The Swedish Crayfish tradition has been celebrated widely not only in Singapore but all over Asia this year.
Young Professionals (YP) Singapore would not cheat themselves for one such crayfish party, and it turned out to be a great night in Tanjong Beach Club on Sentosa Island on 5 October, YP president Emelie Heden tells.
“The atmosphere was great and people really enjoyed themselves,” she tells.
Around 60 people of many different nationalities attended the crayfish party, except from Swedish also Norwegian, Danish, British, Dutch, Finnish, Singaporean and Japanese showed up.
“It was good fun, we sang Swedish traditional snaps songs and gorged ourselves in crayfishes,” Emelie Heden says noting that they had tried to add as many crayfish songs in English as possible.
“The international guest saw a new side of Scandinavia and did a great job singing along in the songs,” Emelie Heden says.
The lyrics of ABBA’s Thank you for the music changed to Thank you for the brannvin, as well as Helan Går turned to Hell and Gore.
The night continued with contemporary and old Swedish sing-along tunes counting Carola, Thomas Ledin and Swedish Housemafia. The set was performed by YP’s in house DJ, DJ Mike.
After the crayfish party YP Singapore had around 15 new members, Emelie Heden adds.
