Aimed towards the condo dwellers that enjoy living the good life, CondoLiving magazine presented these lifestyle and home design elements into a one-of-a-kind event. “Living in a condo goes beyond the four corners of a unit. It’s all about the the person living in it and his lifestyle. CondoLiving magazine believes in the same principle, and we are highlighting this in our pages,” shares Maite Tamparong-Uy, One Mega Group Home and Design Publisher.

TYRA MAIL: MEGA 22nd Anniversary

Making Mega with Tyra DSC_9462

Cheers to 22 years and more in fashion!

At the start of a Mega year 2014, an appealing advertisement roamed around social media about “Global Domination” and an international Supermodel who will cover the February Issue. Honestly,  I was thrilled as much as i am excited (again) what Mega Magazine is cooking for us fashion movers.  And it was confirmed and officiated when Mega EIC Sari Yap  posted glimpse of the shoot with Tyra Banks as the Cover for their 22nd Anniversary Issue!

If ever there was a moment when I actually thought that maybe Tyra would be flying in the Philippines for that, I would totally turn on my fan mode button, I dont care, like its TYRA. But due to the ongoing taping of the latest cycle of America’s Next Top Model , I doubt.  But having TYRA as Mega Magazine’s Cover for February Anniversary issue is something I can be very proud of.

The whole mood was for movement and the whole direction is nothing but to go GLOBAL. Philippine Fashion is taking a whole great leap to forward, not only Tyra Banks graced the covers of Mega Magazine, there is also Sarah Jessica Parker.

MAKING MEGA: September’s Biggest Fashion Party

MakingMega DSC_0531 fashionAtetheLawyer

Fashion documentaries, like fashion itself, are aspirational. They will let you know what’s happening behind every detail of the pages of the magazine, the people inside it, the stories and ups and downs that is still fashionable.
I really love watching Fashion documentaries; it gives the viewer a pass to view in general what they are working for and how they are putting every effort in a full beautiful page. It’s about passion, dream and success in fashion.

In the Philippines, (adding to the many firsts of MEGA) a Fashion documentary of the issue cleverly titled #MakingMEGA – Anne Curtis in South America, a 45-minute video of the story and creation of a record-breaking magazine masterpiece directed by One Mega Group’s TV100 Head Michael Carandang. In the documentary, Anne Curtis and the editorial team traveled to the colorful South America in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and in Machu Picchu, Peru.

I remember what Sari Yap, Mega EIC, “..more than anything in Making Mega, aside from producing beautiful pictures, was getting to know “beautiful” people.” It is indeed what this industry offers, beautiful not just physically but in every aspect of being beautiful, and it has to be the drive, the passion and the heart to really show its true beauty.

Host of the night G Töngi brought out her ever-dazzling energy, welcomed the fashionable crowd, and then called up on stage the MEGA team behind the historical 406-page fashion glossy.

The night would never be complete without honoring the girl on the cover of the biggest fashion magazine in the country.

Mega Magazine Editor-in-Chief Sari Yap made sure to give a more than worthy introduction for Anne Curtis to come up on stage and say a few words and share some of her experiences from the one-of-a-kind ‘Making MEGA’ trip.

Free-flowing Bavaria beer led the beautiful crowd to party all night with Brazilian injected house music to accompany everyone’s will to dance. Definitely another Mega history in the making. #MakingMEGA
