"Long long ago, on the top of Mount Kinabalu in Borneo, there lived a dragon. He owned a large and beautiful pearl. Every day he played with it, rolling it back and forth like a ball. People believed he controlled the weather with it. The Emperor of China came to hear about this pearl. Emperor: I wish to get possession of that pearl. Let me call my sons Wee Ping and Wee San. Wee Ping: Father, tell us what we should do ? Emperor: I heard that on the top of Mount Kinabalu, in Borneo a dragon has a pearl. I would like to have it for myself. Wee San: Do not worry father, we will bring it. Emperor: Exactly, I would like you both to go and bring it. Wee Ping: We will make arrangements for our journey and will start as early as possible. Emperor: Ok. After few days, the Princes together with one hundred soldiers, set sail for Borneo in ten sailing junks. Emperor: Take care, my sons. Come back with the pearl. Bye. Wee ping: Brother, we have reached Borneo; let us immediately find out the famous mountain, Mount Kinabalu. They reached the mount. Wee San: Brother, I think this is going to be a difficult job. The slopes are rugged. Wee Ping: Having come here, we somehow need to go up. They reached the top. Wee San: Look out, the dragon. The dragon guarded his cave very fiercely and killed many of their soldiers. Wee Ping: All of you, let’s return back. Wee San: (to himself) I have an idea. Let me climb a tall tree so that I could see the dragon’s cave. So Wee San climbed a tall tree and noted what time the dragon left his cave to hunt for food and what time he returned to it. Wee San: Now I order you that you make a fake pear and a large kite, a kite which will carry me. Next day Wee San waited until the dragon left his cave. Then he placed the fake pearl in a bag, slung it across his shoulder and climbed on the kite. Wee San: Now release the thread. The kite flew up to the mountain-top. Wee San went inside and exchanged the real pearl for the fake one, and then his brother pulled his kite back to the ground. Wee San: Come on brother, we need to leave this place immediately. They set sail for China. Meanwhile, the dragon returned to his cave. He began to play with the pearl. He soon realized it was a fake! Furiously he climbed down the mount and followed the ship. Wee Ping: Look, the dragon is following us, we need to do something. Soldiers, fast, heat up the cannon ball till it is red hot. Then fire it at the dragon. The angry dragon thought it was his pearl and swallowed it in one gulp! He gave a blood curdling roar. And then, squirming in pain, he sank slowly beneath the waves. The brothers continued their journey and sailed home safely. Emperor: Oh my dear sons, how are you! Wee Ping: Father, here is the pearl you dreamed. Emperor: I am thrilled, I will arrange for a great party to celebrate my sons’ return. Wee Ping: Father, listen to our adventure…. Wee Ping told the Emperor and everyone about their adventure but he never once mentioned Wee San’s clever ideas. Wee San was hurt but he kept quiet. He loved his elder brother and didn’t want to embarrass him in front of so many people. Emperor: I am pleased with your valour and courage. I give this pearl to you. Keep it for yourself. Wee San left the place quietly. Emperor: My younger son is so quiet. I knew that Wee San must have helped his brother to get the pearl. I need to make him happy. Emperor next day ordered to make a magnificent copy of pearl be made and gave it to Wee San. Emperor: Do not be unhappy that your brother has the genuine pearl. Remember, the love between brothers is worth more than all the pearls in the world. Wee san: Thank you father, I will remember your words. Wee san: I feel sad and unhappy the way brother treats me. But I will never tell anyone how unfair he is. I will leave China and seek a new life elsewhere. He set sail and reached the land of Brunei. There he was welcomed by the Sultan of Brunei who immediately developed a liking for the gentle Chinese Prince. Over the years they became the best friends. Sultan of Brunei: Wee San, I know you love my daughter. I will arrange for your marriage. Their marriage took place in a grand way. Sultan of Brunei: I announce that Wee San is my successor. Wee San: I will be a good ruler. Wee San realized what happiness he had found in Brunei even though he had lost the dragon’s pearl to his brother. Wee Ping, on the other hand, never found real happiness. His life was very empty without Wee San and the dragon’s pearl never made up for the loss of his brother’s love and friendship. "
