Where there is a crowd of people, there are people doing business for them. It was the same in this alleyway in the Glodok district of Jakarta where I was walking around. This was a densely populated residential area. It was not close to the train station, nor was it near the bus stop. It was a narrow alley where cars could not pass through. But I found that there was a food stall that catered to the residents of the neighborhood.
The wooden stall sold Chinese style long and thin fried bread called Cakwe. It is the same kind of fried bread that is often eaten with congee and soy milk for breakfast in mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. In the Glodok district here, there is the largest Chinatown in Indonesia. I wondered if they are sold here because there is a Chinatown. However, This Cakwe is a major food in Indonesia.
A boy was standing beside a young man who was making and selling Cakwe. The boy could have come to buy because he was hungry a little. The boy was staring at the man who was frying the Cakwe with a serious face and a disgruntled look was on his face. I didn't know what was going on, but he looked like something had happened that didn't add up.
