A long time ago , there was on orchard which was owned by a rich couple and filled with the most delicious tamarind trees
one day, a fairy decided to test the couples generosity. she came to the orchard, dressed as a poor, old woman and begged for the coulpe to give her a few fruits since she was very hungry.
can i have tamarind fruit?
the selfish couple let their dogs loose on her.the old women was bitten by the dogs and badly injured.
she touch the giant tamarind tree and cursed
your greed shall be punished
as the woman walked away, the sky darkened and ferocious storm broke out. the downpour continued untill late at night
next morning,the sky was clear and blue.the couple came to tend their orchard and they were bewilderd to find their entire orchard gone.instead,there was water everywhere. when they looked down into the water,they could still see their precious trees at the bottom of the lake. people call the lake "sampaloc lake" which means tamarind lake in english
