YM Magazine

February 1, 2007 at 6:39 pm 3 comments

Is YM still around? I loved having that magazine. I went out of my way every month (from 1997-1999) and bought issues of YM or Seventeen magazine. I didn’t like their fashion articles so much because they were so outrageous for them Philippine setting but I did adore their Trauma-Rama section (you write to them about your deepest darkest secrets), the Astrology section, YM’s numerology, and their teenage quizzes.


Back then, Emode’s presence was not that felt (Emode’s this fantastic website that allows you to take tests about your personality, your IQ, your EQ, etc. Visit them at http://www.emode.com!). My friends and I went gaga over the ‘Is He into You’? type of quizzes in YM. That magazine had the best quizzes ever. They even had an issue where it’s full of psychological quizzes!


What magazines did you read before? Other magazines that I used to read were Glamour (yes, it’s not a teen magazine), and A*Teen (local magazine).

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
