Play-Doh is probably one of the few brands that has managed to transcend from one generation of children to another. At some point in most of our lives, I’m sure Play-Doh made the birthday or Christmas wish list. I know this was my case, and now my children’s!
With this year being Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, I thought about how some things that are uniquely Singapore (to me, at least!) managed to withstand the test of time and continue to be a common sight in our lives, regardless of which generation we’re from.
And these are the things that immediately spring to mind!
Kopi-O with You Tiao
Ever since I was a little girl, I would see elderly uncles (usually) enjoy their morning cup of black coffee with a stick of fried fritter dipped into it. And now, when I’m all grown up, I still see elderly uncles having this for breakfast!
I haven’t tried this combination yet, cos I’m not really a black coffee drinker, but I do love a bowl of soy beancurd to go with my fried fritter!
Paddle Pop Ice Cream
Paddle Pop. WOW! Paddle Pop. YEAH! Super duper YUMMY!
Most from my generation will probably know that little number (are you singing it now? Hehe!), and while that song can no longer be found anywhere (I tried looking… I really did!), this super duper yummy ice cream can still be found everywhere in Singapore and enjoyed by people from all ages!
The $1 Ice Cream
This is probably the one thing that isn’t hit with inflation through the years (but then again, $1 was a lot in the past…). I can’t remember it being sold at any other price, even till this very day!
The Ice Cream uncles used to be a common sight in neighbourhoods (still makes a daily appearance in mine!), with their motorcycle and mobile freezer parked outside schools or at any open spaces between housing blocks, ringing their bells to announce their arrival. Now, however, they’re more commonly found along the stretch of Orchard Road.
Just looking at these make me want to have a bite of the fried fritter, Paddle Pop and $1 ice cream, even though I know I made them using Play-Doh! Please excuse me while I go hunt some of these down to munch on.
While waiting for my return, why not join the…
