bibik. & exorcism (?)

I'M NOT SURE MYSELF IF EXORCISM IS THE CORRECT TERM TO USE HERE. I THINK NOT. I WAS MEANING TO SAY DIBUAT-BUAT ORANG. GET WHAT IT MEANS?

I WENT TO MY AMMAH'S (GRANNY IN HOKKIEN) HOUSE THIS EVENING. MY AUNTY ENG (MUM'S ELDER SISTER) WAS THERE TOO. THEY WERE TALKING IN HOKKIEN MOST OF THE TIME SO I WASN'T PAYING MUCH OF ATTENTION. UNTIL MY AUNT STARTED TO CERITA ABOUT HER PREVIOUS MAID.

IT HAPPENED 3, 4 YEARS BACK. THE MAID WAS ORANG TIMUR. FROM INDON. SHE HAD BEEN A FINE MAID UNTIL 1 DAY...
THERE WAS A SNAKE AT THEIR HOUSE YARD. THE MAID WAS COOKING IN THE KITCHEN. MY AUNT CALLED FOR THE MAID, WHILE UNCLE BIT & SOME OTHERS TRIED TO CATCH/KILL THE SNAKE. THE MAID WENT OUT TO LOOK, SAW THE SNAKE ALREADY DEAD, & WENT BACK INSIDE, SAMBUNG MASAK - SAMBIL MEMBEBEL SORANG2 & EMO. MY AUNT ASKED WHY U DIDNT GO & HELP? "KNAPA MAU KASI MATI ITU ULAR? DIA BAIK2 SAJA, DIAM2 LAH. KNAPA KAMU BUNUH? ITU NENEK SAYA!" EXCLAIMED THE MAID. SHE CLAIMED THAT IT WAS HER GRANNY FROM INDON, COMING TO VISIT HER & PASS A MSG. AUNT WAS STARTLED. (I WAS LAUGHING)

THE FOLLOWING DAY, MY COUSIN KAKAK RUTH KNOCKED HARD ON HER MUM'S (MY AUNTY ENG) BEDROOM, & TOLD HER TO GO LOOK AT THE MAID DOWNSTAIRS. THEIR HOUSE HAD A KOLONG, WHERE THEY PARK THE CAR. & THERE. THEY SAW HER, MENCANGKUNG ON THE FLOOR, JUST STARING & LIKE SHIVERING, NEAR TO THE WASHING MACHINE. "KENAPA KAU NI?" MY AUNT ASKED. SHE TALKED IN A VERY PECULIAR WAY, & HER HANDS WAS LIKE SNAKE-STYLED - MCM DLM CERITA 'MATAHARI' TV3, HEROIN TU WAT TARIAN TGN APA TAH. ALWAYS MOVING IN A SLIMY WAY AS SHE TALKS. SHE ASKED FOR UNCLE BIT. SHE THANKED HIM FOR BEING NICE & KIND & BLA3.. & THEN ASKED FOR KAKAK RUTH'S HUSBAND PULAK LAGI. SHE THANKED HIM, PLUS "SAYA MINTA MAAF, SAYA PERNAH CURI DARI BOS" - "APA KAU CURI?" - "PEN BOS. SAYA PAKAI UNTUK TULIS 4D" - "OHH NDA PA LA, ITU BUKAN CURI. SAYA MAAFKAN JA". SHE THANKED EVERYONE IN THE HOUSE, & SHE SAID SHES GOING OFF TODAY. SOMEBODY'S COMING TO TAKE HER...

BUT NOBODY CAME FOR HER.

SO MY AUNT BROUGHT HER BACK TO HER PEOPLE. THEY TOOK CARE OF HER. IT WAS HEARD BY HER ORANG KAMPUNG THAT SHE WAS KENA TIPU BY SOME GUY. AN OLDER GUY, PROBLY CONFESSED LOVE TO HER, & CHEATED HER TO GIVE HIM MONEY BEFORE FLEEING AWAY. PROBLY THAT MADE HER DEPRESSED. SHE WANTED TO COME BACK TO WORK, BUT THE ORANG KAMPUNG SAID DONT LET HER, CUZ SHE'S NOT VERY SANE YET. SO MY AUNT LIED TO HAVE ALREADY A NEW MAID. & SO THE MAID GAVE HER LAST FAREWELL VIA SMS TO KAKAK RUTH'S DAUGHTER, TIERNEY, WHOS CLOSEST TO THE MAID. SHE THANKED EVERYONE IN THE FAMILY, & LAST BUT NOT LEAST, "KALAU TIERNEY MAU TELUR, MINTA JA SAMA TU KAKAK AH..". TIERNEY LOVED EGGS. SHE'S SCREAM "KAKAK~ TELUL~" EVERYTIME SHE COMES BACK FROM SCHOOL. THE LAST MY AUNTY HEARD OF HER IS THAT SHE'S GONE CRAZY. PITY HER..

