Description:This zapal is a redemptive story about a rich man who was cruel and mean to one of his children. The child who sought to serve her father well laid salt and chili as condiments with his meal. He accused her of extravagance and waste, and banished her from his house. She then sought a living working as a waitress in a humble restaurant. Many years later when the rich man came to eat at the restaurant, the estranged daughter did not repeat the mistake of serving him with salt and chili. This enrages the father until he understands why and is reconciled with his daughter.
Bunaq "zapal" is an endangered form of fairy tale-like folk story traditionally told in the family group at night before going to sleep. With the arrival of electricity and television in Bunaq villages, the traditional night time forum for telling "zapal" has been lost. As a result, children know little or nothing of this aspect of Bunaq culture; only elderly community members and some adults know individual tales from the vast canon of "zapal" that the Bunaq once had. The "zapal" encapsulate and elucidate aspects of the Bunaq world view and their environment. The documentation of "zapal" therefores provide an unique perspective on the traditional livelihoods and beliefs of the Bunaq for researchers.
