• 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
              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

• 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.
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).
