Wau Traditional Game

The kite game, also known as wau, is a flying activity in the air. The word "wau" is said to be derived from the word Pattani Malay (Thai) as the states like Kelantan, Terengganu, Perlis and Kedah use the word. The word kite is used in most states such as the west and south coast of Peninsular Malaysia such as Selangor, Malacca and Johor. This can be proved through Tun Seri Lanang's note stating that King Ahmad played a kite with young people and royal relatives. In addition, the appearance of the name wau is also associated with the resulting sound of the bow tied to the wau. When lifted into the air, the ibus leaves mounted on the arc will produce sound "wau" in a rhythmic manner. The games are held as entertainment for various ages. The game is also held for the competition. The match that looks at her beauty is measured in terms of its beauty to the shape, the pattern of creation, the color, the originality of the creation and its size.
