Nice Story for Those Born Around 70's and 80's...

This really brings back lots of fond memories when I was small. I'm not sure but others, but I believe it does too. I think a bit old because I been receiving this email a few times but what the heck. Recently, I got this from a forward email again, just felt like it to post about it. For those who still not read about, you SHOULD!!!

We grew up watching Transformers, Thundercats, Woody Woodpecker, Chipmunks (btw, there will a movie on Alvin and the Chipmunks, great isn't it!!!), Mickey Mouse, Jem, Mask, Ninja Turtles, Voltron, Baja Hitam, Ultraman and the list goes on. Had to brush our teeth during recess at primary school. Had to hold plastic cups, line up with your classmates side by side and start brushing our teeth at some open area or maybe near some drain??

Do you still remember those scary moments that we had 'dentist' rooms where we had to have our teeth check? Not to forget our 'program minum susu' in primary school. Everybody is suppose to buy like cartons of milk that costed 30 cents. And you would see everyone drinking it everyday... And, cheap Vitagen and free Milo. The teachers who would want to punish us must use yellow rulers to hit us on our palms. A packet of nasi lemak was only 20 cents. That a bowl of mihun soup or some soup only cost 50 cents at the school canteen. Curi-curi keluar 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 Dong with some toys in it, 'Ti Kam', ice-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 play netball... and it would be like we were playing in the World Cup. Of course, The best would be main guli, seven 'buah' batu seremban, bottle caps, ice-cream sticks, 'Pepsi Cola one-two- three', Cops and Robbers, kalutuui, main kejar-kejar duduk. And for the not so active, those kinds of 'book games' where we would use buku latihan to draw and ask our friends to play.

Pop ice. Do you remember the ice-cream tubes which are actually ice and coloring that are sold for 10 to 20 cents. The colorful ones. Where you usually bite off the top to glue it down...what about days when we felt like doing naughty things such as folding papers so small to make 'lastik' and shoot each about throwing chalks?? Back then, Michael Jackson was just turning white.. And still had albums coming out.. Compared to CD's, we were listening to tapes that sold for RM9.90. In computer class, we were still using green light or black-and-white computer monitors. Played 'Atari'... maybe SEGA or NINTENDO.

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 already married.
  3. We shake our heads every time we see high school students fussing about their hand phones in school.
  4. We don't hang on phone with our friends for hours a day talking about nothing.
  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 read 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 am sure they would have a huge smile on their face after reading this.....
