As she never failed to amuse us with her astounding stint as one of the newest hosts of It’s Showtime, Kim Chiu has been mesmerizing us with the OOTDs (or outfit of the day) that she wears not just on the show and her other appearances, but in her travels and personal shenanigans as well.
But going through her photos on Instagram, we couldn’t help but notice the fashionable designer bags that she complements with her fabulous getups, such as the ones we featured in this gallery!
While she’s not bragging her prized possessions, some naysayers couldn’t help but comment nastily in her recent posts. Thus, the Chinita Princess graciously responded to them by posting a photo of her rummaging through her luxurious tote bags during one of her recent beach trips, and wrote in the caption, “For those reacting, bought this bag years ago and I’m happy that I haven’t bought any yet since the start of the pandemic.”
She continued, “This pandemic made me realize so much. Life is short. Collect more memories and spend more time with your loved ones. You will never know what will happen with your loved ones. You will never know what will happen tomorrow.”
Those who have been following Kim’s vlogging journey could also recall that she actually gave us a glimpse of her massive bag collection via her “Room Tour” in February 2019, which she jestingly dubbed “my masterpiece”.
“Itong room na ‘to, simula no’ng nag-artista ako, naipon ko na ‘yong mga bags na ‘to. And wala pa akong binebenta ni isa kasi ‘pag nakikita ko sila, naaalala ko kung ano ‘yong pinaghirapan kong work. Kunwari galing ako ng taping or malaki naman ‘yong na-earn ko sa work na ‘yon, bumibili ako ng reward para sa sarili ko. Para ma-inspire ka to work every day,” she related.
Apart from her hard work, she jested that her designer bag collection also signifies how tired she has been throughout her showbiz career. She added, “Kasi ‘pag nagwo-work hard ka and then may reward ka sa self mo, ang sarap ng feeling kasi alam mong pinaghirapan mo.”
As the Millennial Multimedia Idol took us inside the room which she had not shared with everyone until that vlog, viewers could see that she segregates her bags according to brand and size.
She wrapped up the video by leaving an advice to everyone. “Kapag nag-work hard ka, it’s not naman masama to reward yourself [ng] kahit ano. Something that would make you happy para to keep you going sa pagtratrabaho mo…Tapos ‘wag kang magco-complain kasi in life, hindi naman nabibigay sa atin lahat. It’s for us na pagtrabahuhan ‘yon and then kapag napagtagumpayan natin ‘yong trabaho na ‘yon, we will reward yourself a little para ma-inspire tayo on the next job.”
Then she continued, “At the end of that pagod, may reward ka sa self mo…Masarap sa pakirmadam na alam mong may ginawa kang something for yourself kasi self-love is really important sa lahat ng tao. I-treat mo rin ‘yong self mo para maiwasan natin ang anxiety, lalo na ‘yong kino-compare mo ‘yong self mo to anybody. That is very wrong kasi each and everyone of us are very unique and have our own way na alam nating magiging successful tayo. So just believe in yourself, trust in yourself, reward yourself, make yourself happy, and everything will fall into place at the right time, [at the] right place.”
