80's babies..

Signs that you are a 80s' baby :

You grew up watching He-man,Transformers,
Thundercats, Silver Hawk and Mickey Mouse. Not
to forget, Ninja Turtles, Mask and Smurfs too.
Girls watched Japanese drama series like -
"Maero Attack", "Oshin" 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 ur friend has a fill
in his tooth.

You remember the packets of milk we get in
primary school to encourage us to drink more

In secondary school, girls go to the library to
borrow their favourite romance storybook. In
secondary school, girls wear their school kain
baju kurung too labuh 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 40c 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,sharpeners,notebook

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

In secondary school days, you buy the Bata BM
Turbo 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

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

The goodies from Mama shop used to be Mamee, Ka
ka,Kum Kum, Ding Dang choco balls (with toys in
the box), colourful hard "egg", "cigerette"
chocolate, pink bottle of bubbles, and small
tubes with yellow sticks to blow "more lasting"
bubbles that you can pop more air in or slam it

You never forget 'Ti Kam'.

When exams are over, the board games (eg: UNO,
Monopoly, CLUEDO) & hand 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! The pink colour ice-cream with eyes
plus a wide smile.

And the other peddler you love is the old lady
who sells juicy Muah Chee and thick golden syrup
rolled in a ballon the tip of a chopstick stick.

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,PE time (time for

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

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

All gals have a barbie doll/strawberry
shortcake/ my little pony/pound puppy, while all
boys have a star wars figurine or a rubber band
catapult that shoots folded paper!

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

Everyone envies the class monitor and his
assitant, cos they were the ones who can come up
with the daily duty rooster, giving names to
teacher on who makes the most noise.

The elite group are the prefects, the one with
license to move around, they consider themselves
above the law.

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

And your favourite holiday was Hari Raya! New
clothes, duit raya, shopping, kuih raya and
family outings!

Cheers to the 80s babies!!!
