Walk to the past

We grew up watching Transformers,
Thundercats, Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse,
Captain Planet, Barney, Ninja Turtles,
Gummie Bears, Ultraman, Doraemon.

Remember we 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 a drain?

aAnd sometimes there will be some nurses
teaching us the correct way to brush,
while they hold a huge replica of perfect teeth.

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 waited for their name to be called
to get the free carton of milk from the office.

The teachers who would want to punish
us must use yellow rulers to hit us on
our palms, or make us do "ketuk ketampi"
while holding our ears.

That a bowl of mihun soup or french fries
which only costed 50 cents at the school
canteen.

We would play games like heart attack,
monopoly, uno, old maid, snap, happy
family and all other card games,
until a teacher walks past
and we all act like nothing's going on.

Remember 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, with millions of spectators around the world.

But of course.

The best would be playing with batu seremban,
bottlecaps,'Pepsi Cola ', Cops and Robbers, catching,
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 just ice and colouring
that are sold for 10 to 20 cents,
the colourful ones where
you usually bite off the top to slowly suck the ice out.

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 chalk, or even
using it to 'whiten' our shoes?

Back then, Spice Girls were still around,
and instead of downloading out music,
we would buy blank tapes and tape the song
we want from the radio?

In computer class, we were still using
black and white computer moniters,
probably with only msDOS
or some never heard of OS.


Instead of Xbox or PS2,
we played 'Atari', maybe SEGA or NINTENDO too.

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 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
nothing...

5) when we meet 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
and have a huge smile
on your face after reading this...



Your old. =D
