We bet there’s no girl in the Philippines right now who would not want to have a debut party that was as extravagant and lavish as Bianca Umali’s party last March 17. Held at the EDSA Shangri-La in Mandaluyong City, Bianca became a princess for a night as she celebrated her 18th birthday last March 2, 2018. Even though her birthday party was filled with this generation’s brightest stars, she outshone them all.
One of her debut highlights was her Liza Padilla light-up gown. She was literally the highlight of the night as she glowed in the dark during her grand entrance.
Later on, she changed into her main gown, a “Pantone blue Gazar embellished with Swarovski crystals, zircon and beadworks” designed by Fay Reyes.
The Kapuso actress’ on-screen partner, Miguel Tanfelix, made Bianca’s night even better with his presence and surprising gifts for her. Miguel did not fall short for making Bianca special that night through giving her gifts. It includes a bouquet of white roses, a blank canvas, a box brimming with her favorite snacks, her favorite Filipino dish, Sinigang, a picture of her favorite snap, a floral dress, and his most extravagant gift, trip to Bianca’s dream vacation spot, Japan. She would not need to worry because Michael would shoulder all the expenses! How fancy is that?
The last but definitely not the least highlight was when she turned emotional while giving her speech.
“I always say this to everyone na wala po ako ngayon sa kinaroroonan ko kung hindi po dahil sa inyong lahat. Maraming maraming salamat po dahil kung hindi po sa tulong ninyo, kung ano po yung meron ako ngayon, wala po ako. People ask me kung ano po yung wish ko for my 18th birthday. Wala po akong wishes at all because I’m actually contented with what I have already.”
She likewise extended her gratitude to her family members who supported her all the way.
“To my mom and my dad, I know that both of you are here. I’m celebrating tonight because of the both of you, para sa inyo lahat ng ginagawa ko. To both of my lolas, I love you po so much.And tama rin yung sinabi nila kanina na kung hindi dahil sa inyong dalawa, hindi ako ganito kung sino ako ngayon, hindi ako yung Bianca na nakikita niyo.”
