Some of the locals in Pulau Ubin have taken to worshipping a Real
Haunted Barbie doll that occupies a shrine there.
At the shrine known as Lady Na Tuk
Kong Shrine", you will find a barbie doll occupying the place
on the altar usually reserved for the statue of a deity. Even
some of the offerings left on the shrines altar by worshippers are
different from the norm. There are creams, lotions, rouges, powders,
small mirrors and combs.
According to Literature and History
researcher Han Shanyuan (name transliterated), the story behind the
shrine begins with a German couple and their daughter.
The family cleared the land in the area to establish
a coffee plantation in Pulau Ubin at the beginning of the last century.

at war with Germany and the British viewed Germans as their enemies.
During that time, Germans who lived in British colonies were not only
unwelcome but were suspected tobe spies. Their properties were confiscated
One day in August 1914, the British army came for
the German couple and their daughter. The army caught the couple but
the girl managed to escape to the mountain behind her family's plantation.
Unfortunately, she fell from a cliff and died.
Locals then built the temple in order to pacify
the girl's spirit.
According to the temple's keeper, at first people
worshipped a porcelain altar instead of the Barbie doll. The porcelain
altar is believed to contain a lock of the girl's blond hair and a
crucifix that is said to be the one the girl was wearing when she
Three years ago, a local emigrant to Australia had
the same weird dream for three nights. In his dream, a western girl
led him to a shop. She then asked him to buy a Barbie doll and bring
it to the"Lady Na Tuk Gong Shrine".
The man followed the directions given with a grain
of salt. To his surprise, he found the shop and also the doll the
girl described in his dream.
He bought the doll and brought it back to Pulau
a lot of people come to the temple to worship the Barbie doll and
it is said their prayers for safety and health are answered. (Sin
