2014.02.07 | 再度重遇

[Volume 9 Issue 2, #1857]
大家放完年假返咗工未?? 年卅晚除夕, 稍為清理下自己間房, 結果摷到呢幾樣連自己都已經唔記得有佢存在嘅嘢, 十幾廿年前嘅收藏品, 今日再度重遇.. 由左上角開始, 順時方向同大家分享一下..
  1. 1998年端午節, 朋友寄俾我嘅明信片.. 猶記得當時仲係興書信來往, 差不多每隔幾日就收到朋友嘅信, 回信嘅時間分分鐘多過上堂時間, 呵呵!! :D
  2. 1998年回歸之前, 由英國去咗幾個歐洲國家旅行, 當時未有通用歐羅, 所以去每個國家都要暢定不同貨幣.. 我就每個國家收一張, 唔知道16年後嘅今日, 昇值幾多呢?? :p
  3. 1996年影嘅證件相, 重複又重複咁用喺不同證件上.. 嘩, 個髮型吖, 係想鄭伊健定郭富城先?? 哇哈哈哈哈!!! 真係幾想刮自己一巴, 該煨~~ :D
  4. 1992年買嘅一餅音樂卡帶, 22年喇, 應該都算係古董啩?? 雖然我冇個cassette player去聽, 不過保存得很好, 睇落都仲好新淨喎.. 有冇收藏家要高價收購?? :p
are you back to work after your CNY holidays?? on the eve of CNY, i was spring-cleaning my room a little and found these things i don't even remember they ever existed, things i've kept since over 10 years ago, are now lost and found.. starting from top left and in a clockwise direction, let me share with you my "collection"..
  1. on dumpling festival in 1998, a friend sent me this postcard.. i still remember we were still commonly writing letters to correspond that time, almost every couple of days i would get a letter, and i guess the time i spent on replying was more than the time i went for lectures, haha!! :D
  2. before i came back home in 1998, i traveled to a few european countries from UK, there was no Euro yet that time so for every country that i went i have to exchange different currencies.. and i kept one piece from each, i wonder after 16 years, how much have they appreciated?? :p
  3. the photos i've taken in 1996 and kept using them repeatedly on different identity cards.. wow, my hairstyle back then, was it Ekin Cheng or Aaron Kwok wannabe?? muahahaha!!! really feel like slapping myself, OMG~~ :D
  4. a music cassette i bought way back in 1992, it's already 22 years old now and can be considered an antique?? though i do not have a casetter player now to play it, it is very well kept and still looks new.. any collectors to buy at good price?? :p

In bath room tengah mandi also sing leh. But when comes to Karaoke..me kecut ...coz i know my voice sound like frog calling rain...hm...no wonder la raining so much back then.

      Yea...i used to yowl the famous one la...the leon lai...aaron...jackie chueng..strangely i tarak minat Andy lau wor.

    7. Uikks, Meow is back so fast ahh? Justnow you said will be back.. Eh, how many times you go opit in a day? After J goes to skool at 8am, you sit in opit until 12pm? Then what do you usually do from 12pm onwards? Cerita sikit la..

      Actually yes la.. I’m also like that.. But I didn’t comment here only.. Lastime leh, weird, I never worship the “sei tai tin wong”.. But that time, entah kenapa, I like Jimmy Lin wor.. In canto we call him “Lum Chee Weng”.. Cute ma, kan?

      I still remember the movie he acted that time very “hing” one.. The kung-fu movie with the fatty boy.. Entah nama ape already la..

      Oh yes, in the shower I sure sing some songs one.. That time, “hing” that Wannabe by Spicegirls.. So I kept on shouting and screaming in the toilet.. Of course that time I was alone at home, nobody at home.. Morning skool ma.. Afternoon came home.. House empty.. Parents working.. So I got the whole house to myself, can sing..

      Ooohh, not only Wannabe by Spicegirls, that time together-gether also “hing” Britney Spears leh.. Got 1 song very sweet one by Britney Spears.. Title called “Lucky”..

      You know ahh, until now I still listen leh.. Sometimes in opit nothing much to do, I go to you-tube search this song and just listen lor.. The song got meaning one.. I like this part “If there is nothing, then why do these tears come”?

