From the beliefs and myths of Malaysia. She was an attractive woman who died in childbirth. Her agony lived with her after death and she returned as a Ghost to the land of the living. In the woods she would stalk and hunt mothers to steal and eat their children. It is said that if one puts glass beads in their mouths or eggs under their armpits they will be protected from her.
