In the beginning of time, there was a man who was known for being the most hardworking in their village. Kalay was an ardent suitor of Mara, a lady known for her innate beauty.
But there was one creature who disapproved of Kalay’s courtship of Mara. He owned a golden sphere from which he drew his powers.
Find out in this modern legend how the golden sphere cast a spell that gave the Filipinos the first carabao.
