If you exhaust your night data volume, you can still purchase another and another after that, as many times as you want but it all expires by 5:00 AM in the morning.
Night Plan Validity Period
Since it is a night plan, you most probably know that the data you purchase can only be used in the night. The midnight plan is valid from 12:00 AM (Midnight) to 5:00 AM (Morning), meaning it is valid for 5 Hours. However, you won’t be able to browse if you exhaust your data (250MB) before 5:00 AM. If however you do not finish your data before 5:00 AM, the remaining data will expire and the data cannot be rolled-over.
