Large numbers of people were working in Mahachai's shopping district. Although the shopping street was busy, not all the workers were standing around looking busy. Most of them are sitting in the storefronts waiting for customers to arrive. They are sitting on the side of the containers of fresh food, waiting for customers to come in and buy. This laid-back style matches the tropical atmosphere.

However, this style has its drawbacks. There is nothing to do unless a guest arrives. From observation, it seems that most of the time, those who are not busy tend to pass the time by watching videos on their phones or chatting with the shoppers next to them. In such a situation, the chubby woman in the photo was in the process of implementing a different method than the others. She came up with the brilliant idea of taking this spare time to do her hair. The woman sitting on the store floor is having her hair groomed while remaining ready to serve any customer who comes in. I don't know if this kind of on-site service is common around here. Either way, it seemed like an efficient way to spend time.
