Singing Spook..

If you are into karaokeing, do take heed whenever you feel like letting your hair down, alone or with the gang, at some karaoke joint.

Try not to be by yourself. Always have someone to keep you company, even if the person doesn't sing. A solo crooner in a darkened room is receipe for disaster, believe me.

It gave me the heebie jeebies when my daughter Ann related this tale over lunch today. Eeee, the hairs on my neck still prick....

Ann and her gang occasionally de-stress at karaoke lounges, if they don't bungee jump or parasail or scuba-dive, or do some other physically lasak activities, that is. 

She told the story of a friend's aunt who recently went singing with three friends at a well-known karaoke joint in town.

They decided to call it a day after a few hours and rang for the bill. To their annoyance, they were charged for five persons instead of four.

The management insisted there were five people in the group. They stood their ground and refused to pay for the extra person.

To prove their case, the management showed them CCTV footage of the room. There were indeed five people; the four friends and a long-haired woman dressed in white, sitting next to one of them with her head bowed, swaying from side to side to the beat of the music!

The four friends were spooked speechless. I think it will be quite a while before they pluck up enough courage to go there again, if ever. Talk about creepy karaoke ...

Hi Kama,

I just discovered your blog today! I have a cerita seram to share too. My mom recently went to Chiang Mai with a bunch of her Buddhist Association friends (I am Chinese by the way).

One of her tour mates' son loves to take pictures. You know how some people like to take pictures of their accommodation? Yup, the son fits that description. The minute he got his hotel's key, he dashed off and started snapping pictures of his room (I guess before anybody can mess up the room's pristine condition).

That night, when everybody settled in for dinner, he whipped out his camera to show his mom the pictures he took. Guess what? Much to their horror, the 1st picture of the room, revealed a lembaga putih with a face 'floating' on the bed. The 2nd picture showed the lembaga putih 'floating' around the TV/desk. The 3rd picture saw the lembaga putih 'walking into' the bathroom. The 4rd picture of the bathroom was just blank.

I must admit the kid had some guts. He was cool about it and he walked up to the receptionist and told the guy in charged that he wanted to change his room. When the receptionist asked the room number, the kid quoted it and guess what? The kid reported to his tour mates that the receptionist had a 'knowing' look and just changed the room and told the kid that the room is 'clean'. The kid didn't give a reason why he wanted to change to another room.

I guess, if you want to know if your room 'ada penghuni', you can test it out with the receptionist by asking if you can change the room. If they change it without questioning, then it's probably okay. If they change it for you, then you know...
