Soap Bubbles

Our word mekabene-bene means to play with soap bubbles. We make a soap solution from laundry detergent, and to make bubbles we use a blow pipe, called a kabene-bene. Usually we just make a simple pipe by cutting the stem of a papaya leaf to about ten inches. Papaya leaves are readily available, and because the stems are naturally hollow they make good pipes for blowing bubbles.
