Apa kabar? Salam sehat semuanya!

Happy New Zealand Indonesian Language Month!  New Zealand Indonesian Language Month -or Bulan Bahasa Indonesia- is really happening for the first time in New Zealand. This cultural event is a mutual initiative from Kiwi and Indonesian, aimed to increase Indonesian language learning in New Zealand, and seeks to cultivate the cultural and linguistic knowledge interest between Indonesia and New Zealand by delivering fun and practical initiatives that assist Kiwis to learn Bahasa Indonesia.

During the month of October, we will experience fun educational activities in four different cities in New Zealand: Auckland, Wellington, Palmerton North  and Queenstown. Come check out these awesome initiatives and contact your Indonesian community to be part of it.

Quiz night: Indonesia Independence Day edition


NZIA invites you to a dinner and a quiz evening on Saturday 14 August at the new Indonesian Restaurant “Seroja” at Clyde Quay Wharf. We get together at 6 pm for dinner starting at 6:30 pm. That will be followed by a quiz evening where you will be tested on your knowledge of Indonesia, so you had better start brushing that up if you want to win a prize.

The dinner will consist of a “Rijsttafel”, a Dutch word for a very elaborate Indonesian meal of some 12 dishes. It is being described as “The ultimate culinary adventure with up to 12 dishes, all served together on candle powered heaters, with steamed white rice, 4 condiments and crackers [krupuk]”.

The cost of the dinner will be $35 p.p., which is a specially reduced price for NZIA members.

Your Executive Committee has already enjoyed a very delicious lunch [at our own expense!!], served by the very friendly staff of Seroja. The Rijsttafel will be prepared by the manager of Seroja, Mr Riza Ambadar, who also manages the Restaurant Indonesia in Napier. This may be well-known to some of you.

Parking is very easy at Seroja with a special parking area in front of the restaurant at Clyde Quay Wharf. The building used to be the overseas terminal.  No stairs to climb!

We look forward to welcoming you to this special dinner and quiz evening. It will be a lot of fun and good company.
