Summary
Ampalaya was pale and bland. He was envious of the taste, color and beauty of other vegetables in Sariwa town. Because of his greediness, he stole the sweetness of Kalabasa, the sourness of Kamatis, the spice of Luya and the fair complexion of Labanos. He also took the purple color of Talong and the green cheeks of Mustasa.
