HSBC Philippines welcomed the Year of the Rabbit with a grand celebration of hope, prosperity and boundless possibilities. Transported back to the charm of 1930s Shanghai, where East and West created beautiful harmony, an evening of 'Luxe' surprised guests and partners who savored a truly special Lunar New Year celebration.
Held at Shangri-La the Fort, guests were welcomed with Lychee Gin and Tonic, symbolizing love, beauty and well-being. The grand ballroom made for a completely experiential event, dubbed 'The Celestial Club' for the evening, where the host presented a rich repertoire courtesy of a live 25-piece orchestra conducted by Rodel Colmenar, the voices of the award-winning Baihana and no less than Asia's Nightingale Lani Misalucha for the finale.
HSBC Philippines President and CEO, Sandeep Uppal, shared at the start of the celebration, “We are very pleased to welcome the Lunar New Year through a face-to-face celebration with our distinguished guests and customers. The sign of the Rabbit is said to be a symbol of longevity, peace as well as prosperity, and we thus approach the new year with a sense of hope.
“As one of the leading universal banks in the country, we at HSBC look forward to continuing nurturing our relationship with our customers and remain their banking partner of choice through their life's journey.”
Guests enjoyed a four-course curated Chinese-French fusion menu, a culinary experience that brought the East meets West theme to the palate, developed by Shangri-La the Fort's chef duo, Wang Wei Qing and Joris Rycken.
