How to distinguish real or wannabe "sosyals"(high society)

etnabAxeRTetnabAxeRT PEx Rookie ⭐
Siguradong mga kabilang sa alta de ciudad yung may mga yacht, private jet, exotic cars, expensive villas.
But how would you distinguish the real ones from the social climbers pag nakita mo lang sa public place without their toys?
Is it the bling that they wear?
Their clothes?
Manners and etiquette?
The food they eat?
When they're very articulate in English?
Their flawless radiant skin?
Ilang beses na kasi akong napagkakamalang mayaman or from a prominent family pag umaattend ako ng mga events or fund raising. Middle class lang naman ang tingin ko sa sarili ko. Saka kahit Greenhills ang minsang sinusuot kong damit, akala nila galing US at original. :lol:

  • Impossible to tell by appearance lang. I know several people in the middle-upper class who speak, dress and eat like high society people. Some wear Prada sunglasses, carry Balenciagas and regularly eat at upscale BGC places at the expense of exhausting their monthly income without room for savings. This is quite common among the young professionals.

    When you start talking to them I guess there can be hints that one is a social climber. They often name-drop big names, they often boast about upscale parties they attended and there's really an "active effort" to keep a high society image. Conversations are usually without substance, comprising mostly of gossip about other people lang.
  • Wannabe-"sosyals": Show off sa social media. Post nang post ng pics ng bagong biling gamit, nice places they hang out/dine at, etc.

    True "sosyals": They don't need the need to prove anything. Hindi sila KSP sa social media.
  • It's infectious. When one person posts about his/her dining experiences, shopping and traveling, another person will think that this is lifestyle of regular people. As a result, more people try to imitate the lifestyle despite it being clearly beyond his/her earning capacity.

    Yung mga wannabes, sila yung mahilig magflaunt ng kanilang "riches"
    Sila yung mahilig pumila ng matagal para lang makapasok sa mga high end restos to look social.
    Sila yung mahilig sa English kahit wrong grammar at pilit ang accent.

    Mga certified, sila yung simple lang. Wala arte sa katawan.

    real sosyal: they have photos that show who they were with.

    pa-sosyal: they have photos that emphasize what they have with.

    It's about class and when I say class it's not related to material things.

    Pa-sosyals never admit they are one because they believe they are really sosyal. :lol:

    Ika nga kapag nilublob mo ang beki sa drum ng tubig at tanungin mo kung lalaki ba siya or bakla, ang isasagot niya ay sirena.

    Kanya-kanyang trip lang yan. Let them live in their own fantasy world basta hindi nila ninakaw ang pera nila.

    duh... in a country where a high majority is poor... middle class is sosyal!

    a middle class person in philippine society would have a bit of exposure to the semi rich to be influenced by those behaviors...

    now try hanging out with the ultra rich that have been rich for generations... iba na talaga ang pagka level up ng usapin at mga prinsipyo ng angkan ng mayayaman... hard to tell by just looking at physical attributes and casual conversation...

    you will usually see it once you get into some sort of competition... iba laru nila... they play not to win... they play just because they enjoy watching you lose.

    If they show-off na sosyal sila, then hindi talaga. Yes, even artistas.

    Kung yung chill lang na parang normal lang sa kanila, yun ang sosyal talaga :lol:

    Marami akong napupuna na sosyal at pasosyal dito sa PEX, at kung di ninyo alam iyon ay sa kanilang paggamit ng mga salitang lansangan at mga salitang pag banggit sa mga pagaari nila para ipaalam sa kapwa Pexer na mas angat sila sa karamihan sa pamamagitan ng kanilang ginagawa..na hindi naman pang araw araw yun ang mga pasosyal.

    At duon sa talagang sosyal makikita at mapupuna mo sila sa kilos at pananamit at paggamit ng mga salitang kalye ay wala sa bokabularyo nila.. at hindi nila pinupurbahang puntahan ang mga balitang magagandang lugar..dahil mayroon silang lugar na talagang nagtitipon tipon sila para mag kape at mag almusal..siguro mga apat o limang lugar lang ang kanilang parating pinupuntahan..ika nga ay suki na sila duon...halimbawang lugar ay sa Dusit Hotel duon makikita mo sila sa RJ place..o kaya sa Strumms..wala ng ibang pinupuntahan ang mga iyan kung hindi duon lang..

    At nakakahiya dahil hindi ka kilala ng mga waiter at waitress at magugulat ka na halos ng mga upuan ay naka-RESERVED dahil sa mga grupong sosyal..at para ding ginawa iyon para mailang pumunta ang mga pa-SOSYAL...sa ganoong lugar...:naughty:

    Kung ako ang tatanungin ninyo? ako po eh strike everywhere at anywhere...kahit kanino puwede akong maki halubilo..puwera ang mga pulitiko at pulitika..wala akong pakialam sa kanila..duon lang ako sa ring side...:naughty:

    It depends. There are people who are really earning a lot yet are show-offs. Sosyal talaga kung sosyal since they have the bank accounts and properties to show. These are often the newly rich or the children of the newly rich. They previously had humbles lives when suddenly their earning capacity increased. Some are trying to make a point to prove that they're on a different status already.

    The "chill" ones are usually the third generation. These are children born into wealth since birth. Since they have been used to living a life of luxury since birth they really have nothing to prove. Another thing that makes some of them humble is because they're aware that the family wealth will not last forever. Rarely does family wealth go beyond the third generation due to internal disputes and expansion of the family tree. In essence they're more on conservation of wealth na.
  • makikita mo talaga ang sino ang legit sa hindi

    -Yung mga taong walang wala sa umpisa at biglang nakahawak lang ng malaking pera. Most of this people have the tendency to exact "revenge" for their past life/people either directly or not, so they display it for being a show off and can do anything cuz they have the money (ex. Manny Pacquiao)

    - Yung mga legit is nahahati sa dalawa:

    1. Yung pinanganak sa wala pero nagsumikap at naaabot ang mataas na kinalalagyan nila habang nakaapak parin ang kanila paa sa lupa. Humble at di kelangan ipakita sa tao ang kanilang estado sa buhay. Karamihan dito malaki ang pagpapahalaga sa pera kaya di nagtatapon ng pera sa mga walang kwentang bagay.

    2. Mga anak mayaman, dahil sa kinagisnang buhay e wala na silang kelangang patunayan sa tao. Kung anu mang ginagawa nila e normal na sa kanila at di kinakelangan mag trying hard. Mga ganito e mga humble at ayaw ng sinasabihan silang mayaman at mapera dahil "it just so happens na I can afford it thats it"

    you want a trophy for feeding the lower class society ideas? :lol:

    does it take a special eye to differentiate between an average person and an altasociedad? people from all walks of life can become retail addicted and not every member of the altasociedad dress preppy or speak good english or have the social grace to boot the affluent lifestyle they were born with.

    i actually feel sorry for high society people. they have to live a certain way to protect themselves and avoid offending everyone. the kardashians are doing it right.

    it's funny how when rich people spend a lot of money to look poor, nobody has a problem but when poor people work their butt off to look rich, it's offensive :lol:

    :*)
  • There's nothing wrong with buying a Ferrari or a house at Forbes Park if it's within your means. What an absurd world it will be when those toiling hours at school or at the office can only keep their money in the bank and live a middle class lifestyle. If that's the case no one will go the extra mile to work or study hard anymore.
