For those who are often disturbed by spirits or scared of kena light gongtao. I would recommend getting a biagae..

BiaGae 挡降贝 (cowie shell, commonly filled with mercury and tarkut) is a special kind of amulet which is widely use to avoid and protect from Black Magic, evil forces, ghosts and spirits. Cowrie or cowry shell is a very beautiful shiny tropical sea shell, it is humped back sometimes decorated with spots like a leopard skin.

During ancient time in China, South East Asia and Africa, it was commonly used as coin or money. The Thai people called it BiaGae and used it instead as a talisman for protection. The arched back of cowrie is like a shield and therefore it is believe that it could bounce off evil energy, similar to tortoise shell was employed by FengShui master in China for warding off bad energy. Mercury was also filled inside the cowrie, takrut then placed at the gap of the cowrie, and sealed tightly with special ingredients preventing it from leakage. Sometimes, it will be tied around with strings and painted with lacquer.The wearer believes that he will be protected against: black magic, bad luck, evil forces and demons.
Love it Or hate it
