Kinamai (pronounced as Ki-na-mai) - is a noun of a tree stem that has been smoked to dry under fire heat over time. It turns to black. This is a tree stem with mythical belief that could cure fear or chased away ghost when it is burnt into ashes. This is sound very superstitious and merely based on belief - but for I've listen from the story of the elders all of them claimed that there is significant effect of using it until it comes to the point i have to believe it as well.

This is how it looks - the black color of the stem because it has been smoked on everyday heat over time.

The used of Kinamai used as in when a baby cry very often or fear of something. Then the Kinamai is burnt because they belief the smoke will chase away ghost spirit.
