70/80s kids love these frizzy drinks.. even kids today too..

The “Dragon” playground was so popular with the 70/80s kids, that HDB (Housing Development Board) decides to build the same playground at many other HDB estates..

Not only that, due to the demand, lots of budget was spent on the creative design of these playground, in making them fun and safe for children to play at, also at the same time, able to blend with the surrounding.

During the old days, there was no internet or much TV shows for children, so kids love to go out and indulged in simple and improvised games, such as marbles, 5-stones, zero-point and catching, etc..

Exactly at 6:00pm.. kids will normally end their “outdoor activity” and run back home to watch their favourite cartoon series on TV..

It’s a good move by local television station during those days, as it served as reminder for children to come back home for dinner, as there was no mobile phone available 🙂
