She also added that she’s very proud to have a good daughter who always cares for the people around her. “Pag meron siyang blessings shini-share niya sa kaniyang mga kapatid. Promise daw niya sakin na bibigyan niya ako ng diploma kaya nagsisikap siya, pinagsasabay niya ‘yung MNL48 and studies niya. Gustong gusto kasi talaga niya maging idol, dream niya ‘yun e. You are so loved, napakabuti mong anak and I’m very proud. Happy birthday, wishing you all the best, I love you anak.”

Marilou Labay also shared how much they miss their daughter MNL48 Cess who always brings joy at home. “Nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon dahil binigyan ako ng isang anak na very talented, at mapagmahal. Napakalungkot ng bahay, ‘yan kasi ang kwela e, palatawa at makulit. Wala naman akong ibang wini-wish anak kundi maging successful ka sa career na pinasok mo. Nandito lang si mama kasama mo ako, hindi kita iiwan hanggang sa huli. Laban lang anak, wag kang tumgil sa pangarap mo dahil kasama mo kami ni daddy.”

Moreover, two of Cess’ closest friends Necca and Princess had a surprise visit during their celebration with gifts and special message for her. “Lagi niya po sinasabi before na wala siyang totoong kaibigan and sa MNL48 lang siya nakahanap ng true friend and we’re blessed po kasi kami ‘yun. Gusto lang naming malaman mo na proud kami sayo, we love you,” Necca to Cess.

Sela, on the other hand expressed her happiness on Alice being their overall Team Captain. “Nagpapasalamat kami kasi ikaw ‘yung naging captain ng MNL48 First Generation iba ‘yung pag handle mo ng stress and school. Proud kami sayo, mahal na mahal ka namin. I wish na lahat ng mga ambisyon mo sa buhay makamtan mo kasi napakabait mong tao.”

“Alam mo sobrang lungkot ko talaga kasi wala ka sa tabi ko. Para sakin ikaw ang pinaka-best captain sa lahat ng 48G,” Sheki emotionally said to Alice.

Furthermore, a special teaser surprised the fans as well as the members present at the Seitansai event where they had the first glimpse of MNL48’s upcoming 3rd Single, “365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel” and a short a cappella sample of the song.

Bigger turnout for Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie Handshake Event Day 2

03/17/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

Second day of the MNL48’s “Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie” Handshake Event did not disappoint as more fans joined the group at Centris Elements on March 17, 2019.

MNL48 fans, also called MNLoves, had another chance to interact and shake hands with their Oshi for as long as 10 seconds, and watch the idol group perform their hit tracks “Palusot Ko’y Maybe”, “First Rabbit”, “Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie”, and “Manila48”.

Grateful for all their fans’ support for their second Handshake Event, Quincy thanked the MNLoves. “To be the first batch of members to hold your hands, it’s been an honor. Gusto po naming magpasalamat sa lahat ng pumunta sa Handshake Event namin simula first day hanggang ngayong last day. On behalf of all the members of first generation, no matter what happens we will always be together. Maraming salamat po!”

Rans also agreed with Quincy and appreciated the fans lining up for each of the MNL48 member, “maraming salamat po sa lahat ng pumila sa amin, at suportahan niyo po kami sa Second General Election. Kita-kita po tayo sa next event,” she claimed.

An avid MNL48 fan shared her special and memorable interaction with each MNL48 member during the event. “With this one, since you get to handshake each of them individually, it gets more special po because you get to have this one on one interaction with your oshi. It’s very special,” Alex Arquiza shared, attending the group’s handshake event for the second time.

As the “Idols you can meet” concept is being established here in the Philippines, she also expressed how these handshake events have helped her create a friendship with her kami-oshi, Faith. “Yung pinaka-main reason why [siya ang kami-oshi ko is] because the bond that I have created with her over the past, kasi I regularly attend events when I can, pag palagi ko siya nakikita we always talk na in a way parang nagde-develop na siya ng friendship parang ganon po, except that it’s an idol and fan relationship. Naka-create na kami ng ganoong bond so walang point for me to just switch oshi, siya na talaga kami-oshi ko.”

03/05/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

Philippines’ idol group MNL48 will stage their first ever major concert on April 6, 2019 at the New Frontier Theater

During the press conference held today, March 6, 2019 at Movie Stars Café, MNL48 Sheki, Abby, Sela, Rans, Coleen, Brei, Belle, Gabb, Ella, Jan, Dian, Kay, Coleen, Jem, Lei, Mari, and Alyssa expressed their happiness that a lot of fans are eager to get the best seats in the theater to watch them perform in their biggest concert.

