16 only? Alah..... kacang la Shana oiiii.... hehehe... I know, I have a series of tags that I haven't answered yet. Most of them from Shana by the way.
Anyway, before I begin, about this tag thing - it reminds me of one of my childhood games in Kg Pasir, Johor Bahru dolu-dolu, it's called RAM-RAM-RIT. It was quite close to 'police & thieves' (which masa kecik2 dulu sounded like 'police century' to me, hahahaha!!!)- whereby the 'police' would run after the 'thieves' , 'cuit' one of the thieves & that particular thief in turn became the police and must then run to catch the next thief. Except that this RAM-RAM-RIT - there's no police no thief, but still with one running after a few others with the intention to 'cuit' one target and the target would in turn become the one to catch the next target.
How did the initial person got chosen to be the chaser or the catcher in RAM RAM RIT? Easy..... All players, boys & girls alike, gathered around. Someone would volunteer to held out his or her palm, and everyone then touched the center of the palm with everyone's index fingers. And then we all sang our hearts out:
RAM RAM RIT
ANAK UDANG KENA SEPIT
NAK KAWIN TAKDE DUIT
CARI BINI ATAS BUKIT
(No...I don't think Pak Malim, kucing ray yg alim crafted this pantun... hehe!)
Immediately at the end of the pantun, we would all pull back our index fingers. And the one whose finger got caught ( yakni di cekup!) by the palm extender would automatically be considered the first catcher. I.e. He or she would have to run after the rest of the gang who have to run helter skelter bertempiaran tunggang terbalik pusing pokok, balik reban, belakang garage; with the intention to cuit someone. Then that someone (yang dicuit) would be the next catcher. And so on, and so forth. Until today, I have no clue what the rationale behind this game is, but it sure was a lot of fun. And besides, as kids, who said there is any need to rationalise to have fun? What I can still remember, it sure looked like a good scene for MILO to sponsor: "Minum Milo Anda Jadi Sihat & Kuat!". It was a damn good aerobic exercise for us kids.
Zaman dolu - dolu.... Senangkan? No software to be downloaded, no battery to be re-charged and no worries of being limited to 2 or 3 players only. Mainlah seramai mana, and sampai bila suka - which always ended up sampai sweaty & smelly, sampai petang hari or sampai Mak sapa2 jerit, "Oiiii!! Balik mandi!!! Dah nak masuk maghrib ni!!!! "
But of course, RAM RAM RIT being an outdoor game, it was surely subject to inclement weather.
Hmmm... tu lah dia.... tags... always remind me of RAM RAM RIT. Dolu dolu physically have to cuit a friend who then will have to chase and cuit another friend. Today, we can still do this through the cyber world, through cyber touch. RAM RAM RIT di alam maya!
Woiitt! Bukan Maya Karin yerk! Cehhh....
Eh! Wahhhh.... Jauhnya digressed. What was it that I have to do just now? Tag eh? What kind of tag this time? 16 random facts about myself?
Alah..... dah pukul 3 pagi dah ni.... tak kuasaaaaaaa la pulak nak jawab tag! Esok je lah Shana ek? InsyaAllah, before tahun hijrah yg baru.
hehehe...Jgn marah Shana, nanti kena jual over the counter, AS IS basis. hehe...
