She may have missed this year’s title as FHM’s sexiest woman in the Philippines but Jessy Mendiola sure is sexier at 25 in these new bikini photos, which delighted the world of social media and which have already garnered 123K likes on Instagram as of this posting.
She was named the Sexiest Woman in the Philippines by FHM Magazine last year. She was still included in the 2017 Top 10 list of FHM Philippines’ Sexiest Women, but with fellow Kapamilya actress Nadine Lustre taking over the number 1 post.
Jessy recently celebrated her 25th birthday and went on a short vacay to Boracay. On her birthday, one of her friends posted a video on Instagram where amused Jessy Mendiola walked in to a surprise birthday party prepared by Luis, her family and closest friends.
The past few years have not been easy. I was so scared to be myself, to love without hesitation and to live my life the way I wanted to. Many times I would doubt myself, always listen to what other people would think or say, always try to please others, because that was me. I would sacrifice my own happiness for someone else’s pleasure, even if it meant getting hurt. Everything changed when I started to choose my OWN happiness and forgive myself for not being perfect. I am at a point in my life where I am happy with myself as I found my peace. Things aren’t always easy and perfect but I’ve finally learned to drown out the noise. I realized that happiness is something you work hard for. It’s something you decide to be everyday. Now that I’m a year wiser, I promise myself that there will be no holding back anymore. I will keep choosing happiness. To the people who stood by me through my highs and lows and have encouraged me to never give up, thank you. You know who you are, I will be forever grateful.?? #25
Of course, Luis Manzano, Jessy’s boyfriend was also present at the party held on Saturday, December 2. He later took to Instagram to share a sweet birthday message for her, along with several #couplegoals photos.
His post read: “Happy birthday to my howhow. You are the one that ties everything in my life together. All the good things happening in my life wouldn’t truly be or feel good if I didn’t have you to share them with ? happy birthday my howhow ?? I love you!”
Jessy also took to Instagram after the celebration to express her gratitude, saying: “Grateful for the small things, big things, and everything in between.”
