MANILA – Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and Miss World 2013 Megan Young were together in Vietnam a few days ago, with the two posting photos in their respective social media pages.

“‘Til next time, Vietnam!” Wurtzbach wrote as the caption to a photo showing her with Young in Ho Chi Minh City.

Young, for her part, said as she posted the same photo of her with Wurtzbach: “Back to regular programming. Had a great time in Vietnam even if it was a quick trip. Can’t wait to go back!”

The two also shared solo photos showing them all glammed up for an event.

So what were they doing in Vietnam?

It turns out that Wurtzbach and Young were invited to grace the launch of a training center for beauty queens in Vietnam, as reported by the pageant website The Philippine Pageantry, which covered the event.

Also present was Jonas Gaffud, the handler of the two titleholders. He shared photos from their Vietnam trip on his Instagram page.

This is not the first time that Filipina beauty queens were recognized by the Vietnamese community.

Last January, Wurtzbach, Young, and Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa were featured on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam.
