One evening after a full day of heavy rains a perfect rainbow stretched across the sky to the west a half circle shining brilliantly with seven rows of colorThe right end of the rainbow departed from the Genting Delta like a sparkling carpet The left end was planted in the dense pine forest at the slopes of Selumar Mountain The rainbow curved resembling millions of maidens wearing colorful kebayas jumping down into a remote lake hiding bashfully because of their beautyWe soon invaded the filicium tree climbing up and claiming our own separate branches After every rain we climbed up the tree to watch the rainbows Because of this habit Bu Mus nicknamed us Laskar Pelangi Laskar means warriors pelangi means rainbow so literally Rainbow Troops
