I named it the boy from Philippines. Because firstly I'm a boy. Then secondly obviously I'm from Cebu, Philippines.
I didn't have bamboo skewers so I saw our coconut... or dwarf coconut. It has a dahon (in cebuano) or leaf which if you peel it there is a stick I used as my bamboo skewers. It's pretty light followed all the instructions then... DONE!
It was a great time because we were going to our province because it's almost Holy Week. And there's a great space and almost moderate winds there.
It was morning and cloudy. I asked my cousin to hold the kite. Then I said "Buhi-i na! (in cebuano) or Let It Go!" then it was airborne.
I was really happy because what I made... flew... YyyaaayyY! Then I pulled it back down with the help of my cousin. Then touch down.
P.S. I made this only by myself, because my father was tinkering his amplifier and my cousin was still at their house. I'm not lying.
As mentioned earlier, there's more kite-making on this site than you can poke a stick at :-)
