Chewing betel and nuts bring people to be closer. They start telling a story by an invitation of chewing betel and nuts. This custom is not only daily habit but also carried out at all kinds of ceremonies such as new year, wedding, festival… Trau and Cau are contained inside wooden tray as offerings on the ancestor’s altar.
