Kiersten's accomplishment was far more impressive. Finding a turkey in Singapore is no small task, apparently. But Cold Storage has wisely taken advantage of the 7000 American-born inhabitants on this island. They started shipping in turkeys that were born, raised, slaughtered, stuffed, and cooked in the U.S. In a move bound to give any locavore a migraine, the turkeys have been flash-frozen and shipped to the other side of the world just for us Yankees in Singapore! Our friend even has a fancy oven (not so common here in Singapore) so the turkey was served hot and fresh. Of course, I stuck to the broccoli casserole, but I think Bryan was happy to have a slice of white meat on his plate.

This was without doubt our most ethnic holiday ever- an American holiday, celebrated by representatives of India, Pakistan, the U.S., South Africa, Malaysia, France, Singapore, Ghana, and more. But if eating too much food and drinking too much wine doesn't bring people together, what will?!
