TO ALL THE THOSE

WHO WERE BORN IN THE 50's, 60's and 70's

Music: Those were the days

Show: Created by Henry

slide2

First, we survived with mothers who had no maids. They cooked /cleaned while taking care of us at the same time.

slide3

They took aspirin, candy floss, fizzy drinks, shaved ice with syrup and diabetes was rare. Salt added to Pepsi or Coke was remedy for fever.

slide4

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets.

slide5

As children, we would ride with our parents on bicycles/ motorcycles for 2 or 3. Richer ones in cars with no seat belts or air bags.

slide8

We would spend hours on the fields under bright sunlight flying our kites, without worrying about UV rays which never seem to affect us.

slide9

We go into the jungle to catch spiders without worries of Aedes mosquitoes.

slide10

With mere 5 pebbles (stones) would be a endless game. With a ball (tennis ball best) we boys would ran like crazy for hours.

slide11

We caught guppy in drains / canals and when it rained we swam there.

slide12

We shared one soft drink with four friends from one bottle and NO ONE actually worry about being unhygenic.

slide13

We ate salty, very sweet & oily food, candies,bread and real butter and drank very sweet soft drinks, sweet coffee/ tea, ice kachang, but we weren't overweight because......

slide14

WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, till streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.

slide15

We would spend hours repairing our old bicycles and wooden scooters out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

slide16

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, multiple channels on cable TV, DVD movies, no surround sound, no phones, no personal computers, no Internet. WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

slide17

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and we still continued the stunts.

slide20

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

slide21

Yet this generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

slide22

The past 40 years have been an explosion of innovation

and new ideas.

slide23

We had freedom,

failure, success and responsibility,

and we learned

slide24

HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!

And YOU are one of them!

slide25

CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the government regulated our lives for our own good.

slide26

And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were.
