The stall with the man leisurely reading the newspaper looked like the living room of someone's house

I was walking through Yangon's Chinatown towards the hotel where I was staying. Chinatown was bustling. A lot of people were spending time on the streets. There were food stalls here and there, and people were relaxing there. The food stall in the photo was one that I saw while walking.

It was still early for dinner, so the woman at the stall looked bored. She was standing next to a table with many plates stacked on top of each other, seemingly not taking any orders at the moment. When I turned my attention to the chairs beside the table, I saw boys and a man. The boys were playing on a phone, while the man was leisurely reading the newspaper. There was a relaxed atmosphere around them.

Looking at these stalls, I felt like I was peeking into a local home. The mother was standing in the kitchen, while the children and father were relaxing in the living room. Such a picture came to my mind. Feminists might be offended if I assume that women are the ones in the kitchen.
