The Locked Room

The Locked Room

Landlord rented to tenants with a locked room in memory of their dead son.

Roger Ling rented a shared bedroom with Anand in Sungai Petani in the state of Kedah. The master bedroom was rented to a married couple but the third room was locked. The uncle and aunty (Mr  & Mrs Lee)  told that room was securely locked and it was their dead son’s room. The tenants were told that room had many sweet memories for them and were warned that they under no circumstances would they be allow from going to that room.  

Mr & Mrs Lee also mentioned that their daughter has been persistent that they should stay with her. Their daughter argued that with them there it will be easier to look after them especially if they are sick.

Over the next few months nothing really happened except Roger and other tenants heard faint shuffling & squeaking sounds especially at nights. They thought it must be rats or some rodents in the house.

 One day Roger woke up in the late morning and as expected all tenants have left for work. As Roger is a student in a local college and that day he had afternoon classes. Roger went to the bathroom to brush his teeth and followed up with a quick shower.

As he was walking to his bedroom his mobile phone started to ring with his usual ring tone. He turned and looked down to mobile phone with the charger connected to it. The charger with its wires was there but the mobile phone was not there. Thinking he must have left the mobile phone in the bathroom, he rushed to the bathroom.

Typical Mobile Phone

As Roger was walking to the bathroom he suddenly realized the ring tones was coming in the side. He turned his head….the ring tones was coming from the locked bedroom!

Mere Coincidence

Mere Coincidence

Some of the people I met told me that they had faced scary and unnatural situations but instead decided to brush it off as only mere coincidence.

There are some on the other hand who claimed that they have visited haunted places and they did find anything and thereby concluded that ghosts do not exist. In any case here are two stories of people who said it was just “mere coincidence” of their incidents.

Karmila and her husband went to Hotel Equatorial in Melaka for a few days. Karmila had to attend a meeting and her husband was on holiday. On that particular day Kamila came back early while her husband was still sightseeing.

Bathroom Facilities in Hotel Equatorial in Melaka

As it was still early, Karmila took an afternoon nap and after that decided to go for a shower. After she was done, she was at the bathroom mirror when unexpected she the sound of her husband opening their hotel door.

She was slightly puzzled as she clearly remembered her husband said the tour was a full day. Karmila called out to her husband but did there was response. Hate it when they don’t answer, she wrapped her towel about her body and when looking for her husband. She went to the living room and there was nobody there, she even when to their bedroom…there was nobody there. Karmila thought the sound must be one of the customer’s opening their front door.

She went to the bathroom and was vigorously rubbing her hair when she looked down the towel and noticed a pair of feet! She jumped backwards on impulse to get away and saw ….nothing.
Karmila claimed that it was just her imagination but ….

 The other story is about Mrs Yam who spent almost 2 months after the birth of her grandchild. Mrs Yam being a traditional woman insisted of cooking for her daughter-in-law during the confinement period.

What The Heck!

What The Heck!
“What The Heck!” startled she let out a short muffled scream as she quickly jumped back ….

Toni is a somewhat tom-boyish girl of 23 had a job interview in Termeloh in Pahang. The town is located in the central portion of the state and is second largest after the state capital Kuantan.
Toni’s mother had contacted her cousin, Mrs Tee, and luckily managed to persuade her cousin to let her daughter to stay with them for a couple of days.

Toni met up his Mrs Tee together with her husband and two sons. They lived in the outskirt of Temerloh town in a partially concrete and wooden house. She was given a back room that was that was behind the kitchen. Mrs Tee explained that they have to clear up that tiny room which was originally used as a store for the family.

That night Toni was extremely tired for having taken a bus trip from her hometown. As she was about to fall asleep she notice that the air in that room was strangely getting cooler. She wrapped her make-shift blanket around her body and she was so tired she just slept.

Toni went for her job interview and she was back at the Tee’s house. She found the family extremely friendly especially aunty Tee. That night after she got to bed, she awoke to a very strong smell of Tiger Balm medication. Looking at her watch which shows 2 am, she wondered whether everyone were alright.

Deceased Loved Ones

Deceased Loved Ones

I have heard numerous stories of people’s ghostly encounters in graveyards, hospitals, or even in shopping malls.

A Tombstone of a Piano in a local Memorial Park

However its actually touching that some spirits seemed to “relive” their whole existence just being closed to someone for the rest of lives. At times, they seem to spend their whole life of their natural or unnatural lives with their hosts until the hosts die. Let me relate to you of two similar stories that I have personally encountered.

1st Story
I am especially close to a young girl, Kelly (at that time) when she finally married with a great guy and together they stayed with the Jay’s parents. The courtship lasted over 10 years and throughout that time together they faced tough times like when the young man lost his only and younger brother from illness and the time Kelly had a miscarriage of their first child but of course to much happier times together.

One day, a close friend Jay who was working in Singapore came back to KL and looking for a permanent place to stay. Jay’s close friend also invited a famous medium from Singapore to have a look at his apartment. Jay and Kelly were equally excited as they were trying to buy a neighbor’s unit and merge their 2 units together.

When they finally reached the ‘2’ apartments, the medium was busy looking at all the nooks and crannies and were generally satisfied except for some minor renovations that he wanted. After the visit to their apartments, they went to an eating place near the budget hotel room that they rented a room for the medium (there is a belief that allow the mediums can only accept Spartan or frugal gifts).

While eating, the medium casually said….”looks like you got 2 regulars ghost spirts in your house …a young boy and a baby spirit!” Kelly and Jay were completely shocked (as only their closest family members were aware……Jay’s younger brother died in parents apartment and the baby ghost can only refer to Kelly’s miscarriage a few years back!!!
