Posted: Mon Oct 23, 2006 5:33 pm

Have you remember playing congkak, batu seremban, galah panjang, tarik upih and all these olden days games? I did, and I can remember how much fun I had at that time. Just a bit sad thinking of my nephew and nieces or perhaps the new generation is missing these. All I can see now is Barbie Doll, Spiderman, Power Ranger, Doremon etc. Are we missing something here? I would like to qoute from Korff, Rudiger in his paper ' Globalisation and Communal identities in the prural society of Malaysia' might relates to this scenario.
Quote:
Expressions of globalisation and modernisation in monuments like the Menara Kuala Lumpur, Petronas Towers and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) contrast sarply with warnings against for-reaching cultural change. Such cultural change is seen to be rooten in a mimicking of the west and reflected, for instance, in the dissolution of traditional bonds within the family.

I do remember how P.Ramlee movies use to be the fashion in my childhood time. Time, people, places has changed, indeed! Rolling Eyes

I represent the Y generation and I seriously never really had the experience of enjoying really Malaysian traditional games... aside from batu seremban (Seremban is also a name of a place in Malaysia), congkak, and getah? (can't remember the name). But I really enjoyed Galah Panjang. I hurt myself a lot while playing this game when i was about 8 or 9 y.o. Hahahha!!!

I remember now! Konda-kondi is also another game that I had loads of fun playing. it really is a good and fun way to learn math!

This is interesting. I am wondering if anyone has any good source on the history of design/artefacts in Malaysia? If the answer is no, or little, maybe it's time we need to have a review on our own design culture! This is important because it will help us understand more about the role of design in our country, before we can actually promote/brand them!

I'm agree with you Chris, I wonder if we can dig the information on the history of design in Malaysia. Would be interesting to see how it evolved..
