DEBUT DIARY: 1

legal, finally: part one

 

hi, i'm pauline. born on Nov. 28, 1996, and i'm finally legal! just as the title says. hoorah! a few years back, i never really intended to have my own debut (a tradition of celebrating a lady's 18th birthday in the philippines) due to practicality, hasslement, and maybe a fear for wanting to spend my parent's money for my own pleasure. things eventually got complicated and then this happened..my very own debut, or rather my mini celebration, as i'd prefer to call it. i have been waiting for this moment for a very long time. bear with me, i have a lot of photos to share. from the days before: the preparation, the set up, the photoshoots...to the day that was filled with nerves, getting ready, more set up, the weather, the friends, the family, the love, God's wonderful miracles, the party. 

here are some of my pre-debut photos..

 

warning : this post is image heavy


 

having to wake up at 3 in the morning, taking off at 4, meeting with the rest of the crew at 5 in a far away meet-up place, arriving at 6 on one of the peak spots in antipolo, sitting while singing inside my head because i'm not allowed to move while they get me done for more than an hour, doing all sorts of running, jumping, walking, and more other poses that they tell me with the grasses pricking our skins, shoes, and long dresses for this pre-debut shoot was definitely one of the most exhausting yet best experience of my life. well, for one reason, i felt like a real model and an artist...and being one is sure dead tiring!

 


moving on to the day..day...day!



*cue the advertisement song pls*



ohhh you know...just me and mah sistahh makin' use of the overnight accommodation resources before the people arrrrrrrrive! (scroll down for more info)


the place was more incredible than i ever could have asked for.



aaand back at'cha, event!


 

the board meant the giveaway mason jars. but where have the jars gone?

 


this photo was taken at around 3? i guess? when i was actually supposed to have started with my hair and make-up already. however, due to some turn of events (the hmua were late because of some transportation issue)...this photo is now here. tadah! hahaha! (look on the brighter side of life and make the most out of what you have)


ps: these helium balloons have flashing leds inside. (just wasn't too obvious) i really wanted flying lanterns at first, but tagaytay didn't allow us to do that. and then these babies came on facebook. i cannot ask and thank God for more.



i forgot to mention that my "mini celebration" took place in tagaytay, which is a one-hour travel time from manila, that's why there were some transportation issues for the hmua. while waiting for the hmua to arrive, i was looking at our view of taal volcano and was thinking about how amazing God truly is. the world that He created is just simply beautiful.



and here is one of the ideas that succeeded (i suppose) which i'm actually pretty proud of myself. my photobooth! yay! but why that verse, you ask? Prov. 3:5-6 is my life verse, that is why. 



and so it begins..(that's my hair artist right there!) ..i will be back in a few days to share with you part two of my "mini celebration."

 

 

this birthday celebration wouldn't have been possible without you guys! special thanks to:

 

pre-debut venue: sierra madre / pre-debut stylist: lifestyle by feliz / photographer: Teki Diaz / pre-debut make-up artist: Jean Tan / pre-debut hair artist: Kim Santos / venue: clearwater house / hmua: Shayne Salgado / gown: Joji Aguilar / event stylist and catering: passion cooks / event organizer: aunt Marites & co. / invite printing: print divas / Cake: Tourist cakeshop / mason jars: my splendid specialtites / bus transportation: fmr / overnight accommodation: bali village hotel resort & spa / helium led balloons: led balloons / transparent tents: tentworld / the best emcees: Sharie See, Kimiko Sy, & Nichole Chua / ivy piedad for recommending / our God / my family - dad, mom, sis, and bro (special mention to the best mom ever!) / to everyone who came / my la familia (as i'd like to call my friends) / i love you all.

 

couldn't ask God for more because He even gave me more than what's enough. each and every one of you are amazing! and God, YOU are more than enough for us (you & me), indeed! thank You.

    Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
