A DEBUT IS one of the most memorable periods in a woman’s life aside from getting married and giving birth. Kaya naman itinuturing ito na isang co-ming-of-age celebration. A woman only gets to be 18 once, so having a debut creates many wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
May mga debutantes who want to have a simple celebration, pero may iba naman na sobrang engrande ang kanilang selebrasyon. Ika nga, kanya-kanyang trip lang ‘yan. Who could forget the debut parties of our young stars which left indelible marks in showbiz’ history na parang mga balita na hindi na maaaring mabura at nagiging bahagi ng kasaysayan ng ating bansa?
KC Concepcion’s debut at The Tent had a fantasy-inspired setting filled with fairies and mermaids complete with a makeshift mini- bridge. Kim Chiu’s debut at The Glass Garden was decorated with flowers and was shown on ABS-CBN as a television special titled My Girl Turns 18. Ang isa pang dating border ni Kuya na si Nicole Uysiuseng ay nagdiwang naman ng kanyang 18th birthday with a Hawaiian theme. Pinoy Dream Academy’s 1st Grand Star Dreamer Yeng Constantino celebrated her party sa loob ng Pinoy Dream Academy.
Ang bilis talaga ng pag-ikot ng mundo because another young actress had set out into the world of womanhood. Empress Schuck recently celebrated her 18th birthday at the Grand Terrace in Quezon City. The debutante wore a Pepsi Herrera gown.
Rocker chick ang theme ng party and her guests wore black, pink and white. Walang cotillion de honor, pero mayroon pa ring 18 Roses and 18 Treasures.
Ano nga ba ang sinisimbolo ng 18 Roses at 18 Treasures?
The 18 roses signify the debutante’s coming of age while the 18 Treasures are 18 people who give meaningful gifts to the debutante.
Sina Robi Domingo, Kitkat, at Melissa Ricks ang tumayong mga hosts nang gabing ‘yon. Her showbiz friends Enchong Dee, Felix Roco, Matt Evans, Ejay Falcon, Arron Villaflor, Isabelle Abiera, Beauty Gonzales and Erich Gonzales were part of the 18 Roses and 18 Treasures ceremonies. Richard Poon, 3 AM, The VoizBoys and Parokya ni Edgar were the special guests.
Empress has blossomed into a lovely lady. Nagsimula siya sa showbiz nung siya ay bata pa. She received the Best Child Actress award in 2003 for her role as ‘Sandy del Rosario’ in the movie 9 Mornings. She then starred in a string of hit series gaya ng Super Inggo, Star Magic Presents: Abt Ur Luv, at Your Song Presents: Underage. Pero ang biggest break ni Empress ay nangyari ten years after she entered showbiz with her afternoon drama series Rosalka. Ngayon siya ay tinaguriang Empress of Drama sa showbiz.
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
