ABOUT 3,000 diners in Singapore tucked into their meals at a Diner En Blanc picnic.
This year is the third time the event is being held in Singapore. Meaning “Dinner in White” in French, it was held at Tanjong Beach in Sentosa this time around, with the location revealed to participants just hours before it began yesterday evening.
Organisers of the invitation-only dinner shuttled participants to the location with their meals, tables and chairs.
Diner En Blanc has been described as a “pop-up picnic” as diners must bring their own food, tables and chairs to the event, and leave no trace once the night’s revelry ends. They also have to wear white.
The dinner, which attracted controversy previously for not allowing hawker dishes, was held in Marina Bay in 2012 and at the Marina Barrage last year. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
