Miah Majid, 60 years old, found a 'face' on her pinang (or betel nut) tree in Kampung Paya, Kedah last week. The 'face' is imprinted on the frond of the tree. As word about the tree spread, streams of visitors have been flocking to the village to look at the tree, which stands at 7.25m. The image faces east.
“The frond will probably last another two weeks. By then it should shed naturally. So far, nobody has asked to keep the frond,” she added.Latest I heard was that people are trying to dig up the roots of the tree because they think that it might have some medicinal powers.
