For the first time, let me introduce my self. OK my name is Alifya Nur Fatin Halimah . I’m from class 8Dhe. I want to tell you about the story of Malin Kundang. Here is the story,
A long time ago, there was a widow with her only son. They lived in a hut, in a village near the sea. They were very poor.
Malin Kundang is the son’s name, thought, “if i stay here, i won’t have a better life. I have to leave this village and look for a job.” His mother was sad to hear that. But she knew that Malin Kundang was right. So she let him go.
After her son had left, Malin Kundang’s mother went to the beach every day and prayed for her son safety. She hoped her son would return soon.
One morning, a beautiful big ship docked. There were Malin Kundang and his wife. Malin Kundang’s mother cried joyfully. “oh Malin Kundang my son! You are home!” she hugged the young man.
Malin Kundang did not believe her. He said, “She can’t be my mother! She was a strong woman when i left her.”
But his wife said angrily, “Why didn’t you tell me that your mother is poor and old?” then she spitted on the old woman.
The old woman cried. She could not believe what she heard. “Malin i’m your mother.” But Malin Kundang did not listen. He was embrassed to have an old mother. So he kick the old woman and yelled at her, “Go away ugly woman. My mother does not look like you at all.”
The old woman fell on the ground. She cried. Then she prayed, “My dear God, if he is really my son, so, punish him.”
After she yelled, there was a thunderstrom, it crashed the shore and destroyed everything. The villagers saw rocks that looked like a man. People believed that was, Malin Kundang he changed into coral reef. God had punished him.
OK. I think that’s all the Malin Kundang story. Thank you for attention, and good bye...
