Bamboo breakfast

A bit of a bamboo theme in Battambang.
This is our breakfast which we bought yesterday. It consists of sticky rice and black beans, flavoured with coconut milk, which is jammed into a piece of bamboo stick and then cooked over a charcoal fire.
Also included are baby bananas and local oranges, which betray their name and are green.
Finally,  sugar biscuits made from palm sugar collected from the flowers at the top of the palm tree and wrapped in banana leaf.
Nothing is wasted and everything from the banana, bamboo and palm trees are used and then recycled as firewood or fertilizer for the fields.
All very tasty indeed.
