Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Toys
Sunday Stills Challenge of the Week, the next challenge with tags Sunday Stills on July 19, 2009 by Ed

Yep toys, old,new, kids, animals, grownup, whatever you call a toy.

In the Royal Mulu Resort, there are plenty of toys if you don't feel inclined to do caving, both for grown ups and children.

Even two pairs of bamboo poles can make fantastic toys for the brave and quick footed. I was neither, so I didn't give it a go. This ia a Traditional Melanu dance done both by men and women.

The kids had fun having a go at the blow pipes where they used balloons as targets. The grown ups can use the bulls eye target with the blowpipe or archery. Sam claimed his sharp eye by shooting at a balloon. Traditionally and still used by the natives to hunt birds and animals, using the poison from the Ipoh tree. More on this later.

There were families with young children, I am sure many of them did not brave the jungle treks and the caves. Many of them just hung around in the pool.

Hi Ann, I am familiar with the bamboo poles. I grew up in the Phils, and we call this tinikling. I used to dance this when I was in elementary and high school. If given a chance now, I can get the groove in a few minutes of warm up.
I will have my post on Sunday.
