There’s only one thing missing from this article, and it’s pretty important.

Ghosts don’t exist.

Dead is dead.

Period.

How very disappointing that this was not mentioned.

It makes no difference if ghosts are real or not. It’s fun to make believe they are real. Like going to the movies.

Anyway, there are plenty of hantu here in the Malaysian state of Sabah (North Borneo) where I live. Look at the side mirror frame in the attached photo (I hope it uploads ok.). Do you see the apparition? The photo was taken near one of the cocoa plots at the Sabah Department of Agriculture station in the town of Tuaran. The person in the photo said there was no one in front of him. But he was facing a nearby abandoned Muslim cemetery.