“To be honest, we are beyond grateful and happy dahil sa mga fans namin and excited to show other countries and Filipinos na ito ‘yung talentong Pilipino,” Dian said in the press conference.

img2.jpg

It was in the group’s official social media pages last February 1, that the “Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie” idols revealed that they will finally be holding their first concert since their breakthrough in 2018 which will be entitled “Living the Dream: The Concert”.

The show will also be the first idol concert in the country and thousands of fans are expected to join the JPOP-inspired concert to be directed by Direk GB Sampedro.

“Since this is their first major concert, expect them to do other things. They’ll be launching new number, new costume, and new songs; expect everyone to have fun. I find it exciting kasi iba siya sa ginagawa natin dito sa Pilipinas, para akong nag di-direct ng international concert,” Direk Sampedro explained how the concert will be different from the usual MNL48 events.

img3.jpg

The international sister group of Japan’s AKB48, who has been wowing fans not just in the Philippines but across Asia with their talent, music, and performances, will showcase their growth as an artist and group as they will perform their hit singles like “Aitakatta – Gustong Makita”, “Talulot Ng Sakura, “Pag-ibig Fortune Cookie” and more in an all-out production at a grander stage.

Moreover, the concert is MNL48 First Generation’s gift to their supportive fans, dubbed as MNLoves, who’s been with the group since day one.

MNL48 Center Girl Sheki expressed her happiness that their dreams are finally coming true. “Super excited po kaming lahat kasi dati pinapangarap lang po namin na makapag-conert in front of many people. Sobrang special po siya kasi buong First Generation po ang magpe-perform ng sama-sama with our MNLoves, kaya sobrang thankful po kami na magkakaroon kami ng ganitong event.”

Sheki further narrated how much preparations they are going through for the upcoming concert. “Ipapakita namin na may ibubuga ang MNL48 sa music and idol industry para rin makapag-leave kami ng mark sa araw na ‘yun na hinding-hindi nila makakalimutan.”

img4.jpg

Abby also explained how their performance in the recent AKB48 Group Asia Festival held in Bangkok helped them prepare in their upcoming concert. “Sobrang laki ng natulong sakin ‘nung concert sa Bangkok, sobrang daming ideas and lakas ng loob as an idol ‘yung nakuha ko doon, and mas na-inspire ako na makapagbigay saya sa ibang tao. Mas na-boost din po ‘yung confidence ko, na-realize ko na being an idol is about giving all your heart na walang takot na maipakita kung sino ka and malabas ‘yung best sayo.”

"Also, we did our best to perform in front of Thai people and other nationalities, what more pa this major concert namin na magpe-perform po kami in front of you," Jem added.

img5.jpg

Team Captain Alice said that they added more effort in their rehearsals because of MNL48’s Asia Festival experience. “Todo practice na po kami kasi gusto din po naming ma-meet ‘yung expectations ng mga manunuod sa amin pero dapat nage-enjoy pa rin po kami sa ginagawa namin.”

“And speaking of concert po, siyempre nakita po ng MNLoves ‘yung growth naming mga members. From scratch po na ginawa namin or nangyari noong It’s Showtime days, ito na po ‘yung idols na ine-expect niyo, para mapakita rin namin kung anong kaya pang i-offer ng MNL48,” Alice said.

“Sobrang privilege po samin na magkaroon ng concert at malaking opportunity po talaga ito para sa MNL48,” Abby concluded.

img6.jpg

Joining the members and Direk GB Sampedro during the press conference was MNL48’s Producer Mr. Paulo Kurosawa who strongly believes that the girls are ready for the much-awaited concert.

MNL48 is composed of 48 talented young girls, ages 15 to 20 years old lead by Senbatsu members (Top 16): Center girl Sheki, Abby, Sela, Brei, Belle, Rans, Coleen, Gabb, Jem, Lei, Mari, Jan, Kay, Alyssa, Faith, and Ella. The all-girl group first broke into the scene after being formed through a nationwide search televised on ABS-CBN’s noontime show “It’s Showtime”.

After their debut, MNL48 released their first single “Aitakatta – Gustong Makita” under Star Music which ranked on the No.1 spot on iTunes Top Albums upon its release and entered popular music charts like Myx Daily Top 10 Pinoy, Pop Charts PH, and Pinoy Myx Countdown.
