Ask Candy: What Was Your Debut Like?

Throwback: here's what debuts were like during our time.

Turning 18 is kind of a big deal, but not all debutantes throw a party with a traditional cotillion. These days, 18th birthday parties are becoming grander and grander. Here's a peek at how we celebrated our coming-of-age back then. #throwback

"My debut was a small gathering in my lola's backyard and my friends dragged me onstage for a surprise dance number (it was a hit K-pop dance at the time so we all knew it) which I hope will never see the light of day." —Kaye, Editorial Assistant

"This was at my friend Mikko's advanced 18th birthday celebration-slash-despedida. She flew to Alaska after high school, so we celebrated her debut a year early. It was just held at her place in Antipolo and though I don't really remember the details (it was a long time ago, haha), I remember we had so much fun! Can you spot me in the photo?" —Macy, Web Managing Editor
