The man was a street tailor and worked in front of a Chinese temple called TOASEBIO

As I proceeded, paying attention to the cars passing by immediately, I came to the front of the temple. There was only a sober entrance at the corner of the town, but it can be easily recognized because the buildings, including the gate, were painted red. This is a Chinese temple with the name TOASEBIO.

Locals were milling around the gate. Some people visited to worship, others just hung out. In most cases, there were people expecting alms from the worshippers, but this was not the case. Instead, a tailor had set up shop directly in front of the gate. That's the guy in this photo.

An old sewing machine was set up on a table placed firmly in front of the man with the measure around his neck. Then there was a pair of jeans on the table. The man seemed to be in the process of tailoring his jeans. There were several bags of instant coffee hanging next to him. Probably because of the location, he might be making a business out of selling coffee to thirsty worshippers.

In any case, the red polo shirt and the yellow measure looked very good.
