The Legend of “Lau Kawar”

Meanwhile, an old woman was alone at home. She didn‟t go to the party because she was sick. When she felt hungry, she went to the kitchen. But there was no food there. She was very sad. In the party, the son remembered his mother was at home. He wrapped some rice and a fried fish for his mother. Then he asked his daughter to give the food to her grandma. The little girl ran home. But on her way, she stopped and eat the food. After eating the food, she wrapped the food again. When she arrived at home, she gave the food to the old woman.
