ABU DHABI , 27th October 2022 (WAM) – The Singapore Embassy in Abu Dhabi recently hosted “Singapore Day” at the Abu Dhabi Children’s Library at Cultural Foundation. Held in partnership with Cultural Foundation and Singaporean Sarah Diab, an early childhood educator based in Abu Dhabi, the event introduced attendees to the Singaporean culture in a fun-filled setting.

Over 120 children and their parents came together for a fun filled afternoon to learn about Singapore. The event was focussed around a book titled “Ubin Elephant”, inspired by the appearance of an elephant on Pulau Ubin, one of Singapore’s offshore islands, many years ago. The children learnt greetings in Singapore’s four languages, explored tropical fruits, acted out the story, and played traditional Singaporean games. A live-sized Merlion named “Merli”, a mascot from the Singapore Tourism Board, also greeted children and families as they arrived at the library.

Kamal R Vaswani, the Ambassador of Singapore, said that the event was an initiative of the Embassy to foster greater awareness of Singapore among the young children as well as their parents. It is part of the Embassy’s outreach to foster strong people-to -people ties between both sides.

At the end of the event, Ambassador Vaswani gifted a set of children’s books penned by Singaporean authors, including “Ubin Elephant”, to the Library. These books will be available for members of the public to borrow or read at Abu Dhabi Children’s Library.
