Life is something that everyone should try at least once
-Henry J. Tillman-
Hearing this quotation from his English teacher, Puan Mariam, Man Kuda decided that he should not waste his life anymore.. He believes that he should start living his life to the fullest after this. Strive to achieve his dreams. Enjoy and enjoy and enjoy. Furthermore, life should be tried at least once, right?
Man Kuda goes back home with a new inspiration. A new target and aim to be achieved. He calls his friend, Mat Tapa.
“Hey, let’s go. I want to do this. I’m going to do this.” Says Man Kuda to Mat Tapa.
Mat Tapa gets excited to hear this. Thrills hit him and he begins to have the feelings that it’s going to be exciting. For a very long time he had wanted for his friend to get involved because Man Kuda has got skills and excellent techniques.
“Allright. I’m with you..” Mat Tapa replies while grinning at the end of the phone quietly.

There go the two friends. Pride fills the air where they are walking. Man Kuda in his white shirt and his brother’s jeans with a pair of Converse shoes.
Mat Tapa raises his hand with his thumb up to Man Kuda.Then the race starts.
Vroom! Vroom! Vroom!
Man Kuda goes as fast as he could with only one aim. To win the race and gain respects from his peers. “Life is something that everyone should try at least once.” Man Kuda repeats the quotation as he gets faster. He is winning and he is smiling. He sees only in front without realizing a car is also speeding from his right and before he knows it, Pang! Kecepey! Prang! Ek!
Man Kuda is on the ground. Breathless.
So, there goes his life and all I can say is that his life is a wasted life.
