A Lot More Things That Go Bump In The Night ...

This will be my third installment of supernatural stories. For those of you who are freaked out by ghost stories, (you know who you are ... LOL!) please be warned before hand and don't read any further if you're reading this at night ... hehehe ...

I've done two installments of my personal experience with the supernatural before. One was about something that happened to me personally, the second was something that happened to me and my buddy the Genie King and this one is about something that happened to me, the Genie King and our other good buddy.

This happened quite a few years ago, we were all still single back then (if I'm not mistaken). The three of us together with a few other went for a holiday in Port Dickson (a local favourite seaside town). We rented this bungalow with a swimming pool and all attached to it (yeah, I know I said by the sea, so why the swimming pool, but it was a nice touch). It was a nice old bungalow, surrounded by vegetation and situated about 2-3 minutes away from the beach. Totally isolated from anyone else. Great spot for a nice getaway.

We rented the bungalow for a bout 2 nights and 3 days and we brought our own food supplies and stuff cos we didn't want to have to leave the comfort of our nice secluded bungalow to go and find food, besides my two good buddies are great cooks and they were going to handle the meals. I was the driver who drove us all there. I used to love driving everywhere those days and I kinda became the self designated driver for our hang out sessions ... LOL!

Ok, let me not stray too much away from the topic here. So,we settled in and started enjoying ourselves at this bungalow, we decided that we just wanted to hang around by the pool and forget about the beach. We reached there in the morning and around noon, The Genie King aka Adrian's brother and family dropped by with their two twin boys to join us for awhile seeing as how they were around the area as well. We convinced them to stay overnight and they agreed, the more the merrier and those two twin boys were pretty adorable too :)

At first, we never even considered the place to be spooky or anything. Let me be honest, the three of us are plain cowards (that's probably why we're best friends) We stayed out in the pool almost all day even until midnight (of cos we did come out and eat and stuff, then jumped back right in again after that). By around midnight, Adrian's family and the boys retired for the night, but me, Adrian and our other buddy decided to still hang around the pool. It was close to midnight but we didn't realize it then.

Ok, bear with me here, cos I can't 100% recall this experience, it was a long time ago. Around this time, our other buddy said he felt kind weird, like something was watching us (remember, we were in this bungalow in the middle of dense vegetation and secondary jungle with no other neighbours anywhere nearby) . Being the cowards that we were and after looking around the dark jungle and dimly lit pool, we decided that it was time to call it a day. So we all jumped out, took our baths and headed to our rooms to get some sleep. The three of us shared one room with 3 single beds. Adrian's family took the other room.

We were still not sleepy yet cos we have this policy that we try not to sleep too much and too soon on holidays, make the best of it and all that. There we were in bed chit chatting when we kinda heard sounds from outside our window. We looked at each other and dismissed it as some stray dog or cat or something. But the sound kinda kept on going on and off. Now this is where we started freaking out a little. Then all of a sudden, the bed I was in started to move away a little. I'm freaking out by this point and like some superhero, you should have seen me jumping from my bed right on the my other buddy's bed ... LOL! The moving bed that I was on stop moving already, and it definitely did move cos it was much further than it's original position.

At this point we were all freaked out and we joined the two remaining single beds and all of crowded together on it all night long (not a nice picture, 3 grown men all cuddled up together on 2 joined single beds ... LOL!). I don't know about my two buddies but I hardly slept a wink all night and thankfully nothing else happened. And as much as I'd like to think that it was a prank played by one of my two buddies (which is not above them I tell you ... hehehe) but I know that bed moved and I know it would have been slightly impossible for either one of them to have moved the bed cos the beds were quite far apart. Besides, Adrian's nephews who were still little kids back then said they saw someone or something in the house earlier but no one believed them cos you know how kids see all kinds of things. And after what happened I'm inclined to believe they saw some ghostly image in the house!

We did stay one more night there (and yes, we did huddle together in one joined up bed again all night long ... LOL!) and thankfully nothing else weird happened, no more noise, no more ghostly images seen, no more beds moving. Besides that freaky experience, it was an eventful holiday :) And buddy, we should plan for one more of these holidays again soon but lets make sure the damn place is not haunted ... LOL! Happy weekend folks.

  13. Wow, that's an awesome but scary experience at the same time! Thank goodness non of you guys started screaming and float on the bed (like what happened in The Exorcist!!)

    Oh by the way, what's wrong with sharing beds together for guys? We girls do that quite often too. :P

  14. Talk about ghost stories during a vacation, boy there was this one time when I was very young maybe around 9 or 10 years old then, my mom, sis & husband and me, we had a trip to Maxwell Hill (Taiping). We stayed there for two days.

    The place was pretty neat during the day but when night came it was a different story all together. Unfortunate for my sis, she was possessed by some evil thing that night and that really freaked us all.

    And that was the last we ever went there, never to return.

  19. Gypsy, we did indeed have a good time, but I could have done without the scary intrusions .. LOL!

    And screaming out in the middle of the night would have definitely ruined our macho manly image! LOL!

  22. My hubs every told me his experience while serving his national service. They are drop dead tired after a few days out camp training when they return to bunk, so tired that everyone dozed off. Suddenly, he was awaken up a loud marching sound at the basketball court. He get up n see a lot of soldiers in japanese outfit marching outside. He din give a second thought to it n went back to sleep think that platoon must be crazy to be marching so late. They next morning he woke up & re-cap the incident, its really so scary, he told me... my hair standing...
