MOVIE TRAILER: Abay Babes [in cinemas September 19] - YouTube
Many years after high school, Emerald, Ruby, Perla, and Goldie (considered the Bicol “It Girls” of their batch) are reunited for the latter’s upcoming wedding. Joining them is Jade, Goldie’s friend from America. Everyone is excited about this get-together, but somehow, Goldie’s friends are finding it hard to believe that she is going to be the first to fulfill their dream of getting married, considering that she is the least attractive among them.
Emerald, Ruby and Perla secretly joke that Goldie might just be making this all up. And when they can’t see any videos or pictures of the groom, Zack, the three start to take their joke seriously. As if their skepticism is not enough, their past issues against one another are also reopened. At a time when friendship and love are supposed to be celebrated, will doubt and rivalry get the better of them?
Playing the role of Emerald is Nathalie Hart who entered showbiz in 2008 through ABS-CBN’s Star Magic. In May 2018, she was the cover of the final print issue of FHM. Emerald has the alias “Bicol Express” because, according to her, she is the hottest among her friends. She works as a commercial model.
Ruby, the class topnotcher back in high school and is now a doctor, is played by Cristine Reyes. She is called “Pili Nuts” because, ultimately, guys would choose her beauty over all others. (Piliis the Tagalog for choose.) Cristine shared in an interview that she enjoyed jamming with the girls between takes. Her last film was a family drama, making this comedy film really fun to do.
Perla, who is called “Mt. Mayon” because of its perfect shape, just like her figure, is played by Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa. She has appeared in the movies “Ang Panday” and “Kasal”, but this is her first leading role. “I have this desire to be really good at something,” Kylie once said in an interview. “I want to be good at acting, not being an artista.”
Goldie, the class clown in the movie, is played by Roxanne Barcelo who is also the funniest one in the cast. Goldie is given the moniker, “Abaca” (fiber, in English), because she is the toughest of them all. In real life, Roxanne has both the toughness and the talents (like singing and hosting) that are necessary to last in the world of show business.
Jade, the videographer who will document the girls’ road trip to the wedding venue, is played by Meg Imperial. A recent IG post of Meg is captioned “Once you become fearless, life becomes limitless.” Indeed, Meg’s career is flourishing because she is open to doing different roles.
ABAY BABES also stars Tom Rodriguez, Marco Gumabao, Mark Bautista, Candy Pangilinan and many more. Directed by Don Cuaresma, the movie will open on September 19 in cinemas nationwide.
Do you know that Perla remains the number one choice of many Filipinas when it comes to maintaining delicate clothes for almost 7 decades?
I'm a proud Perla users for almost 16 years now!
As a Filipina and a mother, I know that Perla is the perfect partner in taking care of our special clothes such as baby clothes and white, as it is made from PURE COCONUT OIL that effectively CLEANS and WHITENS clothes without the harmful and harsh ingredients. It also retains the credibility of coloured clothes without compromising the strength of the fabrics even after several washes. Plus its ensure that our skin remains moisturized and not irritated.
Perla has 3 variants; Blue, White and Papaya
Recently, Perla staged a fashion event featuring 30 real life Perla users who slayed the Perla all-white looks, "Basics Redefined: The Perla Fashion Show". Perla's brand ambassador, TV host and notable actress, Ms. Toni Gonzaga graced the event and celebrate fashion and timeless style with these women.
Thanks to Perla, our trusted name when it comes to taking care of our basic whites.
Today, many fashionable Filipinas are turning to basics to create standout looks. Monochromatic outfits are all the rage in some of the top fashion capitals of the world -- from New York to Milan, Tokyo to Paris -- all white looks dominate runways and walkways. This trend has now caught on here in our country, with fashionable Filipinas rocking the look everywhere.
Thanks to Perla, as a mother I always made sure that my baby clothes are perfect for his sensitive skin and other delicate clothes of my family are protected (plus its affordable).
