Aku Cinta XXX 2011

Generation Y, Echo Boomers, Net Generation… these terms have been used repeatedly to describe the generation following Generation X. Though there are no precise dates as to when the generation starts and ends, most sources have used birth dates ranging somewhere from the mid-1970s to the mid-1990s. People who belong in this generation are mainly children of the Baby Boomers, while some younger members of this generation may have parents who are from Generation X. Outcome of studies also show that most people from this generation are close to their parents and seek social acceptance from people in their surroundings. Growing up in a time where the Internet brought a great change to traditional media, studies have also shown that people from the Net Generation used technology at a higher rate compared to people from other generations.

For the generation that grew up in Malaysia during the 1980s, one of the many things that makes it so different compared to those who grew up a decade later is the amount of money we receive during our school days. Most of us will remember only receiving RM2 or RM3 as pocket money to buy food during schooling hours. Back then, it was sufficient to keep our tiny stomachs fed till dinnertime, and maybe a treat or two after school if we were good at saving up. These days, RM3 is hardly enough to get by, especially if they have to rely on public transportation to get to school. Back then, it was considered as a ‘cool’ thing to have your very own ‘Walkman’ set. Though it may have cost less than RM100, to have such a device would boost your social status in school tremendously. These days, mobile phones and Ipods are the norm among school children.

Walkman

Before the Ipod craze, there was the walkman... our major source of entertainment on the go!

If you are one of the many Malaysians that grew up during the 80s, do not miss the latest production by the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre and ACX entitled ‘Aku Cinta XXX 2011′. This production is conveyed in a minimalism form of theatre and aims to share perspectives and experiences through the eyes of Malaysians born in the 80s, who is also known as Generation Y. The performance will convey their thoughts on the past and present situations of society, cultural developments and matters of life happening in our country. This show will definitely strike a familiar chord with other Generation Y members as they reminisce about the things that they know, love or loathe while growing up during the 80s. The story will be divided into four themes : Never give up, Take precautions, Look forward with great hope, and Make every effort to succeed. This fast-paced, 80-minute performance will be communicated in Bahasa Malaysia.
