MNL48 Ecka, Thea and Rowee are grateful to celebrate their birthdays as Second Year members with their fans and friends at the Seitansai event on May 25, 2019 at Movie Stars Café.
As they turn a year older this month of May, Ecka on May 5, Thea on May 8, and Rowee on May 26, the idols prepared energetic performances of their hit tracks “Bingo!”, “Igai Ni Mango” and “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel”, together with the third single Senbatsu.
The celebrants also treated their fans with a special solo performance of their favorite songs. Rowee showcased her singing prowess with “The Climb”, “Wings” and “Torete”; and “A million Dreams” and Japanese song “Best friend” for Thea. Ecka had an impersonation of her co-members, lyrical dance of “Lay Me Down” and an acoustic version of “Dilemma”.
The event became even more memorable when the idol’s closest friends also gave their special message to Ecka, Thea and Rowee.
Coleen narrated how they became close and shared that she‘s lucky to have an ate like Rowee. “Before MNL48 close na talaga kami ni ate Rowee nasi nagkasama kami sa isang group. Napakamatampuhin niya pero kahit galit nakangiti yan. Parang hindi mo siya makikitang malungkot. Cheerful siya, thank you kasi nagiging ate ka sakin, lalo na kapag may nagawa akong hindi maganda sinasabihan niya ako. Thank you ate, I love you.”
“Thank you dahil lagi kang nandiyan sa tabi ko at go with the flow ka sa mga trip namin. Hindi ako makapaniwala na tayo tayo pa rin ang magkakasama simula nung nangangarap palang tayo, hanggang sa ngayon. Pero kahit ganito ako ka-bully, love na love ka namin,” Kay emotionally said to Thea.
Sela then expressed how grateful she is to have Ecka in her life. “I’m so grateful na nagkaroon ako ng isang kaibigan na ganito kabait. Alam niyo kung gaano ka-genuine si Ecka. Simula top 75, I’m so thankful that you’re always there, kahit sa mga hardships kaya thankful ako kay Lord na binigyan niya ako ng kagaya mo.”
“Sobrang tuwa niya po na nandito po kayong lahat. Kilala po namin siya na binuhos niya po lahat ng capabilities niya and ‘yung craft niya pinapakita niya sa aming lahat. Ngayong birthday mo gusto naming malaman mo na naa-appreciate ka namin,” Belle added.
“Thank you po MNLoves, binigyan niyo po ng kulay ‘yung birthday namin, kayo ‘yung pinakamagandang gift na natanggap namin,” Ecka concluded.
