Happy Birthday

Chefs @ work


Tonight we are celebrating Phuong's birthday!  Dung has been planning and coordinating all the details to make sure it is going to be a memorable birthday for Phuong!   After all people are only turning 50 once so let's make sure this evening is going to be a special one for Phuong.  

The table is set up by Dzung (Phuong's sister)

The table is set up for 25 people.



In order to fit everyone in one table, Dzung had to put six foldable tables together and set them up on the deck. 

The yellow tablecloth add a nice touch of color and it reminds me of the region of Bretagne (Brittany) in France.


Nice portable lanterns served as center piece for the table.


The kids table is set up in the main dinning room

Ha and Trung brought this wonderful cheese platter for appetizers.


The arrival of the guests!


Dung, Huyen, Phuong, Ha (in the back), Chi Lien, and I, hanging out in the kitchen.

Here we are sitting around and sampling a few appetizers and a glass of wine.




Feeding the kids first....


Dzung is serving the kids.. These kids are so lucky to have a really nice meal specially prepared by Thu.

They are having grilled shrimps with Garlic and butter noodle.

You can see in the background the adults sitting outside sampling a few appetizers, sipping on wine, and enjoying the nice weather.
