Khao Poon and Tom Kai at Boun That Luang

My two aunts went to Boun That Luang this morning to offer alms to the monks and pay pay homage to the grand stupa. After the Almsgiving Ceremony, they sat down and ate Khao Poon (Spicy Rice Vermicelli Noodle Soup) and Tom Kai (Boiled Chicken) with their friends and neighbors that went with them.

After they all have been fed, it was food shopping time to take home some Ping Kai (Grilled Chicken) and Khao Larm (Sweet Steamed Rice in Bamboo Tube), Khao Poon, and Tom Kai for the rest of the family members that couldn’t be there to be part of the celebration.

There was no need to cook lunch and dinner for the day with so much food brought home from That Luang Festival.
