Teatime. Got Cucur Udang, Pisang Goreng and Keropok Lekor from a Hantu. Typical Malay teatime food.
Hmm..this keropok lekor too tough for me. I guess I have better stick to the sweet crunchy Pisang Goreng.
Another Hantu presented Mamarazzi with this Pontianak book in a jest the other day. Scary looking cover ya.
Oh my! Oh my! what a long and sharp teeth she have. Kesian her dentist if she ever go for a scalling or dental works.
What is the story about? It's about Amira, a half Pontianak. Her father, Iskandar, was a human while her mother, Hamidah, was a Pontianak.
Her parents meet when he dad was researching the existence of Pontianak. Ngum ngum he heard there was Pontianak trouble in a village. He went and investigate. Came face to face with the Pontianak.
He heard her sad story where she was cheated by a rich man, Malek, and was murdered when she was pregnant with their out of wedlock child. She seek revenge.
He managed to turn the Pontianak into human by sticking a Golden Nail to her neck. Somehow after she turned into human, she had forgotten all about her past.
Iskandar fell in love with her and married her. Thru their union, they were blessed with a daughter, Amira. Unfortunately, Amira has Pontianak blood in her and thus have some of the powers of the Pontianak.
One day, her parents died of a mysterious death. Her mother's head were chopped off while her father died of a neck wound. She thought that her mother had somehow turned back into a Pontianak and killed her dad.
Many years later when she was in her 20s, Amira had a hard time in accepting any male courtship. She scared that she can't control her Pontianak impulses and might kill the man she love, like what she assumed her mother did.
At the same time, there surface some cases where girls died of horrible death. Head sever from their body.
A police officer, Farid investigate these cases. Several incidents leads him to meet Amira. He was smitten with Amira and vice versa. Love blossom in Amira's heart but what about her Pontianak blood? Might she not on day loose control and kill Farid?
Then he discover something that tied Amira to the crimes. Seems that all of the victims mother's name are Hamidah.
He cautioned Amira that she might be a target and put a surveillance on her.
One day, Amira was kidnapped. Amira managed to escape and be rescued. Through this experience, she knew that her parent were murders.
Before she can do much, her flatmate who is her best friend was kidnapped. They kidnapped Linda to set a trap for Amira.
The evil schemer was Malek. Amira's mother's lover. Malek wanted to kill Amira because he knew that Pontianak blood is in Amira's vein and one days she will come to know about Malek and that she will seek revenge.
Amira fell into the evil trap and she.......

Overall, Mamarazzi is pleasantly surprised at this "westernised" version of the horror story.
