In the early evening of May 14, 2016, members and guests of the Philippines Norway Business Council (PNBC) gathered at the Blackbird restaurant in Nielson Tower, Makati Avenue to celebrate the Norwegian National Day.
Everyone was greeted at the door by PNBC President Ivar Thomasli and his lovely wife, Ann Karin Thomasli.
The welcome cocktails started at the reception area and continued at the foyer, where the members and guests were treated to soul music performed by local songbird Suy Galvez.
The occasion was graced by the presence of H.E. Ambassador Erik Forner of the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Manila.
At the seven long tables adorned with flowers and small Norwegian colors, the members and guests enjoyed the captivatingly delectable four-course dinner delicately prepared by the chefs of Blackbird. The cool lighting and high-end ambiance accented the perfect gustatory sensation as the dinner celebration went on. The night was capped with dancing as the guests trooped back to the foyer and the band played nostalgic danceable tunes from yesteryears.
What a great way to celebrate Norway’s Constitution Day!
