i think to translate \'regardless of the fact that it\'s a school night\' literally would make the sentence look absurd and it will lost the meaning. i am assuming what this person is trying to say basically is that you shouldn\'t go out and play tonight because tomorrow is a school day. Am i correct? If my assumption is incorrect..then the direct translation should be \"kamu akan mahu keluar dan bermain, meskipun ini merupakan malam bersekolah.\"
