Tarmiati: Tomorrow [Coconut Xchange engagement] you must try this [bakiak batok]! I played this when I was 10 years old. We race using coconut shells.


Tarmiati is from Kediri, Jawa Timur, Indonesia.

In the process of making coconut bowls for our Home, Tarmiati was reminded of childhood games of racing on coconut shells. Over a Facebook livestream, she relived her childhood memories and had a good laugh with friends who commented with shared memories. In the virtual Kampung SayurStory community forum, other members chimed in with tips for walking faster and memories of racing on bamboo stilts too. In Tarmiati’s home, bamboo stilts are also used for races on occasions like Indonesia’s Independence Day and Children’s Day.
