Unforgettable Boholana Beauties


This photo was taken during the debut celebration of Kneesa Yu, only daughter of Engr. Nelson Yu & Engr. Necie Pepito- Yap held at the Sandugo Ballroom of Bohol Tropics Resort, Tagbilaran City, December 19, 2010

These ladies were classmates and batchmates from DWCT High School Class of 1980 and BFF's since then

All of them have been turning 50 years old one after the other since last year

Seeing how gorgeous they look , the more I am convinced that 50 is the new 40

The last time I hosted an event for them was last February 25, 2013 for the Golden Birthday Bash of Ate Necie "Oua' Yu

Here's the link for the party:
