Based on the geotag of her post, the photo was taken during her mom Tez Lopez's week-long birthday celebration at The Farm at San Benito in Lipa City, Batangas.

In her caption, Gabbi admits, "I used to be so shy & hesitant when it comes to wearing triangle-shaped bikini tops.

"But now, I learned to finally embrace it [sparkle emoji] Flaunt it and be proud [white heart emoji] #FlatandProud"
