The Kappa Legend - Asian Horror.

I really love investigating the Asian legends and folklores. They make for good reading, if not for fantastic storytelling in my house by a loving father amusing his two daughter :) 
 Some well-known Japanese folktales and legends often involves humorous,bizarre characters or situations and also includes an assortment of supernatural beings -like these Kappa,  a water-based demon story.


The Kappa (Nothing to do with sportswear), from Japanese lore, is named after the famous river god, Kappa. They are the legendary creatures found in Japanese folklore and a creature known by every Japanese. Their scaly, reptilian skin ranges in color from green to yellow or blue.They been described  figure who is about two feet tall, covered with green, yellow, or blue scales from head to toe, and equipped with a tortoise shell on his back. Kappas supposedly inhabit the ponds and rivers of Japan and have various features to aid them in this environment, such as webbed hands and feet. They are sometimes said to smell like fish and they can certainly swim like them. In some tales, the Kappa is associated with theft, raping women and snatching little children into the water and drowning them.


There were a variety of stories attached to the kappa.They may even befriend human beings in exchange for gifts and offerings, especially cucumbers, the only food Kappa are known to enjoy more than human children. Japanese parents sometimes write the names of their children on cucumbers and toss them into waters believed to be infested with Kappa in order to mollify the creatures and allow the family to bathe. There is even a kind of cucumber-filled sushi roll named for the Kappa, the kappamaki.


As water monsters, kappa have been frequently blamed for drownings, and are often said to try to lure people to the water and pull them in with their great skill at wrestling. They are sometimes said to take their victims for the purpose of eating their livers or their shirikodama , a mythical ball inside the anus. There is a known phenomena that when a person dies a drowning death, their anus will often swell. The Japanese explained this as being caused the kappa.Even today, signs warning about kappa appear by bodies of water in some Japanese towns and villages. .

While modern Japanese people think that Kappa was the old legend, it could be that the Giant Japanese Salamander sometimes be mistaken as the mythical Kappa ?

Hari Ribut, Runduklah Padi.

Ketika semua warga dunia mengikuti perkembangan dan bimbang akan ancaman taufan Irene, 2 lagi "Super Typhoon" dijangkakan akan membedal persisiran pantai Jepun dalam minggu ini. Diberitakan salah satu taufan tersebut mempunyai kekuatan angin selaju 123 batu sejam - lebih berbahaya dari taufan Irene!

Hurricane Irene

Walaupun taufan ini tidak membawa kepada bahaya ombak tsunami, ancaman situasi seperti tanah runtuh juga mempunyai risiko buruk dan boleh membawa kepada malapetaka yang lebih besar. 

Dua taufan yang dijangkakan akan membedal persisiran pantai Jepun

Untuk pengetahuan umum, Pulau Langkawi juga teruk dilanda ribut. Sudah lima hari hujan turun tidak berhenti henti dan alhamdulillah, belum ada apa apa kemalangan dan kerosakkan yang dilaporkan. Yang malang hanyalah para petani dipetak sawah kerana di beberapa tempat, banyak padi runduk ditiup angin kencang...


Rakaman dari  jendela rumah saya. Hujan turun mencurah curah. Rahmat bulan Ramadhan.

Dan dalam kekalutan musim hujan ini, teringat pula saya kepada lagu lama warisan melayu yang liriknya berbunyi;

Hari ribut
Runduklah padi
Padi cupak
Dato Temenggung...


 
Duh.....

Temenggor Lake - Killer Fish in Malaysian Lake?

The middle range of Titiwangsa mountains is thought by many to be the greatest fishing grounds God ever created on earth.The scenery is gorgeous,so dont forget to take along your camera.View the river and waterfall flows that have poured these areas for thousand of years and you'll suddenly realize why it felt like you had landed on the "Indiana Jones" jungle area.Temenggor Lake is growing but this lake hasn't suffered from the urban sprawl of many cities nearby.

Do have full commitment to fishing over here.It simply needs to be witnessed to be experienced. By the way, Temenggor Lake also well known as the home to the giant killer fish - The "Snakehead" - Toman !!!!


8kg Snakehead.
Toman - Large in personality as well as physique. Described as "alien monsters" "the stuff of nightmares" and "something from a bad horror movie", they are said to eat human flesh and attack without provocation - "Jaws" for the new millennium !


Another Toman.
These fish proved to be the greatest predator in Temenggor Lake.In Florida (USA), they attack humans and pets as worse as crocodiles !


