Actress Yasmien Kurdi couldn’t stop herself from giving her opinion over the exaggerated reaction made by thousands of netizens to a post about a P299 engagement ring.
In her Facebook post, Yasmien said that the netizens were overreacting to the said issue, saying that she didn’t receive any engagement ring from her husband, Rey Soldevilla, but they’re still happy.
“P299 na ring issue… medyo OA. Ako nga wala naman ako engagement ring, tapos wedding rings namin di naman nasosoot kasi di kami sanay. Kasal namin 20k lang,” said Yasmien.
She said that it would be better for planning couples just to invest the money they initially wanted to spend on a piece of ring.
“In my opinion, iinvest niyo nalang pera niyo sa lupa at bahay. Para di kayo mamulubi sa renta at di puro porma. Laking tipid ng hindi nagrerenta ng bahay. Ang material na bagay nadadala lang yan. Minsan nagmumukhang mahal kapag proud mo siya sootin. Minsan naman ang mahal ng soot ng isang tao, pero di naman mukhang mahal. Di ko din alam kung bakit,” she stated.
The post received mixed reactions from the netizens.
“Minsan Lang mag propose ang lalaki . Accept the cheapest ring or high cost ring . Kasi wala ng pupupose sa iyo pagdating ng araw. Attention mga girls mag propose ang bf ninyo ng ring mahal man ito or low cost accept it with your humble heart Big Yes agad. The Most important ring is wedding ring. Perfect said Yasmine,” said netizen Magdalena.
It can be recalled that an anonymous netizen posted a ‘confession’ and questioned her worth after she received a P299 engagement ring from her boyfriend.
However, there was a possibility that the story was false as there was also a woman who received a P299 engagement ring several years ago, but they’re still married.
