The bride and groom with the bride’s elders in their traditional #mien clothing in honor of preserving their culture. . In the Mien culture , all the bride’s side of the family are called “Cing Jaa” who are considered honored guests of the wedding ceremony. They are personally invited to participate and bless the couple in their new lives together. In the olden days , the ceremonies were much smaller and only those closely related to the bride would be invited to sit and eat while the groom’s side of the family cooked and served. This serves as a thank you to the bride’s side of the family because after the wedding , she would belong to her husband’s side of the family. . In the modern day , traditions are changing and everyone’s presence is much appreciated and most brides do not have to leave her family to be wedded. #meetthemccains #070718 📷 @angelathaophotography

Made some papaya salad earlier for a friend’s baby shower. 🤰🏻👶🏻⁣ ⁣ ⁣I added long string beans. I didn’t realized how expensive they are at this time of the year— over $4/lb. 😦 You can substitute them with green beans if you can’t find long string beans. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 🌶⁣ #papayasaladlover #papayasalad #papaya #tbt #thaifood #laofood #mienfood #khmerfood #hmongfood #food #foodporn #chrissyteigen #laofoodmovement #hmongkitchen #thummakhoong #lao #thai #hmong #khmer #thailand #laos #cambodia #iumiennetwork #iumien #buzzfeedfood #beautifulcuisines #eeeeeats #likeforlikes #asianfoodrecipes #beatbobbyflay @foodnetwork @bobbyflay
