Alamat ng Kawayan (Legend of the Bamboo Tree Part 1)

A very long time ago on a certain island there lived a family who was well-known and highly respected by the people. They ruled the entire village and whatever law they made were followed by the people. In fact, the villagers readily obeyed the laws that were just and fair which made them very powerful. This power was enjoyed and passed on to all their descendants.
After a long period of time, there arose a new heir to the throne whose style of government was a complete reversal of his predecessors. He was very cruel. His punishments were harsh and he showed no respect for anyone. (To be conitinued)
