SITUBONDO, Indonesia - an entity which claimed to be the ghost haunting an antique spear is now captured and sealed in a bottle by an Indonesian Paranormal according to the local news yesterday.

According to Agus who captured the ghost, perhaps it was the ghost who took cares of the antique spear which were kept in the yard by a local man. The alleged spear was buried in the earth when Agus manage to pull it out during cleansing and it's not yet confirm either the spear belongs to ancient royal kingdom or not.

Yesterday, local news and media shot some of the photo and manage to get this alleged claim to be the apparition of the entity. According to the witness, the apparition in the bottle seems to be in a form of a whitish half torso entity.

How far was the claim is not yet to be confirm by Paracrypt RSG since we don't have the item. However, Paracrypt RSG welcome any comments especially for those who living in Indonesia regarding the news and media reports of the case

Ghost sightings in Betong Police Station, Sarawak

Apparition of a white lady with a long hair claimed to be disturbing the police officers and staffs here in Betong District Police Headquarters, Sarawak.

The sightings and hauntings started few days after the relocation of the old District Police headquarters to their new building at Kuak Huat Wee Street in Betong, 150 kilometres from Kuching.

Since then continuous haunting and eerie feelings experienced by the police officers on duty, and some even claimed to saw the ghostly apparition of the white lady in the detaining cell block

The most bizarre haunting was a case where the spirit manifested itself as one of the duty officer, roaming around the complex and never answers upon calling and later vanished in the thin air.

According to one of the source, there's a case of night shift officers encountered an apparition of the lady in white dress with her hair touches the ground which later creates panic among few of the officers resulting one of investigating officer force himself to jumps out from the second storey building after seeing the ghost. Luckily there's no serious injuries caused by the bizarre encounters.

Loch Ness monster image or a giant squid?

Image captured by Jason from the Google Earth

Nottingham- A security guy, Jason Cooke 25 drom here claimed that he found an image of the legendary Loch Ness monster or known as Nessie while surfing the Google Earth Search engine, reported by the local papers.

The so called image can be seen at 57°12'52.13 N 4°34'14.16 W.

Based on the image, Paracrypt RSG members together with other freelance researchers, agrees that the so called image of Nessie from the Google Earth is actually an image of a giant squid which might lurks in the dark water of Loch Ness.

A squid like entity in the Loch Ness which once became a highlight in the local news

It is not impossible to find such accidental image or creature due to their natural habitat of living deep in the ocean or waters, and perhaps the various accounts of sightings might be related to this giant squid's tentacles which mostly mistaken as Nessie's long neck and head.

However, further opinion or facts is highly welcome from readers and researchers.

Another Image editng and hoax photo

According to the sender, the photo was taken in front of an empty and haunted house on his way back from work. His friend took the photo with his Lumix camera and after checking up the photo they saw the ghostly figure of a woman inside the house starring at them.

The photo was straightly confirmed as hoax by Paracrypt RSG based on the image. The so called 'ghostly image' was a longtime chain photo of a ghost lady which has been used by internet users to create hoax image. Here was the same ghost image which also confirmed as hoax by experts.

Kemayan City mystery

Kemayan City Mall is a well-known abandoned building for its mysterious ghostly accounts especially to local residents in the area of Tampoi, Skudai and Johor Bahru. The abandoned building was actually a consisting of residential and commercial spaces (Cineplex, supermarket, shopping mall etc). In late 90s due to the Asian Economic Crisis the construction project was stopped and though the exterior of the complex was complete, the interior was hardly usable.

Various accounts of ghostly sightings and mysterious cases occurred since. Most famously told till now was stories experienced by tourist from neighboring country Singapore regarding the complex. It was about a family who was on their way back to Woodland Singapore after attending their relative's wedding ceremony in Malacca. Their true life experience was told to the Unit Falaq Syarie Johore. According to the witnesses, while they were on their way to Singapore, they saw the complex which supposedly abandoned earlier was decorated in a glamorous and colourful lights with a lot of peoples came and entering the complex, and it seems something grand was ongoing. Then they stopped by thinking that the complex was finally open for business and since it was still early they planned to have a look inside. What they found was, a grand opening ceremony of the complex was in place with a lot of entertainment and sales. After spending for about half an hour sightseeing in the complex, the family continue their journey to Singapore but stopped by at their relative's house in Kampung Pasir not far from the area for a short visit.

