23rd birthday

As you all know, I turned 23 two months ago.. but up until now, I still get to feel that “birthday spirit” and you probably know why. Just three days ago, I had my 9th birthday celebration hosted by an ADN group– the last birthday celeb on my calendar for this year. Grabe yung siyam no (23+9=32) feeling 32 na tuloy ako! Anyway, let me share with you guys some brief stories about these parties.

1. #NicomaineAt23 (day of 3-3)

We had prepared a simple prod number in barangay; just a plain birthday celeb on TV. Gave thanks to the bosses for the opportunity to be part of the show; to the dabarkads for treating me as part of the EB family; and to JoWaPao for the being the best kuyas I could ever have.

You all know I am not good at delivering speeches. (Anything that requires me to speak verbally, to be completely honest.) Perhaps it has something to do with me being really shy in front of people. And the image of them waiting and looking at me to say something rattles me to the core. I need to overcome that fright. Anyway, Maine and ADN supporters sent cakes for me, too! Oh and the brands I endorse as well. Grabe, the number of cakes I get during my birthday is so overwhelming! I remember joking Kuya Mike (our future kagawad) about it, sabi ko “Kapag onti nalang yung cake sa birthday ko ibig sabihin wala ng nagmamahal sa akin.” Lol!

2. My actual birthday party (night of 3-3)

It was held at FUCT (Friends U Can Trust) in Makati. I opted for a simple bar/club where my guests can go hard as they want without me minding about damaging the place. Lol you know what I mean? I invited my friends from high school and college and some friends from work. So nice to see my high school barkada and Sagamore pals who I haven’t seen in ages! It was a really fun night! Somewhat accomplished my birthday-celeb-goal; to get everybody drunk. Don’t know whether I should give Kuya Pao the “Pinaka lasing” award for having no idea how he got home barefooted; or Tristan who slept at the venue and woke up inside his car the following morning. LOL nonetheless it was a solid party!

I already have a birthday theme in mind for next year’s party! Yay, can’t wait to turn 24…..not.


3. #MaineLegendaryAt23 (3-9)

A How I Met Your Mother-themed party thrown by Solid Maine United! (One of my fave series!) Grabe to, from the moment I saw the invitation, yung excitement ko over the top na. I was required to wear a suit for the party to honour Mr. Stinson and try to be legendary for a night. I thought it was just me who’s going to be in a suit that evening but seeing everyone in the venue wearing the same was amazing! I mean you know how themed parties go, right? You don’t get to make all of your guests to follow the dress code. Laging may mangilan-ngilan na pasaway! Sabi ng strictly black and white, tapos may nakapink at blue. Sabi ng floral, tapos may nakastripes. Sakit sa bangs!

Each SMU group prepared a song/dance presentation for that night. Nakakaaliw ang kanya-kanyang pautot! And then of course an AVP that is always present during parties. Nakakaemosyonal na AVPs! Are they really meant to make you think about your life and cry? Lols. If you’re gonna watch the AVP below, please skip the first part. My gad, hanggang ngayon hindi ko pa din kaya panoorin! Kahiya-hiya! 

After everything, it was already time for “the speech”. Thanked everybody for all the effort to make this HIMYM party a success. Thought of singing a song to them as another way of saying thanks. And Salamat by Yeng Constantino was the perfect song to sing at that moment. Then I figured right after singing it.. that it’s the perfect song to dedicate to all the people who’s been with me in this journey. Salamat.

