Reminiscing the Older Days

Those born in the 1970s and 1980s will remembered those older days where stuffs were simply tastier and more affordable, even though they are harder to use and cost way more expensive than their modern predecessors..

Let us take some time to reminisce the good old days..


Flavored Ice Tubes

Kids love these home-made flavored ice tubes, which are actually diluted syrups filled into small plastic bag and tied with rubber band.

Flavors include sour plum, lime, milk and even fizzy sodas, etc.


Super Elastic Bubble Plastic Tube

Super elastic bubble plastic is a tube of filled with plastic substance and a thin straw is used to blow semi-solid bubbles.

A pea-sized amount of liquid plastic was squeezed from the tube and made into a ball. Kids will then insert a straw into the ball and blow into it, inflating it even further. The bubble could then be removed from the straw by pinching the hole closed, sealing the air inside..



Typewriter is the ancestor of modern computer!

A cloth-ribbon with ink is inserted into it, and users are required to use some decent force to press the letter keys, in order to imprint the letters with ink and onto the paper..

Most users will remember getting their fingers stuck in between the gaps of the keys, really a painful and unpleasant experience!


Rotary Dial Telephone

Rotary dial telephone is one of the oldest and reliable landline telephone around, have you ever wonder how it works?

On the rotary dial, the digits are arranged in a circular layout so that a finger wheel may be rotated with one finger from the position of each digit to a fixed stop position, When the finger released, during this return rotation, the dial interrupts the direct current of the line with a specific number of times for each digit and thereby generates pulse which the telephone exchange decodes into each dialed digit, thus able to make a call..


VHS Cassette and Rewinder

VHS – Video Home System, was a standard for consumer-level analog video recording on tape cassettes. Developed by Victor Company of Japan (JVC) in the early 1970s.

While the VHS cassettes bring lots of entertainments to us, most of us will remember a time when the VHS player was unable to rewind, as such, we will need a separate cassette rewinder machine to do the job..


Sewing Machine

Who can forget the sound of these vintage manual sewing machines?

Many will remembered their mother used to spent endless times on these machines, tailoring lots of beautiful masterpieces on it..


Is there any other old stuffs you wish to share with us?
