Myanmar – Children are threatened with Pashu Gaung Phyat, meaning Malayu Head hunter. In Burmese we used to call Malays with the name Pashu which may come from Bajau or Bugis. Even Peninsular Malaysia was called Pashu Peninsular. It is a common knowledge that some ethnic groups in Eastern Malaysia, Iban and Dayak were notorious headhunters.
