Preparing To Open

People preparing to open a food stall in Jakarta

There were mobile stalls by the roadside and there were people around them getting ready to open

It's not easy for people to ply their business on the street. If you're just selling goods, it's not so bad, but if you're selling food, you have to prepare the food on the street. There would be no running water at your disposal, and you would have to provide your own electricity. As for firepower, you might be able to manage it if you prepare your own gas cylinder, but in any case, it must be troublesome for you. Some stallholders I saw in Jakarta prepared gas cylinders, but I didn't see anyone carrying around even a generator for their business.

The same was true for the people in the stall in this photo. There were two mobile food stalls lined up along the roadside, but there was no gas cylinder insight. However, this stall might not cook, bake, or fry food. There were a number of large coconuts attached to the stall in front, so it might have been a stall serving coconut juice.

There were stall owners around the stalls, and they were preparing for the opening. A woman wearing a hijab was cracking coconuts with a large machete. On the other hand, a man was idly looking at his phone. If each person has their own stall, each person has their own way of preparing for the opening.
