That's Really Costly!

Image courtesy of www.peggyleebrown.com

A Balenciaga City handbag would easily cost between 75,000 to 100,000 PhP depending on the model if you buy it from the store in Greenbelt. I remember getting one for my friend in Paris last April for 60,000 PhP only. If you ask me, that's considered as a really good price for a Balenciaga bag. You can never get one for that price anywhere in Asia unless it's on sale.

Last week, this actor was looking for a Balenciaga City handbag to give as an anniversary gift to his girlfriend. He was so shocked when he found out about the real cost of the bag that his girlfriend wanted. He didn't expect that a handbag could cost him that much money.

When he got to speak to this certain seller, he told her that his budget for the bag was only 50,000 PhP. He went on insisting that she helps him find one that is within his budget. The seller was so puzzled and didn't know what to tell him so she politely suggested that he considers buying his girlfriend a Balenciaga wallet instead. The seller never heard from the actor again since then.

Do you know who this thoughtful actor is? I guess it is not his fault that he is not exposed to designer handbags. Now that he knows the price of a Balenciaga bag, he has a few more months to save up so that he can buy one for his girlfriend this coming Christmas.

  8. Ito ba si R na sumasayaw?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Is this R with gf C? Well, I guess it is acceptable that dudes shouldn't know the prices of handbags, but to insist to give him a Balenciaga that would fit his budget... Naman, nakakahiya!

    ReplyDelete
  10. BF: Is that bag Really costly?
    GF: Yes, that is Costly, really! Hehehe ;)

    ReplyDelete
  11. That bag is cheap as compared to Hermes, LV or the other designer bags.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Naman hehe pang DOM ang demands ni GF. Dapat kay politician athlete dumikit si GF, di lang Balenciaga bag - Hermes and Goyard pa! With matching condo and hot wheels!

  15. Dapat nag scout muna sya sa internet bago sya diretsang bumili.

    Wala naman problema sa pagiging kuripot, maganda nga yun marunong sya humawak ng pera.

    Yun nga lang public figure sya at napahiya sya, kaya may BI na ganito!

    ReplyDelete
  16. R & C meant to be... ilabas mo na ang gretchen baretto mo. ako na bahala sa red stilletos mo.

    ReplyDelete
  17. As FP said, it's not his fault he doesn't know how much a City is. I also don't fault him for having a budget and sticking with it. Tama na hindi siya nagpapadala sa luho ng girlfriend niya. Pasalamat pa nga yung girlfriend na he's willing to spend 50K on an anniversary present for her.

    ReplyDelete
  18. bat ba di ko pa nababasa yung whole story, i already got a feeling na si R at C to? hahaha ganun ba talaga ka-innocent yang si R?!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Super duper agree with 7:39AM!!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ako na Lang sana jowa ni R. Baka ako pa bumili ng designer bags for him. Hehehehe. It is obvious that the girlfriend of R is insensitive. I am sure she knows that R is oblivious to the price of the designer bag but still she tricked him in buying her that bag as an anniversary gift. Not that R can't afford to buy the bag, but it just not clear to him that the bag could be worth that much. To the girlfriend, my advice is, if you want to keep your man then stop rubbing elbows with the Jones

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can't C buy the Balenciaga bag herself??? 75k should be peanuts to her. If you're earning your own money, why ask your BF to provide for your luho? Let the BF get a gift he can afford and want to give you. There is so much empowerment in buying (pricey) things yourself. Mas masarap gamitin kse ikaw ang bumili.

    ReplyDelete
  22. hindi naman masamang maging practical. "love dont costs a thing" sabi ni jlo haha!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Agree anon 9:57...dapat siya nalang bumili kung yun ang nagpapasaya sa kanya. Di pa nga sila ganun katagal ni girl, kung makapagpabili kala mo naman...
    Isn't it sweeter for a guy to think of the anniversary gift than the girl asking for something she knew the guy was pressured to buy. Bilhin mo luho mo girl. Sana maging masaya nalang kasi may guy na ganun for you :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Teka, nagpapabili ba si C kay R? O sariling sikap lang ni R na bigyan siya ng Balenciaga bag? Parinig kaya o baka naman nagtanong tanong lang siya ng gusto. Let's not pass judgement on C kasi wala naman sa BI ang details kung siya nagpabili talaga.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Tama lang bilhan ng BF ng regalo noh. Lalake naman talaga dapat ang gumagastos. Ska That's the price of having a celebrity GF. Anyone should not complain. Kayang kaya nila bumili nun, laki ng mga sweldo ng mga yan noh.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Dapat si GF gumaya sa ATE niya na jinowa ang mga ma-aandang papei para bonggang bongga magpabuysung ng mga betchicola niyang bagey! Wawa naman si BF, tinatry maachieve ang mga ka-emotan ng nyowa niya.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ang dami naman hindi alam ni R! Pati ba naman bags! di man lang mag research sa net! & ano ba naman 100thou bag sa kinikita niya... siguro simple lang tlaga siya....at si C naman ha... so unlike ng sis niya...acdcdg to my very reliable source na nagbibigay sa kanya ng Special treatments... ang ambisyon talaga ng sis niya ay maging isang katulad ni Great Britain na nakahiga sa salapi! kaya sa madatung lang pumapatol! thats why she also made it to The List! At least si C ay bagay pa sa kanya maging sosyal! Eh sa sis niya... kahit ano pa isuot at ilagay niya sa katawan niya, wa class talga!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ewan pero si C kahit magdamit sosyal at sosyal gamit mukha pa ring palengkera. Hahaha. Dapat cash na lang na 50k bgay ni R bhala na si C bilhin kung ano gusto niya. Hahaha

