    Hahaha... That used to be the old system.

    But my kindergarden/primary school was slightly different in recess. For Kindergarden, basically we would have it slightly earlier than the other Primary levels.

    How about the following TV programmes?

    - 亲情 - HK series staring 周润发, still broadcast in Cantonese, 1980's. Other HK favourites from that era include 十大刺客, 书剑恩仇录, etc
    - 缤纷83 - Local variety show - 1980's
    - 保镖 - Taiwanese long winded slow moving swoard fighting series that was yanked half way through its broadcast so no body knew (or cared) about the ending? late 1970's
    - Ultraman and Giant Robot dubbed in Malay, shown on Channel 3 (or 10?) early 70's
    - 声宝之夜 - variety game show sponsored by Sharp, hosted by 张韦, early 70's
    - 欢乐园地 - children's education program, 1970's
    - 家住大芭窑 - children's TV seires, late 70's
    - 青春123, 小飞鱼, 新兵小传, local TV series, 1980's
    - Combat
    - Marine Boy, cartoon

    TV commercials:

    - Maggie chillie sause, characters say "wa su ka jua!" (我喜欢辣!)
    - Dumex milk powder, "Grow like a champion grow..."
    - Cambell's soup, in hokkien..."buay hiao kin, wa wu kim bo!"
    - Coca cola, around Christmas time, showing people holding candles singing "I'd like to teach the world to sing"...
    - Kodak film with the song "Remember yesterday..."
    - A lot of SIA ads...my favourite was the one showing a guy rushing to an orchestra concert, and he arrives just in time to stike the last note on a triangle.

    Others...

    The song Singapura...the lyrics as I first learned it was:

    Singapura, oh Singapura
    Thee I honour, thee I adore...

    Instead of "Sunny island set in the sea"

    Anyone remember the song "Planting rice is never fun"?
