Throwback Thursday (My First One!)

Inspired by Jane, Audrey and Sharon at PinksandBlues, I have decided to start my own Throwback Thursday posts! What fun it is to take a walk down memory lane. I just love looking at old pics!

This photo was taken circa 1983 on one of our trips to Trinidad and Tobago to spend Christmas with my Dad's family. This photo was taken before our youngest brother was born.

I really miss those good 'ol days when we used to go traveling together as a family. I miss the excitement of always being on the go during summer and winter vacation. My brother and I used to hang out with the locals, and return to Canada with a "Trini accent" for a few weeks! We'd also climb mango trees, pick the fruit off and just eat the mangoes and get our hands and faces all sticky with mango juice. We'd get one of my grandmother's employees to get us fresh coconut and we'd drink the coconut juice (or as some call it, coconut 'milk') straight from the coconut! LOL! We'd pick bananas (the little ones) and eat them...and my brother would even spend days catching lizards. We'd go to the beach and see sea turtles. We'd build sand castles and bury each other in the sand. We'd listen to calypso and steel band music. We'd eat 'doubles', chickpea and channa, roti and jerk chicken. We would bring all our school books but we never ended up doing any work! Those were our carefree, youthful days. I do miss those kinds of days.

PS. Thanks to Dawn for letting everyone use the Throwback Thursday banner she made!

Thank you! :) I was cute way back then! Whenever I look at old pics, I cannot believe how thin I was! LOL! I used to be such a little toothpick! Gosh! I wonder what on earth happened! LOL!

Thanks! You know, that was way back when I was a shy, timid, quiet lass. I used to follow the "Little girls should be seen and not heard" rule and all those other outdated, old school beliefs ;) I'm no longer shy, timid OR quiet! LOL! I'm quite the opposite! I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I checked out your blog! It's great! I'll be popping by your spot in the blogosphere again for updates! Thanks for letting us use the banner!!!

You know, I LOVED those pyjamas! I always felt like a little China doll in them. I've tried to find some for adults, but haven't had any luck! I think they are soooo cute!

OMG you guys are so cute in those chinese PJ's! I have a similar photo with my little sis when we were about 5 and 3 - I should dig it up somewhere.
My munchkins get into their PJ's at Chinese New year; I'll have to find those pix too.
Throwback Thursdays are such fun - only problem is I'm so ancient trying to capture them on digital may make the photos disintegrate teehee!

Chrissy121875 said...
