MANILA, Philippines - Lifestyle Asia presents some of the stellar young people poised to leave a mark soon enough. The 17 men and women include a scientist, a race car driver, writer, an imminent barrister, future diplomat, businessmen, artists, young professionals, university students. Besides pursuing life passions, they aspire to make a contribution to the improvement of lives.

Big dreams are also coming true for Robbie Antonio, who helms Century Properties. The  newest project of the real estate developer brings Italian fashion house Versace to Manila in a collaboration that sets a new standard for luxury living. While Robbie has had time to work out the plan for this partnership, former Meralco CEO Manolo Lopez had no inkling that his life course would take a new direction as the country’s ambassador to Japan. The accomplished businessman talks about the rumor on his appointment and the assignment he now faces.  

The February travel destination features the exciting, stimulating city of Sevilla, with its historic locations and cultural delights. Old World charms are also among the qualities of the Papadopoli Venezia, the premium hotel in Venice beside the Tolentini Canal .

Latest trends from noted Filipino designers  and inspired pieces from the finalists of the Guild of Philippine Jewellers, Inc. competition are spread in the pages of the fashion and jewelry sections.

Two big occasions this month inspire gastronomic celebrations. The Chinese Spring Festival rolls in the Year of the Rabbit with a unique plated course meal at the Edsa Shangri-La’s Summer Palace. A special Lifestyle Asia dinner prepared in the hotel’s premium Chinese dining outlet sends Buddha jumping over the wall. Valentine fever runs high at L’Incontro with a menu created particularly for a romantic interlude.

The February issue of Lifestyle Asia is now available in bookstores and magazine stands.
