We're back this month to give you some recommendations, so you can make the most out of your time with your barkada. Good old hangouts are cool, yes, but we say it's best to vary your experiences. Try something you haven't done before with the gang, and explore what these different spots and happenings have to offer. Enjoy August, you Candy Girl you!

Get cultured at Cinemalaya 2015
Cultural Center of the Philippines, CCP Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City and select Greenbelt 3 cinemas

It's time to go shopping for quality local indie films from August 7-15. Get cultured with your girlfriends, and learn to appreciate what your local filmmakers have to offer. The festival is a refreshing break from mainstream movies that, although entertaining, can be formulaic and predictable. For updates and announcements, be sure to check out cinemalaya.org and culturalcenter.gov.ph.

A plate starts at P139, and it's more than enough to satisfy a hungry tummy. They have pork chops, too, and an interesting array of sides.
