Monday, March 08, 2004CAT'S MEOW
I couldn't resist buying this book last night. If you love fashion and if you gawk at socialite wanna-be's, this is THE book to read.
The main character, Cat, is soooo irritatingly amusing! She's this 29-year-old former childstar who also did some modeling stints in Japan during her teens. She lives on her dad's trust fund and lives for ultra fashionista outfits, parties, vodka tonics and the like. She's making her way up the social ladder when she finds out that her funds are running dry. And to top it all off, she had just sent her helper/personal assistant to China in her behalf to adopt a baby girl as one of her tactics to make this gorgeous, wealthy man to fall inlove with her. What's a girl who's never had to work a day in her life to do?!?
I can't put it down! It's sooo funny! I was in the jeepney this morning and it was a bit traffic so i started reading. Completely forgetting where i was, i let out a laugh. I looked up and there they were...about 5 questioning faces staring at me.
And it's amazing that the author is a Filipina based in New York. She's making a fan out of me.
Here's the part that made me laugh in the jeepney:
"As it turned out, giving Bannerjee the Amex was doubly worthless--it couldn't buy an illegal baby, nor did it solve her "visa" problem. She finally explained that she didn't need the kind of Visa that bought Jimmy Choo shoes but the kind they gave out at U.S. embassies. I wasn't aware there was another kind. So not only did I have to come up with enough cash to buy the baby, but I would also need to conjure up this so-called visa to get her out of China as well."
I'm laughing again!
Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her 3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi, constantly needs caffeine,
