Pulling low wooden stools out from under a short square table, a group of longyi-clad men sits down at an open-air tea shop in downtown Yangon, Myanmar.


One man makes a kiss-kiss noise and calls out an order to the young waiter. Moments later, porcelain teacups filled with steaming laphet yay — sweet Burmese tea carefully mixed with black tea, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk — start to hit the table, and the men's conversation begins.




ရန္ကုန္ၿမိဳ႕လယ္ေကာင္က ေလးေထာင့္က်က်စားပဲြခုံေလးကေန ေခြးေျခပုေလးကို ဆဲြထုတ္လိုက္ၿပီး လုံခ်ည္၀တ္ထားေသာ အမ်ိဳးသားေတြ လက္ဖက္ရည္ဆိုင္ထဲမွာ ထိုင္ခ်လိုက္သည္။ 


အဲထဲက တေယာက္က ခ်ြတ္ခ်ြတ္လို႕ ေအာ္ၿပီး စားပဲြထိုးေလးကို လွမ္းေခၚလိုက္သည္။ ခဏၾကာေတာ့ လက္ဖက္က်ရည္ရယ္၊ ႏို႔ဆီရယ္၊ ႏို႔စိမ္းရယ္ ေရာထားေသာ လက္ဖက္ရည္ တခြက္ေရာက္လာၿပီး အမ်ိဳးသားတစုရဲ႔ စကား၀ိုင္းလည္း စတင္ အသက္၀င္လာသည္။
