Mysterious Footsteps at Hotel Gua Musang

January 2nd, 2007

Author’s Note : This story is told by a friend of mine who is now a mother to a boy. Last time, she used to work with a cigarrette company selling. Because of this job, often she has to travel outstation for adhoc projects. Here is one of the eeriest experience that she encountered. Til today, she still can’t figure out what happened.

This project took me and a few of my colleagues out to Kelantan, Gua Musang. At first look, I’ve never thought of the place as scary. With beautiful mountain sceneries and lush landscape, the air was cooling all the time even at the afternoon because of the trees surrounding the area. Me and my 3 other colleagues have always travelled together in a team and this time around, this particular function required people from other teams as well which includes boys. As young as I was, I loved to party til dawn and party was something I do at that time crazily.

This trip required me and my colleagues for 2 nights and in order to save up money, we stayed in this hotel which looked more like a wooden long house. All the other teams both from outstation and local (Kelantan) stayed there too. At first glance, I saw the place as authentic and it never crossed my mind that there was something more sinister in that place. Because the room could fit 4 people but there were only 2 beds, me and my other colleague offered to sleep on the floor for the first night. That night, after a long day’s work, we were all too tired and my other roommates were soon fast asleep.

Taman Desa Hospital Ghost Story

December 27th, 2006

Author’s Note : My friend met an accident a few years back and was hurt on his backbone. Because the injury sustained was quiet serious, he was forced to stay at the Taman Desa hospital, Kuala Lumpur.Doctors there advised him to stay in the bed for almost a year not allowing him to move around for fear might cause further damage. Within the one year he stayed at the Taman Desa hospital, he could hear mysterious noises and even see mysterious people appearing by his bedside. Here’s what he has to say :

People always say that hospital happens to be one of the most haunted places on earth. Most probably, its due to the number of deaths occured in one place more than anywhere. During the period I stayed in Taman Desa Hospital, I was haunted by mysterious noises and people. Actually, I never realized that there were ghosts lurking along the hospital corridors. Every night, I could hear children playing and laughing just outside the lobby the floor I stayed in but I did not suspect anything although it did occur to me before why weren’t the nurses bothered by the children who should be at bed in the late hours.

Origins of a Chinese Ghost Story

December 25th, 2006

Chinese has a saying and that we’ve always been told that, if you believed in ghosts, there will be. But if you don’t, then there will not be any.

Being a Chinese and living in a Chinese culture, I’ve always wondered why do Chinese, in particular, fear and respect ghosts. In certain ways, we take into the extent of putting joss sticks and setting up altars to worship our ancestors. Are these just culture passed on from generations to generations without any questions ask?

I recently found an interesting article which explains why the elders always tells us that they are what we believe.
