Debut Party Now, Pulubi Later

14383393 10153925530328034 1683924617

Mag de-debut ka na ba?
May anak ka bang magde-debut na?
Nahihilo at nabibigla ka ba sa dami ng gagastusin?

Marami tayong bagay na hinihiling at pinapangarap para sa ating mga anak o ‘yung mga bata mismo who will turn 18 soon.

May iba sa atin who subscribe to the notion na once tumapak sa ganitong edad, dapat paghandaan o dapat salubungin in a BIG WAY because we feel that it???s something significant. It???s like, a right of passage.

Yes, this may signify adulthood, pero hindi kailangang gumastos tayo ng labis-labis para dito.

Ano bang nagiging mali sa ganitong okasyon?

UUTANGIN ANG PANG-CELEBRATE

You can celebrate big events quietly and in a frugal manner.
Kung manghihiram ka pa ng pera, diyan tayo magkaka-problema.

Kung ikaw ay magulang, huwag naman sanang mag-celebrate tayo now, pulubi naman later.

Kung ikaw ay anak, huwag naman sanang i-subject ang mga magulang sa financial pressure just because you???re turning 18.

May pondo ka bang inilaan para mag-celebrate?

Hindi lang ‘yung venue and food ang pagkakagastusan. There???s a whole lot more!

UNNECESSARY EXPENSES

  • Pre-debut shoot.
  • Gown or dress DURING the event.
  • Gown or dress AFTER the event.
  • Hotel accommodations.
  • Photographer.
  • Videographer.
  • Souvenirs.
  • After-party.

Kung titingnan nating mabuti, kailangan ba talaga ang lahat ng ito?
I don???t think so. Because personally speaking, mas maganda pa rin ang simpleng salo-salo lang, PERO mas may kabuluhan ang ireregalo natin sa kanila.

Again, kung kaya ng budget, walang masama. Pero if we???re only given a choice between these things or something that she can use as she enters a new phase in her life, go for the second choice.

TIP, imbis na bonggang handaan:
‘Yung matitipid natin o dapat gagastusin, put it in a savings account na nakapangalan sa anak.
Give her an educational plan or a scholarship grant.

PA-IMPRESS

“Minsan lang ???to. Dapat maganda at sosyal ang venue.”
“Naku! Tiyak, maiinggit ang mga classmates mo.”
“Sige, go lang! Maski ipang-utang natin, basta matuloy lang.”

Ito ‘yung kalaban ng gastos eh, ‘yung pagpapa-impress sa mga bisita.

Usually kasi, we focus too much on what people will say about the event. Kaya ‘di bale nang magipit, mangutang, o masimot – basta maipakita lang sa mga kumbitado na kaya nilang magpa-party ng ganoon ka-engrande.

Dapat:

  • Long buffet table, para marami SILANG pagpilian.
  • Maganda ang souvenirs, para matuwa SILA.
  • Bongga ang invitation, para simula pa lang, pasabog na!

Lahat para sa kanila. Sa iba. Remember, our focus must be on our child and not on other people.

Always consider:
“Ano ba ‘yung makakabuti sa anak ko?”
“Ano ba ‘yung talagang kailangan niya?”

INGGIT

“Bakit ‘yung classmate ko nag-party? Ako, hindi?”
“Bakit kaya nilang maghanda ng ganoon kalaki?”

Alam niyo mga kapatid, ang inggit ang magtutulak sa atin to go beyond our limits or what we can only afford.

Pinipilit lang kasi natin ang isang bagay na hindi naman talaga natin kaya, just to end what we???re currently feeling.

Don???t let this control you.
Tandaan niyo na wala tayong dapat ika-inggit dahil gaya nga ng sabi ko, ‘di bale nang simple, basta secured naman ang finances.

THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.

Bakit gusto mong mag-celebrate ng engrandeng debut?
Bakit kaya ang mahal ng mga gastusin mo para dito?
Ano kaya ang pwede mong alisin o iwasan para hindi madisgrasya ang wallet?
