Of Work and Cracker

A firework is a device containing gunpowder and other combustible chemicals which causes spectacular effects and explosions when ignited. A firecracker is a loud, explosive firework. 

In other words, Firework is bunga api while Firecracker is mercun.

Playing with the safe version of firecracker aka bunga api gives me a warm and satisfying feeling inside. But I think I never play with mercun in my entire life.

Oh! Except the tiny, onion-like firecracker that sounds Pop Pop when it hits the floor. It comes in a small yellow box that has Pop Pop written on it. How I love that one.
