Man And Woman In Toasebio

In a Chinese temple called Toasebio, a man and a woman happened to visit the same altar at the same time

There were several altars set up in the hall of the Toasebio in Jakarta and deities were enshrined all over the place. The small hall was crowded with deities. If there were manners in the placement of the altar, there would be a dispute about the placement of their altars. On the other hand, this temple was not so famous and the number of visitors was not so many.

Although many visitors came to this temple continuously, there were not so many worshippers in the precinct at the same moment because they left the precinct soon after they finished praying. However, sometimes some worshippers who wanted to pray for the same deity came at the same time.

On this occasion, the worshippers seemed to have been battling each other. Despite the small space in front of the altar near the wall of the dimly lit hall, one man and one woman were visiting at the same time. A man in a red shirt, who had arrived a little earlier, was praying with his eyes closed, holding a long incense stick above his head. And a woman in green wiped her hands with a towel in the back of the man. And she was waiting for the man's praying to end. These two persons seem to be looking for the same luck. But the altar was too small to visit at the same time.
