dropped by the jw marriot on sukhumvit for thanksgiving dinner at the cafe downstairs. since it’s thanksgiving they marked up their buffet price to be B2,000 a head. honestly i didn’t feel like it was worth the money, four of us went, and i don’t think we even ate enough to be worth it. there wasn’t anything special about the buffet, except that there was severely dry turkey and a huge ice carving of something that was melting at a dangerously worrysome rate. the stuffing was too doughy, not enough chestnuts, and the gravy, oh man the gravy was sad. the only thing that made up for the turkey was probably the foie gras, which after two pieces you can feel an oil/fat induced headache.

this is actually the first time i celebrated thanksgiving outside my home, and it was drastically dissapointing. i’ll admit that i didnt’ do homework and tried to find out which restaurants were holding thanksgiving dinner, but it should be few and far in between since it is an american holiday, which isn’t widely celebrated here in thailand.

dammit. i couldn’t even find pumpkin pie!
