YASMIEN Kurdi, after playing the role of a harassed young mother in "Hiram na Anak", now plays a rollicking role as a virtual mom in the special episode of "Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko" this Sunday. "Hindi ako totoong tao sa story but just a creation on the Internet and I had fun being a digital mom who tries to win the love and loyalty of real life children by offering them a lot of goodies para mailayo ko ang loob nila sa kanilang real mothers."
The episode is entitled “Download Mommy” is the touching story of a loving mother, Kristel (Manilyn Reynes) and her struggle against the downloadable virtual mom from an APP called “Download Mommy”, as played by Yasmien Kurdi. Manilyn's kids are Kring (Mikee Quintos) and Kahel (Yuan “Paopao” Francisco), who are now seemingly more attached to the internet mother than to her.
In the final episode Mikee as Kring will be so sad after her mother Kristel has been turned into a mere cardboard standee. She asks the help of the cellphone stall owner where she got Download Mommy and she is told that the only way to get back her own mother is for Kring to stop using the Download Mommy APP and turn her back to all the material things that Yasmien has previously given her.
"This episode imparts a lot of good values about family and relationships," adds Yasmien. "Kasi pinapakita rito na luxurious materials are not enough to replace the love of a real caring mother. I think itong ganitong important and valid messages about family life ang isang dahilan kung bakit watching 'Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko' has become a weekly habit for many viewers kasi maraming natutuhang aral ang mga batang viewers. As for my own daughter Ayesha, I'm so proud that my husband Rey and I are able to raise her well at hindi siya lumaking materialistic."
In the case of Mikee as Kring, will she be able to resist temptation and reject the life of wealth and comfort offered to her by Download Mommy?
Will she be brave enough to return all the material things that were given to her by Yasmien just so she can get back her real life mother?
Find out if the sincere and pure love of a mother will triumph over material and win her kids back in "Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko" this Sunday night after "Amazing Earth" on GMA Sunday Grande.