      I think I can relate la to this song.. Coz hor, sometimes I cry also when I can’t think of something or when I am sad or when my hormone imbalance la.. Aiya, you know la, woman !! Kan?

      Then my hubby said I got anxiety attack wor.. Wah, talk until like I’m chisin like that.. I don’t think it’s depression or anxiety attack la… But think think, “if there’s nothing, then why do these tears come”?

    8. Jimmy Lin? Then sure watch the show that he and his son in China commercial show, don't you?

      Delete
    9. Tadi at mamak la...now baru masuk opis ler

      After 12pm I gotyang punggung one...no need do anything punya Muhahahaha


      Yea....i like Jimmy Lin too especially his song Jiu Mong. Actually I wanted to taruk that song for the 10 song CD last yr that SK give but then I cant find it in Youtube. tarak tau how to search betul betul as most are in chinese.

      Eh you still remember the show by Hacken Lee, "Long Chok Futt Siew Yeh"? About him being a pampered rich guy suddenly got cut off by his rich family. That show also nice. That time his song very popular. One song very "peh" one...old song. That one really made me laugh. But ice. I wanted to find another song by him...it's about school punya. About school time how time flies and now see back school room...I have that cassette but now rosak liao la i think. was in the store room

      Comes to think of it...SK photo looks a bit like Hacken Lee la.

      Spicegirl tarak ngum me...that was after my time lo. Yea...Britney I also like...too bad about when she is adult. Getting too rich too famous too fast.

    12. Good morning bloggers! Oh this is Spring cleaning topics today. I still have a store room full of boxes unopened since I shifted house. They belong to my parents and they live with my brother instead. I look like a store keeper to them.

      Hoiii Ribbon Princess, what a heartless mouth you have to call SK a nerd in his own blog!!!! Aiyo if anyone calls me that, I would cry buckets of tears. I think I was worst than anyone else 20 years ago but I accept my weirdo looks.

    13. Elo TM... morning.. aiyo, lastime ma.. But now handsome leh..
      Now I see him I turned on wor.. He should be proud la..Some people I know, lastime punya face look more handsome/pretty/young than present leh.. But SK of coz terbalik lor.. Now he looks very yau-ying, fashionable and intellectual leh... Compliment lei ga..

    5. You also korek ah? Me also tarak korek yet. This year tarak spring cleaning langsung. Lazy la.

      Last time I have received postcards. some i still keep . Even those letters long long ones I also keep..that is till i move house lo. No energy to angkut leh. Wanna throw but sayang but then already know wont be digging back to read.

      But my most treasure one was from a newspaper columnist. He sent me a chapter of his short story before he pass away. sad.


      wow your school can buy all those ah? We dont have that but each year we have a Hari Pameran. Each society will have a room of its own and members decorate them . Then sell things from the room. I love the Hari Pameran.

      Hmm...last year i pindah rumah i managed to dig out some of the photos and colectible items from the store room. OMGH>..my photos then very "Peh" Cant see daylight punya leh. How come mouth senget here specs senget also can paste on library card one. Paiseh betul now

      Piak you la Princess...where got like hamsap lou. LOL. No la. That time it's kira as very "in" you know. Every monday in my school assembly there would be some guys with hair style like SK be selected by the Prefect for free hair trim by the Discipline Teacher under the tree leh.

      Hmm...Oh SK...this one is hairstyle when ah?1996 is still in school or out of school jor ah? If in school am surprise how come Head Boy can have long hair geh

      I think we ladies better not laugh at the guys leh coz during that time we also have funny hair style leh. My time was the Ladder step layer. Got friends kena tangkap for a free hair trim too. Then also the fringes long ones...also kena. You know last time very popular with long hair fringes that cover till nose geh. That time every one sporting hair pin lor during school session. after school straight all become half blind ...took out the pin and hair cover eyes LOL

      Delete
    6. Yah, their sell some of their handmade one to earn the money for their society!!!

      Hahaha, yah lo, I always wonder how they walk, since we can't see their eyes, then how their eyes able to see what's in front???

      Delete
    7. Meow, I’m laughing so loud now. I almost choke on my sweet la.. Now ahh, I’m munching on some soda peang and sweets..

