Trisha Luise Canete, (born October, 2004) commonly known as Cha-Cha Cañete or Bulilit, is a Filipina child actress. She was discovered by a talent manager Erik Matti for the Camella homes TV commercial after the director noticed her inside a coffee shop in abs-cbn compound [1] at the age of 4, and started out as a commercial model for the real estate company with a song "Bulilit Sanay Sa Masikip".[2]

'Her humor and innate charm was first noticed in a real estate TV commercial that caught everyone's attention. Now, “Goin’ Bulilit” star Cha-Cha Cañete is ready to showcase the bubblier side of her—as a Bulilit rockstar. ...in “Goin’ Bulilit,” Cha-Cha’s music video entitled “Bakit O Bakit” will be seen for the first time on national television. The said song is her carrier single for her ... album “Bulilit Rockstar.” In the music video, Cha-Cha proves that even kids like her can also delve into rock music and be great at it! The video’s cool theme also reflects the colorful lives of happy grade schoolers like her. Popular rock band Tanya Markova also jazz up the video’s storyline. It was directed by Yan Yuzon while the song was written by Marlon Lucas and composed by Mandi Ferrer. The lyrics of “Bakit O Bakit,” talk about the natural curiosity of children on a lot of things and those who frequently ask the question “why” are those who tend to grow up more intelligent. Besides being a most sought after child actress and recording artist, Cha-Cha is also a consistent first honor student. She appears regularly on the country’s top-rating and longest-running kiddie gag show “Goin’ Bulilit,” and Anak TV award-winning show “Biyaheng Bulilit” on Studio 23 (now ABS-CBN Sports & Action).[3]

She is a regular student and dreams to become a doctor someday. Summarized below are her accomplishments to date.
