13++ things children growing up outside Malaysia missed

15:49:00

And its back again! Canceled the old one. This list refers to childhood of the Before PS2 era.

1. P.Ramlee movies and songs. Hello!! Name me 3 persons yang tak pernah tonton filem-filem P.Ramlee. Heck! We even memorize the scripts AND songs! Thanks for re-runs and CDs. No matter how many times you watch them, they never bore you.

2. Childhood games with weird funky songs.

Tahi lembu,tahi kelawar, sape dulu dia keluar.
or maybe
alif, ba, ta, pak aji mata buta, nak cium anak dara, tercium bontot kuda!


3. The opportunity to buy dirt cheap junk food from mamak roti. With alibi of buying roti. (sebab junk food tu tak elok) Oh well, dapat jugak!

4. The ability to speak variations of Malay language. Let see, we have the F language. Z or P. Any letter will do. And the wa-re-_____ and oh!! cakap terbalik or cakap separuh.

5. Folk games such as congkak, batu seremban, jentik tudung botol. Yg dibenarkan bawak pegi skolah hujung2 tahun. PS2 bole ke? Tak kan.. Uno pon sorok2 bawak. And who in their right mind would bring Limited Edition Star Wars monopoly to school?

6. If we were told not to play outside, separuh menderita. But hey, we're creative people! Imaginary games! Role-playing games. And no, we dont have imaginary friends. We almost always have real friends to play with. Kids now a days, mati hidup semula taknak main kat luar. Kenapa? Sebab PS2 boleh main kat dlm rumah je.

7. Eating at fast food restaurants are advantages or rewards. Mahal kot. Pastu sume brand overseas kene menyemat nk makan tmpt2 camtu.

8. Kalau dah senja, nk suruh budak2 masuk rumah. Ape lagi! keluarlah segala cerita dongeng seperti Hantu kopek yang sorok budak dan toyol. Tapi kami memang percaya. Hantu Malaysia kreatif, so many variations. Foreign countries? Bo-ring!

9. No bubblegums until u reached highschool. Oh-man! Thats the worst. But still, we manage to 'berjinak-jinak' with bubblegums waaayyy before highschool.

10. Mini-market bus ride on our way home! 2 in one. Our source of junk food, sweets, sugar for our blood and yes, bubblegum! Mane ade bas sekolah kat tempat lain yg jual makanan, ais-krim, keropok, coklat, gula2, sugus, chewing gum, dan sebagainya.

11. Pasar malam! They have the best things! Thats hypermarket + fast food joint + toy store! Makan sedap, murah, beraneka pilihan lagi tuh!

12. Duit raya masa raya. Woot woot! Raya lah tempat lain, collection tak akan semeriah di Malaysia.

13. And the ultimate reason, our family is close. You'll get stronger and tighter bonds. Sume tok nenek, pakcik-makcik, sepupu sepapat..sume kenal! Rapat pulak tu. Xde la terkial-kial kan bile jumpe. Hehe! Family, easy as that.
