On a busy street in Singapore, residents discovered a small doll leaning against a tree. The doll looked somewhat antique and had its eyes covered with a cloth.

The cloth had some arabic text written on it meaning “bismillah”, [apparently intended] to trap whatever jinn or curse is inside from coming out or following the owner back home.

Stories from twitter revealed that the doll is possessed and has been moving around on its own when the original owner isn’t home. She binded [sic] the eyes and left it far away from home so it wouldn’t follow her back.

“Some say the doll can be heard talking when it’s left alone in a room and is found with its head turned in a different direction. It is said that it spoke in a Malay language and sound like an adult female.

The curse is rumored to have passed on to someone else who found it and untied the cloth unknowingly. The doll has been missing since.

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
