The Reason Behind Why Venus Raj Don’t Wear Swimsuit Anymore
Venus Raj is most noted in representing the Philippines in Miss Universes 2010 where she placed as the fifth runners-up. It’s been seven years after she won and it seems that it brought many significant changes in her life since then.
Netizens who follow her on Instagram noticed that she is not wearing a bathing suit for a while now. However, she instead wore a rush guard bikini that conceals her curvaceous body.
On her interview with PEP, she confirmed the reason why she is not wearing sexy swimsuit no. She said that as she comes closer to God, she put certain limitations on her clothing. Venus also said that it’s not a matter of reservation.
“You know, I’m getting old. I’ve matured, I’m turning thirty.
“Hindi siya limitations just because I want limitations.
“It’s because I’m getting mature and I’m having convictions, yun yung pinangangatawanan ko.
“Anything that I feel not biblical, it’s conviction.”
She also eased the matter by joking about her body.
“Hindi na rin kagandahan yung katawan ko, hindi na ako nagsu-swimsuit.
“Nakakahiya, baka masuka kayo.”
She was asked about her love life and she said that she has no suitors as of the moment.
“I’m happy and in love every day.
“Wala akong suitor, I am just really content with my relationship with the Lord every day.
“Bakit wala? I am just waiting, I am not pursuing.
“So, if there’s no one pursuing me, I can’t do anything about that.”
Cristina Decena, a businesswoman and co-host of Venus in “Business Flight” GMA News TV also confirmed Venus faith.
According to Cristina, Venus has a great impact on her life and also, it was Venus who taught her how to read the bible.
Cristina observed that Venus read the Bible every morning on their Asian cruise last April
“Di ba, may tinatawag na in God’s perfect time?
“Palagi akong nakakakita ng Bible, pero hindi ako nagbabasa.”
What Venus Raj drove her to also read the bible.
“Ngayon, hindi ko masimulan ang araw ko hangga’t hindi ko tinitingnan yung Verse of the Day.
“Kapag matutulog na ako, gusto ko nang mag-12 o’clock ng madaling-araw, kasi meron na naman bagong Verse of the Day.”
Aside from the impact Venus has in her faith, she also confessed that Venus helped her to heal her heart.
“Na-inspire ang buhay ko… from the start, maraming tao ang may atraso sa akin.
“Pero binuksan ni Venus yung isip ko sa salitang pagpapatawad, pagmamahal, lahat yun.”
Netizens showed their admiration for what Venus decided to do.
No bias, but this kind of women should be praised.
