MANILA -- "Ako na 'yung haggard o nausog version," was what K Brosas told a friend who flatteringly compared her to Ivana Alawi.
This exchange between the singer-comedienne and her friend, ex-TV host Janelle Jamer, happened on Instagram, under a swimsuit photo Brosas shared.
"Nakikita ko talaga is Ivana sayo," said Jamer.
According to Brosas, it's a compliment she regularly receives and the reason why she went ahead and check who Alawi was.
She joked: "Grabeeeee naman ang ganda at ang sexy niya syet! Pero sige ako na 'yung haggard o nausog version ni Ivana. lol!"
"Thanks pa din," she added.
Alawi is primarily known as a vlogger. Her YouTube channel has more than 3 million subscribers, and has amassed more than 135 million views since it was first created in May 2018.
She has delved into acting, first appearing in the 2018 afternoon drama series "Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Araw Gabi." She also appeared on "Ang Probinsyano."
Last year, she was part of "Sino ang Maysala?: Mea Culpa," starring Jodi Sta. Maria and Bela Padilla.
