Post Office Worker Who Spotted A Poslaju Package Moving On Its Own Makes A Shocking Discovery Inside
In a recent Facebook posting, Mohd Zaidi Bin Desa recounted how the employee feared that a live animal had been stuffed inside resulting in the package moving on its own, but what he found was something far worst – artefacts used in local witchcraft worship.
Referred to locally as a ‘Jenglot’, the mummified figurine was found inside a carved wooden box lined with red cloth.
Zaidi shared the shocking discovery on Facebook on 4 April 2017 and has since garnered over 800 thousand shares, with netizens reacting with humour mixed with a hint of fear:
“Did you order this from Lazada? Are toyol (hob goblin) available for purchase?,” Muhammad Fauzie asked.
“What human being would use Pos Laju to carry out their superstitious beliefs,” Hajar Rashid said.
“There’s no denying that there are people who ‘own’ them. May God strengthen our faith in him,” Rafie Rozaidi commented.
According to a blogsite dedicated to supernatural happenings, Jenglots are believed to be a small, long-haired, fanged, living doll with the soul of a previously living person – feeding on its owner’s blood or goat’s blood – that originated from Indonesia.
The dolls are typically spotted in abandoned houses or buried in the earth, but remain silent and idle in hopes of identifying its new ‘master.’
On top of that, lelong.com revealed that these Jenglots are being ‘auctioned off’ at prices between RM800 to RM25,000.
The purpose of such dolls remain unknown but regardless, let’s be extra careful when we open up our next courier package.
