On August 17th, the employee’s union of Marubeni Indonesia Corporation held an online event to celebrate Indonesia’s Independence Day.
Every year the employee’s union organizes a trip for employees or holds a party, but this year, due the COVID-19 stay home protocols, an online event was held.
Mr. Asep from the Accounting Dept., and Ms. Sesti from ICT & Real Estate Business Dept. acted as MCs for the event, which began with a recital of Indonesia Raya―the Indonesian national anthem. Then, after a moment of silence to honor those who have fallen victim to the COVID-19 virus, the participants broke into teams to compete in a PPKM(Pagi Pagi Kita Menang)* quiz game. Also, Mr. Shinji Kasai, Chief Representative in Indonesia, gave a speech on the topic, “Striving for Togetherness through Communication”.
* PPKM is the common name for the government's COVID-19 countermeasure policies. It is popular to satirize PPKM in this region, so the quiz game was named after an Indonesian game that translates to, "Let's be a winner in the morning".
The final result of the quiz game was that the Accounting Dept. won for the second year in a row (last year they won the contest at the decoration party event).
First Place: Accounting Dept.
Second Place: Chemicals Dept-Ⅱ
Third Place: Chemicals Dept-Ⅰ
Although the event was not a very long one, it was a fun time complete with local Indonesian entertainment that brought all of the employees who participated closer together.
(Fourth Picture: One of the questions from the quiz game. The Chinese names, "Ngkoh" + "Yen" become "Ngkohyen". So, Mr. Kohyen of HR & ADMI Dept. is the correct answer.)