  29. It's in the title- Really Costly plus it's all over showbiz programs that they'e celebrating their 1st anniversary.... There are even related blind items obviously pointing to the boy being overly protective of the "worn out" actress as if he's the bodyguard and him asking around for bedroom tricks to satisfy his "skillful" girlfriend. The gf - C, probably wants a Balenciaga bag so she could brag about it over Twitter as usual. Girl Takei

    ReplyDelete
  30. tama lang naman may budget noh. O.A nyo to judge the guy... atleast he was willing to spend 50k.. and to even scout for 50k bag from the said store para lang mabigyan the girl... that was a sweet thought. jahe pero still it was sweet of him to try.

    who's the guy ba?

    ReplyDelete
  31. R is thoughtful enough but hello carry naman ni C bumili ng sarili nyang bag and it's true na mas masaap ang feeling pag ikaw mismo ang bumili instead of bigay sayo...especially pag luxury items. Siguro mas practical lang si R kaya 50K lng yun budget niya. Well kung gusto talaga ni C eh di magbigay na lang siya ng additional na 25K..eh di solve na ang problema! :)

    Super agree with 11:42 AM! Trying hard nga ang Ate ni C na maging sosyal...her expensive clothes, bags, jewelry and what nots will never ever hide the fact that she has no breeding. As the saying goes.. "You can take the girl out of the tralier park, but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl." Yun na!

  54. Ngayon lang naman humingi ng mahal si C kay R. Most of the time nga, si C pa ang gumagastos kay R. One time nga R had to call C kasi wala siyang pambayad sa toll gate... nakalimutan nya raw wallet nya. Masyadong feeling gwapo itong si R at USER!!!

  62. P50,000 is already a lot to pay for a bag, just because it is a balenciaga? The girl should never measure love around material things, she should just be happy that the guy loves her...

    ReplyDelete
  63. i saw R and C at greenbelt the other day and may bitbit na balenciaga paper bag si R. and it's a big paper bag! so malamang bag ang nabili at hindi wallet. haha!

    ReplyDelete
  64. ahihihihihiihhh oo nga!!! talagang brandname dropping! binili naman pala!?!?!?! at his clothes arent really costly.

    ReplyDelete
  65. kalurks! balenciaga bag ang binigay ni boylet ka girlet samantalang ang bigay ni girlet kay boylet eh lacoste shirt lang! how sad! walang return of investment si boylet! haha! chos!

    ReplyDelete
  66. i think C did not ask for the bag from R. Maybe R just knew na it's what C wants, and as a surprise, he decided to give it as an anniversary gift. what he didn't know is that it would cost him that much. Nevertheless, super nag-effort naman sya at binigay nga talaga according kay C sa presscon. Anyway, obvious na obvious naman na head over heels crazy in love si guy kay girl to the point na nakakasuka na ang pagiging vocal ni guy about his feelings hehehe. he must be thinking she's worth it. 'Naf said.

    Next pls...

  69. Marami naman ang nag-aalinlangan na gumastos nang ganun kalaki for a bag. Credit to him for being a wise spender.

    ReplyDelete
  70. between 75,000 AND 100,000.......or FROM 75,000 to 100,000...but never between 75,000 TO 100,000.

    ReplyDelete
  71. there's nothing wrong with trying to find a bag that's within his budget naman. i think people have this notion kasi that if artista ka dapat hindi ka kuripot. pero hello? macoconsider pa ba na kuripot to spend 50k for a bag?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Ang mahal naman ng "love cave" ni Comfort Room. Kamusta naman kaya ang training ni River Cruise? Nag improve na kaya siya? LOL!
