English Translation:

The story of The Chocolate hills of Bohol written in Badlit / Bisaya Baybayin

Many years ago, at the foot of Happy Mountain,
there lived a wealthy couple who had an only daughter.
The daughter was good-looking, but she was arrogant,
mean, and lazy. She was called Amada. The couple had a
neighbor, a wise woman and mother of twins. The twins
were called Ruben and Teresa. They were kind to
everyone, and they grew to love God’s creatures around
them. Everyday they knelt and bowed their heads to pray.

One bright morning Amada, Ruben, and Teresa were
playing in Amada’s garden when an old woman came by
and begged for alms. Ruben and Teresa dug into their
pockets but did not find anything. So Teresa took off her
pearl necklace and gave it to the beggar. Amada did not
like the idea. She tried to grab the necklace. She threw
stones and splashed water at the beggar. However, the
beggar did not let go of the pearls.

Instead, she shouted angrily, “You are unkind and
rude. I’ll take you somewhere to teach you good
manners. On the other hand, the kind children will be
rewarded.” The woman took Amada away. Ruben and
Teresa went to Amada’s parents and told them what had
happened.
Although Amada lived with the old woman, who turned
out to be a fairy, she still did not change her ways. She
slung sticks at the fairy and did other mean things. The
fairy promised to give Teresa’s pearls to Amada if she
would become good.

One night Ruben heard a call. He thought it was
Amada. So he went out with Teresa and headed towards
where the voice seemed to have come from. They walked
and walked until they reached the house of a giant. The
giant was happy to see them. He thought his supper was
assured that night. The giant’s wife begged him not to eat
the two children. The stars began to fall. Little brown
soldiers came in line and fought the giant. When the fight
was over, Amada had become a changed girl. She became
very kind. She was also happy to be with Teresa and
Ruben again.

The brown soldiers ran away with the children until they
reached home safely. The pearls that Amada received from
the fairy were scattered into the fields as a symbol of
kindness and humility. They became hard chocolate drops
and grew into chocolate hills. Today they are the famous
Chocolate Hills of Carmen, Batuan, and Borja in Bohol.

Si’Tukugu the Brave and Si’Manuku, Spirit of the Hills pass

Manuku design is inspired by Ashti work, since I don’t know how to draw a cute pikachu 😛

Tukugu design is inspired by the Visayan Lord customs, his carrying a Talibong sword from Leyte or Samar? I’m not sure. the tattoo design is inspired by the Bisayas Illustration on The Boxer codex manuscript, I made his teeth white since he hates to chew on betel nuts, he only eats fish  😛

Backstory:

Manuku is a Ancestral spirit Tarsier from the island of the hills, he found Tukugu in the ravaged village attacked by raiders from the other island, since then Manuku took care of Tukugu as he grew up, Manuku teaches Tukugu how to survive and to fight, Tukugu then left the Island of the hills with Manuku to look for the sacred artifacts pass down by Tukugu’s ancestral tribe that has been stolen by the raiders, along the way Tukugu met some other people from other places, then later joined Tukugu and Manuku for his adventure, finding the lost sacred atrifacts (to be continued)