Oh but it didn’t end there. Ranjit was waiting for us outside! A private after-party for me and my friends in a party bus! Got home at around 4am, thank God it was a Saturday! It was a night filled with smiles, laughter and love. Thank you SMU for the HIMYM party. It was….

legendary


4. #EnchantressMaine23 (3-14)

Two words: Fairytale feels. An enchanting celebration with SMF and Team No Group! These are the highlights of the evening:
– The sack dance performance that made everyone laugh (Sa pang-ookray ng mga hosts– Oreo and Betty)
– AVP with the OrgComm singing along to Donna Cruz’s “I Can”
– Meeting the Singing Angels Quartet (Maricor, Mary Danelle, Camille Michaela, Czarina Michaela)
– The lady (RJ if I am not mistaken) who gave a talk about how she sees me as a “bearer of light”. It was a long speech and she tackled so many things but I will never forget the time she asked me to put my hand on my chest and feel my heartbeat. She said, “Sa pang sampung heartbeat, isipin mo kaming mga nagmamahal sayo. Sigurado kasya kami lahat diyan kahit hindi lang kami sampu kasi malaki ang puso mo.” I was trying not to get emotional when I did it because everyone’s eyes were on me. Nahihiya ako. But let me tell you, I do it whenever I feel lonely; to remind me that I am not alone and there are more than ten people who genuinely care for me. Helps me get back on my feet. 🙂
– Cake mapping surprise
– Me being emotional (again) when I gave my speech about my “10 supporters”.. hay. Basta yun. Ayoko na pagusapan. Haha!

This night made me realise on another level how blessed I am for others to regard me as a blessing to their lives. Salamat ng sobra sa lahat.


5. #MaineRemarkableAt23 (3-21)

Organised by Maine PH to celebrate my birthday and their second year anniversary. An ube keso-themed party, charot! A 10-minute (or less) AVP was shown; a compilation of group photos and video greetings from other Maine PH members/chapters from all over the country. Many members were not able to attend the party but through the video presentation their presence were felt. Thank you very much for allotting time for this!

rem rem1

We had to leave earlier because there was another birthday party scheduled that night. Back to back! Timetable was adjusted because I arrived late (Teka, may rason ako!) I came from Pampanga that day (Juan For All) that’s why it took me so long to get to the hotel and get ready for two parties that had different motifs!


6. #FUNtasticMaineAt23 (3-21)

Second party that evening; theme was summer/floral. Gulat ako when I entered the venue, ang daming tao! Members of Mommies and Titas of Alden and Maine filled the whole room. A couple of song and dance numbers were part of the program. There’s this little boy who sang one of my favourite songs (the song that can make me cry!) Feels Like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk. It was sung beautifully. Ang galing nung bagets talaga! And of course, that tita who sang Imagine You & Me, may pa-duet pa kami sa huli. Katuwa! At one point, the hosts called me up on stage. Akala ko magsspeech na ako kasi inabutan na ako ng mic. But then the band started playing Sway by Bic Runga. I was waiting for someone to go on stage, little did I know it was me who’s going to sing it. Surprise pala nila sakin ito na surprise sakanila, huwaw surprised talaga ako! Hahaha!

Teka may ibang paandar din ang titas and mommies! They went on stage individually, each one holding letters (that spelled my name: Nicomaine Dei) and had prepared an adjective that starts with the letter assigned to them, with explanation yun syempre.

fun

It was a great way to end a tiring day. Fun back-to-back parties! Thank you Titas and Mommies of A&M! Ito lang ang masasabi ko..
T – hank you
I – nfairness
T – alaga namang
A – ng tindi ng
S – uporta
A – t syempre
N – g
D – edikasyon
M – o
O – o, ikaw (po)
M – araming salamat sa pagiging
M – abuting tagahanga
I – love you all
E – spesyal kayong lahat
S – aakin

LOL!


7. #MaineMagicalAt23 (3-22)

Aurora Borealis-themed party organised by both Maine and ADN fan groups. Highlight of the night was the dress mapping that made everything magical. Bongga! Talagang every party may kanya-kanyang paandar! Love it! Also cannot believe the crowd made my nanay and tatay sing and dance.

mag mag4 mag2 mag3

Fun-filled night!


