Dear Sir,
Last Monday morning I bought a ticket to Solo at your agent at the Kalideres bus station. The price was Rp 70.000,00. According to the agent, the bus that was going to take me to my destination was air-conditioned and had reclining seats. The bus was also equipped with video programs.
At about 2 p.m, I arrived at the bus station and became very disappointed. The bus was really different from the one told by your agent. The bus was not air-conditioned. It did not have reclining seats, either. When I complained about this, the agent just said that it was the bus to leave for that day. It was a nightmare for me to be on your bus. To tell the truth, I am very disappointed in your agent’s deception. Anggrek Indah, as a matter of fact, is not so nice as its name.

Yourd truly,

Once upon a time, there lived a well-to-do but childless couple. They owned a garden that was filled with sweet tamarinds (sampaloc) which became famous all over the island and beyond. In order to make sure that no one would enter their yard and steal their tamarind, the couple built a fence around the yard and placed a watchdog to guard it.
Testing the hospitality of the couple, a fairy disguised as a poor old woman, went to the couple and begged for some tamarind to relieve her hunger. The couple did not even look at the old woman and  instead of yielding to her appeal, they became very angry and drove her away by letting the ferocious dog loose. The old woman was badly hurt.
Before she turned away from the couple, she touched the tamarind tree and said, "You shall be punished for your selfishness." Then she slowly went away. The sky suddenly became overcast even before the old lady was out of sight. A terrible storm broke out and heavy rains fell through the night.
The next morning, the couple went through their usual routine. Instead of tall green tamarind trees, the couple was startled to see a vast expanse of water. Unconvinced of what happened, they went forward to the bank of the lake and saw through the transparent water the tamarind trees still rooted to the sunken ground.
From that day on, the place became known as "Sampaloc Lake," (sampaloc being the Filipino term for tamarind).
