Like most of Thailand’s many dishes, khao lam has a great balance of flavors and can leave you very full if you’re not careful. Watch as Nhoo, Somsak, and Phol prepare khao lam in Khanom, Thailand.

Shooting this video with Huyen My was somewhat of a meditation session. We rarely spoke, other than through eye contact and smiles, and though I wasn’t making the lipstick with her, I felt as though we went on a journey together. As is the case with most of The Art of Life’s episodes, my eyes were opened yet again to the complexities that make up what appear to be the simplest of products. What’s more, after spending hours with Huyen My and watching the focus and energy she poured into the process, it became clear to me that she was creating so much more than just a product. It was a very cathartic experience. Huyen My creates these lipsticks under Poulo Condor, a brand she founded with her partner, Hoan Ta, 3 years ago. Inspired by a vision for beauty and purity, they set out to create a 100% organic, all natural lipstick and cosmetic brand in Vietnam. Using a combination of minerals, oils and waxes sourced from around the world, a variety of colors can be created to help people find their color of choice one that creates a sense of confidence.
