Judy Ann Santos says 'No!' to buying designer bags

Center Stage

JUDY Ann Santos splurges on groceries rather than on designer bags or shoes: "Hindi kaya ng puso ko. E kasi, nanghihinayang ako sa pera. Para kasing, kasi bag lang siya. Puwede naman ako sa bayong o sa eco bag."

Judy Ann does treat herself from time to time, but she said, "Kaya kong bumili ng branded na bag, basta installment kasi parang it's just... I'll allow myself to buy a couple of things like nice shoes. Pero shirt-pants lang naman ako at saka sneakers. So parang hindi rin applicable sa akin bumili ng mga heels na mamahalin kasi hindi naman sila gagamitin araw-araw."

So, instead of splurging on luxury bags or shoes, she would rather spend her money on groceries or gas.

"Iba-iba lang talaga tayo, e. Iba-iba lang. Para sa akin kasi, ang mas ano ko, e, bibili na lang ako ng pagkain or ipangga-gas ko na lang ito ng sasakyan. Parang dun ako sa mas daily essentials."

Judy Ann added she would only buy a luxury bag with a mind to hand it down to her daughters Yohan and Luna. She said, "Bibili lang ako ng branded na bag para lang, let's say, may pampamana ako kay Yohan or kay Luna.

The 43-year-old Kapamilya actress recalled the time she bought an Hermès Lindy bag, which her social media followers often see on her Instagram feed. The smallest Hermès Lindy is priced at P341,000.

Judy Ann said she gave it a lot of thought before making up her mind. "At saka yung bag na yun, may binili akong Hermès na bag, tinanong ko muna, 'Puwede po ba ito installment?' Okay, puwede, so check. Tinignan ko muna kung kasya yung mga gamit ko. Kasya? O check. Anong kulay? Brown. Check na check kasi napaka-neutral nung color niya. Kahit na anong suot ko, puwede siya. Kasi hindi naman ako mapormang tao. Kailangan ko ng very neutral na bag."

For Judy Ann, having this bag is enough: "Meron akong Chanel na flap bag at saka yung Hermès, yun na yun. Okay na yun.

Judy Ann does own other luxury bags, but these are gifts from her Magkapatid co-star Sharon Cuneta. She revealed, "Si Ate Sharon would give me luxury bags kasi nga alam niyang hindi ako... Hindi sa hindi mahilig, hindi ko lang talaga siya kayang isapuso na [bumibili]. Ang mahal-mahal naman kasi. PHP400,000 para sa isang bag? Panginoong diyos ko naman. Ang daming grocery na nun. Ang daming truffle oil na nun."

Meanwhile, the actress quashes the rumor that her marriage with Ryan Agoncillo had broken up.

“In fairness, may asim pa yung pangalan naming mag-asawa. Natatawa lang kami kasi parang mula nung mag-boyfriend pa lang kami, ‘yan na, pinaghihiwalay na kami, e. Parang simula pa lang nung relationship namin, may isyu nang naghiwalay kami. ‘Huh?! Hindi pa nga alam na mag-boyfriend kami, naghiwalay na kami?’ Paano kaya yun? Ano ba yun?”

Judy Ann and Ryan has been married for 12 years.They tied the knot in April 28,2009 in Batangas. After all those years, some netizen wants this marriage to fall into pieces.

"Fake naman ang mga news na ganyan. Gusto lang nilang mag-generate ng viewers para kumita. Wag na nating pansinin. Pag pinatulan natin yun, maha-happy pa sila dahil nakarating sa atin at nag-react tayo.”

According to Judy Ann their photos together in their own social media accounts is enough to show that their marriage is very much intact: “Parang posting something on Instagram that we’re together, that’s more than answering that issue. Kasi mas real-time ito kesa sa ginagawa nilang video,”

Judy Ann and Ryan were both aware of the fake news: “Wag na natin i-explain. Hindi naman tayo magkahiwalay. At saka pag ganitong pinatulan mo pa, hahaba nang hahaba, tatagal, lalaki. Mas lalo mo pang binigyan ng validity yung ginawang isyu. ’Wag mo nang pansinin kasi mamamatay din naman ‘yan. Or siguro sanay lang akong hindi mamansin. Sanay lang akong dumedma sa nega. Nega ka, dedma ka. Natatawa na lang siya. Siya nga nagsabi sa akin, 'E, kaya naman pala putok na putok itong balita kasi may sariling ano sa YouTube, may video yung issue.' Sabi ko, ‘Ah, talaga ba? Bahala nga sila!’ Never namin siyang pinag-usapan.

Hindi nga namin sinuyod, e, kung ilan yung videos na naka-upload. Dedma na. Nakuha mo na yung subscribers mo. For sure, baka naman nakuha mo na yung plaka mo from YouTube. Tanong mo na lang kung pwede mong isangla ‘yan. May extra kang pambigas.”
