Kite Flying Is No Child's Play

in #travel3 years ago (edited)


I grew up in a village in Borneo and one of my fondest childhood memories is flying kites with my friends in the wide open fields during the evening. At that time computer and electronic games were non-existence.

In conjunction with the 2018 Sibu International Base Jump Carnival, a kite flying festival was held.

At the same time, numerous kites were on display to the public.

Unsurprisingly children were captivated by the kite exhibition.

Different types of kites were flown. This kite is in the shape of a Sarawak flag.

When night fell, kites with LED lights were flown.

The skyline of Sibu was lighted up by the kites.

Compared to the simple kite of my childhood which at that time cost only 5 cents, the kites in the festival were masterpieces of art. To be able to get these gigantic kites to fly high in the sky is no child play.
