- In one of the photos, one can see MJ and Rabiya holding hands while posing for the camera, though the beauty queen from Cotabato took on a rather exaggerated pose as if capturing the limelight from the beauteous lass from Iloilo City
MJ Lastimosa recently posted a photo on her Instagram account and wrote a caption declaring that she can capture the limelight even from the Philippines’ bet to the Ms. Universe 2020, Rabiya Mateo.
The two are seen by many as best of friends, with Rabiya even considering MJ as her elder sister and is more than just a friend.
Before anyone gets any negative idea on MJ’s caption, the former beauty queen is only writing it in jest.
This is because in the photo, MJ is seen posing in all her glory while holding Rabiya’s hand.
The Ilongga beauty queen, on the other hand, is simply facing the camera with arms outstretched as if she’s saying that she’s just there to enjoy.
"nananapaw talaga yung asa kaliwa," MJ wrote in her post.
It is not surprising, therefore, if one’s eyes is immediately drawn to MJ, who intentionally took on that pose to capture the attention of the audience, though she made it clear it was all a joke and Rabiya went along with it.
The group of MJ and Rabiya took time to visit Universal Studios in Hollywood before they go back home to the Philippines.
