The Monkey and the Crocodile

One day, there was a monkey. He wanted to cross a river. There he saw a crocodile so he asked the
crocodile to take him across the other side of the river. The crocodile agreed and told the monkey to
jump on its back. Then the crocodile swam down the river with the monkey on his top.

Unluckily, the crocodile was very hungry, he stopped in the middle of the river and said to the
monkey, “My father is very sick. He has to eat the heart of the monkey. So he will be health again.”

At the time, the monkey was in dangerous situation and he had to think hard. Then he had a good
idea. He told the crocodile to swim back to the river bank. “What’s for?” asked the crocodile.

river bank.”

The crocodile agreed and turned around. He swam back to the bank of the river. As soon as they
reached the river bank, the monkey jumped off the crocodile’s back. Then he climbed up to the top

The Legend of the Lalihote

Long ago, there lived a humble young man named Lalihote in a remote village of ancient Gorontalo.
One night, Lahilote who lived near a water spring which was the upper stream of a river and made a
living by collecting rattan in a nearby forest dream that was given a piece of such big rattan called
“Hutiya Mala”. The young man sprang up from his sleep upon the surprising dream.

A few days later on his way to the forest, Laholote chanced to glance down the river and see a group
of seven beautiful fairies who were bathing joyfully. The seven beauties left their “selendangs”, the
magic scarves they used as the wings, on the river-bank. Greed soon lured Lahilote to steal and
hide one of the selendangs. As they were aware of the presence of Laholote, the fairies soon
stopped bathing and go out of water and fetched their selendangs. They all flew to the heaven
leaving the poor one who cried and sobbed desperately because she could not find her selendangs.
Lahitole approached and comforted her, then brought her some proposed her to be his wife. The
beautiful accepted his proposal and soon they married.

One day, lahitole told his wife that he had go to the forest to collect rattan. His wife insisted to
accompany him but he did not let her go with him. To keep herself if busy Lahitole’s wife wondered
over the house amd by chance she found her lost selendang kept very carefully in a bamboo tube.
She felt very happy but at the same time very disappointed to know her husband’s unfairness. She
soon wear the selendang and flew away to the heaven leave her husband behind.

Lahilote got home happily because at that time he succeeded in collecting a great deal of rattan. But
soon he got very much disappointed to know that his wife had flown away and the bamboo tube
where he had kept the selendang was empty. At that very difficult moment, suddenly came a wise
Polahi (a certain tribe living in the forest) man who gave him a piece of magic rattan. He told Lahitole
that the rattan could bring him to the heaven. Eventually, Lahilote succeeded to fly to the heaven
and meet his beloved wife. Lahitole was allowed to stay in the heaven.

After some time, when his wife was looking for lice Lahilote’s head, she happened to see some
garying hairs among his. Soon she sprang up and got away from her startled husband. She told him
that no one with graying hair is allowed to stay in heaven. Upon his questions, she told her husband:
“Love fades away when you get a graying because here in heaven you are no more than a shadow
as soon as you get a piece of graying hair.”

Broken-heartedly, Lahilote got down from the heaven making use of a piece of board. He swore:
“From this point of Pohe beach up to the border of the shroud to cover my dead body, my left foot-
print will be printed forever.”

At the moment we can find a stone in the beach of Pohe, in the Province of Gorontalo with a foot-
print stamped on it. The locals believe that is the foot-print of Lahilote.

My brother, sisters and I went to spend our holiday in Bali. Each of us should ride the car at least
three hours. It was the last week of December 2008. We Left Solo on Saturday afternoon. We also
didn’t forget to bring our camera. On Sunday morning we arrived in Gillimanuk. We dropped for one
day at my uncle’s house. They had prepared breakfast when we arrived at his house. We had rice
and “ayam betutu”; really it was very hot but delicious.

On Monday we went to Denpasar Firstly we visited “Sanur” Beach. As it was still early in the morning
we could see the sunrise. We also prayed some moment on the sand then we looked for a hotel
because we have no relative who stayed there.

On that day we also visited “Kuta" Beach, Garuda Wisnu Kencana” and also “Sukawati” Market. We
had our lunch on the way when we felt hungry. At night we also enjoyed “Barong” Dance. Something
that we never forgot was taking pictures at any tourist resort.

One the last day we visited “Sangeh”. Where we could see many monkey. Many of them are still wild
and they sometimes bite visitor, from here we went straight to “Bedugul” lake, we went around it by a
small boat to see some temples at the other side. Unfortunately, it was raining so hard that we all so
wet. We changed our clothes there because we could also buy clothes at the shop near the lake.
Really it was so wonderful that I promise I want to visit Bali again next time.
