Remembering --

One of my clearest memories of being young is of this:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

When I was younger, I spent many summers in Manila with my cousins. My cousin Jan and I had an almost-nightly ritual of scaring ourselves shitless watching Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and then trying to forget it by watching Strawberry Shortcake's Big Apple Bake-off with the Peculiar Purple Pieman from Porcupine Peak.

It's the movie that made me interested in cooking -- not that I cook, btw. This is the movie that made me love Strawberry Shortcake and her gang. I remember one Christmas when I got a Strawberry Shortcake doll that smelled of strawberries. Back then, I didn't know what real strawberries smelled like but I knew that it would've smelled something like my Strawberry Shortcake doll.

And now this movie is out on DVD and I want a copy of it! >_<

hi tin! I luuuuurve Strawberry Shortcake! The fact that Toy Kingdom has SS toys has made me giddy with excitement. I remember as a child my parents bought me pretty much every toy, from her pastry bicycle to a carousel, I think. And who can resist the Peculiar Purple Pie Man from Porcupine Peak!? :D
