I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Hong Kong because it’s one of my most favorite cities to visit. Sharing with you some snaps from my recent trip. :)

1. Laduree macarons are always on my must-have list. I know they can be a bit pricey but really worth it. I love macarons! I wonder how true the rumors are that they’ll be coming to Manila soon?

2. Went to the happiest place on earth, Disneyland, and teared up a bit during the fireworks at night.

3. Had a taste of some yummy Ferrero liquid nitrogen ice cream. There was a long queue when we went here but worth the wait.

4. Kowloon Dairy fresh milk. I had this every day of my trip, hahaha!

5. Wore layers and layers because it was coooold (brrr) but the weather was a nice change from the tropical climate we have in Manila.

6. Chanced upon this conveyor belt type sushi restaurant called Genki Sushi. The beef one was super good.

7. Took a snap at Lab Made, the ice cream place. Found the pop up store so cute.

8. Bought my favorite Japanese mags for inspiration and happy vibes.

9. Drank lots of hot soy milk, perfect for the cold weather there.

I don’t know if I ever told you the story how I met Simone Legno of Tokidoki but I did, 6 years ago to be exact, at Graphika Manila. I’m still a huge fan of Simone and Tokidoki so imagine my surprise when Macy told me that he’d be here again!  :x

Even more surreal was how I was able to collaborate with him at the LeSportsac event. He drew Unicorno for me and I painted the colors and stars. Check out my work of “art” below. :) Haha kidding, but I’m calling it stephiewon x tokidoki.

It was a super fun experience and I’m really thankful (#blessed?) for this opportunity. <3 Way to end 2014, right?

Last Monday, Ayessa, Erin, and I got to try the limited edition Chef’s Choice Smokehouse Burger from Caliburger. crafted by one of the country’s well-known chefs, Chef Rob Pengson.

It’s basically a bacon cheeseburger with crispy onion rings, tomatoes, pickles, and a maple-mustard BBQ sauce. The beef patty was super moist and flavorful—it was super duper yummy! We loved it so much that we’re definitely going back for more. But it’s only on a limited run from November 17 (today!) to December 17 so I suggest you rush to Caliburger to try this amazing concoction. You won’t be sorry, I promise!

Caliburger is located at 4F Century City Mall, Kalayaan Ave, Makati.

Two days to go before the #CandyFair2014 and we at the Candy HQ are way beyond excited.  :x Sooo excited that I’m already planning what to bring! Keep in mind to bring only the essentials so you won’t be carrying a huge bag and you’ll be free to dance around all day.  See you there at the Metrotent on September 27!

When I first heard that the theme for the #CandyFair2014 was EDM, I had no idea what to wear whatsoever! Luckily, Erin’s style guide was super helpful. So I *think* I may have a Candy Fair outfit after all. This is what I’m planning to wear, EDM style but still my girly and classic self. Do you already have an outfit planned? See you there!  :beautifuleyes:

P.S.
I want to see what you’re wearing, too! Post your #candyootd on Instagram and don’t forget to tag us @candymagdotcom and use the hashtag #candyEDM.
