Childhood memories.

Looking at the above photograph, I cannot imagine such young child could be playing with this toy...a flip phone. Today all children are pampered with all sort of toys and games. You name them and they would have them! Not my childhood days! We had to self make our own toys and games. I remembered we made our playing guns out from wood, our toy trains were actually empty cigarette packets, the blowing horns were made from leafs, we caught fighting fishes from the ponds, excitement from the killer spiders caught in the jungle, we learned our swimming from the unused tin mines and we move around with our bicycles all the time.

Yes! Those natural things we did as a child then, made us to be strong, independence and creative. We were never afraid to strive alone in the unknown, we explored and ventured to new discoveries, and survived with whatever we had. Sad to say, our children of today are deprived of what I had. Whether the past or the present was better is debatable..but I still prefer my past childhood which made me of what I am today.

One friendly advice to the parents, flip phones can cause very serious effects to the reproductive development of young children. Please keep them out of reach to children.

I wonder if this child is going to be into the S&M Sexual Lifestyle when he is older? Ouch!

But, on the other hand, I think kids are extremely spoiled these days with all the toys. I was relieved when I talked to my mom the other day and my nephew was playing in a big box that my parents' new cabinet came in. He was pretending it was a fort... so I guess imagination is still there if we (the adults) allow them to exercise their minds!!!
