The venue was transformed by FJ Sionson into an ocean wonderland using sheer fabrics, chandeliers and sprays of flowers. The venue glowed with blue lighting to give the impression that one was underwater.

It was while wearing this gown that she danced with her 18 roses who included Paras, Madrid and Gabriel.

For the last rose, her father stepped in, and she became teary-eyed as she wrapped him in an embrace.

She surprised guests with a duet with Quintos, singing “Panaginip” a capella.

Her party comes after a controversial post on Instagram Stories wherein she said she was afraid while at the Davao International Airport. She later clarified in a deleted post that she feared her flight might be canceled as she had “personal commitments,” which some assumed referred to her debut.  /ra
