A twitter trend #MMKTilWeMeetAgain has taken the social media site by storm with people expressing their delight over the onscreen love story of celebrities EJ Falcon and Sarah Lahbati in yesterday's Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) episode titled Til We Meet Again.
Other than the story’s “kilig” factor and relatable rise and demise of romantic relationships which come in “stages”, netizens were delighted by Sarah Lahbati’s unexpected showcase of her acting skills. Netizens were impressed by her portrayal of Mia, the girlfried of NJ which in turn is portrayed by Falcon. Netizens also commented on the Swiss-Filipino’s stunning beauty as captured on television. Lahbati thanked a fan for the good words the latter tweeted about her looks.
This was not the first time Lahbati’s performance impressed netizens. Lahbati was first noticed by twitterverse when she portrayed Monica Cuenco, the “Bituing Walang Ningning Musicale” star, in another MMK episode.
Some of her fans said: “It’s a wonderful story. @SarahLahbati you’re a great actress. idol!” “It takes a long journey to achieve our dreams. patience and passion are the secret codes to our success.”
“Ngayon ko lang naappreciate ang galing ng isang Sarah Lahbati!” “Super galing mo @SarahLahbati!!! Idol na idol na kita! Keep it up :)” “@SarahLahbati nice voice, super galing mo! Hehee nice acting skills tho#MMKKontesera!”.
Lahbati will be part of the upcoming Kapamilya soap opera, Written in Our Stars, starring Toni Gonzaga, Piolo Pascual, Jolina Magdangal and Sam Milby early this 2016.
