Walking in the countryside always has its rewards. Like today, my reward came from meeting two children who reminded me of something I have long forgotten to do: walk on stilts.
This outdoor game is popularly known in the Visayas and Mindanao as kadang or kadang-kadang. In the Tagalog regions, this is known as tiyakad.
Usually, a pair of bamboo poles with equals lengths is used. Each pole should have a stepladder to serve as platform for each foot.
The kadang-kadang player has to keep moving at all times. Otherwise, he or she will loose balance and fall.
Kadang-kadang is usually played as a game of race. But it could also be played during leisure time with family and friends.
But with today’s children playing in tablets and computers, I wonder if they’d ever be interested to play kadang-kadang, a game they may not even know yet.
