Over the weekend, supporters of Sharlene San Pedro and Jairus Aquino organized a surprise debut party for Sharlene at Ibarra’s Garden in Malate, Manila.
The former Star Circle Kids questor, who turned 18 years old last April 5, was dolled up in a white floral lace-embroidered dress.
Close friends (L-R) CJ Navarro, Miles Ocampo, Jairus Aquino, and Igi Boy Flores came to celebrate with her.
The highlight was her 18 candles, who all delivered birthday messages which made the debutante teary-eyed.
Her best friend Miles got emotional as well.
Prior to this celebration, Miles greeted her BFF Sharlene on the day of her birthday.
Along with a photo of them taken at last year's Star Magic Ball, Miles wrote, "In this world full of 'char,' I am blessed to have you, 'Shar.'
"Happy happy birthday, my @sharlenesanpedro1! I LOVE YOU, my beshie beshie BESHIE!!!"
Sharlene’s debut doubled as a mini-charity event.
