Romanian National Day

The approximately 100+ strong Romanian community in Singapore celebrated its national day on Wednesday, 30th November – the actual day falls on the 1st of December. There was a severe error in logistics this year and the embassy failed to send out invitations – my prospective Romanian godmother, Carmen thinks the embassy was trying to cut costs by doing this. We can only speculate at this point.

It was held at the Shangri-La hotel off Orchard Road, and unlike the previous year, they served wine imported from Romania. The taste was, how shall I say, exquisite. I went there expecting that they’d serve finger foods and all, but no, there was so much good food present (especially the “Romanian flavoured meatballs” *snigger*) that I ate till I could eat no more.

And it looks like a fantastic time was had by all.
