    Hundreds flock to the Shah Alam museum in Malaysia to see an exhibit of a mummified mermaid. The hair is the only item that has been added onto the exhibit. The picture was taken by Azahan Roslil. The mermaid owner Safuan Abu Bakar was offered RM300k by an Australian but he rejected the offer claiming that the exhibit was too rare.

    The mermaid was tracked down from a neighbouring country and yellow rice was used to draw it to the surface. Safuan also welcomes any scientist or interested parties to conduct experiments to prove they were not genuine. The exhibition will be ending on October 4th 2006.

    How did the P-Team manage to capture a mermaid? Safuan said they tracked it down in a neighbouring country using mandram (magic) and yellow rice to draw it to the surface.

    “Everyone knows of mermaids but most of the time, these creatures are portrayed as beautiful young women. But we have yet to see one that fits this description.”

    A mermaid, he explained, is “born” maybe once in a thousand years.

    Safuan said the mermaid on display at the exhibition looks the same as it did when it was captured.

    “An Australian wanted to buy it for RM300,000, but we cannot sell something as rare and special as this.”

    Safuan said the paranormal team was formed in 1993 and its latest mission was to capture a jin two months ago.

    “During our missions, many of us have had bizarre and unexplainable experiences. But we pray and meditate before embarking on our missions and so far, none of us has been harmed.

    “Most of us are also vegetarians and undergo a lot of spiritual preparation.”

    Safuan said the most common supernatural being the team has encountered is the toyol.

    “Recently, a village was terrorised by a toyol and we assisted them in capturing the creature.

    “The funny thing is when a toyol steals from a person’s wallet, it would not take all the money, unlike a human who would steal everything.”

    Safuan said all the exhibits were real and he welcomed any scientist or interested party to conduct experiments to prove they were not genuine.

    “We have X-rays and DNA results to support our claims. Besides, some exhibits till today still emit the same smell as they did when we captured them.

    “There are beings in the seen and unseen world. For those who don’t believe … it’s up to them.”

    Another draw is the langsuir, which is said to be the flying vampire of Malaysia and can be only captured by those with strong spiritual powers.

    It is said that a woman becomes such a creature if she dies in childbirth, or from the shock of hearing that her child is stillborn.

    The Nyi Belorong or Nyai Blorong is represented as a beautiful female with the lower part of the body of a snake. The creature seduces the weak, especially men craving for riches.

    It is commonly known as the snake demoness of wealth.

    The jenglot is said to have existed before the dawn of man and has the same DNA and bone structure as humans. The creature is said to exist in China, Peru, Chile and Indonesia.

    Other exhibits include the toyol, which was caught trying to steal money from a man’s wallet, and a jin, which has the ability to transform into various forms.

    I never seen anyone die the way that mermaid hand sticking out, I’m sure someone sew up half fish and half baby, and mummerfied it. When people die naturally, the hand dont stick out like that.

    When the fish died, it became dried.
    They just added the hair, I think the rest is true.

    My mother has told me stories about mermaids (oh, I love those stories) and how they would follow your boat. My mother says it is true because my grandfather said he saw one…

    I am still a skeptic but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did exist. Besides these fables, I am sure, may be linked to a stretched truth.

    Have any of you heard any stories about mermaids?

    how about Hanuman falling in love with Sovahnn macha the mermaid. Hanuman’s army was crossing his bridge when he notice it kept getting shorter and sinking into water. He went to look in the water and saw Sovahnn taking apart the bridge so he tried to catch her. She was playing with him then later felt he loved her and and she did also. Then they had a baby half monkey half fish. Don’t we have a khmer dance to this? I’m sure we do. I have the storie written down somewhere. I’ll post it up when I have time.

    Wow…is this a fact? If that’s so, it’s very unbelievable!

    The mummerfied mermaid does look ugly and scary.

    The Disney Little Mermaid is just a fairy tale cartoon so therefore Ariel looks beautiful.

    I’ve this feeling that perhaps mermaid do exist but long, long ago when humans weren’t on this planet, probably long before the era of the dinosaurs. Mermaids may look ugly in reality? God…who ever knows…

    I’m sure you people have heard of the real baby born with her legs together. They named her the baby mermaid.

    Doctors separate legs of ‘mermaid’ baby



    Doctors in Peru say they have successfully separated the legs of a baby girl dubbed “little mermaid” because she was born with legs fused from her thighs to her ankles.

    Following the 4½-hour surgery, Dr. Luis Rubio held up 13-month-old Milagros Cerron’s legs in a V-shape to show the line of stitches extending from her heels to her inner thighs.

    “This surgical intervention has been a true success,” he said.

    But she still could need 15 years of corrective surgeries, Rubio said. Doctors need to reconstruct and repair some of her internal organs.

    Milagros was born with a rare congenital defect known as sirenomelia, or “mermaid syndrome.” It occurs in one out of every 70,000 births.

    Rubio said there are only three known cases of children with the defect alive in the world today,

    The surgery, performed by 11 doctors, including plastic surgeons, pediatricians and heart specialists, was televised live and watched by the child’s parents.

    here’s another one in a museum.
