here is a pretty awesome song called "khoy pen Lao" (i am Lao,) and it mostly talks about Lao food, rice liquor, and bugs that Lao people eat. and it has my favorite line: i eat sticky rice, chew it with the chunky padek.
well, one of my clients informed me that this is the ring tone he set for me, so every time i call, he answers singing this song... well, obviously i am honored by the designation. but i'm kinda confused as well. i thought i made it clear that i wanted to be mien.
(i almost got this song memorized... one verse left to go.)
