MANILA -- Only days after she turned 18, Julia Montes returned to work by flaunting her sexy figure as an endorser of a weight-loss procedure.

"Super nae-excite din ako, kasi after that big event sa buhay ko, ito, back to work na, at talaga namang ito ang gusto ko. Kaya happy, happy," she told ABS-CBN News on Thursday.

Montes, who celebrated her debut last Tuesday, gamely posed for the cameras during a pictorial for her latest endorsement deal with a local beauty clinic chain.

"Ang ine-endorse natin dito ay ang weight loss talaga. Nakita niyo naman ako noong tumaba ako nang bonggang-bongga, so in a way talaga nakatulong talaga sakin 'to," she said.

She admitted that her recent weight gain has been an issue, considering her frame. "Siyempre ako, matangkad ako, malaking bulas tapos kapag sa screen, additional ten pounds, so iba talaga 'yun, lalo na nung tumaba talaga ako last time."

Although she has managed to slim down, Montes said she has yet to feel comfortable wearing revealing swimsuits during trips to the beach.

Meanwhile, the "Walang Hanggan" star expressed joy over her recent debut, which gathered her close friends, family and colleagues in one occasion.

"Super happy. Actually mahirap i-express kung gaano ako kasaya noong gabing iyon," she said.
Parts of Montes' 18th birthday celebration will be aired in a special episode of the entertainment talk show "The Buzz" on Sunday.
