Trip to China
Xiè xiè nín – which means “thank you” in Chinese – was the motto of our trip to the Middle Kingdom. We invited our Chinese clients in Shanghai to a gala dinner. The Hotel Waldorf Astoria on the Bund, where our two events were held, provided the appropriate setting. Moderator Degemaya – a media star in China – accompanied us through the evening, and both we and our guests were enchanted by her charming presentation.
The accounts of the long and successful history of our family firm met with great interest. As did also the diamond drinks reception – where two champagne glasses each contained a real diamond worth over CHF 3,500. The winners were understandably ecstatic. Besides the official part of our visit, we also went on various excursions and were captivated by the exoticism of this vast country. We returned home with a host of fascinating impressions and experiences, which will stay with us for a long time to come. In the end, we came to realise that thanks to the friendly reception by our clients, it was us who were in fact the guests.
