“These tiny boxes of Japanese bubble gum have always held a special place in my heart. Neatly arranged in a small cardboard tray, each box contains exactly four pastel coloured gumballs, tasting of delightfully artificial fruit, cola, Ramune and yogurt. As a kid, I would trade them with friends as though they really were precious pearls. Years later, I was pleasantly surprised to find them again in the confectionary aisle of my local Asian supermarket, still in the same nostalgic packaging. In a year where so much has changed, it brings me comfort that some things, however small, have stayed the same.”
