DANCING IN THE DARK
Despite my really tired, totally exhausted condition, I forced Ibu to drive me to the Stadium to watch JDT game last Saturday. Ibu who has just arrived from picking up Faim from a friend's birthday party only had enough time to pray and a gulp of water.
'Don't worry I'll get you the usual burger from the Stadium', I said with full confidence.
Ibu just nodded and focussed on her driving while I directed her to our destination using Waze.
After not more than 30 minutes, the Waze informed us that 'you have reached your destination'.
I was confused. Something must be wrong.
Ibu quickly asked, 'why is the stadium dark, Ayah?'. Are you sure they are playing here?'.
I had to think fast. Quickly I checked FAM website. Several cars were slowing down and zipped by without stopping. Obviously as confused as we were.
Éh.. Ibu, they moved the venue to Selayang la. 'They are not playing here', I said quickly without raising my head.
Ibu laughed out very loud.
'Why are you laughing, Ibu', I asked slightly hurt.
'Well, I heard of Bruce Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark. But Playing Soccer in the Dark is totally brand new', Ibu answered.
I look out the window sheepishly and said, 'Let's just go'.
