We already know that some of our favorite content creators have made significant investments at such a young age. There's Hazel Quing who bought her first piece of land in Tagaytay at 23; Rei Germar and boyfriend Migy Romulo who launched an Instagram jewelry shop called By September; and Ashley Sandrine Yap who opened South End Brews, a milk tea and coffee store in Taguig.
Now, another Pinay influencer has just made a big money move: At 19, Bella Racelis just bought her first car. Check it out:
In her latest vlog, Bella actually revealed that the decision to buy a car was "very unexpected." She said, "Hindi ko naman talaga balak bumili ng car because I think that's the last one on my list." However, she mentioned that during her term break, she got busy with work and had lots of shoots that required trips to Manila from Lipa, Batangas (aka her hometown). Sometimes, they would use an SUV for their long drives, but Bella described it to be uncomfortable. In fact, it actually gives her motion sickness. From there, that's when she officially decided it was time to invest on a car.
"Personally, gusto ko talaga ang van. I bought this van not only for me but [also] for my whole family," she added. Between her two options, a Super Grandia Elite and an Alphard, Bella chose the former because it's more spacious. It's a 10-seater van which is perfect for her family! She got it in the color metallic gray.
Here are some of Bella's pics at the car dealership in Alabang. She had to write a check and sign *lots* of papers—adulting, indeed!
At one point in the video, it was so sweet because Bella didn't forget to give a shoutout to all her fans. "I just want to take this time to thank all of you guys, my Bella fam, for the endless support. This wouldn't happen without you guys."
Congrats on this milestone, Bella!
