QUEZON CITY, Philippines—On Wednesday, July 25, Martina Eileen Hernandez delas Alas-Sibayan, one of the country’s box-office stars continue to shine not just in films and television, but has continually conquered the advertising world as she recently renewed her partnership with Marikina Food Corporation, the manufacturer of HOBE, the brand name for quick cook noodles.
Present in the said contract signing was Bobby Co, president and CEO of Marikina Food Corporation.
For the four years that delas Alas has been the face of HOBE, the company has managed to rake in sales returns, which made the management decide to continue forging its alliance with comedy actress for the fourth time.
Apart from Ai-Ai’s favorite HOBE Special Bihon that is made of using state-of-the art production processes from only the finest-milled cornstarch; there is also Golden Me Bihon (Budget Pack), Hobe Pancit Luglug or Palabok, Hobe Express Instant Bihon (with variants of Chicken Guisado, Seafood Guisado and Oriental Guisado), Hobe Pancit Canton, and Hobe Misua (Chinese Somen).
Of all the successes that Ai-Ai has right now—having been married to Gerald Sibayan, she has shows on GMA Kapuso Network—Sunday Pinasaya and The Clash. She also has a film entry to the 2018 Cinemalaya via School Service.
The actress-singer-endorser-and-entrepreneur, Ara Mina is initating a fun run and dubbed it as ‘tARA na sa Arena 2018’ on Sunday, May 27 at the Philippine Arena grounds. The event is for the benefit of persons with Down Syndrome at the Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines.
For Ara, this is not her first-ever initiative, but her second after she did a successful fund-raising concert in Araneta Coliseum back in 2006. A year after, she established the Ara Mina Foundation, which suports children with birth defects. It is not unknown to many that the 39-year-old star is the sister of Mina Princess Klenk a.k.a. Batching, who has Down Syndrome and will soon be turning 26 this June 1.
During the press conference, she also revealed that Batching is her lucky charm eversince she started in the entertainment industry. She recalled that she auditioned for Star Magic back then but she wasn’t fortunate enough to be included in the cut; but when her sister with Down Syndrome was born—her lucky streak came as she was chosen to be part of the longest-running youth-oriented variety show—‘That’s Entertainment’ which was headed by the late Master Showman at the time—German ‘Kuya Germs’ Moreno.
The upcoming fun ride will be participated by celebrity-volunteers who will be sprinting around the 100-heactare grounds of Ciudad de Victoria, a tourism enterprise zone in Bocaue, Bulacan. In the morning till 10 in the evening, there’ll be ‘tiangges’ or bazaars for those families and visitors who will be coming to the whole-day affair that Ara is putting up. Martin Nievera is set to have a meini-concert in the evening as well.
Ara hopes to raise at least Php1M from the said event.
For one-night only at the Music Museum on May 18, a Friday, four Kapuso hunks—Rocco Nacino, Derrick Monasterio, Jak Roberto and Dave Borneo promise to heighten the summer heat because of their gorgeous physiques as they are joined by two of today’s popular gay comedians—Super Teklah and Donita Nose in a show titled ‘Oh, BOY! & Oh, LOL!’.
Given that the concert is just a night, the production (CCC Productions) behind the success of the shows of Vice Ganda, Julie Anne San Jose, Kyla, and Alden Richards to name a few—are out to duplicate its feat. Marvin Caldito will be the director and will provide a good mix of fun and entertainment—that is funny and peppered with sexy and lively musical numbers.
Obviously, it’s going to rain with real brawny and breathtaking bodies of these men who are all-out to satisfy the fantasies of their audience by providing them with spectacularly arresting or appealing individual and group performances.
When the four equally irresistible good-looking young artists were asked if what benefit they get in performing live apart from acting on television and in films—they were unanimous in their reply—why not explore the said venue in order to hone their skills to be versatile and become total performers. After all, the four guys do know how to sing thus doing the said show may just be a breeze for them.
And to ease down the probable sexual tension that might be built by the Kapuso hunks—comedians and former co-hosts of ‘Wowowin’—Super Teklah and Donita Nose are to the rescue in neutralizing the show from being serious and sensuous to being hilarious. Audience will have to expect never-before-seen acts that will surely set the stage on fire.
