my prom dream come true!!!! ♥




i never went to any prom. not when i was a junior, not when i was a senior, not at any other schools' prom. i had issues with my then-boyfriend that caused me to miss this major event in a high school kids' life.

i never went to any prom..

til i was 26 years old.. :))))

vince is the program director for football at feu-fern, and because he was invited as faculty, he asked me to be his date. it was such a dream come true!!!! so much so that i immediately called one of my favorite designers, joey samson, to rush a gown for me, and one of my favorite make up artists, steven doloso, to do my make up for me, and my hair stylist for a decade now, alex carbonell, to do my hair. hahaha, CAREER! well, its a dream come true right? so why not a dream team to help fix me up too? i think it was all worth it because when vince saw me all dolled up, all he was able to say was, "WOW." aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw.. that moment made all the preparations worth it. :) and of course i will say that vince looked amazing in his randy ortiz suit. :)

of course, we had the obligatory "full body prom photo before leaving the house". :p





i can't believe the invitation had our names on it! i was sooo kilig. i felt so high school all over again. as in i actually felt a little nervous that moment before stepping out of the car and that moment before stepping into the venue!





vince had six scholars for football who attended that prom, all from out of manila, and so we all helped put together outfits for the boys. vince sponsored their white polos, they all got their suits and ties from a rental, and i'm sooo thankful to converse for sponsoring their super cool leather high cut chuck taylors!! they looked so cool decked out in suits but casual in chucks!!

i actually also felt half feeling, and half left out, kasi hindi na pala uso ang full long gown to proms nowadays?! hahaha! 95% of the girls were in cocktail dresses! i stuck out like a sore thumb in my black ball gown, but then i felt like a princess. so that was okay. hahaha.





being around a decade older than these high school kids, of course there was no chance we could win "prom king and queen".. hahaha. (asa pa! but honestly, yes umasa ako ng slight! :p hahaha!) but the next best thing happened, because although we couldn't win it, we did give out the award for "prom king and queen"!!!! that isn't us slow dancing in the photo, but then during the second slow song, vince asked me to dance my first slow dance everrrrrr.... :)))) (sorry cheesyyyy!)





more than just us enjoying, we had so much fun watching the boys have fun. they're all from different provinces in the country, and this was their first "glamorous" event ever, and it was awesome seeing them enjoying themselves! it was especially awesome to see one of the most shy boys, nash, ask this cute girl he likes, to slow dance with him. aaaaaaaaaaaw....





thank you for sharing my first ever prom experience with me!!!! :p cheers to many more firsts! despite being years late, it really is never too late to have a "first". :)

Dream come true at karir talaga! It's never too late for anything sabi nga nila diba? Even si Juday diba late na xa ang debut?

Super sweetness and super cheezy pero super enjoy ko ang blog mo. Nareminisce ko tuloy ang HS prom namin! Buti ikaw naisayaw ka ni Vince, ako di ako naisayaw ng crush ko kasi I was no where to be found - naka kalat sa dance floor. hehehe

Well, that was a nice blog for this week. I was lucky to have prom two in a row (Junior year and Senior year) because I early understand that it is vital. Gladly, you still remember to be in a prominade kasi it is one of te highlights of your life. I mean pwede natin syang i-consider na isa sa mga Sacraments... in my point of view... so, that's nice you came back. One of my dream dates in a prom is YOU actually. That's all.

maganda_214 said...

awwww.. i also didn't get a chance to experience prom :((( feeling ko tuloy na-miss ko ang kalahati ng buhay ko. you're 26, i'm 20 so may 6 years pa ako to experience it pero sana ma-experience ko siya talaga!! @_@

I'm happy for you, ate bianca! :):):)

Clarrise said...

definitely an aww moment. :) we didn't have prom in high school but we did have a graduation ball. over-all, it was a bit dull but the memories managed to stay with me throughout the years..

dada said...

congratualations miss bianca!
prom din namin next friday. na-excite tuloy ako.
and by the way.. you're so gorgeous with your gown. PRINCESS! hahaha. i love it. :D

in our school,

Dane said...

Ang sweet and ang cute Ate Bianca!

I can say you enjoyed your prom. To date, 4 prom nights na ang na-attend ko, pero mas romantic ang experience mo!

Belated Happy Valentine! :)

Raine said...

We had Senior Prom in highschool but since we're in a Catholic School, we never experienced the slow dance... The School Director didn't allow sweet songs, only club songs ... huhuhu... Sad... Until now, I haven't experienced being invited for a slow dance in the floor...

But, like you said, "it really is never too late to have a first." I hope I'll have mine soon...☺

Marla said...

Aww. cool :)) I love your dress, btw :)

sharielzoe said...

oh noh ang huli ko na s ablog na 'to kasi..ang gwapo ni Vince hay naku so happy for you Bianca!

Anonymous said...

Hi Bianca,

I missed a lot of news about you lately. So, Vince is the current (and hopefully the last) love of your life. I told you there is life after that director. Did I just say I told you so?

Luckily for you, you didn't wait for god to bring that other guy back to you. Otherwise, you would leave this world a spinster. God is too busy making sure the sparrows fly to worry about something so trivial as your heart.

Now, about that idea of yours to take up philosophy, may I now take this opportunity to dissuade you from further pursuit of that ephemeral objective? If you study philosophy in Ateneo you will be assimilated further into the religious and philosophical gobbledygook of that school. Instead, take up some other pursuit more suited to your temperament. May I suggest law instead? The Ateneo law school is one of the best in the country. Take advantage of it.

I'm not joking, law is one of the most practical philosophies there is. The philosophy of law involves more of the reasoning, scholarship and logic that you fell in love with in religious philosophy. Furthermore, unlike religion, legal philosophy is immensely practical and more rigorous than the problems of religion. Religious philosophy discuss questions that cannot be answered because they ask questions that don't mean squat in the real world. The ideas of indulgences, limbo of the infants, purgatory etc., were born of brilliant minds shackled by religion.

In contrast, legal philosophy deals with the problems of
human conduct in the light of society. It is every bit
as interesting as your favorite philosophy. Knowledge of law will
also give you the legal and practical tools you need to further your social advocacies.

Think about it, Bianca.

I now leave you with something for your mind to chew on.
The following link is your introduction
to legal philosophy. It's called the CASE OF THE
SPELUNCEAN EXPLORERS. Take care.

Anonymous said...

wow! i love this post! i love when you said that no matter how many years late, it is never too late to experience a "first."

i am your age and was an nbsb for the longest time...until he comes along. to top it off, i am his first too. now we're happily sharing many "first" as a couple and we're enjoying it so much!;p

i pray you and vince continue sharing many firsts together!;p

cheers to love and happiness (cheeeeesy!!! ganito ba talaga pag in love?!;p)!

promking said...

congrats..

iba talaga ang mga prom.. to win the title of promking, you should be ready not on the day itself, but about a month or so before the prom..

i got the title twice, during my junior and senior years. ahehe/

you know what miss bianca I'm so happy that you're so happy too with your love life:) But I firmly believe that Mr. right man of yours is along the way.. I watched "I miss you like crazy" then suddenly i've seen and heard the name LIANNE! I'm so shocked then i smiled sila nga talaga hindi lang sa ngayon panahon.. its the sign I'd waited for.. the name lianne:)

witty J said...

Nice! Yeah, it's never too late to experience some good things in life. Oh, you should have posted a pic of your first slow dance. :-D Glad you enjoyed your prom.
