down and died.

Text *2 (Myth)
Once upon a time in the heavens the Batara Guru commanded all the gods and goddesses to
contribute their power in order to build a new palace. Anybody who disobeyed this
commandment would lose his or her head.
Upon hearing the Batara Guru’’s commandment, one of the gods, Anta, was very anxious. He
didn’t have arms or legs and he wasn’t sure how he could possibly do the job. Anta was
shaped as a snake and he couldn’t work. He sought advice from one of his friends but
unfortunately his friend was also confused by Anta’s bad luck. Anta became very upset and
As he was crying three teardrops fell to the ground. Amazingly, after touching the ground
those teardrops became three eggs. His friend advised him to offer those eggs to the Batara
Guru hoping that he would give a fair judgement.
With the three eggs in his mouth Anta went to the Batara Guru’s palace. On the way there he
was approached by a black bird who asked him a question. He couldn’t answer because of the
eggs in his mouth but the bird thought that Anta was being arrogant. It became furious and
began to attack Anta and as a result one egg was shattered. Anta quickly tried to hide in the
bushes but the bird was waiting for him.
The second attack left Anta with only one egg to offer to the Batara Guru.
Finally he arrived at the palace and offered his teardrop (in the shape of an egg) to the Batara
Guru. The offer was accepted and the Batara Guru asked him to nest the egg until it hatched.
Miraculously the egg hatched into a very beautiful girl. He gave the baby girl to the Batara
Guru and his wife.
Nyi Pohi Sanghian Sri was her name and she grew up into a beautiful princess becoming
more and more beautiful as the days passed by. As her beauty grew every man who saw her
became attracted to her. Even her stepfather the Batara Guru started to feel an attraction
toward her.
Seeing the Batara Guru’s new attitude toward Nyi Pohaci, all the gods became so worried
about the situation that they conspired to separate Nyi Pohaci and the Batara Guru.
To keep the peace in the heavens and to maintain Nyi Pohaci’s good name, all the gods
planned for her death. She was poisoned and her body buried on earth in a hidden place. But

Bondowoso Love Story Long time ago, there was a love story in Bondowoso. The story
happened in a junior high school. A young boy fell in love with a young girl. The couple
loved each other. But unfortunately their parents didn't agree with the relationship. A few
years later, they were successful in the exam. They passed it well. The couple planned to
continue to senior high school. Actually, they wanted to go to the same school. But the fact
was different. The girl's parent wanted to send her girl to the Islamic boarding school in
another town. The time brought them to make a part. But, the distance couldn't separate. They
still had a good relationship using mail. They could have in touch using love letter. One day,
the boy sent his love letter again. 2 days time, he hoped the letter would have a reply. He
waited. Two days, three days, four days, until a week, the letter wasn't replied. The boy was
confused. He was upset to know that. He wanted to know her girlfriend's news. But, there
was no news at all until the end of the year. 2 years later that was a graduation party of senior
high school. The boy received a letter. It wasn't love letter from her girlfriend. But, it was an
invitation card. The card was for him. Inside he read "You are invited to come to our wedding
party, on August 8, 2004. Yours: Ana and David." The boy couldn't move. He felt his body
very heavy. He read again. He knew Ana was his girlfriend. Why did she send him an
invitation card like that? A moment later, the boy couldn't see anything in front of him. His
sight was black. He tried to walk, but he couldn't. He tried to shout, but no voice came out.
"What's happening to me?" the boy whispered.
