MNL48 October birthday celebrants Ruth, Jaydee, Rans, Ella, Erica and Mari were overwhelmed by the love and support of their fans as they celebrate their birthdays during the first Seitansai event held at Movie Stars Café on October 14, 2018.
It was a special day for both the celebrants Jaydee (October 2), Ruth (October 10), Mari (October 14), Rans (October 18), Erica (October 19), and Ella (October 30) and their fans. The girls prepared a very special performance of “Umiindak na Saya” and “Talulot ng Sakura” together with the Senbatsu members as their way of extending their gratitude to their fans who came and showed their support.
Aside from performances, the event was also filled with fun activities where the idols took time to get along with their fans and supporters playing Aitakatta – Gustong Makita dance contest, MNL48 trivia game, and the much-awaited grand raffle where two lucky fans won an exclusive thank you card from MNL48 Center Girl Sheki and Team Captain Alice.
One of the highlights of the event was the touching messages from the celebrants’ closest friends among the MNL48 members and the celebrants’ birthday wishes and heart-felt thank you to their supporters.
One of October celebrants Ruth emotionally expressed how grateful she is to all the group’s supporters. “Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng pumunta, sana po patuloy pa po namin kayong mapasaya. Sana mas maging successful pa ‘yung MNL48 and patuloy niyo po kaming suportahan and sana po lagi po kayong masaya kasi your happiness is also my happiness.”
Often called as twins, Sela sends her sincere message to Mari, who also shared how adorable their relationship is. “Cute po ni Mari kasi sinasabi niya sakin gusto niya ako maging ate. Mari happy happy birthday! Ngayong 16 years old ka na, I know broad na ‘yung knowledge mo, and we trust you na lahat ng decisions mo sa buhay ay magiging okay.”
Moreover, Jaydee wishes to receive more blessings and opportunities for her and for MNL48 as a group respectively. “Maraming maraming salamat po sa lahat ng dumalo sa Seitansai, sana marami pa pong blessing and opportunities na ibibigay sa MNL48 and sakin po.”
Ella, on the other hand noted her appreciation to all the fans who came to support them. “Thank you po talaga sa lahat ng nag punta sobrang naappreciate po namin lahat ng efforts niyo na kahit Sunday po ngayon and family day sinamahan niyo pa rin po kami dito,” she said.
Furthermore, Abby assured Erica that she will always be there for her whenever she wants to share something or just to have a small talk with her. “Sana mas marami ka pang mapasayang tao, basta nandito lang ako lagi para sayo,” Abby said.
Rans also shared the stage with Alice and Sheki performing their own version of “Talulot ng Sakura” as requested by co-members and fans. Sheki then admitted that her relationship with Rans before their Japan trip was awkward but she eventually got close to her.
“Sana wag ka talaga magbabago kasi nung andun na kami sa Japan nakilala namin siya and magaling talaga siya makisama kaya ‘yung ugali mo na yun ang magdadala sayo sa success,” Sheki said.
To end the program, Center Girl Sheki overwhelmingly thanked all the people behind MNL48 and to God on behalf of her co-members. “Thank you po sa lahat ng pumunta,nakakatuwa po na andito po kayo para samahan kami palagi. Sobrang lakas po ng support niyo sa amin events man or sa botohan and sa lahat. Hindi po namin ine-expect ‘yung support na binigay niyo sa debut album namin. Kaya sana po patuloy niyo lang po suportahan ang MNL48, balang araw magpe-perform tayo sa Philippine Arena,” she concluded.
