Malaysian Ghost Stories 3

Malaysian Ghost Stories 3

Two more tales about the strange and mysterious world about the ghostly supernatural events in everyday life.

The first story is about Marcia Siew who stayed at residential enclave in the town of Kampar on Perak. Kampar is also the educational hub and home to Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARC).The name of Kampar was coined from the term “Kam Poh” which in Cantonese stands for precious gold.

Kampar suffered from the communist raids and the Japanese occupation of the Second WW2 and have a population of over 90,000 people.

Marcia Siew was lazily watching a love story movie show on the TV and it was around 3am. Her parents and her brother have retired for the night. After the movie was over she went over the kitchen to get a glass of water.

As she was drinking her water she noticed the neighbor dogs were busy yapping and yelping. She looked through the window from the kitchen but she did not see the dogs and she brushed aside without thinking. Turning away from the kitchen and from the corner of her eyes she saw something strange in their garden.

A Dark Isolated Road to Gua Musang

A Dark Isolated Road to Gua Musang

I have written in my blog about the little town of Gua Musang, about a “Tourist Guide in Gua Musang, Kelantan”. However a reader has also encountered a spine chilling experience about his car trip to Gua Musang.

Gua Musang is a small town and is sometimes called a railway town. I am also told that Gua Musang stands for “foxes cave“.

Haira lives with his sister, Ziana, and brother-in-law in Kota Bahru which is the capital city of Kelantan. Kota Bahru is approximately 110 km from the Gua Musang, where they are from originally. There was some celebration and the three of them was rushing and driving back to Gua Musang at night after work.

It was dark by the time they reached Gua Musang road when Hairi, who was seated at the back, was half dozing.  “Alomak!..” yelled Hairi’s brother-in-law as Hairi saw the motorbike way in front of them swerve and almost lost control of his motorbike. The biker then simply sped away at very high speed.

Ming Court Hotel at Port Dickson – Haunted?

Ming Court Hotel at Port Dickson – Haunted?

Ming Court Hotel was a popular beach resort during the 2000s. In fact, the hotel was the favourite haunt weekend resort for my wife and I – except some people consider it to be haunted!

Ming Court Hotel was located at Teluk Kemang in Port Dickson which was popular especially with the quick-getaway by the busy crowd from the Klang Valley. The nights after dinners at the lounge with the local and foreign singers with my wife sitting patiently (or impatiently) with cold mugs of beer for me!
Unfortunately the hotel was closed down somewhere between 2002 or 2003 probably due to the SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) epidemic and was taken over by the Corus Group.

The Abandoned Ming Court Hotel in Port Dickson

I did not see or felt any supernatural presence during our stay at the hotel. Probably I am not gifted with “yin yang” eyes which allow people to see or feel the existence of ghosts. However, a friend of mine, Ken, and his future wife, Ivy, had a truly terrifying experience in the then Ming Court Hotel.

After they have check-in to their room, Ivy went to the bathroom and Ken was busy unpacking. When Ivy got back from the bathroom she complained that the room smelt of second hand smoke. Both of them are strict and avid non-smokers. However, they did make too much of it and carried on with their activities.

Asian Tsunami

Asian Tsunami

It must be nearly a decade ago when I first read about the Asian tsunami that brought the devastating waves which swept certain regions across Asia. Stories poured from the media and the internet from eyewitnesses who actually saw or heard from the dead people of this truly tragic incident.

On that day, 26th of December 2004, thousands throughout Asia lost their lives when angry and furious waves swept the coastal region in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Malaysia etc. On that fateful day without warning over two hundred thousand lives were lost as huge tidal waves raced and trashed the coastal areas in the region.

In Malaysia, over 60 people lost their lives especially in the island of Penang and eye witnessed saw some disturbing apparitions.  Some people say that ghosts are not angry but merely confused and they cannot move to other world. They just wandered restlessly in this earth.

 In neighboring Thailand, especially in the Andaman coast, there are reports of tales about haunted beaches, liked people playing on the beach in the nights and of moaning and crying “people” when there was nobody there.

I heard this story from a friend who visited Thailand a few years ago. Rose Leong was with her husband for a holiday at a Thai beach resort.  When they check into the hotel they met with a young receptionist who was extremely friendly. A few days later Rose was told by the staff of the hotel that the young receptionist no longer works there.

Weird Incident at Mont’ Kiara Condo

Weird Incident at Mont’ Kiara Condo

Mont’ Kiara has been in the news recently about a Japanese couple who were found dead in their apartment.  There were some other mysterious gruesome deaths including a Singaporean in the areas.

For those who are not familiar with Klang Valley region, Mont’ Kiara is located at Sri Damansara area in Kuala Lumpur. It is a much higher price for their units (too much for me too!)  costing between RM2500 – RM6000 just for rental! With their swimming pools, gymnasiums and tennis courts it is simply luxurious living.

I have a retired ex-colleague, who lives in one of the condominium in Mont’ Kiara. Paul lives with his wife and his son on the 12 floor of their condo. One night Harry, Paul’s son, was out with his friends and his wife was busy chatting on the phone when the doorbell rang continuously at the front door.

Paul looked up to from his TV to find his wife gesturing angrily at him to look who is there. Paul got up reluctantly and looked into the peephole at the front door. The light facing the peephole must have fuse and he can only see an outline of a dark adult male but he cannot make out his features. His wife, Anna, who had finished her telephone conversation, walked beside Paul and asked who is it.
“Don’t know…the corridor light must be out,” as he partially open the front door with the latch or chain on. When he peered through the door in the dim light from the corridor, there was no one there. A bit puzzled, Paul unlock the latch and looked left and right at the dim lights of the corridor…and there was no one there.

Putrajaya Hospital – haunted?

Putrajaya Hospital – haunted?

There are allegations and purported sightings of unworldly apparitions circulating from the staff and even visitors in the ultra modern healthcare facilities of Putrajaya Hospital. The actual existence of ghosts, demons, ghouls and the undead, roaming the lonely nights in halls of this hospital.

The night shift-staff have seen and encountered numerous times of strange apparitions and spirits in selected wards in the hospital. Some nurses have heard people talking during late nights when there were no people around. It is reported that a man wearing a white “kopiah” (a Muslim skull cap) was wandering the corridor late at night and he would suddenly disappear.

The management of the hospital due to harassment from the staff and clients had resorted to hiring Darulssyifa (an Islamic religious consultant) to appease the spirits. Darulssyifa is led by Datuk Dr. Haron Din (a well-known PAS politician and the foremost expert in spiritual healing) in the supernatural cleansing ritual.
