New members of the Laos forum, introduce yourself here

Hi Stumpy

I'm apparently a freelance doing bit of internet marketing and graphic design, but Savannakhet is my hometown, so pretty much spend most of the time there :)

good afternoon to everyone,
my name is Anita, i'm currently in Laos/ Luang Prabang since May 2015, keep coming back from January 2011.
I'm business consultant with over 16 years of experience in designing processes and training. as a professional in Human Capital Management area I wish to cooperate to establish best practice in human resources processes for managers, which area - in my opinion - is suffering from lack of such knowledge.
I will appreciate forum advice, what do you think about?
with best regards,

Hi everyone,

My name is Diane, I am french, 24 years old and stay a month in Laos in 2015 (Phongsaly, Oudomxay and Luang Prabang). I really loved the people I've met and what I've seen of the country in overhall. I participated at a Baci ceremony at a friend's and still have so much things to discover about the culture.

I am now working as Sales for an IT company in the UK but I am definitly looking for a career move in Asia. Although it would be amazing to find a position in Laos, even if so far I havn't seen many opportunities.

It seems that this forum isn't super active which is a shame and I hope a lot of person will come to share their experiences about Laos in the futur :D !

Best to everyone,

Hi all, my name is Phillip. I'm a Canadian expat and have called Laos home since 2006. It's been a wonderful few years and I am never going back to Canada. Laos is home. The best place I've ever been.

I wonder if anyone out there is interested in doing some playing. I'm 56 and a drummer, so my music tastes run to classic rock n roll.

Hi Ashkalicious

Welcome to the forum.
There are restaurants that advertise halal food. Just Google it.

If you are looking for halal groceries I suggest you you go to the 2 mosques here in Vientiane for information. Again, Google search will give you locations.

You are most welcome.

You could try the Khouvieng Pet Shop in Khouvieng road 02055236863.
There is a Facebook page as well.
Just Google pet stores Vientiane.

Some of the grocery shops that expats use have adverts in their windows for expats selling all manner of things.
Ask your Lao work colleagues too.
