Life tough as a security guard is tough especially in a field dominated by foreigner nationalities. Pak Idrus has retired from working at a Government department and to make ends meet with a wife and 5 children, has taken a job as a security guard for a local security company.

Pak Idrus was working at the night shift as a private security guard at a local manufacturing company. Part of his job requirements was to manually use a clock-in system at designated spot around the manufacturing plant. When one late night Idrus was walking the rounds with the clock-in system the plant he heard a whisper.
He looked around at the dimly lit surrounding in the warehouse section but there was no one round. Shaking his head thinking it was just his imagination, he walked to another section of the plant where he felt a sudden chill at the same time someone was blowing air into his ear. The next thing he remembered he again heard a whisper “Ooi” and he quickly looked around wondering if someone was playing pranks on him. There was absolutely no one around! He said some prayers and scooted from that place.
There was even a scarier incident at that plant about a year back. The entire perimeter of the plant was bordered by a small paved road and Idrus was making his rounds. The light posts which were well lighted and situated in the end of the narrow road and faced the plant. It had just rained and it was cold and it was windy as Idrus walked along on the narrow road.
A hyena-like laugh rang out in the night air and his short hairs on his arms and back of his necks stood up. “Siapa tu?” (translation – who’s that) as he wildly looked around. Trees were planted all round across and away from the narrow road. He yelled again and except from the loud wind there was no other sound. Frozen and rooted to the ground he wildly waved his torchlight to the trees. The wind was casting deep dark shadows on the trees when he saw a figure standing partially behind a tree. Idrus frightened he quickly pointed the torchlight at the figure but it was too dark with many moving shadows. He was just about to yell again to the figure when that image slowly drifted upwards!....and was gone.
