Dinner with flair & elegance
- Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - May 25, 2014 - 12:00am

A dinner fit for kings was hosted in honor of Austrian Ambassador Josef Müllner and his lovely wife Kai Wang by Johann Strauss Society of the Philippines (JSSP) chairman and Monaco Consul General Fortune Ledesma and yours truly at Mandarin Oriental Manila’s signature restaurant, The Tivoli.

The elegant restaurant — best known for its contemporary and innovative European menu, impeccable staff service and luxurious ambiance — made the occasion a truly memorable evening for the guests and hosts alike. 

Seen sharing in the merriment of the evening were Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario, retired Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban, JSSP president Olga Martel, Cultural Center of the Philippines president Raul Sunico, McDonald’s Philippines founder and chairman George Yang, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts director for business development Helmut Gaisberger and Susie Madrigal-Bayot.

Many thanks to Mandarin Oriental  Manila general manager Torsten van Dullemen, hotel manager Oliver Kreuzer and communications director Charisse Chuidian for all the attention that spelled the difference between a good and great dinner party.

Cheers to all!
