Kapamilya child wonder Xyriel Manabat added another feather to her cap as she earned the ‘Most Popular Female Child Performer’ award in the recently held 43rd Box-Office Entertainment Awards of the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation. The recognition was for her remarkable performance in the hit drama series “100 Days to Heaven.”
Apart from her new award, Xyriel keeps on inspiring her fellow kids through her month-long “Wansapanatayam” special.
In the ‘Sandy and the Magic Sandok’ episode this Saturday (April 21), Xyriel gives life to the role of a loving daughter named Sandy who always helps her mother in their eatery. However, after being blessed with a magical spoon that has the power to prepare incredibly delicious dishes, Sandy suddenly becomes vengeful to their competitors and uses her newfound ‘power’ against them. Will the magical spoon let Sandy abuse her?
Together with Xyriel in the episode are Precious Lara Quigaman, Lito Pimentel, Rubi Rubi, Brenna Peñaflor, Joebert Austria, Hermie Concepcion, and the voice of Mutya Orquia as the ‘Magical Sandok.’ ‘Sandy and the Magic Sandok’ was written by Joel Mercado and directed by Tots Sanchez-Mariscal.
“Wansapanataym” is a part of ABS-CBN’s “Bida Best Kid” campaign launched recently that aims to empower children by encouraging them to become who they want to be and the best that they can be. It doesn’t only entertain and educate its young viewers with its values-oriented, child-friendly programs, but supports their dreams and aspirations as well.