The family then told their relatives bout the grand opening and also show them goods which they have bought at the mall. However, they were surprised to see that all goods like T Shirts and other things turn to dry leaves and also missing. Most shocking part was they were told by their relatives that the mall was never been open for business till now and it the buildings has been left emptied for many years.

How far the claim was true, till now the abandoned building of Kemayan City Mall was still a mystery and various haunting experienced told by not only from Singapore but also the locals from other cities who have been 'tricked' by the mysterious events.

Haunted Banglo in Batu Pahat, Johor

Based on the story emailed to Paracrypt RSG, the banglo situated at Air Hitam-Parit Sulong-Batu Pahat-Johor Baharu old road have been abandoned for many years and nobody dares to demolish or even live in it. According to some local accounts, the banglo was once used by Japanese Administration office during WW2. However, many ghostly sightings and mysterious incidents happened such as apparition of ghostly entities, mysterious mourning voices etc. Some say it was the spirits of the beheaded prisoners whom their body was thrown into the lake nearby, and others says it came from the soul of dead girl who was raped by the Japanese soldier inside the banglo long time ago. Whatever the story was, the banglo still giving a eerie goosebumps for every passing road user especially during a late night drive.

More confirmation on the sites needed from readers around Johor regarding the haunting.

WW2 Japanese soldier apparition

I have been following PRSG official blog for quite some years now and I'm so anxious everytime I open the blog to read any new findings and new articles. Keep on the good work guys and may all your efforts be blessed.

I would like to share some of my personal experience of encountering paranormal entities especially what most people called 'GHOST'. It was happened when I was visiting a famous fort in Manila, Philippine years ago. I was exploring few of the dungeon and I took several photo to show to my friends back home. I didn't realized there was something eerie inside my photos until one of my friend show it again to me. it was the figure of a man. On closer inspection the man became a soldier dressed in full period uniform of the Japanese Army! He stands holding his rifle in front, with the butt at his feet. Has this soldier been captured in an ethereal moment in time, whilst standing guard over his prisoners? And in addition there was also a bright , strange and random specks of light which clearly seen in the photo? Were they merely the reflection of the flash in the camera - or were they a strange atmospheric phenomenon or something else?

In this close up, his hat, nose, mouth and ears can be clearly discerned. It is a ghostly and inexplicable apparition. It's really gave me a creeps and I would like the readers and other researchers to give comments bout the eerie phenomenon


Philippines Haunting

Signboard of the Balete Drive

The eerie look in one of Balete Drive area

Balete Drive ghost stories have been around allegedly since the 1950s. The most popular is a “white lady” that haunts the long avenue and seems to target cab drivers in particular—but not exclusively. The hair-raising accounts went through the years, many claiming to have personally seen this mysterious lady. Paranormal experts believe that the white lady was raped by Japanese soldiers during the Second World War, and other version was in one late night a cab driver violated a pretty girl on her way home. Since then, the ghost stories started and circulated in the metropolis. Witnesses of the white lady, advise motorists to avoid the street at night, especially if they are alone. If it is necessary to travel the route, they advise that the backseat of the car is fully occupied and that no one should look back or look in any mirrors.

The apparition wears a night gown, has long hair but has no face or one covered with blood. This has somewhat become part of Philippine folklore unofficially. Other ghost tales of Balete Drive include spirit kingdoms, spirit creatures, and haunted houses.

Another view of Balete Drive

Balete Drive connects the long span between E.Rodriguez and N. Domingo Avenues in New Manila, Quezon City. It’s about 45 minutes travel from Manila via the Cubao route through Espana and E. Rodriguez Avenue. The Balete Drive corner at E. Rodriguez is a bustling business area mushroomed with fast foods and other establishments.

Hantu atau slow shutter?

ATAS: NOR Kharunisa menunjukkan imej lelaki tidak berkaki (bulatan) di belakangnya yang muncul apabila gambar itu dirakam di sebuah restoran di Johor Bahru baru-baru ini. KIRI IMEJ lembaga bertudung dengan muka yang kabur (bulatan) ini didakwa tidak kelihatan sewaktu gambar ini dirakamkan di Air Hitam, Muar baru-baru ini. JOHOR BAHRU -

Belum reda kisah lembaga 'wanita kebaya merah' di Lebuh Raya Utara-Selatan, kini timbul pula kisah dua orang di sini yang terkejut melihat gambar mereka rupa-rupanya ada imej lain yang tidak disangka-sangka.

