On the 5th of October 2019 Wisma Jerman opened its doors for the Dutch Pancake Night 2019. After last year’s event had met with the visitors’ enthusiasm, founder Robin Vogelaar, also called Mr. Pancake, decided to hold the Dutch Pancake Night for a second time at Wisma Jerman. While Robin works as a consultant during the week, he travels to different cities at the weekend to host his Pancake Nights. He has organized his event in more than 80 cities all around the world – from Rio de Janeiro and New York to Hong Kong, Singapore und Surabaya. Also this year more than 150 visitors joined the event at Wisma Jerman. While Robin and his local crew provided the ingredients for the pancakes, guests brought along different toppings like Nutella, peanut butter and marmalade. Besides many young, Indonesian visitors, international students from Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands visited the event to get to know each other, to exchange ideas and to enjoy tasty pancakes. Many guests also took the opportunity to inform themselves about the German language and our German courses at Wisma Jerman.
After all It is nice to see how easy it is to make people happy: with music, nice acquaintances and, of course, delicious pancakes. We wish Robin and his crew all the best and hope to see him again next year in Surabaya!
