How Old Are You Tag

Egghead, and Fantasyflier tagged me on this to find out which era I was from, here is the content of the tag 1. Name one of the actor of the old days that you missed the most ~ Danny Chan (陈百强) 2. Name a cartoon of the old old days ~ Smurf!! 3. Name a singer/group of the old days ~ Liu Wen Zheng (刘文正) 4. Band of the old days ~ Anzenchitai (安全地带). ~ When I started listening to English songs, I just love Depeche Mode (still do). 5.TV Series of the old days ~ 星星知我心 (Xin Xin Zhi Wo Xing - some sob stories), 网中人(Man In the Net - Chow Yuen Fat debut!). Used to watch with my mum, dabbing our tears occassionally, and sometimes she got so carried away, she totally forgotten about preparing dinner! 6. Actress of Old Days ~ Cherie Chung Chor-Hong (钟楚红) 7. Fashion of Old Days that you miss the most ~ I remembered the beggers out fit, the shoulder pads, but I don't really miss them, I think they were ugly (although back then, I too wore them to be fashionable). 8. Movie of Old Days ~ An Autumn's Tale (秋天的童话) 9. Music Video of Old Days ~ Must be Micheal Jackson's Thriller, I guess. MTV wasn't popular for Chinese songs yet. 10. Coolest Song of Old Days ~ That's What Friends Are For (Elton John and Friends) Come to think of it, I was so Chinese huh? In fact, I was so Chinese that my siblings teased me and called me a communist (They were all sent to English schools while I went to a Chinese school). I'll have to list 3 people to pass this tag on (you are not obligated, just do it if you feel like it). - Twin (must be very young huh you, even though you have 2 kids?) - Mr Cocka Doodle (which cockeral era did you come from) - YL (you must be very very young) Normally I will tag Helen but I'll spare her so that she can concentrate on finding out the true identity of this man.

wahhh... you're the 3rd person (that I've come across doing this meme) who mentioned Michael Jackson's Thriller. heheheh! It's a pretty funky MTV, I must say...

sesame said...

Hey, I like Danny Chan the singer (I cannot see the Chinese characters so not sure if it's the same person). I like Cherie Chung too! But if I were to name an old actress, I would name Zhen Zhen of the 70s. (my favourite)

L B said...

No Agnes Chan?

Peter said...

Those good old days...

Fantasy "Sticky" Flier said...

Hey whatever happen to Cherie? I think I can learn more chinese from you Z! I a bit ang moh kang tang (English Potato) be ny sifu can? please please?

maria @ twinsmom said...

gosh... we have the similarity -- being called communist, because of chinese educated.

TWO LITTLE FELLAS said...

i think it's great to know chinese characters...at least you can read chinese newspapers and all those paparazzi magazines...

Zara's Mama said...

May,
It was the only big budget MTV during those time. :(

Sesame,
Yes, that's the same person. Poor him huh? Die at such a young age. Wow, who's Zhen Zhen? You caught me there. :(

LB,
Wow, Agnes' Chan was my uncle's time woh? When I was 5 or 6, he used to play her record when I went to visit him.

Peter,
Yes, good old days..

Fantasyflier,
Haha, can.. but.. my husband is also learning (he's also banana), but I'm not his teacher b'cos he said I'm too fierce and no patience.. *GROWL*

Maria,
You also kena? Your siblings are English educated?

domestic rat said...

At first I thought you were referring to the Korean 秋天的童话, the one that sent every breathing female weeping for hours.

L B said...

er, well, I was about 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or 9 or 10 too...... maybe 11..

Helen said...

LOL.. I know everyone you mentioned, so, I guess we are from the same era. Hmm that make us about 25 or 26?? **sshhhhh**

Yeah, I love Cherrie Chung . Danny Chan sang the saddest songs. I was with a bf in KL during that era and he would play Danny over and over again. lol Whenever I hear Danny's song on the radio, I will automatically think of my old bf. Hope he is well. I know he now has a shop in Campbell... one of these days I think I'll just pop over and give him a surprise. (the last i heard, he's still single)lol

On second thought, maybe I ought to lose some weight before i face him. Don't want to spoil the beautiful memory I left behind, right??

Depeche Mode?? I remember this song I like called People Are People...Oh, by the way, you left out Duran Duran and Boy George!!

Kampungkai said...

wah, super-duper old school wey. I'm definitely not from the 60-80s. me 1984 boy, only know New Kids On The Block at that time hahaha! memories does give us a good laugh...

jazzmint said...

wah..i'm a fan of danny chan too..infact still has the mp3 kekeke...

man in the net!! that was the first series i watch on tv3 kakaka

earthember said...

I'm also from the same era. I can identify everything you mentioned. Men in the Net was a classic one. I love Depeche Mode too. Those were the days ....

Egghead said...

thought you said you were not gonna do it? :P
glad you did it though :)

Zara's Mama said...

Two Little Fellas,
The sad thing is, my Chinese has deteriorated so much reading and Chinese is very stranuous for me. But it sure help to speak to the Taiwanese and the Chinese colleagues. They immediately warm towards you when you speak Mandarin.

Domestic Cat,
Haha.. I'd actually never watched any Korean series before. Wow, a series that made all females who watched it cry? Maybe I should try and get a copy and watch huh?

LB,
Doing some maths there huh? 11 is not too bad. :P

Helen,
Yeah.. 25, 26 loh, about there.
Maybe you shld tell me how he looks like, your ex. I can go check out for you, see if loosing weight is worthwhile. For all you know, he looks like King Kong now, except maybe he's botak. LOL
Boy George and Duran Duran didn't really appeal to me, but I like Spandau Ballet though, my bro's (the King) influence.

Kampungkai,
Wah.. 'sai meng' huh?

Jasmine,
But you are very very much younger than me woh. How come?

e*ember,
haha, you too in the same era. We all started with Men In the Net huh? Look at the variety they have now today.. I can't even catch up.

egghead,
