Isn’t there something really cute about a dress + leggings + trainers combo?

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:

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.

I’ve never really been into dancing (never mind the fact that I’m not good at it at all!). But I do love watching other people dance. Seeing their heart poured into a single performance is always nothing short of moving.

Dance X from Xavier School

In their second year, SMART Jump In Dance-off held the Metro Manila leg of their qualifying round in two venues: SM Mall of Asia and SM City North EDSA last Sunday, September 7. In an effort to expand their reach and make more dreams happen, SMART decided to include grade school teams this year. Over 25 hopefuls from schools, colleges, and universities across the Metro came together to battle out their moves on the stage. And, in order to make it to the final show, which will be held on October 5 at the SMART Araneta Coliseum, each team must gain enough text votes, which will then be added to the scores the judges gave them.

Sayawatha Dance Troupe from Miriam College

Being able to catch the show in SM City North EDSA, I would say I was really impressed by the well-thought-out routines presented by the contestants. It’s simply amazing to see all these kids and teenagers – most of them younger than me – move to the beat of the music almost flawlessly. I cannot dance to save my life, but they sure can!

Love At First Slurp

I’m a big ramen fan, which is why when I found out that Ippudo, Japan’s highly acclaimed ramen emporium, was coming to Manila, I got pretty excited. Even more so when I found out that they were giving me a sneak taste of the famous ramen place founded by Japan’s Ramen King Shigemi Kawahara. But before I fill you in on my Ippudo experience, you must know that I’m no food critic or official foodie. I basically discern food as your basic food lover–someone who knows how to appreciate good food, at least I think so!

The title basically sums up my feelings about the ramen at Ippudo. It really was love at first slurp and I almost couldn’t stop eating until I realized that I had to take a photo and document my delicious bowl. I got the Akamaru Shinaji which is served in a big red bowl with Ippudo’s original tonkotsu broth enhanced with special blended miso paste and fragrant garlic oil. It’s also served with thin noodles, pork belly, kikurage, and spring onions. It’s described as a refined, modern-style ramen and this is how it looks like! Btw I chose the hard noodles option.


They also serve two other ramen dishes, Shiromaru Classic and Karaka-men. Also, lots of really yummy side dishes to complement their ramen like Hakata-Style Gyoza, Dashimaki Tamago, Agadeshi Tofu, and more. My favorite is their pork buns!

Ippudo’s flagship store officially opens tiday at the 3rd level of the Mega Fashion Hall of SM Megamall! I highly recommend for you to go check it out ;)

’till next time!

I’m obsessed!

Knee-high boots have been popping up at the international runway shows, so don’t be surprised if your fave A-list celebs start strutting about town wearing them. Expect some knee-high moments in the magazine very soon, too!

Though it might be tricky to pull them off here, won’t it be nice to take a pair to an overseas trip? I’d like to see your gutsy knee-high boot look! Tag me on Twitter or Instagram at @jedgcandy.
