Sharon Cuneta spoke about her recent experience in a store of luxury brand Hermes in South Korea, and clarified that she was just “turned away” by its salesman to follow the store’s COVID-19 protocols.

Megastar explained this while telling fans to “not feel bad” for her, as per the actress’ Instagram page yesterday, Oct. 2.

“Don’t feel bad about Hermes not letting me in! Lots, if not all name-brand stores even in the U.S. allow a certain number of people in at a time — sometimes 10 lang (only), while the others wait in line outside of the store,” she explained. “Lots also ask you to make an appointment. COVID measures nila ‘yan so OK lang.” (It is part of their COVID-19 [safety] measures so it is OK.)

“Sayang lang talaga belt lang naman ang balak ko eh kaya ayoko pumapasok sa ibang stores na di ko plano puntahan — ang dami kong nakikita eh!” she added.

(I was just planning to buy a belt. This is why I do not enter stores I was not planning to go to in the first place — I get to see a lot of [other items]!)

Cuneta earlier revealed about her Hermes store experience through a vlog where she documented her recent South Korea trip. Cuneta was accompanied by her husband, Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, and their kids Frankie, Miel and Miguel during the said trip. EDV
