The video recording doesn't show any figures or apparitions, but you can hear the laugh of a girl breaking the quiet of the night. The recording was made at 1.48am at an old abandoned Chinese cemetery in Sungai Petani, Kedah in March 2009.
Paranormal investigator and Malaysian Ghost Research founder Augustine Towonsing said the "girl's distinct laugh", recorded during his investigations, is one which most people have described as the laugh of a Pontianak.
Towonsing is a firm believer that ghosts exist in the form of pure energy which has no fixed physical appearance, rather they are based on electromagnetic fields, making their presence felt on electrical scanners and cameras.
"Therefore, seeing ghosts in the form of Pontianak, for instance, is only an explanation of another metaphysic of a ghost appearance, and this appearance may still be relevant in modern days based on how we like to see them," he told Yahoo! in an email interview.
But, despite having almost a decade of experience in paranormal studies and ghost research, Towonsing still believes configurations like the Pontianak exist based on evidence he obtained from that investigation in Sungai Petani. This belief is strengthened by his ability to "see" spirits, which caused Towonsing to continue his career in the paranormal field.
