Happy Lao New Years!!!! 🎊🎉🎊🎉🎊🎊🎉 It was amazing to pass down the crown this year. The girls competing were friendly than last year and I love taking part of my culture. I think I looked cute too which was a bonus and it’s just incredible to be surrounded by Laotian people who aren’t my relatives. I don’t meet Laotian people often and so this was just a fabulous experience. I can’t wait to continue to celebrate New Years on Friday and Saturday at my local Lao temple. I hope everyone has a wonderful new year and that I can stop confusing my friends whenever I excitedly talk about New Years even though it’s April right now.
