Who are you to judge me?

Rant alert - you've been warned!

Okay, this is something that has been brewing for a few years now since I came to this country. As much as I love Australia for all the blessings it has bestowed upon me - good job, wonderful fiance, cool friends - there was one particular incident that happened to me that made me want to leave.

My first year in Australia was an educational experience for me. Not only did I started working in my first job ever, but I also had the opportunity of meeting different kinds of people. One particular woman I made friends with is a filipina who's around 12 years older than I am. I thought this woman would be an excellent friend and who will be the one to show me the ropes of how it is to live in a foreign country.

A lot of people in my workplace kept on pestering me about my lovelife. A few of them wanted to match me up with people. Silly me, I decided to create a boyfriend - you know, pretend that I have a boyfriend to shut them up kind of thing? The whole thing started actually when I decided to break it off with the idiot boyfriend I had back in Manila, but that's a completely different story.

Anyway, this same woman was friends with a woman who was friends with Arnie. She decided to introduce us and needless to say, Arnie and I hit it off. Of course, silly me, I completely forgot that I was supposed to have a boyfriend somewhere but it slipped my mind. I did not have a boyfriend to begin with so I started seeing Arnie. He knew about the fake boyfriend and actually thought it was funny. It was then that this woman decided to start spreading vicious rumours about me...

Sigurado ka ba sa babaeng yan?

Japayuki yan...

Maraming matandang hapon na pumupunta sa bahay niyan...

I don't know where the hell these comments came from, possibly from the fact that I studied in Japan as an exchange student. Now, here's my dilemma. Did these comments come from the fact that I did go to Japan and yet this person registered it in her tiny little mind that going to Japan equals working as a prostitute there? Hello? I don't get it...

I did go to Japan. I went for a cultural exchange program sponsored by De La Salle University for 3 months. I went to a school in the Kanagawa Prefecture called Minami Go Oka. I worked damn hard to get that scholarship and for some slimy woman to undermine it and make it sound salicious is just unacceptable.

I also have every reason to believe that the person responsible for filling my shoutbox with filthy comments is the same person responsible for spreading these lies. For those who haven't seen the comments, this person blatantly accused me of sleepiing with so many men in Japan when "we were there working together" and that I'm just lucky I landed Arnie. Huh - you probably did that, honey, but not me!

I just wanted to get this off my chest because I am sick and tired of being called names when I don't deserve it. Apparently, another acquaintance of ours also made a comment about how I dress thus confirming that I am a japayuki. Okay, does wearing a skirt and boots in winter scream "I'm a prostitute"? Hello? Is this person an idiot or what?

I don't know what it is about Filipinos overseas. It turns them into malicious, sniveling, little maggots hell bent on causing destruction and despair everywhere they go. Okay, I'm not saying every Filipino does this. In my experience, it's the Filipinos who are miserable with their own lives that turn into malicious, sniveling, little maggots.

If this woman comes across this blog again, here's something for you:

Arnie is out to get you, you whore. My own mother is out to get you. She says that she did not work her arse off all these years to give me a good education just to let some two-bit dumb arse ruin my name. Pray that we don't cross paths or I'll rip your eyes off from the sockets and force you to eat it! Scum like you do not deserve any mercy.

This is war. No more merciful Jennie. I've had enough...

what a cowardly biatch! if she has the guts, she should've said all those nonsense in your face, and not in your comment boxes. people like her give us ladies a very bad name.

anyway, i think she's just overly jealous of you....and as much as it'll be satisfying to cut off her tongue, keep your cool for now....karma's gonna get to her one of these days, am sure =)

It's sad but I think there will always be people like that. Worse, these would often be the people whom we trusted. There's always this "crab mentality" with Filipinos, especially overseas. They think they need to step on others in order to go up and that sucks.

i think its true that karma will eat people's conscience out. eventually those who spread vicious nonsense and hurt another will get it back worst than they did to the other person. leave it to karma jen, it always works!

Typical Filipino behavior, I suppose. Can't take it if someone is better than they are.

Karma... so true.

Happy anniversary to your blog!

Don't stoop to her level. We all know it's not true.

So sad to find Filipinos like that in a foreign country.. they should be deported permanently.

Sigh. Some people just have to leech off of other people's happiness...they ruin things that are good just because they can't accept the fact that those people deserve the happiness they have.Don't worry, Jennie.That psycho-stalker-flooder will have her comeuppance.

Wow that was terrible. I hate it when a former "friend" turns on you. I wonder why was she so bitter towards you? Hey if she spreads rumors then we can start our own thing.

You know, I think she is just bitter because she had the hots for Arnie. You took him away from her that is why she has so much hate for you. :)

No seriously anyone who is e-stalking has mental problem. I think that poor woman has some very nasty personal problems and you happened to be one of her scapegoats. People with messed up lives sometimes tend to redirect their self-dissapointment into bitter hate for society, their past, their family and others.

When the truth is, they are just trying clear themselves of pesonal responsibility.

Just thank God you are not in her shoes.

And send them all back to the Philippines? No thanks, we have already enough of those back here.
