It’s almost a year since the official announcement  that was made to the public regarding the infamous Pudu jail that is to be brought down and demolished. The infamous pudu jail was built in phases by the British colonial government between 1891 and 1895. Works of deconstructing has taken place within the premise itself as the surrounding walls of the Pudu Jail was brought down including the famous arc that resembles the front gate entrance of the jail. The historical Pudu jail is a national treasure but due to its black history and the structure itself located in the middle of Kuala Lumpur, it has been a problem to the ever growing fast paced city center causing obstacles to developments that include  road widening projects, new buildings, and much more. In fact, according to the government, restoring the pudu jail itself would require a huge sum of money as the expenses for the repair and electricity including maintenance would be very high. The pudu jail was was built on the site of a former Chinese burial ground.  During world war 2 the Japanese occupation forces  incarcerated many allied prisoners of war there. The history of the pudu jail itself is very brutal and dark.  In June 2010, the eastern wall of the Pudu Prison complex was destroyed to make way for a road widening project. According to the government, it’s an eye sore to have the pudu jail structure located in the middle of  kuala lumpur especially since its the capital state of Malaysia.  It is the fastest growing metropolitan region in the country, in terms of population and economy.

My travel’s and adventure took me this time to the infamous Pudu Jail to conduct one night Investigation to seek the truth. As the night fall’s, I ventured into the path’s of the pudu jail which was said to be very haunted, as the prisoners that were hung there are still haunting the place and very much active and still living the life’s of the prisoner even in the afterlife. This could be due to forgiving issues, which they can’t forgive themselves for what they might have done while some don’t realize that they are actually dead. It is exactly 12am mid night as i step in the Pudu Jail, i felt a heavy emotion surrounding the place itself. It was as if the entire place is still very much alive as you would expect 100 years back. As i continued my walk, the air began to get very thick. I could not imagine how the prisoner’s would have felt being confined in such a small jail cell. It’s so hard to breath as the humid level is also very high. There is not much room within the cell, just a stone bed and a small window that you can barely see anything. The jail cell door is extremely strong and heavy. It was made with Iron and other materials. It is impossible to break such a door if any prisoner happen to plan any escape in such a close confined Pudu Jail. As i made my way to the second floor, I used my digital mel meter and k2 meter that measure electromagnetic field to sense any changes in the emf field which spirit’s tend to manipulate the surrounding that will register as a spike in the meter itself as spirits do carry the property of natural magnetic field. Spirit’s exist in the form energy. Just like what Einstein quoted ” E=MC²  ” that clearly explains that energy can never be destroyed but can only be manipulated from one form to the other as spirits vibrate in a higher frequency based on their progress.

As i walked with my detector’s in hand, it picked up number of emf spikes that fluctuated in the form of response as I asked the spirit questions.  I used the k2 meter which has 5 led light’s built on it, where each represent the emf value, as the higher the value of the emf fluctuations is, the higher the led lights on the emf meter will spike. I use it as a response device where I would ask a question and I will wait for a response from the spirit to spike the lights to either 4 for ye or 2 for no. I did numerous session with the entire pudu jail and had some amazing interaction at some particular locations including the place where they hang the prisoners for the death sentence.

As i walked along the place, there was this particular corridor on the first floor where I felt there is someone there. As to my validation, there was a increase of reading on the emf meter as well to backup my experience. I immediately placed my static Sony video camera that has the infrared night more recording function. As I aligned my video camera on my tripod to suit the angle i want to position, I also placed a infrared spotlight to illuminate the entire corridor so there wont be any lack of lighting problem when reviewing the video footage. Due to the busy street outside the premise of pudu jail, it was a challenge to conduct voice recording session to capture evp’s. As I dropped the idea of conducting my evp session, I simply set the video camera on record mode and invited the spirits to take part in my investigation as I moved away from my video camera to the other side of the Pudu jail to continue my venture in exploring to the depths of the historic prison. ” EVP stands for electronic voice phenomena “.