I'm planning on going back to Japan for another fishing trip with my Oto san early next year. I'm hopeful that I can enter a new fishing territory in more ways than one. Searching for the river monsters there are like no others anyone ever had encountered - from the devastating "Namazu," which Japanese legend says causes earthquakes, to a child-snatching killer called the "Kappa."  You should visit Japan to find out, uncover the truth behind these legends and the reality behind these horrific tale.

I will keep you posted once I am there :)

The Japanese legend of “Namazu”- (Or Ōnamazu) is a giant catfish who causes earthquakes.He lives in the mud beneath the earth, and is guarded by the god Kashima who restrains the catfish with a stone. When Kashima lets his guard fall, Namazu thrashes about, causing violent earthquakes.

The Day After Trinity: The Clock Stopped At 11:02 AM

"I have decided to reposting this entry (previously in my Samuraiblues.com blog) and dedicate to the memory of those who perished when atomic bombs fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki half a century ago. May all the souls rest in peace".


August 9, 1945- At 9:44 a.m., "Bockscar", a B-29 Superfortress bomber carrying "Fat Man", the world’s third atomic bomb, arrives at its primary target, Kokura. The city is covered in haze and smoke from an American bombing raid on a nearby city. "Bockscar" turns to its secondary target Nagasaki. At 11:02 a.m. the world’s third atomic bomb explosion devastates Nagasaki, the intense heat and blast indiscriminately slaughters its inhabitants. President Truman speaks to the American people via radio broadcast. He states: 




"The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in the first instance to avoid, in so far as possible, the killing of civilians.Hiroshima and Nagasaki were chosen as targets because of their concentration of activities and population."  More than 95 percent of those killed at Hiroshima and Nagasaki were civilians and Soviet Union begins its offensive against Japan in Manchuria.


The clock stopped at 11:02 a.m., the moment the world's third atomic bomb, "Fat Man" is detonated above Nagasaki, Japan.


August 10,1945.The U.S. drops warning leaflets on Nagasaki on the day after the bombing.


August 13 - 14, 1945.Japanese physicists, investigating the epicenter of the Hiroshima bomb burst, start noticing high levels of radioactivity.



August 14,1945. Japan surrenders.
 
August 15,1945.Emperor Hirohito of Japan, in a radio broadcast to his nation, announces that Japan has lost the war. The Emperor’s announcement is hard to understand because he speaks in archaic court Japanese, but one fact is understood:


"Moreover, the enemy has begun to employ a new and most cruel bomb, the power of which to damage is indeed incalculable, taking the toll of many innocent lives." The New York Times reports, "Russia’s entry into the Japanese war was the decisive factor in speeding its end and would have been so, even if no atomic bombs had been dropped, is the opinion of Major-General Claire Chennault .."

September 2,1945. Japan formally signs documents of surrender.

Langkawi Dark & Demonic Tales Of Gua Langsuir (Cave Of The Banshee)

Gua Langsuir , "Cave of the Sirens."or "Cave of the Banshee" - A famous cave on the island of Langkawi -Malaysia. It overlooks a narrow sea channel between the island and the main island of Langkawi. The channel provides the easiest access to the open sea for fishermen.

Gua Langsuir - One can easily reach here by hiring speedboats from Kuah Jetty.

According to folklores,a long time ago the cave was inhabited by three hideous female demons or Langsuir (from malay folklores, Langsuir is one of the most feared and deadliest of all banshees). It was believed that woman who died giving birth to their child, who also dies, will become a " Langsuir" after 40 days. She is described as being hideous with red piercing eyes, sharp and long claws, very long hair, a decayed face, and huge fangs. She is able to fly and is most often seen wearing a green or white robe.They also had the ability to assume the form of the most beautiful women, and would sing and behave in a provocative way whenever sailors of fishermen passed before them. The men would be so enchanted by them that they lost control and jumped into the roaring sea in order to swim to them. Most of the men drowned and those who succeeded in going up to the cliff to be with the sirens would be tortured to a slow and painful death, later to be devoured. So the people wisely stayed away and the sirens were not getting any more victims and grew bored.
 

One day, a lone fisherman who was both deaf and short-sighted rowed out in his boat towards the sea. He passed the cave of the sirens without noticing them. He was fishing and managed to catch a lot of fish in this area, which was understandable since all other fishermen avoided the place. The sirens were overjoyed for at last they would have another victim. They went out of their cave, positioned themselves on the cliff in front, and started to sing. The fisherman, unable to see or hear them, went about his business. At first this surprised the sirens since they never experienced this before and no one could resist their charm. Then surprise became disappointment, thinking they had lost their charm, and surprise turned into fear. They were afraid men would climb the cliff to ravish them, or that the relatives of their victims would have their revenge on them. In their fear and confusion, the flew away from the cave never to return.
 
