    i would like to thank all who have contributed to this thread...

    which allowed me to compile it all up...and i have come up with this entry

    " Those were the days " blog entry


    I have tried very hard(painstakingly sifting through the archives, yahoo and google search engines, and other sites) to come up with the photos, most of it provided by Picas Archive , i hope most of them are accurate enough. If there's isn't a photo for, it will be replaced with a closer one if not related.

    If i have accidentally linked to your site, do let me know, i would like to add a link (as a form of showing my goodwill, giving credit to).



    The entry will be updated over time if there are more things to add...meanwhile i will hunt down certain items to take photos of, to add to them. =D

    Many thanks once again to all who contributed!

    By the way the photo of the ice popsicles (Sng Pao) is too modern liao. The ones I had as a kid are made from long and thin plastic bags! The bags are first filled with flavoured drink and then the open end is then sealed either by tying a knot or with a mini rubber band. Then it is frozen and sold. To consume it you bite a small hole on the closed end of the plastic bag and slowly suck out the liquid as the ice melts. My favourite favour was sour plum (sng mueh) There is actually a "sng mueh" frozen in the ice. I think there was also pineapple flavour with small pineapple chunks frozen in. Other flavours include red-bean and orange....

    i cant find the photo! *dies*

    i rank this and the telecom's phone among the hardest photo to source for. Practically spend hours, sifting through page after page, trying different words for the search engines. Hehehe.

    Any kind soul out there have a shot of it? send me? =D

    52. the hotel collapsed in 1986 on march 15th or 16th
    You actually missed this? I wished it didn't happen man..

    Anyway, Macross is far too modern already. There is the satay man that will count the satay sticks you ate at his road side stall and bill you according to the sticks left behind. There's always only 1 stick. wahahah

    Then there are photographic papers they sold as toys and you make your own pin hole cameras from boxes to expose them.

    Well.. I din't go through the above.. those were stories from my dad's time.

    My time has mass movie screenings at the basketball court once every month.

    Wayangs drew more crowd than a soccer match.. (ok maybe not so much.. )