At the second floor, I set up my second video camera aiming towards the prison cell corridor.  After setting it up i continued my walk back to the ground floor and started to snap as much photographs I could of the pudu prison including the interior and the exterior as well. I believe the purpose of photographing the historic pudu prison is to capture the moment of the past that will soon be demolished. It is also a way to convey a message through the photographs as well but of course the main aim for me to photograph the location is to try obtaining any photographs that contain spirit anomaly, apparition or anything related to the paranormal. Due to the dusty condition of the location, many dust orb particles were seen and captured as well.

After spending my time for almost 2 hours, I decided to take a rest so I entered one of the cell rooms in the jail to sit down and relax while I try to focus myself and try to feel the location atmosphere as well as try to sense any movement or spirits appearing. While I had my personal experience during my half an hour relaxation, I also felt tired since I have been walking non stop for the past 2 hours and I begin to feel a little sleepy as well. As time past’s, I realized it was time to go up and collect my video camera’s and call it a day. So I continued to walk up the stairs to the first floor to collect my equipment. As I reached there, I thanked the spirits for willing to aid in my investigation and also for appearing in front of the video camera. This I always say after my investigation is over, and during I off my video camera and collect them. It’s a courtesy to show respect to the spirits which has always been the main values and the motif of our Malaysian Paranormal Research club, that is to respect spirits and touch them with love and humility.

As I collected all my gear, I wished a final farewell to the spirits and the location itself  prior to stepping foot out of the Pudu Jail. As I stepped out of the haunted Pudu Jail, the atmosphere totally changed as the sad emotions I felt were all left behind in the Pudu Prison. The only priceless thing that I took with me from the investigation at Pudu Jail is the memories as I leave my footprint behind.

Another night has passed. The following day I head back to my Malaysian Paranormal Research headquarters and analyzed the findings and, after careful consideration, I concluded that I have captured a number of amazing spirit evidence in the form of video. A spirit in the form of black ecto apparition was captured appearing multiple times in front of the video camera that I set at the first floor Pudu Jail corridor.  Followed by a few spirit configuration in the form of vibrant supercharged orb in motion. As for the added bonus, I have also captured a spirit in the form of shadow anomaly as well.  Below are the entire research findings that were captured at the Haunted Pudu Jail. I am also proud to say that Malaysian Paranormal Research is the first ever team to document and capture the spirit activity in the form of video in the Pudu Jail. Armed with the latest technology as well to search for answers by applying proper standards and protocols.  As I end this week’s journal, may the light of truth shine upon your spiritual journey and your quest in seeking for truth. AND I’m Arwin John signing off from Malaysian Paranormal Research HQ.  Enjoy the ghost evidence video’s below. Till next time….

Comments Comments Off on Pudu Jail Paranormal Research By Malaysian Paranormal Research

Among the questions I often get asked is how to determine what is the actual communication coming through the ghost box and what is just radio noise.  This question seems to be the most popular question often asked by many and yet I have found any proper article’s related on the topic that is substantive and credible enough.  Therefor, I’m writing this article and hoping it will aid you and help you in determining to decode the communication that comes from a ghost box and not radio noise.

Firstly, let me consider the basic 3 types of things you will face while conducting a ghost box session.

1.) Broadcast fragments  – Firstly, the communication from the other side is not only present but represent sentence
attempting to communicate verbally with the living. But often times you will hear the fragments of radio station bleeding
through and you will mostly hear sound of signing, songs and much more even representing weather news report as well and other possibly stations based on which part of the country you live.

2.) Single words – In order to determine the single words that you get from a ghost box, you need to determine a meaningful communication.

For example : You have to ask a question and your response should correspond with your question, and not by simply saying every single word that pops out from the ghost box as the spirit voice due to no backup to correlate the data that represent the answer according to your question.

Below is a credible and valid ghost box session:         

For example :

Investigator : Do you know what is my name ?

Ghost box : Arwin

Investigator : Are you still there ?

