Great minds and good friends surprise each other with sweets

I met with Sohe today to plan her wedding photos (legit excited for that photoshoot - all the wedding fun but zero guests) and, y'know, catch up on life. I dropped off peach empanadas to PRB and she surprised me with a rainbow heart love cookie! Great minds and good friends surprise each other with sweets. We also met the sweetest puppy and had two dinners. Does oyster happy hour count as dinner?

Sok di pi mai! Happy Lao New Year!

So much fun celebrating the new year of my people with my favorite people! Fresh-pressed sugar cane juice with whisky (hot damn), Lao/Thai coconut pancakes (kanom kok), sai oua and papaya salad - so. many. yummies. I hadn't been to the Wat Lao in almost four years, it was great to visit for the new year festival. Can't wait until next year!
