A celebration of life

Grand Hyatt Manila executive chef Mark Hagan, your columnist and Grand Hyatt Manila general manager and area vice president Gottfried Bogensperger
I have had my fair share of challenges in the past two years, just as everyone in the world has. But one thing that never fails to make my life sweeter is my connection with family and friends, who never fail to make me feel special year to year, and 2021 is no exception — despite the hurdles we are all facing.
My lovely friends from the social and business sectors feted me with a belated birthday celebration at The Peak’s Speakeasy in Grand Hyatt Manila, Bonifacio Global City. Everyone ensured safety as we all underwent antigen tests before entering the venue, and everyone had a wonderful time catching up and seeing each other again after so long. We all missed the delectable cuisine and refreshing drinks prepared by The Peak’s skilled team of chefs, and it was an unforgettable celebration of life and all its blessings.
Thank you to my wonderful friends for an exceptional evening of laughter and friendship!
