This time IF topic remind me of Panjat Pinang Games, held on every Indonesian Independence Day on this 17 th August, … oh dear- it’s really an emergency situation…
about Panjat Pinang:
One of the most popular games is the Panjat Pinang. An Areca palm trunk is erected in a public area and well greased with a mixture of clay and oil. At the top are hung various prizes like bikes and TVs. Whoever makes it to the top wins the prize. Needless to say there are a lot of slippery, muddy kids and grownups alike climbing over each other and struggling to reach the goal. A good time is had by all, especially the crowd watching the gaiety.
