Some Biko With That Nail Job?
This manicurista had black stuff on her hand, like she'd been scrubbing a dirty kaldero bottom.
And so another outdoor nail grooming session. This one had a woman beside slicing some seriously fragrant biko (a formidable snack made of rice, coconut milk and sugar).
Why does the topping part look like cake, I asked. She cooked it in a turbo oven! These changing times.
