Unexplained Random Hauntings
These are just only 2 random tales by readers of the many mysterious unexplained ghostly hauntings in Malaysia.
A Haunted House?
I think it is not right to categorized buildings which are unkempt derelict houses, old schools, hospitals etc. as being haunted just by their physical appearances. Whether these are demonic entities, pontianaks or simply just wandering ghosts which can roam anywhere as opposed to residential ghosts. Residential ghosts have a special affinity or very strong attachment (whether good or bad) in that place. Anyway to cut to the chase, I have 2 unexplainable eerie stories of people who are living in absolutely normal looking houses.
19 year old Rina was studying at an outstation college and her exams were over. Her family hometown is in Jerantut in the state of Pahang. She had homemade gifts from her entire family, as for youngest brother, 6 year old Hafiz, which had a hand painted face mask of Ronald McDonald.
The famous Clown from McDonald’s
One night, Rina was washing the dishes after dinner and the rest of the family had adjourned to living room to watch a TV program. Rina was facing the sink which was just beside the kitchen wall with partially opened louvers. It was only 7pm then and the night was getting a bit dark except for the neighbor’s dim low-wattage night light which provided some illumination.
Rina involuntarily jumped backwards in shocked…..seeing a glimpse of something small moving beside outside of the kitchen louvres. Momentarily stunned she forced herself to peer at the small fuzzy shadow who was moving up & down behind past the window louvers. She was truly surprised to realize that it had darkish red hair with pale white face…..it was the Ronaldo McDonald’s face mask!!!
Rina straight away assumed that it was her Hafiz playing with his mask and rushed towards the back door. She wanted to warn her brother that their parents will most probably give him a beating if they found him playing outside at night. However despite looking high and low at the backyard beside the kitchen she could not see any sign of her younger brother.
Wary and tired she made her way to the front of her house … where she saw her family including Hafiz who was happily playing with his game boy. Rina marched directly at her brother and whispered angrily asking where he was and she saw him playing with mask.
Rina’s parents heard the outburst and look at each other in amazement then her mother said that Hazif did not go out to play in fact he was with them all along!
Betty, a young woman, tells of her personal experiences with the world of the paranormal. She lives with her husband, Bill Loh, her mother-in-law and their 2 small children. They reside in Kampar, an ex-mining and now a university town (UTAR) with a population of around 70,000 in the state of Perak.
One night when she was fast asleep she heard a child crying and thinking it must be one of their kids. She got up from their bed and when to put on her bedroom slippers and walked to the door, she felt a hand grabbing her ankle. Thinking it was her husband, she angrily kick off his hand…saying “Stop it..’ and turned around and glared at him.
The night was dark with only light streaming from the moonlight from their bedroom and it was too dark to see the black image which was lying flat up on the bedroom floor. Although the bedroom is dark she could barely make out the black image except for the white teeth but something was odd…it did not like Bill.
Betty casually looked at their bed and was terrified to see her husband sleeping ….she let out a hair-splitting scream and she jumped scrambling backwards. When she finally looked downwards the black figure was gone!
A few weeks later, her mother-in-law complained to Betty that she could smelt as if someone had recently been smoking. Betty realized the smell was coming from the back room of the house and together with her mother-in-law went to check it out. When the two ladies got to the unused back room (storage/spare bedroom) and opened the door, that room had a very unmistakably strong tangy tobacco smoke smell…. but who had been smoking? All the windows were securely closed and nobody in the family smoked!
