As I continued on, paying attention to the cars passing by, I arrived in front of a Chinese temple. Although there is only a simple entrance, the gate and the building are painted red, so it is immediately recognizable as a Chinese temple. This is a Chinese temple called the TOASEBIO.

Local people were hanging around the gate. Some are here to pray, others are just hanging out. Usually in front of temples with many worshippers, there are people expecting to be given alms, but there were none here. Instead, there was a tailor store directly in front of the gate. The man in the photo is the tailor.

There was an old foot-pedal sewing machine on the table in front of the man with the measuring tape around his neck, and jeans on the table. The man was in the process of tailoring a pair of jeans. I wondered if he was doing business with worshippers because of the location. Next to the man were several bags of instant coffee. Perhaps he is in the business of selling coffee to thirsty visitors to the temple. In any case, the red polo shirt and yellow measuring tape looked very nice.
