Don't let the rains and worsening traffic of the metro stop you from having fun with your friends. With some strategic planning, you can still make the most out of this month, exploring places and events you haven't been to. And for you to do just that, we thought of coming up with a few recommendations. Own September, Candy Girl!

 1  Sing along with Carly Rae Jepsen at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Carly Rae Jepsen is making us really, really like her more and more with her string of catchy pop hits. If you like her and her music just as much as we do, catch her at her Manila concert on September 14. It will be a fun night of singing and dancing with your girlfriends. Tickets are at P1,500 to P5,000. For inquiries, call Ticketnet at (02) 911-5555.


 2  Try the tacos at Taco Vengo.

There's a new taco place in town you shouldn't miss. For a budget of P300, you can already get stuffed with Taco Vengo's offerings. The steak and pork tacos are worth trying, and if you have some more room, the nachos, too. Also have fun taking pictures of their container van-inspired interiors. Check Taco Vengo out on Facebook TacoVengo for updates.

 3  Bring back summer at Slidefest Philippines in Alabang.

Rates start at P500 and go up to P1,600. For more information, check Slidefest Philippines out at www.slidefest.com.ph.

 4  Get stuffed at Valero Eat Street.

If you haven't been to one of the food pop-ups in the city, then you need to come out to the Valero Eat Street on September 19, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Different establishments, even those based outside of Makati City, will be presenting their culinary masterpieces. There will also be cooking demos you can be a part of! Check out ValeroEatStreet for updates.
