in the era of cassette tape

after saying *hello* and *see-you-again* to my girls,
i moved on to see what else could i find in my old room.

inside the cupboard underneath the TV, is my little MUSIC world.
CDs, mini-CDs (i almost forgot there used to be those mini-CDs... ),
and cassette tapes!  so old~school and vintage like!  
i was trying to look for my favorite tape.  the one from Danny Chan...
but i couldn't find it.
what i found, amongst other tapes, were:


* quite a few tapes recorded by sabe...  
it all came back to me that we used to record and exchange tapes with one another...  cos we have limited pocket money back in our high-school days, we needed to make the most use out of them and to leverage from one another, i.e. each got tapes from different singers and then recorded for the other.  so clever!  haha...


* akina nakamori is one of my favorite singers...  got quite a number of her tapes.
i took the above back home (yeah, i still have a cassette tape player)... i missed her voice and songs...
back in those days, her voice was considered as "one of its kind" cos she does not have those typical "high pitch" voice...  hers is deeper and mellow
* BUT, it turned out that the tape player wasn't really ready to function.... it almost "ate" my tape!  gosh... luckily i saved the tape... but have broken the tape player......................  
* FIN:

* where is she now????

and, i still don't know where did that Danny Chan's tape go??
the first track of that tape is my favorite Danny Chan's song:
* one of those teenage kicks ~~~ dreaming that one day he could become my boyfriend... how silly.... those were the days.

sabe ~ but i didn't think your handwriting has changed much! you remember we always say that your handwriting does not match with your look? the letters you wrote are so big and round as opposed to the "pencil" look real you! while mine is the opposite: small letters but a big real me! hahahaha