      When I read the part where some boys will be selected for hair cut under the tree in front of the assembly, I almost choke to death on my sweet due to excessive laughing.. Padan muka those boys la.. “Ming ji” (already know) suring the assembly they will kena tangkap becoz of their hair style, they still wana go to school that day in that hairstyle meh.. They really berani mati one.. So after the hair kena trim, then how?

      Talking about trim hair, I remembered 1 case also.. I studied in a girl’s school ma.. So you know la, got a lot lesbians one ma.. Admire this that, lesbian this that..

      And so, there was this lesbo, colour her hair light brown wor, something like gold colour.. Her hair is very short, like boy’s hair.. But she covered up with tudung.. One day, I saw the discipline teacher, took out her tudung, forced her go to water pipe there and wash the hair colour leh.. I was thinking, if the hair colour was permanent, how to wash with water?

      Ok, talking about girl’s hair style pulak, lastime fringe cannot over the brows.. Some wana act cute, kan? And then, cannot cut layered hair.. If got long hair must ikat tocang ahh.. If cannot ikat tocang also have to kak-ngang ikat tocang..

      So for those layered hair one, there will be sisa sisa rambut out here & there rite, from the tocang.. The discipline teacher will also trim those excessive hair out wor.. Wah, spoilt lor the hair like that…

    9. woi./..non stop eating one ah... LOL

      My school very strict one...the hair at back cannot touch the colar and ear. If Prefect tarik and the hair touch color or ear then will get free hair trim...

      yeah my school also have those who color their hair and hide using tudung. Not sure what happen after that coz I tarak go kaypoh . Ask a lot later aku pulak yang kena...LOL

      My time got layer. as long as tarak sentuh colar. That time also very hing the V terbalik type of layer. When assemble, classmate with that hair style will tunduk their head a lot so that when prefect check the hair dont sentuh the colar :p

      Not head boy meh? i think he posted last time one school post about ketua pengawas or something

      Piak piak piak...no names calling here

      Then what ah..no then then la ...kena trim by the cikgu la. Cant remember whether kena fined or not.

    3. Mou kau chor!! second Not very interested in this topic, so no need comment lah about this one???


      Ching ching ching ching $$$$$$$$$ kaching wor......tak mau comment meh. At least now we know la he so rich then that he no need to worry about money. Money simply put also nevermind leh.

      Some more those notes nowadays will worth quite a lot leh. You go to Amcorp Mall flea market and "tah kar"..sure the amount will be higher.

      Even my RM5 with misprint already fetching rm15 to rm20 leh depending on condition of the note.

      I try make a practise of keeping one note when BNK decided to change the design. ...abet small notes like Rm1,RM2,RM5 RM10 la.

      Last time have the RM500 note right.. brown color...I tarak money to keep that. Otherwise I think now already worth RM1k or more lo

      Delete
    4. Aiiks, susah mau komen coz he travelled here there and collected notes.. I takut bikin malu ma.. I no go anywhere, so no collections of notes.. I been to Asia only la.. Like Bangkok, Krabi, Bandung, Bali, Taipei.. And paling jauh, Tokyo and Foshan, Guangzhou only... But I didn’t collect any notes la from any countries..

      Delete
    5. I try not keep all the left over notes from foreign countries except for Thailand, Taiwan, China and Japan as I would be going back again & again. I normally donated loose changes to beggars the last few days.

      Delete
    6. Anay good lah.

      I will use whatever left (especially the coins) at the airport and buy nonsense like sweets, candies or gum.

      Notes can bring back, later if rate go up only go and exchange it to RM lor....

    7. Meow,

    1. #4 – What cassette is that sin? Jacky Cheong cassette ahh?

      Delete
    2. I remembered when I was in form 1 or 2, I used to record songs into the cassette and then ask the uncle bus to put it on when I go up the school bus.. I took a school bus to school ger ma lastime..

      That time leh, already got CD’s (and CD player), but mostly, still “hing” cassette la.. So what I did was to choose and select songs that I like from different CD’s, then record it into the cassette.. All in one player.. Up part put CD.. Down part cassette ma.. So can just click “record” when the CD is playing to record into the cassette..

