It was drizzling last night and I was accompanying my son to his TKD class. As I passed the void deck of the neighbouring block, I noticed two figures behind the mailbox area. I immediately recognised them as a boy and a girl from my son’s TKD class, petting under the full glare of the void deck lights. They were probably about 13 and 15. When I told my son about it, he said quite matter-of-factly that it was OK since the class hadn’t started yet!
I was disgusted. Why didn’t they have the decency to hide in the stairwell? My friend Ronny told me not to be so harsh on the kids. They were just practising “judo”. That’s even more atrocious. Imagine practising judo on a TKD night. What would the Koreans say?
Have a great weekend.
