The S$14.80 pouch with dinosaur illustrations that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's wife Ho Ching was seen carrying with her to the White House is running low on stock and almost sold out.

According to Today, 200 pouches were sold in one day and more will be produced to meet overwhelming demand.
Demand for the pouch went through the roof after The Art Faculty posted on Facebook that Ho had carried the pouch designed by one of its students to Washington D.C. to meet the Obamas.
The pouch is by Pathlight student, Seetoh Sheng Jie, 19, who designed the illustrations of the dinosaurs on the pouch purely from memory without any referencing material.
Pathlight is a school for students with autism.
Ho picked up the pouch at the annual fundraising event by the Autism Resource Centre (ARC) held last Saturday.
She is an adviser to ARC, a not-for-profit charity in charge of Pathlight, and a patron of the Autism Association Singapore.
