Our Mission

The main aim of The Malaysian Ghost Research  is to share the documentation through research about the existence of life after death. Our mission is to share information and/ or to help change the perception of peoples’ narrow view about this mysterious world, through scientific research methods using a digital camera, video and audio recording.

About Our Research

The Malaysian Ghost Research is the premier paranormal website online in Malaysia and our collection of non-dust ghost orbs, ecto, human shaped apparitional ghost photos, ghost videos and EVPs is the largest collection online. The collection mostly comes from the solo investigations by a  professional paranormal investigator and ghost researcher, and from our professional sub-team investigators based in Beluran, Sabah. The dust orb found on this site is only for comparison purposes.

My journey in the paranormal and ghost research as solo.


Basically I have the ability to see spirits of the dead since young; at one stage prior to getting involved in this field, I almost bumped into them daily that made me confused. Yet, at the same time my confusion had triggered off a feeling of deep curiosity towards the existence of spirits especially when I have seen the spirit of my wife’s mother and her aunt’s spirit prior to their demise.

Therefore, after the demise of my wife’s mother, I have begun to see more spirits that visited me prior to their demise. Hence, on the 12th Mac, 2004 after a week plus of the demise of my wife’s mother, I started searching information about ghosts over the net—and I was very lucky to have stumbled upon the International Ghost Hunters Society’s (IGHS) website that gave different views about ghosts. Since then, I started my paranormal and ghost research solo and continue my research based on the guidance of Dr. Dave Oester, the founder of the IGHS that led me to become an IGHS member on 9th September 2005.

My site was associated with the IGHS on 1st December 2005—as I still didn’t have a proper domain name. At that particular point in time, my research was still under the domain name of until  I registered with a first domain paranormal site in Malaysia dedicated to paranormal and ghost research on 25th October 2007, whereby I named it Malaysian Ghost Research and conducted paranormal and ghost research solo. I had enrolled myself into the IGHS paranormal and ghost research diploma courses which were diploma in Phase Displacement Practitioner (PDP), Certified Ghost Researcher (CGR), Certified Paranormal Investigator (CPI), Certified Electronic Voice Phenomena Researcher (CVPR), Certified Instructor (CI), Certified Paranormal Councellor (CPC) where which I completed all the courses in 2006 and 2007, as well as become Certified Reiki Master for my personal spiritual enhancement in 2008. 

Therefore, those basic courses not only had given me the scientific view about paranormal and ghost research, but they had become my paranormal and ghost research foundation into this field   At the beginning of my paranormal and ghost research, I conducted paranormal investigation and ghost research mostly at cemeteries, historical sites, school grounds, abandoned houses and in the jungle.

Nonetheless, my research discovered ghosts to be everywhere and anywhere—and they can present themselves anytime and at any moment.   Therefore, these days I conduct my research anywhere and anytime according to my will, whereby my research covers mainly paranormal events related to ghost activity—besides understanding better the existence of ghosts and the afterlife phenomena.  

My vision is to provide information and to share my research findings with those interested in knowing more about ghosts, because most of us tend to think that our friends or even ourselves should be avoided after we pass away, since we no longer exist. But, being a spirit is a new chapter to a new life. I always believe that the scientific methods of ghost research through camcorder, digital camera, film or even an audio recording can help us to understand ghosts better and how to handle our daily lives when we bump into them.
