"Betel Nut Scissor"

Explanation for numerical coefficients involved in the question:

1. Kacip - A special scissor to destroy betel nuts. When I abuse cut a betel nut with this scissor, the Malay word is "mengacip". Each shred of betel nut cut this way is also called a "piak". Whether there are differences between "piak" and "kacip" to differentiate shreded kernels of beten nuts or the edible part of the nut itself, I wouldn't know.

2. Colek - To dab a little calcium hydroxide with the tip of the finger, subsequently spread on betel leave the way you spread butter on bread.

3. Kapur - This word means "chalk" as a noun, as numerical coefficient it means "a set of betel" i.e. the betel leaf is rolled in calcium hydroxide, gambier and other ingredients served with betel nut.
