There were other things that I unearthed when clearing out my room besides my cassettes.
If I do throw them out someday, at least I know I have immortalised them in my blog and when the world ends leaving the Internet the only soul survivor, this post could be part of lost history.
When you have 134 cassettes, you'd need to lug your walkman when you're in the bus or when you want to look less like a dork walking the streets alone.
2. Old magazines. Like, ANCIENT
They're Singaporean magazines as I thought Galaxie was too thin and Smash Hits became unbearably expensive.
ETC mags were pretty wicked.
And of course, mags that make me go "What the fuck were you thinking?"
And the cassette. I was a huge fan of wrestling and extremely deluded that everything was real. You have no idea how dumb I feel right now.
And piles and piles of magazines since 2003.
I donated a few bundles to a salon nearby and the rest to the Tzu Chi Foundation.
3. Platform sneakers
This was how much the Spice Girls influenced my life. And they were really rad last time. I'm keeping this for any 90's themed or Halloween party.
4. Colossal mobile phones
Well this is actually my dad's. But when compared to the latest-but-quite-outdated phone, you gotta be impressed with its evolution.
Especially the batteries.
Way back then the batteries were half of the phone themselves. Amazing, huh? And last time, they didn't use sim cards. I have no fucking idea how it worked last time. Just incredible. I feel young again.
5. Old DVD collections
Well, they aren't exactly ancient, but who buys DVDs now when there are torrents practically flooding the Internet? And yes, I have all 10 seasons of Friends.
For those who don't know, I WAS a graceful little ballerina. I swear I didn't steal this from a poor little girl. And I'm keeping this as a reminder that I was once a graceful, poised little girl. And no, I can't do the splits anymore. It would be an awesome bedroom move if I still could. Maybe it's not to late to continue...
People, what are you gonna do to your vintage stuffs?
