Being Simpanan

When I told my mother that I would be representing the school in a traffic games competition, my mother said, “But you have just learnt how to ride a bike?”

For the past one month, I went for training at the traffic garden every Saturday morning at 6 am until 8 am. My mother sent me there while my teacher trained me. I have enjoyed it thoroughly.

Yesterday evening, we were in the car. I told mum that I had another training session tomorrow morning. Mum asked what event I would be taking part. I told mum, “I am “simpanan”.”

Mum asked what’s “simpanan”. I told her it’s “reserved”.

“Reserved?” Mum looked at me and laughed.

I told my mother,

“Do you know being a “simpanan” is most difficult? I have to be trained in all the three events. I have to learn how to ride a bike, I have to learn to walk and I have to learn to drive. Because I don’t know who is not able to participate. I also have to learn the laws.”

Mum smiled and said, “What are you going to do if all the representatives can participate?”

If all my classmates can participate in the games, I think I can be a cheer leader!

(Hello, uncles, aunties and Jie-jie who have wished me a happy birthday, this one is for you all. I am small, but I can be a cheer leader if you ever need one. Best, Chris) )
