Oktoberfest is a jubilant epoch of age-old German tradition. It all began in 1810 with the royal “I do” between Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and his beloved Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen that turned into a global extravaganza of camaraderie, hearty food, and frothy beers. Since then, Oktoberfest has shaped into a magnificent tribute to Bavarian zest for life, not merely a festival, but a narrative steeped in tradition, a warm embrace of unity—a sentiment that echoes profoundly within not only the Germans but the rest of the world.
At CYS Global Remit, bringing Oktoberfest right into our office is a bold move, it’s about letting our hair down, filling the room with laughter, clinking glasses, and creating a place where camaraderie is not just a word, but the spirit that drives our journey together.
And what is Oktoberfest without the beer and sausage! From the lively fizz of Singapore Tiger beers to the savoury grilled sausages seasoned with whispers of thyme & garlic and the hearty soul of pork knuckle nestled next to sauerkraut, Oktoberfest at CYS Global Remit is all about a feast for food lovers.
A chance for us all to come together to take a break from the daily grind and celebrate the connections we've made with one another. Here's to good company, hearty laughter, and many more memorable moments ahead!
