I posted an earlier story about Ghost Of Pulau Ubin. Today, I am going to tell you about a story that happened during the hungry ghost festival.
I and my two friends, Yeo Ying Jie and Marcus, were preparing to take a stroll along a path that leads to a temple. After we walk a few minutes, we found our self outside the temple. We decided to pray to the deities before we go back.
When we walk right into the temple, a breeze of wind blew across my face, and I knew that something was amiss. We took some joss stick and burn the tip of it. When we were praying, I notice that there is something dark moving near the hell deities alter. It was dark and has a human body, but with cow head. I also saw that it was holding a chain, with a naked person neck chained to it. I was freaked out, I told my friend to get out immediately, when they saw the expression on my face, they know that there is a spirit around. All of us quickly run back to the house.
The next day, we went back to the temple, we told the owner about that bull head human body and the person chain. The owner said that it was a hell guard (nui tou). He is the spirit who guard the hell gate (gui men guan) with his brother (ma mian). The owner also said that it comes to the mortal to arrest spirits that escape from hell. I was amazed. I think that I am the first lucky person to see such sight, but I do not want to see it again!
I hope that you will like my story! Please leave some comments, thank you!
