Indonesian Culture Day

Indonesian Culture Day

 

The weather was perfect on Saturday, Sept. 9th and UFRA’s Indonesian Culture Day kicked off on schedule.  Altogether we had 95 guests plus 10 -15 people related to the Angklung group performers. The new Urayasu Mayor honored us with his presence and delivered his message at the beginning. We also had the Minister Counsellor from the Indonesian Embassy staying with us throughout the event.   

The lecture about Indonesia was an eye opener for most of the guests who did not know much about the country.  As always, the dances from Bali, Java and Sumatera were graceful and captivating. The martial art demonstration, called Pencak Silat, was rather special because it was performed by a Japanese woman.  Not many women, including Indonesian women, are practicing this type of martial art.  The guests were pleasantly entertained by lovely songs from the Batak group and the Angklung music by the Chiba Indonesia Society. The last item on the program was tasting Indonesian cuisine.  The Indonesian team prepared several kinds of popular dishes and sweets which all the guests seemed to have enjoyed. 

We collected ¥80.000 by selling the Charity Raffle tickets and the proceeds will benefit Yayasan Sayap Ibu, an institution in Jakarta for mentally and physically disabled children. 

Again I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Urayasu City Staff who worked extra hard to make this event a huge success.  Also to the UFRA Board members for helping out in many ways.  And last but not least, to all my dear friends and my family who assisted and supported me.  

Let’s look forward to UFRA’s next event. 

Sincerely,

Monika F.
