She also said that through their conversation, the man found the ‘bank notes’ on the ground, and kept it in his pocket for safe keeping for a whole month.

Nonetheless, it is obvious that the hell bank note could not be used for any transactions among the living and she had to explain to the customer that he cannot use the currency to pay for his stay.

The netizen also shared a video of the incident, where she can be heard telling him “tak boleh pakai” or “cannot be used”. She then asked him to show her the money again, just to confirm that they were indeed hell bank notes that were meant for the deceased.

In the post, she also also mentioned that it is her first time that she came across such an incident despite having worked at the hotel for several years. She added that this will hopefully be the last, as the Hungry Ghost Festival isn’t over, and this experience have frightened her.

Meanwhile, as Malaysia is a multi-racial country, it is common that people from different background to not understand the tradition of others. Hence, mistakenly taking the hell bank note as the real currency is a honest mistake.
