As I walked through the alleys of Chinatown, I came to a restaurant. Perhaps because it was not mealtime, there were no customers inside the restaurant. Instead, the shopkeeper was sitting in the storefront preparing the food. A rolling pin for rolling out the dough was lying on the table. The two women were shaping the kneaded dough into dumplings. However, it was hard to tell what kind of dumplings they were making just by looking at them. Since this was a part of Chinatown in Bangkok, I guessed they were making some kind of dim sum.

In any case, all I could tell was that the two women were busy with their duties. As I approached them, the white-haired woman sitting in front of me only glanced at me but showed no sign of stopping her hand from kneading the dumplings. Both of them continued to work silently without uttering a single word. They didn't seem to have time to deal with strangers, but when I asked if I could take their picture, they nodded quietly without looking at me or stopping their hands.
