I was shopping at the nearby Poya when I noticed a vending machine stocked with Tommy Bear Co.’s new Betel Nut Spice Girls version 2 series [檳榔辣妹二彈]. In this series each character is sitting or standing at identical betel nut stands while in the first series each character includes a completely different scene.
I picked up two figures: Ji-er 吉兒 [above] and Xiao-qiao 小喬 [below].
Betel Nut is a carcinogenic stimulant sold at roadside stands throughout Taiwan. Occasionally by women wearing skimpy clothes.
