Supernatural Tales from Taiwan & Malaysia
Two stories about supernatural or paranormal experiences from both Taiwan & Malaysia. In Taiwan a youth claims his BFF (best friend forever) is a ghost. For Malaysia a young girl claims to talk with her with her deceased grandmother.
14 year old, Kenny is the only child and stays with his parents in the capital Taipei in Taiwan. His parents were having problems in their relationship and to add to that, Kenny has started mixing with the wrong crowd.
Desperate for a solution and as it was during school holidays, his parents decided that he should go Mrs Wu who lives in the small town in province of Yilan. Kenny’s mother is the sister of Mrs Wu who is widow and lives with her son Victor. Kenny who thinks that 12 year old Victor with thick glasses is a nerdy brat who proudly inform everyone that his best friend is a ghost!
One day Victor volunteered to pick up the prepared food for dinner from a lady as Mrs Wu had to the 2nd shift at work. As Kenny walked back to the apartment he noticed that the TV was loudly blaring away and he heard Victor was happily chatting by himself.
Putting the food away, a totally fed-up Kenny walked to the living room to confront Victor. When he reached the room, Victor was at side facing yapping with the TV facing directly. Kenny stopped absolutely shock ..the empty rocking chair beside Victor … was gently rocking away by itself!!!
Some people believe that some young children are more likely feel the presence of the paranormal or ghosts. I have also written of these experiences in my blog.
Mimi is the 4 year old daughter of Pete and Sharon living in Petaling Jaya in Malaysia. Pete is a full-time house husband and occasionally works as a travel consultant. Sharon works as a partner in the advertising industry.
One night when Pete was putting on pair of pajamas on Mimi with some difficulties as she seemed distracted looking intently at something on her bedroom. When Pete asked Mimi what she was looking at, she just shrugged.
That night, Sharon was as usual working late, Pete was tucking Mimi into her bed when she asked in a low voice, “Why Por-por (grandmother a term for her mother’s mother in Cantonese) called mummy with a funny name?”
Pete was slightly taken aback as Mimi was only born a year after Sharon’s mother passed away. In other words, Sharon’s mother passed away before Mimi was born but Pete thought it must from old photos of her grandmother.
Pete asked her what funny name that Por-por used on mummy and she hesitantly replied, “Char-lun” Pete was absolutely shocked when he heard the ‘name’ as Sharon’s mother was the sweetest woman but she was uneducated and can only understand Cantonese dialect. “Char-lun” in Cantonese means ‘car wheel’ when she refer to her daughter Sharon!!!
