Yesterday Part 1

In two days, Singapore turns 43! This little red dot on the map that I call home, has certainly come of age. We are now a vibrant city that is bursting with energy and it's a country that every Singaporean can be proud of. Well, most of us anyway.

In today's post and tomorrow, I'm bringing you on a special journey back to the days where Singapore didn't have cable television, we didn't have mobile phones and PSP's and we sure didn't have the kind of toys kids have these days.

These are some of the things I remember most about my childhood days in Singapore...
This was my very first game console. It totally rocked my world!

Anyone remember this game? My classmates could talk about this game for hours...

I'm not a fan of Pepsi but this was a common sight in Singapore years ago.

"By the power of Grayskull...I have the power!"

I used to take buses like these all over the island. These buses were bloody noisy!!

I know this sounds lame. I used to collect these erasers. I found them recently in the storeroom. Through the years, the erasers melted and it's now one big pile of rubber!
