The Wonka Imaginarium

My daughter. 6 years old chanted these as she prayed before her dinner,"Thank you, Lord, thank you, for the very beautiful day you gave us, very beautiful that mommy brought us to a place that's fun and beautiful..." Indeed, in spite of the hours we spent while braving Manila traffic at it's worst hour, bringing my kids to the event is not a thing I would be hesitant to.   Thanks to Miss Alma, of GMTMC, I was able to bring them, for the first time, since I've been blogging about events.   Not only them that had the best time, though we came late, but also me and hubby, seeing them have fun.   I actually got myself attending two events, one after another, with only a fraction of the time in between them.   We were supposed to go to Pan Pacific Hotel's Christmas Tree Lighting, but due to heavy traffic we weren't able to and at the middle of our drive to Malate, we decided to take the next street to Ortigas.
So you might be asking, what the heck I have been blogging about having my kids dragged into.   You too can experience the same thing and please never leave kids at home, might as well bring the who;e family and neighborhood with you.
All you need to have is...
From December 1 to 4, a different kind of world comes to life as Candy Corner, in partnership with Wonka, opens the doors of an enchanted factory that harvests dreams and turns them into candies—the Wonka Imaginarium.

A four-day exhibit that puts the spotlight on Wonka candies, the Wonka Imaginarium allows everyone to bring their candy fantasies to life. Here, you’ll be able to walk into a magical forest with giant bugs and talking trees; enter a tunnel of lost wishes and forgotten dreams; fly and fall from the sky; and learn magic straight from a witch—all to find the rainbow: the dream that makes the happiest of all candies.

“The Wonka Imaginarium is the first of its kind in the Philippines, and we’re happy to be doing this in time for the holiday season,” shares Ricky Andres, President of Candy Corner Philippines. “More than just giving everyone a chance to get to know more about Wonka candies, our main goal is to give people of all ages a great avenue to feed their imagination and to find a different, unique activity for the whole family to share this Christmas.”

 A candy brand that uses licensed materials from Roald Dahl's Charlie & the Chocolate Factory and its two movie adaptations, Wonka’s distinct packaging and colorful taste has propelled it to become Candy Corner’s flagship brand.
 These are quality candies that have found their way into the hearts of many Filipinos,” adds Ricky. “Many of our best sellers such as Nerds and Pixy Stix are actually products of the brand, and that’s why we’re very proud to be distributing their candies here in the country.”

The first outlet in the Philippines to combine traditional packaged and novelty sweets with the concept of having customers choose and combine their own selections of treats, Candy Corner has, over the years, consistently provided chocolates and candies to satisfy the local demand for international confectionery brands. Since its humble beginnings as a lone store in 1996, the company, over the years has expanded immensely, and currently has branches across the country. 
So let's all go to the Atrium of Shangri La Plaza and for a day be like Charlie, as he entered a different world full of candies and the colorful world of Wonka Imaginarium.
