May bisita ako, sobrang bait at sobrang ganda in person. Salamat Miss Jam Magno sa limang oras na chikahan. Salamat sa…

“Alam mo hindi talaga ako kinikilig ‘pag lalaki yung namimeet ko. Pero ‘pag maangas na babae, talagang napapa-tameme ako (You know I don’t get giddy whenever I meet men. But if I meet a badass woman, I get speechless). As in. Aside from the fact that she’s so tall…Diyos ko, beauty queen si madame. Pero ang angas! (My God, madame is a beauty queen but she’s so badass!)” Magno said.

The opinionated TikToker went on to give the cool MMDA spokesperson props for her efforts behind the Malasakit Movement, which the social media personality said was “for food stability for Filipino families.”

“In one year, they have helped one million families. Alam niyo ba ‘yon?! (Did you know that?!) Yup. She’s not super loud about it but again she goes above and beyond her job,” Magno further said of the former Miss Earth contestant.

The Malasakit Movement is a traveling market that sells adobo/menudo cut pork for as low as P280 a kilo and sinigang cut for P170 a kilo. 

For her part, Pialago thanked Magno for her kind words and also gave flattering descriptions of her new friend.

“Ang cute mo Mam! Salamat talaga sa suporta! (You’re so cute ma’am! Thanks for the support!)” the MMDA official wrote on her Facebook Saturday, February 6.

In an earlier post Friday, Pialago shared a selfie of her and Magno, with the caption: “May bisita ako, sobrang bait at sobrang ganda in person. Salamat Miss Jam Magno sa limang oras na chikahan. Salamat sa suporta mo sa mga proyekto ng Malasakit Movement (I have a visitor, she’s so kind and beautiful in person. Thanks Miss Jam Magno for the five-hour chat. Thanks for supporting projects of the Malasakit Movement).”
