letter from the editor

We accept change as inevitable, but the story doesn’t end there. What role did we play to incite change? No society has ever remained the same. Societies evolve, institutions change, and the same can be said about industries and the human race as a whole. Change is something we should fully understand and not take for granted. We can all be an agent of positive change. While we accept that change is constant, we should yearn to be part of it and in turn, influence others to do the same. Our collective power to influence change is a role that we all have to play. Doing so evokes a particular power to create and transform almost everything in this world according to our needs. So what change do we want to see…

Luigi Meer and Daisy Castelar met because of their particularly insistent friends. “Common friends had already been trying to set us up in the past! We both agreed, eventually,” shares Daisy. They agreed to meet for a midweek date but before the actual date bumped into each other and were introduced by their friends. “So our blind date, which still took place, became a “pseudo” blind date the following Wednesday,” says Daisy. Together for one and a half years, Luigi proposed after a Korean meal. “We went back to his place, and all of a sudden he proposed while I was mid-kwento. Pretty random proposal. He claims it was “calculated,” says the bride. The ring was used from a stone Luigi had sourced from Daisy’s jewelry business. “He had one of…

Miren Jarque was sitting on a pontoon by a neighborhood lake after a habitual weekend bike ride within the periphery of Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, when Jamie Endelman, whom she had earlier met through mutual friends in Manila, proposed—after 10 years of being together. Soon, the preparations began. The couple agreed their wedding to be in Cebu, Miren’s hometown, which Jamie learned to love after several visits and holidays. Understated simplicity was their desired battlecry—from the invitations to the bridal gown to the reception. Dear family members and close friends the world over were immediately requested to adjust their travel plans, as the couple earnestly wanted them to be witnesses to the celebrations. Eldest sister Cebu-based Isabel Velasco filled perfectly into the shoes of what was needed to coordinate. And together with mom…

the gift of beauty

Even before we could wrap our heads around the exceptionally busy, unbelievably hectic month that is December, the holiday season rears it’s glittery head and makes itself known. It is just in time, of course, which is something we need to remind ourselves every day. Funnily, this yuletide shock happens to us pretty much every year, as we attempt to prepare for the resplendent season of gift-giving and merry-making. Hello Christmas! Now, apart from decorating our homes and getting it ready for our first dinner party, the act of gift-buying seems to be the task that is most daunting and time-consuming. I mean, if you think about it, selecting the perfect present for one person can be stressful on its own. Add a long list of loved ones and friends to…
