Grandma’s tale of horror story

November 27th, 2006

My great grandma passed away at the age of 96 years old. That, was about 5 – 6 years ago. By now, if she was still alive, she would be celebrating her 100th ++ birthday. I remember back then when I was still young, I used to be a very mischevious kid always curious to know more about ghosts. But because it was a very “pantang” (taboo) thing to talk about in our culture, she never told me a single story. Instead, she would cast a angry look to scare me into keeping quiet. It never really work because I always ask her again the next time. Its funny thinking back that I’ve always loved to hear ghost stories.

It was not until one day she finally gave up. She told me that old ladies or perhaps old people had the ability to see ghosts. It was something she realized when she reached her 60 something year old. At that time, being young, I was horrified and swore not to reach 60, just in case. She only managed to share with me 2 stories, one which I forgot and didn’t understand due to the language barrier she and I shared (she spoke cantonese and at that time, I could only understand very little of it) and the other, well, this was what she experienced.

Hotels in Malacca haunted?

November 24th, 2006

Recently, Melon, his girlfriend, Cream, Sunny Boy & Jane went for holidays at Malacca. After some thought of the many array of choices of hotels in Malacca, they decided at a posh hotel which would be an easy access to the town center by walking distance. Equatorial Hotel was their choice of option. After checking into their own individual rooms at this hotel in Malacca, Melon & Cream with luck got a room with balcony whereas Sunny Boy & Jane had a room without a balcony.

Throughout Melon & Cream’s stay at Equatorial Hotel, Cream did not hear or see anything wrong although it was often she felt that the room sometimes creeped her. As for Sunny Boy & Jane, they enjoyed their holiday so much that they extended their stay there.

Reincarnated Souls

November 21st, 2006

Chinese believed that one does not know when they pass away until the 7th day that they wonder around the earth. By the 7th day before crossing to the other realm, the deceased would visit their loved ones for the last time. On that day, the living loved ones would prepare the deceased favourite dishes, set on the tables. They would also retire to bed early for fear that if their loved one’s spirit were to try coming back, the living might accidently bum into the spirit or scare the spirit away.

Below are a series of reincarnated souls stories that I’ve collected from friends that have personally experienced something supernatural

1. Front Door banging
It was already late when I was walking upstairs towards my bedroom. According to beliefs and tradition, we were all suppose to go to bed early so my just deceased grandfather in law could come back and visit us for the last time. My husband was already fast asleep, as soon as I reached the door knob to my bedroom, I suddenly heard someone banging the main door of my house. Frankly, I was kind of surprised because everyone was already fast asleep or perhaps pretending to be fast asleep. Perhaps I was hearing things because it had been a tiring day. All the cooking and preparing dishes kept me busy the whole day. Then, the banging came again. This time, I was sure of the noise. I walked down the flight of stairs towards the ground floor when I saw my maid coming out from her room.
