Lucky little egg rice cakes

I’m double double lucky, the old girl seemed to say.

What were the odds of scoring double yolks not once but twice in 10 quail eggs?

“Banh can” are steamed rice-batter cakes, often cooked roadside, in Nha Trang, Vietnam.

The price was VND30,000 so I haggled for 20,000. Nope, you might be lucky but you’re still paying full price, Mister!


So I gave her 50,000 ($3) anyway. Now she’s happy, I’m happy, Buddha happy.

Isn’t life good when you’re not a selfish pr*ck?
