The OP captioned, “I was hesitating which food to buy. If I went to the self payment counter just five mins earlier, I could have been drenched with these dirty and smelly water…”

Place apparently reopened at around 4.30pm

According to the article, staff reopened the area at around 4.30pm that day.

The reason for the leakage appears unclear as of the time of writing.
