hey, let’s go to halong bay.

From Wikipedia:

According to local legend, when the Vietnamese were fighting Chinese invaders, the gods sent a family of dragons to help defend the land. This family of dragons began spitting out jewels and jade. These jewels turned into the islands and islets dotting the bay, linking together to form a great wall against the invaders. The people kept their land safe and formed what later became the country of Vietnam. After that, dragons were interested in peaceful sightseeing of the earth, and then decided to live here.

 

 

I can only conclude that my ancestors must have gotten into some hallucinogenic mushrooms that gave them trippy visions and probably super-aggressive strength to fight off and freak out the Chinese.
