Malaysia Urban Legend – Malaysian Ghosts from the Sabahan

Monday, January 10th, 2011

This post is contributed by C^Lene

Here’s a few things on what I understand of Malaysian Ghosts, from a Sabahan perspective.

  • Hantu Tetek – Anaru Susu (Literally, ‘Long Breasted’) in the Dusun language. Supposedly, she can be identified by her long, shrill whistling, which I guess ayone knows, is no animal if you hear it a night. My mom has actually had an experience when she was younger, where she heard it’s whistle while alone at home, and was taunted by having it whistle at one end of the house, then in a split second hearig it whistle again at the other end. Apparently, as it went on, she began to feel drained, and just as she was falling asleep on the couch (which was in the middle of the house, so she thought it would be fine), she was woken up by my grandmother who had just come home. When she described what happened, my grandmother said that it was a good thing she had woken her up because if she hadn’t, the ghost would have come in and killed her.

Malaysia Urban Legends – Myths and Beliefs

Friday, July 10th, 2009

While hearing ghost stories from friends, you tend to hear advises of what to do and what not to do right? Well, here are some funny ones that I’ve heard by far. Don’t ask me why or how these myths and beliefs came about because as mysteriously as it appears, its passed on from generations (or perhaps friends) to generations. “They” say….

  1. Do not stand at the corner of the lift / evelator.Apprently, that’s where the spirits like to lurk. (this one I can explain, perhaps from those ghost movies that you usually watch? Remember when the victim would just get into the lift and press the button then suddenly in the corner of his eyes, he would see some feet in one corner?)
  2. Do not lean yourself / face etc against the wall. It is said that spirits move about by crawling along the wall so… you won’t want to get in their way, would you? Continue reading Malaysia Urban Legends – Myths and Beliefs »

Malaysia Urban Legends – Genting Highland’s Guest

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

This is more of a horror story that’s circulate some 10 years ago about one of Genting Highland’s hotel. I’m not too sure which Genting Highland hotel is it as there wasn’t really one particular hotel mentioned in the many version of stories I’ve been told but some swear by its authencity. Afterall, this is one of the most told Malaysia Urban Legend I’ve heard for many times

It started out as a group of high school friends decided to make Genting Highland as one of their holidays destination. Genting Highland’s hotel, was afterall one of the most affordable-ly priced hotel with its location easily accessed (buses and cable car is one of the most widely used mode of transportation for students that do not own a car)

To make the holidays affordable for everyone, this group of high school friends decided to cram into a single bedroom which has 2 single beds. There were about 5-6 people sharing the room and with the cost of a RM300 or less a night, it was a reasonable price. Happily, the 5 friends joked and hanged out at the room. When noon came, they even visited the indoor and outdoor theme parks and had a great time enjoying themselves. As night approached, they were really tired and decided to call the day off.

Discussing how 5 people could sleep comfortably in 2 single beds, they decided to pull off both the mattresses so 2 single beds could turn to 4 instead (the remaining person would have to bunk in with another friend). As 2 of the friends pulled the upper mattress, they were shocked to find a dead body of a woman beneath the mattress. Horrified, they called the security and hotel management to explain the situation.
