As a ‘tradition,’ I would bring the kids to the peryahan nearby the merkado during pistas to ride those antique-looking rides. But this year, we did not able get to do the rides because it was raining really hard.
The rain started the time we got to the peryahan — not much luck. I panicked because, well, it’s raining hard. The peryahan got muddy and floody, and it just felt eeky. We’re beside a wet market, so it did not feel that good to be dipped in the flood/mud from the wet market. And, I worried that the kids would get sick after.
But after some time, seeing no hope that I could rescue us out from the place right away, I looked at my kids and they still had fun with the throwing-25cents-at-a-table-for-some-luck-or-whatever game.
Wa lang, it’s just that I realized, there are times I / we panicked over nothing. Adults can be OA.
