October 11, 2014 surely marked the best day of my life so far. I once had a dream of becoming a princess, a real princess, and for that one night I felt like I truly am with this magical celebration. 

To tell you honestly I was quite nervous because it was raining hard all throughout the day. I call and text my friends from time to time to check or ask them if they were already in the venue. I quite freaked out because I was thinking that maybe my guests won't be able to come due to bad weather. But then, when I arrived at the venue and had my grand entrance I was surprised to see that almost all my invited guests were able to come. Yey! It already made me so happy!
Just to share with you, the first time I went to this venue I already fell in love with the place. I think I was 7 or 8 back then. The ceiling, the lights, this garden reminds me so much of gods and goddesses, fairies and princesses. I told myself that I will not celebrate my 18th birthday if it wouldn't be held in this place! Haha! Sounds rude but this is how much I love it. Chez Amis didn't disappoint me though! They made my night truly a magical and unforgettable one. 
My very supportive cousins. I love how our outfits matched here! Told ya, pastel and candy colored outfits go well together! Haha :)

The program started with an opening prayer followed by my mom's welcoming remarks and finally, my grand entrance :)

It was followed by my 18 Roses. I chose the 18 closest guys to me which includes my friends and relatives. Someone's late though! :( Haha. Just kidding!

 18 Treasures... 

then the 18 Symbolic Gifts. It consists of my 18 closest High School and College friends. It was nice seeing them all in pastel and candy colored outfits. :) 

After dinner I changed into my cocktail dress and had my look changed. I had my second entrance and this time danced a production number with Batangas Fusion Dancers. I never thought that I would dance something like this in public! Hahaha :) 

My production number didn't end there! I was introduced by the emcee as a singer back then and I was asked to have a song number on the spot. Good thing I didn't got nervous. I started to sing my mom's favorite song, "Grow Old with You", went down the stage and found myself approaching her near the table where she was sitting. This was my favorite part and I became a little emotional during that moment.

My college friends also sang during that night. Nakarequest din naman! Haha :) They never failed me and I will always be their fan. 

18 Blogger Finds followed. It consists of my High School and College best friends as well as my girl cousins. 

The last but definitely not the least 18 list was the 18 Candles and Wishes which include my titas and lolas. 
Special thanks to my one and only Ate Ghen for having my cake sponsored. You don't know how much it meant to me. :) I love you.

And again, I want to acknowledge the presence of my friends and  family who came to this wonderful and magical event of mine. 

My family. All of this wouldn't be possible if it wasn't because of my mom. Thank you po!

My forever favorite trio! Haha. 

My High School girls. It was nice seeing all their pretty faces even though they're incomplete. :( 

My Dentistry family :)

My Dela Roca Family :)

and Bagon Family :)

And of course the program doesn't stop there! My debut ended with everyone's favorite part, the non-stop partyyyy partyyy!!!!

This event is definitely my favorite among all the days I had in my 18 years of existence. Thank you to everyone who came and contributed to make this event a truly memorable one. I love you! :)
