Millionaireasia Magazine , November -December 2011

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we roll out the words ‘style and substance’ to you? When planning this issue with that particular theme in mind, it naturally occurred to us to interview star personalities from various fields who embody those traits. Take the illustrious Kiki Ganie for instance. Who better to grace this issue’s cover than the man who has successfully solved a mind-boggling puzzle that involved big numbers? We’re referring to US$7 billion, to be exact.

Talking about style and substance doesn’t take us too far away from one of today’s most overused phrases–work and play. Ask any successful person out there (yourself included), and chances are, he’ll tell you that one of the keys to success is to simply have a balance of both–which is why we’ve gone the extra mile to bring you not only features on established professionals in this issue, but also ideas for your next getaway (why not extend that business trip, if you can afford a few days of kicking back in the lap of luxury at a stunning eco resort or a rooftop bar with a view that’s out of this world?), next dining venue, next ride to add to your shiny lineup in the yard, next watch to sport on your wrist and next gadgets to flaunt at your next big meeting or trip.

While you’re at it, you’d want to look the part too. Whether you decide to go for a classic made-tomeasure coat for an important rendezvous or a slouchy top and distressed jeans for a drink (or two…or more) with your buddies at an exotic holiday destination, check out our features and fashion pages for inspiration and an update of what you can find in stores now (yes, including that cool scarf you’ve been eyeing on!).

As you flip through the pages of this issue, don’t be surprised to find the little changes we’ve made to please your eyes. Think of this subtle upgrade as our way of showing you our most sincere appreciation for sticking with us and inspiring us to perform beyond expectations day after day, and issue after issue, even as we pass our fourth year of existence in Indonesia. We hope you’ll enjoy this edition all the way to our closing thoughts on prominent French designer, Philippe Starck, where he shares his perspective on creativity and the ideology behind his cutting-edge designs.

Till the next one, here’s to living life to the fullest!
