On January 13, a Filipino who works in retail in Singapore wrote about meeting Maine Mendoza when she visited the city-state on Facebook, saying the actress is “suplada” in real life.
A user then shared a link to the now-deleted Facebook post on Twitter. So Maine is in Singapore, and the caption reads, “Nakapag pa photo, pinost, at pinublic pa. But ang sabi niya is eh upset daw siya kay Maine at suplada.”
Maine replied to the post detailing her *worst* experience meeting fans abroad. “If I came off as “supladita” (as ate sales associate in Bath and Body Works Ngee Ann Mall have said to every Filipino inside the store, even to my friend) eh dasurv nga naman, sana tinarayan ko na nga talaga. Bastos si SA and that group of girls. Bastos at makakapal ang mukha,” she says.
“If you only know how disrespectful and entitled those ladies were, especially the sales associate, ay maloloka ka nalang talaga. By far the worst experience/interaction with kababayans abroad. Bastos.”