"Pada mulanya saya ingatkan itu adik angkat saya, tetapi dia ketika itu duduk di hadapan saya,'' ceritanya ketika ditemui Kosmo! di sini semalam.

Lagenda Datu Merpati

Lagenda Datu Merpati dan Datu Merpati Jepang di Sarawak merupakan sebuah lagenda dan sejarah yang berkaitan dengan asal usul perabangan serta keturunan Raden di Sarawak. Namun terdapat beberapa kekeliruan serta percanggahan fakta dari segi kesahihan serta salasilah yang juga berhubungkait dengan salasilah Kesultanan Sambas dan Brunei dimana menurut lagenda ini terdapat hubungan tali kekeluargaan diantara ketiga-tiga negeri ini. Sejauh mana ianya benar terpulang kepada mereka yang mengetahui.

Berbagai kajian telah dijalankan oleh individu, badan serta pengkaji sejarah yang berminat akan kisah yang dianggap satu khazanah bagi Sarawak. Akan tetapi terdapat berbagai versi, mitos dan juga kekaburan dari segi fakta mahupun penceritaan. sungguhpun terdapat banyak kawasan yang dikaitkan dengan kehadiran Datu Merpati ke Borneo, kajian terhadap lagenda ini bukan bertujuan untuk mempertikai atau membuat persepsi negatif keatas aliran keturunan pihak tertentu, tetapi ingin merungkai apa sebenarnya berlaku dan siapa sebenarnya tokoh ini. Adakah beliau hanya sebuah mitos hikayat lama seperti tokoh lain umpamanya Hang Tuah, Bendahara Tepok, Puteri Gunung Ledang dan sebagainya? atau beliau benar-benar wujud tetapi riwayat kisah beliau telah diubah atau ditokok tambah agar penceritaannya lebih menarik, ataupun ianya adalah satu dari adaptasi hikayat lain dan kemudian dimasukkan kedalam penulisan kisah beliau?

Walau apapun teorinya, nama Datu Merpati@Raden Merpati merupakan sebuah nama yang begitu sinonim dengan peradaban Melayu Sarawak khasnya. Sambas dan Brunei yang juga dikaitkan tentang asal penubuhan kerajaannya juga diceritakan didalam lagenda ini.

Paracrypt Research and Study Group juga tidak melepaskan peluang untuk membuat kajian tokoh yang bersejarah ini dan cuba merungkai misteri disebalik lagenda ini berdasarkan beberapa rujukan dan fakta sejarah peradaban dan kesusasteraan nusantara. Namun hasil kajian ini tidak bermakna 100% ianya harus diterima, tetapi mungkin boleh membantu kajian lanjut dan menjadi batu loncatan kepada kajian atau expedisi yang lain malah pendapat mahupun input dalam berbagai bentuk juga amat dialu-alukan dalam menjejak dan merungkai siapakah sebenarnya DATU MERPATI@RADEN MERPATI

Malaysian Ghost and beliefs

There are many kinds of beliefs in this world about the types of ghosts. One of the more popular types of ghosts in our local culture are the Malay ghosts. Of course, there are also the Chinese ghosts, English ghosts and even Indian ghosts depending on your religion, race and beliefs. For example, a vampire is an English ghost version whereas Malays simply knows them as “pontianak” and Chinese as “Kiong Xi”.

Malays believe that ghosts are usually only active at night especially during the full moon where it is belief to be the most powerful time for the underworld. Of course, be it fact or just simply another Malaysian Urban Legend, we’ll never know. Below are a lists of the types of Malay Ghosts:

also known as the vampire where it is belief that they are usually ladies dressed in white seeking for revenge. The pontianak is said to be the spirit of a woman died of childbirth. Most of the time, they can look very beautiful but if you look closely, she would have razor sharp teeth. They usually comes out after the sun sets searching for men or pregnant women (apparently, it is said that she could not bear the thought of other women being able to enjoy motherhood) to suck blood. Sometimes, they even eat the flesh of babies ripped out from their mother’s womb.

These are actually ghostly kids that people adopt for the objective of stealing other people’s money. It is believed that this spirit is kept and preserved in a jar in a form of a foetus. Because the toyol is kept by people to do bidding, you have to feed it with blood everyday.

Hantu Bukit Ghosts that haunt the hilly areas.

Hantu Jepun Translates as Japanese ghost. Believed to appear wearing WW2 army attire carrying samurai swords. Usually found marching or if you are lucky, you can only hear the footsteps of marching. They are mostly headless
