Ghost Child At A Resort

Ghost Child At A Resort

Ghost child also referred to as “kuai qwai” in Cantonese or as “toyol” according to Malay folklore. Many real-life accounts have been told about the “kuai qwai” in Genting Highlands where some people have described as an unholy den of ghost children. On the other hand, “toyol” according popular beliefs is a mischievous ‘child’ that gathers and steals small items from people’s homes. However in this incident involves a lost child in a beach resort in Malaysia.

Adrian Raj went with his family for a vacation at Kemaman in the state of Terangganu. Kemaman with a pristine beach and seafront, seem to be an ideal location for vacationers. Adrian was busy outstation and unfortunately he did not make it in time for the trip in September. He nonetheless persuaded his wife to go their long awaited vacation in November, which is the beginning of monsoon season.

They rented a room for 5 days’ stay at the resort of a family owned business in Kemaman. One night, after their young son was fast asleep, Adrian’s wife was continuously complaining about their spoilt vacation. It was late at night when Adrian decided to have a smoke and went downstairs (his wife did not allowed him to smoke in the room).

He went downstairs to a back of a fairly large garden, slightly away from the main resort. It was extremely dark night but it was lighted up with florescent lights on poles around the garden and he can see fairly well. He was sitting on a bench and lit up his ciggy when the skies suddenly opened up and it poured. He ran to a nearby covered roof structure with only the steel clad columns exposed. It was raining pelting and raging heavily, with lightning flashing around the skies.

Adrian tried to call his wife that he was late due to the thunderstorm only to find he accidentally left his mobile in the room. He was looking around the surrounding, wondering whether he should make a quick dash to the resort, when he looked at the playground he suddenly noticed…..that a small figure was sitting on of the swing.

Never Look Directly At a Ghost

Never Look Directly At a Ghost

“……you can look up or down but never look directly at the face of a ghost!”

A lot of people have seen at one time or another, at the corner of their eyes, saw a flash of a shadowy figure…Huhh!..as they glanced at dark of the bottom of the stairs, the corner of the room etc. and when there is nothing there…they might think it is just a figment of their wild imagination.

However some people believe that unless a person is gifted with “yin yang” or the “3td eye”, most people will not “see” or even fell the presence of ghosts. Unless, for example, if a person is fast asleep and suddenly awoke, he or she might accidentally see the dead spirit. Like a woman medium said that it is ok to look to the left or to the right or even up and down but never look directly at the face of a ghost!

“Why cannot look one???” my friend asked but the medium stare angrily at him but did not answer. Maybe the answer can be found in another incident that a reader encountered when visited his friend in Melaka, Malaysia.

Amar and Jude were college mates and they were going to Jude’s place in Melaka for the holidays.  Amar was introduced to Jude’s parents, Mr and Mrs Tai, and to his younger sister, Katie. They had 3 bedrooms which were for Mr and Mrs Tai, another for Katie and the Jude’s room for the guys.
However Jude felt sick after a few days and were told by the doctor that its best to rest a few days. Obviously Amar could not sleep together with Jude and they decided it was too inconvenient to sleep in the small dining room. Instead Mr and Mrs Tai decided on the store room which was located downstairs just beside the kitchen.

On the first night at the downstairs room, Amar was busy checking his Facebook on his tablet when he heard a faint scratching sound on the window. He looked out to the window but the sound of scratching on the window has stopped. Jude looked out of the window and saw the dimly lilted lights from the lamp posts but nothing was there. Chuckling to himself silently saying that it is just his imagination, he must stop believing such nonsensical stuff.

The next night after he went to bed, he was lying on his side opposite the store window, he woke up when he heard sound of someone on the rocking chair. He pretended to be asleep and he turned his body in the opposite direction of the window…..he saw in the gloomy darkness…. a lady sitting on the rocking chair!
