Bits and Pieces of the Day - Sugar Cane Vendor!
This is a common sight every afternoon! The Sugar Cane Vendor with it's unique machine for squeezing fresh produced sugar canes. I don't know if it's available elsewhere but I've only seen this machine here in Cambodia and in Vietnam. This machine is capable of squeezing the juice from the raw sugar canes which will then be placed into a plastic container, add some crushed ice and voila! a cold and refreshing sugar cane juice which costs about VND3,000 or P6.00PHP. I was a liitle bit hesistant to try this but my curiosity drove me to buy one serving. After all, I've seen so many people buying and looks like they're enjoying it. Actually, the taste is good considering that it's all natural juice of sugar cane, nothing added onto it except the crushed ice. I'm just worried about the sanitation, though as the cart is located on side street and sugar canes are exposed. But, I tell myself..."just for the sake of trying" :)
As the famous saying says, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do"...it's good to try something different, at times... what do you think?