OKAY. SO PROBABLY THAT WASN'T DIBUAT-BUAT ORANG. HERE' THE STORY OF MY FAMILY'S CURRENT MAID.

SHE'S VERY YOUNG. ONLY 24 I THINK. ORG BUGIS. HAS FAMILY TIES WITH OUR PREVIOUS MAID, THE ONE I ALWAYS REFER TO PEOPLE AS KAKAK - SHE TOOK CARED OF ME SINCE I WAS BORN. UNTIL I WAS 19. THIS KAKAK RASMI CAME TO OUR HOUSE EVER SINCE KAKAK LEFT.

THE FIRST YEAR HAD BEEN FINE. THO SHE HANGS ON THE PHONE ALOT THAT IT ANNOYS MY MUM. LATER, SHE WAS TELLING ME THAT SHE FEELS UNEASY. SHE CANT SLEEP AT NIGHT. THE WATER'S LIKE BURNING HER AT TIMES. SHE CANT SEE MIRRORS. & SHE KEPT REMEMBERING THIS 1 GUY.

SHE TOLD ME, THERE WAS THIS 1 GUY SHE MET ON HER BUS RIDE BACK TO OUR HOUSE. THEY CHATTED ABIT, KAKAK KINDA MALAS LAYAN LA JUGAK. THE GUY LATER KEPT BOTHERING HER, SMSING & CALLING AT TIMES (KAKAK'S FRIEND GAVE HER PHONE NO). KAKAK IGNORED HIM. THE GUY WAS UNTIL ASKING FOR HAND IN MARRIAGE! FREAK! SO PROBLY THE GUY GOT ANGRY FOR BEING REJECTED, & .. I DONT KNOW. PUT A SPELL ON HER? LIKE UBAT PENGASIH KOT. KAKAK TELLS ME SHE KEEPS REMEMBERING THAT GUY. SHE ASKED FOR THE QURAN & OTHER RELIGIOUS BOOKS TO READ. SHE PRAYED ALOT, JUST TO KEEP HER SANE. BUT THE GANGGUAN DIDNT WEAR OFF. SO SHE SAID SHE WANTS TO GO BACK INDON TO BERUBAT.

THAT TIME, SHE PERSONALLY ASKED ME, "LISA PERCAYA KA SEMUA NI?" I DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY. "KAKAK PUN DULU TIDAK PERCAYA BENDA2 MACAM NI. TAPI MEMANG NENEK KAKAK PUN PERNAH KENA BUAT2 ORANG." SHE WAS EATEN BY BALAN-BALAN. KAKAK SAW THE CORPSE ITSELF, BACK IN INDON. GULP. & HER UNCLE, DIED BCOS THE TUJU-TUJU (THE FIERY BALL FLYING TOWARDS THE AIMED PERSON, WITH SPELLS TO CAUSE BAD THINGS TO THE PERSON INTENDED) HITTED HIM INSTEAD OF THE MEANT PERSON. GOSH.. NAUZUBILLAH MIN ZALIK..

LAST TIME I SAW HER WAS IN MARCH. SHES AWAY AGAIN NOW. JUST A FEW DAYS BEFORE I RETURNED HOME RECENTLY. SHE CLAIMS KENA BUAT2 ORANG AGAIN. THIS TIME IS BY A CHRISTIAN. SO IT WAS KINDA UNSUAL & THE BOMOH CANT EASILY REPEL THE DOINGS BY A DIFFERENT RELIGION. MY PARENTS SAID SHE WAS RESTLESS A FEW DAYS BEFORE, NOT SLEEPING ETC. WE OFTEN RECEIVE CALLS PEOPLE LOOKING FOR HER. HER FRIENDS SAID THEY CANT REACH HER PHONE, SO THEY CALLED OUR HOUSE NUMBER. MY DAD TOLD ME GOT THIS 1 DAY, A GUY CALLED. MY DAD SUSPECTS PEOPLE ALOT. HE THINKS THE PERSON MIGHT CALL TO ASK TO KNOW IF HIS 'BUATAN' MENJADI OR NOT.

GUY : ELO? RASMI ADA?
DAD : DIA CUTI. SIAPA NI?
GUY : KAWAN DIA
DAD : KAWAN DIA NAMA SIAPA?
GUY : HANTU
DAD : BAH TERIMA KASIH LA YA HANTU
& THE GUY HUNG THE PHONE... (I CANT SLEEP FOR NIGHTS! THINKING OF THIS)

THE MAKCIK IN HER KAMPUNG NOW REPORTS TO US OCCASIONALLY, SAYING THAT SHE NOW MERACAU AT NIGHT.


AND.. I'M THE "KAKAK' FOR THE TIME BEING AT HOME.

OH BTW. WE HAD MEE KARI FOR DINNER TODAY :D~
