Masterpiece! #repost @socialdelicious ・・・ I came along I wrote a song for you And all the things you do And it was called “Yellow" ~ Coldplay~ . I present to you, a classic Thai dessert called ฝอยทอง (Foi Thong). These golden threads are often used in wedding ceremonies because it signifies fortune and lasting love. Made entirely of egg yolk drizzled in simple syrup, if you’ve tasted them before you know how decadent these auspicious strands are. It was my first time making them and despite a couple of initial hiccups, they didn’t turn out so bad. ☺️💛

#independencemovementoftheday Hmong Chao Fa 🇱🇦🇱🇦🇱🇦 Capital N/A Population 1,000,000 Area N/A Language Hmong Religion Buddhist, Christian, Shamanism Currency Part of Laos The Hmong people are an ethnic group in East and Southeast Asia. In the early 1960s, partially as a result of the North Vietnamese invasion of Laos the CIA began to recruit, train and lead the indigenous Hmong people in Laos to fight against North Vietnamese Army divisions invading Laos during the Vietnam War. This "Secret Army" was organized into various mobile regiments and divisions, including various Special Guerrilla Units, all of whom were led by General Vang Pao. An estimated sixty-percent (60%) of Hmong men in Laos joined up. For many years, the Neo Hom resistance and political movement played a key role in resistance to the Vietnam People's Army in Laos following the U.S. withdrawal in 1975. Vang Pao played a significant role in this movement. In June 1991, after talks with the UNHCR and the Thai government, Laos agreed to the repatriation of over 60,000 Lao refugees living in Thailand, including tens of thousands of Hmong people. Very few of the Lao refugees, however, were willing to return voluntarily. Pressure to resettle the refugees grew as the Thai government worked to close its remaining refugee camps. While some Hmong people returned to Laos voluntarily, with development assistance from UNHCR, coercive measures and forced repatriation was used to send thousands of Hmong back to the communist regime they had fled. In 2004 and 2005, thousands of Hmong fled from the jungles of Laos to a temporary refugee camp in the Thai province of Phetchabun. On 4 June 2007, as part of an investigation labeled "Operation Tarnished Eagle," warrants were issued by U.S. federal courts ordering the arrest of Vang Pao and nine others for plotting to overthrow the government of Laos in violation of the federal Neutrality Acts and for multiple weapons
