Shay, being half-Filipino on her mother's side, appeared to enjoy getting in touch with her roots; she highlighted the warmth of signature Philippine hospitality that greeted her at her arrival, the scrumptious local seafood she feasted on during her stay, and of course, Palawan's beautiful sights that she called paradise.

A couple of snaps focused on her chic animal-print swimsuit that flattered her fit figure in all the best ways, and the accessories she paired with it too—trendy oversized pearl hoop earrings and dark tinted retro sunglasses.
