Two teams—one led by Cong and the other by Ivana Alawi—will slug it out in the Mountain Dew Battle of Bangis, a series of challenges that will test their physical, mental and emotional strength, plus teamwork. This is the challenge to watch out for.

In the true sense of supporting adventure and activities best experienced among friends,
Mountain Dew brings to the public Battle of Bangis which will see Cong, Ivana, and their
respective teammates taking part in different bootcamp challenges—Pisikalan, Walang Iyakan,
Mind Over Matter, and Tropahan--over three weeks from October 10 to 27 leading up to the
finale dubbed Mountain Dew Battle of Bangis D’ Ultimate Showdown on November 7.

Mountain Dew Battle of Bangis started after Cong and Junnie Boy posted a video on Facebook thanking everyone for supporting their Mountain Dew TVC with James Reid. Junnie Boy said he’d love to collab with Ivana after Cong asked him who he’d like to work with next. In a video, Ivana said “bangis tayo eh”, accepted the challenge, and called on Mountain Dew to help make it happen. Immediately after, Ivana and Cong were announcing the Mountain Dew Battle of Bangis challenge!

Team Cong is composed of singer, YouTuber and influencer Mika Salamanca, vlogger Junnie
Boy and actress and model Sachzna. Team Ivana, on the other hand, is made up of streamer
and content creator Khenji Saito, TikTok superstar Yukii Takahashi and influencer and “Asian
cutie” Albert Nicolas.

Dewds at home have the chance to win Mountain Dew Battle of Bangis and be part of their
favorite tropa. All they have to do is upload a video doing their take of the bootcamp challenge
of the week and use #DewBattleOfBangis to make it count as their official “audition” video.
Dewds can send in as many videos as they want, regardless of which team they want to join!
Each tropa is looking for six Dewds to be part of their team so you’ll have many chances of
making it.

The three weeks of challenges will culminate in the Mountain Dew Battle of Bangis D’ Ultimate
Showdown on November 7. The showdown, to be hosted by Sam YG featuring special guest
James Reid, will be streamed live on Mountain Dew’s Facebook page. Chosen participants
from the past online bootcamp challenges will be part of Tropang Cong and Tropang Ivana. The ultimate battleground—Call of Duty Mobile—will be the final test of the participants’ strength and cunning. During this showdown, they will be coached by playing Team Captains Cong and Ivana.

Mountain Dew will be partnering with Streets to School (Ivana’s chosen charity) and Child Hope (Cong’s choice) to power up young Dewds with new tablets for their schooling needs. One hundred tablets will be given to the winning team’s chosen charity while 50 tablets will be given to the losing team’s charity.

5 Hidden Gems In The South To Visit And Explore


Admittedly, when I think of tourist destinations, the CALABARZON region isn't the first place to come to mind. However as I've continued to research relaxing getaways that aren't too far, locations within the said area never fails to pop up, making me feel that this region is totally underrated. More than just the picturesque Tagaytay, the fun filled beaches of Batangas, popular religious spots in Quezon province, as well as artistic havens in the Rizal province, the South is filled with tourist destinations that are often overlooked and are ripe for exploring once the pandemic settles down. Here are five tourist attractions in the CALABARZON region that have caught my attention and I am considering visiting during my next holiday break!

 Matang Tubig Cold Springs, Silang, Cavite 

During these scorching summer days, can you imagine something more relaxing than lounging in a Cold Spring pool with an icy drink in your hand? The Matang Tubig Cold Springs provides you that stress relief you so seek, without having to travel too far out of the metro. Situated within the areas of Canlubang and Calamba, Laguna, the resort utilizes the pristine water source hailing from Silang, Cavite to provide their guests a refreshing escape from reality. 

Puto Latik Festival, Biñan, Laguna 

Our very own roster of "Kakanin" dishes is one of the highlights of the Filipino cuisine, and the Puto Latik Festival of Biñan, Laguna is one of the few festivals that pay homage to it. The first Festival was held in 2011, and ever since, it has been a yearly tradition starting every First week of February.  The Festival pays tribute to the Puto Biñan, which is the crown jewel of the city's native delicacies.
The Puto Latik festival is also the day the denizens of Biñan commemorate the founding of Maglalatik, a traditional folk dance which traces its origins to Biñan. 
You will be dazzled by the energetic dance numbers and various cultural activities that are performed, but what undoubtedly draws people from all walks of life to the festivities, is the opportunity to try a wide range of delicacies from some of the best purveyors that Biñan has to offer. Even residents of exclusive villages such as Verdana Homes in Barangay Mamplasan are lucky enough to witness the beloved city’s festivities. 

Fortune Island, Nasugbu, Batangas 

Can you imagine feeling like you're in middle of the stunning ruins of the Parthenon in one moment, and suddenly you're at a sandy tropical beach, the next? That's what you'll find when you visit Fortune Island, in Nasugbu. A result of the construction of what was expected to be a high end tourist attraction ceasing operations, the structures left in its wake gives tourists a glimpse of the glorious ruins of Ancient Greece. Numerous beach resorts are around the island, which can help you complete your itinerary of fun activities such as swimming, snorkelling and cliff diving. 

Masungi Georeserve, Rizal Province

For those that love the exhilaration of exploring the great outdoors, you'll be happy to know that you don't need to go too far to get your adrenalin rush. The Rizal Province is the home to the Masungi Geo-reserve, which is known for its stunning limestock Rock formations. Take a tour through the geo-park, which can lead you to the scenic mountainscapes or the lush forest of the area. 

Popular with social media influencers is the Masungi Geo-Reserve's iconic "Sapot" that thrill seekers can't get enough of. Suspended high above the rocks, this web like viewing platform gives its viewers a breathtaking view of Laguna De Bay.  spectacular that will guarantee your need to revisit the geoserve.

Balesin Island, Quezon Province 

A trip to Balesin Island is like a trip to exotic tropical destinations such as Bali,  Miami, Phuket and Santorini all in one place. Located at the Northern part of Polillio Island in Quezon Province, Balesin Island, is a luxurious and exclusive Beach Resort and Country Club. Inspired by the aforementioned beach havens, Balesin offers a unique holiday experience that your family and friends will enjoy. 

CALABARZON is more than just an escape for those tired of the concrete jungle of the city. These five spots are places you might want to explore when travel restrictions are finally lifted. Plan your next vacation in these five beautiful destinations.
