Pillow fighting @ Koperasi Homestay Sungai Chenaam Nibong Tebal Berhad

The next morning, we were asked to gather at the river. I got the agenda for the program but I absolutely did not know that 'pukul bantal' (pillow fighting) is playing at the pool. Moreover, I have been told that this is one of the Malay traditional game that commonly found in Malay village. Oh my gosh, this is my first time heard about it even though I stay here for more than 20 years!

第二天早上,主办单位要求我们要河边聚集。我先前已经拿到整个项目的时间表但是就是不知道原来‘枕头对抗’是在池里进行的。不但如此,我那时才知道这个是马来人的传统游戏,在马来村庄是蛮普遍的。天啊,这是我第一次听说这游戏虽然我在这里已经住了超过20年!

Crazy Traditional Games @ Homestay Sungai Chenaam, Penang

At the mid of the year when the weather is hot, the Malay kids at the village like to play water to cool the body. Eventually, this game is created. The very first rule of the game is can't hit the opponent's head if not point will be deducted. Usually, the adults will be the referee while the players are all kids. It can be played by both adults and kids. During the game, only 2 players are allowed sitting at the bamboo bridge facing each other.

在年中天气非常炎热的时候,村庄内的马来小朋友很喜欢去嬉水来降温。结果这游戏就这样演变出来。这游戏的第一个规则便是不可以敲打对方的头部要不然就会被扣分。通常大人会做评判,玩的都是小孩。这游戏大人也可以参与。在游戏的当儿,只有2个参赛者面对面坐在竹桥上。

But since this program is organized purposely for us, therefore the players are all adults (players are all participants for this program). The crucial tip to win is to hit the opponent's waist to make him/her imbalance. But one can't overact by giving too powerful strike until losing own balance and drop into the water.

但是这游戏的初衷是安排给我们的,所以所有参赛者都是成人(就是这项目的所有参赛者)。要取得胜利的关键是拍打对方的腰部使他们失去平衡。但是也不可以太大力以致自己失去平衡掉入水里。

(哈哈哈)

I know I'm bad, but I can't stop laughing at the last picture when my friend dropped into the water and another is sneering at her. And all these are captured in time by me :P

我知道我很坏,但是看到最后一张 -一位朋友掉入水内和另外一位嘲笑他的照片,我忍不住大笑。这全部都被我及时拍下 :P

Duck Catching Koperasi Homestay Sungai Chenaam Nibong Tebal Berhad

Coming next is duck catching...oh no all this is beyond my imagination. I thought we would go to a farm to catch duck but hey absolutely not like what I thought! Just after finish the pillow fighting, one of the villager took out all the ducks from the cage and tightly held at his hand before releasing into the pool.

接下来便是抓鸭子...这超出我的想象。我以为我们是去农场抓鸭子但是这跟我想的不一样。就在我们完成枕头大战后,一位村民便把鸭子从笼子内抓出来紧扣在手指缝内。

As many of us not willing to go down the pool with various kind of excuses (hahaha young man you don't have menstruation right? :P), so the game opened to the kids at the village to join in the fun. (I paid respect to those heroes and heroins going down to the water) I can tell you that all these village kids are very brave and definitely a good swimmer! After the whistle blew, all of the participants swimming as fast as possible to chase the ducks released. Being an audience, it is really fun watching the game ^^

因为我们当中很多人以各种各样的理由不愿意下水 (年轻的男士们你们没来月经吧?:P )所以游戏开放给村内的小孩参与。(我还蛮佩服下水玩的男英雄和女英雄们)我可以告诉你们这些乡村小孩都很勇敢以及肯定他们都是很好的游泳健将!当肖子吹响后,所有的参赛者便朝向被释放的鸭子方向猛地游去。作为一个观众,在河边观看这项目还蛮爽的 ^^

Crazy Traditional Games @ Homestay Sungai Chenaam, Penang

According to one of my friends, the duck catching activity is also another Malay traditional game that is still practiced in Malay village nowadays. Usually the game is played after harvesting season. The farmer will make his field like a pool so that the ground is wet, loose and easy to plant. They will let the ducks swimming around the pool, mating with each other and laying eggs. The lost ducks would be caught and eventually that is how the game developed.

根据我一位友人的说法,抓鸭子的游戏是另外一个马来人的传统游戏,至今还流传下来。通常是在收割后进行的。农民会把稻田弄成好像一个池那样以便土地潮湿,松软和容易耕种。他们会把鸭子放在池里游泳,配对以及产蛋。那些迷失的鸭子就会被村民抓回来,然后就这样有了这个游戏。

One of the kids who manged to catch the duck. It looks like an easy job for them! Thumbs up for him!

其中一位成功抓到鸭子的小朋友。这看起来对他们来说是很简单的任务!该给他一个赞扬!

paddy field @ Koperasi Homestay Sungai Chenaam Nibong Tebal Berhad
Okay, here the event photographer...please don't do like him as the water he is bathing now is poisonous according to the villagers. The water looks clear but actually that is the drain where all the insecticide flows in.

好的,这就是负责拍这几天活动的摄影师...请不要学他那样因为村民说他用来洗澡的水有毒。虽然水看起来很清澈但是其实那是个沟渠,所有农作物的杀虫药都会流入这里。

Crazy Traditional Games @ Homestay Sungai Chenaam, Penang

It's indeed a nice scene and tempting to bath here but no way to take such a risk. LOL immediately he rushed to the shoplot using the pipe water to wash off the insecticide :P

这里的确是个很不错的景色让人会情不自禁在这嬉水但是千万不要冒这样的险。哈哈...他过后赶紧到附近的店面用水候水清洗干净身上残留的杀虫剂 :P

When heading back, I saw a giant grasshopper at the banana leaf! Kampung Chenaam is a very good place to hang around if you embrace nature. (but only one annoying thing during the stay is the mosquitoes)

会的路上,看到一只超大只的蚱蜢停留在香蕉叶上!若你很喜欢大自然,Kampung Chenaam 是个不错的地方。(不过有个烦人的事情那就是蚊子好多)



I very appreciate for Mak Long who hosted our stay. It is indeed a very beautiful and spacious house! I would not forget the wonderful experience here!

我非常感谢Mak Long 的招待。这是一间超大超美的屋子!我不会忘记在这儿的美好时光!
