Time Machine

I danced for the first time when I was 6 years old.
We all had our grand kindergarten ceremony hadn’t we?

Raja Nurfara Diba was my dancing partner.
Always remember her cheerful smile from rehearsals to performance.
What energy she possessed on that stage. So light and sincere.
Me? Apathetic look. Konon fokus.

I remember wearing make up for the first time, by Mak’s own hands.
Just for that single toddler occasion.

And I remember what it feels like to sleep.
