memories with us

we grew up watching Transformers,
Thundercats, Woody Woodpecker,
Chipmunks, Mickey Mouse, Jem, Mask,
Ninja Turtles, Voltron, Baja Hitam,
Ultraman. had to brush our teeths
during recess at primary school? had
to hold plastic cups, line up with
your classmates side by side and
start brushing our teeths at some
open area... or maybe near some
drain?? 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 that
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
our palms?? that a bowl of mihun
soup or some soup only costed 50
cents at the school canteen... 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',
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...
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
active, 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
that are sold for 10 to 20 cents..
the colourful ones.. where you
usually bite off the top to glup it
down... what about days when we felt
like doing naughty things such as
folding papers so small to
make 'lastik' and shoot each other...
how about throwing chalks?? 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 RM9.90... in computer class, we
were still using black and white
computer moniters.. played 'Atari'...
maybe SEGA or NINTENDO... well, are
we all getting older or what?
