Sofia Hontanosas Inting @ 18

It was exactly how the celebrant wanted her 18th birthday bash to be celebrated. A low- key and intimate thanksgiving dinner with family and friends yet retaining some of the frills & trimmings of a debut party of course. 
Sofia makes a wish and expresses her gratitude to everyone

Taking the spotlight a week ago was the charming Sofia Hontanosas Inting, the second of three kids of businessman Rey Ramon S. Inting & vivacious Sharon H. Inting.

The celebrant beams with pride & joy
Sofia, a Grade 11 senior high student  from BWS initially wanted to forego a celebration and instead go for an overseas holiday trip with family to celebrate but at the last minute, she was convinced by close friends and peers to celebrate with an 18th birthday party. After all, turning 18 is a milestone in a girl’s life.
A wacky moment to treasure forever
Her friends and family practically did all the last- minute preparations and seeing the joy and the incessant chatter and banter among the young guests was more than enough to give her special day a thumbs up.  
Dr. Pura S. Inting, Judge Nonoy & Esmie Hontanosas
Seen at the celebration were Sofia’s grandparents, Dr. Pura S. Inting, the grand dame of Tagbilaran Community Hospital and Judge Nonoy & Mrs. Esmie Hontanosas. It was so heartwarming to see and reconnect once again with the Inting and Hontanosas families and their friends.