8. VivaLaVidaMaine (5-18)

Mayo na, may birthday party pa! It’s been two months yet I am still celebrating my birthday. Grabe talaga. This party organised by Maine Alliance Worldwide was held in a yacht! Wow talk about taking birthday parties to the next level. No wonder sa susunod sa eroplano na o kaya submarine. Choz! It was my first time to have/be in a yacht party.. nakakahilo pala? Lol it didn’t matter for some especially to those who were partying at the deck. It was fun to just simply watch them having fun.

The night ended with fireworks radiating the night sky; Coldplay’s Viva La Vida playing in the background. Ohh my love for fireworks and Coldplay! Anyway, MAU opted for Viva La Vida because of its meaning “Live the life”. Expressing their full support on me living my life the way I want it to be; doing whatever makes me happy. What a gift. 🙂

9. #MaineInspirationalAt23 (5-24)

Last birthday party on my calendar for this year. Cherry blossom-themed party with Certified Aldub United! This was just three days ago, fresh pa sa memory ko yung ibang ganap! Everyone in the venue was wearing my favourite colour! Andito din yung cute kid from #FUNtasticMaineAt23, this time he sang Sway. May pa-duet din sa huli kasi inabutan ako ng mic! Hehe

cherins cher1 cher2

Couldn’t help but get emotional during some parts of the program. Like the part when this Tita read a speech in front of everybody; talking about how she sees me as a person. I was trying to ingest every good word that comes out of her mouth.. and it made me think “Am I really that kind of person?” I started questioning my existence. But it doesn’t end there; in fact, it all started at that moment.

When they played the AVP, they had messages and quotes alongside photos. And I’ll never forget this one thing that hit me the most, it goes something like “Maybe God didn’t add days to your life because you need it. Maybe you are still alive because someone out there needs you.” I.. believe so.

When the group leaders went on stage to sing “Thank You” for me/with me. Meh, ayun na.. Looking at them and seeing those big smiles on their faces made me feel weak and strong at the same time. Ewan, may mga moments talaga na ramdam mo lang lahat. When you are trying to grasp everything in front of you. Diba no? O tama na, baka maiyak pa ako dito. Charot!

At salamat din pala sa mga donasyon niyo para kay EJ! Nakakatuwa, sana marami pa tayong matulungan!

By the way, there were also groups who celebrated my birthday in our McDonald’s branch in Sta. Clara. Maraming salamat po sainyo!


Everything was such a delightful and overwhelming “birthday experience”, maka-siyam ka ba naman eh! But really, it is not about having lotsa cakes and parties. The mere thought of these people coming together to celebrate your birthday with you will instantly make your heart full. It feels good to love; but it feels so much better to feel loved.

To you who are reading this (kung hindi ka masamang elemento), I don’t care if you haven’t gone to any of my parties/events. If you accept and love me as I am.. that is enough. Please know that I am grateful for you; not because of the compliments, gifts, bday parties, power tweets etc. I am grateful because you are still here. Thank you for not giving up on me. Please take some time to listen to this.

Salamat. 🙂

    Hi Maine! Kaya napakarami mong birthday celebration kasi kaming mga tagahanga mo iisa lang ang gustong gawin iyon ay ang masuklian ang kaligayahang dulot mo sa amin sa loob ng tatlong taon. Saka sobrang sulit na i-treat ka sa birthday mo kasi di ka madamot magpakita ng appreciation sa mga effort namin. So asahan mo na ganyan pa din karami ang cakes/birthday celebration mo in many more years to come. Hehehe

    We Love you so much Maine. 💛

    Ang haba Meng! But I read every word, some of them binalik-balikan ko pa….and each one reached my heart. You made me smile, tear up & laugh all at the same time. 9 Birthday parties are not enough to celebrate you Maine, you should be celebrated every day for you give us inspiration and joy every single day. 😌💛🙏🏻

    I think that your “Salamat” is getting a ripple effect. Paying it forward, ika nga. Your existence led us to realize that no matter what one status in life is, we can always do something to make others happy. That happiness you give to us is shared. And that goes on and on and on.
    Salamat Maine. Stay true forever. 🤗

