Betel Nut

in #life5 years ago


It's late Saturday morning and the both of us are in a cafe drinking coffee and eating sandwich. Looking out of the cafe, I saw on a bunch of orangey fruit dangling from a lone palm tree.

After chatting about how we had each spent our week and finishing our cuppa, we walked toward the palm tree to get a closer look.


Annie said that this must be a betel nut tree and chewing the nut is highly addictive as well as dangerous as in causing oral cancer.

Of course the both of us are really uncertain if this is indeed a betel nut tree. Annie urged me not to get too close as I would not be able to get a proper snapshot of the fruit.
