04/18/2006: "Testing a Video Clip"


Thanks to Mona's visits, I woke up this morning to find out that we have had quite a number of visitors plus few comments. I didn't expect that much visitors yet, since I haven't announced it in other mailing lists, awaiting Pak Budi's arrival back in Singapore from the Big Apple.

Since I have little time to kill this morning, let's have some fun with a video clip with the children there. (please click on [more] to continue)...



This clip was from Pak Budi and it was originally uploaded to our private mailing list as a test file by our man in Singapore - Soleiman Pello a.k.a Yongky. (Thanks Yongky). Well, I haven't had a chance to talk to pak Budi to verify the ownership of this clip. However, I have converted it into a wmv version to reduce the size hence the download time. In case if this video wasn't taken by pak Budi, I'm sure he has gotten the permission from the owner. Please forgive me for uploading it without asking the owner's permission. After all this is a test of the video link feature and I can take it down any time.

If you could watch this clip and you happen to be there at that time or you know the name of the game, would you please let us know what game is it? I don't recognize it as a game we played when I was a little kid in Kupang. Is this a Singaporean play? Once thing for sure, the children and even the families around the Orphanage area were very happy with the Seedling Fission Team's visit. Both pak Buddy and ibu Peggy as well as the team did a great job!

Thanks, Mona. I asked uncle Google for more info on DAB, and got this link:

Don't know if this is the same game. However, one thing for sure, the kids really enjoyed.

This game is called "Dog and Bone"...not sure if it's a Singaporean game but haha, we do play this quite often back in elementary school.
