Whaaaaa?!? 😱😱😱 Our jerky was listed as a top fave at the Go Texan General Store at the State Fair this year by D Magazine!!! What an honor to be selected out of all the incredible products in the shop!! Thank you so much for the shout-out @d_magazine!!! 🙏🙏🙏 Link in bio to order our jerky and see what all the fuss is about. 😉
Our inspiration comes from stories. It was the first time we visited Laos and heard our family’s story. It was when we walked in the village, in the same foot steps as my father, my grandfather. And it was when we realized all we have is our memories and stories of a place we’ve been longing to know. // We are so honored to be apart of this! This is truly what we love about our service industry. Saying yes to important matters + showing up wholeheartedly. Please join us at the @theseadproject book launch on November 10th!

Thank you. Truth.
Recap of the food I’ve created. I hope you allow your senses and the beauty of all the things you love and are passionate about consume you and bring you closer to God, whatever god is to you whether it is the Universe, the Source, Mother Nature, Omega, Alpha, Energy, or yourself. It doesn’t matter as long as it’s a source of love, of purpose, of kindness, of compassion, of giving, of forgiving, of detachment and accepting and allowing, of being open and awareness of self and of a conscious collective Love for yourself and the Universe. Be kind always. And I hope whatever you do and whoever you are, show it instead of just saying it 💓 Love and kindness and decency transcends religion and politics always.

Sometimes you got to jump to see further. Take a leap of faith. 5k run on this beautiful morning to start my day. This run felt great--my breathing was comfortable and in synch with my foot steps. A mile into the run, my mind started to wander about the challenges in my life; then I thought about all the positives in my life--the things I'm grateful for and my goals/dreams--and that changed my outlook, my state of mind. Sometimes a run is just a run, and sometimes a run turns into a revelation. .

Latsaphone Koonpackdee (@dancefit_mamma ) also known to her family as, Menoi, was born in Vientiane, Laos and moved to Canada with her family in the 80’s. Currently, she lives in British Columbia, Canada and practices her activities of choice, Yoga (started in January of 2014) and Polefit (started in July 12, 2018). Latsaphone discovered Yoga after four months of immobility due to a disc slip in her back. After that injury, she became heavily addicted to OxyContin and T3s. That’s when she decided to do some research on alternative pain relief and stumbled upon Yoga in a Google search. Within 3 months of doing Yoga, she was able to walk upright and was even able to do the splits for the first time ever in her life. Even though Latsaphone was able to quit Oxy, she developed a new dependence on alcohol.
During this time Yoga really helped her find clarity and was able to focus in on the important things in life. Along the way, she discovered the power of self-love and now she will be celebrating 5 years of sobriety on December 31, 2018. With Yoga and the support of her family Latsaphone was able to overcome all her addictions.
Her message to everyone out in the world is to not be too hard on yourself. As long as you are doing your best, you are doing awesome!

I’m really glad today’s sick day is coinciding with all these leftover soups in my fridge (all made by @donna_brown267) from yesterday’s @laos_inthehouse photoshoot. #OodlesOfLaoNoodles
HBD to us!! ❤️ #Repost @iamkulap
Today is the one year anniversary of the formation of @laos_angeles on Facebook. I am so grateful for this community. I think it says a lot that I threw my back out for the first time very early during our potluck picnic AND I STILL HAD A GREAT TIME. I only regret that my injury prevented me from being able to spike the volleyball into the faces of these beautiful people who have become my family. ❤️
We are birthday twins with this guy!! Thank you McSpicy for being a physical therapist to @iamkulap after she pulled her lower back after playing around the volleyball net for 5 minutes.
