Man Looking Steadily At TV

Man watching TV while smoking cigar

The man watched the TV while smoking a cigar

Shot at Insein Township in Yangon, Myanmar.

The eating place in the residential area was crowded. I found a place to sit and ordered something cold to drink. This place seemed to be popular for locals. Many men came to here and relaxed. Some men talked with their friends. Some people watched the TV while drinking and smoking.

The man in this photo was the latter. He wore a pith-helmet-like hat, which was common to see that kind of hat in Myanmar. It is similar to Nón lá, which is common in Vietnam. Yet it was a little different from the Vietnamese hat. Its shape was not conical. The top was round.

A foreign movie was broadcasted on TV and the hatted man smoked a cigar without taking his eyes from the TV. Apparently, he was immersed in the movie.
