  2. Oh how I played ten ten like my life depended on it.. We used to add swag to it sef, slightly raising our dresses while at it and 'carrying' face.. I also loved cooking. We would bring small rice with other ingredients, make fire and use kom kom to cook and sometimes we eat them too..

    I could play all day everyday then..
    I used to hate being a child then but now I miss being a child...

  3. I played all of the games above and even more for a very short period since I was only allowed to play on Saturdays and my Saturdays were very tight.

    I wouldn't miss going to the field for football games for anything in the world ( I must wake up as early as 4:30am to cook our favourite Saturday's meal which is beans and then, head to the field) my dad would only allowed me to go to the field after perceiving the nice aroma of that beansπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

    After football games, in the evening I will go for Judo training.

    I miss my childhood jor.

  27. My daughter, was asking me last weekend about the games I played as a kids. So my children and I decided to play. We played ten-ten (although I forgot the rules), they loved bread and butter, especially the tug of war after. We played the "names of countries" game. There are some similarities to what they play now. She said suwe is like hopscotch. I miss my childhood!
