    I still remember a incident in my primary school when a student fell into a rather wide ditch face first with the sharp end of the comb piercing his lower back in the process. The comb was subsequently banned.

    Back then drinks in the canteen cost like 10/20 cents though we'll have to bush our teeth first during recess before we can actually purchase anything and students have to queue up to use the only payphone in the school compound.

    I agree!! And then you had to peel it open carefully and pop out the top paper thing which printed smth like Chicken Glutinous Rice right? Oh those good old days. It was the top selling thing in school tuckshops.

    Yes! those dragonball cards!! and sometimes those higher level cards had 2 stickers, you peel the first layer and if you're lucky, there's a second layer below. I wonder how much these cards are worth now- they're considered collector's items already right?

    cigs were damned cheaper in the 90's... and smaller selling in 10 sticks.

    mama shops selling cigs at 20cents per stick to rebellious students to smoke in void decks.

    bennyhill show was the most 'horniest' late-night show on channel 5.

    Buffy the vampire slayer! ally mcbeal. oh the good old shows and TCS dramas! I remember this schooldays show with Chen Hanwei and Fann Wong

    Shopping centres in the 1990s were so different too. They didn't have that many retail chain stores...

    Wow, gen Y people are getting nostalgic about TCS. To me nostalgia = SBC, I guess that means I'm getting old.
