On Thanksgiving, people will have turkey at home and have family dinner together.

As for our small little family, we had not have any turkey, but we had “Opor Ayam” (chicken Opor) for our family Thanksgiving’s dinner! Yup, one of the reason is we don’t really like to eat turkey.

But again, Thanksgiving is not about what do we have for dinner! But more on to realize what we are thank you for in our lives!