    Good morning Maine!
    Pang guiness record na ata ang number of celebrations/parties for 23rd bday mo…
    Honestly dumating ako sa point na humahanap ako ng flaws mo para bumitaw…dahil nobody is perfect…pero still nandito ako kasi lagi kang may ginagawa na “Hindi makapagpabitaw” sa paghanga,at pagsuporta, sa yo kahit sa malayo lng. At lagi akong magpapasalamat sa kakaibang sayang naidudulot mo sa Nanay ko for 3 years now and counting… mag 70y/o na si Nanay this Oct.. (Sa TV, movie, IG posts, YT clips, at magazine covers ka lng nya nakikita pero ang saya saya na nya)
    God bless you and Alden more. (package deal talaga ang love and support ko sa inyong dalawa e 😳) May God keep you both safe and healthy.

    P.S. ang hilig ko mag comment dito sa blog mo kasi feeling ko nababasa mo comment ko dito..konti lng kasi nagcocomment dito… .Feeling ko lng nmn kaya pagbigyan mo na ako 😂.

    Meng!!! Thank you so much for this blog update! Nagpapaiyak ka naman eh! That last part, tagos sa bone marrow at abot hanggang dito sa AUH ang heartfelt gratitude mo. I, and I know there are lots of people out there, na will stay and keep on loving you (and Alden) because this is how we know how we can repay you for all the happiness you brought to our lives. The pessimist in you may always make you doubt yourself if you deserve all these but let me tell you, YOU DESERVE ALL THE BLESSINGS. You deserve it and more because your heart is good and pure. You may not be perfect but that’s okay, in this time many people would take imperfections, as long as it is true. Stay true to yourself, c’est la vie, live life. Keep on shining and shedding light to others thru your smile and antics or simoly by being you. Nandito lang ako/kami at susuporta sa iyo/inyo. 💛💙💚

    kaya ang sarap mo mahalin meng sobrang appreciative ka sa mga nagmamahal sayo binibigyan mo talaga ng halaga katulad nung pagpnta mo sa zambales sa adn summerfest gumising ka ng 3am para lng makaattend kht ngarag ka day before dhl sa daming events mo mula rodriguez rizal tpos trinoma event tpos mothersday pa kinabukasan pero nag effort k p din umattend kaya worth it ka mahalin ng bongga 😊

    Hi man po ako makapunta sa mga parties and events mo kasi 12 yrs old po ako pero salamat po sa huling parte ng entry na to ngayon di ko na nararamdaman na wala akong kwentang fan na ni isang event wala pang napupuntahan pati sa events ng ADN Wala pa po akong napupuntahan siguro yun yung tinadhana ni Lord na mangyari sakin kasi hindi naman ako ganon kabait na bata para tuparin ni Lord mga hiling ko Pero salamat po sa inyo. Naramdaman ko po ang pagmamahal niyo sakin saaming mga fans mo po sana sa mga susunod na events makapunta na ako
    Isa pang problema wala kaming sasakyan na makakapag biyahe kung saan saan ano gagamitin namin sina

    I always love reading your blog. It always come from your heart. When i feel like youre not showing what you really feel in the 4 corners of every TV (maybe because reasons? reasons we all understand 😊) , i go here and read your blogs. This is where you are being honest the most.

    I feel you, with most of us here gets to celebrate or just have 1 party in a year (most of the time, no celebration at all lol) and here you are got 9, who wouldnt be emotional? Yet, you’re still grounded. Just blew my mind, really.

    I hope you get to post blogs more since we don’t get to see you act on TV that often. But hey! Congrats on your recent guesting(?) at DKNLK. Keep it up! With or without Alden, you’re great. Just keep doing what you love and whatever makes you happy.

