Sirih and Tobacco chewing kit

The sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is one of the local favourite past time.ย  Chewing tobacco. The local old ladies of the Salako Kampung carry a chewing kit consisting of tobacco, kapor sirih (betel leaf powder), sirih (betel leaf) and buah pala (nutmeg) They mix the ingredients together and chew. The leaf usually stains their teeth a reddish colour.
