    I was the lucky 10% that got driven by my dad to & fro school!

    But I kena condamn in my sch! hahaha! never got to drive the car in the road safety park...... Think the older generation of cars in the road safety park, you had to paddle it like a bicycle, it had gears in it but the later generations were battery powered if I am not wrong.
    But having a dad that drives me to sch & back isnt that great, he would always come down to have a chat with my form teachers & tell them to discipline me more... sian.............

    If kena complain my teacher, in the car kena slap a few times before reaching home
    Than when reached home, he would relay the complains to my mom, wa lau, kena part 2, canning from mother! hahahaha

    My report book cannot have any red colour ink.
    Blue = Pass
    Red = Fail

    See red marks, sure kena face wall for few hours. Then no TV after school. No playing soccer or any outdoor activities. Don't know how long? Curfew no limit that time?

    At that time, there's only two open air huge playgrounds; once is at Wisma, and the other is at Parkway Parade. THe Parkway one is far superior.

    For those staying in the east, you'll never forget Katong Shopping centre, it was the hottest hang out until Parkway Parade took over its place.
