Ladies and gentleman
I would like to tell you about “Sedudo” waterfall
Once upon a time, lived a young man and a young woman as a family in resident Berbek. He is handsome and beautiful woman. They were rich couple but unhappy family. They had difficult problem about the principle of life. Her husband thought ; The life is from the GOD will back to the GOD. Everything is for the GOD. Properties and goods are not importance for him. But his wife thought : The live is for happy , rich and properties is very importance every things is for herself.
They couldn’t solve those problem. They came to a great man in Kuncir and suggested to do the best, work hard without thinking about the result. They back and did them all.
Time by time a month change years, They became very rich. His wife very happy everyday she is proud talks and thinks about her riches. She forgot her husband and the GOD. It made her husband more sad and angry. He left his wife and went to a holly man in Ngliman. He learned much about Islam. He like staying in quiet place and had meditation under a waterfall.He did it for many days event month. He forgot his wife.
One day he woke up and wanted to see his wife at home. But he was not find her. There was only an old woman with angry face.“ Go away ! This is mine.
She shouted. “Who are you an old woman?” He replayed. The old woman very angry to him and said many bad words. He was sad and confuse. Where my wife is ? Who the old woman is ? Why she very angry to me ? He though and though
but there was no answer so he decided to stay under the waterfall for his live as a widower. He did know that the women was his wife. She was old.
His wife stayed alone at home, no husband no child and no friend. She got old and weak. Her face was not beautiful. Everyone didn’t like her anymore. She was very sad and un happy. She decided to left the life and went far away. She didn’t want to see her husband and so lived at home. She stayed on the mountain under a waterfall as a widow for all her live. She is a trial widow.
