A foreign tourist from the United Kingdom expressed her emotions in her video blog the experiences she had during her stay in the country calling it the worst vacation ever.
YouTuber Elayne Peddy posted a video sharing what happened to her during her visit at one of the Philippines’ most beautiful places, El Nido, Palawan for four days.
Peddy said on her video that her experience in the Philippines “isn’t that great and is really weird.”
It was literally the worst four days of my whole life.
She admitted that the Philippines is really a beautiful country because of its scenery, the blue, clear waters – a paradise.
But, Elayne in tears, said on her video that the locals have called her “fat ugly monkey”, “big fat girl” and some other bad names.
Here’s Elayne’s video.
The foreigner also said that people had been pointing on her and laughing as well. Peddy added that a woman even grabbed her tummy and said, “fat, fat.” There is also an incident where she has been asked by a local driver to pay twice the price of the fare because of her size.
“When a whole group of people turn, laugh and point at me, my confidence disintegrated into pieces,” Elayne said.
The tourist also said that she felt like she was bullied during the four days of her stay at El Nido and this made her to just stay inside the hotel room where she’s in. She said that her trips to Manila and Cebu seemed to be fine but not in El Nido.
Filipinos are known to the world for being very hospitable. But, incidents like this can really degrade the honor and the name of the whole race. May this be a call for all Filipinos to be responsible and to know respect for everybody.