      Delete
    3. Let me try to remember that time I “hing” what song sin.. Gosh hard to remember.. But to name a few, I think I can distinguish a few:
      1) Truly Madly Deeply – Salvage Garden
      2) Zombie – The Cranberries
      3) Wannabe – Spicegirls
      4) Everybody – Backstreet Boys
      5) God Is A Girl – Unknown (sorry)
      Hehe, these are a few I can remember la that time..

    4. Piak .....but i bet if during 1996 time you would have gone ga-ga over him leh. Cannot think as of nowadays mah. Now talking about back in 1996 wor. nearly 20 yrs ago wor

      LOL....my time no CD yet ..my time have radio, reddifusion(?)(Lai Tak Fook Sing) and cassette player. Yeah we used to bring cassette and ask school bus uncle/auntie to play. Also when we wanna exchange cassette , we will leave it with the school bus or the canteen food vendors coz takut sport check lor

      Delete
    5. Yah, yah!!! I remember when we heard sport check, all my classmate will start to hide their stuffs, they can hide everywhere....some is above the fan, then they told the pengawas the fan is broken so can't on the fan!!! =.=!!!

      Delete
    6. Ooohh, now talking about sport check pulak yer? I remembered lastime ahh, they have gangs you know.. I mean in the pengawas group.. Like this gang and that gang.. Then the students will be fren fren and be close to 1 gang of pengawas lor.. Then when time for spot check, if kam ngam this fella kena, the pengawas will diam diam and buat tak nampak and let this fella go wor..

      Some fella I know, very close with the pengawas.. Then this pengawas will let out the news telling this fella that there will be a spot check when and when.. So this fella goes back to the class and tell others not to bring any “benda haram” to the class lor.. Like that wor..

      Then I also remember, lastime, very “hero” one you know if we are fren-fren with the pengawas.. Make us look like tai-ka-che.. If we fren fren with the pengawas, then nobody dare to gossip or bully us leh..

      People will think “eh, don’t play play with her, she very close fren with pengawas B”, like that.. kekekeke.. feel also yau-min a bit lor..

      Delete
    7. A lot like that la, the teachers just close one eye and open one eye only mah!!!

      Yah la, must be like mah, fren-fren with pengawas baru boleh dapat first news of sport check schedule, if not things kena rampas how??

      Hahaha, I heard those tai-ka-cue also, but I always have fren inside, so I never scared of them la!!!

      If we freely comment about people, we must also accept that people can freely comment about you.

      Right or not? Understood or not?

  6. nerd also nurd (nûrd)
    n. Slang
    1. A foolish, inept, or unattractive person.

    2. A person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits but is felt to be socially inept.

    Kesian SK got called a nerd so many times.

    That photos of his, we all look silly way back when. Unless you are are really handsome / gorgeous la...

    And I don't think SK is a nerd. He is clever but no way he is socially inept, online or offline.

    Cannot say the same about some people. ;-)

    1. SK is definitely smarter than Anay and many others. He got Bachelor and Master degrees with First Class Honours some more but diam diam like a humble pie! Wakakakaka

    2. Wow, First Class Honors, very geng lo, is not easy to get must maintain 3.95 above all the time I think, not everyone can do that, he must be super smart!!! =]

      Delete
    3. And please remember kids,being smart does not mean being a nerd. Don't say he is a nerd before we met him n get to know him better.

      All these talk about his appearance that are not complimentary can amount to cyber-bullying.

      Lucky SK is mature to know ppl are joking.

      You joke like this to a real nerd, who are not socially versed; later he come stalk you with a gun, how?

      Nerds, sorry. Just giving example.

    4. I'm not the one who said he's nerd.....never ever~~~~~~~I'm the one always kena said stupid, ugly, short, small eyes....so I know the feeling....and I would never ever criticize others appearance...................=[

    5. Not you la. I'm just saying in general since it seems to be the word of the day, today. ;-)

      Anyway, I agree with you. Never criticize about someone's appearance. It'll hurt even though they maybe too polite to tell you so. Right?

      Must think how we feel if someone else say it yo us.

      Delete
    6. 小影, being commented on our less-than-perfect appearance is sure isn't something that we can accept happily, right?

      I also hate it if people commented how my facial features are or how too skinny/fat I am.

      I also will never use deragatory word (even in jest) to people. That's so tactless and so uncaring of the other party's feeling.

