Summary/Description: In April 1973, a Lilliputian flying saucer landed in the playground of a primary school in Ipoh Perak. Several tiny humanoids in shiny white suits emerged but beat a hasty retreat when they saw a teacher approaching.

The previous year, a girl playing in rice fields in Rantau Panjang saw a miniature man marching through the furrows. He had long white hair and wore a white shirt with matching trousers. When she tried to catch him, he jumped down the nearest hole and vanished. A young boy chased a similar figure sporting a white shirt and purple trousers in the same neighbourhood. Again, the figure escaped down a hole.
