[example 1]
I was poor in my village and so I went to Klungkung. I didn’t take anything at all but I had a supply of willpower. At the market in Klungkung I became a labourer. I went around selling corn. (And later) I was very happy to find someone who helped me to find work even though I was still a worker in a shop. Every day I went shopping in the market at Klungkung where I bought serombotan (a special vegetable dish from Klungkung). And there I met a homeless person asking for money. While she looked shabby, from inside she radiated an aura of beauty. I felt sorry for the young beggar girl who begged for money every day. So I decided to help her to find a better kind of work. Work in a shop. In no time at all, this beggar girl became a beautiful woman after working in the shop. After a while, because we met every day, we became attracted to one another and decided to become lovers. The story ends with my surprise when I visited her village to find that she had a very nice house whereas she together with some family members and her mother had been beggars in the town.
