Celebrity dermatologist Vicki Belo recalls feeling so proud to watch her English-speaking daughter, Scarlet Snow, sing "Lupang Hinirang."


Starting this July, Scarlet Snow—three-year-old daughter of celebrity dermatologists Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho—will start attending pre-school.

Vicki could not hide her excitement talking about it, "Lumalaki na yung baby namin, ang bilis."

She added, "Ngayon, she's very articulate and nanalo siya ng award—Best Story Teller—kasi napakadaldal niya.

"We're adjusting her na kasi magiging four na. Now she's only three and two months.

"I think four or five magsa-start na ng pre-school 'tapos Kinder, ganun.

"We're just adjusting to a bigger and bigger school para hindi siya ma-shock masyado.

"So right now, I think they're only 10 in one class and now they're gonna be 20 in a bigger school."

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) spoke with the beauty doctor at the launch of Vice Ganda and Bang Pineda's make-up collaboration for Vice Cosmetics on Monday, June 4.

PREPARING FOR SCHOOL. Vicki is confident that her daughter will do good in class.

She said, "She's very smart. I feel like she's advanced for her age intellectually.

"What we're trying to do is make her also emotionally, her IQ is good."

To prepare Scarlet Snow for school, Vicki and Hayden have been inviting their daughter's playmates to their house.

Vicki explained, "Kasi sanay siyang only child kasi she's the only one now, may play time palagi.

"People are inviting her to their houses, we're inviting them to our house.

"Para masanay siya na marami siyang playmates, yun ang hindi siya masyado ano pa adjusted.

"Sanay siya with the yaya, mga helpers namin sa bahay, kami.

"Lahat adults, so ngayon gusto namin mga ka-age niya."

BILINGUAL. Most of her Instagram videos feature Scarlet Snow speaking in English, does she speak Tagalog?

Vicki said, "Marunong siya, kasi pag gusto namin magsikreto from her, we usually speak Tagalog.

"And naiintindihan niya, bigla na lang she's saying, 'Mommy, why are you saying ganun?'

"And she can speak na. We're proud because she was the leader of the song 'Lupang Hinirang.'

"Ambigat ng mga words, di ba, siya ang nag-lead ng kanta.

"'Yung moving up ceremony niya, prinaktis siya ng daddy niya the night before.

"So the next day, confident na confident na siya, humingi pa siya ng mic.

"Siya daw magli-lead and alam naman niya lahat ng words."

Vicki also hopes her daughter will learn how to speak two other languages.

"We want her to really speak English and Tagalog. Hopefully, Chinese and we're hoping French."

In the meantime, the family has other plans before Scarlet Snow goes to school.

Vicki told PEP.ph, "Magbibiyahe muna kami kasi July pa start ng school niya.

The 62-year-old celebrity mom, however, admitted feeling nostalgic about Scarlet Snow's younger years.

She said, "We always look back at her IG pictures. Buti na lang may IG nung baby siya."
