The Candy eds share the biggest misconceptions about them. How about you, what are yours?

miac.jpg My guy friends say I look like the type of girl who isn't easy to talk to and someone they can't bring to just any old place. But I actually love getting to know people, and I love gorging on street food like fish balls and ice cream from the cart! Yum! Mia, Editor in Chief
mimi.jpg That I'm a tough gal. But inside, I'm a real softie. :) —Mimi, Managing Editor
jennie.jpg That I'm mataray and dumb. Maybe the first one is true. Hehe. But not the second. —Jennie, Beauty Editor
angel.jpg People always think of me as a "goody-two-shoes," especially back in school, just because I had high grades and didn't want to cut class too often. I think the fact that my name is "Angel" makes them think that too. Yes, I'm generally a nice person, but they just don't know, I can be pretty naughty too! *devilish grin here* :p —Angel, Assistant Features Editor
marla.jpg That I'm naive and I can't take care of myself-because being childlike is very different from being childish. I am actually quite independent (I can commute, I do household chores, and I've been living away from home for almost six years!). I'm not as fragile and vulnerable as I seem. As my Kuya would put it, "Do not underestimate Marla." Hehe. :P Marla, Editorial Assistant
macy.jpg A lot of people think that just because I graduated from Assumption, I talk like this: "I want to make tusok-tusok the fish balls." I most definitely do not. I can totally speak straight English or straight Filipino, any day. d: Oh, and I don't eat fish balls, I like kwek-kwek. Haha! —Macy, Web and Mobile Producer
roch.jpg Friends would tell me that their first impression of me was that I'm masungit and high maintenance. Later did they know that I'm the nicest and the most baduy person they will ever meet haha! :D —Roch, Web and Mobile Producer
