Yo-yo in Kuching

That day, I met this guy. His name is Ryan Chung. He said, he's crazy about Yo-yo and I told him "You are a Yo-yo freak!". I interviewed him:

Me : So how long have you been playing Yo-yo?
Ryan : Since secondary school.

Me : Where did you buy all these Yo-yo?
Ryan : Bought them online.

Me : Do you have a Yo-yo club in Kuching?
Ryan : Yes, and I am the president.

So...the interview was on and on but I cut it short here in case reader doze off (fall asleep) reading it. Hahaha...But when he demo his skill playing Yo-yo. I was shocked and amazed by his skill. If you guys want him to perform in your special function, feel free to contact me. Hehehe

A bit about Yo-yo:

It is believed that the yo-yo most likely originated in China. The first historical mention of the yo-yo, however, was from Greece in the year 500 B.C. These ancient toys were made out of wood, metal, or painted terra cotta disks and called just that, a disc. It was customary, when a child turned of age, to offer toys of their youth to certain gods. Due to the fragile nature of the material, it is presumed that the disks made of terra cotta (clay) were used for this purpose rather than for actual play. A vase painting from this time period shows a Greek youth playing with a yo-yo. Such vases, as well as an actual terra cotta disk can be found in the National Museum of Athens, Greece. (source)
