Daddy Jun was finishing another assignment last night for his Marketing Management class this Saturday. He asked me about products that are not in the market right now. And nostalgia began...
I had to consult Ralph's bible (Bob Ong's "Bakit Baligtad Magbasa ang Mga Pilipino") once in a while to refresh my memory.
Pepsodent. Come on, don't tell me you didn't use that as a kid! Sarap ng bubble gum flavor niyan 'no! There were even campus tours when I was in Kinder where the giant Pepsodent mascot teaches kids how to brush their teeth and sings " Taas baba... paikot-ikot!".
Kung fu shoes. Hehehe... my sister and I used this during our elementary days. We were bought those probably because they're cheaper. Plus, I think we needed those especially in the flooded street of San Marcelino. Which reminds me... we had a grand time, then, swimming in the waist-deep flood! Batang Maynila 'to!
Ola. "Ola, ola, pinong panglaba." I can still sing that commercial jingle up to now. Pink na detergent ito at gamit lagi ni Ate Net sa paglalaba. O sige na nga, pati ako naglalaba din. True to its claim, it's good for delicate hands. Bango pa.
Betamax and Atari. Actually, we didn't have these while growing up. Nakikinood lang kami sa kapitbahay naming si Jopee. Hindi kawalan sa buhay bata at busy kami nood sa patintero, taguan, 5-10, at tumbang preso. Now, at least, we can afford to have our own home theater system.
And the list can go on forever....
Nakaka-miss ang mga ito. Or am I really missing my childhood.
Ang sarap kasi noon na wala kang pino-problema kundi ang ulam na hindi mo gusto at si Auntie Ining, ang terror na hindi-ka-patatawarin-pag-hindi-ka-natulog-ng-hapon mong tagapag-alaga. Minsan problema din noon pag nag-away kami ng kalaro ko noong si Shylyn. And when this happens, kampihan na yan. Kami ni Ate Do, sila ni Ever. Hmmm... nasaan na kaya sila? Mahanap nga sa Friendster.
Ngayon, si Rap, solved na na walang kalaro. Basta makapag-millberry.com at neopets pag Saturday ok na. If ever naman na maglaro siya with other kids, iba na ang games nila. Payabangan na kung sino ang may PSP o wala. Hindi na uso yung Monkey-monkey at Tex.
Umamin ka na, lumaki ka rin noong Eighties. Miss mo no?Tag/s: nostalgia Read more on this entry...
