While walking down the wide street of Jakarta, there was a food stall on the sidewalk. It was a big stall, but not setting up shop. Long benches were placed around the center of the stall.
I was not sure what the stall served. But seeing how many locals were eating, it must be a popular stall around here. There were bags of instant coffee hanging from the beams of the stall and some green gas canisters on the side. And a man with a cap was sitting beside them. This man seemed to have come to this stall, even though he wasn't eating. Maybe this place has become a social gathering place as well.
I've been teleworking lately, and I've noticed that when we communicate online, we talk about requirements, but rarely talk about what we call small talk. However, I feel that in order to have real communication, non-essential chit-chat is very important. In the case of this stall, the man sitting next to gas canisters may be a customer who doesn't eat and doesn't make any money for the stall owner, but I feel that having such a person to talk about unimportant things is indispensable for a smooth human relationship.
