Last Saturday (July 12, 2014) at M&M’s World Shanghai, I had the most indecent experience of being SHOUTED at by an unprofessional & rude local Chinese sales staff (see attached photo for reference) feeling his foul breath RIGHT IN MY FACE! I wasn’t sure which was more enraging, him shouting at me about claiming the South China Sea or his foul breath blowing in my face.  Long-story-short, I was asking about buying customizable M&M’s kit then he asked me where I was from. Upon truthfully answering him that I’m from The Philippines, he said to me in Chinese: “NAN HAI SHI WO MEN" (or something like it), lost in translation, I thought he was saying something about Chinese men (男孩是我们). I tried to ignore him but he repeated it for another 2-3 times, so I asked “What about Chinese men?” The other sales staff laughingly said: “SOUTH CHINA SEA IS OURS!” (南海是我们 in English). Then this A-hole shouted at me again repeating the words “SOUTH CHINA SEA IS OURS! WELCOME TO CHINA!” As a refined, cultured and educated woman, I walked away. Then I took a photo of him from afar. HAHA! :)) Wouldn’t have expected a trip to a candy shop to be both annoying and terrifying. For a flagship store of a GLOBAL BRAND, I would’ve expected a better service and attitude from their staff. Honestly, every time Chinese locals ask me where I’m from, I’m a bit skeptic to answer truthfully expecting things like this (well, not as intense as this) will happen. I’ve always been proud and defensive about being Filipino, I just never wanna have to feel scared or ashamed of where I’m from.

A year older, a life richer. Crossing “Spend my #birthday abroad” & “Get a VIP treatment” off my bucket list. LOL! Forever grateful for being blessed in so many things and in so many ways. 😊😘 #Shanghai #China #zaishanghai  (at the Apartment Shanghai)
