At the center of Cebu, a magazine with a new voice and refined storytelling emerges, forging a fresh point of view based on creativity and curiosity
Honest, inspiring and free. Cebu Living is a quarterly magazine under Hinge Inquirer Publications that talks about the urban narrative of Cebu. Whether it’s a beautiful fashion editorial with the most glamorous labels or a simple recipe to warm the heart, the magazine discusses the way of life from the perspective of Cebuanos, with the help of columnists well-versed in the nuances of the community. Cebu Living highlights people of substance: captains of industry, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, game changers – people who are shaping the future of Cebu today.
The first issue comes with a beautiful cover shot in a discreet location, with a personality who represents Cebu’s artistry and craftsmanship. Young and fresh-faced, columnist Kym Maithland-Smith talks about beauty, while foodie Jude Bacalso shares his new culinary discoveries. Inside are a well-curated collection of stories: insights on art, culture and a conversation with an artist seek to enrich the soul, a striking fashion editorial that defines the contemporary way of dressing, and pages about exclusive parties and events that open the doors to luxury and elusive personalities. There’s always something new to discover in this part of town, along with old, familiar traditions to revisit. New restaurants born from generations of family recipes–whether it’s an unexpected mélange of chocolate concoctions or a different take on the all-time favorite lechon–Cebu will always innovate and surprise.
Editors, influencers and the team behind the magazine will be flying to Cebu, via Air Asia and accommodated by SM Seaside City, to attend the launch on Sept. 11 at Tavolata Restaurant, Banilad, Mandaue. Good food, sparkling drinks and music will accompany the lavish celebration, with floral arrangement by Pink Flora. The event will be hosted by lifestyle columnist Tessa-Prieto Valdes.
Cebu Living is available via subscription and is delivered straight to the doorsteps of homes, cafes, and malls. It hopes to portray with honesty the Cebuano way of life, and the way Cebuanos hope to live. Follow Cebu Living at facebook.com/cebulivingph, Instagram and Twitter at @cebulivingph.
