debut and a li'l bit nostalgia

so i went out on a sunday night -- probably one of the better perks of being a fresh grad and having no job (as of yet!).
my boyfriend's cousin celebrated her debut in a local lounge/bar. the night was filled with good desserts, endless karaoke-ing, unlimited billiard games and one tequila shot (and yes, only one! hahaha!).
happy birthday to you!!!

unlimited billiards!

jose cuervo love :)

the debutante wanted us to wear something black and white so it was the perfect occasion for me to wear my new tunic/dress from forever21. it's from their twist collection and i ordered it last christmas when it was on sale for only $9.35 (that's with tax & free shipping).
outfit: forever21 dress, ardene tights, celine shoes

no other bright lighting than the washroom!

can i just say..
it's weird to be attending these debuts. it just reminds me of how old i am. i had mine a number of years back in the philippines. oh let me show you some nostalgic 'embarass myself' pictures!!!
my mom & i prepping for the event

this is my shrine! hahaha!
that cake was like a wedding cake!

it's quite evident what my color theme was, yes?

where do i even begin with this photo?
the pinkness, the shiny gown, the wedding-esque cake, my awkward body posture, the ancient digicam used.
hahahaha.. too nostalgic!
let's have a good laugh at this, shall we?

i used to remember that period when my friends were having their debuts one after another. every week there was a party to attend to. it was the perfect excuse to buy new clothes. it even got to a point that i had to attend 3 debuts in one night and in 3 locations that were so far apart. aaahhh!! the simple stressors of teenage years. i miss those days..

i was just telling my bf awhile ago about how his cousin's friends were like the 'new generation'. after a few karaoke songs and billiard games, i was done for the night. but the teens were pumped up the whole time! hahaha! i feel so old...

  2. wow you look so pretty!!!!! i love the white tunic! just out of my ignorance, what is a debut?! is it like a coming of age party thing?
