QotD: My Earliest Memory

What is your earliest memory? 
Submitted by Megan.

I think my earliest memory was when we were living in Hong Kong. I must have been very young because I was getting milk in bottle in the evening. We were poor then, my dad was a junior traffic policeman while my mom worked as an office admin in a small advertisement company. We were sub-letting a one bedroom apartment from an old lady who owned a restaurant nearby. I remembered that I kept asking for cold milk instead of warm so one evening my dad went and got an ice cube from the fridge. But it won't go down into the bottle because the ice cube, being non-circular, was just slightly larger than the milk bottle opening. Not having any patient, I think I made my parents put the whole bottle into the fridge to cool it down.

Did I enjoy it? I don't remember. I don't think I asked for cold milk again though.
