Kids nowadays.

They are just too pampered that they do not know how to appreciate the things that are handed to them.  As I am typing this post, I am striving to ignore the noise made by my children AND their friends bashing and trashing the toys  I bought using my hard-earned money which to them is considered as playing with.  And I tell you, it ain't music to the ears!!!!!

Those were the days when a simple game of 'tarik upih' or 'biji getah' was enough to give an orgasmic reaction during playtimes. The best thing is, it didn't even cost a penny.  But now, what was free to us back then is considered not cool or an in thing to kids now (mine ler at least..tak nak kata anak orang) but toys like 'Nerf' (whatever the hell that is), 'Bareblade' (like... what the fish???), Barbie and animated games like 'Super Crazy Maniac Guitar Deluxe 1, 2 and 3' are what it takes to give them that adrenaline rush.  Gone is the old and in with the new..

Hmmmphh..not their fault they were born into this world. It was my pleasure that created them so all I have to say is "hambik kau!"

Eee..ya lah..baru teringat pasal cut out dolls tuh..Anak patung Jepun made out of paper and dia ada baju2 lawa sangat. I used to buy them and keep in a plastic bag. Bawak mana2 aje. Itupun dah memuaskan hati kan.

Sukku..nice to see you here. I love your blog!

Yes, toys are ridiculously expensive nowadays. It costs an arm and leg at times...Good thing for Raya packets, I normally pay 50% of what the toys cost and the other 50% from the Raya money these kids get..hahahaha.

hey you're finally updating your blog again....

yeah i know what you mean about our childhood games.... those were the days of jumping ropes made from joining rubberbands (mum even complained when i asked for too much money to buy rubber bands from the grocery store)... and pebbles to play on the floor, or simply drawing out squares on the floor and hop hop hop..... we had endless fun playing those games in school didn't we??

times have changed.... and unfortunately we have to move with the time and trend as well....

take it eassy :)

Hi Rosfida, I agree with you from what I see my friend's kids here.
Age 7 ada computer, age 12 ada Ipod and h'phone. Bedroom own TV, you name it, the kids of today want or have it.

When I was young my parents were not financially well off. I was given old shoe boxes, or empty tins to play with....and yet I had fun with these, making my own toys by cutting up and gluing them.

Oh ya, my mother made me cut up old newspapers to make toilet paper as those day none.
I get 10 cts.
Pull my father's long stockings stuffed with love grass from his estate work, another 10 cents.
Wash his motorcycle, 10 cents, ha ha.
I was 7 years old!

But I guess in some ways, I learned to be creative, to learn about making money not to mention hard labour too, ha ha.
Have a nice day, Lee.

Hi Peng Peng,
It is a pleasure to see you dropping by!
Oh how can I forget playing with rubberbands? I was rubbish at it! The girls at my primary school used to play with it every single reccess and I was always left out coz I was short and could not manage to cross the rope when they put it higher!!
Pebbles was something I was really good at! :) And another game I remember is playing with bottle caps..Heheheh...those were the days.
Drop by often okay..

Uncle Lee,
My daughter who is 2 years and 7 months can operate the dvd player very well as well as turning on the computer. Her siblings have also put an icon on the desktop to her favorite Jem and Holograms song on youtube and all she has to do is click on the icon and press enter!
I am 33 years young (although my kids still think I am 21) and am still fumbling with this blogger thing at times!

I still try to be strict on them kids but if I don't do the pampering, it's the grandparents or the aunt and uncles....grrrr! I still lose then.

Thanks for dropping by Uncle..
