Haunted Thai Hotels

Haunted Thai Hotels

Thailand is reputed as the most haunted country especially her hotels.

The country to our north, Thailand, is according to many believers of the supernatural is filled with ghosts and/or “kong tau” (black magic). Stories about ghosts and the paranormal in hotels in Thailand are most frequent encounters compared to other places. Tales of hauntings at Asia Hotel (I have written in another blog), Holiday Inn, Baiyoke Sky Hotel, White Orchid Hotel, Holiday Inn etc. in Thailand.

White Orchid Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand

Guests in these hotels had encountered strange things like scratches on the body, noises or knocking late in the night, long hairs found in the dressing tables (when only guys are staying there) and some even saw a black apparition crouching on the bedroom ceiling!

Back to my ghostly tale in Thailand, Walter Teng works in Alor Setar in the northern state of Kedah. Walter would travel regularly to Thailand to meet up with his clients, in fact Walter would joke that he has been to all the major cities and towns in that country.

Old Morris Minor Car

Old Morris Minor Car

“….recognized the distinctive colour & the make of the old Morris Minor car but it suddenly sped off…. could it be haunted??”

Ariffin & Kim Meng are only best friends in school but are neighbours.  Kim Meng stays a just the street away Ariffin was always around that Kim Meng’s family considered him as part of the family. Kim Meng’s mother was always warm and caring and his siblings were a laugh a minute. The laughter and the tears together will last a lifetime.

As for Kim Meng’s father was a strict and quiet person and it would be great compliment if Ariffin got a ‘grunt’ as acknowledge from him. As for Kim  Meng’s father the pride and joy other than his immediate family is his car.  He drives a ‘vintage’ Morris Minor and without fail when he gets back home, he will wash his car.

Morris Minor

Over time Ariffin found a job and settled down in Kuala Lumpur.  On day Ariffin got a call from Kim Meng saying that his father has passed away. Kim Meng was a bit surprised that his childhood friend wanted to pay his respect to Kim Meng’s father with Kim Meng saying that it was unnecessary. Ariffin was adamant and he applied to take leave from his company and drove all the way back to their hometown.

After the funeral, it night time and Ariffin was driving back to Kuala Lumpur. He noticed there was a “old” car in front of him …. it was the Morris Minor the exact model that & make Kim Meng’s father had.

Demonic Rage

Demonic Rage

“… her face was twisted in utter hatred ..”

Possession has been defined as a domination of by an evil demonic spirit. Demonic possessions occur in numerous incidents throughout in Malaysia as in other countries. These are generally done by exorcist who expel or cast off the demon, devil or ‘hantu’ from the affected victim. Other the word exorcist, in Malaysia, they are also known as Taoist or Buddhist master, sifu or bomoh etc.

A Girl Being Possessed

I remember many years ago, I was asked to go our factory in Shah Alam, Selangor. There was a disturbance there and my colleagues said and it was one of our factory workers. The factory worker had climbed almost to the top of a lanky tree and he was wildly waving his hand on a rather thin slim branch while shouting at us in a strange language.

Robert, the Quality manager, suggested that we should get a pastor from a nearby church which we readily agreed. The bewildered & somewhat scared pastor who despite his best effort got instead got urinated by the possessed worker. As the flustered pastor said, that it was better to get a bomoh who is more experience in these local situations.

Oops before I get carried away (probably due to old-aged) I should get back to my tale about a possessed woman.

Local Paranormal Experience

Local Paranormal Experience

“Where got ghost….went to Genting, Kellie’s Castle etc and nothing happen!”

Genting Highlands Reputed To Be One of the Haunted Places in the Country

I heard some experts say that most people cannot see a ghost except those people who are gifted or possessed with the “3rd eye” can see ghosts. Alternatively those people with low wan shou or  yun fei (spiritual level are low or down) can also see “dirty things” like ghosts.

Whether wondered about the people who are not only scared but simply horrified of the vision from the afterlife in their everyday lives. Here is another story about a guy who is a scaredy cat with anything connected to the supernatural or paranormal realms.

Wei Fatt and my brother are school friends in Johore Bahru before his whole family moved to Kajang in Selangor. Some of his friends knew about his reluctant ability to either, sense, hear or even see the dead but accepted it anyway.

