Nice way to start the day!

About an hour ago before I got my morning coffee, I went to the ATM which is located outside a convenience store, As I was about to leave a motorbike pulled up with an older lady and a young boy who was probably her grandson. He was carrying a bag of Thai pastries and when he put them in the bike's basket, I pointed and said, "Those for me?" He was not sure what to say (probably didn't understand my broken Thai) Grandma started to laugh and told the boy to offer me some. I refused but it was so nice to have been offered! Pic from Wiki...sorry it is so blurry.

@Hannihar No, it is just a basket attached to the motorbike to put things in. Easier than carrying them and operating the bike.
