Long Matches/ Longer Matches

Post by PrimroseHill » Mon, 21 Jan 2013 8:40 am

I was wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. Where can I buy long matches, not the usual small ones. Its for BBQ etc.

Thank you

Failing that, you can use sticks of uncooked spaghetti for longer reach...

...or any other stick of flammable material.

If it is for BBQ, why not get a fire starter? I would think that it is easier than any match.

You can find these around Singapore as well. We used to have a couple of them but cannot remember where we picked 'em up.

Get down to Raffles Hotel. They give them out free in the Cigar Lounge.
