Off My Bucket List: Kart Racing

Last week, City Kart Racing (CKR) invited us over to try and drive around its 700-meter kart track—complete with straights and technical turns for speed-lovers to enjoy.

Yes, I took a nice photo of the track too. Hehe. Hello, panorama!

And because I’m adventurous (HAHAHAHA!), I had to try it of course. It was nerve-wracking and super fun at the same time. I never felt my heart beat faster since seeing Ansel Elgort on the big screen for the first time in Carrie (sorry, I’m blabbing, haha)! But above all the excitement and the experience, what I’ve come to realize really is that driving isn’t as easy as it looks like. I truly salute everyone who drives for a living and those who do it for fun or because they love it. :thumbsup:

Want to try it yourself? Here are few things you should remember before stepping on that gas pedal and driving to infinity and beyond, Candy Girls.

  1. Walk the track. Get a feel of the place first, so you can prep yourself for the twists and turns when you’re actually racing.
  2. Listen to the briefing well. CKR chairman Jean-Marc Freihuber gave us a few reminders before we got into driving. He gave us a few reminders and encouragements so we’d know what to do once we’re inside the track.
  3. Double check everything. Make sure you’re wearing the proper footwear, racing suit, and helmet—not too tight and not too loose.
  4. Pray for safety. There’s no way you can hurt yourself, but a short word asking Him to protect you from anything and everything (especially those nerves that will start kicking in once you’re sitting in the driver’s seat) won’t hurt either. #JesusTakeTheWheel
  5. Just enjoy the ride. As cliche as it may sound, that’s the most important thing you should etch in your head and heart. Put on Tris’s dauntless spirit and you’re set to make your way to the finish line. Don’t forget to step on the brakes and slow down a little to live in the moment because CKR’s track is larger than life. Okay, I may be exaggerating, but it’s the only track I’ve been in so I won’t really know. Haha! :P

What are you waiting for, Candy Girls? Bring your family and friends over to CKR now. It’s located at Circuit Makati in Barangay Carmona, Makati City. Remember to call them first at 09174551060 because reservation is a must. CKR is open from Monday to Thursday, 3PM to 11PM, and from Friday to Sunday, 10AM-12MN.

And if you’re feeling a bit profesh about this, why don’t you try your hand at CKR’s first major project for the year—the Race to Boracay, wherein you can mingle with your fellow speed enthusiasts and get all competitive? This race is open for juniors (13-17 years old) and adults (18 years old and above). For more information, you may log on to www.citykartracing.com.

1. A fluffy puppy’s adorable waddle run—especially when he’s welcoming you home after a long day
2. Friends who won’t always take your side, but will always be BY your side
3. Overhearing your mom or dad telling someone how proud they are of you
4. Chancing upon the last available stock of the perfect pair of shoes in your size
5. Finding crumpled notes in the bottom of your oversized bag, or finding notes, period
6. Waking up in time for a good workout, a healthy, delicious breakfast, a cute outfit, and great hair
7. Realizing that it’s almost the end of the year, then looking back and knowing it’s shaped up to be a wonderful one so far

What’s on YOUR list of life’s sweet things? :-)

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.
