The Legend of the Pineapple

A long time ago, a mother live in a remote area. The mother is Aling Rosa and her daughter is Pinang. Aling Rosa loved her only daughter. So she grew up in spoilt. Mother wants Pinang to learn about housework, but she always reasoned that she already knew what to do. So she just left her child be.

One day Aling Rosa became ill. She couldn’t get up and do housework. She ordered Pinang to cook the porridge. Pinang cooked the porridge but was neglected because she was playing with her friends. The porridge was attached to the pot and burned. Though instead of getting mad at Pinang she just took it out patiently and thought that she did not intend that to happen. The mother is thankful she was serve anyway.

Aling Rosa’s illness took a long time, so Pinang was forced to work at home. One day in her cooking she could not find the match. She asked her mother where it was. One time she was asking her mother where the ladle is. And it goes on and on as the days went by, Pinang always asked for things she is too lazy to look for. Aling Rosa got annoyed and lost her patience, she utters “I wish you grow many eyes so you could see well.”

Because she knows that her mother was angry, Pinang was silent and went on looking for the ladle. Nightfall and Pinang was not at home, Aling Rosa starts to worry. She calls out and nobody answer, so she looked all over the neighborhood to find her daughter. Her daughter was nowhere to be found.

A few days later Aling Rosa was already well. While she was in her garden, she noticed a plant that she has never seen before. She was amazed upon seeing that it has a fruit shaped like a human head and has a seemingly looking eyes all over it.

Aling Rosa suddenly recalled what she has said to Pinang that she wishes her to grow many eyes to see well. Aling Rosa was in tears and regrets at what she has spoken to her daughter. She took good care of the plant and called it Pinang, through the mouths of the people, Pinang later became Pineapple.
