Pia Wurtzbach has learned to be more conscious of her luxury splurges amid the pandemic.

On Wednesday night, January 20, 2021, the 31-year-old actress-beauty queen answered some of her fans’ questions during her “True or False” session on Instagram Stories.

In one of her posts, Pia revealed that it has been a while since she bought a designer item. She explained, “I stopped doing this like since last year kasi hindi rin nagagamitAt saka, minsan parang pag binuksan mo iyong cabinet parang naiisip mo, ‘Grabe, ano ba itong mga binili ko?'”

In a separate post, Pia noted that she is not a brand-conscious person. She said, “I appreciate all kinds of brands. I love signature brands and even high-street brands, Filipino brands. I just mix it up.”

Even when it comes to gifts, the former Miss Universe titleholder reiterated the saying, “It’s the thought that counts.” Pia said, “Lahat ng mga klaseng regalo naa-appreciate ko. Lalo na kapag pinag-isipan talaga at maythought. Kahit na drawing lang iyan, na-appreciate ko iyan. 

Wala iyan sa halaga, guys.”

Pia was last seen on TV as host of ABS-CBN’s dance competition World of Dance Philippines in 2019. She has not been active in the local showbiz scene since then. 

In her Instagram Stories, the beauty queen said she is focusing on her different business ventures.
