Pop Pop-Do You Still Remember Them?

It's Wednesday again...before this special day which marks our mid-week comes to its conclusive ends...let me share with your some photos that might make you reminisce a bit about your childhood (especially so if you are a Malaysian). So...do you still remember Pop Pop? You wanted to play with those high-flying firecrackers that roared the whole village, but you parents insisted that you play with Pop Pop-the "thing" which they claim is safer. The "thing" that you grab hold of and throw it onto the floor. Once it landed on the floor, the crash will cause that Pop Pop to EXPLODE! Yes! It will literally explode when it crashed into with something hard. So now...do you know what is Pop Pop?

Colourful, isn't it?

My baby boy examining his Pop Pop! :D

Aww...Pop Pop made me miss my childhood...then again it can be a bit dangerous right? :p I bought a few boxes of Pop Pop for my son to play with during the past Chinese New Year. He was scared when he heard the "mini explosion". Still...he wants to hold this packet of Pop Pop and examine them. I am glad that his curiosity sometimes override his fear for something. Haha :D Perhaps they are more colourful these days compared to the plain white ones we used to play with.
