Anyway, in Singapore, one of our childhood memories and pleasures are spent at the playgrounds or the void decks below our apartments. Many provision shops are decked along those places and they used to sell these plastic balloons in which you blow the through a very short straw. It looks like a bubble, except that it doesn't pop and disappear.
(Well, this will disappear some day, but definitely much slower than normal bubbles :P)
I was surprised to still see this being sold after a decade and decided to relieve this childhood pleasure of mine. :)
