MANILA – Sarah Lahbati is having the time of her life while on vacation with Richard Gutierrez and son Zion in Hawaii.
She went diving, sailed on a yacht, and surfed. But perhaps the most memorable one was when she swam with sharks.
Lahbati shared photos from the trip on her Instagram page, including an underwater shot with sharks around her.
“Every year, humans kill an estimated 100 million sharks for shark fin soup and by catch. These creatures are so beautiful and gentle compared to what is being depicted of them,” she wrote.
“They are an important part of the ocean's ecosystem so let’s do our part to keep them around for the future generations to come,” she added.
She also likened surfing to life where one goes through the cycle of being “terrified and excited, falling and getting back up.”
According to Lahbati, she “decided to live in the moment and stay off social media” during their vacation and “it’s been the best thing.”
