Ate’s DEBUT.. Finally!

Yesss! After months of preparations & tiring dance rehearsals.. making a couple of music videos & song recordings, I can proudly say that Ate’s debut was a FLYING SUCCESS! m/ Ganito pala ang showbiz, hay! ;P

You can watch her UBER CUTE music videos HERE & HERE.. I’d love to hear your feedback (proud momma!) haha..

She wanted a very simple dress with a removable skirt so she can party the night away in comfort.
She’s into turquoise now. (She changes her favorite color like she changes outfits! :P)
Even as a child, she never liked elaborate, over-the-top frilly dresses. Boo! :(
Thanks to ANN CHAVES of PLUMA.

Tears flowed down my cheeks as she came in & strutted to the center of the stage of Salon de Ning last night. My baby -now a LEGAL lady! :'(( Ouch!

As early as 1 in the afternoon when we got to the hotel, her dad & I took turns & worked our a$$e$ off making sure everything was picture perfect for her. When it was finally time for the party to start, basa na uli kili-kili ko haha!

A separate vehicle to hold all our shizzz & props! :P

I didn’t get an organizer coz 1) I’m a cheapskate! Ayaw ko magbayad -kaya ko yan is my motto! 2) More importantly, I wanted us to bond & make memories together. From choosing the place, to making payments, down to the littlest details. And because we did everything ourselves, ate & I have a treasure trove full of wonderful memories together! <3

Cuptails! (cupcake cocktails – liquor infused)
A gift, among other things, from one of her treasures. <3
Mega HIT among the teens! Yummy daw sobra! m/
So were the cocktail drinks. UBOS! ;P 
Since SDN only served pica-picas, I ordered a HUGE lechon & roast beef carving so ate’s guests don’t go hungry. 
Mixing drinks, let’s PAAAARTEY! ;))
With Nico, who made the 18 dances really ROCK!
Thank you so much, Nico!! <3
I’m so happy her only cousins came! <3
Even though their dad was noticeably absent.
Time heals all wounds.. or maybe not… 
With mother & my superfriends who are all Treasure Presenters! <3
Ate’s superfriends! <3
Happy & proud parentals… ;))
My BFF!!! <3 <3 <3
My very pretty baby LADY! <3
Getting ready to storm in! m/
and there she goes! <3
strutting to the tune of ELECTRIC FEEL.
Boom boom boom!
Her FIRST dance..
Her LAST dance.. for the program.
Coz obviously she’s gonna shake her booty right after! ;P
Candle ceremony with the lovely ladies.
If it isn’t obvious enough, her theme is 1920’s! ;) 
Singing “COUNT ON ME” to ate.
These are her REAL friends! <3 
The BEST part haha..
18 treasures. So MANY nice gifts!!! m/
Best in costume – female.
She really does look adorable in her 1920’s outfit.
Rock it girl! :)
We bought a “His & Hers” Banana Republic perfume from rustan’s as prizes.
Dapat syempre nice, may effort eh! :P

Our song & dance number.
“Ain’t no mountain high enough.”
My baby girl says her thanks.

Here’s her speech.. the last part was solely for me. Awwww!!!! <3 Kakaiyak ba!!! Thank you ate for loving me & valuing me so!!! <3 <3 <3
And last but definitely not the least, to my best friend, the person who I most definitely cannot live without, my soul sister. Thank you so much mommy for being the kind of mom others can only dream of having. I’m so glad I can come to you for everything. I have never experienced a love greater than yours. You have given me everything humanly possible and you continue to give me anything my silly little heart desires. I remember when we were little kids, you’d sneak us out while dad was at basketball. You’d take us to Rustans to buy toys, and we’d get so excited to open them that you’d stop on the side of the road and cut up all the box & plastic so dad won’t find out that we shopped for toys again. Then, we’d dispose them in someone’s random trash then go home and pretend nothing happened. You are our partner in crime. You spoil me not only with material things but with so much love and warmth that I feel I’ve had the perfect childhood. You loved me even when I was ugly inside and out. You always put me first. You have always protected me, even from alien attacks that aired on television. Though it was impossible to shield me from all the hurt, you shared the load and you made it easier for me to endure it all. And now, we’re finally free. I love you so much mom and I hope that one day I can make you feel as special as you make me feel everyday.

My wonderful family! <3
Thank you Lord! Fats ko nalang po lusawin Nyo, perfect life na haha!
Enough tears.. more of the party central haha..

O ayan.. full party mode na pati mga gurangis sumali na! Oh-em-gee! ;))
Which is why I abducted them all & brought them to ESCOLTA for a HEAVY buffet dinner
para hindi na manggulo haha!
Pero matitigas talaga ang mga ulo haha..
! @_@

The 18 Treasure Presenters.
Ate hand-picked them, wala akong kagagawan at kinalaman diyan hehe..
We didn’t invite our friends, only ate’s friends since it was HER party.
So her Treasure Presenters were the only oldies there. :P
These are people she feels closest to & and connected with the most through the years. <3

Happy happy birthday ate! <3
I’m so very happy that your night was a success. You deserve it sweetheart.
I love you so much. You mean the world to me!! :-*
Oh, to be young, wild & free! <3
