Traditional Taiwanese game

Ken taught us this game/dance. You have to hope through two (and eventually four) bamboo sticks that are being moved together and apart to the tune of a sweet little melody. Apart, together, apart, together, apart, apart, together. So fun! I wish we could play it more often, but we need more people. The day he taught us, some of the neighborhood kids had come to play.

Then a few days later, some friends - old and new - came to visit, and we grabbed that chance.


  1. I learned this in elementary school and thought it was sooo neat. They called it tinikling.

  2. That's strange...I wrote a comment here a while back and now it's gone. Just wanted to say oops! I thought it had originated in Taiwan. I wonder why we never heard about it as kids.