    Ps: Umasa ako na ikaw kakanta ng “Salamat” on the youtube vid you included at the end. LOL

    I may not be in one of your birthday celebration this year but still I made sure na updated ako sa lahat ng celebrations. My fave was when RJ surprised you with his Happy Anniversary. Kahit hindi mo nabanggit dito sa blog mo for whatever reason there is. Am still going to support AlDub-MaiChard all the way. And I want yiu to know na NO BOYCOTT for me kahit kelan dahil alam ko ayaw mo un for Alden. At alam ko masakit na mabasa na ibboycott ng ibang ADN si Alden. LOVE YOU MAINE and RJ to the moon and back FOREVER 😍💑😙

    You made me cry. You are a lot of things. Hindi ko kayang explain how you make me feel. I’m a 47 year old woman with 4 kids pero ngayon lang, in my entire exixtence na nagmahal ako at humanga ng ganito sa isang celebrity. Iba ka, Meng. Isang biyaya na mahalin ka. Keep on shining! Keep the faith and keep being your true wonderful self. I love you, Meng!

    Thank you so much meng😭😭 Hindi talaga ako maka move on ng suotin mo yung bigay kong damit nung birthday mo nakita ko kinabusan suot mo na sa JFA😍 Hindi ko alam kung ano ang mararamdaman ko. Diba sabi mo nung 9th party mo “Hindi mo alam kung bakit madaming tao ang mahal ka? Habang buhay mo siyang itatanong sa sarili mo. Madami naman iba na mas mabait, mas magaling, mas madaling talento at mas mapagmahal pero alam mo kung ano ang sagot diyan sa katanungan mo? Ang kaya mong tumbasan ang pagmamahal ng fans mo sayo. Araw araw mo kaming pinapasaya.” Hindi din namin alam kung bakit kapag nakita ka namin bigla bigla nalang ngumingiti ang aming mga labi. Ikaw din ang nagbibigay ng inspirasyon sa amin. Sayo kami natuto na hangga’t may kayang itulong kahit maliit na bagay o halaga itulong kahit nga dasal lang na sana hindi na maipagkait pa ng iba sa kapwa. Ikaw yung minamahal ko/namin ng hindi namin alam kung bakit. (Unconditional) baga😂😂 Mahal na mahal ka namin meng. Lagi lang ako nandito para suportahan ka para suportahan kayo😊😊

    P.S. Mas lalo ako sumaya nung kilala na pala ako ng nanay mo.😂 Yung pagsabi niya sakin nung nasa party na “Oh hindi kana uuwi ng maaga ha!” Actually nung nag event ka kasi sa Trinoma 8am palang ng Morning nandun na ako kaya lang mga 6pm wala ka pa kaya inabot ko nalang kay nanay yung regalo ko sayong candies. Nandun pa yung papel na nagtrending yung sinulat ko para sayo yung parang sa “Humans Of Barangay” mo. Sana nakita mo. Kasi malayo pa ang uuwian ko taga Pagsanjan, Laguna pa kasi ako. Kaya sabi ko sa susunod na event nalang kaya nagpunta ulit ako ng 9th Birthday Party mo kasi nung nagpunta ako ng birthday mo sa Mommies & Titas medyo nahihiya pa ako. Kaya magkalayo tayo sa Picture. Nasa dulo ako. Kaya sabi ko sa sarili ko bago magpasukan “Aattend ako sa event ni Maine at hindi ako papayag na wala akong picture kasama siya eh pag mga birthday party may Photo op (so ayun na yung chance sabi ko) Tapos nagkaroon tayo ng picture sabi ko kay nanay dub nung nakaupo kayo sa table niyo “Nay tulungan mo ako makapagpapicture kay Maine edi sabi sayo ni Nanay (Nak picture daw kayo) Nagkaroon na tayo ng picture kahit medyo blurred tas nung Photo op pagbigay ko ng regalo kinuha mo na agad yung candy edi na touch agad ako😍😭 Tapos sabi ko suot mo yung damit bukas sa brgy. Hindi ko akalain na isusuot mo talaga. Parang gusto ko mahulog sa upuan ng bus dahil pauwi ako nun ng Laguna nakita ko lang sa FB Live na suot mo yung damit gusto ko umiyak, tumalon at sumigaw pero wala ako sa tamang lugar. Kinilig ako sayo. Sobra mo pahalagahan ang mga fans mo. Kaya sobrang saya ko ng dalawang araw nung party at nung kinabukasan😍😍 Maraming salamat Maine! Sana sa uulitin ulit😊😘 I love you & I miss you so much😘😘

