Hermes bags

What is with the Hermes Bags? I read from an online tabloid that Jinkee Pacquiao, the wife of Manny Pacquaio spent 8.9 million pesos buying hermes bags. I couldn't imagine how many bags comprised that amount. Aside from personal use, maybe the others are intended to be gifts. But come to think of it, there are lots of people starving, that 8.9 million pesos could be a great help. I don't know if I'm just saying this because I can't afford to buy one, but in this times that lots of people are jobless and homeless, I absolutely will feel guilty buying one. This is similar to drinking Starbucks than Dunkin Donuts/Mcdo coffee, the latter taste better but due to status symbol, one will go with the former. But as the saying goes, if you can afford it, buy it!...if you have it, flaunt it! The first thing that comes into my mind for having a hermes bag or any branded bags, 'wow ang sosyal!'. Does it really contribute to being sosyal? I know someone that kept on buying branded denim pants, it costs around P3,000/pc., but it didn't make any difference to her. You wouldn't know that it's the original brand, unless you'll hear her bragging about it. Whether your bag or denim pants are generics, it doesn't matter, it's how you carry them and yourself.
