The female peddler with an apron was selling a kind of guava and dip in Sampeng Market

The Sampeng market in Bangkok was bustling. Its street was occupied by the shoppers. Besides, some hawkers were also walking among shoppers. Although I didn't know the reason, most of the hawkers here sold fruits. The woman who was pushing the trolley in the crowd was also a hawker. She also peddled fruits.

Many fruits, probably they ware guavas, were put on her trolley. And many plastic containers filled with a nondescript object like dip were also seen on her trolley. Seemingly, local people eat guava with a dip.

On inquiry, it is common for local people to eat fruits with a dip indeed. Although it is common to eat fresh vegetables with a dip in Japan, no such custom was seen. I think the sweetness of the fruit becomes spoiled. However, Thai people might not agree with my opinion.
