You buy everything and anything except... well, books.

There's always that one 'dealer' who helps you to make or order these name cards.

8. The toilet pass!

An essential item to bring whenever you wanted to use the washroom. Pas keluar kelas can sometimes be replaced with keys when your teacher forgets to bring it along to class.

9. Everyone wanted to be a prefect because...

• You get to go for recess 10 minutes earlier than everyone else.
• You get to show who's the boss when you jaga kelas.
• You get to write down your friend's name on the blackboard when he or she is noisy.

10. ...but with great power comes great responsibility

You must get your timing right when you are chosen to raise the flag while everyone else sings Negaraku.

11. Calling your parents halfway through school using the public phone or the one in the pejabat because you had a stomach ache

Let's not forget about how you used to press the '*' and '#' at the same time when using the public phone because you believe that could prolong the usage without inserting additional money into it.

12. You know the real purpose of this wooden ruler is not for measurement

15. Blackboards

The tallest boy or girl in the class is always automatically assigned to clean up the blackboard.

We all wanted the colourful ones.

You quietly pray that they don't call up your name when they come in for the second time.

And it does not help when your class teacher tells your parents you were too noisy in class.

28. Playing all your favourite games after the year end exams

'UNO', 'Happy Family', 'Snap', 'Donkey', and 'Old Maid' were some the popular card games that everyone played.

Not forgetting Saidina, Jutaria, batu seremban and congkak too!
