Hungry Ghosts Capture On Film

According to China Press, a group of friends had a shock of their life when they found that they “captured” images of a spirit in the photographs they took during a Hungry Ghost ritual recently.

The news report says that the images, which looked like a paper ghost, appeared in the photographs taken by the restaurant workers.

The group had conducted prayers at about 12.30am on the first day of the Hungry Ghost Month at a roadside in Malacca.

The group later decided to hold another prayer at the same site and were relieved that the spirit did not appear in any of the photographs that they took.

However, a photography expert said the image of the so-called spirit might be just a reflection from a glass window.

The Botak Chin Story

Botak Chin
(real name, Wong Swee Chin), probably Malaysia's most notorious gangster in the 1970s, was born in Kuala Lumpur in 1951 to a family of 12 people. His father worked with the Malayan Railways and they lived at the Malaysian Railway quarters next to the Caltex station in Jalan Ipoh. Read Botak Chin's biography here: Botak Chin Malaysia's Robin Hood. You won't find this information on Wikipedia. The short biography tells about his childhood, his initiation into the gangs, his raise to notoriety and his capture by the authorities.

Despite popular belief, the word "Botak" in his name does not refer to him being botak (bald or otherwise). It is actually an acronym for Bantu Orang Tak Ada Kerja, according to Abu Bakar Juah, a former director of Taiping Prison.

Abu Bakar also told the Star that Botak Chin could be friendly and used to play checkers with him in prison.

“He was a genius in his own way. He was small-sized but if he set his mind to do something, nobody could have stopped him, he was always one step ahead of you” Abu Bakar added.

Con Woman Scams "Husbands"

A 29-year-old woman is believed to have made millions from several “husbands” with her latest victim, a Palestinian losing nearly RM1mil.

“After I was cheated, I found out that I was actually her seventh husband.

“The previous six husbands were Malaysians and had also been cheated,” said the 32-year-old businessman Alaa A. M. Aldunna, who had married the Malaysian woman in November last year.

Harian Metro reported that the woman had introduced herself to Aldunna as “Datuk Nazatul” and claimed that she was of royal blood.

“I believe she used black magic because I began obeying her every word.

“Even our wedding took place in a rush,” he said, adding that the woman had made all the arrangements.

“We were married in a hotel room. She brought the marriage registrar and witnesses.”

Aldunna said Nazatul told him she was running a beauty parlour.

“However, I have never been there.

“Everytime I wanted to see the beauty parlour, she made excuses to stop me from going,” he said.

The truth was revealed when Nazatul disappeared after stealing two cheques and withdrawing RM1mil from his bank account.

After many attempts to contact her, Nazatul finally answered his call, saying she needed the money for her business and that she would not return it.

“That was the last time I heard from her,” he said, adding that Nazatul's brother had threatened to kill him if he tried to contact her again.

Aldunna made a police report against Nazatul at the Sentul police station last month.

He said he made the report to prevent more men from falling prey to Nazatul.
