This story was told by a friend in Kuching. The true incident happened at his kampung across the river from pending, which is nearby to the current toll bridge.
One day, back in the late 70’s, one of the kampung people who was working at the old JKR building in Pending (located at the current PUSPAKOM), was returning home from work. Back then there was no bridge connecting to the village and the only way to cross river was by “perahu tambang”.
As he reached the small jetty at his kampung, he saw another fellow villager, who is also his colleague at JKR, sitting under a tree nearby, motionless. Thinking that the friend probably fainted, he placed his friend’s head on his lap. He kept talking to his friend but there was still no response.
Upon further checking, he found that his friend was not breathing and there was no pulse. The friend was dead. Most probably by heart attack..
But suddenly, the eyes opened, starring directly at him. He panicked at first, but he then said “Stop this! Please respect the dead”. He knew what was going on. The friend had turned into a Hantu Bangkit !
You see, the friend that passed away has a family history of turning into hantu bangkit. As the other elderly kampung villagers said, he was cursed. It was said that long time ago, their descendant have one time chopped down a big kedondong tree (Kedondong - ambarella, otaheite apple, or great hog plum) that was blocking sunlight to their kampong. There were spirits living in the old tree and this made it unhappy. The man and his future generations were cursed into becoming hantu bangkit when they died.
The dead villager was buried immediately. The whole kampung villagers knew about the incident. After the funeral, everyone stayed home after dark, safely locking themselves in, as they knew the hantu bangkit will roam the kampung at night. True enough, upon checking the next morning, the kampung was filled footsteps with dirt from the very cemetery the dead villager was buried in. This goes on for 7 days.
My friend was in primary school when it happened and every elders at the kampung can still recall the incident.
So be careful when you chop down any old tree, you never know what might be living in it….
Karak highway is famous of its haunted ghost story. One night, 4 college students, Nik, Zura, Jack & Ida is on their way to Kuantan. They feel frustrated to stuck in the hectic traffic, therefore they use the old Karak highway.
They stop on a village to buy some food while Jack went to look for toilet. On his way, he discover a young school boy and a Malay woman who drop her head off on the head. He freaked out and went back to his gang. They continue their journey but an old yellow volkwagen cut pass them twice, Jack loss his focus and try to avoid a kid on the middle of the road while the whole car crash down a slope.
Zura was threw out of the car and met a nanny ghost who chase after her till she met her 3 friends. They decided to walk back to the highway and saw a house in the middle of the woods. They went there and saw Tok Malam who own the house and agreed to let them stay there for one night. But inside the house, thing started to get worse. Zura wear a necklace and was caught by evil hair spirit in the room; Jack & Nik both were attack by an evil spirit who look like Zura; Ida went shower behind the house and was attack by the nanny spirit.
While Tok Malam ask the evil to let them alone. All 4 were back in the house to rest. They take turn to awake and guard and Ida is the first one. Ida was called by her brother's spirit who also met an accident on the Karak highway. She went out follow her brother, her brother blame her for cursing him and try to run over Ida with his motorcycle. Ida slip and fall down slope while poking her head through a stone.
Jack went out the house too finding his wound get worse and he kept on peeling off the skin and eat it. Zura awake and freak out when she found out Tok Malam is doing some magic in his room. Zura wakes Nik and both of them trying to run for escape. They ran through a cemetery and Nik fell into an empty graveyard. Multiple evil spirit including the nanny, malay lady & her son, Ida & Jack's spirit surrounded Zura. Zura freak off but was yell by Tok Malam at aside to read her Al-Quran by understanding the meaning. Zura read and scare the evil spirit away.
Next morning, Zura and Nik ran back to the highway. They saw ambulance at roadside and went to have a look. They discover that Nik was actually dead but his own spirit did not realize that. Tok Malam told Zura to let Nik spirit go.
A few years back, around 1989 (I was 12 years old, now 30) I was living in my dad's house (office, later was converted to a house). The house was owned by his boss. This incident happened on Saturday evening about 2:00pm. My house doesn't have water supply. Thus, we need to get the water from the factory nearby. It's about 800m from the factory to my house. It's always a headache for us to pick the water from bucket and have to walk about 800m every time we need the water. My parent decided to used a plastic hose. We fixed the hose to the factory water tap and to my house to get the water. This is how we used to have water supply. On the particular day, first my mom went alone to the factory. She returned home and expected to get the water from the hose. It's was not coming and my mom thought there was some leaking in somewhere. She insisted that me and my sister go and investigate why we didn't get the water supply, even when she turned on the pipe tap.
We were lazy. We used our bicycles instead to go to the place (the place was always scary and behind my house is a Muslim cemetery). While we were riding, we saw a woman dressed in Indian costume standing near the big tree and there is a wide drain in between the factory and the tree. We are the only Indian living there and no way any human being can enter that place as it was a very bushy area.
She looked very beautiful and standing at the corner of the office (just beside the factory). We were stunned. We slammed out our bicycle and ran all the way to home. We told our mom what happened. She was speechless and she also had gone through similar experiences when she entered to the factory. She heard someone calling ma.. ma.. maaa... (mom) in a male voice.
This is very very true story. I swear upon God that I saw that a young woman standing there. I never believed in ghost, from this incident onward I started believed in ghost and the strange happenings.
My other encounter was when I saw an very old and unusual tall man walking about 500 meters in front of me. I was on the way back from the temple. The time was about 2:00am, we had special prayers on the day and the temple is just walking distance.
Another one happened in the house I'm living now. Also considered as haunted, I always heard some noises in the middle of night. My dog keeping barking unconditionally at night and and I saw white smoke around my kitchen.
Yesterday, I was in the bathroom taking a shower. Suddenly, my bathroom door was pulled by someone (it's nearly open). I was stunned. I grabbed my clothes and I screamed at my niece for pranking me. But she was in my living room playing with her little doll. No one at home. Only me and she.
Ghosts exist. We can feel their existence. But they are not so strong as OUR BELOVED GOD. Trust him. Be brave when you happens to encounter such incident. Again forgave me for my English. Have nice day!
