In this modern world, a lot of people may not believe in the existence of black magic. But, if you travel to villages or rural areas outside the hustle and bustle of the city, you’d probably come across (or at least heard of) a few minority groups that still practise witchcraft up ’til the present day.
Shockingly enough, this self-proclaimed clairvoyant has been active in the world of witchcraft in her home country of Singapore. This lady reportedly earns over S$70,000 (RM 216,906) a month just by casting spells, reading tarot cards, selling haunted dolls and making genitalia-shaped candles!
Meet Bambi Leong, also known by her nickname DarkWitchBambi. She owns The Love Witch shop (located in Sim Lim Square electronics mall) which stores a collection of books of spells such as talking to the dead as well as cursing the living. It was also reported that Bambi also provides an endless list of spiritual and sex-positive services.
Not only that, it is also said that Bambi’s lifelike dolls are made with the help of a man who is related to the American couple where “The Conjuring” movies were based on. She owns more than 100 dolls, some of which are displayed in the room and kept well-groomed. To quote the clairvoyant herself, the dolls are hereditary properties from her clients’ grandparents.
As for her clients, Bambi stated that most of them are female. It’s also said that the main problem that most of her clients face revolves around their love life. When casting love spells, Leong will carve their target’s name and birthdate into a candle, then smear it with one of her special oils. Red candles ignite desire; black candles are for curses.
In an interview with Asia One back in March, Bambi also shared that her first experience of seeing unseen objects was when she was little; at the age of two to be exact. Once, while playing hide and seek with her cousin, both of them noticed a “smoky presence with eyes” watching them from the corner of the ceiling.
When Bambi informed about her paranormal “encounters” to her mom and grandmother, they easily accepted her stories and revealed to her that they also had similar experience. On the other hand, Bambi’s dad (who’s already divorced from her mom) had called “these hallucinations” a load of hogwash.
For those who are curious, Bambi began getting more serious in her “supernatural” job in 2019. She left her job as an English tuition teacher, as it “didn’t feel right”. After quitting her job, she started offering tarot card reading services on Carousell, the first step that helped her find her calling.
Although her business has been met with tons of positive feedback from clients, Bambi also admitted that there are a few people who, to date, still question the services offered. “(Some) people don’t take me seriously when I tell them what I do,” she was quoted as saying.
The 28-year-old also recounted the time where a guy had hit on her at the bar, before contemptuously ridiculing her after she told him what her profession was. To this, Bambi commented, “(Those nonbelievers) can be quite rude sometimes.”
Instead of trying to argue, Bambi said that she just lets these nasty comments slide and opts to focus on those that support her and her works. “If someone doesn’t believe [in magic], then they won’t believe. Honestly, just f**k off lah!” she said in the chat.
