The Boy From Philippines
by Charles Amodia Sosmeña
(Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines)
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 another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...
"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)
