Typhoon Fails to Dampen Spirits of Candy Fairgoers

Here's what happened at the Candy Fair.

September 26, 2009, Manila — Despite the heavy rains and floods caused by Typhoon Ondoy, loyal readers of Candy magazine braved the storm to get to the Candy Fair at the Mega Tent Events Venue in Pasig. Candy is the Philippines' number one magazine for teens and the fair is an annual event for their readers.

Candy's Team Publisher Christine Ko explains more about the magazine and the Candy Fair. "We help Candy girls about every aspect of their lives like school, relationships with their friends, families, and boys. We tackle all their interests: books, pop culture, music, movies, the latest celebrities, and other stuff like fashion and beauty. The Candy Fair is an annual event which is basically a gathering of all the Candy Cuties, the Candy Girls, and the TeenTalkers." TeenTalkers are members of TeenTalk, the message board of Candymag.com.

At the fair, guests could go around the different booths to play games, shop for items like accessories and bags, watch a fashion show by clothing line Terranova, and interact with the Candy Cuties-a pool of the cutest guys the magazine features every year. The Candy girls could even "get married" to a Candy Cutie of their choice at the Goldilocks Marriage Booth.

Actors and former Candy cover boys Dino Imperial and AJ Perez also graced the event despite the storm. They came up with an impromptu dance tutorial which the girls enjoyed.

Despite the low turnout, Candy Girl Ana Gonzales, who has been reading the magazine since she was in grade school, attests that the event was not a failure. "It's super fun to interact with the Candy editors, celebrities, and all the Candy girls. It's all rainy outside but here it's super fun. Everyone's having a great time with all the freebies and the program."

Though the event was cut short due to the weather, the Candy Girls went home with lots of goody bags, autographs of their favorite celebrities, photos with the Candy Cuties, and even more fond memories with their "best-est friend."
