Nini Muni

by Micha F. Lindemans
A horrible old witch in Indonesian mythology. She lives in Kaseteran, the Forest of Spirits. Visitors come to her for the Obat Hidup, the medicine that revives the dead and heals all wounds. Obtaining the medicine is difficult for she will threaten a visitor unless he brings her dishes of rice, roast chicken and sweet cakes, 77 of each. While she is eating she becomes younger and prettier, and demands that the man makes love to her. Only then will she give the Obat Hidup.
