Guest editor Melo Esguerra returns for his third Style issue, featuring real estate maven Beverly Dayanan. As the CEO of the young and homegrown real estate company Contempo Property Holdings Inc., Beverly talks about being a woman and staying on top of the game in a male-dominated industry.

Show off your sense of style at the most fashion-forward places in Cebu, where the décors are just as stylish as the people: General in Ayala Center Cebu, The Henry Hotel, Joan & Klaire at the BTC, Mismukuno Teppanyaki, No. 9 Restaurant, Politics Café + Public House, and the newly-renovated Restaurant Aziza.

Meet the driving forces behind the style industry: Lacoste’s creative manager Felipe Oliveira Baptista, Filipino-American digital innovator Brian Aznar, who is Condé Nast’s director of technology for Style.com and Women’s Wear Daily; and Renée Patron, the visionary behind Banago, a collection of bags and home accessories hand-woven from banig. Banago’s pieces have made it to the pages of Elle Japan, Travel & Leisure, and Vogue.

Zee’s Pick for the Week

Tickle Your Palate with Father’s Eggs

ZEE picks an interesting dessert for our reader’s sweet passions.  Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach created a dessert specialty that will tickle both your palate and naughty thoughts.

Pastry Chef Gerard Apurado presented a unique treat for this year’s Father’s Day, it is called Father’s Eggs.  However, Father’s Eggs received highly positive feedback from their clientele and from food critics.  And the people could not stop ordering them; so why not make everyday a Father’s Day?

Father’s Eggs are delicately crafted custard inside an eggshell; plus, it comes in six different flavors:  coffee, pandan, strawberry, ube, plain custard, and mango.  However, each flavor is given a playful name by Chef Apurado.  The amazing part is that every flavor is so distinct and crave-worthy.  Chef Apurado is keeping the recipe a secret; but everyone can order Father’s Eggs at the Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach Facebook page.
