroom sa second floor, yung walls have holes and the ceiling was starting to cave in. May sakit pa naman ang lola niya. After that, my perspective about her totally changed.
2. Back in high school, there was this girl who invites herself to the outings ng barkada ko. She would brag about the riches they have and how big her allowance is. Nung bagong labas yung Nokia 3210, one of my classmates had it. Since phones were a no-no in school, she left it in her bag as we went to a separate room for our computer classes. When we came back, nawala na ang phone. So all our bags were checked. The phone and wallet was found in that classmate's bag and she got suspended.
3. There is this girl from our city who had a very rich bf from Manila. The guy spoiled her to death, gave her designer bags and iPhones, BlackBerry's and an iPad. Because the guy's circle of friends were mostly celebrities, she were also friends with them and flaunts it on Facebook and Twitter. Then she became a "designer". She got pregnant and personally told me that she and the guy had a civil wedding in Manila. Then a few months after she gave birth, they broke up. She told me she caught her husband having sex with his business partner, but her story changed when she talked to my friend. I bumped into the guy on a trip and asked him how's married life and his response "di ko pinakasalan yun! Psychotic ***** yun! Ninakawan kami ng pera tas ngayon andami niyang sinasabi na i cheated on her? Di kami kasal at di nangyari yung mga sinasabi niya!". And now, my aunt told me recently she has numerous lawsuits daw because of money.
4. Another girl from my city sells high end gadgets, watches, bags and apparel online. One of my friend's sister bought 2 iPhone 4's from her and gave her P80k. Ang dumating lang is the box for the iPhone with a nailcutter inside. When confronted, she said complain lang daw to FedEx. And when they did, FedEx said when they scanned it, nailcutter lang daw talaga ang laman ng boxes. Sayang naman the girl because she's so pretty but sobrang materialistic that she has to dupe people so she can buy designer stuff and gadgets.
-at mas nakakahiya yung model na fashionista. iisipin ko na lang ...
baka dahil na rin sa trabaho niya, kaya kailangan niya talagang mamili ng designer items at wag palampasin lahat ng parties,.. pero ang mali niya dun eh di naman niya pera yung ginamit niya sa luho niya, at kawawa naman yung taong naghirap sa pera na yun para dun sa lola niya at grabe naka-tiis siyang tumira sa ganung environment. di man lang niya naisip na mag-apartment or budget condo.
-saka yung sa married couple... kasalanan ng BF yun eh. sinanay niyang ganun... so ayun, malamang namroblema siya nung todo nung super-huthot na sa kaniya si girl. nagkataon baka "tight budget" -kasi meron na silang baby. so bago yung luho-kay baby muna mapupunta expenses. sayang din yun, nagpakasal na sila.
-yung highschool days... naman na story. grabe ang mga may sakit na "klepto" di namimili ng status sa buhay.
Pag minamata yung mga kapareho nya ng ugali o yung mga kapareho nya ng status sa buhay. Kasabihan nya, "hindi puwedeng maging mean ang mga poor. Pang-elite lang ang pagiging mean". Kaya sya nagpapaka-mean kasi feeling nya elite sya.
What kind of palengke logic is that? Pang PSBA? lol.
I really don't understand what do we mean when we say "social climber", honestly... maybe because I do not look into any social status, I look into the human quality with higher regard...
Pag ang mahirap ba is trying to imitate the lifestyle of the rich ones, social climber na siya non?
what if yung mayaman is trying to live like the poor people, ano tawag doon? social descending? hehe
bakit pag yung mayaman ang nanggagaya, we consider it noble, pero pag yung mahirap, we consider it kahiyahiya?
what about yung mga pinoy na nag papakawestern style or korean, japanese etc. social climber din ba sila?
Isn't it that moving from one stage to another is natural, and shall we not all strive to move from one stage to another? it is the way to experience life. real status is not determined by material things, but by the true way of life. status is only in the mind but in reality there is none, we are all equally free to chose the what, who, and how of our life. if you look into the concept of "social climber" in a bad way, we must not forget, that some times in our journey in this life we are all social climber at some point...
sa tingin ko kaya lang pumapangit ang tingin sa mga social climber dahil katulad nung sinabi ng isa, padala ng sister niya para pampaayos ng bahay ibibili mo ng luho mo?in the first place nga hindi dapat nagpapadala ang ate niya kung walang nakikitang kahit picture na naaayos yung bahay at may pinupuntahan ang pera, yung iba naman nangungutang at hindi nagbabayad para lang masunod ang luho, at bakit ka tatambay ng starbucks sayang ang oras, nakakainip
Has Twitter and tweets are 3 to 5 minutes ("I'm eating", "I just finished eating", "Wow! Busog ako!")
Listening to "hipster" bands
Di naman "artist" pero tumatambay sa Cubao Expo
Tingnan mo sa mukha.. kung mukhang isda tapos mga designer clothes.
^ goldfish, Hipsterdom is the opposite of social climbing. Slumming nga tawag sa hipster. Rich people who pretend to be poor. Most people who like indie music are rich people na ayaw maki level sa mainstream.Social climbers tend to like what celebs like, i.e. mainstream, chart music.