The men of Langkawi never knew who had saved them. And the deaf and short sighted fisherman was unaware of his meritorious services to the people of Langkawi.

Langsuir - A female vampiric ghost in Malay folklore, who can
change into a cricket or grasshopper. She flew through the night and would be heard wailing from the trees in the forest or uninhabited island.  (Images credit to Google)

 
I don't know if the legend is true or not but dont forget to visit Gua Langsuir once you are in Langkawi. However, This cave is recommended only for serious cavers with mountain climbing experience as the ascent to the cave demands great climbing skill and absolute physical fitness.


Crossing the Cave of Banshee requires walking & some wading. Some times of year the water is waist-deep !

Langkawi Island : The Healing Power Of Gamat (Sea Cucumber) Soap !

According to a popular version of the folktales, a fisherman named Gamat discovered the healing properties of gamat (sea cucumber) by chance more than 300 years ago.The fisherman discovered the strange looking sea creature when he was washed to a coral reef after his boat sank.Clinging to a wooden plank, Gamat drifted in the sea for a long time before reaching the reef.

The sharp edges of the coral further bruised his battered body. Gamat then saw this weird sea creature, caught it and ate it raw as he was very hungry. Then, he rubbed the fluid oozing from the creature onto his wounds.Miraculously his wounds healed fast - leaving no signs at all on his body. After been completely healed and got his energy restored, Gamat swam back to the shore.His survival stories spread like wildfire throughout the island. Since then, Langkawi folks have been taking gamat for healing wounds and restoring energy.



Sea Cucumber Soap Nicely Wrapped With Batik Cloth.

Gamat in Malay means sea cucumber. In wikipedia - it refers to medicinal remedies made from any of several species of the animal. The golden sea cucumber (Stichopus horrens) is commonly used. Gamat is usually the dried, powdered bodies of sea cucumbers made into a lotion or other topical salve. It is sometimes mixed into clay and applied as a facial mask, or put in tea and consumed for stomach complaints. The local people believe that a solution of sea cucumbers can heal cuts, skin eruptions, and ulcers, and claim that it has a beneficial effect on the immune system. It is also good to cure black spots, pimples,oily face,freckles and itchiness of your skin. 


Gaya Minami's Gamat Soap Contain A Natural Ingredient That Moisturizes Your Skin. 

Langkawi people have long believed that sea cucumber has wonderful healing powers.There are many version of stories on how was discovered.By the way, these sea Cucumber is not a cucumber at all; it is a marine life that is rich in protein, vitamins and minerals and yet another gift to our good health from the sea.

Masuk Hutan Keluar Hutan: Perjuangan Yang Belum Selesai !

Saya tidak pernah menyesal meninggalkan tanah besar dan berhijrah ke Pulau Langkawi semenjak 15 tahun yang lalu.Bagi saya, suasana di sini amat nyaman, hutan hujannya masih subur menghijau dan banyak puncak puncak bukit disini mempunyai pemandangan yang amat menakjubkan.  Subhanallah !



Explorasi ke hutan Gunung Mat Chincang sekali lagi membuktikan yang ianya masih berpotensi besar untuk menjadi Taman Hidupan Liar di Langkawi.Ini kerana hutan hujan ini masih terdapat burung burung, haiwan hutan serta serangga eksotik pelbagai warna dan rupa yang ditemui sepanjang ekspidisi tengah hari tadi. 
Berbagai pohon pohon besar bersaiz balak juga tumbuh subur di hutan ini dan sesetengah flora di gunung ini yang mempunyai nilai perubatan yang amat tinggi. Contoh terbaik- pokok Tongkat Ali !

Pendek kata, "product" sudah ada, hanya menunggu agensi tempatan yang berminat saja untuk membuat promosi. Tetapi janganlah sampai kawasan hutan hujan tersebut terlalu "dicommersialisedkan" dan berkemungkinan menjejaskan alam sekitar Pulau Langkawi.Sebagai contoh, bilangan pelawat harus dihadkan supaya tidak mengganggu dan merosakkan alam sekitar. Cuba tengok apa sudah jadi dengan Pulau Payar akibat kegagalan memantau bilangan pelancong yang berlebihan masuk?
 Punah ranah akhirnya.


Pesanan saya, pemantauan berterusan diperlukan di kawasan ini untuk mengelakkan pihak-pihak tertentu menyeludup keluar hasil eksotik hutan seperti pelanduk, napoh dan ayam hutan ataupun pepohon balak untuk tembolok taukeh-taukeh besar. Puak puak yang mencuri hasil hutan ini tidak memahami nilai sebenar hutan. Bagi mereka, hasil hari ini adalah lebih penting dari hari kemudian. Mereka terlupa apa yang orang putih pernah berkata "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better".

