Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Members of the social set flocked to Manila House Private Club’s Intramuros Ballroom to honor notable Filipino personalities who inspired and sparked change in the lives of many.

“Through the concept of sustainable luxury, Lifestyle Asia kickstarts the year with an event that recognizes key personalities in Philippine society who, in their own way, have made an effort to make the world a better place.” LA Editor-in-Chief Dong Ronquillo said.
