Well, upon looking at my friendster page, I stumbled upon this interesting article forwarded by a friend of a friend in the list. Here it goes:

Title: Flashback when we are young.
we grew up watching Transformers,
Thundercats, Woody Woodpecker,
Chipmunks, Mickey Mouse, Jem, Mask,
Ninja Turtles, Voltron, Baja Hitam,
had to brush our teeths during recess
primary school? had to hold plastic
cups, line up with your classmates side
by side and start brushing our teeths
some open area... or maybe near some
do you still remember that we
had 'dentist' rooms where we had to
have our teeths check?
not to forget our 'program minum susu'
in primary school.. everybody is
suppose to buy like cartons of milk
costed 30 cents.. and you would see
everyone drinking it everyday...
the teachers who would want to punish
us must use yellow rulers to hit us on
that a bowl of mihun soup or some soup
only costed 50 cents at the school
went to some sundry shop near the
school or to the 'roti' man waiting
outside our schools so that we can buy
junk food like chickedees, mamee, ding
dang with some toys in it, 'Ti Kam',
cream and we would play games like
monopoly, uno, old maid, and all other
card games like that...
another fun time would be during
Pendidikan Jasmani. the boys would
play football while the girls would
netball... and it would be like we were
playing in the world cup...
but of course. the best would be main
guli, batu seremban, bottlecaps, ice-
cream sticks, 'Pepsi Cola one-two-
three', Cops and Robbers, main kejar-
kejar duduk.. and for the not so
those kind of 'book games' where we
would use buku latihan to draw and ask
our friends to play...
do you remember the ice-cream tubes
which are actually ice and colouring
are sold for 10 to 20 cents.. the
ones.. where you usually bite off the
to glup it down...
what about days when we felt like doing
naughty things such as folding papers
so small to make 'lastik' amd shoot
each other... how about throwing
back then, micheal jackson was just
turning white.. and still had albums
coming out.. compared to CD's, we were
listening to tapes that sold for
in computer class, we were still using
black and white computer moniters..
played 'Atari'... maybe SEGA or
well, are we all getting older or what?
1) if you understand what you have read
and you are smiling...
2) we have friends from school that are
3) we shake our heads everytime we
see high school students fussing about
their handphones in school..
4) we don't hang on phone with our
friends for hours a day talking about
5) when we meet back with our friends
from time to time, we feel excited and
happy talking about old times, the
funny 'adventures' or stories that we
experienced as a kid..
6) last but not least, that when you
this, you would think of all the happy
sad memories that you have
experienced when you were still a kid
and would think of forwarding this to
your old friends that you have known
since forever... i'm sure they would
a huge smile on their face after
Well, I'm sure nostalgic for some oldies and those who gone through that particular era.
