There were many stalls along the big street. The one I saw earlier was a fruit stall, but the one in front of me now was a tofu stall. TAHU TEGAL was written in large letters on the side of the stall. TAHU is the Indonesian word for tofu, and this stall reminded me of Cirebon's history of trade with China. The pronunciation of TAHU is vaguely similar to the Japanese word for tofu. Perhaps because it has been a long time since it was introduced from China, it looks like a local product, just like Japanese tofu.
Even though it was on a main street, there were not many people, and there were no customers coming to this stall to buy tofu. There were no customers coming to buy tofu from the stall, only the occasional car or Becak passing by. Behind the stall, a boy was sitting on a chair, looking at his phone. Since there were no customers, there was nothing to do. When people with time on their hands get their hands on a smartphone, they become engrossed in it, whether in the East or the West, young or old.
