Top Spinning


Top spinning

Top-spinning is a favourite traditional game of the Malays of Perak. Many, however, prefer to relate top-making and top-spinning to the East Coast states of Kelantan and Terengganu. But this is a time-honoured cliché confined to the tourism brochures of yore. The game has a huge following in Kuala Kangsar, as it is a pastime enjoyed by the royal household of Perak. A top-spinning festival was held in Kuala Kangsar in May with very encouraging results. Besides top-spinning other traditional games such as congkak, sepak raga and localised telematches were held over the two-day period.
