August 17, 2009, we celebrated the 64th Indonesian Independence Day. Mother Nature was not very friendly and we proceeded with the flag raising ceremony and the fun games in the marshaling area. We had a lot of fun. This time the engine department won the “Tug of War” but I am sure that deck department is looking forward to taking revenge next time. Of course the celebration cannot be completed without the special delicious Indonesian dinner. It was a great afternoon which was enjoyed by all.
