Sisuahlai's take on The Star: Toyol drawing them in

With the recent surge in coverage and interest in paranormal activity in Malaysia, another mythical creature is making a comeback. Enter the super-kiasu Toyol.

Often desribed as mischievous pint-sized goblins (yes, even more midgeter than the the Middle-Earth goblins), they are released by its conjuror to steal and cause social havoc. This creature is often sighted in kampungs.

In big cities, they are treated as aborted foetus and are normally handed over to a midwife or a gynaecologist, hence the relative rare sightings of Toyol in big cosmopolitan city such as Kuching.

A bottle of onion-pickled Toyol was found by a fisherman in the semi-cosmopolitan city of Pekan. Instead of handing it to a medical personnel for further examination, the creature was given to a museum.

Like that how to find out its true species? The Legend therefore continues... sigh.





Sisuahlai.
