@ green Says …

It ’ s the Year of the Tiger !


TIGER , in general , may remind people of a solid undefeated character . It is often associated with power and bravery .
It may remind Malaysians of the iconic Malayan tiger , a prominent symbol in the country ’ s coat of arms .
The animal will remind them of the national football team , Harimau Malaya , or the Southern Tigers - Johor Darul Ta ’ zim Football Club if they are into sports . If they are into cars , it will remind them of the Proton logo .
It may also remind Malaysians of the famous traditional game called Datuk Harimau that children used to play back in the day . Its name is directly translated as Grandpa Tiger , obviously the game ’ s main character .
The way it is played is quite similar to the Red Light Green Light game made famous through Netflix ’ s TV series , Squid Game . It is not a surprise since this rhythmic folk game is played worldwide , though its versions may be slightly different from country to country .
Even in Malaysia , some children may play Malaysia ’ s version of this folk game , the Datuk Harimau , differently . However , the gameplay is pretty much similar . The children will still sing “ What time is it , Datuk Harimau ?” and the Datuk Harimau will answer whatever he wants .
It can be one o ’ clock , two o ’ clock or even six o ’ clock .
But , the moment he says , “ It ’ s 12 o ’ clock !” - run ! Because this means he had enough of the questions , and it was time for him to eat the other players . The game was fun ! It was fun to annoy the tiger , and if you ’ re chosen to play the tiger , it was fun to chase your scared friends . However , this should stay in the game .
Tigers , and their habitats in real life , should be left alone . With the worrying decline in the Malayan tiger population and increasing human-tiger conflict incidents , the authorities and individuals must put much more effort to protect this critically endangered species .
These collective efforts must go beyond a mere declaration of commitment as we would love to leave our future generations with actual healthy , strong Malayan Tigers - not just the ones used as symbols or in games . p20 p20
