Extreme fun with Watergun

Every kid during the 90’s had his or her own share of gunfights.

What? Yeah! Gunfights! WATER GUN FIGHTS! We just loved the thrill of hiding and shooting our opponents till they get soaked by our high-powered water guns!

During my younger days, I can still remember how me and my “playmates” bragged about how strong, big, and colorful our waterguns were! Unfortunate kids who had water pistols in a “water gun fight” were like poor defenseless lambs sent in a den of lions. Just imagine how they got soaked with the big water guns and how they ran home to their mommies (and got spanked because they were soaking wet).

MR. BOGUS!

Mr. Bogus…eeew.

You guys still remember the yellow gremlin-like creature living in the walls of the suburban home of Tommy Anybody?? Its MR. BOGUS!! This wacky character surfed around and fought the “dust bunnies” in Tommy’s kitchen or in Mr. Bogus’ alternate world called the “Bogusland”! Wacky ain’t it?

He’s like today’s Spongebob. Methinks.

Glico’s by Ron

Awesome rides, exciting video games, and a great eexperience…you guys still remember that ultra cool and ultra fun place at the Glorietta named Glico’s? Yeah, that’s right! That place where most of us grew up playing and enjoying the former amusement/thempark inside a mall. Glico’s was one of the places where kids during that time would literally enjoy themselves. The trademark of Glico’s was its school bus and the mini roller coaster. The coaster was small but riding it still gives you goosebumps. The arcade area was also an attraction for teenagers and kids alike.

Glico’s Logo

Another memorable thing about Glico’s was that cool drink with dry ice and a fancy straw. Almost every kid in Glico’s would be seen holding this fun drink. Of course Glico’s has now closed down. I think Timezone has replaced Glico’s in a way. Some malls in the Philippines continue the Glico’s tradition by having amusement parks in malls. The names that come to mind are Whimsy’s and Robinson’s Dreamscape.

Page Me

            Beep Beep Beep Beep!!!

“Wait bro, my mom paged me and reminded me to call her later when I get home! This is just one of the cool lines one could ever utter during the elementary days. Having a pager/beeper was a feat at some point during our elementary days. Whether it was Easycall or PocketBell, it really didn’t matter as long as you had this really hip thing hanging on your belt, (but I think EasyCall was the better one).

I can still remember mine; it was a small pager with a transparent casing with a gold chain serving as its strap on device. Mine was also the envy of my classmates since it had more beeping tones and a mini game! Theirs didn’t!

 

Can anyone still remember how to page? Here’s how: Dial 141 or 114 (depending on your service provider) then the pager number then a call center agent would answer, you can now dictate your message! Remember short messages only! Having a pager also means that you also must have your handy fonkard or your pentagon shaped two peso coin so you can easily reply by calling the one who paged you! Ain’t it easy? By remembering the past, we learn to appreciate the things we have now that we normally take for granted such as the small rectangular thing we bring daily, our cell phones.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers!

  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]

  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
