Daily Challenge asked me what were three small things that made me really happy as a child or teenager. Hhhmmm....
I really can’t remember much about what I liked as a child but as a teenager, I can. DUH. I am becoming senile.
Anyway, here are the three things.
1. TV shows and Singing
Yes, even as a child, my first love was singing. I remember my mom had this Teresa Teng cassette (yes, for music, back in those days, we have CASSETTES, not CDs) and I remember memorizing most of the songs from very young onwards, without knowing what they meant. I don’t speak Mandarin, that’s why.
TV shows, for very obvious reasons. I remember shows like McGyver, Knight Rider, Gem the cartoon, Care Bears, Tron, Thunder Cats, She-ra…etc. OMG. I am OLDDDDDDD!!!!!!!
2. Sports and dancing
I was completely into sports. Netball, basketball, handball, badminton, squash….so much so that I would make a piece of charcoal ashamed of its color. Dancing is the same thing. Music is in my blood. For some reason, even when I wasn’t too good a dancer, I was selected as the cheerleader caption. I don’t even know some of the cheerleaders well, in fact, but since they chose me, might as well. Looking back, our cheerleading moves were lame as hell compared to the kind of moves that they do at cheerleading competitions these days. Ours were L.A.M.E. So lame that I don’t want to talk about it.
3. It said there small things, right? OK, fine. My comb.
This is embarrassing but let me explain why I love my comb. Well, I loved my comb and my mirror. After saying it here, I am gonna make a run for it and end the blog post, OK?
I use the comb as a mic in front of the mirror to give my thank you speech.
