New Year, New Blessings. We're back again - to eat on the saht with you and wrap your wrists with well wishes, then tell our stories before inviting you into our lumvong circle. An old ritual with new friends.
"The Miss International Queen stage is the most honorable contest for transgender people around the world and it's also a dream to be here for someone like me (from Laos)." - Wanmai Thammavong (#24), Winner of Best National Costumes Award
You may be winding down on your family time, (or if you run on Lao time, you're just getting started) but these moments spent together gives us many things to reflect on. Three of our participating Lao foods companies were kind enough to share memories what they're thankful for. Here are the stories sent in from kohk & sahk, Ma Der Food Co and Sap Sap.
Calling all Lao foodies, have we got a special treat for you. We asked a few of our friends at various Lao American food companies to send us some of their prepared goodies, then got the ever-so-talented Chef Deth Khaia to make a whole menu out of what was sent. Ma der, ma der!
