Clarifications on Ghostly Apparitions

Clarifications on Ghostly Apparitions

Have you wondered why someone, especially at nights, out of the corner of their eyes sees either a stationary back apparition lurking in a darken corner for a split second.

Some older people believe that these are ghostly apparitions which can be seen for a split second by normal people. These apparitions are people who have died and called “permanent” ghosts and they reside in specific houses, buildings, cemeteries etc. Or these apparitions can be just wandering ghosts going nowhere and everywhere. There are people who believe that wandering ghosts like to stay temporarily and live in abandoned houses or buildings.

 Lurking Shadows from Branches on a Tree

George, my cousin, have moved temporarily together with his wife, Hui Ping, to Puchong in Selangor. George recently retired and. However they found with the recent hikes have increased their cost of living.

They went to a small town in Perak to look out for the rental and food prices. They were having something for drinks and Hui Ping asked whether George noticed something unusual in their temporary house in Puchong. According to his wife she had seen flashes of a black apparition in their house.

George was a bit shocked to hear that as he had seen the same thing! George did not tell anyone including his wife about what he saw. There were many times while watching tv at nights when from the corner of his eyes he saw something in black with super speed flashing towards their storeroom. When he checked the storeroom there was nothing there.

His wife, Hui Peng was terrified about supernatural stuff and she refused to talk about it except unless they were on holidays (for from their Puchong home). In fact, Hui Peng had to turn all the lights on (including the bedroom) before she goes to sleep.

Wandering Ghost at Home

Wandering Ghost at Home

A housewife faced a spate of mysterious and impossible incidents in her home.

Wandering ghost (for lack of better term due my inexperience) can occur at any place or time. I have written a story in my other blog titled “Ghosts Everywhere!” with ghostly apparition occurring at a public place. Whereas this actual incident happened at a family’s home.

Hasmah lives with her husband and three kids in the sleepy town Yan in the state of Kedah, Malaysia. She has lived together with her family for more than 10years at their house. Life at their house was peaceful but uneventful.

 A Typical Malay House

One day Hasmah walked to her 14 year old son’s bedroom and was mildly surprised to see him there. He was on his bed scrawled in his back engrossed playing with his computer game. Hasmah asked about his tuition class and was told that the tuition teacher was sick and he said his father was also back.

Wondering what was going on, Hasmah walked to the living room at the front portion of their house. However there was nobody in there and just as she was about to call out to her son, she glanced at the window of her house.

Her husband was in the courtyard, facing outward squatting and tending a flower batch. This is most unusual, as her husband dislike this activity, thought Hasmah, as she walked down the short stairs from her living room.

My Granny’s Get-Well Present

My Granny’s Get-Well Present

I received my ex-granny’s get-well present….it took over 10 years to arrive.

According to Kirsten her relationship with her granny (her father’s mum) when she was growing up was normal. Granny stayed at one the back room of their house in Ipoh in Perak and would alternatively send to my aunty and her family house in Melaka.

There were no spectacular memories about her granny except the times when she and her brother got in trouble with her mother and they were thrashed using the slender-like cane (‘kena rotan’). They would run to the granny’s room for help. On seeing their predicament, granny would face her daughter-in-law with both legs firmly planted and with outstretch arms trying to protect her 2 young grandchildren. Granny would jump left and right purposely getting caned herself while rescuing the kids. (what a great & super granny)

There was also a recollection by Kirsten so long ago, both of them was so bored they decided to question their granny about the existence of God. She looked absolutely horrified besides she will be dead by then. The two kids kept pestering their granny until she finally reluctantly gave up and promised to do that.

As time pass by Granny went to her daughter’s family for a visit but fell ill and passed away. Kristen’s parents and brother rushed back for granny’s funeral. Kristen however was on a writing assignment and could not make it back in time.

Several years after that Kirsten had married and the couple moved to Johor Bahru in Johore.  One day, Kirsten was taken by her husband to a local hospital. She was diagnosed to have dengue and the hospital but they were told that the wards were already were jam-packed with patients.

They decided to go home where Kirsten could rest and hopefully get better. Kirsten’s husband called her parents to let them know of the condition of their daughter. Kirsten’s parents promptly arrived the next day to check on their daughter. They decided that if her condition does not improve the next day, they were going to take her other government hospitals or even private hospitals.
