sobrang materialistic na ba ang lipunan ngayon?

ang daming gastos, bakit kailangan sobrang pagka gastusan ang pasko, fiesta at iba pa isama rin ang handaan o birthday, kailangan bang laging bago ang mga damit mo dahil minsan nakikita raw sa damit ang respeto at nauunahan ng judgement. kailangan nga bang dapat latest ka sa mga gadgets ika nga sabi nga daw ni Brother Bo Sanches is, "kung gusto mo tumaas ang value mo dapat taasan mo rin ang luho mo parang ganun...!?

    It’s always been like that. You’re judged based on your social status and what you have. Everyone, including the lower class of society have the mindset that they have to have certain things or look a certain way to be acceptable and respected.  That’s why places like Divisoria exist.  They sell knockoffs to cater to this type of market.

    May konting shift from being materialistic to being narcissistic. Blame the social media. 

    People nowadays are willing to spend enormous amount of money for grand pre-nup/wedding, debut, anniversary etc... I have a former work colleague na gumastos ng malaki sa debut ng anak niya. The debut remind me of debut ng mga sikat na personalities, may program, nasa malaking venue, may fashion designers, make up artists, may videographers/photographers, may mga performers, may mga interviews. Parang ASAP LOL!

    we are beyond Materialistic. it is a GEN-X trait.



    we are now NARCISSISTIC. it is a MILLENNIAL trait.
    before it is all about "what i have" but now it is "who i am and look at what i am."

    May bagong hakbang ngayon tinatawag na MINIMALIST. Marami ngayon ay nagising na mali ang pagiging CONSUMERIST at MATERIALISTIC.

    Masarap ang minimalist. Walang gaanong tambak at kalat sa bahay dahil bili nang bili ng gamit! Bawas gastos pa kaya anuman ang kita ay napagkakasya!

    Subukin ninyo!

    Lumala definitely. Social media exposure.

    Pero nasa iyo naman kung magpapa apekto ka or hindi. Ang best mong gawin is to be a good example lalong lalo na sa mga kabataan at marunong ka dapat mag set ng limitations.

    In my experience, may mga workmates ako dati na payday to payday ang lifestyle pero nakapag Bali at Taiwan pa. Pero habang shinashare nila iyon at iniencourage ka nilang to do the same, nanghihingi sila ng ulam sa cafeteria at naghahanap ng free pizza galing sa mga bosses (even with subpar performance at work) maitawid likely ang gutom.

    F.O.M.O. iyan ang nangyayari.

    tama si panis at bunny.  bukod sa smatphone people are not into buying material things like watches, shoes, bags, clothes and even cars anymore. why?
    becsuse people gravitate to the internet, ang tao sa socmed na naglalagi. there's almost no place to display one's wordly material possessions in public haha.  they would rather share their personal interests and experiences like that fantastic island vacation, delicious food they eat, work related accomplishments, projects and promotions, relationships and how great/lousy their significant other is/was in IG, facebook and in other social media platforms

    I agree! Too much fear of missing out.

    One of my closest single friends, mahilig mag-travel. Ok sana kasi we’re both easily available for biglaang trips, and she’s patient looking out seat sales, etc. Kaya lang I’m not sure I wanna travel with her, kasi ang hilig nya sa picture-picture. She’s so conscious about her Instagram and I know that she really studies the spots to take photos at before she travels. That doesn’t sound fun to me. It sounds so contrived.

    Also, she’s a budget traveler; I like being leisurely. So yung mga 3-day trips tapos puro hostel ang booking at nabubuhay sa instant noodles during the trip, ayoko. I like taking my time and being comfortable. Hindi yung nagbabakasyon na nga lang ako, nahihirapan pa rin ako kasi I’m staying at a dorm type hostel na 1 bathroom to 10 persons ang sharing. I think traveling is best when you become like the locals -- eat what they eat, go where they go, experience and see the daily grind, etc. Hindi yung puro tourist spots lang pinupuntahan. 

    These are the things not seen on Instagram. Kasi the photos are so well-curated, di nalalaman if the person actually enjoyed the experience (which is the essence of traveling, in the first place) or he/she just satisfied some pressure to present a well-curated Instagram.

