Gabbi Garcia has no doubt been enjoying the fruits of her labor, as the 24-year-old actress has purchased another stylish van equipped with every comfort.

In her latest YouTube vlog posted on Sept. 24, the Kapuso star struck things up by sharing a glimpse of her new van that features a different take from her theater-like Starex that she shared a glimpse of back in 2018. 

For this year, Gabbi opted for a Hyunfai Staria van that boasts tinted windows with sunroofs both on the passenger and back seats for a leveled-up travel experience.  

“In our line of work, madalas lagi kaming on the road [...] so big thing yung kotse na van for us,” she said. 

The Unbreak My Heart actress was proud to share the "divine" experience that the leather car seats can double as bed on wheels with their built-in leg rests and reclining features. 

All the seats in front, middle, and back also have heaters which the actress poked fun of because of the ironic temperature levels in the Philippines.  

"Ang favorite feature ko dito [is] may aircon and ventilator yung upuan. Natatawa sa akin yung mga tao kasi syempre, nasa Pilipinas tayo, mainit yung lugar natin pero favorite na favorite ko kapag malamig ‘yung car [...] tapos naghe-heater ako [sa upuan]. Sobrang ang sarap ng feeling ko sa traffic,” Gabbi remarked.  

Other features in the van include organizers where she can put her essentials, mini trashcan for her garbage, a vanity mirror with lights to allow her to check her face from time to time, and a table where she and her companions can eat or do some work on the laptop. 

Gabbi mentioned that she did not want to have a television inside her new van because she realized that she did not really use it in her previous one. 

The second part of the vlog also gave a tour of her old black Starex van where the actress emphasized its good condition even after six years, thanks to her dad for taking care of it.  

Compared to the new van, Gabbi’s first-ever van has a television where they can enjoy an extra mile experience of watching while traveling. However, this vehicle did not have the gravitational feature, unlike her newest purchase.  

It also has the essentials like a mirror, lamp, and automatic chairs with buttons, and is perfectly equipped with customized very “Gabbi-like” things including her and her boyfriend Khalil Ramos’ Instax.  

Gabbi bought her first van in 2017 for her 18th birthday. She said it has a sentimental value because it's her first “artista van.” 

“I don’t think I’m gonna let go of [this old van] anytime soon kasi [...] katas to ng [...] birth beans ko sa showbiz, so I wanna keep it talaga,” the actress said, pertaining to her successful TV shows like Encantadia which gave her the opportunity to own the vehicle.
