i'm busy so.. i'll leave you guys with these. really nostalgic stuff dudes.

brings tears to my eyes... NOT!

Especially for us borned and raised in Malaysia (esp. fond of the
memory of the Milo truck coming to school once in a blue moon to give
away free packet-chocolate- milk at school!). Miss the good old days -
despite its low-tech nature....

For your reading pleasure...some might be true.
Hope you will all enjoy reading it. This might bring you back the old
memory especially during those school days.....

Signs that you are a 70s' or 80s' baby:
You grew up watching G-Force, He-man, Transformers, Thundercats,
Silver Hawk, Woody Woodpecker, Chipmunks and Mickey Mouse. Not to
forget Ninja Turtles, Mask, Smurfs and Voltron too.

Girls watched Japanese cartoon like My Little Pony, "Xiao Tian Tian",
"Hua Xian Zi" etc.

You grew up brushing your teeth with a mug in primary school after recess

You squatted by a drain with all your classmates beside you, and
brushed your teeth with a colourful mug.

Remember the days when the school nurse, comes with a list for the
dentist appointment, the sound of the drilling when your friend has a
fill in his tooth.

You remember the packets of milk we get in primary school to encourage
us to drink more milk. (It cost only 30 cent per pack)

In secondary school, girls go to the library to borrow their favourite
romance storybook.

In secondary school, girls altered their school skirt to shorten it
and guys will go to the school appointed school uniform tailor shop to
tailor make their school trousers to the then fashionable "baggy

During primary school days, the teacher will punish you using a ruler
to hit your palm.

A bowl of noodles soup cost only 30cent in primary school days.

When you were in primary school, girls like to go to the bookshop to
buy cute stuff such as animal erasers, various shape sharpeners,
colourful notebook etc.

Hankyu Jaya, Yaohan departmental stores used to be a favourite hangout
for families during weekends.

In secondary school days, you buy the Bata BM Turbo or Pallas Jazz school
Some guys like to wear those china made ankle high shoes. Some even
like to wear those very thick socks with their school shoes.

Internet? E-mail? What the hell is that?

So you thought a decade or more ago, your friends don't have pagers or
handphones in school.

CDs? What's that? Cassette tapes were the norm.
Movie tickets used to cost less than $5 last time.

The goodies from Mama shop used to be Chickerdis, Mamee , Kum Kum,
UFO, O-Ya, Ding Dang chocolate balls with toys in the box, colourful
hard "egg", "cigerette" bubble gum, KIKI Bubble Gum, pink bottle of
bubbles c/w a small tubes with yellow sticks to blow "more lasting"
bubbles that you can pop more air in or slam it on.

You never forget 'Ti Kam'.
When exams are over, the board games (e.g Monopoly, Donkey,
Transportation Comparison Card) & held video games will be all over
the class room.

Your favourite sound is the bell
For it's the homemade ice cream man.
The cream that tops Haagan Dazs!

And the other peddler you love is the old lady who sells juicy Muah
Chee and thick olden syrup rolled in a balloon the tip of a chopstick

Another bell is the recess bell, a time to get away from school work and to

Another time when there is no bell but all guys will anxiously wait
for it...The PJ (Pendidikan Jasmani), PE time (time for football)

Your favourite childhood games were playing "guli"(marbles) , five
stones, five bottle cover, zero-point, catching, "Pepsi-Cola one two
three" and/or "Police & Sentry"!

The best thirst quencher of all times is the yummy colourful ice tubes
you can buy from provision shops for only 10cent. To eat them,break
the tab and suck while holding the freezing tube!

All gals have a girl doll/strawberry shortcake/my little pony/pound
puppy, while all boys have a soldiers figurine (combat) or a rubber
band catapult that shoots folded paper!

Once was the era whereby ice-cream sticks were valuable items, then
came the paper aircrafts, chalk fights.

Some boys made their own guns from wood, and used 'Bacali' as the bullets.

Some even used matches to shoot and burn kids'lanterns during MoonCake

And your favourite holiday was Lunar New Year! New clothes, Ang Pows,
shopping, junk food and family outings!

Let's see, the majority of students in universities today were born in
1987 / 88.... They are called "youth".

For them, they have never heard of the song "We are the World, we are
the Children..." And the "Uptown Girl" they know is by 'West Life' but
not 'Billy Joel'.

For them, there have always been only one Germany and only one
Vietnam. AIDS exists since they were born.

CD exists since they were born.

Michael Jackson is already whitened.

John Travolta is always round in shape and they can't imagine how this
fat guy could be a god of dance.

They believe that Spiderman and Incredible Hulk are just new films.

They can never imagine a black and white screen for a computer.

They never know what is Atari or 'Game & Watch'.

They can't believe a black and white television ever existed and they
don't even know how to switch on a TV without a remote control.

And they never understand how we can go out without a mobile phone
when we were in university.. .

Let's check if we're getting old...

1. You understand what was written above and you smile.

2. Most of your secondary school friends are getting married.

3. You are always surprised to see small children playing comfortably
with computer.

4. When you see teenagers with mobile phones, you shake your head.

5. You spend less and less time talking on phone with your friends daily.

6. When you meet your old friends from time to time, talking about the
good old days, repeating again and again all funny stories you
experienced together.

7. Lastly, having read this mail, you are thinking of forwarding it to
some other old friends. You think they will like it too.....

Hahaha!.... Yes! We are getting old too......... ..

Brings back old memories huh?

Cheers to the 70s n 80s babies!!!
