Event after event, fans never missed the chance to show their love and support to the group as they joined celebrating the birthdays of Cess and Team Captain Alice today, March 24, 2019 at Movie Stars Café during the MNL48 March Seitansai.
Celebrating their birthdays, Cess on March 30 and Alice on March 29, the girls enjoyed playing Pinoy Henyo, and “Palusot Ko’y Maybe” Dance Challenge with their fans after their performance of their hit song “First Rabbit”, “Palusot Ko’y Maybe”, and “Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie” with the Senbatsu members.
Mother of Team Captain Alice, Nini De Leon emphasized how much her daughter loves being an idol. “Sobrang devoted siya sa kaniyang work, kaya po kahit maraming trials sige pa rin siya. Talagang proud ako sakaniya dahil marami na siyang napatunayan, sobrang matulungin niya.”
She also added that she’s very proud to have a good daughter who always cares for the people around her. “Pag meron siyang blessings shini-share niya sa kaniyang mga kapatid. Promise daw niya sakin na bibigyan niya ako ng diploma kaya nagsisikap siya, pinagsasabay niya ‘yung MNL48 and studies niya. Gustong gusto kasi talaga niya maging idol, dream niya ‘yun e. You are so loved, napakabuti mong anak and I’m very proud. Happy birthday, wishing you all the best, I love you anak.”
Marilou Labay also shared how much they miss their daughter MNL48 Cess who always brings joy at home. “Nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon dahil binigyan ako ng isang anak na very talented, at mapagmahal. Napakalungkot ng bahay, ‘yan kasi ang kwela e, palatawa at makulit. Wala naman akong ibang wini-wish anak kundi maging successful ka sa career na pinasok mo. Nandito lang si mama kasama mo ako, hindi kita iiwan hanggang sa huli. Laban lang anak, wag kang tumgil sa pangarap mo dahil kasama mo kami ni daddy.”
Moreover, two of Cess’ closest friends Necca and Princess had a surprise visit during their celebration with gifts and special message for her. “Lagi niya po sinasabi before na wala siyang totoong kaibigan and sa MNL48 lang siya nakahanap ng true friend and we’re blessed po kasi kami ‘yun. Gusto lang naming malaman mo na proud kami sayo, we love you,” Necca to Cess.
Sela, on the other hand expressed her happiness on Alice being their overall Team Captain. “Nagpapasalamat kami kasi ikaw ‘yung naging captain ng MNL48 First Generation iba ‘yung pag handle mo ng stress and school. Proud kami sayo, mahal na mahal ka namin. I wish na lahat ng mga ambisyon mo sa buhay makamtan mo kasi napakabait mong tao.”
“Alam mo sobrang lungkot ko talaga kasi wala ka sa tabi ko. Para sakin ikaw ang pinaka-best captain sa lahat ng 48G,” Sheki emotionally said to Alice.
Furthermore, a special teaser surprised the fans as well as the members present at the Seitansai event where they had the first glimpse of MNL48’s upcoming 3rd Single, “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” and a short a cappella sample of the song.
“Nagpapasalamat kami kasi sa maraming dumaan na events pero nandito pa rin kayo hindi niyo pinalagpas ung Seitansai namin ni Cess, salamat po dahil sinamahan niyo kami ngayon I love you. We will also love you like you have loved us,” Alice concluded.
