The Good Old And New Days

During my childhood days, I remember playing Card games with my neighbours, all of us were not from rich families, so naturally, we made our games from cardboards then. We were very cooperative, helping each other, colorring the cards and spent a lot of time doing the numbers and creating our own patterns. One of the cardboard games is bingo.  The fun part was when the winner had all the numbers called out, he/she would repeatedly shout 'BINGO' a number of times excitedly, so loud that we used to get ticked off by our mothers.  Those were the good old days! 

When I started working, there were times when my elder sibling would take me to a club for Some board games once a week. I can still remember it was a Thursday each week and I was always looking forward to it. We really enjoyed ourselves very much, the chances of winning was high, but besides the snowball prizes, Some of the board games were very interesting and fun, play, we enjoyed watching and listening to the compere making jokes every now and then.  Besides the games, we had a good time bonding with other people in the club,  we really enjoyed ourselves and each event brought laughter, well, it was very all very hilarious then.


But with the new millennium days, I am now hooked to the computer, friends called me a "computer addict."  I cannot survive without a computer, literally saying.  Most of my time I stay connected to the internet whether I am at home or in the office.  I love to surf websites and weblogs, writing my journals and some time back, I was "hooked" onto online games.  One of the games I love playing is rummy.  Those younger days, my sisters and I used cards to play but now with the new technology and we sisters are so busy with our family lives, I can just go online and entertain myself.  

There are some days that I could not sleep and I log in to just like to play for fun, just to get back the nostalgic feeling of my younger days.  There are times when I check out for other games and I get so excited that  I ended up more awake than sleepy instead.  LOL...

Talking about online games, many of my retired friends now prefers to stay at home and plays games on their computers during their leisure time.  Most of our kids are all grown up now and away from home and they told me that this is the best time to relax.   There are so many interesting games to check out in this website, games suitable for kids and for adults like me.



Well, online games might be interesting and as long as we know where our limits are, these games bring around adverse effects if we do not have self control.  As the saying goes, it is time to unwind and have pleasure after a long day of pressure. :)
