While I was away in Japan, there was the case of the blindfolded doll that was found under the tree in Hougang – did you hear about it?
Even though it’s been awhile since this case happened, but pictures of the doll is still going viral. And now if you were wondering what happened..
The Story of The Creepy Blindfolded Doll in Singapore
On a busy street in Singapore, locals stumbled across a small doll that was leaning up against a tree. It looked like an antique and its eyes were bound, with strange writing on the cloth. No one was nearby to claim the doll. After researching the doll’s backstory and the words written on the blindfold, it became clear that this wasn’t an item to be returned to the lost and found.
This is how the doll was found. By herself, next to a tree.
The doll’s eyes were blindfolded. According to online sources, The Arabic word on the cloth is translated as “bismillah.” (I think it’s to trap whatever jinn or curse is inside from coming out or following the owner back home. Others speculate it’s a product of black magic.)
And this is how the doll looks like with it’s eyes uncovered…
Nobody seems to really know why the doll is there, except for the cryptic and excessively terrifying note left by someone who posted the original photo on Imgur: “We bind it for a reason. Stupid people unbind it. It looks unhappy, good luck whoever did it…”
Stories from Twitter revealed the following:
That the doll is possessed and has been moving around on its own when the original owner isn’t home. She bound the eyes and left it far away from home so it wouldn’t follow her back.
Some say the doll could be heard talking when it’s left alone in a room and is found with its head turned in a different direction. People heard it speak in the Malay language and sound like an adult female.
The original owner found that the only way to get rid of it and make sure it won’t come back is to cover its eyes. The curse is rumored to have passed on to someone else who found it and untied the cloth unknowingly.
On the very day the locals found it, there was a freaky suicide (guy hanging beside an apartment block) and murder case, which could be coincidence.
The doll has been missing since being discovered.
And if you were wondering – the creator of this doll is created by an artist who specialized in making creepy dolls. You can check out her Facebook Page: Christie Bastet Creepydolls
