Even if waking up before 10 on a Sunday morning like a crazy idea for the Shanghainese night owls, 15 alumni managed to get out of the bed to join us for an early Swiss Brunch at Abbey Road. It is not the first time that the Alumni from HEC Lausanne meet at Abbey Road, for the reason that they serve some of the most delicious Swiss and European food in Shanghai in a cozy atmosphere. The mouthwatering brunch served this Sunday morning brought back our former students to the heart of the Swiss Alps and reminded them of the charming years they had in our university. Everybody was happy to share these beautiful memories around the table with the other alumni.
Before leaving with a smile on their face and a full belly, everybody agreed that they have been absolutely delighted by the Swiss Brunch and it was completely worth getting up early on a Sunday morning. It showed us that some delicious Bircher muesli and conviviality can transform a night owl into a singing early bird.
