Yesterday morning, I had told my mom that I want to drive car to Penang. My mom did not disagree with my request but she was no agreeing either. Because this is quite a heavy decision to make, she preferred me to ask dad. Well, from my mom face, I could tell that she is worry too.
At night, after my dad is back to home, she jio me go jusco. Well, since I have nothing I want to buy and Jusco is quite a boring place to hang out. I preferred staying at home. So, I said I don wanna go lor. Thought that my parents had went out to Jusco, I continue my routine (fb/ anime / study? lol) in my room. Ehh, my mom went into my room and ask me want go eat supper or not instead of going Jusco. Haha, her intention is obvious to me. She is creating an opening for me to (face 2 face) ask my dad permission. Well, I guess that my mom already told my dad. Just that it is more appropriate for me to ask him directly rather than using mom as middle man.. like always.. Haha, why not. So, we went to supper.
Speaking of politics. My dad is a MCA's hardcore supporter which indirecty saying that he is favor to BN. Me, the other way round, is supporting PR. I have my reason for this.. For young generation like me, I am no more influenced by those controled media such as newspaper and television. I read political news everyday through internet. My dad will not compromise in debating about BN vs PR issues. So, for all the conversations in the world between us, politic is a dangerous issue to talk about.. Since that MCA has become the spot light of recent issue, not to mention that tomorrow is Bagan Penang by-election. So, I carelessly spit out my opinion that I hope PR will win for tomorrow election. Giving UMNO a hard slap in their face and embarrass them good and proper.
My dad get fired up and defending his favorable party while defaming the opposition. Well, my rational mind told me that I must not fight back, no matter how disagree I am.. no matter how many facts that he yet to know... cause, if such a thing never handle well, a thorn will stab in our heart for a long time.. So, I keep quite and just listen to him. My mom and younger brother too, kept quite. Soon enough, my dad realize, he stop talking about politic.. and we continue our supper in pin drop silent.
"Fuck the politic...." This is what in my mind. Politic is playing with our daily life. Even in a family, there will be some who support the government and some who is supporting the opposition. It might sound silly.. but quarrel do errupt due to this stupid politic stuff. Fuck the politic.
I can see that my dad is regret for just now.. Well, I realize that something must be done, so I start talking about other issues to alter the situation. Talking about the ice-kacang ordered by my mom.. talking about the fried keautew that I am eating now is tastier than last time. A lot of craps I try to talk ... and thank goodness everything was ok and we back to usual...lolx
At first, I don't feel like bringing up the 'ask permission' matter as we had an intense condition just now. Felt like my request would be rejected immediately due to my dad's behsong-ness. But, I know that my dad is a wise man. He won't act emotionaly. Actually, I already knew that my request would be permitted from the start. There is no reason to restrict me from doing something that I eventually will gonethrough in future... cause I know my dad. However, he hope that I would personally ask his permission, so that he could voice out his advice and opinions.
So I ask, one simple question.... "Can I drive to Penang"? As I expected he has prepared for this. He already knew. My mom adi told him lu.. hahaha. Of course, he never object and give me a lot of advices.. My dad said, is true that this is a very great opportunity for you to try new experience as sooner or later you will face it too, however, we as parents do not hope to see you back to home 'lying'.. Few advices that you must embed in your mind..
1. Never let anyone to drive your car... at first, it sound ridiculous. It sound like my friends is not a qualified driver or will dump me at roadside and steal my car away.. but I don't defy him and wait his further explanation.. he said, when one is driving a car that is not his/her, he tend to drive recklessly.. well this is very true when he ask me.. how you drive in Langkawi? Do you take care the car that you drive? It hit me right on the spot.. it is damn true instead..
2. Must have ample of rest before drive.. even if you have to stop at road side to take a nap. He said, nowadays highway is too boring and you only see a freaking sienz straight road. Compare to last time where there is no highway.. you have to travel jalan biasa from town to town until you reach the destination. Last time the road is more chigek and wont sleepy.. now the road is sleepy d... hahaha.. seriously is true la..
3. Don't cut lane if not confident.. just don ngek ngek lai la.. must follow the speed limit.
Well, that is the 3 main advices that I could remember. Anyway, for sure I could drive to Penang already.
