So the cat is out of the bag. I was never a sportsman, much less a soccer fan or player. Perhaps it was because of the allergic reaction of my limbs to grass. But that was a different story.
In my youth days, we used to make low-rise stools to provide posterior support while we worked on household chores like washing and cooking or even while playing games.
All that were needed were a piece of wooden plank (preferably half-an-inch thick at least), a handsaw, some nails and a hammer. Just had the plank sawn into 3 suitable sizes and then bang-bang…voila, we had our “bangku”. Length and breadth were flexible — could be custom to suit any bum size.
By the way, Penang Hokkiens call them in such Hokkienized way, that one would think “bangku” is a Chinese term.
