Betel Quid Peddler

When you hear sounds from a tambourine of crown caps, then most likely it’s the betel quid ambulant vendor with his sling of slatted wooden box containing neatly arranged betel quid in between slats. Most noticeably are the betel quid cones of colored grated coconut that are grouped together in alternating colors. I have seen more than a few betel quid vendors walking around in Colombo.

About the betel quid, though it is prettily presented and happily chewed, its habitual indulgence will have adverse oral health impact according to this informative article from a medical journal.

Dual Priced Coconut Ice Cream

This vendor was selling coconut ice cream served in half coconut shell with its coconut meat, then poured with condensed milk for a 30 baht refreshment. Moments later, one may find out that it was just 20 baht for locals but still consistently priced as 30 baht for foreigners. This realization came as I hung out just across the ice cream guy while quietly eating my delicious foreigner-priced ice cream.
