Welcome to italki! It's rare to see a Lao speaker here. You could start discussions about your country and language. I'm sure a couple of users would be interested in that (I surely would), and it would help you to meet friends in this community.
Also, a tip for you and Nur: If you want that other people contact you via private message, go to the privacy settings of your profile and switch the contact permissions from "friends only" to "anyone".
