Top Ten Things Simon Does NOT Miss From The 80’s

Top Ten Things Simon Does NOT Miss From The 80’s (But he remembers a lot of other good things…):

  • Secondary school.

  • Koir RTM singing something about good behaviour everyday before the 8pm news.

  • Shoulder pads.

  • Cumi dan Ciki.

  • Death-defying minibuses ruling the roads in KL.

  • Janet Ambrose.

  • Crappy local TV stations.

  • Margaret Thatcher.

  • 6 hour journey from JB to KL on the trunk road.

  • Radio Pendidikan.

Back to main page.


  • Haha. Good one! Aiyo, Janet Ambrose - the only one who loves her own voice and irritating laughter. A key example of what not to do if you are a deejay.

  • Ei, fren, I am also very much an 80s person but I don't have the faintest idea what is cumi dan ciki leh? Shoulder pads, I got loads.

  • anjali - janet ambrose thinks she's so funny. Kind of link Richard on the morning show. I really wish Shazmin would just give him a tight slap.

    5xmom - there used to be this local kiddie puppet show by Wazata Zain, one was a butterfly, the other i can't remember. there was a hippo, too.

    i just googled it and apparently drliew blogged about it too!

  • Hahahhaha.... Cumi dan Ciki indeed. But I'd take those over that A-L-O-N-G freak any day! I'd even take them over Janet Ambrose. Hahahahhhahaha!!!!

  • Simon,
    I google and check out that cumi dan ciki and rank arena TV (also never heard before) on doc's blog. Wah, that old doc really can write sejarah. But he is not old in real life la.

  • cumi and ciki???
    shoulder pads?? for what? i thought people only use knee pads and elbow pads; for rollerblading..
    maybe i'm not old enough to remember those kind of things :P

  • mom22beas - yeah come to think of it... i think it was a monkey.

    james - i remember the show was pretty crap, but we had nothing else to watch!

    5xmom - speaking of writing sejarah... remember 'hari ini dalam sejarah'?

    yuin - maybe one day RTM might release 'cumi & ciki' on DVD then we can watch again...!

    wildcharm - in my brother's time they had this class where brought a old junk radio and the class just listened to radio pendidikan...

    my time got tv pendidikan alreday...but it was not much better.

  • What do you mean you don't miss mini-buses? They were the KINGS of the ROAD! Better than any Sunway Lagoon roller-coaster... ;)

  • i remember cumi and ciki. it was a butterfly and a monkey. that's right simon, his name was wazata zain. i forgot how good it is to say that name.

    eh what about those monyet and buaya and sang kancil cartoons? you know the one from filem negara? i remember one where the monyet was so degil and wanted to eat the chillies,and he said, aku tak peduli, aku nak jugak, aku nak jugak. that was funny....

  • sashi - yeah i feel i need insurance everytime i board one!!

    mudslinger - "jangan monyet, jangan..." "Nak jugak!"
