"Papa, I'm not asking for money. I borrowed. Later I return it if you've saved more than pocket money during the week."
"Yes, yes, but for what?", Tanya Rudi soft.
"I waited for Dad than eight hours. I'm going to ask Dad to play Snakes and ladders. Thirty minutes
only. Mama used to say when the time Papa was very valuable. So, I want to change when Papa. I open my savings, there Rp15.000, -. But because Papa said Papa hour paid Rp 40.000, - then a half hour I had to replace the USD 20 000, -. Money savings of approximately Rp 5000, -.
