It was reported by a local daily recently that boatmen ferrying visitors to 2 famous island resorts in Peninsular Malaysia had sexually taken advantage of women tourists after offering them drinks spiked with drugs.
The boatmen would allegedly first befriend solo women travellers and will offer spiked drinks to these women before taking advantage of them.
It is also possible, says the news report, that the boatmen could have been using black magic in the form of minyak dagu, or corpse oil on the woman. Some believe that applying Minyak dagu on women makes them lose inhibitions and enter into a trance-like state open to seductive suggestions.
Minyak dagu is normally obtained from a Bomoh (local Shaman). The oil is believed to be extracted from the chin of a dead person. To do this, the Shaman will exhume a fresh grave, heat the fat at the chin of the corpse to collect its oil in a small bottle. He would then perform magical rituals to empower the oil which can be used for many different supernatural ends.
