Response to Should betelnut sales be banned from house fronts?
NO NO NO NO NO NO.
i love betel nut and chew with care.. well actually i chew alot but with care in the sense that i dont spit around and make the place filthy. some might think its a filthy habit and it is, so is smoking, drinking, chewing of tobacco. but to be a good chewer you have to be know how to chew. the betelnut once chewed is meant to be swallowed, only the water is spat out. otherwise everything else is swallowed. I see some people fill their mouths up and take a big spit sending everything out and yes its ugly. My folks chewed, their folks chewed and my folks, folks folks chewed as well. so its a generation thing for me. none of them ever died of mouth cancer because they know how to chew and they do carefully.
AS for selling betel nut infront of the house, yes it can look like a market place only if you let it. otherwise put a box for rubbish and thus your area will be clean. it depends on the seller really is what i'm trying to say.
Simple mangi blo buai..."wink! Wink!"
