Debuts have been a special Pinoy tradition to welcome adulthood. And although 18th birthday celebrations have evolved over the years (from the traditional and grand celebrations to chill house parties with close friends), people still make it a point to honor the special sentiment this age holds.
We may no longer be able to organize big gatherings for debuts in the new normal, but this Pinay debutante was still able to have a cozy celebration with her family in the comforts of her home, thanks to a sweet surprise by her parents.
Vem Villanueva, an aspiring YouTuber, uploaded a vlog on her channel featuring her parents, who took over the cameras to explain how they were able to prepare a mini debut setup at home. In her vlog, viewers will see Vem's mother touring around the house to show off how they transformed their living room with streamers, balloons, and other decorations. They also had ball gowns prepared for her to wear to make her debut seem more legit.
Instead of the usual catering service, Vem's parents spent the morning cooking up a feast for her debut. And because her closest friends couldn't physically attend her special celebration, her parents reached out and asked them to send video messages for her instead. To top it off, Vem also got a birthday greeting from one of her favorite celebs, Miguel Tan Felix.
