  3. Hi UchuKeling. There’s one ‘tanah tumboh’ at my grandparents’ residence in Batu Niah. My grandpa had planned to remove it. The night before the renovation works were to commence, grandpa had a weird dream. An ancestor appeared in his dream warning him not to remove the ‘tanah tumboh’ otherwise the family wealth would be depleted. So, we decided to leave the ‘tanah tumboh’ alone. Oh yes, that area does have a lot of termites. =)
