Yesterday night I was went with my friends, Gary Wallace and Mercy Wallace to KJRI-Konsulat Jenderal Republik Indonesia (Consulate General of Republic Indonesia) for celebrating Natal Bersama 2011 KJRI (Christmas Celebration Party 2011 Consulate General of Republic Indonesia) placed in 10900 Richmond Avenue, Houston, Texas 77042.
The days before I was feeling not too good but somehow at yesterday afternoon I felt good enough to attend. The event was starting from 05:00 - 09:00 PM. Almost of the guests are the Indonesian peoples. But they're some foreign from Houston was coming also. This event was organized by Indonesian peoples who stayed and live here.
Dinner's time after Christmas service/ worship time. Very impressive dinner.
The food taste was good also.
I would like to share the pictures and some comments also at that time. The Christmas celebration starting on 05:00 PM. Off course not every peoples was came right time. But I think the event was succeed enough. Many peoples came, met the another friend, talking, singing, and dinner's time. Don't forget about take pictures time. Hehehe.

The question maybe how about me when the dinner's time. Honestly I was going around and take pictures before take my dinner. I loved to see the peoples expression when they're talking, make a joke, waiting for foods, or maybe just sitting. I was going outside from the building to see how the Consulate look like. Those are the pictures:
The cars in the Consulate-General parking area. Many of cars.
Listening the Christmas choir song when another peoples take a dinner.
A bouquet in the middle one of dinner's table. I like this picture.

Take a rest and take a dinner's food. Another area inside the Consulate building.
Every body talking. Well maybe meet another old friends here. Hehe.
A view to the corner. Crowded peoples. Peoples dressed with red color (specially for womens).
The situation in another area I guess they're the committee for this event.
Looks busy but seems happy :-).
And this is my dinner's food. More or less it's good ^^.
After the dinner's time, me and my friends, Gary and Mercy Wallace was going around and met another friend. I was taking pictures also for that time. Here's some good pictures:

Well, that's it my friends. We're not following the celebration until finished. Around 08:00 PM I think, we're leaved the Consulate building. That was a good time to meet each other, taste the Indonesian food and made some good pictures. Maybe next year or maybe another we can meet each other and celebrate the Christmas party again together.
