I was too sick and didn’t have appetite for anything to eat yesterday and only ate package soup all day. For dinner I made Laap Herring to cheer myself up using toasted rice I brought back from Laos.

The smell of of the toasted rice mixed with toasted lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves reminded of Laos and the laap dishes I ate during my time there. Well, at least I brought back a few pieces of Lao with me.
