Central Market (Pasar Seni) in Kuala Lumpur
Mina was working as an assistant for a stall in Central Market in down town Kuala Lumpur. One day after work, Mina and Pam (who works at a nearby stall) were waiting at the eating stall for the downpour from the rain to stop. It was virtually impossible to catch the bus when it rains so heavily.
As they were sitting at the eating stall, Mina noticed a couple, with their back turned from them, were seated at the far end of the eating stall. The young teen couple, they had school uniforms on, were seated closed together. At the same time, Mina and Pam were busy chatting to each other and both were busy sms-ing from their mobile phones.
When finally the rain has slowed down, both Mina and Pam were tied-up packing their handbags and umbrellas when Mina realized that the couple were also leaving. When the couple turned and walk away Mina grasp something was not right as they seem to walking in a weird dreamlike posture.
Mina quickly glanced at the teen couple and was taken aback – the couple had no facial features – no eyes, no noses and no mouths – just blank spots on their faces! Mina nearly fell on her back as she unconsciously struggled to get away when Pam anxiously asked her what is wrong. Shocked, stunned and speechless Mina could only point to the teen couple who were leaving. However Pam could not see anything as the tables and chairs in the food court were empty. Finally Pam managed to calm Mina down and bring her home safely.
On reflection Mina thinks that it happened during Ghost Festival the young couple who was huddled together seemed like they were in love. She strongly believed that they are just lost souls and only want to live their brief previous lives together again.
