Live Report from My Neighborhood

Pardon me; I woke up late today. However, I still remember what I have to do to participate in Blogfam photo competition held on August 16-17, 2006. Therefore I’m looking around in my neighborhood to take pictures of some games. Unfortunately, interesting games such as Panjat Pinang (Climbing a kind-of bamboo to the peak to get the prizes) is not held. I hope I didn’t miss great games in crowd.

Below are best moments that captured on my camera:

Balap Karung (Sack Racing)

Title: Wanita Super di Balap Karung
Location: Pulo Melati Rw 16, Jakarta

Date: 17 Agustus 2006

Sepertinya peserta untuk remaja putri lebih sedikit daripada peserta prianya. Takut jatuh kali ya? seperti terlihat pada gambar; Ugh! Sakit!!! (It seems that girls are afraid to fall down! I can assume from the fewer participants for this game. I admit; I’m scared to death! *LOL*)

Lomba Memasukkan Bola ke dalam Gawang dengan Terong!

Kicking ball to the goal-net is common, but what if using aubergine-swing? This is what they do; to win the game, they have to make a goal by swinging aubergine that is tied up behind to drive the ball into the goal-net. It's so funny!

Tarik Tambang (Tug of War)

Title: Menang Gak Menang Asal Ngumpul
Location: Pulo Mawar Rt 03/09, Jakarta
Date: 17 Agustus 2006

Sepakbola Daster (?)

Hm, ok, I give up! I don't know daster in English. I thought it was 'duster' but I don't think so. Daster is a house dress or lounging gown made of cotton, but different with lingerie. Daster is commonly used by women. That's the unique thing of this game; men wear daster!

Ambil Koin dari Semangka (Taking coins out of watermelon)

But it's not original watermelon! Its covered with mixture of charcoal, vegetable oil, and little salt. You have to prepare yourself getting dirty here to collect coins as many as possible!

  5. hello there jose alberto,

    I've visited your blog "Estados Gerais" using Babel fish translator. In my opinion, your blog is concentrated in political stuffs and current affairs which I think it has segmented readers. It's good though. :)

    You are a dear one.
    Well, EG speaks of politics, economy and other themes... particularly very interesting parables.
