Murakawa Bubble Gum Found!

My search is over... A colleague of mine told me that they sold this in SaveMart in SS2... and it so happens that I was headed there yesterday night. They sold five for RM0.65 sen... So I grabbed all three flavours, although I do prefer the grape flavored once better..

Inside, the "balls" or the better term would be pellets where not as brightly coloured as I remember it to be... Maybe over the years, the legal level of artificial colouring has reduced, just like Cheesels... its not as orange as it was 15 years ago...

I really dont know why I got so excited seeing this bubble gum... I dont even know how to make a bubble with bubble gum... I guess once and awhile it is nice to see familiar things that we havent seen in a long long time... nostalgic maybe....

Sweets from yesteryear

There I was minding my own business waiting for the lift. When I got into the lift.... there it was ... in the left corner of the lift floor.... a reminisce of my past... I cld not believe it what I saw... Could it be??... It made me feel like a kid again...

hehe... I did not know that they where still making these... MURAKAWA 'artificially flavored' bubble gum.. this is like a time capsule from years gone by.... Back in school I had to buy it every other day.. I loved the purple ones (Grape) and If i remember correctly there was Strawberry too... and ofcos Orange (as seen in pic). The best part about it is that they are so proud to say that it is 'artificially flavored'.

Tried searching the shops in my area but they did not sell this... So the guy/gal that threw this box in the lift bought this from somewhere else... but where...??? I will add this to my 'to do list' ... to find and buy this bubble gum!! ........ Have you seen this being sold anywhere?

The Funnies

If you wanted a good laugh because you are feeling down the funnies or the comic strip is not the only funny thing in the newspaper... lets take today for instance. Tengku Razaleigh said that he is "surprized" that Dr M lost in Kubang Pasu UMNO delegation elections. (Yeah right) .... Razeleigh believes there are "unseen forces" stopping Dr M. ......HAAHAHAHhahahahheeeeeeee!! WTF.

How about this one......... "One hour passport renewal" in Labuan and soon in Sabah and Sarawak.. because they are linked directly to NRD.... (If only Klang Valley was as populated as Sabah and Sarawak).. haha.. ofcos they were quick to say that "as long as there is no fault with the system the one hour promise will be kept"..... HAHAHahahahahaaaaaa... and for the encore... in a sepparate article it read "System Crash brings State NRD to a standstill" hehehaeheheeeeeeeeehahahaaa.... ofcos this was in Ipoh, but the Irony of it...hahahaaa..

stop it.... it hurts....

Moon Rising

Did anyone catch the moon yesterday... it was gorgeous... The moon has always mistified me... It's tide commanding ways have intrigued me to learn more about it. I didnot get good shots of the moon but they are still nice. Will leave you with a full zoom shot.

Slippery when Wet!

Was going thru some old photos and I came across these pictures which I took last year in July. These were take from the 16th floor of the Menara Merais building and thats the Rothmans roundabout. I titled this set of pictures "Slippery When Wet".... no points for guessing why.

He died as he had lived. The crocodile hunter with his larger then life attics will always remain the most genuine animal lover of all time. I will miss is energy even if he was overzealous in his habits, at least he was genuine.

Here's to that khaki loving crocodile wrestling ..Steven Robert Irwin.
