SEEKING AT THE GREAT WALL

There was a young man, named Wan Hsi-liang, among those who had
been pressed into the service of building Emperor Shih Huang’s Great Wall. Wan
Hsi-liang had a beautiful and virtuous wife, whose name was Meng Chiang-nu.
For a long, long time after her husband was forced to leave her, Meng Chiang-nu
had no news of him. Her hatred of the wicked ruler grew apace with her longing
for the husband.
But even as the seasons changed, there still was no news about Wan Hsi-
liang. It was rumored that the Great Wall was being built somewhere way up
north where it was so cold that one could hardly dare stick one’s hands out of
one’s sleeves. When Meng Chiang-nu heard this, she hurriedly made cotton-
padded clothes and shoes for her husband. But who should take these to him when
it was such a long way to the Great Wall? Pondering the matter over and over, she
finally decided she would take the clothes and shoes to Wan Hsi-liang herself.
It was cold when Meng Chiang-nu started out and very lonely for her to walk by
herself. One evening, she failed to reach the town she was going to, so she spent
the night in a little temple in a grove beside the road. Having walked the whole
day, she was very tired and fell asleep as soon as she lay down on a stone table.
She dreamed her husband was coming towards her and a feeling of great
happiness enveloped her. But then he told her that he had died and she cried
bitterly. When she woke in the morning, she was overwhelmed by doubts and
sadness as she remembered this dream. With curses on the emperor, Meng
Chiang-nu continued on her journey.
Meng Chiang-nu walked on until, one day, she came to a deep valley
between the mountain. She walked a long time through the valley without finding
a single house. All she could see were weeds, brambles and rocks. It was getting
so dark that she could no longer see the road. She decided to spend the night
among some bushes. As she had not eaten anything for the whole day, she
shivered all the more violently in the cold. Thinking of how her husband must be
suffering in the icy cold weather, her heart contracted with a pain as sharp as a
knife. When Meng Chiang-nu opened her eyes the next morning, she found to her
amazement that the whole valley and her own body were covered in a blanket of
snow. How was she to continue her journey?
While she was still at a loss as to what to do, a crow suddenly alighted
before her. It cawed twice and flew on a short distance, then sat down again in
front of her and cawed again twice. Meng Chiang-nu decided that the bird was
inviting her to follow its direction and so she resumed her travel, a little cheered
because of the company of this living creature. And so, she walked on passing
mountain ranges and crossing big rivers and small streams.
Many dreary days had passed before Meng Chiang-nu at last reached the
Great Wall. She walked along the Great Wall, trying to find her husband among
those who were toiling there. She asked after her husband, but nobody knew
anything about him. Her anguish over her husband’s unknown fate increased and
she shed many bitter tears as she continued her search.
At last, she learned the sad truth. Her husband had died long ago because
of the unbearably hard toil, and his body had been put underground where he fell,
under the Great Wall. Hearing this tragic news, Meng Chiang-nu fell into a
swoon. Some of the builders tried to revive her, but it was a long while before she
regained consciousness. When she did, she burst into a flood of tears for several
days. Many of the toilers wept with her. So bitter was her lament that, suddenly, a
length of over two hundred miles of the Great Wall came crumbling down while a
violent storm the sand and bricks whirl about in the air.
“It was Meng Chiang-nu who, by her tears, caused the Great Wall to
crumble!” the people along the edifice told one another with amazement. At the
same time, they were filled with hatred of the cruel emperor who caused nothing,
but misery to his subjects.
When the emperor heard how Meng Chiang-nu had brought part of his
Great Wall down, he immediately went to see for himself what sort of person she
was. He found that she was as beautiful as a fairy, so he asked her to become his
wife. Meng Chiang-nu, who hated him so deeply for his cruel ways, would of
course not consent to his. But she felt a ruse would serve her purpose better than
frankness, so she answered: “Yes, I will, if you do three things for me. The first is
that you bury my husband in a golden coffin with a silver lid on it; the second is
that all your ministers and generals go into mourning for my husband and attend
his funeral; the third is that you attend his funeral yourself, wearing deep
mourning clothes as your own son would do.”
Being so taken with her beauty, the emperor consented to her requests at
once. Everything was, therefore, arranged accordingly. But when Meng Chiang-
nu saw her husband properly buried, she cried bitterly for a long time. Then, all of
a sudden, she jumped into the river that flowed close by the tomb. The emperor
was infuriated at being thwarted in his desires. He ordered his attendants to pull
her out of the water again. But before they could seize her, Meng Chiang-nu had
turned into a beautiful, silvery fish and swam gracefully out of sight deep down
into the green-blue water.
THE LEGEND OF REDHILL STORY FROM SINGAPORE

Once upon time there were many swordfish in the sea near Singapore.
These swordfish caushed a great deal of trouble. They flew into boats and
sometimes killed fishermen. There were so many of these swordfish that the raja
decided to kill them.

people came to watch the battle, and among them was a very clever little boy. The
little boy watched the soldier in their uniform, their long swords shining in the
sun. he thought to himself that he would like to be a soldier when he grew up.