    Thank you for uploading again! The last part didn’t make me feel guilty anymore that I didn’t (actually, never yet) went to any of your events… (I have a reason…) ’cause my parents didn’t allow me or I knew it afterwards, the exact day of the event or it was too late to tell it to my parents…
    Isa ako sa sampu…. and there are more than just ten people left…. I think ten… well um… multiplied…. ILY, Ate Maine! Hope you continue writing! You’re my inspiration when it comes to writing (nearly everything but mostly to writing).

  79. So many reasons to love you 😘

    Dear Maine,

    Bakit nga ba ikaw, Ewan ko…basta ang alam ko ang gaan sa feeling ung “aura” mo, pag wala ako sa mood at iritable ako makita ko lang ung picture mo napapasmile na ako, ayun OK na uli…sabi nga nung sister ko sa akin para daw akong timang, sabi ko naman walang basagan ng trip. Salamat din sayo, di ako magpa promise kasi sabi nga some promises are made to be broken, basta ang sa akin kahit anong mangyari sa future ung suporta ko sayo di matitibag.💛☝

    Hi Maine,
    Basher mo ako sa twitter. But, I love you so much. I really love you and want only the best for you. I really hope you quit Eat Bulaga na since they stifle your growth. You can always come back to them in due time. But, sabi mo nga sa open letter mo, ikaw naman. Sana talaga you think more of yourself. Andito lang kaming mga fans waiting for more ganaps that you deserve.

    You have so much potential in you. Keep shining, baby girl. You deserve everything. See you in more quality driven projects soon.

    Love, Etxetera

    Wow grabe, ngayon lang ako nakapasok sa blog mo after 24years, charot! It’s so nice to finally read your blog. Ako din, isa din ako sa sampu na maiiwan to support you all the way… Full bloodied ALDUB/MAICHARD Shipper ako. Always and forever. I may be “silent” pero nandito ako. Always cheering for you and RJ. One day I hope, mapapirmahan ko sayo mga magazines at book ko. Dream ko din makapunta sa sta. Maria mcdo hahaha malapit lang samin taga san jose del monte ako eh, kaya traffic lols. Any way, shine, in the most “menggay way” of shining. I love you(don’t be grossed out 😜), God bless you more.

    Omg, im literally crying. TT very heartfelt lang ng msg mo pati samin na, ang kaya lang i-offer as a fan is eto lang. Maine, may God bless you more. Always remember that you exists for a reason-makafeel ka man na sobrang down ka, just remember na there are people who are praying for you lagi-your hapiness. We loved you for who you are, and never kang malalaos sa paningin namin. Yup, invisible man ako sa mga events na present ka, pero yung pagmahahal ko sayo hindi.

  97. Yza says: Reply

    Awww. You should be the one we should thanks, because you are still here with us after the OL thingy. I really was expecting that you will include your thought or rection about Alden/Richard’s video greet (I really don’t know if it was Alden talking or Richard saying what his heart is feeling). But anyway I am also hooked to the message of one of your supporter, and it’s really true you have a big heart which all of us can fit. And by the way ngayon ko lang po nabasa yung post niyo because of the bandwidth limit, so hoping this will be fix soon.

    Am really a fan kinda of a person – i just admire an actor once then afterwards it’ll vanish just like. One thing for this time is that, i never been this curious and fanatic to anyone else but with you, Maine. I dunno, i just feel proud seeing what you have become in all aspect of your life – you’re so blessed and loved by any. And, ISA AKO SA SAMPU! Hope i can see you personally. Godbless you!
