So what does our much-improved website mean for our loyal readers? We break down the reasons you should check us more often—that is, if you haven’t set your homepage to us just yet.
Familiar look, better features
The Zee Lifestyle website retains the easy-to-navigate interface that frequent visitors recognize and new guests won’t find completely overwhelming. It does pack a few punches here and there in terms of features. Our homepage is now comprised of the most recent articles from various sections such as People, Travel, Shopping and Dining, giving visitors a preview of everything we have to offer. The navigation menu is more streamlined so you can find articles of your interest. Additionally, the updated font family makes reading our articles easy on the eyes.
A more dynamic sidebar
You’re going to wind up lingering in our website a little bit longer. Besides highlighting our most recent issue, the new sidebar contains links to our most popular articles, to our most recently published content, as well as to posts that you might like. We retain the mini-gallery of our Instagram posts so you can see what the team is currently up to, and a new search box makes searching for particular articles easier.
Updates straight to your e-mail
As of press time, our talented web developer Patrick Tsesemeli and online editor Michael Sanchez are currently working on perfecting the newsletter. Sign up, and you get website updates straight to your e-mail address, as well as information on our popular giveaways and other exciting promos (The Ultimate Travel Deals, anyone?).

Careless’ WAVY BABY Takes Over Sinulog
Careless’ first ever music festival, Wavy Baby, is bound to make the return of Sinulog one for the books.
Wavy Baby is a two-day music festival happening on January 13-14, 2023 at the North Reclamation Area in Mandaue City, Cebu with a lineup of over 20 artists recognized both locally and internationally.
Wavy Baby will feature international performers Pink Sweat$, Bambam, Sunmi, The Rose, Bag Raiders, Manila Grey, and Yultron. All artists signed under Careless namely, James Reid, Massiah, Jolianne, Lesha, August Wahh, Issa, SOS, Destiny Rogers, and A-Team will also be performing. Other Filipino acts include Ben & Ben, December Avenue, Urbandub, Franco, Denise Julia, and more. The festival will also feature local Cebuano acts such as Cookie$, The Sundown, Mandaue Nights, Three Legged Men, and Wonggoys.
Careless’ CEO, Jeffrey Oh, says “We’re really excited to do Wavy Baby in Sinulog because it’s the biggest and most historic festival in the Philippines. We want to build a festival that brings the best of the Philippines and the world together to meet and celebrate life and culture, which is what Sinulog is all about. We call it Wavy Baby because we want a wavy lifestyle and a wavy mindset. It also pays homage to Sinulog because the Sinulog symbols are water and the baby Jesus so it’s also a nod to that as well. We’re excited to be part of the Cebu family and build something special that hopefully we can repeat year after year.”
The festival itself will be held at the North Reclamation Area in Mandaue City, Cebu. There will be an Artist Lounge, VVIP Lounge, a VIP Area in front of the stage, Cocktail Pods, Sponsor’s Hives, and Market Pod.
The Cocktail Pod serves as an area for anyone to purchase drinks at the venue while the Market Pod is designated for food and other merchandise that will be sold. The Sponsor’s Hive will be where Wavy Baby’s brand partners will have different booths that festival goers can visit.
Regular Tickets are priced at Php 8,510 for VIP and Php 4,260 for General Admission. One-day Passes are also now available at Php 5,540 for VIP and Php 2770 for General Admission.
