So I’m a day late and a dollar short for #nationalentrepeneursday but that’s ok. I wanted to share my story. We were in Laos just around this same time last year and was blessed to be able to meet so many of our relatives over there — some we have never met and some we haven’t seen in 30 years. While we were there we met an uncle on Settha’s side of the family and he took us to a place that was so astonishing and full of wonder. There I fell in-love with the cutest little rice baskets, a heart-shaped thip-khao being handcrafted and sold by the local merchants and I immediately thought that our friends and family should have one as well. So I brought some home as little souvenirs to them and they LOVED it. And then I just thought to myself why should we only keep this little piece of happiness only to ourselves? I wanted to share it with everyone here in the States as much as it could allow me. And there you have it, Rice Girl Foods Thip-Khao was born. Who knows where it will take us? And who knows where it will go? But I’m happy to be able to spread a little Lao tradition in such a unique and loving way to those who welcome it. . . .
