This incident involves a traditional believe and premonition as I was told later. It happened during the prelude to Gawai Dayak Festival or Harvest Festival. Let me explain a little bit about Gawai. In olden days, we Iban / Dayak depend on rice cultivation for living other than hunting and gathering. To appeased or to thank the Gods for a bountiful harvest, we celebrate Hari Gawai (which is also a public holiday in Sarawak). In modern days, we look forward for the Gawai Dayak as most Iban / Dayak who are working in the city or studying, return to their long house or kampung more or less like the Chinese or Malays do during the Chinese Lunar New Year or Hari Raya. As Gawai is celebrated on the 1st of June every year, we would make our journey back home to our kampung a few days before the celebration. Continue reading The Death Light »

For you info, I am skeptic when it comes to this topic. Not that I wish to bump to any of those thing in the near future and my mind finds it hard to digest the experience. But what I do believe in are spirits, life after dead as I am staunch protestant. Back to the topic, part of my believe says that your mind / eyes are playing tricks on you, the other part of it says ‘you just want attention of sort’. I m not undermining the people who actully saw it, but as logical person it is hard for me to believe it. It may happen to people who are actually weak inside. I am an Iban from sarawak, believe me, my community had tons of stories which is spooky. Continue reading 2 Spooky Exprience of Mine »

Haunted Places in Australia

March 6th, 2013

We’ve previously covered Haunted Places in Malaysia and Haunted Places in Singapore. And now, we are about to explore a little bit further into Australia, the land of the down under. Be ready to be spooked out by some of these locations

The Alkimos, Western Australia
The Alkimos is from the beginning haunted after the death of numerous welders who were sealed between the hulls on the first day of construction. Bizarre happenings and eerie apparitions plagued the vessel for years after that and even when it is finally ship wrecked off the coast of Perth, the ghosts there did not give up. Built in 1943, the ship finally was sold as scrap. Not only were the wreck’s salvagers too terrified by the haunting to continue their operation, all 8 buyers of the wreck claimed an inexplicable run of bad luck until they sold it away. There were reports of footsteps head on ladders and following the salvage workers at night, cooking smells and noses from the galley and tools being moved around. With vanishing divers, even the horses refuse to pass the wreck on the beach.

National Film and Sound Archive, Australia Capital Territory
The National Film and Sound Archive did not used to be a nice archive like it was now and was previously the National Institute for Anatomy where human bodies were sliced and diced. The archive is said to house a few raucous souls who likes to be seen and heard. There were reports of people being pushed up against the walls and feel like they were being choked. There was also a spirit of a Lady who stands on one of the balconies in the present Library and watches on. Continue reading Haunted Places in Australia »
