    If you kena whacked in school by your teachers, you better keep quiet if you're smart, if not go back complain sure get caned one. No need to ask any questions, if teacher beat you, you must be in the wrong. The teachers are always right

    Now if the teachers dare to even pinch the students, must complain to MOE liao

    Yea, back than the teacher as an educator was the law & the judge. Parents & kids respected them, being a teacher back from the 60-80s, one would be highly respected as an educator moulding young minds.

    I would say all that spanking I received from the teachers in school when I was a kid brought me up to the well mannered (I hope ) person I am today.

    Kids these days hardly know the word of respect. The teaching profession has sort of lost its respect these days. Parents just complain & complain & the teacher gets landed in hot soup with MOE. Its quite dis-heartening how things turned up over the years.

    These days teaching is more like because I need a job to survive kinda thing, besides, being a teacher is sort of like an iron rice bowl due to the lack of people in the teaching profession.
    The behaviour of kids these days has made many shun the teaching profession in my opinion. Apologise if I sterotype too much! lol!

    I totally agree. Back then, teachers are supposed to be the role model for students. Teachers back then are strict enough to discipline the students. Nowadays, teachers.... some are very young age. How to expect students to respect them?
    Life is full of sh*t, anybody got toilet paper?

    You will beg your parents to go to Yaohan Shopping Centre. And rush to the toys department and start to drool to those boxes of Transformers.

    Remember making paper crackers?
    You fold the paper in such a way that when you swing it hard downwards,
    there's a really loud resounding Piak!
    We used to see who could make the best paper crackers.
    Our papers bullets got extra power we add staples to it!

    I remembered that time when electricity in our village house used to be cut off every night after 10pm and I read books and practised kungfu under the street light.

    Waa lau! talking about canning in school, the most thing I feared most is my form teacher metal ruler. Kena two stroke on the hand, tears start to come out. The discipline master's cane no worries compare to my form teacher's metal ruler and most of the form teachers during that time really super fierce le.

    Eighties were tough for me as a young kid.

    I was pushed out of wooden bed at 5am every morning to fetch pails after pails of water from village well. After than I spend 3 hours chopping firewoods.

    The elders told me it's all part of the training for kungfu.

    One day two bigger boys tried to bully me at the village schoolyard. I gave one "Pouring Water Pail Move" and sent him flying. Then I gave the other one "Firewood Chop" and he went down like a twig.
