Quite happening right? It’s almost as good as those times you celebrated your birthday as a kid. If you’re missing the good old days of your childhood, here are some nostalgic flashbacks to when we celebrated our birthdays as kids. See how many of these you remember!

 

1. Celebrating at fast food chains

Like KFC, McDonald’s and of course, A&W – we’ve all definitely done this kind of birthday party at least once! If not, we’re sure to have attended one organised by our friends before. Free fast food, who don’t want? Plus, everyone goes crazy over the iconic mascots! 

 

2. Getting a cake of your favourite cartoon character

These aren’t like the fancy 3D ones that you see in the market nowadays. It was the old school buttercream cakes with a gel drawing of your favourite character on top, surrounded by candy or fruit. Classic man.

 

3. Celebrating with your parents’ friends and their children… even though you had no idea who they actually were!

Do you even remember who attended your 5th birthday? Because I sure don’t!

 

4. Receiving physical birthday cards and presents

These days, most of us receive birthday wishes on WhatsApp and Facebook, including from people we barely even know! Although we appreciate receiving ang pao (because broke life is real) now, there will always be novelty and excitement in ripping open a physical birthday present to see what you get!

 

5. Celebrating at a play land complete with bouncy castles and mini jungle gyms

Of course, there will always be that ONE kid who ends up getting hurt.

 

6. Inviting a hybrid clown-magician to the party as entertainment

Plus, they would always give you those really cool animal-inspired balloons or balloon hats to wear too!

 

7. Going on a special overseas holiday trip for your birthday

When our parents told us we were going on a special trip overseas for our birthday that year and we believed that was the ultimate childhood goal. Especially if we got to go to Disneyland!

 

8. Going to a toy store and picking out anything you wanted as a present

When our parents would say, “Go and choose what you want” and we’d just stand there like,

9. Playing party games that gave guests a chance to win ‘presents’ too

Pass the parcel, musical chairs, Duck Duck Goose. Ahhhh the feels! Then there’s me who never won anything :'(

 

10. Giving out party packs in school to your classmates and teachers
