I grew up with a nanny and today I don't even remember them. I was quite excited to be at the presscon of the movie, Iloilo since it is a story of Singaporean family and their relationship with the nanny. I was glad to see the real Teresita Sajonia, who was a domestic helper, for the family of Anthony Chen, the director of the movie.

Madam Teresita Sanjonia was with her husband I think, they were very quiet sitting at the presidential table. It reminds me of the nanny of my son now, who takes care of him and treats him like her own.

Anthony Chen was with Angeli Bayani, the actress that portrayed Teresita. Anthony told us that it took months for him to train Angeli to forget his mannerisms and act the way he would like the character to act.

There was  a special screening of the movie that afternoon, but I have to go back to Katipunan to pick up my kids.

I'll buy the DVD set once it comes out at Amazon.com
