A long time ago, there was a large kingdom in South Sumatra. The kingdom was led by a king. The king had a daughter named Siti Fatimah. Siti Fatimah was known as a beautiful and kind daughter. She always helps anyone in trouble around the royal palace. Because of her beauty, many young men fell in love with her, but her father only blessed her daughter to marry a rich man who could provide benefits for the kingdom. One day a large ship landed at the dock of the Musi River. It turned out that the ship was from China. From a distance, there was a handsome young man named Tan Bun Ann, was a prince from the Chinese kingdom who wanted to discuss the trade between the Chinese and South Sumatra kingdom. Tan Bun Ann came to the kingdom to meet the king to discuss the cooperation. The king would cooperate with Tan Bun Ann as long as Tan Bun Ann wanted to share the profits with the king. Tan Bun Ann agreed to the king’s agreement and he decided to stay in South Sumatra for several months. In the afternoon, when Tan Bun Ann was walking around the palace, he met Siti Fatimah with her two servants who were watering flowers in the garden. Tan Bun Ann greeted the princess and immediately fell in love with her. The princess also gave her attention to Tan Bun Ann. They both promised to meet every time Tan Bun Ann came to the palace. Finally, they both became lovers. After a few months, Tan Bun Ann decided to propose Siti Fatimah. He came to the palace to meet the king. He conveyed his intentions and goals to the king that he would marry Siti Fatimah. The king agreed to the marriage plan if Tan Bun Ann gave him the bride price. Tan Bun Ann must give nine jars full of gold to the king as the bride price for his marriage to Siti Fatimah. Tan Bun Ann agreed to this requirement and would give it to the king as soon as possible.
