The Illusive Oily Man (Orang Minyak)
Tracking the trails of Orang Minyak is interesting as there
are many opinions of the origins of Orang Minyak:
·Practitioner of Malay magical arts for the
purpose to steal
·Practitioner of Thai magic
·Practitioner of yoga
·Criminal in disguise
Terms & conditions of being an Orang Minyak:
·Have a pact with the Devil
·To rape 40 virgins, some say 99
·Must be male (obviously)
The abilities of an Orang Minyak:
·Able to enter through narrow seams and locked
·Able to be invisible
·Difficult to be caught by bare hands (slippery)
Mode of operations:
·Always appear as black oily creature
·Always work in dark
·Usually shit after stealing or raping to prevent
people from breaking his spell
The weakness of an Orang Minyak:
·Can be killed if strike by the branch of Petai
·If banana heart petals and bera taro leaves are
sprinkled around a room, then the Orang Minyak will be trapped. At this point
if a piece of batik cloth is used to cover this Orang Minyak to weaken him, and
his thumbs are bitten, the Orang Minyak will die.
·Orang Minyak is afraid of rains because water
will make him visible to others.
·He is also said to be afraid of mirrors.
Frankly, I don’t have too much information on this Orang
Minyak; so my conclusion is that an Orang Minyak must be the working of
a physical criminal covered himself in black oil; the magical aspects are non-existence. That is really a good thing as considering how much harm one person can do to our society. However, if you have any
information of Orang Minyak and willing to share; then kindly let me know.
