PGHK #103 Kong Tao (降头)

Jul 30, 2007 | Ghost Stories, Podcast | 15 comments

Guests: Ban Chang Kueh, Ah Leng, Motoleng, Wiwiwawa, & Pong Pah.

We explored the intriguing world of voodoo, what we call Kong Tao in Hokkien.
This show is both creepy and exciting. Believe it or not, it was fun and informative for me, I hope you’ll enjoy too. Share your own knowledge and experience here in the comments area, or join our Penang Hokkien Forum.

A special welcome to all the new Kwong Wah Jit Poh’s readers.

    i watch a movie before…
    the wife scare her husband find girls outside…
    so when she finish cook rice…
    she put the rice cooker at floor…
    than take off her cloth…
    open the rice cooker and let the steam from the rice cooker steam her “private part”…(her leg like riding horse “kar kang kang” above rice cooker)
    than all the sweat and “those liquid” fall in to the rice…
    when her husband back home for dinner…
    than give her husband eat…
    so her husband wont go out find girls anymore…

    ding ding tong tiang
    zui zui jiak pa pang pui chao hiam hiam
