Your dad will always have that special place in your heart, and at your debut, you want to highlight that unique bond at your debut through the father-daughter dance. Add your own twist to the tradition by choosing the perfect song that celebrates that precious moment with Daddy Dearest.

Check out these five awesome tunes that will fit your (and your dad's) personality for a night worth remembering.

  1. "Treasure" by Bruno Mars
    If drama isn't really your thing, you can get your groove on with this 2013 hit by Bruno Mars, "Treasure." Take to the dance floor and kick off the night with your dad by dancing to an upbeat party song. With a disco-feel, the song will set the vibe for an epic night. It is originally a song about a love for a woman, but it can also be used to show how you value the people who love you and those you love.

  2. "You First Believed" by Hoku
    If you want to get a little sentimental, then this might be a great pick. A heartfelt song about someone who inspires and believes in you no matter what, Hoku's "You First Believed" perfectly echoes the sentiment of daughters who would always run to their dads for advice. For an unexpected twist, have this played by an orchestra and slow dance with your dad. There surely won't be a dry eye in the crowd, so be sure to have some tissue on hand so you won't mess your make-up!

  3. "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder
    Start the ball rolling with a rhythm and blues song with your dad. If you want a sweet but non-sappy tune, Stevie Wonder's Isn't She Lovely will be perfect your party. Inspired by the birth of Stevie Wonder's daughter, this speaks about a father's genuine love for his daughter. This is best for an elegant party--you may even ask a live band to play the song. Feel that precious dance with your dad as he sways you to becoming a lady.

  4. "Keep Your Head Up" by Ben Howard
    Establish a carefree tone as you step on the dance floor with your dad. The tender "Keep Your Head Up" by Ben Howard can easily connect to the audience with its extremely soothing sound and heartfelt lyrics. Let your dad feel how much you love him by dancing with him as this track plays in the background. If you're the type who's not too showy with your feelings, and you always run to your dad for strength, then this song may be a great way to tell your dad you love him dearly. 

  5. "Do I Make You Proud" by Taylor Hicks
    Let the soulful "Do I Make You Proud" play while you and your dad take to the dancefloor. The ballad, which builds up to a dramatic finish, will perfectly show your dad that you appreciate everything he's done for you. As Taylor Hicks sings, "Because of you, I am standing tall. My heart is full with endless gratitude," your dad will surely beam with pride.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
