jodi meets hello kitty

YES! (Philippines) - - Stargazing -

Jodi Sta. Maria was all fired up at the VIP view­ing of the Star Cin­ema rom­com Dear Other Self.

The 35-year-old ac­tress and mother of one is the lead star in the movie about a 30-year-old sin­gle and work­ing woman whose life choices bring her to dif­fer­ent des­ti­na­tions, as well as to dif­fer­ent ro­man­tic in­ter­ests (played by Joseph Marco and Xian Lim).

The movie screen­ing was held last May 27 at the Up­town Mall Cin­ema, in the Boni­fa­cio Global City com­plex, Taguig City. An af­ter-party fol­lowed at Hello Kitty Café, which is lo­cated in the same mall.

Jodi hap­pens to be a big Hello Kitty fan, so she must have thanked her lucky stars that the mall had a Hello Kitty Café. Right af­ter the VIP view­ing, she took to Face­book to share her ex­cite­ment through a video post.

“VIP view­ing party for Dear Other Self,” she chirpily re­ported. “This was or­ga­nized by my best friend, Gar­lic Gar­cia. And to­day, we are here at the Hello Kitty Café.

“They just opened for us. Isn’t that sweet? Su­per happy be­cause a lot of friends from show busi­ness and friends from church at­tended the view­ing party. Thank you very much, Hello Kitty Café! Watch out for their open­ing… Nan­dito si Hello Kitty!”

The café for­mally opened last July 21.

Jodi Sta. Maria couldn’t get enough of Hello Kitty, so she had pho­tos of her­self taken with the life-size ver­sion of the fa­mous car­toon char­ac­ter: with her costar Joseph Marco (left), and at Hello Kitty Café for the af­ter-party.

With the Dear Other Self star are her fel­low ac­tresses and good friends Ruffa Gu­tier­rez and Donita Rose (photo below, sec­ond from right and right­most), and Ruffa’s daugh­ter Venice Bek­tas (left­most).

Jodi also posed for a pos­ter­ity shot with more spe­cial peo­ple in her life: (bot­tom photo, L-R) Carla Martinez, Precy Florentino, Gar­lic Gar­cia, and Kuh Ledesma.

Carla played Jodi’s mother in Dear Other Self. Precy is the pres­i­dent of the Mu­sic Mu­seum Group Inc., which runs, among other en­ter­prises, the Mu­sic Mu­seum con­cert and the­ater venue. Gar­lic is the head­writer of a num­ber of ABS-CBN pro­grams, such as The Voice of the Philip­pines. Kuh—the record­ing and con­cert artist be­hind such Orig­i­nal Pilipino Mu­sic (OPM) clas­sics as “Dito Ba?” and “Till I Met You”—is also an ac­tress and a co-founder of Mu­sic Mu­seum.

There is an over­load of cute­ness at Hello Kitty Café, from the menu card to the food items.
