Signs that you are a 60s' or 70s' baby

It certainly brings back some good old memories... :)

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 time.

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 pants"!

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 shoes. 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 'It 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 eat.
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 & Thief"!

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 Festival.

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

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. You are always surprised to see small children playing comfortably with computer.
3. When you see teenagers with mobile phones, you shake your head.
4. You spend less and less time talking on phone with your friends daily.
5. 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.
6. 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 60s n 70s babies!!!

Taipei bans TONGKAT ALI

The Taiwanese Dept of Health (DOH) has ordered all Tongkat Ali based coffee be removed from the shelves and to be destroyed. Those who are caught selling them will be fined to a maximum of NT$150K (RM16,100). DOH claimed they have not tested Tongkat Ali and do not know if it affects other ingredients in the coffee or causes side effects to the people. So there goes Power Root...

How interesting...and over here its selling like hot cakes!!

Last week was still okay as some were still on leave, some had to send their kids to school, etc. So looking forward to the next good traffic situation? its coming up in a month and a half time - CNY.

Want a Acer Ferrari Notebook?

Microsoft has been wooing influential bloggers by sending them free computers loaded with the Vista operating system. As always this action has generated controversy, with some online writers attacking would-be Vista reviewers for taking what are tantamount to bribes, while recipients defend their editorial independence, arguing that journalism-style rules prohibiting such gifts are outdated.

So far, Microsoft and AMD has given away 90 PCs, hear they are all loaded with the highest-end version of Vista - the 64-bit Ultimate edition

So far no *catch* yet, these fellas were given the option of returning the hardware to Microsoft, keeping it or disposing of it in some other way.

so hurry up!! What are you waiting for? Be an *influential* blogger today!! You'll definitely get lots of hits to your blog - with negative comments :-D
