Being Bonang 3

Being Bonang returns for a third season as the fashion-obsessed social butterfly bats her long lashes in the direction of her entrepreneurial dreams. You know - #CareerGoals.

Reportedly much happier and more carefree this season, Bonang also lets her hair down to enjoy her 30s as well as the new friendships she has cultivated.

There is plenty of luxury globetrotting as she travels to New York and many other local destinations to accept awards for her achievements and honouring high profile business-related invitations.

Saying "Yes!", "Yes" or "ye-hess" to invites, in other words.

Bonang also hosts a 54th birthday celebration for her mother and cousin Pinky Girl also makes a return.
