In the traditional Indonesian story, especially in the Malay tribe, fable tales of grasshoppers are recorded. One of them erdapat in the story 'Watu Belah Watu Betangkup' (Stone Belah).
The story begins with the economic crush of a poor family. Since there were no more side dishes, the father took the initiative to catch grasshoppers as food. However, due to the carelessness of his wife, the locust came back loose. The husband immediately rebuke him, while the children crying hunger.
Finally, the mother cut a little meat on her body instead of grasshopper. After all the children and her husband are full, then he went quietly leave the house until finally to a big rock called the stone.
