Vacation is finally here, Candy Girls, and we know you've been waiting for this time for months. We really can't blame you because you've spent most of your months staying up until the early hours of the morning just to finish your school requirements. So now that your break is finally here, we want to encourage you to go out and explore the world.

If you don't know where and how to start, then let teen king Daniel Padilla and teen queen Kathryn Bernardo show you around the Philippines because, in case you haven't noticed, their movies are mostly shot in picturesque locations in our country. If you want to relive their sweet moments together, why don't you visit these places this vacation.

  1. Plantation Bay Resort & Spa in Marigondon, Mactan Island, Cebu

Remember Kath and DJ's very first movie Must Be...Love? Reminisce that very first time you fell in love and got your heart broken when you go to one of the locations for this couple's first starring movie as a love team.

  1. Mayon Volcano in Legazpi City, Albay

Who would ever forget this location featured in KathNiel's blockbuster movie She's Dating the Gangster, right? Kenji and Athena swore their love for each other with the majestic Mayon Volcano in the background.

And this summer, it's your turn to do that! Go on a trip to one of the world's most photogenic volcanoes by bringing your loved ones with you to Legazpi City, Albay in the Bicol region.

  1. Mt. Pinatubo in Zambales 

Stand in awe once you get to this "beautiful disaster," in the words of Kath's character in Crazy Beautiful You. Not only will you be able to view the crystal clear waters of the Crater Lake, you will also get to ride the 4x4 (how badass!) and interact with one of the oldest indigenous tribes in the Philippines, the Aetas.

  1. Bukilat Cave, Camotes group of Islands in Tudela, Cebu

One of the things we really loved about Can't Help Falling in Love, aside from KathNiel of course, was how it featured Cebu's most beautiful spots. We loved it so much that we can't wait to get there ASAP, especially to Bukilat Cave.

The Bukilat Cave was used as shelter during the World War II for people residing in the area, and was even rumored for having hidden treasures in its surrounding area. Nowadays, tourists go to this hidden gem to see the beautiful rock formations inside.

  1. Osmeña Peak in Oslob, Cebu

Another scenic location featured in KathNiel's Can't Help Falling in Love is Osmeña Peak, a famous hiking destination in Cebu. Just like this couple, go and hike with your loved ones until you reach the highest point in the island of Cebu.

"Today, I Won"

I always caught feelings for someone, and hoped so much that one day there could a thing between the two of us. I'm usually the one that makes the effort to buy and/or make cute gifts, chats them every other day, and stays up all night with him.

When I was 16, my childhood crush suddenly came back into my life. We'd constantly send updates to each other, recommend favorite songs and talk even the most random things. He'd even text me as early as 6 to just greet me good morning almost everyday. I hoped so much that when I confessed, he suddenly stopped talking to me.

For short, he ghosted me. Those 6 months I spent talking to him, allotting my time for him, and staying up until 3 am for him - all gone in a simple confession. Although I had a few crushes before him, he's the only one that got me in real pain. It was the kind of pain that I never thought I'd experience. It was the kind of pain that I couldn't believe.

After 7 years (it happened back in 2017), I thought he came back into my life to stay, but I guess he's just one of the guys who distanced. I felt a complete loser that time. But during this quarantine, everything was different. I caught feelings for someone else, but he treated me with the best kindness yet.

It happened at 2 am, May 30, 2020, when I impulsively confessed my feelings through messaging him. After saying my feelings, he responded with genuine and kind words. We both even complimented each other. Although the feelings didn't reciprocate, I still found a connection that can't be replaced with any guy.

To my 16 year old self, here I am, 18 and happy. You may have felt that time was the biggest regret and loss, but I'm here to tell you, we won. Today, I won.

Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.

5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
