Toyol in Grandma’s House
Siti lived with her parents in Johor Baru in the state of Johor. Her father was a clerk then and her mother was a housewife. They lived in a Government quarters and this incident when she was only primary 2. When she was that age, about 8 years old, she went with her mother to visit her grandmother for a few days.

Depiction of a ‘toyol’
This incident occurred when Siti was going to bed at about 11 pm. She was sleeping with her mother in bed and she getting comfortable and sleepy. Just before her eyes closed, she saw a small-goblin-like creature jumped on her bed and stared at her eyes. Yeaaaah! It was green in colour and red beady eyes and when he laughed, Siti could see a row of small sharp teeth in his mouth. Staring back at that “thing” and desperately tugging at her mother to wake up. The child-like thing just grinned at her and ran away from the bedroom.
Heard her grandma told her mother said, “toyol at the wooden house always cause trouble”.
