    Are Klim and Dumex the same product? I believe the "Grow like a champion grow" ad is from the Dumex ad.

    Which company had the popular TV ad theme song that goes "I've got the <company name> behind me..."?

    Which milk advertisment has a girl playing the first movement of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" and then her brother came and took a sip from her cup of milk?

    I remember the ad vaguely but don't remember the brand of the milk.

    In the days when ads in dialects are still allowed:

    1. "Wa su ka lua!" "Ju lua ju ho!" ("I like it hot!", "The hotter the better!") - I think this is Maggie chilli sauce.

    2. "Bueh hiao kin, wa oo kim poh!" ("It's OK, I have Cambells (soup)") - Jin1 Bao3 Tang1.

    3. Ang gi gu ni - I think this is Milkmaid milk.

    Boy...am I old...

    YOu missed out some details. I think there was a third girl who ran towards the umbrella but there were no apples left for her.

    And the number to call for enquiries is 538766.

    When we move to 7-digit phone numbers it was updated to 2538766.

    Wonder if the number is still active now (62538766)???

    For the younger generation in CS, yes, there was a time when the government is promoting family planning and the slogan was "Two is enough", "Sheng1 yu2 yue4 duo1, fen1 xiang3 yue4 shao3".

    This should be easy to remember:

    Girl: My mother says it's good for me.
    Boy: Can I have some?
    Girl: Yes, but not too much.

    If I'm not wrong, it should be United Overseas Bank.

    Right!

    "I've got the United behing me..."

    My dad worked in UOB and got a T-shirt for me that has the wording "I've got the United behind me" on the front and the UOB logo on the back.

    How about the ad that ends in :
    'It's marvelous what **** can do for you!'

    I can't remember the words to the jingle in this ad but it shows a boy or young man going around tapping on a block of wood.

    Hint: Noodle
