Imeldific:
a term to describe excess and extravagance.

"She saw it as her duty to provide ‘some kind of light, a star’ for the impoverished Filipino people over whom her husband presided. So she took $5-million shopping sprees to New York and Rome, reportedly owned the world’s largest collections of gems and 3,000 pairs of shoes".

That was how Newsweek describes Imelda Marcos, who was included among Newsweek's "Greediest People of All Time" list.

Imelda is the 79 year-old widow of strongman former President Ferdinand Marcos.


note: I was actually searching for another filipino on the list but never found his name.
