Vietnamese Wedding Party

Today, I attended Thang and his brides’ wedding party at the Rex Hotel.  Thang is a former student and colleague of mine from Indochina Capital.  It was one of the best wedding parties I ever attended in Vietnam.  The food was great.  It was also nice to meet the gang from Indochina Capital and Mekong Securities again.  It has been a long time since I have seen most of them.

I decided to take some pictures of the meals.  We had a 7 course meal today that was quite tasty:

    Cool to see the menu in both languages, gives me some ideas for the future. But too weird for everyday cooking.

    Kinda cool that it posts the time in Saigon.

  • You can find English and Vietnamese menus everywhere now even in places you least expect it like alleyway restaurants. I can understand some in Vietnamese now…
