Former Nee Soon Rubber Estate

Recommendation by Lemi

We’ve mentioned the “pontianak” quite a few times, so it’s time to get to know her. The residents of Sembawang around the former Nee Soon Rubber Estate are quite familiar with this spirit. Groves of rubber trees used to grow in the Nee Soon Rubber Estate, attracting the violent vampires to the neighborhood. Now, flats have replaced the trees, but the spirits remain. They even make appearances on the balcony of residents’ homes at times. The “pontianak” is the restless spirit of a woman who died in childbirth. She has long black hair, red eyes, and a bloodied dress of white. They’re mostly known to prey on men, digging out their organs to feed on. Keep an ear out for a baby’s cries—faint means she’s nearby, loud means she’s far away. A sharp nose will also help, the “pontianak” brings a whiff of frangipani flowers with her.
