我的小叮当

我原来以为芭比娃娃不属于我那个年代,可是与我年龄相仿的朋友在部落格上写说,她在七岁那年拥有了第一个芭比娃娃,我就知道,芭比娃娃不是不存在于我的年代,她只是不存在于我的世界。

我成长的世界没有精致的玩意儿,我们只有“豹虎”(黑色的小蜘蛛也)、以小果子作子弹的木头枪、橡树籽、“棺材纸鹞”、粉笔、纸公仔和塑胶小叮当公仔。我们用废纸制造长方形的“棺材纸鹞”在马路上乱窜,满足于短暂的低空飞行;我们用粉笔在洋灰地上画自己心目中的公主和王子,创造童话般的梦想;我们化身小小的小叮当,占用家中的一块小地方,走路、说话、生活。

小叮当是随50仙一盒的巧克力附送的,有几个颜色、七八类造型。那是我小时候最长命的玩具,玩了好久好久都仍旧觉得好好玩。

其实小叮当不是什么特别的玩具,他们只不过是指头般大的塑胶小人,说话、走路、思考,都要主人代劳。玩法嘛,不过就一个人操作一个小叮当家庭,负责为每个小叮当设计屋子、走路、说话、吃饭,到时到候宣布“五年过去了”,继续过五年后的日子。没有玩伴的时候,我喜欢自己窝着玩小叮当。

伯伯会问:“阿思怎么总是自己说话的?”伯伯不知道,不是阿思自己跟自己说话,是小叮当们在对话。小叮当生活在楼板上;生活在没有芭比娃娃的世界尽头;生活,在乡野的80年代,我的童年。

注:刊登在《东方日报》我的〈晒网打鱼〉专栏的这篇文章,“小叮当”变成了“哆拉A梦”。我特地在文章起首告诉负责的助编“请别帮我把‘小叮当’变成‘哆拉A梦’”,岂知弄巧反拙,对方把这段文字看成“请帮我把‘小叮当’变成‘哆拉A梦’”,因此,我的小叮当就变成哆拉A梦了。唉唉。

是不是那种20仙一个的蓝色盒子?
我小时候也很爱这些小盒子里面的惊喜@@

找到有共同记忆的人了!就是那种蓝色的小叮当盒子,一开始好像是20仙的,后来起价到30仙,再后来就变成50仙了。

好怀念喔。。。。。。

我是佩佩 said...

好妒嫉喔....

其实,后来我会去想:记忆中的童年快乐,也许不是玩具,只是时光远去,一切都被美化了。

嗯……

你同是七字辈的吗?

奇怪,我身边八字辈的学弟学妹好像都不知道有“小叮当”这种东西。

是的,小叮当今天变成了哆拉A梦,小叮当的年代是一去不复返了。但是在我的心目中,小叮当永远是小叮当。德志,我生在七十年代的尾巴,我是羊。

Cheers to the 70's..80's babies...
WE RULE THIS WORLD !

--> You grew up watching He-man, Transformers, Thundercats, Silver Hawk, Space Cop Gaban, Ultraman, and Mighty Mouse.
Not to forget, Ninja Turtles, Mask and Smurfs too.

--> You grew up brushing your teeth with a mug in primary school after recess time. You squatted by a drain with all your classmates beside you, and brushed your teeth with a colourful mug.
Remember the days when the school nurse comes with a list for the dentist appointments, the sound of the drilling when your friend has a fill in his tooth.

--> You remember the packets of milk (Projeck Susu Segar) and milo we get in primary school to encourage us to drink more milk. And when we had to line up just to get one cup, and some of us would line up again for another cup of cold milo. And remember we use to buy susu sekolah and get stomach-ache the next day.

--> During primary (some KBSR & 3M) school days, the teacher will punish you using a long ruler to hit your palm. A bowl of noodle soup cost only 40c in primary school days. When you were in primary school, girls like to go to the bookshop to buy cute stuff such as animal erasers, sharpeners, notebook etc. Play with these paper doll... with all the paper clothes.. etc secondary (some KBSM) school, girls go to the library to borrow their favourite romance storybook.

--> In secondary school, girls altered their school skirt to shorten it and guys will go to the school appointed school uniform tailor shop to tailor make their school trousers to the then fashionable "baggy pants" , or the GQ one with all the 'batik' or buckle at the edge of the pocket! the straight cut jeans.. or codroy...

--> In secondary school days, you buy the Bata BM Turbo school shoes. Some guys like to wear those china made ankle high shoes. Some even like to wear those very thick socks with their school shoes. Remember the panda, carefree or warrior shoes.. :)

--> Internet? E-mail? What the hell is that? So you thought a decade or more ago. Your friends don't have pagers or handphones in school. CDs? What's that? Cassette tapes were the norm. Movie tickets used to cost less than $5 last time.

--> There is no KLCC.. Pertama or Bukit Bintang. The only place we have The goodies from Mamak shop used to be Mamee, Ka ka, Kum Kum, Ding Dang choco balls (with toys in the box) + the mat sentul voices as a jingle, colourful hard "egg", "cigerette" chocolate, pink bottle of bubbles, and small tubes with yellow sticks to blow "more lasting" bubbles that you can pop more air in or slam it on. You never forget 'Ti Kam'.

--> When exams are over, the board games (eg: UNO, Monopoly, CLUEDO) & hand held video games will be all over the class room. Girls will start playing 'batu seremban'. guys with 'tudung botol oren'

--> Your favourite sound is the bell! For it's the homemade ice cream man. The cream that tops Haagan Dazs! The pink colour ice-cream with eyes plus a wide smile. Another bell is the recess bell, a time to get away from schoolwork and to eat. Another time when there is no bell but all guys will anxiously wait for it...The PJ, PE time (time for football)

--> Your favourite childhood games were playing "guli" (marbles), five stones, zero-point, catching, and/or "Pepsi-Cola one two three"! The best thirst quencher of all times is the yummy colourful ice tubes you can buy from provision shops. To eat them, break the tab and suck while holding the freezing tube!

--> All gals had Barbie dolls, My Little Pony, pound puppy, Polly Pocket and etc, while all boys had star wars figurines or a rubber band catapult that shoots folded paper or eraser bits. Once was the era whereby ice-cream sticks were valuable items, than came the paper aircrafts, chalk fights.

--> Everyone envied the class monitor and his assitant, cos they were the ones who came up with the daily duty roster, giving names to teacher on who makes the most noise and who's running around the class. The elite group are the prefects, the one with license to move around, they consider themselves above the law when not many students actually listened to them, and that's when the PK HEM comes in.

--> Some boys made their own guns from wood,and used 'Bacali' as the bullets. Some even used matches to shoot and burn kids'lanterns during Latern Festival.. and you also rather to 'ponteng sekolah' just to watch final episod of Moero Attack .. miss that much.. summersault berkembar... hehehe.. still remember this one...

Those old days !

我还是比较喜欢称那个拥有百宝袋的机械人为小叮当。小叮当永远都是我们心中的梦吧!
