Filipino Kid's Games: Noon at Ngayon

I still remember when we were younger when cellphones or computer games were still not handy or available to low or average-earning families, I joined my fellow neighbors in playing chinese garter, tumba lata, taguan, patintero, siatong, and kadang - kadang. These are traditional Filipino games.

But over the years, what have been a physical exercise and fun and team games to the kids before have been replaced now by computer games, PSP, cellphone, IPOD and TV watching. No wonder some Filipino kids are becoming obese, lazy and dependent.

I wish to relive these games and let the kids know and try these. These are part of our culture and tradition as Filipinos but I guess, these games are becoming history too.
