Media Release: THE PEAK kicks off the Diplomatic Gala Ball at Shangri-la Hotel Singapore with the Dean of the Diplomatic & Consular Corps Singapore

March 1, 2019

THE PEAK, Singapore’s leading luxury lifestyle magazine, which has a history of 35 years since its establishment in 1984, celebrated an evening of cross cultural sharing with the attendance of over 80 ambassadors, high commissioners, senior consular personnel and their partners dressed in their national costumes and key corporate business leaders, at the Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore, tonight.


This event was led and graced by His Excellency James Sinclair Manley, Ambassador for the Republic of Chile & Dean of the Diplomatic & Consular Corps Singapore. He said: “I want to thank you all for being present especially during these times of fast-changing landscapes and despite the rough challenges we are facing at our interdisciplinary activities. We all strive for excellence in our Missions & projects and have a very tight schedule. Hence, I salute you all tonight with a note of gratitude and recognition for your commitment with the Singapore’s Children Society, the Diplomatic Corps and our dear Singaporean Business Community and SPH readers. May this Gala Ball celebrate Collaboration and Cooperation, establishing new links and bonding to join efforts towards a common, greater goal.”


Kicking of the event was a Latin American opening dance to the beats of the renowned Gracias a la Vida that engaged some of the 220 attendees of the night within the ballroom. 


Mr Geoff Tan, Managing Director, SPH Magazines, said: “As it is THE preferred publication of the Diplomatic & Consular Corps, I’m so happy to see so many members of the Diplomatic and Consular Corps present for this bespoke and curated encounter this evening.  With so many ambassadors, high commissioners, and senior diplomatic and consular personnel across a multiplicity of nations represented here in this ballroom, it symbolizes for me the world coming together cohesively to celebrate conviviality, community and charity.


This event was hosted by Shangri-la Hotel Singapore and made possible by the collaboration with Audi, Mitsubishi Electric, Montblanc and Eu Yan Sang.
