People this generation are addicted to gadgets, especially children. Watching movies, playing online games just to have fun instead of having fun outside the house with friends and neighbor kids.
Playing traditional games such as balay balay (building mini houses), alotanay (tag or running), hide and seek, tumba kabayo (rocking horse), luksong tinik (jump thorn) and so on. You don’t see it anymore in children beacase of this new technology.
This painting depicts as children’s game from the past called climbing tree or in Bisaya saka kahoy. This game is a game where children climb a tree, pick the fruit and eat at top of the tree while playing something there too.
