Saturday Lawrence ask me want to watch the free fireworks or not? Go Marina South and see, he said.
At first I didn't really feel like it but he said got free concert also by the singer Zhou Hua Jian. His English name is Emil, I think. What kind of cheebye name is Emil? Sound like "email", he like people to emil him issit? Why he don't choose better name like Rockson?
I told him wa lao eh, cheebye lah, that Email Chow is so kan see lang lao liao, this kind of last time star who want to see?
Then he said not only him but also got the 五月天 rock band perform. They are Taiwan group, English called May Day, is those rock one, not like those chow ah kua boy band like F4 (F stand for Fucked up issit?).
This May Day band I don't mind, because they sometimes sing Hokkien song. I hope they got sing the good Hokkien song like Chit Ba Ban, because that is what Singaporean like to hear, "One Million Dollar".
So I said ok and we go with Raymond and his friend Ah Seng. Actually Ah Seng is call Peter but we know him so long we always call him Ah Seng. He is oldest in our group I think. Ah Seng is jobless many months liao because his kuai lan company say he almost 40 years old and not useful anymore, so they use his salary to hire two 20 years old young punk. Cheebye this kind of thing also can.
When I go Marina South to eat and go bowling last time, I always drive because the place damn fucking ulu. Actually it is in town, but it is like the backside of the town, must drive one big round then can go there kind. I drive us until near there, but the road kena block! KNNBCCB!!!!
So Ah Seng said better park and take train. He laugh and say lucky I no job no money to buy car, never kena this kind of problem. He said "I no money even to buy a sex wife from Vietnam, don't say buy car, hahahahaha!!!"
So we take the train to Marina station and walk. Nabei, I eat until so big, this is my first time get out at the Marina station. Who the fuck take train go Marina one? Come out of the station is nothing, no shop, no house, just grass.
When we reach the station, a lot of people come out of the train at Marina. I think the Marina station those MRT worker also stress. Usually one day see one or two people at their station (and maybe some ghosts hahahaha!!!) but tonight KNN see so many people come and see fireworks and concert.
I not sure where is the place to see the fireworks, so I just follow the people. Got some people take the bus 400, but we saw so many people take the bus, so we decide to walk. CCB the walk really damn far, I walk until my ka chng down there also sweat, walk already got a wet wet feeling.
I tell Lawrence this firework better be worth it because we walk until so jialat. I saw many NS men in their No 4 uniform do traffic duty, I think they must be damn sian to be the National Day free worker. Every year National Day sure a lot of army boy kena do this kind of slave duty one. No wonder see their face so long. Not only kena duty, but see all the chio bu but cannot go out with them. Sibei sian.
After about 20 minutes I think, we reach the stage place together with many thousand of Singaporean who like to see free show.
When I walk on the field I sibei toolan because the concert grass land there got mud!!! KNN must be the last few days raining make the ground all wet and muddy one!! We walk that time cannot see properly where is the mud and where is the dry part, so our shoe all kena wet wet brown brown one....... CHEEBYE!!!!
I stand with the concert people near the stage because Lawrence want to hear the concert after the fireworks. We stand behind the metal bar and pack together like animal inside cage.
Wa lan eh. I never smell so many people sweat before. People squeeze together like the fucking sardine. Some even smell like sardine. And many of the girl also wear tank top and they sweat. Usually girl in tank top is very sexy to see but not that night.
The worse part is when the firework start, everybody ooh and ahh and got this girl just next to me, she stick out her hand and point at the firework in the sky.
Her armpit suddenly press next to my face and the smell from her armpit reach my nose. I almost peng san!!! I see the army boys i feel like shout MEDIC!!!
Then got another girl next to her, her friend I think, she also point up at the firework ooh and ahh. But this girl worse her armpit got hair!!!! Like this how to strike 4D!!!!!
I want to tell her move her hairy armpit away but the fireworks too loud she cannot hear me say excuse me can don't press your hairy cheebye armpit on my face or not. When I want to say excuse me, another firework boom in the sky.
So I give up and look at the sky and enjoy the free fireworks, and try to breathe through my mouth. Gahmen give us free show, of course must enjoy right? No job no money already, like Ah Seng, only got left the free things to enjoy, like the free fireworks, the free concert of Email Chow, a few unknown singers I never hear before, and 五月天. Not bad this Gahmen, Singapore 40 years birthday spend so much money. Maybe all this is try to make Singaporean happy a bit, forget their troubles.
Raymond the stupid fucker try to take photo of the fireworks with his lao ya handphone camera and complain cheebye why his photo all come out black black one.
After 10 to 20 minutes the fireworks finish and got some people clap. The sky no more bright colour and loud boom, but become dark again. The armpit girls also put their arm down liao. I can use my nose breathe again.
I turn and saw Ah Seng still looking at the night time sky macham still got fireworks and I said, "Oi, Seng ah, you looking at the empty sky for fuck? No more fireworks already."
Ah Seng did not look at me. His eyes still looking at the black black sky and then he said to me:
"All this free Gahmen fireworks is very nice to see but I wish I have a job."
His eyes now like looking far far away behind the sky.
"Then I can buy my own fireworks," he said "when it is my own 40 years birthday."
