Description:
When a suitor's go-between pays his first visit to a maiden's parents, both parties exercise extreme reverence, politeness and indirectness. Master raconteur Ansulat Promon demonstrates these features with three metaphors: a flower the young man has seen in her father's garden, the handle of a machete not yet carved, and a betelnut palm, newly planted, that no one else is to be allowed to climb.
