I went to 2 places only when Chinese New Year. Due to the hot weather and made me feeling like lazy to go out. The first place i went is called Kundang Ulu. Which is 30mins away from Bukit Gambir. Actually there are lot of places for netting along the way to Kundang Ulu. Coz bringing parents n sister. So, not really hv chance to stop the car.

The fresh water river which lead to Muar river. i had lot of memory in this river. First time jump into river n learn how to swim. First caught the prawn. First caught the big fish. First saw the giant tortise. First time saw the crocodile and first time saw the hantu minyak near the river.

Due to the river flow getting stronger. They stop ppl fishing n swimming. The opposite site is Gersek or Estate which the local ppl named. The local ppl just use the small boat to communicate. A person was charge RM0.20. And a motorcycle was charge RM0.50 per trip.

This is the 1st lake we reached. Look like kinda deep and scary. But the depth is around 3ft. Saw lot of fishes swimming around. 3ft toman was just swimming next to me. Mostly are water lily, blyxa aubertii and other common aquatic plants.

After a day back from Kundang Ulu...butt itchy again. So went to Pagoh and Bukit Pasir. Due to i went alone. I just spent a little bit of time inside some of the plantation and small jungle.
Didn't really get the fish back. I let go all of them. coz got no space to keep.

Here is the small "longkang" along the road before bukit pasir. Hair grass growing n almost fully covered the longkang.

This trip i didn't try to get any prawn. It is the big and long blue cray fresh water prawn.

Hantu minyak (in Malay language). The bomoh (the person into black magic) using the kid or baby which just died not more than 7 days to be their slave. So this "slave" body full with oily stuff. So that none of us able to catch "it". And they using it to steal money or do whatever they wanted to.

So, for the GOD safe. All the residents there will put 50 cen inside a bowl which full with water infront of their houses every month. Then they bomoh will send their slave to collect the money. And you will able to see the water inside full with oily stuff.

I wasn't believe with it and wanted to find out how is it look like. (when i was around 12 years old.) So, hiding behind the door in the middle of the night. Just wanted to find out this hantu minyak. Waiting for days... finally saw it. What i saw is just a small kid like 4-6 years old. Whole body is in black n oily. Can't really see the face clear also. They just like appeared n disappeared infront of you within few seconds.

haha, for a while thought it is a new species, all I know hantu is ghost in Malay. That's really cool, did u wait for it to appear the whole night? Other of your friends can see him as well? How often the residents have to put coins in their bowl?

I was waiting for it for few night. They came n gone as their own business. No one able to stop it except their master. Yes. I was there with my sister. Both of us saw it...my sis was cried like crazy... :D

I dont know how often. But i saw they put like once a while. May be once a month...

:joking: :joking: if i am their master. I will make sure you all place yr S grade CRS in front of yr front door. Otherwise, whole tank of yr CRS will disappear. :D

Next time, remember to bring video cam and camera, it will be great to capture it on film. :)

It is very kind of you not to request for my SS and Hinomaru from me. :joking:
Recently, someone cursed my CRS and I have 1 death, I better put talisman on my tank soon. :joking:

There is no view cam available 20 years ago...if not, i will record it. But then that place still full of mistery. Heard my cousin said the bomoh who is good into black magic still there...(After I watch the Long Khong, I dare not to disturb or do anything to do this of ppl.)

Long Khong is the Thai movie about the Thai black magic.

i remember i saw some shrimp in a drain at muar,, near Tanjung. 2 years ago.
look like with some black stripe on it, not sure ppl throw it in or else.

but there are some kids trying to catch some "longkang fish" there.

I am not from muar, so i cant really explain well where is the place.
