My Life My Stories: Weird Place, Weird People and weird time of spaces.

I was stumble upon when I heard a story of an adult man lost in a nowhere land where science cannot explain this phenomenon. While we are monitoring the SPM candidate at SMK Lohan Ranau there is a space for us to have a chit-chat at the back and the story about the adult man protrude during our conversation. Off-course our conversation were in  a silent mode and not effecting the SPM candidate in answering their question. The story about a strange phenomenon experienced by an adult man from Kg Mohimboyon Ranau were told by my friend Mr Lajibi Machi or I use to call him "B". The story goes like this.....     

During the rainy season in early 1960s a group of people from Kg Mohimboyon and several village near Kg Mohimboyon were travelling from Ranau to Tamparuli. The aim was to get supply for their daily usage. Travelling from Ranau to Tamparuli those day would take almost one week because the traveler need to go through the thick jungle before reaching Tamparuli town. Actually there was a road but there was no transportation available during that time. To cut short, the traveler will use the short-cut through the thick jungle through the kale-yard to the final destination. Among the traveler, there was an adult man where I forgot his name who was big, tall and strong. He wanted to go Tamparuli to get supply for his family. Before he join the traveler, he wanted to eat a white chicken but it was a bad luck for him because he cannot found it. So he left his desire to eat a white chicken and join the traveler. It was hard life during that time and many people did not like to travel where it would effect their safety because of the "Pangaits or Songorib" and the wild beast such as snake and tiger. If their fall ill it would be the biggest problem for them. 

After traveling for three days and three nights, they nearly reach Tamparuli. They stop at a place call Togop this-day, the adult man wanted to take a pee and told his uncle to wait for him. While he was enjoying his moments to throw his body waste suddenly he saw a white chicken walking slowly. Huh what a luck for me he said and slowly followed the white chicken. He try and try, again and again catching the white chicken but  he cannot caught it. At one moment he felt that he wanted to look back and he stop, turn around at his back and look with full surprise !!. He cannot remembered his way back to his travel companion and the exact word to describe it.. he was LOST!!!. When he turn around again to look at the white chicken, the white chicken was also gone and cannot be spotted anywhere else. He sat down and began to think a lot of thing. He shouted and shouted calling for his uncle but there was no reply. So he decided to walk where the white chicken disappeared from his view. After several hours walking he finally found a flat land where only small grass sprout around the area. It look like a paire grass land!!!.

He walked through the flat land and saw a village where the house were built beautifully structured. He then walked slowly to the village and felt attracted where the house was built nicely and colorful. He cannot imagine where he was and felt wondered. Suddenly he saw many people looking at him through the window of their house. He felt a little bit scared and shame because he entered a village without any permission. He afraid to be called as an intruder where those day you could be killed if you entered a village with your own will. He raised his hand up but the villager did not give any respond or reaction through his action. Suddenly, appeared an old man where he knew him but in his memory the old man was already passed away couple years ago but in time like this he cannot think of anything else. He needed help and off-course safety for his life. The old man said to him, what are you doing here? Then he told his story from the beginning till the end. The old man shaked his head and place his hand through the adult man shoulder. Don't worry I'll send you back to your village he said. 

The old man told the adult man not to travel around the village, where all the villager were dressed in white just like the color of the chicken where he try to catch. The old man went inside his house and while waiting the adult man were been observed by the villagers. The way the villagers look at him really weird where the look was different from ordinary people he knew. All the villagers dressed in white, look so clean, scented smell and look really in peace. The old man appeared back again and bring along a healthy fat white chicken. He gave the white chicken to the adult man and said to him, "Next time when you wanted to eat something, you need to full fill it first before you do anything or travel to other places". You must remembered this he said..." Then the adult man take and hug the chicken like a man got a valuable gift from a king. He said thank you and wave his hand to the villagers. The villagers smile and wish him a safe journey.

The old man hold the adult hand and walked slowly through the flat land. They walked and walked. The adult man looked at the front and sometime looked at the back. When he looked down, he startled when he saw cloud. They are walking above the cloud and the wind feel so great to him. The old man asked the adult man to look forward, hold the chicken and do not talk too much. The old man stop and asked the adult man to follow a road and you will found your way back to home he said. The adult man said thank you again, shake the old man hand and walk to the road. The adult man looked back but the old man already disappeared. Then the adult man walk along the road and found a village but... it was the Togudon Village where located 10 km from his village.. I supposed so...

The adult man had grown his beard and mustache. He was lost for 3 months. He thought that he was apart from his travel companion for just one day only. The villagers from Kg Togudon send him back to his village. The people at his village thought that he was already dead killed by wild beast and already made a funereal tribute for him. He told his story to his family, relatives and the villagers about his strange experience and how he met "his savior" where presumed dead. The story carried from one generation to another until my friend mother told the so-called weird story to him. The outcome of the chicken was unknown weather it was ate by the adult man or not. The adult man already passed away couple years ago and for that I cannot confirm the story from him. Thanks to Mr Lajibi Machi for his wonderful story.