Ghost Box : Yes

Above is a example of real time direct response. Meaningful communication can lend and back you up with lot of credence to a single word communication when they extend past single responses. It’s a call and response type of communication and these are considered among the best communications that we receive. Though the response is a single word, they happen to be direct answer and with direct answer, there is the evidence. Back and forth response presents even stronger evidence. There are also times, when a ghost box calls out names of the ghost box user as well other people’s that present during your investigation. They are in fact amazing and astounding. My name have been called out so many times and I am very used to it as I also use it as a tester to test the spirits if they know who I am and to valid the session by calling out my name as a approval.

Most of the times I conduct a solo investigation and there are also times when i have a friend following me to a location for investigation, their name is  also called out as well which happens almost all the time.

The name ” tech guy ” is also very intriguing.I have a gentleman by the name of ” Jack ” and gentlewomen by the name of ” Alice ” who has been with me since I started the ghost box communication and often aid me as a middle person facilitator to find someone I want to talk to or simply let me know of their presence that they are available to talk to. When you have personally used a ghost box long enough to hear a name is uttered repeatedly, in the same voice especially in several locations, then I consider that to be a evidence.

Simply putting the single word response as evidence of the ghost box communication cannot be presented as evidence unless you follow the protocols that I stated above to be put in place to judge if it has any meaning to it. Evidence should always be presented in context with the communication surrounding it or else it can’t be judged as something meaningful or as evidence.

Unfortunately, these means that all clips of ” Hi ” ” hello ” are to be necessarily pointed worthless, unless it says something like
Hi ( insert your name here ).

This strict protocol to one word communication value also rules out attention grabbing words like ” help “, “ghost “, or ” dead “. To ensure that these words have value, they must be heard first hand in real time and the investigator must make a attempt to implement them in a question to validate the words to get a another response which is to determine the validity. Without this follow up conversation and response from the ghost box, meaningful communication for single cannot occur and it must be ruled out as broadcast fragments.

3.) Foreign language

I do believe that others who are of all nationalities, there must be some that communicate with us who doesn’t speak English as a primary native language. Do consider that all thought it language. Everything around you is defined by language. Everything you see is defined by language and all thoughts are language as well. The universal language i would say. You think, feel and even dream in language.

4.) Broken language

If you received broken language communication such as ” Here voice Jack “, then it needs to be dismissed unless all of the words are spoken with the same tone of voice, otherwise it could simply be words forming a statement from several radio broadcast fragments.  But if all words are in the same voice tone, then it shows how a communication can be perceived by our ears as being syntactically wrong possibly due to etheric translation.

At times I am unable to define in the slightest, I will call and ehteric translator.

5.) Fragmented sentences

This is a very common type of communication and is easily dismissed as radio broadcast fragments. The problems of such sentence is that they are fragmented. There are uncountable posts on the ghost box forums and websites that consist of fragmented sentences that are nothing more than radio broadcasts.  One of the best ways to determine if the communication in question is a stray radio broadcast fragment is to examine the fragment itself.

Reason you conducted session with this set’s of question to validate your recordings.

– Is the voice cleared than other ghost box communications during the session ? Than it’s probably not a meaningful communication

– Did the fragment in question have anything to do with a question you had asked or any response you have heard real time ? if not, there its probably
not a meaningful communication.

– Does the fragment come across with the same pitch, tone and timbre from to beginning till the end ? There it is probably not a meaningful communication.

With that being said, there also times where meaningful communication is received through a fragmented sentence. Sometimes a voice in the middle of a communication, or only a few words come through.The more you practice, the more the ability is developed.  There could be possible psychical connection that exist between the communicator and the other-side, which therefor the fragmented communication is problematic. Because of the physical bridge that exist, there could be times with stronger and faster response rate than to slow response and fragmented communication.

Presenting Evidence Scientifically

Firstly, we can never able to present our evidence scientifically because there are too many uncontrollable variables, and the same communication can never be repeated or duplicated.

The least we can do when presenting the evidence is we should attempt to present it within the context and protocols. All communications that are valid, based on my personal experience tend to come in waves of communication the surrounding audio but is often missed. Presenting a word is worthless without surrounding context because it have the possibility of being considered as a broadcast fragment.

Conclusion : Evidence should be presented as meaningful communication following the sets of protocol’s within the context is the best evidence.
