Sejak menjadi pelarian 26 tahun lalu (sejak 1986) koleksi kasut Imelda Marcos yang dikatakan berjumlah hampir 3 ribu pasang kini habis dimakan anai anai dan kulat.Lambang kemewahan dan kemegahan Imelda yang suatu waktu dulu menggelarkan dirinya “THE FIRST LADY”.

Antara yang turut rosak dimakan waktu adalah koleksi pakaian Presiden Marcos kecuali beberapa pasang yang masih tersimpan baik di Muzium Sejarah Philippina.Jadi kepada sesiapa yang merasakan mereka ‘The First Lady’ dan masih menjalani kehidupan bermewah mewah,ambil lah apa yang terjadi kepada Imelda Marcos sebagai pengajaran dan jangan biarkan cerita dan barang peninggalan anda menjadi bahan tontonan di muzium untuk sebab yang salah.
