Where to buy 'sparklers'?

Postby ozchick » Tue, 17 Nov 2009 8:04 pm

Has anyone seen them available here? They're a good alternative to birthday candles on a cake. Have had quite a good look with no luck so far. Maybe they're illegal here?

Yes this stuff is very widely available. You can definitely find them in the shops houses in the heartlands. I don't think you can find them in the supermarkets though.

Don't they spew out ash, presumably nasty tasting ash.

Hey thanks all! My colleague apparently goes past Seng Siong each day and is going to pick up some for me! Appreciate your help!
And no BooneC I don't think that any nasty substance comes from these things. Can't be nastier than the germs from the birthday person blowing candles out on the cake! It is an odd custom I reckon this germy birthday custom. But no worse than some of the Sth Americans who stick their faces in the cake and then expect one to eat it! :?
