There were some piles of betel leaves in the storefront

The local people like Kun, which was a combining betel leaf with areca nut, in Myanmar. The store or stall was seen everywhere in this country. So there was also a store selling Kun near the market in Kyauktan. Different from small stalls in the streets, it had large quantities in stock. It might be a tremendous volume of capital in the industry segment.

The table was placed in the storefront. And there were some piles of betel leaves. Seemingly, many people came to this store to buy Kun. Above all, what I was most attracted was the way of layering. Besides, they were layered in a beautiful pattern. I saw many kinds of fruit sold in every market in this country, yet no fruits were displayed in this fashion. The betel leaves seemed to be given special treatment.
