Ghost Bus

hopefully next time the driver don't ever play the horror movie

That day I took bus go back to my hometown. Usually I sleep well when I take the bus, but that day I can’t, know why? It’s because the bus is a ghost bus. The scream always heard in the bus, it so terrible and noisy for me, it disturbs my sleeping.

The ghost is not the real ghost, but just the ghost movie. Perhaps the driver think we will be bored, so he open the Malay ghost movie for us. Perhaps he think we can’t feel the horror of the movie so he open the volume to maximum.

And I’m forced to watch the movie because I can’t sleep well. The movie name was “The Real Pocong”.

It’s the first time for me watching the Malay’s ghost stories. Pochong is one type of the Malay ghost, I only know Pontianak before that.

Pocong is one type of ghost that almost same with the Chinese vampire. Both of them hop to get the human. Beside of that, the clothes that Pocong wear almost same with the Egypt Mummy. The different is the fabric and tie are covered all over the Mummy but for the Pocong, it din’t covered it’s face.

When I back to home, I go to Google searching the materials of the Pocong. My knowledge about Malay are lack, I don’t know their wearing is in the type same like Pocong when they dead.


Google material : A pocong is an Indonesian or Malaysian ghost that is said to be the soul of a dead person trapped in their suit. The pocong suit (shroud) is used by Muslims to cover the body of the dead person. They cover the dead body with white fabric and tie the clothing over the head, under the feet, and on the neck. According to the native beliefs, the soul of a dead person will stay on the earth for 40 days after the death. When the ties aren't released after 40 days, the body is said to jump out from the grave to warn people that the soul need the bonds to be released. After the ties are released, the soul will leave the earth and never show up anymore. Because of the tie under the feet, the ghost can't walk. This causes the pocong to hop.
