Remembering My Aunty
“Tai Yee” or aunty is the eldest child of the 8 children from my maternal grandparents. She stayed in several places in places like Singapore and Malaysia during her life time. It was the unexpected and supernatural stories she told us before she passed away which surprised us.
Some of her unnatural incidents occurred when she was leaving at Thompson Road in Singapore. Tai Yee worked as a seamstress ( kindna tailor) together with an elder cousin during that time. She had rented a room at the back of an old bungalow, which she worked on the dresses and also to sleep.
One night when she was sleeping, she felt her entire body totally numbed (whether it was a medical condition or supernatural) and she couldn’t even open her eyes – as if something was on her entire body. Terrified she told herself to keep calm and just relax and breathe slowly….and she forced her eyelids to opened and OMG!...she saw a dark figure squatting on her chest with its face inches from her face. She squeezed her eyes down and she just prayed. After a long time, she felt the pressure on her body was slowly gone…and she opened her eyes…that figure was gone.
