Description:Translation (by Seng Pan) This is about a rabbit called Hkanghtang Mangbya (a popular trickster in Kachin folktales, who are a person or an animal that always lies and teases others). Once upon a time, Hkanghtang Mangbya had a tiger friend. One day, the tiger said, "Buddy, let's go to the forest and plough a field!" "Yes! Sure," Hkanghtang Mangbya replied. "Then get up early tomorrow. Cook your meal and bring it for lunch. I will also prepare mine. And let's meet at the tree near the village entrance," the tiger said. The next morning, the tiger got up early and cooked delicious dishes. He packed them for lunch and went to the tree. When he arrived there, Hkanghtang Mangbya wasn't there yet. Since Hkanghtang Mangbya always lied and teased others, he was sleeping without preparing the food. And he got up so late and followed his friend. As the tiger got bored of waiting him, he hung his lunch box bag on a branch and fell asleep. When Hkanghtang Mangbya reached there, he saw a lunch box bag and ate all the food without waking him up. After eating, he got into the bag and hid there. After a while, the tiger woke up and saw his friend wasn't there yet. So, he decided to go to the field alone. When he carried his lunch box bag, he felt it was a bit heavier than before. But he thought it was just the food. After ploughing the field, as he was so tired and hungry, he opened his lunch box. He saw his friend, Hkanghtang Mangbya was hiding inside it. Therefore, the tiger was so mad at him because he lied. And he fell for Hkanghtang Mangbya's trick.
