Wayang Golek is traditional form of puppetry from Sunda, West Java, Indonesia. It is not like shadow puppet. Since this is made of out of wood, the puppeteer does not need screen to perform it. Wayang golek is accessorized with colorful costumes and exotic forms
and have moveable arms and head. Lance, an American man who fell in love with the wayang golek, will introduce some important
characters of the story. The wayang golek story is usually based on Ramayana Indian old epic. You know what ? Lance Jones is one of
biggest supplier of wayang golek in United States and befriended with Asep Sunarya, the most popular wayang golek puppet master
from West Java, Indonesia.

Remembering her own girlhood back in Indonesia, Vonny Oei admitted that she is bekkelen ball enthusiast. Say what? Bekkellen is
basically Dutch word to call some "little brass jacks" in ball game playing amongst Indonesian young girls. Vonny will demo this
bekel ball playing herself. Together with this presentation, Vonny show the kids the Indonesian dakon playing. This is alco called mancala in the USA. And last but not least, other docent will show the kids Indonesian gasing (the spinning bamboo/ wood) for boys.
No matter what, any kid should be able to start playing games by performing hand signs (Ant, People, Elephant) signs. Like paper, scissor and stone, who knows that Indonesian hand signs may be performed in ESPN, American Sport Channel, someday ?
