Jasmine’s mother, Mrs. Aileen Delos Santos-Estolloso says of her daughter’s debut on the theme and concept of her daughter’s debut on January 05, 2020, held at The Royal Mandaya Hotel in Davao City: “I wanted to look back in time on my culture and heritage, and according to my daughter Jasmine, we can just add a millennial touch on the theme. That is why we came up with a Modern Filipiniana concept. Thanks to our coordinator,”Ate Aquee”, who conceptualized everything to make it unique.”

“The Royal Mandaya Hotel was the perfect answer to achieve the modern Filipiniana concept. That moment was unforgettable and simply the best. My family would like to commend the Royal Mandaya Hotel. Everyone was accommodating. Their GM welcomed us in his office to listen to our queries, and the sales people made us feel very important, they wanted to know what we needed and how we wanted the venue to look like.”

“During rehearsals the staff was very hospitable and friendly. On the day of the event, the experience was really great. Guests were so happy and everyone said “Masarap ang pagkain, sulit na sulit” (the food was delicious). We exceeded our guaranteed number of guests but we were not embarrassed. They were so quick to respond to the need…

Additional tables and chairs and more food was served. After the event we stayed at Mandaya Suite. Very nice room. You will really appreciate everything. Amazing! “Instagramable” as the millennials say. The amount we spent was really worth it. No regrets!”