      Delete
    7. To be honest, I don't care that much nowadays, I used to care a lot last time, since we can't stop what people say so then just let it be, because we've to release the anger and free yourself with forgiveness!!!

  7. #1 - I kept many old letters from 1976 until the 90s. I am crazy and should have thrown away the letters written a some crazy gals. It was all childish and kiddy talk but I thought it was worth keeping. Now I want to burn them of shred them away as they are collecting dusts. I think keeping postcards would be good and sentimental.

      I don't keep any. All I keep are the cards hubby and son gave to me.

    2. I used to keep letters from my pen friends too! But I decided to throw them all away one day cause they are just too many and they occupied like a few boxes of storage!
      But that doesn't mean I don't treasure what my pen friends sent, I remember them in my mind. Some still in touch now via Facebook, some, already lost contact many years ago :(

    3. Yah, those times pen friends very famous, I used to have couple of them but now all lost contact already......people nowadays use Facebook get to know people all around the world...I think no more pen friends already lo....

  10. #4 - Those cassette tapes really brought sentimental memories back! I didn't have many when I was young as I had no player of my own until I started working! My father bought the players for himself to listen so I had little chance to hear them in my own bedroom like you all lucky people. During my time, those cassette players cost a bomb!
    My old house was not far from the sea, so my tapes were often sticky with fungus!!! Adoi so sad!!

    1. Aiyoh, if Anay said the player cost a bomb, how la the rest of us feel.

  15. Good afternoon SK and guys!

    Hmm, I already 'back to work' since many days ago lo! Haha xD
    I think most people already back to work la, as I know many people start work on Monday, CNY this year is not really a good timing cause it falls on Friday, so basically people just rest for 3 days, Monday 'hoi gong' already, unless taking own annual leaves la! When did you resume working SK?

    1. Hmm, eve of CNY baru spring cleaning ar? Wah quite last minute wo! :p

      Anyway, let us talk about your lost and found items.
      Postcard, I used to send postcards to my friends too, but after that became lesser and lesser, cause of Internet, we send E cards more, haha xD
      But I myself still collecting postcards whenever I go oversea, all pinned up nicely at my mum's home =)
      Speaking of postcard, I remember a postcard which means so much to me when I was little. It's from my cousin all the way from Canada, I think I was just about 10 years old back then, that consider my first ever postcard, still keeping it in the store!

      Delete
    2. Wah the notes you kept in picture 2, must be very antique now! It's good to keep such items you know? Cause really memorable and now I think already 'extinct'. Who knows some times later people will offer very high price to buy from you? Then SK will become millionaire liao! xD

      Delete
    3. Those photos with the 'wow' hairstyle surely brings back a lot of memories huh? Hehe, center parting is the most common and perhaps the most 'in' hairstyle back then!
      Let me recall, I was with short hair (very tomboy look) once when I was in Form 2, I remember I din't like that look at all (too ugly I cannot show you all xD), the moment my aunty finished cutting my hair (yes, my aunty used to give us free haircut back then ^^), I told myself to never cut short hair ever!! That's why I keep long hair til now!

    4. And a music cassette!! Wow, really antique! I don't think I have that already now... But I did keep a video tape at home, it's the video of me performing a pom pom dance when I was in kindergarten ;) Wonder if it's still functioning? Don't know the film got 'fat mou' already or not? xD
      Yours got 'fat mou' ar?

      But even if my video tape still functioning, I also don't have the video tape player lo! :(

      Nonetheless, I will still that video tape, plan to show my kids in the future, lalalala~ :p

    5. By the way, when I read the title 再度重遇, I thought you bumped into someone you used to know tim! xD
      Anyway, it is interesting to read about all these old items which you treasured a lot, thanks for sharing with us ya!
      See if time permits, I will do something similar at my blog too! ^^

  25. Very very shame to admit, I didn't do any spring cleaning. I only house kept my wardrobe and my girls' wardrobe.Because I bought too many clothes, i needed to give away some old one and then only have space to put in new one. You know what I mean, I am sure.
    Spring cleaning job was done by my Jin Jin. He is one tidy person like you, SK. I am you the spring cleaning job had brought back your nostalgic.
