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 socks. The other team wore orange and black shirts, orange shorts, and black socks. “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 first 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 a 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 princess and kings proposed to her but she always refused them because she was more concerned about 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 first. After the envoys left the place, the queen called a court officer and ordered him to infiltrate into the Chinese boat to gather information on the prince.
When the night fell, the officer sneaked onto the boat, passed all the guards and finally found the prince’s room. The large door would not open and he couldn’t find a peek hole, so the officer put his ear to the wall, trying to hear sounds from inside. He heard that the prince was having his dinner and the noise of his chewing and slurping surprised the officer. 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 proposal.
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 place, Queen Aji Bidara Putih chewed a leaf of betel vine and sang mantra while holding it. When she threw it at the Chinese troops, it turned to giant centipedes. The Chinese troops started to retreat but there centipedes chased them and sank the boat. The site of the sunken ship is now known as Danau Lipan (Lake of centipedes), with Chinese treasure hidden on the lake’s bed.
