wayfaring wordhack

The things I see - Sukhothai, Thailand

 ...a waitress placing the daily offerings on the restaurants two shrines.

First she put a bowl of fresh pineapple chunks in front of the little golden statue.  She then gave it a glass of water, from a bottle, not the tap. After came two bouquets of fresh flowers in porcelain vases and garlands of flowers to hang from the shrine.  She finished with a fistful of burning incense before kneeling to pray and doing the same for the smaller shrine to the right.

How about you? Did you see anything out of your ordinary?
