The Football Match
My brother and I went to a football match yesterday. Our school team was playing against
another High School team. Our team wore red and white shirts, white shorts, and red stockings.
The other team wore orange and black shirts, orange shorts, and black stockings. “They look
like bees“, my brother said, and we laughed.
They played like bees too. They ran very fast, attacked very hard, and passed the ball
to each other very fast. Soon they scored their fi rst goal. My brother and I shouted and shouted,
“Come on, Valley School! Come on, the Valleys!” Our headmaster was near us and he was
shouting too. He seemed very enthusiastic. However, the high school scored another goal. We
were very sad.
Then, one of the “bees” stopped the ball with one of his hands, so our team got the
free kick. Our captain took it and scored a goal. We shouted, “Hooray!” The score was now 2:1.
That was better.
Now our team began to play better—or the “bees” were getting tired. Our team scored
another goal before half-time. In the second half of the match, both teams tried very hard, but
neither scored, so at the end the score was still two all.

Queen Aji Bidara Putih
Muara Kaman lies along the Mahakam River, in eastern Borneo. In the past the area was
a kingdom ruled by Queen Aji Bidara Putih. She was a typical queen of myths: beautiful, wise,
and sensitive. Many princes and kings proposed to her but she always refused them because
she was more concerned with ruling her country and guarding her people.
One day, a Chinese boat came to eastern Borneo. First, the people thought it was a merchant
ship but the boat was loaded with trade goods and highly trained soldiers. Their envoys brought
gold and porcelain to announce the marriage proposal from a prince of China. The queen didn’t
refuse instantly and replied that she had to ponder the proposal fi rst. After the envoys left the
palace, the queen called a court offi cer and ordered him to infi ltrate the Chinese boat to gather
information on the prince.
When night fell the offi cer sneaked onto the boat, got by all the guards, and fi nally found
the prince’s room. The large door would not open and he couldn’t fi nd a peek hole, so the offi cer
put his ear to the wall, trying to catch sounds from inside. He heard that the prince was having
his dinner and the noise of his chewing and slurping surprised the offi cer. It was like a boar that
he had once heard when he was hunting.
He quickly left the boat and returned to the palace. He reported that the prince must have
been a phantom, not a human. He believed that the phantom could be in a human’s form only
during the daytime. The queen was so surprised and got angry. On the next day, she refused his
The enraged prince ordered his troops to raid Muara Kaman. The battle was won by the
prince’s huge band of troops. As they drew near to the palace, Queen Aji Bidara Putih chewed a
leaf of betel vine and sang a mantra while holding it. When she threw it at the Chinese troops, it

them and sank the boat. The site of the sunken ship is now known as Danau Lipan (Lake of
Centipedes), with Chinese treasures hidden on the lake’s bed.

Kyai Jegod
Once upon a time there was a king who ruled Mataram Kingdom. His name is Amangkurat IV. He was the grandfather of Sultan. He often meditated in a nearby forest, called Garjitawati. One day, when a gardener was gathering grass for his cattle in the forest, he looked for some water because it was so hot. He found a small pond and when he was going to drink some water from it, a dragon came out of the underwater, but it was so friendly to him. The dragon said that if Sultan wanted to build his palace, it was supposed to be located in that forest. Then it disappeared. Then Sultan started to build the palace in that forest. He demanded strong and old woods and the forest where those woods lied was said to be home of genies and spirits. His lumberjacks could not _ nd anything to eat and the only thing they could have were some rice and water for three days, or sometimes they could not have anything. Then Sultan ordered that the main pole in the palace’s hall had to be built from special wood, which would give strong impression. One night, a servant who was sleeping in the forest heard loud and deep voice. The voice introduced itself as Kyai Jegod. The servant saw that Kyai Jegod was an old, tall, and massive tree. He said that he would voluntarily let himself be cut to make the main pole so that he could stay inside it forever. The servant told it to Sultan and Sultan let Kyai Jegod stay inside it forever, while Kyai Jegod became the protector of that palace since then.
