A huge turnout and great night for DABS when the 25th anniversary was celebrated at Sentosa. 265 members and friends of DABS and the Danish Community celebrated the 25 year anniversary party in style at Amara Sanctuary Resort at Sentosa. It was the largest turnout in the history of the association and all really had a ball, so to speak.
"Spot-on in the Cricket Club" - Luncheon with the former Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Uffe Ellemann-Jensen.
Around 100 members and friends of DABS showed up in Singapore Cricket Club for DABS' 25th anniversary luncheon with Uffe Elleman-Jensen as guest speaker. In a fine and well-received address, the former Danish minister of Foreign Affairs took a broader view of the world in the past 25 years and showed that he still is a keen and sharp observer of what's going on around the globe. Answering a question about who would be the coming president of the EU he said with usual flick in the eye: "Well Tony Blair is the best qualified - so it will definitely not be him. It will probably be a completely unknown Dutchman". As it turned out a week later he was close to spot-on when Herman van Rompuy from the Flemish-speaking Belgian diaspora got the EU top-job.
