One day, when Ah Lan was on his way to work in a nearby forest, he saw three ugly men. He was afraid and climbed a tree and hid. The three men stopped in front of a large rock. One of them said, “Ai, ai, ai,” and the door opened in the rock. Ah Lan was surprised to see them place some gold inside. When they had gone, he climbed down from the tree and stood in front of the rock.
