I found this so interesting. I had to read up on Malaysian spirits of the jungle.
I think this can be translated via Google into your language.
This is for all you who venture deep into the green lungs of the earth in search of exotic beauties.

I found it pretty darn interesting.
P1 I found this herb very beautiful the color intense and very interesting.
P2 to P3 is a white mushroom growing on the death wood wondering whether can it or not looks so yummy.
P4 another view of the forest landscape.
@Zainal re that tunnel : I have used that tunnel numerous times but thankfully, no such paranormal incident has happened to me.
The only weird incident on the road happened around the late 60's. Four of us, all teachers from the same school had travelled to Penang in one car, to watch a rugby match between visiting Thai and Ausrtalian teams. The match finished at around 7pm. We went to Gurney Drive for our dinner and it must have been about 9pm when we left Penang. Around this time there was still no North-South highway.Along the way it started to rain very heavily which soon became a tropical storm with all the accompanying deluge and thunder and lightning. There was still no let-up when we reached Sungai Petani. We found ourselves in a long queue of vehicles, in front of the General Hospital,, and after half an hour we had still not moved from our position. Then a policeman came along to inform us that a huge tree had been blown down across the road and it wasn't possible to clear it until the early morning. He advised us to turn back to Penang. That really wasn't an option as we had school the next day. We told him so, and he suggested that we could turn off into a side road, which was a laterite rubber estate road through an old overgrown rubber estate and emerge behind the queue at the other end. But he was quick to add that it wasn't advisable on this dark and stormy night as the path(that was what it was actually) wasn't very distinct even in bright daylight. Being desperate we were willing to try and duly turned into the laterite road. We had cause to regret the decision for soon the path petered out into a deadend blocked by undergrowth and and we stopped to take stock of our situation. It was still raining heavily with the occasional bolts of lightning. Suddenly in the car headlights we saw an elderly woman dressed in white baju kurung (a loose fitting, ankle length dress, worn by Malay women), carrying a black umbrella to protect herself from the rain, standing a bit to the left of the car about 20 feet away and beckoning towards us as if to follow her. Without hesitation our friend who was driving turned the car in her direction and when we came to about 8 feet from her she pointed to an overgrown 'avenue' (these avenues/lanes between rows of rubber trees) and waved us on. Our friend continued ploughing down this lane covered with low bushes. None of us uttered a word but I am sure all of us, except the driver wondered if we had done the right thing. 15 minutes later we came out onto the main road. It must have been 2 am by then.
Well, we made it to school, thanks to that old woman, in the middle of nowhere, that dark and stormy night. And we never even thanked her. So I take this opportunity to belatedly thank her whoever and wherever she is.
