Day in the Life of Candy
Hi, Candy girls!
How was your vacation last week? While Marla was enjoying the sights of Fort Ilocandia, I was in Baguio taking in the not-so-fresh mountain air but loving the cool, foggy weather. It’s been more than 10 years since my last visit to the summer capital of the Philippines (I was still a teen then!), so I was surprised to see how much things have changed.
I traveled to Baguio with my high school clique not because of a random tripping, but because our kabarkada got married there. On our way up, we all had fun by reminiscing about our high school days. (It’s really different when you’re still in school. I miss those days!) Before reaching the city, we took a snap in front of the lion/welcome sign. I remember it looking a little different then (maybe another color?), but I’m glad that it’s still there.
When we got to our cottage, I met this cute little baby girl named Colleen! She’s my kabarkada’s daughter, so I got to hang out with her a lot. I got so kilig when she’d see me and call out my name! She’s even cuter than her Care Bears stuffed toy.
I didn’t know my friend was getting married in the same church Aga Mulach and Charlene Gonzales got married in. Of course, my friend Leigh (who’s a fan of YES! Mag, with me in this snap) told me about it.
This is Mamoo, my friend who got married in Baguio. She looked so nice in her white gown, while I looked sinister in my sleek ‘do and furry black ensemble. (Can you say kontrabida?) This picture reminded me of the game Othello. Have you ever played that?
Two of my friends were part of the entourage, but despite that, we had time to pose for funny pics. (Clockwise from top) Here’s Chari, Blanche, Tin, and I giving our most sultry looks. Haha! I think we’ll need more practice to look alluring.
On the way home, we passed by an impressive restaurant in Tarlac called Isdaan. Aside from feeding the fishes, you could take pictures with the huge statues or walk down a long plank with a bucket of water to win one free kilo of fish. What I loved best was this area where you could release your anger by shouting “Tacsiyapo!” and smashing ceramic cups, old plates, or—get this—working television sets! My friends smashed a couple of cups, but we didn’t have the heart to break those TV sets since they each cost P1300!
Oh! If you’re a fan of the Peppermint Mocha, Toffee Nut Latte, or Gingerbread Latte drinks, head out to Starbucks now. These drinks are already available! I’m collecting those stickers so I could give the planner to my best friend who’s moving away soon. Waaah!
If you don’t want your Starbucks stickers, send them to me!

I won't deny it: I spend way too much time online. Mostly I'm just stalking people on Facebook and Instagram, other times I'm doing something more useful like reading articles...
