Hantu Kom-Kom

the house which i grew up as a kid


xplorer : second from left

When i was a small kid growing up in a kampung , the last ten days of ramadhan was the best time of our lives . Not because we were busy with our prayer due to lailatul qadar, but we were busy dressing up as hantu kom-kom. Arm with a small torch light , we would normally parade in small groups either by foot or by bicycle around our kampung . The reason why we have the guts to do it during that period was simply because as a kid i was being told by my grandfather (who is actually the kampung tok imam) that during ramadhan all the ghost and the devil will be chained.Futhermore most of the kampung houses wil be lighted up by pelita around their houses.

Now the kampung which i grew up is no more all in the name of developement . Pity my children as they will never experience the joy of living in a kampung.

Selamat hari raya maaf zahir batin to all and don't eat your lemang while driving , it could be fatal.:-)
