Within the deep layers ofthe skies, Gods and Goddesses lived in harmony looking down upon the earth.Among these Gods was Butando, a God that loved to feast on seafood.
Butando threw feasts very often, these feastswere for no one but himself. He loved to consume food, which explains hisenlarged stature. He didn’t care about anything but eating and his ownself-indulgence.
One day, during one ofhis feasts, a large fish fell down from his plate. He tried to catch it, but failed.
Due to this, he accidentally fell down from the sky and into the mortal world, landing on the small island of the Philippines.
His landing on the Philippines cause the large island to separate, forming the islands we know today.
The Gods, enraged by Butando’s gluttony, sunk him into the ocean and transformed him into a whale shark.
