A lot of Filipinos were alarmed when the price per kilo of siling labuyo (bird’s eye chili) skyrocketed to PHP1,000 last month.
And even if the vendors of Kamuning Market, where the inquiry reportedly took place, claimed the figure was PHP800, the news shocked the consumers.
Pokwang, however, was "rejoicing" because "the pinakamahal na alahas sa earth ay nasa akin hahaahahhaa ako ang nakabili!"
With her stylist Zia Dela Rosa and makeup artist Roviel, she showed her necklace, which is "mas mahal pa sa diamond," to her Instagram followers.
Here's how their conversation went:
Pokwang: "Zia, akin na yung pinkamamahalin kong alahas. Yung mas mahal pa sa diamond."
Zia handed to her a bib-style necklace adorned with siling labuyo.
Pokwang: "Dali na, isuot niyo na. Hello, anong sinabi ng diamond. Ang ganda, di ba?"
Makeup artist: "Magkano kayang isa?"
Pokwang: "Naman, mahal 'yan."
