Redefining Power: What Makes An Alpha?

Alpha is a special breed of individuals who embody power–not in the traditional sense, but in a manner that can effectuate change in others.

Editor’s Note

As we step into February, it’s shocking to see how swiftly time has passed. It seems like just yesterday we were ushering in the new year, and now we’re already stepping into the second month. It’s a gentle reminder to savor every moment, to live fully and cherish the now.

This year marks an exhilarating new direction for Lifestyle Asia. We continue to evolve as we embrace the dynamic world of a webzine, and I look forward to announcing an exciting lineup of personalities who will grace our covers in the months to come. Each story is a window into a life of passion, dedication, and inspiration.

In addition, we’re channeling our creative energies into something truly special: four coffee table books focusing on Food, Travel, Homes, and Obsessions. These books are a celebration of the rich tapestry of the Philippines, showcasing the best of our vibrant culture, breathtaking landscapes, and culinary wonders, as well as a curated collection of the most coveted luxury items I can find. It’s a journey I’m incredibly excited to share with you, our dear readers.

And speaking of journeys, I’m both proud and overjoyed to introduce Ling Ling King as the first cover personality of Alpha. Ling Ling’s story is not just one of success; it’s a narrative of resilience, innovation, and the power of dreaming big. Her journey perfectly encapsulates the spirit of Alpha—one of leadership, creativity, and influence, merged with purpose and compassion.

As the digital platform of Lifestyle Asia, Alpha honors the oldest homegrown glossy magazine in the Philippines by featuring in its monthly cover stories, more exceptional individuals who are at the top of their game, while in pursuit of a meaningful life.

In essence, Alpha by Lifestyle Asia is redefining power. This is evident through Ling Ling, who exudes authority through authenticity, and power through lovingkindness.

As we move forward into the year, let’s embrace the new and the familiar with equal enthusiasm. Let’s continue to explore, learn, and grow together. Here’s to a year of unforgettable stories, shared experiences, and the endless beauty of the Philippines.

With excitement and anticipation,

Candy Dizon
