      The Story of Waiting-For-Husband Mountain

      Once upon a time, there was a poor couple who had an 11-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter. One day, the brother accidentally left a scar his sister’s head while parents were away. So afraid of what he had done, he escaped and then was adopted by a fisherman in the coastal area of Binh Dinh.

      Later, the brother got married and had a child, living by fishing. Then, through the scar on his wife’s head, the brother discovered that his wife was his sister. So painful, the brother went to the sea and never came back. From the day of his departure, in ignorance of the truth, his wife waited for him with patience and resignation. Every afternoon, she took her son in her arms and climbed up the mountain at the gate of the sea looking out for the return of her husband. She made the same gesture for entire years. Then, she was changed into rock and immobile in her eternal wait.

      That rock is still on top of the mountain at the De Gi seagate of Phu Cat, Binh Dinh province. This mountain is known as “Nui Vong Phu” or The Mountain of the Woman who is waiting for her husband.

      Sue God for rain

      This legend explains why every time Toad grinds his teeth, sky has rain. The legend also honors the unity and justice.

      Once upon a time, there was no rain for long, long time. Rivers had no water, the ground cracked all over, all plants withered, and animals had to suffer from thirsty. Witnessing this, there was a toad that tried to find way to the heaven to sue God and requesting for rain on the earth to save all species. He departed his trip and on the way to the heaven he was supported and followed by a crab, a bee, a fox, a bear and a tiger. Under the Toad’s command, his group won the heavenly soldiers. This made the Jade Emperor to order a Black Dragon to spray rain and bring the group back to the earth. The rain saved all species. Since then, whenever Toad grinds his teeth, rain will come. That’s why there is a Vietnamese saying:

      Toad is God’s uncle
      You beat Toad, God beats you.

Through the beautiful love story between Chu Dong Tu and Princess Tien Dung, the legend represented the desire for freedom of love and happy marriage, the dream of a prosperous life and a developed society.

After his father's death, Chu Dong Tu left the loincloth buried with his old father with no garment, the poor boy had to go fishing at night. During the day he sold his catch to the people from the boats passing along the river while let his body immersed in the water up to his waist. One day, Princess Tien Dung who was blessed with truly divine beauty, with a large number of servants and guards rowed a boat for sightseeing. When Chu Dong Tu heard the sound of gongs and drums and saw many servants, he became frightened and quickly dug a hole in the sand to cover himself. Taking a liking to the picturesque surroundings, the princess expressed a desire to bathe there. Coincidentally, the spot she chose to bathe in was exactly where Chu Dong Tu was hiding. After knowing the reason and recognizing how only fate could have allowed their paths to cross each other, Tien Dung decided to marry him. Fearing her father’s anger, Tien Dung did not return the palace and settled with her husband in Ha Tham. They held a market and earned a living by trading. The market has gradually expanded with large streets and foreign merchants. Chu Dong Tu met a Buddhist priest named Phat Quang. He was initiated into the secrets of Buddhist path. Besides, he was given a stick and a miracle hat. After that, he shared things he learned from the monk to his wife. The couple left the village and looked for a deserted place to stay. Thanks to the hat and the magic stick, they had a splendid palace with many soldiers. The news spread to the king. He thought that they were rioting and sent soldiers to destroy his daughter’s kingdom. When the soldiers came to the place, the palace with Chu Dong Tu and Tien Dung had risen into the air and disappeared, found a marshy pond and a sandy beach instead.

      The Top 10 on ScoreBoard now:

    • 3:00 UTC: 1 hour has passed and the contest is getting interesting and thorny with more and more teams taking part in. The score board records 128 teams getting point and we can see familiar names such as Shellphish, dcua, BabyPhD and so on.

    • 2:41 UTC: coconutCoffee again, they have submitted flag for challege Re01 to get 500 point more, opening a new legend 'Thanh Giong'. They are on the Top of the Scoreboard, following by Spaceballs from United States.
      [Thanh Giong (God Gióng) is one of the four immortal saints in Vietnam, along with Son Tinh, Chu Dong Tu and Mau Lieu Hanh. Thanh Giong symbolizes the spirit of fighting against invaders and the strength of unity.

      In Hung King VI, there was a husband and a wife who were hardworking and kind but had no children. One day, the wife went to work and saw a huge footprint, she tried to put her feet on it. Then she had 12-month pregnant and gave birth. Her son was handsome, but he did not say anything or laugh at all, although he was 3 years old.

      When the country was invaded, the King Hung looked for talents to save the country. At that time, the three-years-old boy said his first words about fighting against invaders. He asked the king to give him an iron horse, an iron rod and an iron armor. He said to his mother: "Please do not worry about the invaders, but please feed me a lot!" The mom cooked rice for Giong to eat, pot by pot, after each pot, Giong grew up a little more. Neighbors donate rice, cloth for Giong. After eating all the food, Giong turned into a hero, wearing armor, riding iron horses, iron rods and rushed to the battle to kill the invaders. The iron rod was broken during the fight. The hero took the bamboo along the road to make weapons. When the country was in peace, the hero flied to the sky. The King called Giong as Phu Dong Thien Vuong (Phù Đổng sky king) and built a temple at his hometown.]
