Richard Yap Leads The Big Cast Of 'Mano Po 7: Chinoy' Who Will Join The Grand Parade For Their Movie In Binondo & Chinatown This Sunday, 4 pm

RICHARD YAP is one of the most likeable stars she has ever worked with, according to Regal’s Mother Lily Monteverde. “He’s very professional during the shoot and now, he’s very cooperative sa promo ng ‘Mano Po 7: Chinoy’, the country’s most successful family drama franchise, unlike other stars na after doing a movie with us, ang hirap nang hilahin para mag-promote,” she says. “Si Richard, he attends all the presscons, TV guestings, mall tours, free shows, parade and even school tours we laid out for the cast to promote our movie. Tuwang-tuwa sa kanya ang school officials, teachers and students ng iba’t ibang Chinese schools we scheduled for him to visit. This included Chiang Kai Shek College, Hope Christian High School, St. Stephen School and Uno High School.

The movie is about Chinese families in the Philippines kaya we promoted it sa Chinese schools kasi this is about them. Lahat sila, kinikilig kay Richard and he’s very accommodating to all of them at matiyagang nakipag-picture taking sa kanila.”

This Sunday, they will have a big promo and grand parade in Binondo and Chinatown with a dragon and lion dance starting at the Lucky China Town Mall at 4 PM. The main stars will be there: Richard Yap, Jean Garcia, Enchong Dee, Jessy Mendiola, Janella Salvador, Marlo Mortel, plus the supporting cast led by Eric Quizon, Jake Cuenca, Janna Agoncillo and Kean Cipriano. They will hand out “Mano Po 7” souvenir items to all those who’ll watch the parade.

“All Chinoys will enjoy the parade and in watching ‘Mano Po 7’ because it is about their life here in the Philippines,” adds Mother Lily. “Noong una, kaming Chinese, ang lakas ng discrimination against us. But now, we’ve been assimilated in the community. May mga kuha ito on location in Taiwan and aim din namin sa movie for it to help build friendlier ties with the Filipino and Chinese communities.”
