Beauty queen MJ Lastimosa has been having the best time bonding with her Miss Universe "sisters" in Mexico.
Based on her Instagram updates, the Miss Universe Philippines 2014 titleholder was reunited with her batchmates during a group trip in Isla Mujeres, a famous Mexican island located just off the coast of Cancun.
