On September 17-18 at WhiteSpace, Makati, Spectrum Fair Manila celebrated their first birthday and decided to do it the same way they always do: fun, colorful, and whimsical! Spectrum Fair is a one of its kind indoor-outdoor fair that offers its visitors to shop for an all around variety of food, arts & crafts, clothing, and even travel essentials.There was good music playing by local talent as visitors went around to shop, complete with a lounge area to just stick around after. On top of that, most booths showcased proudly locally made products by innovative minds. It had an especially happy atmosphere because you can feel the pool of energy in the area from the people, the music, and the colorful decor.
Come and take a look at some of our favourites from the Spectrum Fair!
8. Six Chicks

Six Chicks was literally made by six chicks. Six girls from a barkada who came together to offer everyone
different types of sandwiches – pulled pork, chicken & andalouse sauce, hazelnut & gouda, and more.
They decided to incorporate the Retro theme to their sandwiches, hence the diner colors and even a kick at their menu names:
Porky Town, On the Loose, Groovin TUNA-ight, and Have a GOUDA time
They are always open to invitations!
7. Soak Artisan Soap
Hand crafted in the Philippines, Soak Artisan Soap was definitely something you couldn’t miss because of the fragrance you catch when you pass by their stall. Their products include: bath bombs, soap macarons, linen spray and soap flavors you won’t see anywhere else!

All of his baked goods are homemade and mixed in small batches, made from the utmost love and passion from this guy, (on the left) Cy Ynares. With his love for baking, he makes his products all made, shaped, chilled, baked and packed by hand. No wonder why these cookies tasted so special. He even made his own Birthday Cake cookie just for Spectrum’s first birthday! His other cookie flavors with its own special textures include: Milo Dinosaur, Compost Cookie, Choco Chocollow, Salted Caramel and White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie.
