A week after the Miss Universe pageant, four candidates rewarded themselves with a much-deserved vacation in different Philippine beaches.
Miss Israel Yam Kaspers made sure she'd see the country's island known for its powdery sand.
It may be recalled that 16 candidates had the chance to enjoy Boracay last January 14, but Yam was not included in the batch.
Basking under the Boracay sun, Yam called it “paradise.”
She loved the shores so much that she wrote, “Never going back home.”
