Lap Shrimp with Escargot

The video shows the raw /fresh lap shrimp and the cooked lap shrimp. Not all lap recipes must have mint so in one recipe, I use cilantro. Lap is the national dish of Laos so please refer to my previous posts lap chicken and lap Lao beef.

Sao Lao T-Shirt - Lao Girl T-Shirt

I got this "Sao Lao" t-shirt.
"Sao" means 'girl' or 'young lady'.

Every August long weekend my cousin, Vilaysith Sanoubane, organizes "bune Lao" which is a fundraiser festival for Wat Lao Veluwanh.

It's an amazing event: a soccer tournament, concert bands, dancing, blessings from Buddhist Monks, food, and Lao merchandise. Over 5000 people attend.

For just one day, it feels like you were in Laos.

I still have a few Sao Laos t-shirts if anyone is interested.

Water Chestnut Dessert Dumplings

These water chestnut dessert dumpling resembles tapioca pearl and but with crunch and colour. The advantage of the water chestnut dessert dumpling over tapioca pearl is that the dumplings do not thicken the dessert as stated in the Tapioca Pearl dessert.

In my video, you'll see that made a dessert drink with green Ai-Yu Jelly, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, the colourful water chestnut dessert dumplings, and fresh coconut milk.
