YOSHINOYA GLORIETTA WELCOMES MS. EARTH 2013 DELEGATES

Last Monday (November 18, 2013), we got the chance to join the staff of Yoshinoya Restaurant in Glorietta 1, Makati City in welcoming some of the Miss Earth 2013 delegates. 

Shown in the above picture (L-R) are Misses Guadeloupe, India and China. 

Guadeloupe is a group of Caribbean islands. It is sometimes known as the Butterfly Island because of the shape of two of its major islands. It is an integral part of France.

You will notice that Miss Guadeloupe did not use chopsticks. She preferred to use fork for her salad as compared to her seatmates Misses India and China who both are Asians.
They were divided into three groups. They played a game of picking up marshmallows with chopsticks.
Group two won the game. Each member of the group got a Yoshinoya mug.
The Yoshinoya staff and some bloggers were very happy to meet and interview the delegates of Miss Earth 2013. They were so nice and beautiful.

WHAT’S A MOTHER TO DO IN “DON’T CRY MOMMY”

Korea’s most recent controversial drama thriller, “Don’t Cry Mommy” unleashes a mother’s fury who seeks revenge for her daughter’s tragic death. Starring Yoo Sun as the mother named Yoo-lim whose only reason to live is her daughter who peacefully faces a new life after divorce. Nam Bo-ra takes on the role of her daughter Eun-ah, a teenage girl whose tragic experience with young love triggers her suicide.
Enrolled in a new school after her parents’ divorce, Eun-ah’s first experience in teenage romance turns into a nightmare as she becomes the victim of gang-rape perpetrated by those she knew in school that triggers her to take her own life. 
Directed by Kim Yong-Han from a screenplay by Lee Sang-Hyeon, the movie is based on various true accounts and tackles unapologetically the hidden problems in the nation.  The movie also stars U-Kiss’ pop icon Dong-Ho as Jo-han who preyed on the innocence of Eun-ha along with his friends Pak Joon (Kwan Hyun-Sang) and Min-gu (Lee Sang-Min).   
After all efforts failed to jail the minor perpetrators of Eun-ha’s death, Yoo-lim takes matters into her own hands even if it means breaking the law.  The movie was scripted with Yoo Sun in mind due to her remarkably strong portrayals in her previous films. “There are so many emotional scenes in the movie and sometimes, I would be filming emotional scenes all day long, until dawn.  It was very tiring but I had to keep myself emotionally charged for those scenes,” relates Yoo Sun. 
Nam Bo-ra who’s known in Korea for being a ‘proper-mannered’ celebrity shares, “The scenes I had to film after the tragic incident were particularly hard for me, as they required a lot of emotional acting.  But I’ve never personally experienced that kind of emotions, so I had to work hard in portraying those scenes.”
“Don’t Cry Mommy” will open on November 13 in local cinemas from Axinite Digicinema, Inc.
