I stumbled upon this picture while clearing out boxes of old stuff. Thought of The Pleasure Monger’s entry on kids and telephones.
That’s me at my very first home, a kampong house at Yio Chu Kang Road. The inflatable rabbit toy is larger than me! And check out that old dial telephone. I remember that I loved dialing the numbers just for fun. I also realised that the telephone was sitting on a bowling trophy and I have no idea who it belonged to. Did you notice that I had my legs crossed stylishly? I bet it was my Dad’s idea.
Dad was always putting me in funny stuff and taking pictures. Like this:
