Why Judy Ann Santos will think twice before buying designer labels

Jun 29, 2017
Judy Ann Santos is not the maluho type, and will not splurge on impulsive shopping sprees.

What makes Judy Ann Santos smile?

However long that list may be, you can bet that the last items on her list will probably be designer bags, dresses, and shoes.

Even when she was young and single, she was not the type to splurge on impulsive shopping sprees.

At her recent presscon for Sun Life Financial Philippines, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) writer Rachelle Siazon, "Hmm... Hindi ako maluho kasi wala akong time. Sa totoo, ha?

"Mas gusto ko magtrabaho kasi mas nag-e-enjoy ako na nakikita ko yung mga tatay-tatayan ko sa trabaho, nakakasama ko sila.

"Excited ako kapag may mga bago akong artista na nakakatrabaho, kasi bago ako nun, e.

"Fan ako, kaya kapag nagkukuwentuhan sila, nakikinig talaga ako."

Her wardrobe, she said, was not really on top of her priorities.

Juday continued, “Siyempre, kapag may nakikita kang branded—kapag bata, medyo naiinggit ka—uso pa nun Girbaud, Polo Ralph Lauren...yung mga sapatos na ganyan.

“Kapag nakita mo, ang ganda pala sa paa. Pero kapag nakita mo yung presyo, hindi pala siya maganda! Hahaha!”

Even now that she's married, Juday said in a separate interview that she relies on her stylist, and has a few timeless fashion finds in her closet.

For the two Sun Life's presscons she attended, fashionistas noted that she wore her nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

The Kapamilya star explained during her interview with PEP, “Kasi inisip ko, aapakan ko lang araw-araw, parang medyo ang sakit sa puso.

“Hanap na lang ako ng kapareho niya—only because my budget was limited.”

But she would hoard necessities like "lampin," "cologne," and "wet ones."

She added, "Mababaw ang kaligayahan ko.”

And she also believes in rewarding herself after working hard.

“Kasi believer ako ng you work hard, you play a bit hard, but you still keep something for yourself."

But aside from her family, what would make her face light up?

Her husband Ryan Agoncillo revealed in a previous interview, "Basta tungkol sa pagluluto. Kinakarir niya kasi iyan, e."

So when their family went to New Zealand in April 2015, one of the highlights of their trip was this UFO Roaster/Smoker, which, Juday described as a "roaster, smoker, steamer, griller in one."

In June 2016, Ryan surprised his wife with an impromptu trip to Hong Kong, where they tried the dishes of the famous French chef, Joel Robuchon.

But what made Juday scream in delight was when Ryan brought her to a seller of the "seasonal" Black Truffles, which is said to be the "black diamond" of the kitchen.
