Travel on my mind » Manila Bulletin Lifestyle

There are several reasons we travel—to discover new landscapes, to quench our passion for history and the arts, and for the allure of earthly wonders. For the longest time, Tatler Traveller, with its contemporary and modern edge, has become a dependable and stimulating resource for travel.

Philippine Tatler Traveller’s Art of Luxury Travel recently launched its latest volume in a luxe cocktail party held at the Raffles Makati Ballroom. Like-minded travelers widely admire Philippine Tatler managing director Irene Martel Francisco and Tatler Traveller editor Mia Borromeo and their steadfast commitment to creativity and perfection. This has made Tatler Traveller a leading travel magazine. Raffles Makati’s managing director David Batchelor and director of communications, Monique Toda greeted and mingled with the guests.

The thirst for meaningful content has gotten the best of readers. This latest cover, which features Rissa Trillo dressed in a fiery blue attire, was shot in Tokyo. The city brings back fond memories of several Christmas holidays we spent with daughter Liezl and her family when they were residing in Tokyo. They have since relocated to New York’s Long Island.

The evening’s culinary delights were prepared by executive chef Richard Glaze. Various gourmet food stations with an international menu decked the Raffles ballroom. As in all Tatler events, free flowing champagne and wine were de rigueur. Another of their formula for success—their raffle portion was implemented. The A-listers were amazed at the raffle of over 30 prizes, which included Philippine Airlines business class tickets to Hong Kong. Excitement built up, and just when the guests thought it was over, there yet was another grand prize, by Turkish Airlines. Art collector Jose Mari Trenas wore a wide grin as he went onstage to claim the grand prize of a business class ticket to Europe via Turkish Airlines.; Facebook/tinahidalgojacinto
