I played the white sands, I swam there and i saw some people practiced
rock climbing there. Siung beach was in Gunung Kidul, about 2 hours

Everybody agreed that aioga was a very beautiful girl. In fact, the villagers told her
that she the moost beautiful girls in their village. This made aioga vain. She became proud of
her beauty and each day looked at herself in the mirrors. She liked her looks so much
that daily she wen to look at herself in the stream that ran past her house.

One day, her mother asked her to wash the dishes. Aioga spent to much time
admiring her reflection in the dishes that her mother was annoyed “aioga, you are
becoming to vain and lazy. You do nothing but admire yourself each day. This has go to stop.
Even our neighbour are complaining. They say that you have become proud and wont talk to
their daugther mirror. She liked her looks so much that daily. She went to look at herself in
the stream that ran past her house.

Aioga sulked and refused to do any more work. She thought her mother wastreatring
her baidly. She became even lazier. Each day, she lay in bed until the sun was high in the
sky. Her mother did not know what to do with her.“Aioga, please go to the stream and fecth
some water. I want to bake some cakes for tea” said her mother. “but l may fall into the
water” said aioga. Her mother sighed. She was slowly losing patience with her daughter.
“hold on to a bush and you wont fall in.” “but the bush may fall into the stream” complained
her daughter. “but all the bushes by the stream have thorns and l may scratch my pretty
hands” sid the girl. Her mother grew steadily more impatient, “aioga, put on your mittents.
They wilnot only keep you warm but will also stop you from getting scatched” aioga then
complained that her mittens were torn. Her mother thn handed her a needle and thread. “
what if the needle breaks?” asked the girl. Aioga did not sew her mittens but instead spent
the time loking at herself in the mirror.

“but papa, what if the needle pricks my finger?” “ you can use a thimble made of
strong skin” he said. “but if the thimble is pierced l will hurt my figer” said the girl. Aioga is
younger sister, who wass good and sweet, came into the room. Cheerfully, she offered to
fetch the water. She ran to the stream, filled the bucked and then helped her mother bake
some cakes, her mouth began to water. They loke delicious. When she saw her mother give
her sister the cake, aioga ran out of the house to the stream. “aioga please dont be angry i
will share my cake with you”. She said. “Go away. I dont want anything from you. Just leave
me alone. “ aioga began to hit her sister again. As time went by she forgot how to speak. All
she remembered was her name, and whenever she saw anyone, she would say “ aioga!
Aioga! Ai-oga!” so that all would remember the village beauty who turned into a goose.
