Anne Curtis was recently in Italy where she enjoyed the food, the wines and the chocolates, aside from the scenery.
“Being there was really living the good life. Italy is really a place to enjoy life and wonderful experiences,” said Anne during the recent Swiss Miss “La Dolce Vita” event at the Venice Grand Canal Mall in McKinley Hill.

Anne is someone who knows how to enjoy life. She works hard but also knows how to reward herself, like with a cup of good hot chocolate.
“I make sure that I’m able to take a quick breather despite my full schedule. At the end of long taping hours or filming for a new movie, a cup of Swiss Miss Chocolate Hazelnut helps me relax and enjoy those moments,” said Anne.

She likes Swiss Miss Chocolate Hazelnut hot or cold. Swiss Miss Chocolate Hazelnut is the newest flavor of Swiss Miss, the world famous chocolate powder drink. It’s made of premium, imported cocoa and real milk. Swiss Miss Chocolate Hazelnut fuses the aroma and flavor of roasted, buttery hazelnuts with silky, creamy and frothy chocolate.

“La Dolce Vita” means “the sweet life” and the event celebrated that with gondola rides, Italian cuisine, music courtesy of pop opera singer Jonathan Wagner, and sketches of guests by artists on site.

“There’s no one quite like Anne. She is glamorous and sophisticated but she knows how to enjoy life,” said Cathy Castro, Swiss Miss Asia marketing manager. The launch is a milestone for Filipinos as the Philippines is the first market in Asia to introduce this new Swiss Miss flavor.
“The luxurious taste of the new Swiss Miss variant reminds us that it doesn’t require much to enjoy life. Life is sweet, and we can enjoy its little indulgences by rewarding ourselves for our little wins,” she added.
