Pre-dawn ride

'Keluar menoreh?!' That's the terms my parents use on upon describing me leaving for work while the dawn has not crept out from its blankets of darkness. I guess metaphorically, this is really a modern way of 'menoreh'

*menoreh is actually a Malay noun that were synonimly used to describe the physical activity of a rubber tapper, where they usually leave home couple of hours before dawn to their respective rubber plantation to tap the rubber.