One day Wei Fatt was asked by his boss to do and a Quality assessment at their factory at Pasir Gudang in Johor. The company booked a room for him at the New York hotel in Johore Bahru. It was late when Wei Fatt finally checked in the hotel and made his way to his hotel room.

As he noticed that as he walked nearer to the room, he heard soft sound of children giggling from one of the rooms. As he reached his door the giggling suddenly stopped. There was nothing there, no ghost but an over active imagination. As he was exhausted, he took a quick shower and he went to bed.

Sweet & Unexpected Goodbye, My Pet

Sweet & Unexpected Goodbye, My Pet

“....Fluffy is dead…but I just saw her”.

Dog at the Sliding Door

Pint sized Fluffy was a 5 year old mongrel has been a constant companion of Sasha. Fluffy will wait patiently at the window every day until Sasha is back from school. In fact I was told that whenever Sasha got back from school, the little dog will get into hilarious frenzy of leaping & spinning around Sasha in joy.

Sasha would go her room to do her homework and Fluffy would follow and rest on her cushion and would wait quietly for Sasha. They would take leisurely long evening walks together in the neighborhood. Sasha’s parents joked that they were like ‘twins’ and would go practically anywhere together.

 As time pass by Sasha went to a local college in the island state of Penang. Sasha’s parents were still working and Fluffy was left alone. One day an anxious neighbor made a call to Sasha’s mother to inform they found Fluffy’s dead body at one neighborhood road. It seems that it was a car accident …. It was a hit-run accident.

Sasha was having her college exams then and her parents’ decided to only tell her about the incident after her papers. The severe shock and grief might even traumatized her if she found that Fluffy was killed. One thing left to another by the time Sasha’s exam is over, Sasha’s parents felt that it may be better to tell personally about the tragic incident after Sasha is back home from college.

Creepy Front Door

Creepy Front Door
“…I always felt there is something mysterious or downright creepy about my front door!”
My wife and I decided to take a short and cheap trip to visit the town of Kamunting in the state of Perak, Malaysia (I definitely can’t afford an overseas trip..…). During our trip there, we met some old friends, Mr and Mrs Lai for dinner at a Chinese restaurant. We talked about everything and nothing, when we jumped to the topic about peoples’ strange experiences in their lives.

Suddenly Mrs Lai eagerly whispered, “….I always felt there is something mysterious or downright creepy about my front door!”  She then related her experiences when she and her husband moved into their present apartment after their marriage. They were just a young couple then with a baby daughter.
The Front Door of Mr & Mrs Lai’s Apartment

One day Mrs Lai got a call from her sister (Yee Cheh) saying that she is on the way to their apartment. They were yapping away and played with the baby when Mrs Lai decided it was time for the baby’s afternoon nap. Mrs Lai place her baby in the master room at the same time her sister took the opportunity to use the bathroom. After Mrs Lai’s sister was done she used the wash basin in the bathroom to wash her hands…when she heard someone knocking at the front door. Mrs Lai replied in a hoarsely low voice asking her sister to find what the person wants.

Probably grumbling, Mrs Lai’s sister thought it must be the neighbours or worse, some sales person trying to sell their stuff as she walk briskly towards the front door. As she nearly reached the front door… the heard the knocks on the front door again and she was knocked flat of her feet….the knocks came from the front door but it was coming INSIDE the door!

Mrs Lai’s sister was so terrified about that incident that she swore she will go back that apartment again!

There are numerous people who have encountered ‘helpful’ spiritual entities, or according to Christian terminology guardian angels or just supernatural guardians in their everyday normal lives. Countries as diverse like the United States to Malaysia have experience these strange incidents of so-called, “supernatural guardian”.

Existence of Supernatural Guardian?

Melanie Kee seemed to have born with a lucky star as her family always laughed and joke that a “fairy godmother” is looking after her. Melanie and her best friend, Kamila, moved to a flat in Batu Pahat in state of Johor.

One afternoon, Melanie was standing on a stool above the raised cabinet in the kitchen,  when she fell slipped backwards on the stool. As she struggled to maintain her balance to no avail at the exact moment she felt a pair of hands on her back holding her. When she regained her composure she turned to thank Kamila (the only one in the flat) but to her surprise that was no one around!

Later she found that Kamila was busy on her laptop in her bedroom… and there was no one around.
