FIREWORKS are part and parcel of the festive season and Malaysians are used being bombarded by noises, especially at night.
‘Pop Pop’ is one of the most common and safer alternatives for kids to play with, as it only produces tiny sparks when thrown on the floor.
However, it can be potent when thrown on to glass, as a woman found out the hard way.
In a post on social media, a woman documented how a ‘pop pop’ her son was playing with accidentally landed on her car window, and shattered it.
She lamented the misfortune that befell her on the second day of the Chinese New Year.
Although she acknowledged her son was naughty, she stopped short of disciplining him.
“Now, hopefully I can find a workshop that is open and quickly fix the window,” she wrote in her post.
“No more Pop Pop in my house after this.”
Most people reacted to her story saying that they were shocked that such harmless firecrackers could inflict such damage.
