Nina's A Decade and Eight (Debut Special)

We went out of town for a couple of days that is why I wasn't able to update my blog. I'm sorry guys if I kept you waiting.

Because I owe you a lot of blog posts, let me give you a special blog for today :"> Sounds fun huh?

It is every girl's dream to be a princess. Almost everyone experienced watching fairy tales, I did! I had collections of Disney movies when I was a kid, my Mom bought it for me. I remember watching Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty many times, I almost memorized the lines. Disney movies made me believe in magic, in one true love, in prince charming, in happy ending. That's how great the impact was to me. That's why when I reached my legality as woman, I wanted it to be extra special and magical. I'm talking about my debut. So I'm gonna post in here some of my debut pictures :)

So basically the theme of my debut is Summer Masquerade and my motif is pink and purple.

The photos were used for my tarpaulin and invitations.

Invitations by Tita Beth

Vain friends on the photo booth :D

Before the party starts, we had to take advantage of the beautiful sky for our background. The photographer did pretty well in these photos. 

Picture with my beautiful Mom :)

Sweetest brothers in the world. I'm lucky to have them in my life.

Message from the coolest sister-in-law, Ate Ilyn.

Clingy soon to be sister-in-law, Ate Irene. Love her :)

Message from Tatang. No he's not mad. It's just his nature. You should have listened to him, he had the best message with all the "p*tangina" lines because it's his expression.

Touching birthday message from my Mom and it took her almost 15 minutes to finish it and left us crying the entire time she's talking.

A moment to thank everyone who made my debut extra special and extra memorable. I didn't ask for one like this but thanks for giving me one. I'm very blessed to experience such wonderful event of my life and it wouldn't be possible without my Mom who did almost everything, she had more stressful days and nights than me which even caused her alopecia. To my Kuya Veejay and Ate Ilyn for providing the cake and photobooth. Thanks to Kuya Pat for the three beautiful gowns, I felt like a real princess. Thanks ate Vicky for the balloons and other decorations. Ate Lanie for the tarpaulins and layout for my invitation. Thanks tita Beth for my invitation. Thanks ate Dei for my pre-debut shoot. Thanks kuya Ogie for the yummy lechon. Sorry no pics of the food. Thanks ate Soc for being the host of the night. Thanks Harley for being my dance partner. Thanks Lhabzj Jon for my hair and make-up. Thanks to my relatives, my friends, childhood friends, elementary, high school, college friends, to my YFC family who had the biggest crowd. Thanks to all my friends from Binangonan, Baguio, Isabela and other places for being with me on my special day. Thanks to the people who sent their video greetings all the way from US, Canada, New Zealand and more. Thank you everyone, I know these words wouldn't be enough but I have to because I feel very happy and grateful. Above all, I thank God for another blessed year with all these people in my life.
