Photohunt: Candy

Photobucket


Candy Corner

Treats we look forward to whether we're 9 or 99. A bribe for drinking your medicine, reward for being good, or the thing that cause your punishment in the first place. They sure bring to mind a lot of fond memories.

Candies at the Corner


A livelihood for a lot of Filipinos. The difference between imminent death and daily survival. This particular candy kit can be found in almost all corners of the metropolis along with the other staple, cigarettes.

Funny how we can think of one and not the other.

But I like how you described that--social paradox.
