Karla Estrada turned sentimental as she marked her 30th anniversary in the entertainment industry.

On Instagram on Wednesday, December 16, the TV host-singer shared a photo of herself when she was just 16 years old, as she expressed her disbelief as to how time goes by so fast. 

"16 years old since I started my career in showbiz... Wow! It's been 30 years now? Grabe! Hindi ko namalayan sa sobrang dami ng nangyari! Bilang lang ang malungkot, hindi mabilang ang saya, kaya nga 'di ko namalayan na naka-tatlong dekada na pala ako," she said in the caption.

She then expressed how grateful she is that even after 30 years in the limelight, she remains relevant in showbiz. 

"30 years na kaming magkaagapay ng industriyang ito! Salamat sa lahat ng entablado, sinehan at telebisyon dahil diyan naitaguyod ko ang buhay at pamilya ko. Hindi ko man dinanas ang kasikatan, masayang masaya narin ako sa nakamit kong tagumpay sa mundo ng showbiz na tanging pangarap kong pasukin simula noong bata pa ako!" she said.

"Magpahanggang ngayon ay nandito pa rin ako at katuwang ko na ang aking mga anak. Bongga! At hangga't gusto niyo pa ako ay patuloy tayong magsasama nang masaya lang. MARAMING SALAMAT PANGINOON SA PAGKAKATAON," she continued, before adding the hasthag #mybreadandbutter.

As a child, Karla aspired to become an actress and joined many singing competitions.

She was eventually discovered by talent manager and entertainment writer Nap Gutierrez in a music hub in Quezon City, which led to her appearance in the variety show "That’s Entertainment."

"Sinabi niya sa akin kung gusto mong mag-artista. Sagot ko, 'Opo,'" recalled Karla, who auditioned for the show back in 1990.

"Noong araw nung audition, nagkaroon ako ng chicken pox, so umiyak kami ni Do ng mga tatlong balde. Sabi ko ano kaya ang reason bakit ako nagkasakit eh ito na 'yon. So tinawagan namin, sinabi hindi makakapunta kasi may sakit. Sabi ni Tito Nap, tawagan niyo ako kapag magaling na siya. Si Tito Nap, in fairness naniniwala siya sa akin. Naalala ko noon kumanta ako ng 'Better Days' after that sabi ni Tito Germs (German Moreno) o sige Wednesday Group ka na,'" she shared.

Since then, Karla has starred in a couple of television and film projects, including the 1999 series "Saan Ka Man Naroroon" and the 2013 drama "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw," as well as the 1993 film "Maricris Sioson: Japayuki," and more recently, the 2017 movie "Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad."
