State of Perlis in Malaysia
Amir tells of a tale involving his aunty’s home in northern part of Malaysia in the state of Perlis. Her aunty’s house is located at rural area and a cliff and is heavily forested. The house is also in dead end of a short road. It’s so secluded that it is a house where only family members will visit.
Amir’s aunty lives with her 2 young daughters and her late mother and his youngest sister. His aunty’s husband works overseas in Indonesia and he gets to get back once a year.
One night Amir’s aunty was sleeping with her 2 young daughters on their bed when she was woken up the loud sound of winds. She looked around about her and noticed that her the curtains was unmoving besides her bedroom’s window was shut. She had on a lamp and the fire was flickering before the fire was extinguished completely. She however, she had an old light lamp with an electric bulb which enough to light her bedroom.
All of a suddenly a woman with long frizzly and unkempt hair “walked” to her bedroom. She was dressed in white gown and she looked very angry and kept staring at her. Amir’s aunty thought she was going crazy and was too scared and terrified to even speak…she was so frightened that she did not even prayed!The ghost (is it a Pontianak) suddenly turned her back and went through the wall and into the other room. Amir’s aunty quickly woke her 2 daughters and only realized that the ghost have gone to the room…her sister’s room. Terrified but she grabbed a broom (a broom is the only instrument available – ha! ha!) and rush into her sister room – but the ghost was not there, except for her half asleep sister who was confused about the whole thing.
