Five reasons why you should join the Rexona Run on October 26, 2014:

1. It’s going to be one big party! Can you run and dance at the same time? Because you can totes do both at this year’s most awesome run-party ever. Get pumped with music from the country’s top DJs, such as Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Deuce Manila, Martin Pulgar, Euric, Motherbasss, and MC Pao.

2. You get to pass through tunnels with different music themes. Running long distances can be a tad boring when there aren’t any interesting sights along the route. Trust us, there’s no way you’ll get bored in this run because at key points during the race, you’ll be able to experience the Retro, HipHop and EDM themed tunnels. They’ve got everything from roller bladers to disco balls, street art to laser light. (The 5-K and 10-K runners will go through two tunnels, while 21-K runners will be able to experience all three!)

3. You get a free training singlet which you can use during the event or anytime you want to work out. I’m loving to electric blue and neon green colors!

4. You can train with Coach Rio dela Cruz, one of the country’s top running coaches and cover star of Runner’s World Philippines. To have a good run and stay injury-free, you’ve got to get some training in. Luckily, Rexona will be holding free running clinics from September 16 to October 23. Led by Coach Rio, in collaboration with 360 Club Fitness, the clinics will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6-9 PM at the Fort. Sign up now at the Training Camp tab on the Rexona Facebook page.

Can You Break Out?

Have you ever imagined yourself in a horror movie? You and your friends go on a road trip. It’s getting dark and it’s raining hard, when all of a sudden, your car breaks down. So you decide to spend the night in an old hotel in the middle of nowhere. Little do you know, you’ll get locked inside with no way out. *cue freakish laughter* Buahahahaha!!!


Now, you can stop imagining and go experience this for yourself in Breakout Philippines’ Room 13 (minus the actual dangerous psycopath, but feeling all the real fears and anxiety!). In this real life escape room game, you’ll experience chills and thrills like no other. Before you go in, remember to work as a team in order to solve the puzzles and plot your escape. You only have 45 minutes.


Would you dare to enter? The Candy Team sure did!


Unfortunately, we did not escape within the time limit… but we still had an awesome time! :)


Go get your friends together and try it out for yourself! Maybe you’ll have better luck than us and make it into the wall of fame.


Breakout is located at the ground floor of Paragon Plaza, Reliance St. corner EDSA, Mandaluyong City. For more details, check out

You know what motivates me to exercise? (Aside from all the health benefits and the feel-good endorphins I’ll get…)

Cute workout clothes! And that’s exactly what we got at the launch of the Adidas #mygirls collection.

They train five to six days a week to maintain those killer bods. Can you say #fitspiration? (Trivia: Both girls were also former Candy cover girls!)
