We Kicked Off Our Digital Edition Launch at the Newest Nightspot in the City

This year, after 21 years of publishing and having one foot skimming the digital world’s surface, Zee Lifestyle magazine—noted as Cebu’s premier lifestyle bible—decided to take the plunge head-first.

Last December 14th, all roads led to Busay for Zee’s Digital Edition Launch Party. Aptly called the Party Summit, it was held at the newest spot in the city, La Vie in the Sky. In the day, it’s a charming four-storey house with tall glass windows that allow the sunlight to filter in and illuminate its quirky yet elegant interiors. At night, the atmosphere completely changes—the crystal chandeliers are dimmed to make the mood more intimate, and the city’s skyline looks bright and dreamy from the restaurant’s balcony.

This year, after 21 years of publishing and having one foot skimming the digital world’s surface, Zee Lifestyle magazine—noted as Cebu’s premier lifestyle bible—decided to take the plunge head-first. Its flagship magazine still remains, except in digital format, and co-exists with its dynamic website featuring Cebu lifestyle, zee.ph, and its tourism website, visitcebu.ph, and dabbles in creative executions through its social media platforms.

At the Party Summit, Cebu’s most influential personalities arrived dressed to the nines and wrapped in warmer clothing to combat the location’s temperature which can drop to as low as 18 degrees Celsius during the months of December and January.

Champagne and wine were free-flowing along with canapés and wood-fired pizza, and guests enjoyed the unlimited French-style gelato. To further liven up the night, French producer Romea played music that had the guests swaying to the beat.

Since Zee’s first digital issue in August of this year, three issues have been produced. The first issue features Duke and Christina Frasco on the cover, the dynamic couple who serves as the new faces of Cebu politics; the second issue features Carlo Cordaro and his daughter Camilla at Asmara Urban Resort and Lifestyle Village, an oasis nestled in the bustling Banilad area; and the latest issue has Michel Lhuillier and Louis Thevenin at their newest venture, La Vie in the Sky, which boasts luxury and a spectacular view of Cebu City.

Much like its printed counterpart, the digital edition retains the same blueprint: Cebu’s trends and news, timely articles such as the ongoing traffic problem of the city as it evolves, Mactan International Airport’s Terminal 2, lists of Cebu’s top 5 (from designers to cocktails to artists), a glimpse into Cebu’s grandest homes, and backstage passes to the biggest events in the city.

Since going digital, we’ve found more creative ways to tell Cebu’s stories. We’re looking forward to what awaits us in 2019, and we hope you are too.
