[About this blog] Inspired by local soccer player Mike Lim during my rookie reporter days at Singapore Polytechnic, I set up this blog in August 2002. I feel that blogging is a novel platform to document interesting facets of my life and my thoughts on certain issues. [Email blogger] ephraim@singnet.com.sg

[memories part 2]

[11] You were there when they first introduced MRT here. You went for the first ride with your parents and you would kneel on the seat to see the scenery.

[12] Movie tickets used to cost only $3.50.

[13] Gals are fascinated by Strawberry Short Cake and Barbie Dolls.

[14] You learn to laugh like The Count in Sesame Street.

[15] You longed to buy titbits called Kaka (20 cents per pack) and Ding Dang (50 cents per box), that had a toy in it and it changes every week not forgetting the 15 cents animal crackers and the ring pop, where the lollipop is the diamond on the ring.

[16] You watched TV2 (also known as Channel 10) cartoons because Channel 5 never had enough cartoons for you.

[17] All that you know about Cantonese is from the Hong Kong serials you watched on TV2.

[18] Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, The Three Investigators, Famous Five and Secret Seven are probably the thickest story books you ever thought you have read. Even SweetValley High and Malory Towers.

[19] Civics and Moral Education was "Hao3 Gong1 Min2".

[20] KFC used to be a high class restaurant that serve food in plates and let you use metal forks and knives.