beach and waited for the swordfish to attack. Soon the swordfish came leaping
and flying across the water. Wave after wave of then came. They noses, and many
soldiers died.
Suddenly the little boy saw the raja sitting sadly beneath a tree. He ran to
raja and said. “Please, Sir. I think I know how to stop the swordfish.”
“Do you. Indeed, little boy?” said the raja looking to cut at the boy’s bare
feet and ragged clothes.
“Yes, Sir,” the boy said. “Tell the soldiers to take those banana trees over
there. Then tie the trees together to make a wall to stop the fish.”
“That’s a wonderful idea,” said the raja. He turned to his captain. “Why
didn’t you think of that, Captain? Tell your men to start at once.”
The captain looked angrily at the little boy before he told his men what to
so. The soldiers cut the banana trees and tied them together with strong ropes.
They used more ropes to pull the wall to the edge of the water. This time, when
the swordfish came, they flew out of the water and their swords stuck in the wall
of banana trees. They couldn’t move, and so it was easy for the soldiers to kill
them.
“Well done, men.” Said the raja to the soldiers. “And thank you, little
boy,” he said to the boy.
The little boy bowed to the raja and ran back to his home on the hill by the
sea. The raja thoughtfully watched him go. That’s very clever child,” he said to
the captain.
The captain was still angry because the boy had made him look stupid.
“Perhaps, Sir, he is too clever. Clever little boy can grow into dangerous man.”
The raja thought about this, and the more he thought the more he worried.
A few days later the captain came to see him again.
“Sir” he said. “I am worried about that little boy. He is too clever. Some
day, he will make a lot of trouble for us.”
“You are right, Captain,” said the raja. “I think we should stop him now,
before it’s too late.”
“Good,” said the captain. “I’ll take care of it tonight.”
That night the captain and some of his soldiers climbed the hill where the
little boy lived. They quietly went into his house and killed him with their swords.
The little boy’s blood ran freely down the hill. Soon the whole hill had
turned red, and it is red to this every day. When the people heard what raja’s
captain had done, they named this place Redhill. And even now, they remember
the story of the clever little boy who stopped the swordfish.
STORY TELLING “CINDERELLA”

with her father and mother. until her mother died dead and her father had married
a widow with two daughters. Her stepmother didn’t like her one little bit. But, for
the poor unhappy girl, there was nothing at all. Her stepmother has two daughters
and they were very bossy. No rest and no comfort. She had to work hard all day.
Only when evening came was she allowed to sit for a while by the fire, near the
cinders. That’s why everybody called her Cinderella.
Cinderella used to spend long hours all alone talking to the cat. The cat
always said, “Miaow“, which really meant, “Cheer up! You have something
neither of your stepsisters has and that is beauty.” It was quite true. Cinderella,
even dressed in old rags, was a lovely girl. While her stepsisters, no matter how
splendid and elegant their clothes, were still clumsy, lumpy and ugly and always
would be.
One day, beautiful new dresses arrived at the house. A ball was to be held
at the palace and the stepsisters were getting ready to go. Cinderella didn’t even
dare ask if she could go too. She knew very well what the answer would be:
“You? You’re staying at home to wash the dishes, scrub the floors and turn down
the beds for your stepsisters.” They will come home tired and very sleepy.
Cinderella sighed, “Oh dear, I’m so unhappy!” and the cat murmured “Miaow.”
Suddenly something amazing happened. As Cinderella was sitting all
alone, there was a burst of light and a fairy appeared. “Don’t be alarmed,
Cinderella,” said the fairy. “I know you would love to go to the ball. And so you
shall!” “How can I, dressed in rags?” Cinderella replied.
The fairy smiled. With a flick of her magic wand Cinderella found herself
wearing the most beautiful dress she had ever seen. “Now for your coach,” said
the fairy; “A real lady would never go to a ball on foot! Quick! Get me a
pumpkin!” “Oh of course,” said Cinderella, rushing away. Then the fairy turned to
the cat. “You, bring me seven mice, and, remember they must be alive!”
Cinderella soon returned with the pumpkin and the cat with seven mice he
had caught in the cellar. With a flick of the magic wand the pumpkin turned into a
sparkling coach and the mice became six white horses, while the seventh mouse
turned into a coachman in a smart uniform and carrying a whip. Cinderella could
hardly believe her eyes.
“You shall go to the ball Cinderella. But remember! You must leave at
midnight. That is when my spell ends. Your coach will turn back into a pumpkin
and the horses will become mice again. You will be dressed in rags and wearing
clogs instead of these glass slippers! Do you understand?” Cinderella smiled and
said, “Yes, I understand!”
Cinderella had a wonderful time at the ball until she heard the first stroke
of midnight! She remembered what the fairy had said, and without a word of
goodbye she slipped from the Prince’s arms and ran down the steps. As she ran
she lost one of her slippers, but not for a moment did she dream of stopping to
pick it up! If the last stroke of midnight were to sound… oh… what a disaster that
would be! Out she fled and vanished into the night.
The Prince, who was now madly in love with her, picked up the slipper
and said to his ministers, “Go and search everywhere for the girl whose foot this
slipper fits. I will never be content until I find her!” So the ministers tried the
slipper on the foot of every girl in the land until only Cinderella was left.
Suddenly the fairy appeared and waved her magic wand. In a flash,
Cinderella appeared in a splendid dress, shining with youth and beauty. Her
stepmother and stepsisters gaped at her in amazement, and the ministers said,
“Come with us Cinderella! The Prince is waiting for you.“ So Cinderella married
the Prince and lived happily ever.
