Thanksgiving 2011 – 1st Time in Ho Chi Minh City

Even though I am not that free to host a big party, I still have my own reasons to host a feast in Saigon this year. Since 2009, it has been my latest Thanksgiving in my life. That holiday does not matter much to me. Yet, I think it is a great day – a day of feeling grateful. On the same boat with me, my boss will not go back home for this Thanksgiving. We later both agree to host our first Thanksgiving in Ho Chi Minh city, based at our Greengar Headquarter in District 1. We decided to make it a private event as his housemate and we cannot handle a big party in a small space. Actually I think Thanksgiving is not suitable for party animals. Just a day to think, feel and enjoy together with families and friends.

After a few hours planning and looking into some recipes on-line and from friends, I have an outline for that big day.

  1. Hi Angela,

    I hope you had a great thanksgiving!

    I followed your blog because I needed to contact you about Donsol, in particular about Casabianca resort.

    I have put a comment on your blog on your trip to Donsol.

    Could you please read my comment and reply me? I’m desperately needing a 2nd opinion on Casabianca.

    You can also contact me directly at

    Thank you sooo much.

    Wishing you the best in life!
