  The Legend of Ampalaya Long ago, all kind of vegetables lived in the town of Sariwa. There, Labanos and Mustasa merrily chased each other. Bawang, Sibuyas, Upo and Patola played patintero. Singkamas, Talong and Luya had fun with hide and seek while Kamatis and Kalabasa enjoyed their luksong baka. One day, a new vegetable spouted. His name was Ampalaya. He had a very pale complexion and was very blend to taste! Because he was soon overcome with envy. He became irritable and hot headed. He shout at all the vegetables who went near his trellis. “Don’t go near me! I don’t need you. Go away!” Thus  , all the vegetables of the town of Sariwa avoided Ampalaya. One humid night, Ampalaya thought of an evil  plan. “I must have taste, color, and beauty like the oth  er vegetables” whispered ampalaya himself. While other dreamt in sleep, Ampalaya carried out his plan. Quietly, he crawled closer to the trellis of his unsuspecting victims. He grabbed the sweetness of Kalabasa. He put away in a bayong the sourness of Kamatis and the spice of luya. From the window sill, he stole the fair complexion  of labanos. He also took the purpleness of Talong and the green cheeks of Mustasa. Ampalaya was very happy because previously no one would notice him but now, due to the stolen  features, he became a star. But then, as always, no secrets can be hidden for a long.

The strange vegetable are taking off one by one all its reserve traits and features, all their eyes are widened to know that it was ampalaya who took away all their traits. All the vegetables are very angry and they brought the incident to the Goddess of the land and they reported what ampalaya did to them. The Goddess were very angry because he stole all the beautiful traits and features of the vegetables. Ampalaya was very happy because he never received punishment from the Goddess instead it only shows angriness and dismayed. But after a  few moments, his looks started to change.  His skin started to have wrinkle because the smoothness and roughness of squash and tomato are fighting inside his body and also the different tastes of the other vegetables produced an unpleasant taste to him, he become bitter in taste and his color turned dark.
