Piggy Bank Containers

   Posted by: CK Lam

Almost every child has a ‘piggy bank’ when they were young. Money were kept in these containers with a slot for dropping coins. These containers which were pre-dominantly used by children back then; comes in different figures, shapes, sizes and colours.Nowadays people find it a bit troublesome and wasteful using these type of ‘piggy bank’ because it needs to be broken up in order to retrieve the money. It starts to phase out slowly. User friendly containers made of plastic and tins have gradually replaced these breakable ones.

As a child, I used to have a ‘piggy bank’ in the shape of a chicken. I am pretty sure you have one too when you were young. It would be nice if you can share your nostalgic stories with me!

Calling all Trans fans. Transformers are BACK…

Many of us grow up with the Transformers cartoon show back in the 80’s. As in all shows, there are always the good guys (Autobots) and the bad (Decepticons)
The popularity of the cartoon show was followed up with the release of books and toys which were selling like hotcakes. The song was great, and will remain in my head for a long long time. The band that did the opening theme was Lion. – Catch the video on : www.youtube.com/watch?v=78wVA1E661E

Having two boys, I also bought the toys and watched most of the cartoon shows with them. After a lapse of twenty years, my two boys have already grown up and there are some toys left behind that  are still in good condition. Ended up keeping these only lo..
