I basically found what you might essentially call a Made In China shop, where you find cheap Made In China items of varying levels of quality. The shop name is called "Fun & Cheer" and you can find it here.

It's on that road, big red signboard, consists of multiple shops. I was able to pick up some interesting items for a low price. First off is this jumbo disposable lighter.

I got this for RM3.90 which is cheaper than the RM9 I usually see these going for. And also, it has some extra features, flip it to the bottom and...

Not only is there a WHITE LED flash light for finding candles in the dark (which you can light with the lighter after you found them.) There's a cheap UV light as well for revealing hidden marks on bank notes, and I guess... errrr.. authenticity labels on wine bottles?

I also acquired a confetti shooter.

It's not a one shot barrel type like the rest of the stuff I've seen people used in weddings. This thing takes ammo cartridges.

The design of the thing seems to be similar to the old six shooter cap guns I used to play with when I was young, there's a simple mechanism that rotates and sets off a hammer that strikes an ignition source which theoretically will propel the confetti out. What ignition source you say?

Those small little dots are just small quantities of errr.. for lack of a better term. Gun powder, which can be set off on impact.

And also I said that it should theoretically work since I haven't actually shot off a round yet, cause I want to capture the thing firing in slow mo with my video cam. And if I spray confetti inside the house I think my wife would kill me.

I also seem to remember the ammo compartment of my toy guns exploding after too much use. I guess since you can't refill these things it should be fine.
