My foodie friends and I decided to choose a restaurant that served French cuisine

1st course French Onion Soup

Beef braised in red wine and root vegetables

Pan Seared Salmon on Risotto thickened with tomato and cream reduction

i love the smell of these aroma herbs with my chicken soup (Joe-Pye Weed and Artemisia Lactiflora also known as Zaaj Tshua Ntuag and Taab Kib Lab) supposedly for post-partum but i boil em' with my soup when i'm feeling under the weather

I saw that my momma still had a load of it growing really well outside her yard so thought I'll pick em' to freeze so that I can eat it throughout the season...

Hi Kids,

the many Hmong New Year festivities are coming up ...

This year I added this piece into my collection...p icture does no justice, it's much more vibrant in person...these are all handmade by my father's nieces in Thailand...

This collar top is so convenient...i don't have to actually wear on a dress shirt ...word of advice, buy it from Amazon and not from those FB Hmong sellers, it's so much more cheaper on Amazon size fits all... (

nothing much as everyone probably already seen these places...but here are the foods

Day 1, landed and we went to eat at a restaurant called District One Kitche & Bar

This was the most expensive pho I've ever had  :o @ $49  :o :o was it worth it? well not the price and quantity, but the broth was actually pretty tasteful. All I needed to add was a bit of the Siracha sauce and the flavoring was perfect. I guess #YOLO

the rest of my sibling's food

the papaya salad was too much meskas fusion that it tasted nothing like authentic thai papaya salad

the Pork Buns was actually yummy...we had the fried one and the non fried one

the Matcha Thai Tea wasn't worth the $6 they charged...too bland and bitter

beef salad
