I visited MarketManila today and made a comment on his article dated 3 May 2009 on Chicos & Indian Mangoes in Season Now! Millet reminisced on her childhood summers spent playing sungka.

I am also part of the statistics on millions of Filipinos who spent summers playing sungka.  “What is that,  mum?”,  my 6-year old daughter asked as I cleaned the sungka for this article.  How do I start? Could I explain the rules to her properly? My son is most likely to ask for the manual or instructions on how the ‘game’ is played.   How much effort can these computer kids spend learning the old game before boredom sets in?

The only similarity I can think of when comparing the old game and new technology is the excitement and anticipation that your turn is next.
