In Living Color! | Watsons Color Manila Challenge

I’ve been wanting to join one since I saw the photos from indian holy powder festivals (Holi) where people throw coloured powder into the air and mostly on other people.        Watsons Color Manila Challenge was at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds and the perfect starting point which was essentially a big pre-party party with everyone ready to get down and colorful. Sam YG hosted and rallied the crowd to do a warmup and a couple of dance moves. I ran the 10K, which was surprisingly challenging considering the …
