Do Mind Your Language
In my position as a Feng Shui and magic hobbyist, I had many
opportunities to meet many estate agents and get much firsthand info on haunted
buildings and ghost stories; in the exchange of my free service of course.
Alice is one of the more talkative types and below is her
You know you really
must watch your comments when visiting old buildings.
One afternoon around
4pm, I brought a rich elderly couple to see a colonial style old building
facing sea. It was a large double story wood and brick building with banana
trees, wild ginger plants and ylang-ylang trees growing in the compound.
After I unlocked all
doors, I brief the couple a little concerning the building condition and the
proposed selling price and then let the couple to walk through the building.
The couple seemed to be quite interested in the building and they chatted
between each other on their proposed plans of the building… I could only stand
quietly listening to their conversations.
I can still remember
some of their conversations as I thought they were a little arrogant and
disrespectful of the building and the previous owner. You know how rich folks
are when coming to showing off their money matters. The gentleman started to
say that $1M is a little cheap and it would be a waste of time to renovate this
old building and they should demolish it and build a new one; the lady seconded
echoing the gentleman’s comment.
As the couple was
excited by own conversations, an old rocking chair started to rock at first
slowly and it gradually swigged more vigorously… Everyone thought it was only
the sea breeze. The lady at this time said something I think she shouldn’t: “I
will throw this old rocking chair away when I purchase this building.”
As soon as the last
sentence came out from the lady’s mouth, she felt weak and collapsed onto the
ground. What else? We hurriedly carried her back to the car as we thought that
the still air in the building must have caused the lady to faint.
We didn’t know any
first aid techniques then, what we could do was to sprinkle some water on her
face and gently slap her face to make her regain her consciousness. I guessed
the luck must be on our side as after a few minutes, the lady gained her
senses. The first sentence that came out from her mouth was: “I saw an old lady
in the rocking chair pointing her finger at me and scolding nonstop!”
