Bubbles .......

Found my childhood feeling at Jonker St, Melaka. Besides than the red wooden clogs, we bought these bubbles for the kids. Read it from 'Look Who's Talking' and that really brings back good old memories. And glad that we found them in Jonker St. "Chloe, quick get your mummy to buy some for you."
RM1 for a pack of 8 mini tubes. Each tube are enough to blow 3 - 4 bubbles. There is also 1 larger size selling at RM1 per tube, but we choose this mini sizes one.
Opps....baby thought it was some kind of candies.
YX was suprised and excited when he saw the bubbles forming from the
straw blown by hubby.

And the quality of the bubbles are not like my childhood time. It shrunk very fast. In fact, it started to shrunk even before touching YX's hand.

"Oh no......baby.....not this way...should blow with the straw".
Baby saw hubby blowing and she wanted to imitate. haha
She was so happy when she got to hold the bubbles....errmm....shrunken bubbles to be exact. Plus baby was very rough and therefore......
bubbles sticking to her hand.
.
While having fun with the bubbles, our house was filled with laughters and giggled. However, it ended with choas. While YX was admiring his only successful bubbles which did not shrunk as fast as the others, baby XJ grab and crumpled up his bubbles...........
and left YX crying for a new one. Luckily we managed to calm him down and offer him some biscuits. Aaaa...when there is food, he forgot his bubbles !

    your sons are cute! It is lovely to see them enjoying the bubbles.

    Have a nice day!

    yes..I played those too when I was a kid. Seremban really cannot find le (i did not really 100% search in each shop la) and I find Jonker St in Melaka got so many of my childhood things.

    Willie ~ Oh yes..we bought water bubbles for the kiddos too and they love it. Share with them our childhood moments. ;) Btw, 1 son + 1 daughter.

    LvBeii ~ Ya...either the quality drop or our skill in blowing drop? hahaha....but kind of happy to see the kids enjoying themselve.

    Alice Law ~ Oh dear...tarik balik pocket money! haha.... you must have bought too many!

    LittleLamb ~ Ya...the smells are rather addictive. We make sure they wash their hands after play. And we don't allow them to blow though. Scare they might inhale the smell.

  24. OMG... how come I don't remember playing this kind of bubbles at all... I remember the bubble but not the tube... but hor.... actually... when I was young.... did not get to play much of these bubbles or toys. My father was the only one bringing the food home. So my mom was very frugal as life was quite tough at that time.
