Baby “Cream’ haunts dreams, refuses to sour

Baby “Cream’ haunts dreams, refuses to sour | Thaiger

VILLAGERS in Nakhon Ratchasima are queueing up to place toys in front of the corpse of a nine-month-old baby on display in a local temple.

They say the body of Suphansa Lilaphamonkit, known as “Nong Cream”, has miraculously failed to rot, despite the baby dying four years ago.

Nong Cream was born on July 11, 2006, but died on April 19 the following year.

Her body is being kept in a glass cabinet at Wat Nong Khwang in Village 5 of Wankatha subdistrict in Nakhon Ratchasima province.

The province is located in Northeast Thailand (Isarn).

The small structure housing Nong Cream’s cabinet is full of colorful baby clothes, food, dolls and other items suitable for a baby girl.

Villagers told a Khao Sod reporter that it was said Nong Cream often entered the dreams of those who paid their respects to her, bringing them good luck.

Nong Cream reportedly told one villager in a dream that her body would last five years, leaving locals rushing to visit her body before it disappears.

One person reportedly won the lottery three times in a row after such a visit.

After Nong Cream died, some of her relatives, who were of Chinese descent, wanted to bury her in a Chinese cemetery, while others wanted to cremate her at a temple.

As a compromise, they agreed to ask the abbot of Wat Nong Khwang if the baby’s body could be buried behind the temple’s crematorium.

Soon afterwards, Nong Cream appeared to her grandfather in a dream, saying she was drowning in a flood and could not breathe.

The family rushed to the temple and consulted with the abbot.

They dug Nong Cream’s body up and found that amazingly the corpse had not rotted at all.

Her cheeks were still rosy and her body still looked healthy.

After the miracle, they built a little pink house in which to keep Nong Cream’s body for the temple ceremony. She remains there today.
