T for Toyol by tohdaryl T for Toyol by tohdaryl
A Toyol or Tuyul is a mythical spirit in Malay mythology of South-East Asia (notably Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore).

It is sometimes called the “Kwee Kia” in Hokkien. In Thailand, they are called Koman-tong (Male) and Koman-lay (Female). In Philippines they have a similar child spirit called the “tiyanak”. InCambodia they are called “Cohen Kroh”. In South Korea called “Do Yeol”. It is a small child spirit invoked by a dukun (Indonesian shaman) or pawang (Malay witch doctor) from a dead humanfetus using black magic.

Isn't this the same spirit that was incorporated into the plot of the horror/comedy film Dead and Breakfast?

Nice work sir, thank you for posting this

Hi. my name is Jovencio Jimenez and Im a researcher about Philippine mythology.. I would just like to ask if you could participate in a survey that I made for my thesis, this involves the effect of an innovation of Philippine Mythology, by applying illustration from culture mapping. "Culture mapping", a method created by the author to create distinction of the gods over other cultures. for more information you can visit my page at at www.facebook.com/mitopilipinas…;

the survey only consists of 13 questions, and would take only 3-5 minutes of your time. 

hoping for your response

salamat

Meanwhile, one hypothesis for the tiyanaks here is that they were aborted babies of perhaps long ago-- left to the forest. A possible reason: a baby conceived after a rape case.
