    Mr. Bo Lundqvist, President of NordCham Philippines with Ms. Yasmine Hidalgo, Director of Public Relations of Sofitel Philippine Plaza and the NordCham Philippines Members 

    Last Wednesday, August 1, 2018, NordCham Philippines in partnership with Sofitel Philippine Plaza transported their friends and guests from the press to a Viking-themed press launch for the much-awaited celebration of the Nordic culture  The Crayfish Party 2018!

    Mr. Bo Lundqvist, President of NordCham Philippines

    “Camaraderie between Filipino and Nordic Community in the country,” is what Mr. Bo Lundqvist wants this celebration to symbolize for the Nordic, Filipino and International Community. The Crayfish Party, now on its sixth year, also presents a meaningful gathering for a cause as this year’s beneficiary is the Chosen Children Village (CCV)   a foundation dedicated to providing a home environment and care facility for physically and mentally challenged children.

    Mr. Guenter Taus, President of Chosen Children Village Foundation Inc. 

    With the celebration of true Nordic culture, this year’s Crayfish Party will be held for the second time at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila because of their commitment to gastronomic excellence through their sumptuous selection of traditional Nordic dishes, beverages, and a bountiful serving of crayfish.

    Mr. Beat Klarer, the new General Manager of Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila 

    The festivity, of course, will not be complete without alcoholic beverages ranging from San Miguel, Martin Miller, to Engkanto, and Absolut. Guests may also enjoy pairing it with the wide selection of Nordic dishes.

    The popular Swedish drinking song, Helan Går on the table with a liter of beer to symbolize a traditional Nordic experience.

    Guests will get to experience the traditional Nordic experience as they sing along to Helan Går, a popular Swedish drinking song, which is sung before a toast. Lots of singing and dancing along await guests as The Bloomfields will be performing the greatest musical hits of all time  a perfect night for good friends, gastronomic food selection, laughter, and drinking.

    The press, the international community, Filipinos and Nordic football fans play tug-of-war during the press launch

    The Crayfish Party will engage guests with lots of games like the tug-of-war, which was sampled during the press launch.

    A Crayfish Party wouldn’t be complete if not for the star of the party. Indulge in an authentic spread of crayfish with lemon wedges and dill leaves. This Swedish crayfish is traditionally brined in salt and lots of dill, boiled for hours until soaked in dill flavor.

    This September 8, 2018, come in your best Viking ensemble or favorite Nordic football jersey. Sing, dance, eat and play games like a true Nordic citizen in this delightful evening happening at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila from 6 p.m. onwards.
