After two years of lockdown this event was a much welcomed occasion for a big reunion and celebration. The people present were from all stages of Nanette’s life, and together could paint a picture of her story: friends from their time in Hong Kong, Cathay Pacific friends from where she used to work as a flight attendant in Hong Kong, Filipina girlfriends from Zürich with their Swiss husbands, Pinay-French connection with their husbands, and friends and relatives from all over the world.

The birthday wasn’t the only occasion of the day, Nanette and her husband, Michel, were also celebrating their 41st wedding anniversary.

Special thanks go to her daughters Gabriela and Sandra for organizing a surprise video from friends around the globe and Hi Society with husband Dr. George Sarakinis and friend Cocoy Cordoba, surely made her day even more special and touching. Dancing followed at the Peak Bar.

Nanette is so grateful and happy to all who celebrated with this special occasion with her. She is truly blessed to have friends around her. To Nanette more celebrations to come!
