"Dream ko [rin] makabili ng designer bag [para] sa isang babae," McCoy de Leon says on Elisse Joson's YouTube channel. Well, looks like this dream of his came true! In a fun-filled vlog, the newly-minted parents took on the "Can't Say No" Challenge, wherein McCoy had to give in to every request Elisse had for a day.
One of the last wishes McCoy granted for his beau was to get her a covetable Hermes Picotin bag. Receiving a designer gift from McCoy was something Elisse looked forward to for more than a year now. "Nung nasa America ako, doon ako nag-birthday so syempre malungkot ako. Sya kasi nandito. I was six months pregnant with Felize [and] that time busy sya," the 25-year-old recalls.
Admittedly homesick at the time, Elisse got into a small quarrel with McCoy when he video-called her to choose a designer bag for her gift. Long story short, she got a cute apology and greeting video from him instead, which she still appreciated of course. "Lesson for the day: Wag mo awayin yung jowa mo kung gusto mo ng magandang regalo sa birthday mo," she quips.
Safe to say, it all worked out in the end, as she is now in possession of an eye-candy handbag. McCoy was stunned when Elisse told him the purchase fetched six-digits, and she wasn't lying. The leather piece, which she got in a charming blush pink hue, goes for €2,200, which amounts to more than P125,000!

Albeit a bit taken aback, McCoy was still happy to get the bag for her. Although, Elisse later revealed to him that it was just a prank, and that the bag wasn't actually bought with his money (she got it from @_shoparmcandy_ on Instagram).
In the end, the young father insisted the bag would serve as his Christmas gift to her, a claim Elisse didn't contest. "Gusto ko na [pinagtratrabahuhan] ko yung mga binibili ko [kaya] pinagtrabahuhan ko umisip ng pagkakataon para mangyari to," Elisse joyfully expresses, "nagkatotoo yung prank ko!"
