G.H.O.S.T

It's the time of the year again ~ The 7th Month aka Hungry Ghost Festival. Let's talk about Ghost. Have you ever experienced Seeing Ghost mistaken someone as ghost or vice versa (being mistaken as ghost)?

One of the most hilarious moment I had was an incident that occur several years back during my undergraduate time. During those days, I used to play squash with my coursemates cum friends late at night (around midnight). That was a good way for medical undergraduates to release stress & exercise oneself after studying for hours. One late night, after the strenuous squash session, I went back to our hostel rooms together with my other 2 friends. We stayed at the 4th floor and the staircase fluorescent lamps were not working . Although walking in the almost total darkness , we still manage to find our way up (with the help from the moonlight) . Suddenly we noticed 3 white figures standing still at the 3rd floor. I was "in shock" for seconds, thinking of seeing the uninvited guests !! Ahem... Guess what? Those 3 white figures were not ghosts but 3 ladies in white from head to toes (the white clothing Muslim used for their prayers). My goodness... Apparently I was not the only one who mistakened them as ghosts earlier on. Mytwo other friends who walked next to me also shared the similar thinking :P

Another incident was my coursemate cum friend cheekily told me he thought he saw ghost but later he noticed it was me !! Kkkkkkkk... I know he was just pulling my legs. That was the night (during my undergraduate days too) whereby I didn't expect to stay back till so early late in hospital. Earlier on we thought the surgery we wanted to observe will finish before midnight, but who knows.. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the surgery started late, and hence finished late, till 5 am in the early morning. By that time, the medical faculty gate was locked and the guard was no where to be seen (?sleeping). And poor me, coz I left my helmet and jacket inside the locker room in the faculty!!! Bawl :( So, either I rode my motorbike back to the hostel without the helmet or I stayed back inside the ward/hospital till the next morning (it was COLD and I was shivering !!). The hostel was located quite far away from the hospital/medical faculty - it takes 30 minutes to reach the destination if walking with fast pace. All my other friends (who came by car or by bike) had left by then.

After struggling for a while, I decided to ride my bike back to the hostel without helmet. Since I didn't have my jacket with me and it was cold, so I wore my clinical white coat. Since I unbuckled the front buttons of my white coat, U can imagine my white clinical coat flying slightly in the air when I rode my motorbike on the main road from GHKL to Jalan Pahang and back to my hostel (in Jalan Temerloh) in the early morning (5 am). Something similar as batman with the flying cape or cloak? Hahaha...

Do you have any stories to share? ;)

I've yet to experience any ghostly encounters.

Having said that.. in these day & age, I am more scared of "evil" aka bad people than ghosts.

jemima,
I have encountered few times before in the past, which I had described in my earlier posts. We will pray and cast out the devils in Jesus' name.

Yeah, in most instances, human with evil hearts/thoughts are more scary than the real ghosts.

lynnx,
Hahha, especially seeing them in the dark with insufficient light :D

nyonya,
Kkakakka... Reminds me of Super-Men. I cannot fly and I'm not powerful leh.. Abuthen, Super-Market also cannot fly hoh?

Chen said...

Ehon,
Most Sarawakians know how to ride motorbikes leh.. Especially those from Sarikei. I rode motorbike in KL during my fourth and fifth/final years as well as when I worked in Kuching in the late 90's. No money to buy cars mah at that time..

KFC u won't meet with a real one. Hehhehhe.. Anyway, He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world ;)

may,
Somehow, I observed that there is higher mortality rates in the hospital during this period of time.. It might be coincidental, but...

kok,
Riding on the motorbike to be exact ;) But there are minimal vehicles on the road since it's freaking 5 am in the early morning. Most people were still zzzz in bed :)

That will be much better than what we had during childhood, right?
We put whatever linen around ourself, pretend to be superman, and jump down from the top of cupboard.
Obviously riding a motorbike will be much more fun :P
