Enteng Kabisote and The Abangers: Set To Save the World from Digital Menace

In the tradition of offering family-friendly fare, Vic Sotto and his Dabarkads are back for another blockbuster fantasy-adventure movie based on the well-loved Pinoy pop culture icon! Kids are in for a treat as Bossing reprises his beloved role as Enteng Kabisote in the latest instalment of the movie series titled:  Enteng Kabisote 10 and The Abangers.

The comedy-adventure movie follows the reluctant hero in his latest fantastical escapade.  Through hard work and determination, Enteng Kabisote has used his talent to “butingting everything” to become an ironworks and robotics magnate. Since his last adventure in Engkantasya, he has settled down to becoming a successful businessman, community leader, and a doting grandfather to his cute and bubbly grandchild Benokis, as his son Benok (Oyo Boy Sotto) tackles fatherhood and his duty as a law enforcer.  Little does he know that trouble is brewing and he will be called on once again to save the world.

Enteng’s nemesis is Kwak-kwak (played by Epi Quizon), a power-obsessed villain who was booted out from Engkantasya. He has the capability to control minds who has launched a virtual reality game that transmits his mind control to anyone who plays it. 

The villainous plot is helped along by Bibi, Kwak-kwak’s devoted second-in-command and Bibe, his moronic but useful sibling, along with A1/ALLAN & A2/ALLAINE, the two creators of the viral game app which Kwak-Kwak uses as a channel to spread his psychic powers to control humankind.

To defeat Kwak-kwak and restore order in the real world, Enteng calls upon a team of misfits, who form his Abangers team. They are individuals who have unusual special powers and have been waiting for a long time to put these powers into good use.  The Abangers are actually OEWs (overseas engkantasya workers), whose powers Kwak-kwak needs to harness in order to fulfill his nefarious mission. 

On his team, Enteng has three inimitable sisters: Nidora (Wally Bayola), a fierce but values-centric granny who possesses an equally fierce loud voice called "The Incredible Voice"; Tinidora (Jose Manalo), who has very quick reflexes and engaging dance moves called "The Flash Dance", and Tidora (Paolo Ballesteros), a flirtatious hot granny who channels her hot flashes to other persons through her stare. They are joined by Remy or “The Mister Iron", a tour guide and family guy who can seemingly flatten any tangible materials, Oring, a spunky female fortune teller in Quiapo who can perfectly predict anyone’s future but only for a span of two minutes, Lucas, a muscled handsome guy from Tondo who possesses incredible strength and a high pitched voice, and Bistika, a standup gay comedian who can perfectly blend himself with his surroundings -- while doing some pakganern splits!

Will Enteng and the Abangers be able to save the world? Moviegoers can find out in theaters on November 30, 2016. The movie is directed by Marlon Rivera and Tony Y. Reyes, and produced by OctoArts Films, M-Zet Productions and APT Entertainment.

Best Argan Oil for Skin from Nailaholics

Just when the holiday spirit fills the air the clamor to look good and feel good will start to build in some pressure. It is almost a must to look your best as the holiday season comes rushing in and one important aspect of our beauty that we look forward in taking care of is our skin. 

The tropical climate where we live in can contribute to skin issues with the variable changes in weather- from sudden rainfalls to intense heat during the day, it could only make matters worse. These changes in humidity and other environmental factors as well as our food indulgence can visibly take a toll on our skin keeping it off balance with a dull complexion.

Good thing we know the basics- getting enough rest, proper diet, good hydration and exercise will help in keeping our skin healthy. But Mother Nature knows best, we are blessed with a perfect solution to solve our skin woes and one of them is by using ARGAN OIL.

What is ARGAN OIL?

Argan Oil is derived from Argan tree that grows abundantly in the southern region of Morocco. This Mediterranean nature’s wonder produces a “miracle skin cure” in a form of pure argan oil extract that has high levels of antioxidants, polyunsaturated fat, essential fatty acids, vitamins A and E. 

The Moroccan pure argan oil is considered as a potent tonic for skin and hair since it has many properties. It helps boost moisture form deep within making the skin appear youthful and glowing. Moroccan pure argan oil also has anti-inflammatory property that will ease out uneven skin tone, dull texture and fine lines keepingskin elasticity, smoothness and firmness.

Just imagine what a few drops of pure argan oil can do to your skin or hair? What’s even more amazing is that you could easily mix it with your usual skin regimen products or simply apply it directly on your skin by gently massaging this miracle oil to be fully absorbed.

Many ways to use pure argan oil:

Where to buy pure argan oil?

The argan oil 50ml is at only Php 790.00 while the bestselling pure argan oil 100ml retails for only Php 1390. And the best part of this deal is you get the same bottle of argan oil for free!!!

 It’s important to note though that you get the real deal. So be sure to get it from somewhere that has a longstanding reputation of reliability and quality. It’s the concentration of argan oil that allows you to receive all its benefits, so make sure you’re getting it from a brand that can be trusted when they say that they are giving you a bottle with no artificial preservatives,” says Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head.

Nailaholics Get Pampered and Stamped

Living in a tropical country certainly has a lot of perks. Perpetually sunny days, year-round airy summer fashion, and an annual healthy glow, thanks to a regular dose of vitamin D- these are the joys of living in a friendly warm climate.

This also means it’s nearly always sandal-seaon. While not necessarily a drawback, it does take a lot of work to make sure your tips and toes are perpetually ready to be on display.

This is probably the reason, on top of the need to indulge in some much needed me-time, why you frequent your favorite nail salon so much. But Nailaholics is making it a whole lot easier for you to make sure you keep your tips and toes in top shape, get pampered, and keep coming back for more.

“Each visit to Nailaholics beginning November 21 until March 31 means you’re pampering yourself for a bonus little treat,” says Lorraine Baterina- spoke person for Nailaholics.

Avail of your regular manicure and pedicure or indulge in one of Nailaholics’ signature packages and treatments and make sure that you get you Pampering Card stamped. Get five stamps and you get your sixth mani-pedi for free.

“This is our way of making sure that you’re hands and feet are completely ready no matter what season, and of course, letting our loyal customers know that we appreciate them,” says Lorraine Baterina, Brand Officer.
