Mommy & Me Monday

Monday, September 20, 2010

My first time to join Mommy and Me Monday. Thank you Kristin for thinking of it.

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn

Playing "sungka" with my 21-month old daughter during our recent visit to my mother's hometown. Sungka is the Philippine version of "Congkak", a mancala game popular in Borneo, Singapore, Peninsular Malaysia and Java in Indonesia. Great way to teach a toddler how to count.

I also love playing sungka, and the first time I taught my kids how to play it, they wouldn't stop :-)

Sungka! I miss it! Brings back childhood memories!

Wow I didn't know sungka is a popular game in other parts of the world too. None of my friends here in Manila played the game.

Thanks all for visiting and commenting.

I played it too when I was a kid, but I hardly found them around anymore these days.
