100% Jousei


I most remember Chelli-chan as the nervous kid who had the misfortune of being the receiving end of my katarayan during a formal interview.

FLORI: Are you nervous?

CHELLI: Yes, Ma’am.

FLORI: Well you should be!

So Cherie Gil-Sharon Cuneta, isn’t it? Anyway, who would have known years later that that same trembling kid would become Chelli Mariano, J-event host extraordinaire!

Don’t let that cute petite package fool you. This girl can warm up the crowd with her wit and warmth.

Lumalabas pagka-bading ko kapag nasa stage ako,” she told me with a straight face. Yeah, right as if that twinkle in her eyes could lie. Trust me, this girl is 100% jousei.


Chelli with Jen and Elle, friends of Juujiro J-Culture. They’re into K Culture but who cares?


Co-host Denise and Chelli giving away prizes to the crowd.


Hmp! This guy beat me into getting that prize! He won twice that night!


Yeah, Chelli! Give em THE LOOK!


… which did not exactly deter a guy to steal a kiss. From Chelli ba or from Denise? I forgot, is this that same guy? I was too shocked to remember. The gall! Hehehe!
