Malay Kampong Games Chapteh • Lastly the chapteh is a modified shuttlecock played around Asia. The object of the game is to try to keep the chapteh in the air as long as possible by kicking it continuously without allowing it to fall to the ground • A toy made of feathers attached by their quills to weights such as round pieces of rubber, which is kicked using the inner side of the foot. A top-spinning contest is basically a friendly game. There are two kinds of matches. Gasing The first is the "spinning contest" and the second one is called the "striking match". In the "spinning contest", the one who can spin his top for the longest time wins the match. Once the top has been launched, the top is carefully scooped off the ground using a thin wooden bat. It will then be transferred to a little wooden post with a metal surface and left to spin for as long as possible. The trick here is to ensure that the top doesn't topple during the transit. The "striking match" is far more exciting than the first. Each contestant must try to hit their opponent's tops so that the already spinning tops will topple and loses its balance and speed. Sepak Takraw Background and History Sepal Takraw was created by the royal family of Malaysia about 500 years ago. The name itself comes from two languages. Sepak is "kick" in Malay, and Takraw is the "ball" in Thai. When it is born, It looked like Japanese "Kemari", and some became a circle, and a pole was kicked, and the number of times was being competed in. It looks very similar to the Japanese traditional game, "kemari" where the players form a loose circle and the number of times the ball is kicked before it touches the ground is counted. In 1965 the game was unified into the present volleyball style with the addition of a net and the adoption of international rules. Sepak Takraw • Game The court and the net height and size are identical to those used in badminton and each team has three players. The rules are very similar to those in volleyball, with the following five important exceptions. • The use of hands is not permitted. • Each player may touch the ball only once before it is kicked over the net. • There is no rotation in the defense position. • It becomes a score (net in) even if the ball touches the net before falling into the companion court. Five Stones • Sharp reflexes are needed to play batu serambat or five stones. Tiny cloth bags stuffed with beans, sand and rice are tossed in the air by a player. Before it falls, she has to pick up another bag from the ground. This game is popular among girls and is played with one hand. • One way we used five small stones. First of all, we threw all of them down on the floor. Then you picked one up with your fingers and tossed it into the air. You had to pick another one up and then catch the one you threw in the air. Then you picked each of them up in turns. • The second round you played, you picked two stones up at a time. The third round you played, you picked three of them up, then you picked the last one up. The fourth round you picked four of them up. • The last step you tossed the stones into the air and caught them on the back of your hand. You had to snatch them off and try to catch them in your palm. The number which you caught was your score. After that, you started over. If you failed to catch them, it was your partner's turn. Congklak The playing board is made from wood, with variations from island to island in the number of holes on each side, either 5, 6, 7 or 9 holes. All the boards have two 'store house' holes, one on each end. Congklak boards can be elaborately carved and painted, with gold and red being popular colors. Most, however, are made of relatively plain wood Object of the Game: to get as many shells as you can into your store house. Your store house is the hole at the end of the board on your left side. To Win: You win the game if you have the most shells in your store house (menang biji) - or - if you are the last person to run out of shells on your side of the board (menang jalan).
