Melaka Shopping: 86 reviews and 154 photos
Ever watched the dodgy movie, Dodgeball? Well, in real life, there is an equivilent game in Asia with as much adrenaline, and attitude. Even the name of the game sounds like a fierce moniker for the likes of ballsy characters - "Sepak Takraw." Sepak meaning "slap" or "kick" , Takraw simply means ball in Thai . Unlike dodgeball though, the players slam dunk the ball across a net using most of their body parts except their hands! And instead a plastic ball, they use a pretty wicker ball. Well, never mind even if you can't play the game, the ball still makes a nice souvenir right?
What to buy: Traditional Sepak Takraw Balls are small, lightweight and made of brown-coloured wicker or ratten wood. You'll find lots of these in Jonker Street.
What to pay: Each ball cost around Rm5-10 in Jonker Street.
