Shirley Maclaine, will play Coco Chanel in an upcoming Lifetime TV miniseries, which chronicles the icon's later years in Paris, after she exiled herself in Germany and Switzerland during World War II. Fashionista reports that the project is supported by both Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, with costume designer Stefano de Nardis even getting archival research from the company. Meanwhile rumors swirl that Demi Moore is in talks for an American Chanel movie and a feature-length movie has currently begun production in Paris, with Audrey Tatou as the lead.
I'm looking forward to watching this!

Cyma Caesar Salad
Marnelli working on Anissa's hair. Say goodbye to your hair, Emo girl!
I had to keep the little one distracted because she wanted to sit on Ate's lap
Yikes! Ang short na!
aaaayyy! May buntot pala!
She's so happy with her new haircut!(And yes...she has stopped bugging me so my ears can finally rest)
Here she is being fitted with her lapel mic by Kathleen of momWorks!
After half an hour, Karen of Lifestyle Network brought her to us while we were having a super quickie lunch downstairs in Tokyo Tokyo. A little while later, I got a text from Karen that the interview segment was about to be shot. So off we went two floors up to Kids Zone. This time I got to take a video of the kids' interview with show host, Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan. Although obviously nervous and very self-conscious, I was so proud of the way Anissa answered Maricel's questions. She knew what the questions were beforehand but didn't really prepare her answers. I knew she could do it! (I'm posting this video separately)
The interview took no more than half an hour so we had an entire afternoon to spend at the mall! Bought her school shoes from Landmark, took her to the salon for her much-awaited haircut (yes she got the style she's been dying to copy!), bought a few more things then finally had dinner in CYMA before heading home. This deserves a separate blog entry so watch out for it.
I'm tired to say the least! Now I know that Anissa is definitely not showbiz material because she kept telling me over and over again, "Mom, remind me never to do this again!" I know she was serious when she said this.

September 14 - Cheerdance Competition
Can you tell I'm looking forward to Season 71 of the UAAP??? Thank God the smaller games are going to be in Philsports. I prefer it over Ninoy Aquino all the way in Manila (the former Rizal Memorial) because it's nearer.
MARK THOSE CALENDARS!!! JULY 13 will be a big big big day!!!
ANIMO LA SALLE!!!
One of my most favorite things in the whole world is...yes, coffee! My day is never right if I don't have my morning fix. No meal is ever complete without it because although it might sound strange to some, coffee helps me feel less bloated after pigging out. But that's not even the weirdest part...I need to have one last cup right before going to bed. How weird is that?! Here's a list of some of the best coffees I've had, most of which I keep going back to:
Figaro's House Blend - I'm glad it's now sold in packs for addicts like me to bring home
Certain parts of this book shocked me. She (Princess Di) was not the person I thought she was. But whatever the author disclosed didn't change the fact that the woman is deserving of all the attention and adulation she received from everyone all over the world.
Don't let me rain on your anticipation...go and get a copy for yourself. This book is going to be worth your time!
