"At one week old, I think my daughter has put on some weight, although I have no scales to weigh her with," says Bounlid. "I spent several days trying to think of a name for her and decided on Lang – which means 'foreigner' in our language. In my village we never have outsiders visiting but because of Great expectations there has been a lot of foreign interest in our lives. So I thought this name was appropriate."
