20.07.2011 | 一籮古董

[#1226] 無意中喺書櫃摷到我多年前第一部相機, 第一個反應唔係懷念往事, 而係笑到肚痛碌地!! 15年前呢一部相機, 成舊磚頭咁, 如果唔用嚟影相, 用嚟扑啲搶匪嘅頭都稱得上係上勝嘅保衛武器囉, 哈哈!!

心血來潮之下, 繼續將收埋唔再用嘅gadgets全部摷晒出嚟.. 嘩嘩嘩, 不得了, 原來將近廿年我都將佢哋保存得咁好喎.. 睇下呢幾舊古董, 真係份量十足囉, 難怪我以前出街一定要帶個大袋先可以將全部嘢拎齊啦, 好搞笑!! 比起依家, 一部手機已經有晒全部功能啦, 仲要係擺落褲袋唔多覺添, 哈哈!!
[#1226] accidentally found my very first camera deep in my book cabinet, my first reaction was not cherishing the good old days, but was a loud laugh!! this 15 year-old camera is as huge as a piece of brick, i guess if not for taking photo, it could actually be a rather good defending weapon to hit the head of those snatchers, haha!!

i got excited and continue to search for other antique gadgets i've kept aside and not using anymore.. gosh, i've managed to find all the above and surprise they are still in good conditions.. look at these white elephants, now i understand why i always need to bring along a big bag when i went out, else i can't bring them all along with me, no joke!! compare to technology now, one handphone is already equipped with all the functions, and so compact you don't even notice it inside your pocket, haha!!

  5. Whoa, what a collection, wor! Am having the same thought as Lina. I wonder also if Kheng Siong has started selling anything on ebay or perhaps now an expert for us to learn a thing or two from? You didn't own one of those very first phones they call the tai-kor-tai? That one could also do as a great defence weapon it being so huge? LOL!

  6. Keeping them, who's know, they will become valueble antique in next 20 to 30 years.

  7. those were really awesome gadgets back then :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Keep them! Who knows they may be priceless in the coming years! =)

  9. Wow, man, you are good at keeping [and finding them out]. I wanted to remember where is my very first phone, but my brain is empty - bad sector. Hahaha! Don't know what happened to it.... but one thing I remember vividly, it was so cool to own a handphone regardless its size back then :p

    And my first camera, which requires xx bateries and rolls of film and $$$$$ to develop the pictures, I think I donated it away. It's such a waste of money to develop the blurred, unfocused pictures. Unlike the technology nowadays, if unsatisfied with the picture, just press .

    ReplyDelete
  10. An iPhone 4 can replace all of those :p

    ReplyDelete
  11. I still have that kind of camera too..

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  32. i so agree... i can't imagine bringing an old version of laptop that is as big as an attache case hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  33. or even that bulky tape cassette or that big flashy film camera haha...
    but of course during those times, having such gadgets is not a laughing matter...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bro,do keep those old stuffs save and good,who knows one day,they will bring you a lot of good memories... sometimes i reckon those so called antiques do have certain kind of values to the collector not in term of money and cents but more as an enjoyment, something to savor out of life..........

    I like old stuff, i even make a few pants resonating the old school charms and i love the 80s music, my running companion MP3 consists of those 80s such like Rick Astley, Alison Moyet, Duran Duran and etc.

    thanks for sharing bro

    @ Alice Law:
    yeah, i think this was quite a popular model that time right?? haha, yes lor, that camera really bulky and i can't imagine taking it to snap photos back then, haha!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. @ 小雪:
    我的手機每次都不會丟掉的, 只是第一個給丟了, 那個還有天線非常經典的, 後點後悔沒有留下.. 其實現在把它們trade-in也好, 也有一點錢然後可以廢物回收嘛..

    @ HappySurfer:
    hahahaha, indeed a very impressive collection of those white elephants huh?? errr, that was my second handphone in the photo, my first one was the very classic Panasonic G90 that comes with antenna!! haha, but i think i've thrown that away.. no lah, can't afford those "water bottle" phone during that time, i remember it was like a brief case and somebody brought it to school before!! what a joke~~

    ReplyDelete
  42. @ Sheoh Yan:
    yeah, and i have no intention to sell them or throw them away.. will keep for maybe another 20 years and who knows they become valuable again?? :D

    @ HenRy LeE ®:
    hahaha, definitely cool and latest gadgets!! i remember not many people can afford using Palm back then but i just did, haha!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. @ Hayley:
    oh, i definitely will be keeping them, maybe 20 years down the road they become more valuable again and i can get good money, haha..

    @ yvonne:
    haha, that one in the photo was my second handphone, my first one is Panasonic GD90 which comes with antenna, so classic!! but have thrown it away already lah, should have keep it hor?? yeah, having a phone is a pride last time, but now everyone only look at iPhone as the standard, haha!! oh, i think same camera lah, you need 4 AA size batteries to operate, and then 36-film 400 (forgotten what is that already) negative roll.. and yeah, developing the photos and actually some can come out to be very disappointing.. now with digital camera, just press and press until you satisfy.. so convenient..