    Maraming ganyang tao lalo na babae sa socmed. Buti sana kung malaki ang kita nila or may passive income din sila. Priority muna is kung pano lumago ang pera sa bank kahit natutulog ka at makabili ng sariling bahay at sasakyan. Tapos nun pwede ka na magliwaliw Ako ang luho ko ngayon is travelling and eating out. Dati I admit medyo nahilig ako mangolekta ng sapatos na Jordans which I pay naman from my passive income & sideline. Same with my watches. I stopped na rin dahil wala ng space para paglagyan mga boxes ko at wala nang magandang desing ngayon. Bihira ko din naman nasusuot. Kaya travelling lang talaga hilig ko ngayon. Medyo mahilig akong mamili ng gadgets na dinadala ko naman when I travel. I'm planning to buy a DJI Osmo Pocket once it's available here para magamit ko to document our Bali vacation and future travels
    We love to try out different local food and culinary dishes. I'm not as adventurous as my gf  sa food. Sya kumain nung bugs and fried worms sa Bangkok. Kahit anong pilit nya sa kin di ko sinubukan, ok na ko sa mango sticky rice ko at pad thai. LOL
    Picky lang talaga ako sa hotel at lalo na sa pagkain. I want a hotel room that is spacious, has a breathtaking view, has superb service with great amenities. Never din ako namili ng abubot or kung anong bagay na di naman kelangan sa abroad at kahit dito. Magnets lang talaga iniipon ko at puno na yung fridge door ko sa Pinas. Minsan souvenir shirts lang for me and pasalubong ba din. Also yung mga local delicacies for pasalubong, sa airport na ko bumibili like few months ago in Bangkok.
    My gf usually do the shopping when we travel. Mahilig bumili ng designer bags, shoes and watches abroad especially pag nagaantay p kami ng flight namin sa loob ng airport. I don't mind naman kasi may budget naman kami para dun. Pero sinasabihan ko rin na hinay hinay sya, wag bili ng bili kung di nya kelangan.
    I just love taking photos of different places, having new experiences, food trip and outdoor activities ang kadalasan ginagawa ko pag nagttravel kami. I never scrimp on the hotel part, but I also never spend ridiculous amount of money to just to stay on one either. 
    Sa Klook ok magbook ng mga activities na available sa lugar na pupuntahan nyo.

    Generally speaking, why is this even a question? When fast trash fashion and information is at your fingertips, do you think it will generate spirituality in the society? 

    LOLOLOL. Get real. 
  • gladyskawaiigladyskawaii Dreamer ✭✭✭
    My inaanak sent me a message through fb and now ko lang nabasa lol. I didn’t reply because i don’t know what to reply. She just added me on fb 2 days ago.

  • pong_padourpong_padour Member ✭✭✭
    ^ jejemon ah. LOL
    Masaya na yan sa Cherry Mobile at jacket. LOL
  • gladyskawaiigladyskawaii Dreamer ✭✭✭
    ^naku ha hindi ko din afford magbigay ng cherry mobile sa inaanak noh sa sobrang pagkakuripot ko. 500 each lng sila sa dami ba naman nila. isipin na nila kung ano gusto nila basta may future din ako na pinag iipunan noh :lol:
  • ameleensyameleensy Member ✭✭✭
    "Kahit cellphone lang, masaya na ko..." Whaaattt? Parang the inaanak is "settling" pa and giving you an easy choice! 😂

    ^kaya nga eh. Nakakahiya naman magregalo ng mas mababa ang value kesa sa cellphone. Taguan ko na lang siya :lol:
  • pong_padourpong_padour Member ✭✭✭
    Pagbigyan mo na poe ninang. Kahit OPPOE ok na yun. LOL
    Yung favorite inaanak which is also my cousin, niregaluhan ko ng Ipad Mini dati when she was just around 6 or 7 that time. When she was around 4 naman, electric bike. The rest tinataguan ko LOL. Pag natyempuhan nila ko sa bahay, angpao na lang with cash.
    Mamumulubi ka talaga pag pasko eh. LOL
    Or gayahin nyo na lang yung nasa FB na ang mga pera nasa batsa tapos pipili sila nang nakablindfold.
  • gladyskawaiigladyskawaii Dreamer ✭✭✭
    ^actually ang plan ko sana ibigay sa kanya gift cheques para pang grocery sana niya ng gatas ng mga anak niya. 3 na anak niya at her very young age. 

    Meron na din ako nabigyan na cellphone dati pero hindi naman mamahalin. Yun nga lang bff ko kasi mother niya kaya ok sakin. 
  • pong_padourpong_padour Member ✭✭✭
    ^ Akala ko naman bata pa. haha
