A long time ago, there lived a farmer with his two sons. They were adults and the farmer thought that it was time for them to get married by following their tradition. It said that any man who wanted to find a wife must cut a tree and see where it pointed. After that, the man must go that way until he found his soul mate.
The elder son already had a girlfriend and he knew how to cut a tree so it fell down to the direction of his sweetheart's house. On the contrary, the younger son, Mikko, did not have a girlfriend. So he cut a tree and unfortunately it fell and pointed to the forest.

His brother mocked him, “Hahaha...
Will you marry a monkey?“ Mikko ignored his brother. He believed in their tradition that his soul mate was waiting for him.
Mikko was in the jungle. He saw a hut. He knocked the door and someone replied, “Please come in. The door is not locked.“

A long time ago, there lived a rich man. He had a beautiful daughter named Mi Nuong. They lived in a palace with some maids. Their palace was near a river. The rich man did not allow his daughter to leave and play outside the palace.
He always asked her to stay in her room, at the top of the tower.

Mi Nuong often spent her time looking at the river. One day, he saw a man rowing his sampan.
The man sang a song beautifully.

“My love is like a blossom in the breeze.

My love is like a moonbeam on the waves.“
