Good old days!

When I was a kid, I didn't have a laptop, iPod, Blackberry, PS3, Wifi or designer dresses.  In fact, there are so many things which is 'basics' to kids nowadays which I don't have and never bother to ask my parents to buy it for me...I have a happy childhood and I am contented with these...

...intercom my brother anytime, not need to top-up, re-charge...
(Jojo :  What is this?) bicycle...
(Mei Mei : Why grandpa don't paint it PINK?)
(JoJo : Mom, you can tie some PINK ribbon around it!)

Marbles! of the Must Have...the more the better!
(Mei Mei :  These are for the fish tank and vase!) most luxury toy at that time..I can spend hours, days...

paper dolls...
.another must have when you have friends coming over for tea party...
(Mei Mei :  Mom, don't you have Barbie doll?)

...this is my school bag for secondary school...
the bag followed my for 5 good years...
(JoJo :  Mom, don't girls use PINK school bag in those day?)
(Mei Mei : Why no princess stickers?)

Black and white TV...and back in those day...
cartoon only aired in the evening for 30 minutes..that's all...
(Jojo :  Look like a many switches?)

I played outside with friends...
(Mom : No, Mei Mei.  You can't play in the river now..
it's polluted and full of trash nowadays!)

bruised my knees, made up stories 
and played hide and seek...
(Mom : Don't play outside... you will get kidnapped!!!)

I ate what my mom made. 
(Mei Mei :  Yuck!  I want to go to Mc D!!!)

I would think twice before I say "NO" to my parents! 
(Jojo : No.  I don't want to go to bed.  I want to finished this game first!)

Life wasn't hard, it was Good & I Survived.
Now, we make life easier for our kids...will they survived as we did?

I wish my kids can enjoy and appreciate the same childhood experience 
like I once did..
But...can these be applicable to my kids?

Guess not....
Because my mom wouldn't mind
about computers and network..
But I can't live without
cos I'll be missing you guys!

What about you?
What do you think?
