Favorite Haunts of the Jet Set

Philippine Tatler Traveller upholds its reputation for featuring the favorite posh haunts of the jet set. Going strong on its ninth volume,“The Art of Luxury Travel” glossy is infused with the creative genius of its managing director Irene Martel Francisco and editor Mia Borromeo.  Raffles and Fairmont Makati with its managing director David Batchelor and its director of communications Monique Toda, hosted the exclusive preview of Philippine Tatler Traveller in partnership with Citibank, represented by its country manager, Aftab Ahmed. They toasted to the travel holiday handbook of international travel hotspots.

The latest issue features cover lady Monica Urquijo on location in Cartagena, Colombia; the Holy Land Petra, Israel is captivatingly featured and the adventures of Ana Delgado, Curtis Chin, Bak Licauco, and Bobbi Brown are presented in a dazzling array of images and accounts as they share their exhilarating experiences. Avid travelers expect nothing but the highest level of service and high standards, and the Philippine Tatler Traveller succeeds in presenting the art of luxury travel at its best.

Executive chef  Wade James prepared a splendid South American cuisine fused with Middle Eastern, more particularly Arabic influences and cooked with top-notch authentic ingredients. The lamb was profoundly tender accompanied with condiments on a tiny pita.  Overflowing bubbly added to the fun at this chic magazine launch. DJ Cocoy Puyat provided the soundtrack in step with the Traveller cues spinning Latin and pop beats.

The impressive diverse A-listers were treated to global brands and services featured in the magazine through stylishly curated vignettes and donated raffle prizes.  The grand prize was a round-trip ticket on Business Class to any destination that Turkish Airlines flies to, in its reach of more 108 cities in Europe. Turkish airlines general manager Ehran Balaban was on hand to draw the raffle.
