Alamat ng Lamok (Legend of the Mosquito)

In the old days in a faraway kingdom, there was a little princess who had a habit of frolicking in puddles. She had a toy sword which she used to poke at the servants. It was her wont to weave stories which she whispered to the people of the kingdom.

As a result, the kingdom was beset with unhappy events. Read in this legend the origin of the mosquito and why it buzzes the ears and sucks blood.