Diharap rayuan saya ini mendapat kerjasama kerajaan negeri dan sokongan anda semua yang masih menghargai pemberian Allah amatlah dihargai. Bukannya apa, semoga generasi masa depan dapat menikmati keindahan alam hasil perjuangan pejuang hari ini  :-)
Amin !

Hiroshima: Bridge to Forgiveness - Bacaan Terbaik Buat Semua !


Buku karangan Takashi Tanemori berjudul Hiroshima: Bridge To Forgiveness adalah bacaan terbaik yang pernah saya baca untuk tahun 2011. Buku yang berbaur dengan perasaan benci dan sayang ini adalah kisah benar dan memoir penulis sendiri yang menyaksikan kezaliman tentera bersekutu mengebom bandar Hiroshima pada bulan Ogos tahun 1945. Akibat serangan dasyat tersebut, Takashi kehilangan ibu bapa serta 2 lagi adik beradik dan beliau sendiri menjadi yatim piatu. Diceritakan juga disini kisah penulis yang terpaksa hidup sendirian dijalanan sehingga berumur 18 tahun dimana beliau bertekad untuk ke bumi Amerika untuk membalas dendam !
 (Anda boleh membaca kisah post serangan keatas Hiroshima oleh saya disini : http://hasnulyakin.blogspot.com/2011/04/re-issue-surat-terbuka-buat-president.html


Buku ini juga menjelaskan bagaimana penulis mengharungi hidup yang tertekan akibat radiasi bom atom sewaktu beliau berumur 8 tahun sehingga ke hari ini.  

Sebuah buku "spiritual" yang harus dibaca !

Wordless Wednesday #2 : Live, Life & Inspired



Toyotomi Hideyoshi - was born a commoner but rose to be the most powerful man in Japan. He inspired me to know and be true to myself, and to live my life for the benefit of others.

Do you know yourself and can you live more truly to yourself ?


Penemuan Tulang Gergasi Kaum Nabi Hud-Satu Pembohongan !


Saya pernah terbaca kisah penemuan tulang gergasi di bumi Arab yang kononnya milik kaum Aad yang hidup pada zaman Nabi Hud. Dikhabarkan tulang-tulang tersebut ditemui secara tidak sengaja sewaktu explorasi Syarikat Aramco mencari minyak & gas di padang pasir " Rab-Ul-Khalee" di Timur Barat.

Kisah yang mula timbul pada awal bulan Oktober 2002 ini dikatakan menjadi rahsia tentera dan kawasan tersebut juga telah ditutup untuk umum serta dikawal rapi pihak tentera. Walau bagaimanapun rahsia tersebut akhirnya bocor dan gambar-gambar penemuan tulang  tersebut mula tersebar di internet pada tahun yang sama di Arab Saudi. 

Untuk pengetahuan umum, Al-Qur’an memang pernah menyingkap cerita kaum Aad ini setelah diutusnya Nabi Hud untuk membawa agama kepada mereka. Malahan Nabi Hud sendiri adalah berasal dari kaum yang bernama Aad. Tidak dinafikan kaum Aad memang terkenal dengan kekuatan fizikal kerana mereka dikatakan memiliki tubuh yang amat besar serta bersaiz tinggi. Kaum ini dikatakan tinggal di suatu kawasan gurun pasir yang bernama Al-Ahqaf. Mengikut ahli sejarah, kawasan padang pasir ini dipenuhi dengan gunung-gunung pasir dan tampak dari puncaknya lautan.

Untuk yang belum pernah mendengar cerita ini , saya sertakan disini beberapa keping gambar yang kononnya ditemui sewaktu explorasi tersebut sekadar untuk berkongsi bersama.  








Namun setelah kajian terperinci dilakukan, ianya terbukti imej "hoax" atau satu pembohongan.Ini kerana gambar-gambar tersebut adalah gambar yang di edit melalui perisian "Photoshop" untuk satu pertandingan yang dianjurkan oleh laman website Worth100.com  

Gambar asal tulang-tulang tersebut adalah tulang haiwan "Mastodon" (Gajah Pra-Sejarah) milik Cornell University yang ditemui sewaktu explorasi arkeologi menggali dan mencari fosil haiwan tersebut beberapa tahun yang lalu . Ianya kemudian di edit menjadikannya gambar seolah-olah rangka manusia yang boleh berdiri setinggi 30 kaki !
Duh !!!