    ReplyDelete
  44. @ Thristhan:
    you are right, not only iPhone 4, but i think most smartphones now have all the functions and we only need one phone for all.. :)

    @ wenn:
    hehehe, you still keep that camera but i don't think you are still using them right??

    ReplyDelete
  45. @ reanaclaire:
    oh yeah, i am also curious on what will be the next technology advancement!! hmmm, maybe something like mission impossible, you can drag your screen in the air!! wow~~

    @ Small Kucing:
    yalah, actually wanted to throw but then feel very sayang and in the end just keep them.. they do bring back lots of memories actually..

    ReplyDelete
  46. @ Bananazஇ:
    errr, yeah, they actually are in good condition and also functioning, will just be too tough to throw away just like that, somemore they really mean something to me.. haha, looking forward to all your collection of antiques.. am sure yours is more interesting for staying with you more than 30 years huh.. hmmm, your pair of super duper huge bell bottom pants?? hahahaha~~ :D

    @ kyh:
    hehehehe, and i also think being able to own a discman during that time is a pride~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  47. @ Kian Fai:
    my discman also not working but still looks very handsome.. haha, i also got my mp3 player at around RM500 that time for just 512MB, but now you can easily get one with less than RM100!!

    @ Pete:
    oh, i donate to my very own SK museum lah.. keep them for another 20 years and they will become more valuable..

    ReplyDelete
  48. @ Twilight Man:
    Arumugam, those are not rubbish leh, those were once Thambee's favourite gadgets that Thambee felt so pride with them.. Arumugam you know what, without those Thambee thinks Thambee won't be able to attract Kamala also, hahahaha!! Thambee and Kamala got one consensus already, Thambee will keep all those technology gadgets, while Kamala will keep all those curry pots and milk pots.. we will keep them for another 20 years and then sell them at a good price, so that we can buy more cows and goats to milk!! maybe will give a few cows and goats to my Arumugam and Letchumi lah.. hehehehe, Thambee followed Arumugam to get all those new gadgets, because Arumugam keep recommending and persuading Thambee, so what to do?? Thambee afraid that Arumugam will get unhappy, that's why Thambee forced to get all the latest gadgets and travel to many places so that Thambee will be at the same level to talk to Arumugam, if not sure Arumugam will look down at Thambee as a slumdog only~~ oh, cannot sell them now at Chow Kit lah, Thambee rather keep them for another 20 years and sell them as antique at zBay (the latest generation of eBay by then)..

    @ lina:
    oh yeah, i am really curious what are his collections.. maybe that set of clothing he wore while first dating Mango~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. @ Medie007:
    haha, no lah, that is not any DSLR lah.. just those antique film camera operating on 4 pieces of AA size batteries, hahaha~~

    @ TZ:
    hehehe, you better keep them in good condition and know where they are.. 20 years down the road they could be very very valuable and can earn you good money~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  50. @ Isaac Tan:
    oh yeah, definitely all those memories, but before that they really give me a good laugh at their bulky and inconvenient size, hahaha..

    @ bluedreamer27:
    hahaha, it certainly was a great laugh when i saw all those bulky gadgets back then, they are really huge and so inconvenient if seen under our perspective nowadays right?? anyway, they do mean a lot and really bring back some good memories.. hahaha, so will never intend to thrown them away, who knows in 20 years time they become valuable antiques everyone wants to have?? hahaha.. oh, you also have those camera and walkman huh, interesting!! and i still remember my laptop back then given by the company, it was really a rock!! oh my.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  51. @ eugene:
    oh yes i will definitely not thrown them away but to keep them in good condition.. they mean a lot to me, all are my very first gadgets except the handphone.. my very first handphone was the Panasonic GD90 that comes with antenna, haha, classic isn't it?? haha, let's see 20 years down the road if they could bring me a fortune, or else it's always good to keep them for myself to remind me of all those good memories.. oh, i think i don't have my old clothes left, wanted to find my school uniforms but i guess i've thrown them away when i moved..

    @ lina:
    hahaha, i have no idea but i think guys appreciate gadgets just like ladies appreciate their jewelry!! you agree with me?? haha.. oh, so you got it, i think your hubby will be very happy if you buy him a glass case for all his antiques!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  52. @ suituapui:
    hehehehe, great!!! i think many people own such a camera right?? using films and runs on 4 pieces of AA size batteries, hahaha!! hey, you should keep all those old watches, i think antique watches are very valuable, many people are collecting them.. haha, Aiwa was branded walkman during that time, i think i had one also but the one i'm keeping is a Sony and that was the first one i bought myself with my own money~~

    @ Isaac Tan:
    aiyoh, it's a waste to throw away all those gadgets huh?? who knows 20 years later they will really be priceless?? so start keeping your old stuffs now, hahahaha~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wahh you still keep that sony ericsson phone! Screen cracked liao :P

    ReplyDelete
  54. @SK,
    Seeing Bananaz clothes when he was dating Mango sure fun one. Right?
    Bananaz, show us!

