Dutch Orange ball 2009


The highlight of the year for the Dutch community in Seoul would be the Dutch “Orange Ball”, held in the grand hyatt. It’s was true Dutch evening with “oranjebitter” and a Dutch band that was flown in to Seoul for the occasion.

The champagne reception.

The theme of the Orange ball was “ga fietsen” meaning “take a hike on your bike”. The place was decorated with a bicycle theme.

It was fun to see the foreigners dance on songs from “de havenzangers”, “Andre Hazes” and other typical dutch music covers. Perhaps the Oranje bitter got them into the mood!

With Andrea from the Dutch embassy. Thought it was a nice picture, it looks like we are standing in Amsterdam, while we are in fact in the heart of Seoul!

The food was very good, this is the desert. The lights dimmed and they served over 50 tables with this glowing ice cubes. I wonder how they managed to get these ice bricks so transparent.
