Once upon a time, on the north coast of Sumatra lived a poor woman and his son. The boy was called as Malin Kundang. However, as they were only fisherman’s helper, they still lived in poverty.
“Mother, what if I sail overseas? if I stay here, I’ll always be a poor man. I want to be a successful person,” said Malin kundang to his mother.
His mother wiped her tears, “If you really want to go, I can’t stop you. I could only pray to God for you to gain success in life. But, promise me, you’ll come home.”
In the next morning, Malin Kundang was ready to go.
“Ok mom I will go now… Please pray for me mom… See you mom… Bye…Bye…”
“Ok Malin… Please take care of yourself. I will always pray for you my son… Good bye…”
One day, Malin kundang met a beautiful girl. She was the daughter of his master. They fell in love each other and got married.
After several years waiting without any news, Malin Kundang’s mother was suddenly surprised by the arrival of a big ship in the pier.
“Waw… What a big & luxury ship…? Whose ship is that?”
When the ship finally pulled over, Malin Kundang’s mother saw a man who looked wealthy stepping down a ladder along with a beautiful woman.
Her blurry eyes still easily recognized him. The man was Malin Kundang, her son.
Do you think Malin Kundang will recognize her mother?
Malin Kundang’s mother quickly went to see her beloved son.
“Malin, you’re back, son!” said Malin Kundang's mother
But, Malin Kundang didn’t show any respond. He was ashamed to recognize his own mother in front of his beautiful wife.
“You’re not my Mother. I don’t know you. My mother would never wear such ragged and ugly clothes,” said Malin Kundang.
“Malin… Don’t you recognize me? I’m your mother!” she said sadly.
Malin Kundang’s face was as cold as ice and he said.
“Guard, take this old woman out of here,and give her some money so she won’t disturb me again!”
”Malin… my son. Why do you treat your own mother like this?”
"Go! And never once in a while you're annoying me and my wife," he shouted as he drove her mother .
“Supercharge you Malin! I am your mother .. but why do not you recognize me?! You are really an ungrateful child ..Oh my God! If he is really my son,Curse him into a stone ...!" she said, cryingly
Suddenly, malin kundang’s whole body turned into stone. He was punished for not admitting his own mother.
