    once there was a beautiful princess named maring. her hobby was to hunt animals in mount malindig. his father, king alab, was against her hobby. one day, maring saw a deer and followed it. but the deer belongs to a princely bearing man, duque. duque introduced himself to maring and offered the deer to her. they both had a mutual feeling of liking each other at first sight. the two often meet in the forest without the king’s consent.  

    maring had a lot of admirers from different kingdoms. his father decided to choose the guy, her daughter should marry. so the first challenge for the admirers of maring was to win a ship race. there were three suitors who insisted to join the race. duque was just a poor guy and could not afford to have a ship.this made maring unhappy so she prayed to bathala. bathala heard her prayer so he send strong winds and heavy rains during the race. the three suitors failed and died on the race. when the sea calmed, the kingdom saw three islands where the three ships sunk. so they called them “the three kings” (now melchor, gaspar, baltasar). the kingdom was sad about what happened but maring was happy.

    the king was afraid to risk another life so she allowed maring to choose. maring confessed her to duque. her father accepted it and they got married. they were so inlove to each other. they died together. the people love the couple and they   call their place after the two, maring and duque, now marinduque.

    makato and the cowrie shell - short story from thailand

    makato and the cowrie shell


    once upon a time there was a boy named makato. he was an orphan, and had no friends or family to take care of him. because he had to make his own living he did all kinds of odd jobs: chopping wood, feeding pigs, clearing and cleaning. he didn't mind to work hard, and despite his small wages he was satisfied with his life.

    he was only 4 when his mother passed away, but he remembered some stories she had told about the kind-hearted king of sukhotai. ever since he was small he wanted to meet this king. one day, when helping a friend to find food for elephants, he found so many branches that the friend offered him a job to become the assistant of the king's mahout. he worked hard cleaning elephants sheds and finding food. one fine morning makato's patience and hard work got rewarded: he was to accompany the king's elephant an a parade. as the king mounted the beast, in his splendid, shiny costume, he dropped a tiny cowrie shell. makato picked it up and held it out to the king. who told him to keep it.

    at the time the people of sukhotai used cowrie shells as money, and although one little cowrie had little value, he wanted to use it wisely. he went to the market to buy seeds, yet quickly realized he could not even buy the smallest bag of seeds, while he noticed a lettuce seed stall.

    "lady, if i dip my finger into this pile of seeds, can i take those that stick to my finger for one cowrie? ", he asked. "well why not", replied the sales lady, amused by his suggestion. makato carefully scraped the seeds from his finger and planted them, watering the tiny sprouts daily, until the garden was covered in fresh, green lettuce. proud as he was, he offered to king his first produce.

    "where did you get these, my boy? " the king asked surprised, and makato told him the story. he king was impressed by so much intelligence and industry that he offered him a fixed position at the palace.
