Rasanya tentu ramai yang pernah melihat kereta yang mengantung anak patung / teddy bear / soft toy yang bersaiz kecil di bawah bumper belakang kereta kan. Aku sudah beberapa kali melihat kereta yang buat macam tu. Mulanya ingat sebijik dua keretanya, tapi lama kelamaan aku tengok makin banyak pula kereta kat Malaysia ni gantung soft toy kat bawah bumper belakang kereta. Dah jadi tren ikut ikutan plak.

Pada mulanya aku ingat trend ni sesaje jer nak bagi nampak cute ke apa kan. Tapi bila baca penerangan di bawah, barulah aku tau. Rupa-rupanya trend ni datang dari Thailand dan ia berkaitan dengan perkara khurafat.


Mengapa Orang Meletakkan Anak Patung Bawah kereta ?

Sudah tentu sahabat-sahabat pernah melihat ada orang yang meletakkan anak patung di bawah bumper kereta...Sebenarnya meletakkan anak patung bawah kereta adalah budaya orang Thailand.Mereka percaya roh orang yang mati kemalangan akan berlegar-legar di tempat mereka mati. Bagi mengelakkan roh menganggu mereka yang memandu, terutama roh kanak-kanak, jadi mereka memasang anak patung pada bumper kereta,Supaya roh kanak-kanak tenang.Trend ini dibawa oleh pemandu teksi Thai yang mahu meletakkan roh lain (dengan meletak anak patung) supaya roh orang mati dilanggar tidak menganggu kereta mereka.


Driving around on the streets of Bangkok you might spot an interesting phenomenon, a car with a stuffed animal or doll dangling from the back of the car. Many of the hanging dolls are dirty and ragged from being dragged around on the city streets. There is something eerie and morbid about the sight of a child’s toy looking so disheveled.Taxi drivers seemed to be the first group to adopt this practice and it has since spread to the average motorist. Even on a short drive in Bangkok, you are bound to spot one of the hanging dolls. Taxis still comprise the largest number of cars that hang dolls on their bumpers.

The question that you are probably thinking is “Why?” For awhile I pondered this myself and although I asked around, no one else seemed to know either. Finally on the Thai news I got my answer.

The hanging doll or stuffed animal is an offering to the spirits of those that died in a traffic accident. It is hoped that the spirit will play with the toy and leave the car’s driver alone. This superstition is thought to have originated in Korea. Since Thai people believe that ghost hang around near the location of their death. They also believe that the ghost are waiting to be reborn and may provoke an accident by tricking a driver, especially at night. In light of such superstitious beliefs, it makes sense that some Thais would readily adopt a practice that seeks to placate these devious spirits.

Interestingly enough, the news report stated that many people have been adopting the practice of hanging a doll on their bumper without even knowing why. They simply saw others doing it and wished to do it as well. Other drivers get even more morbid and stick disturbingly real-looking fake arms out of their car trunks to shock fellow drivers.

Next time you take a drive through Bangkok, keep your eyes open for this quirky sight and we’ll see how long this trend lasts. - my350z.com/forum



(May 2007) A trend started around April of hanging a doll under the back of the car, to blow in the wind as they drive down the road. (I thought about hanging a long tiger tail from the bottom center of my bumper.) For awhile, I saw a lot of cars like this on the expressway going to/from the suburbs. Discussions in the Thai media, however, revealed the origin of this trend: Among taxi drivers, who tend to be even more superstitious than average Thais, if they accidentally killed someone (by the notoriously aggressive driving by some of them), they were afraid that the spirit of the deceased dwelled under their car, so they put the doll there to occupy the space with a different spirit, so there's no room for the deceased. Something like that... So the trend quickly disappeared! Except among taxi drivers. Don't stare too much when you pass them, and steer clear! - thailandguru.com
