When the king heard the prince say he wanted to marry the princess, he immediately threw the young man into prison. A few days later, the princes escaped, and he went to the lake. There he saw the princess. “Come with me to the west,” he said. “we can be married in my father’s palace, and my family will welcome you as my wife,”
“Are you sure it will be all right?” asked the princess. “Yes, but we must hurry.”
The princess wrapped her jewels and a beautiful fan in a length of silk. Then she took the prince’s hand, and together they ran towards the west, away from her father’s guards. In her hurry, the giant princess dropped her bundle. In the darkness, she was able to find her shiny jewelry, but not her fan. “I’ve lost my fan, my beautiful fan,” she cried.
The princess could hear the guards coming closer. “Come, my dear,” he said “we cannot waste any more time. I’ll buy you another they fled to the Western Lands where they were married. The beautiful fan that the giant princess dropped, fell to earth in what is now Malaysia. Some time later it flated down a river to the sea where it caught on some rocks and turned into an island. This island is now called Singapore.
Terjemahan The Legend of Singapore
Pada hari-hari panjang berlalu, dunia dibagi menjadi dua bagian, dan setiap bagian itu rulled oleh seorang raja raksasa yang kuat. Tanah Timur yang panas dan basah, sementara tanah Barat yang dingin dan gelap. Kadang-kadang ada perang antara raksasa dari dua tanah, tapi cerita terjadi ketika ada damai.
