#CandyFair2012: The Show
Last September 22, thousands of Candy Girls converged at the Megatent Events Venue, Libis for #CandyFair2012. Gates opened a little after 10am and everyone was able to enjoy the game booths scattered around the fair grounds (we'll be uploading photos of the booths this week too!).
After lunch, the most awaited part of the fair was about to start. One by one, this year's batch of Candy Cuties went onstage to say hello to all the Candy Girls present. Who was your favorite?
In between performances, there were games to entertain the crowd. Candy Girls and Candy Cuties were all excited to participate! Our fun hosts were MYX VJs Chino Lui Pio and Bianca Roque.
This year, we were lucky to have lots of performers including X Factor USA's The Brewer Boys, Luigi D'Avola, the boys of Protege, Jake Vargas, Kit Thompson, Markki Stroem, Tweenhearts' Alden Richards, Teejay Marquez, Derrick Monasterio, Kristoffer Martin, and Ken Chan, Candy Cutie favorites James McDermott, Javy Gil, LA Aguinaldo, Nzo Sarmiento, and Rammy Bitong, Arkin Magalona, Elmo Magalona, and Ivan Dorschner.
Before we said good bye, all the celeb performers and Candy Cuties went onstage one last time to greet all the thrilled Candy Girls.

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