    Rather than put them in glass case, I just dump them in cardboard box. Out of sight,out of mind. XD

    p.s. I don't have jewelry collection, owh. Sedih... :(

    ReplyDelete
  61. you are right though that now all those functions are found in just one mobile phone which comes in so handy in all situations, that's technology.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. @ iamthewitch:
    haha, no the phone is still in perfect order, just that the crack is the antique photo effect lah.. :)

    @ lina:
    haha, but too bad, Bananaz did not show any of his collection in his final post on the 7 facts!! hmmm, maybe we shall ask him for one dedicated post on this?? haha, good, keep everything in a box and then leave them aside in the store room, clear of sight!! oh, i thought you've been saving your money to get your RM73 million diamond ring?? hahahahaha~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  63. @ CH Voon:
    haha, yeah, i still keep them in good conditions.. you are right actually, back then i think i almost have all those latest gadgets with me, that's why i was proud of myself, haha..

    @ 海市蜃樓:
    其實唔係蘋果, 而係呢種功能電話已經變成一種趨向同必要喇.. 一機在手, 方便快捷~~ :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. @ ladyviral:
    hahaha, true also, i have lost my phone inside the train few years back, what a mayhem!! so i now must make sure my iPhone is always secured with me, because it means the camera, the music player, the organiser and everything to me, haha!!

    @ victor:
    yeah, i was surprise myself too to find out all them in good conditions.. haha, yeah, it was really true that that huge film roll camera can really be a good defensive weapon, hehe!! right, i guess now many people will just use their handphone to function as camera, music player, organiser and also to go online.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. 哈哈哈,原来係咸丰年前嘅古董,我仲以为係乜出土文物!呵呵呵~~~呢啲咁有纪念价值嘅嘢,dump咗好可惜,将来话唔埋会增值,或者老到似恐龙化石摆入博物馆展览囉!哈哈哈~~~

    ReplyDelete
  66. 现在我竟然一样你说的古董都没有也!!有的丢了,有的根本没有拥有过,你要好好收藏它们啊。。几十年之后可能很值钱。

    ReplyDelete
  67. Thambee and Kamala should open a junkyard shop la! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  68. You have so many useless old gadgets and Kamala has so many dented milk and curry pots. You 2 can become future slumdog millionaires! Just start putting on your thinking cap now and plan.

    ReplyDelete
  69. You will be surprised there are funny collectors out there who would buy anything even for an antique sireh cutter!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I bought an old sireh cutter 6 years ago for RM30 and now people are offering RM250. Good money dei..

    ReplyDelete
  71. I bought an antique brass charcoal iron for RM25 like 20 years ago. Now shops selling at RM300 in Melaka's Jonker Street for this big sized one. The shopkeeper offered me RM250 but I declined to sell. I am waiting for it to hit RM1,000!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Anything you see as white elephants could become alive elephants! I will open an antique shop someday! I will name it Arumugan, Thambee & Sons Pte Ltd. Nice name dei.

    ReplyDelete
  73. 那个古董手机很熟悉呢!应该是大少爷在用着的呢!;D
    你收着很多旧呢,不知是否是很念旧的人呢?
    我很现实,所有没用到的都不想让它霸占我的位子,都会丢掉或捐出去。

    ReplyDelete
  74. 相機 - 有一台SLR(96/97)的,傳統的單眼,是在設計課程時必修的攝影,完全屬於自己的相機。現在還是完整的躺在我的衣櫃裡。。呵呵~ 第一台Digicam是在04年離開前公司時同事送的。

    Discman也有一台,是有FM的那種。。因為CD就12首歌,不能填滿自己在2小時的車程,可以用FM頂一下。。呵呵~

    至於電話,工作後幾乎每年都換手機,而且一定是Nokia,有品牌癖好。。哈哈~ 不過,自從用蘋果的iPhone後,換機的頻率就大大減低了。。手上這台還是08年的iPhone3G,專情咧~ 哇哈哈 :D

    ReplyDelete
  75. @ edward:
    真係可以算係咸豐年前嘅出土文物喇, 難得我仲收得咁好添!! 傻啦, 梗係唔會就咁就揼咗去啦, 再收埋20年可能到時有人出高價同我買添, 哈哈!!

