30 Days of Lists | Day 8: Things That Remind Me of My Childhood

This is an interesting prompt, because I don’t have very many mementos from my childhood, having moved from Taiwan to California in 1979 with just some suitcases and nothing more.

Things That Remind Me of My Childhood:

  • Coca Cola
  • G-Force / Gatchaman cartoon (I loved it so much as a kid that I actually bought the entire 112 episode DVD series when it came out a few years ago!)
  • Grilled corn with spicy sauce from street vendors in Taipei
  • Playing Chinese jacks (watch youtube video on how to play!)
  • Kickball
  • Pencil boxes
  • Scratch N Sniff stickers
  • Jumping puddles with my rain boots on
  • My mechanical pencil collection (still have it)
  • Hello Kitty
  • Walking to school with my sister
  • Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants
  • Scooby Doo
  • Schoolhouse Rock


  1. thanks for the link about Chinese jacks. Never heard about it before!

  2. Conjunction Junction, what's your function?
    Hooking up words and phrases and clauses.

  3. Just to let you know I couldn't find Chinese Jacks anywhere so I started manufacturing them so my kids and others could have the fun we did as kids! I don't want to solicit on here but if you want you can check out my blog to find out more! Thanks!!!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
