Beautiful and uniquely wood cravings

Wayang Kulit or Puppet Show. 

I manage to watch this kind of show live in China last year but still unable to watch this live in my own country Malaysia yet.

Get to know our traditional games for old times people to kill their pass times. Who remember Wau Bulan, Congkak, Batu Seremban and Sepak Takraw ? I have a good time here trying out all those childhood time games.
