MANILA – Kapamilya star Liza Soberano “literally cried” when she opened her birthday gift from her on-screen partner and rumored boyfriend, Enrique Gil.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Soberano said she has been wanting to buy what Gil gave her – a beautiful black bag – but it was “nearly impossible to find one with the specifications I wanted.”
“But this man conquered the impossible and got it for me,” she wrote.
So what’s the deal with this bag? Soberano’s new arm candy, it turns out, is quite pricey and hard to find.
Gil had to ask the help of a Cebu-based online shop to find a specific style of the Chanel Boy Flap Bag, which is made from black diamond quilted caviar leather and antique gold hardware.
The bag comes in different sizes and styles, and is priced from $4,700 (around P233,848.50) to $7,325 (around P364,455.38) – and that’s for a pre-owned one. The numbers come from Portero, a New York-based online shop for authentic pre-owned luxury goods.
This is not the first time that Soberano and Gil gave lavish gifts to each other. Last year, Gil received a flyboard from Soberano – a gift that costs around $3,000 (around P149,265).
