Hmong Egg Rolls

I have never realized this before, but every other egg roll that I have tasted is never as good as Hmong egg rolls. Maybe it's because I'm so used to eating Hmong egg rolls and not Chinese or Japanese egg rolls, but seriously I like Hmong ones better. We have an equal amount of veggies and meat in it which makes it taste so yummy! Every other egg roll that I have tasted only has veggies, and for some strange reason it smells to me, I just can't finish it because it tastes strange or it smells.

What does everyone else think? Do you like Hmong egg rolls more, or a different kind of egg roll? I would like to see everyone's opinion!

Hmong New Year

The Hmong New Year is this weekend in my hometown! I'm so excited, I've only missed it once in my life, when I was in a car accident and was in the hospital instead. I can't wait to go home, dress in Hmong clothes and eat and indulge in my culture! I will surely post pictures (if I even take any, I tend not to). This is the biggest celebration for Hmong people, if you are able to attend one, I would most definitely do that because it is a great way to learn about the culture and the people. It's a great way to experience a new culture, see new things, and open your eyes to different perspectives (kind of repetitive there). I just can't wait!!! I will be seeing my family and friends, it will be fun and it will help me get away from all the stress that school is giving me!