    @ imyuyu:
    哎呀, 實在很可惜, 你以前的電話沒有收起來留念嗎?? 哈哈.. 我當然會把它們好好收藏啦, 再多20年可能就身價百倍了嘛, 呵呵~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  76. @ Twilight Man:
    hahaha, of course Thambee and Kamala will keep all those antiques in good condition for Arumugam, Thambee & Sons Pte Ltd!! so when is Arumugam going to open that company?? Thambee and Kamala can't wait, and Letchumi already want to become the Personal Assistant to CEO already, she's so excited, she can now sit on Arumugam's lap in the CEO office already, haha!! wow, Arumugam you really have great view on antiques huh, no wonder earning so much money!! oh, Thambee's house has a charcoal iron last time, but Thambee guess was thrown away when Thambee moved house, haiz, that could even be sold at RM2000 dei~~ ok, from now on, Thambee and Kamala will keep all those curry pots and milk jugs, and 20 years later they will earn us millions of rupees~~ :D

    @ Ashley:
    huh?? 你大少爺還在用著那一部古董電話?? 他那麼厲害, 居然還可以用到現在?? 我的其實鍵盤已經壞了, 有兩個號碼是按不到的.. 哈哈, 其實我有收藏東西的習慣的, 會是那些收了很久, 然後會在很久以後, 一下子把全部都丟掉那種人.. :p

    @ Jeremy O.:
    原來你是攝影發燒友哦, 那麼現在肯定有一部DSLR吧?? 不過可能你的古董SLR拍出來的照片會更加漂亮吧?? 哈哈, 你每次都會帶一張CD罷了嗎?? 帶夠3張就足夠你聽兩個小時嘛, 對嗎?? 好厲害哦你, 每年都換電話, 我的電話平均每個都用上3年有多的, 哈哈, 我比你還要專一哦~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  77. 哈哈。。。 攝影是當時的必修科。。 之後有了digicam就比較少用SLR了。。是的,兩年前也買了部DSLR。。。 想拍多少就拍多少~ 呵呵

    哈哈。。。是哦!當時也沒有想多帶。。。反正有FM。。哈哈~

    每年會換手機是因為有電信公司Upgrade的offer。。。 不換白不換。。呵呵~ 現在的iPhone跟了我也三年了。。。跟你一樣專情了。。。不過,今年應該會讓他光榮退休。。。順便給自己藉口買生日禮物給自己。。。 哇哈哈~ :P

    ReplyDelete
  78. yeah, you are very right!! now i guess many people will just need a good smartphone and that can function as all the above gadgets..

    ReplyDelete
  79. @ Jeremy O.:
    你是讀設計之類的嗎?? 攝影是必修科, 那也蠻不錯很好玩吧?? 我很少聽電台其實, 通常都是會帶幾個CD方便換喇, 不過現在有了iPod所以裡面很多歌, 一次也聽不完全部.. 哈哈, 換了iPhone我覺得你也應該很難再回去用其他牌子的電話了吧, 難怪你那麼專情, 不過iPhone 5就來了, 打算換嗎??

    @ victor:
    absolutely agree with you, nowadays a good smartphone really comes in very handy, you can just have all those functions at anytime anywhere inside just one little gadget, convenient!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. 是的,我讀的是設計~ :)

    攝影很好玩。。。當時多數都是黑白的。。而且從拍照,底片顯影,沖洗照片都是自己來。。。 很~好~玩~

    對啊,有了iPhone/iPod,都把歌曲灌進去了。。 都聽不完。。。至於iPhone5,當然啦!我手上那台iPhone 3G也跟了我三年。。是時候光榮退休了。。 如果真如謠傳那樣9月launch,更好。。。剛好買來過生日~ (^.^)

    ReplyDelete
  81. @ Jeremy O.:
    嘩, 很不錯哦, 從拍照/底片顯影/沖洗照片一腳踢, 我也覺得很好玩囉, 不過攝影不是一門便宜的興趣哦, 還是用我的傻瓜相機隨便拍了擺上blog算了, 哈哈!! 嘩, 好呀, 我支持你買iPhone 5, 應該很不錯哦.. 不過這裡應該至少也要年底吧??

    ReplyDelete
  82. 是啊!當時一點也不便宜。。。 還要自己買膠卷、藥水、相紙等。。。還好只是一年而已。。 不過,確實很好的經驗~

    現在有了數碼相機。。。 已經沒有用膠卷相機了咯。。。 要拍多少就拍多少。。。 呵呵~

    是啊。。。 又有消息出來。。。iPhone5 十月才會launch。。 就等等吧~ (^.^)

    ReplyDelete
  83. @ Jeremy O.:
    所以我說攝影是一種很貴的愛好囉, 哈哈!! 我不過可以學習到那麼多門的學問, 確實是難能可貴, 不像現在, 隨便用數碼相機一拍就拍幾十張後在選最好的一張.. 聽說美國哪裡大概九月或十月上, 不過要等到這裡有的話, 至少要三個吧??
