Just like many of us, Kisses Delavin had a colorful college life, which she considers as one of her "happiest moments."
In an interview with Boy Abunda, the Miss Universe Philippines candidate recalled how her college life at De La Salle University went, including how she saved most of her P1000 daily allowance.
“Sina mommy and daddy pinapabaunan ako ng P1000 per day sa La Salle, pero I think I would spend mga 100. One week na 'yun," she revealed.
Kisses achieved this since her condo is just right across DLSU, and she made it a habit to eat at home before going to class.
However, the "Pinoy Big Brother" alum was quick to explain that she is not kuripot; she just knows how to value her money especially with how different the spending habits are when you're in Manila.
“I’m not kuripot naman pero I’m careful with how much I spend and here in Manila you can just go to the mall and P1000 is gone," she said. "It’s an adjustment, of course, you have to consider your friends din. Pero I always make sure I don’t spend too much.”
Kisses then credited her parents — who are both businesspeople — for teaching her how to handle money at such a young age.
“I remember when I was a child, my mother and father would work from Monday to Sunday and I learned the value of money. That’s why the first time when I had a baon na money was in first year high school because I don’t like to spend money that much. Because I know how hard it is to earn that money,” she said.
