In Bangkok, more than 200 members and friends of the Danish-Thai Chamber of Commerce attended this festive occasion on the Danish Ambassador’s private residential premises, which had been transformed into a lovely party venue with white tents and Christmas decorations that all together helped provide an early Christmas spirit on this last day of November.
Once again, Jyske Bank and PANDORA were the main sponsors supporting the event. To maintain the reputation as the “most Danish” Christmas Lunch outside Denmark, the right combination of Danish Christmas dishes and Snaps is crucial.
The notable line up of tasty Christmas food was provided by Stable Lodge – one of the few Danish restaurants in Bangkok. Afterwards, the traditional dessert “Ris á la Mande” (rice pudding topped with cherry sauce) was served with a surprise gift for whoever found a whole almond in his/her portion. Carlsberg was the kind sponsor of the prize (mandelgave).
Besides the free flow of snaps, guests enjoyed a free flow of Carlsberg beers served directly from ice cold boxes. Throughout the Christmas Lunch, the Thai Jazz Band entertained with wonderful beats and was suddenly accompanied by the Ambassador himself, who ensured that this Christmas Lunch would not pass without a proper Rock’n’Roll touch.
After the surprise performance by the Ambassador, the lucky draw prizes were given away as winners were called. This year there were various attractive prizes from respectively AVISTA, Designers Field, ECCO, Georg Jensen, Grand Millennium Sukhumvit, Pandora, Pharma Nord, Visit Beyond, Royal Copenhagen, Scandproducts and Stable Lodge! An impressive number of raffle tickets were sold during the lunch once again.
