Childhood in Q8 Means: The Little Saving Booklet of Bank El Tasleef!!!

Most of the new generation have never seen this booklet before but those who went to primary school before the wretched 1990 invasion do!

Back then kids were encouraged to save money in the bank… therefore during break time after we were done fighting for our daily sunkist and triangular cheese fatayer we would go and buy a little green stamp for 50 fils… then we would lick it and place it into this tiny booklet…

When it was all filled out we would give it to the Teacher in Charge -or was it our parents? Im not sure- and they would keep it in the Bank for us… a full booklet is worth 3 KD …

I have this “full” booklet salvaged, miraculously if i might add, from those days… the date on it is December 1989… which makes it 22 years old next December!!!! I also remember having a full brown one saved bank… i wonder what happened to it?!!! and what happed to all other booklets saved by all the kids back then?

Pity kids now a days don’t have as much fun… all they care about is designer labels and style…

By the way… I want my 3 KD Back … with benefits!!!! Do you think i can get them?
