MYSTERIES OF HAUNTED NORTHERN BEACHES
OF "PEARL OF THE ORIENT"

Dr. Ong Hean-Tatt 13th April 2002



Modern science is beginning to find that ghosts and UFOs are manifestations of energies and radiation from bad Feng Shui spots. There are scientific explanations for haunting and ghosts!

INTRODUCTION

In Malaysia, there is the historical tropical island of Penang, dubbed the "Pearl of the Orient", which has some of the loveliest beaches in the world, sheltered along the northern coast of the island. These almost pure white sandy beaches, with their international standard beach hotels and the exotic tropical food cusine, are a favourite tourist destination in the region.

Old timers would fondly remember their young courting days where they waltzed with their future spouses to classical music at the then smaller but quaint beach hotels and club halls. Some of them could entertain you to the stories of the mysteries of these beaches, including a number of locations which are haunted.

The author re-visited some of these "haunted beaches" to explore more closely the environment of the beaches. There are possible startling scientific reasons why these beaches are "haunted".


TELUK BAHANG BEACH

The long wide white sandy beach of Teluk Bahang lies on the western part of the northern coast of Penang Island. The Teluk Bahang beach is one of the longest beaches in Penang Island. The shallow sea off this beach has a gradual gentle gradient free from dangerous undercurrents which makes for delightful swimming.

The beach is sandy with coconut trees and tall Causarina trees growing on it. The fishing village of Teluk Bahang is located at the western end of the beach and a short river flows through the village.

The east end of the Teluk Bahang beach used to be the Penang scouts' Jamboree camp site (somehow sold by the State government to the private sector, and, as at 2002, owed by Singaporeans). Scouts who used to camp on this beautiful beach occasionally come across an experience. The scout camp site used to extend to the south, across the main trunk, up the gentle slope of a hilly range. There used to be the toilet complex on this hill slope side. Sometimes, at night, when the scouts went to use the toilets, some of the scouts would encountered a ghost which seemed to hang around the toilets.

MIAMI BEACH, BATU FERRINGHI, PENANG ISLAND The Miami Beach has the "Lady of the Lamp" ghost.

THE "LADY OF THE LAMP" AT MIAMI BEACH, BATU FERRINGHI

East of the Teluk Bahang beach is the Batu Ferringhi stretch. The Miami beach at Batu Ferringhi is also a white sandy beach, which is narrower and shorter than the Teluk Bahang beach. It also has a relatively shallow sea which makes it another favourite beach for swimmers.

At some lonely nights, the occasional beach wanderer may see a light floating along this beach. It is the lantern carried by a beautiful female ghost. This ghost is dubbed "Florence Nightingale", that famous lady nurse who used to visit her patients at night to attend to their needs. It is supposed to be a gentle ghost doing no one any harm, except perhaps for a scare.


THE SAVOY GHOST

Also along the Batu Ferringhi stretch there is a cape where the coastline road has a turn and which is a well known haunted spot, the Savoy spot. The dilapidated beach building currently there on the beach side of the road is the now abandoned Savoy Hotel and Restaurant. The spot had previous old buildings which in turns were torn down to build the newer ones. But the haunting has persisted since the early 1900s to now.

A friend had stayed in this hotel a few years ago. He was reading a book and closed the book. He went out for a walk and returned. The book was reopened to the page at which he had closed the book! Time seemed to have backtracked!

My father had an experence in another bungalow also at a rock promontory near this spot. He had escorted a group of boys to holiday in the building at this spot. But, at night, the boys complained that someone was disturbing them by touching them, and lifting their blankets. There was no one to be seen and they were sacred that it was the famous ghost. My father got the boys to stay and sleep together in the main hall and went to investigate. When he approached a well on the beach side he saw a white hazy figure floating at the well. Just a white figure and features like face, eyes, limbs were not discernible.

MILLIONAIRE VILLA, BATU FERRINGHI, PENANG ISLAND, MALAYSIA. The deserted villa, where the son of the millionaire was said to commit suicide. Did ghosts cause the tragedy?.

THE MILLIONAIRE VILLA SPOT

One well known late Malaysian millionaire and philanthropist bought over a spot at Batu Ferringhi and built a luxurious villa there. His son and the son's family stayed in the villa.

But the son had a very unhappy relationship with his wife. After a turbulent period, the son was said to commit suicide by hanging himself in one of the rooms in the villa. The tragedy might have occurred due to haunting of the villa.


THE STARTLING EXPLANATION FOR THE "HAUNTINGS"

When the author visited these haunted beach sites, he was struck by the observation of one common environmental physical feature to all these spots. These beaches all have rock promontories jutting out into the sea. The common presence of the rock promontories was also commented upon by a friend Gary Tan who accompanied the author to help take photographs.

The Savoy Hotel and Restaurant building was built right on top of the rocky complex. The ill-fated millionaire villa is also built on a similar rocky complex.

The short Miami beach has a rock promontory at its eastern end. The haunted spot at the Teluk Bahang beach is also near the promontory end of the beach at the east.

A casual comment trying to account for the haunting is that people drowned in the sea off this coast due to accidents or suicides. Some of the bodies were never found but were believed to have been caught by the rocks below the sea. That is, this northern coastal stretch of Penang Island has many rock promontories jutting out into the sea. Some of these rocks could have trapped bodies down there. Hence, the haunting by ghosts of the dead!

However, the author is in favour of a more scientific explanation. There are at least two scientific factors which could cause the haunting.

  • The first is that the edges of the rock promontory coming into touch with softer soil materials as well as the sea waters are areas of weak ionisation. Such ionisation would have accumulated electromagnetic effects leading to ghost touches and lifting of materials like blankets and even flickering of lights. If intense enough, the ions could appear as a luminous object, the "ghost".

  • A second factor is that the rocks would also overlie sea currents beneath them. These sea currents would generate weak electromagnetic fields having the same effects as the ionisation of the first factor. Both may interact to cause the haunting.

The discussion thus indicates that the sea shoreline can be subjected to establishment of weak electromagnetic fields through huge rock promontories and underlying sea currents. The weak electromagnetism and the attendant ionisation could account for the haunting effects reported for these haunted areas.

Such areas of electromagnetic disturbances and ionisation may not be suitable for human habitation. Although weak, the electromagnetic energies could be detected by sensitive human organs. This could cause mental disturbances and ill-health.

  • In Feng Shui, locations on promontories jutting out into the sea are bad Feng Shui spots.

Other strange mysterious spots along the northern coastline of Penang Island include the Lovers' Island at Batu Feringghi, the Tanjong Tokong temple, the Pulau Tikus island with its sacred shrine and the strange sea around it, the Vale of Temple road along the foothill facing the sea.
