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.

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.
