Today was the first day of Lao Food Festival held at Lao National Culture Hall. This is the 8th year of the festivity organized by the Lao Businesswomen’s Association in cooperation with the Lao Women’s Union. My aunt was there at the opening ceremony and bought Khao Poon, Kaeng Nor Mai, Kaeng Kee Lek, and few other items home to share with the rest of the family members.
