mystery of sabah

Wanna see a ghost?

First of all, this is only a tip. I`m not asking you to try it and it won`t be my responsibility if you do it. I`m here just telling you a story.

Okay, let’s start. Of course there are many ways to see a ghost based on different culture. However in sabah especially for bajau there is an easier way to a see ghost by which you only need to walk by holding your pillow like you carrying a baby at the place that you suitable enough for you to see a ghost. Of course, it must be at the midnight.

One of my friend have tried it when we still in the school. He carried his pillow around the hostel. Then, when he came back to us, he looked so panics and told us that when he arrived at the corner of the hostel, suddenly his pillow getting heavy and he can see someone face on that pillow.

Anyway, he did it because we challenge him. ……
okay.......
