An Kara OK Incident
Ms Fong is my Taiwanese
friend. She is a frequent Kara OK visitor and she likes to spend her time with
a group of her friends in Kara OK lounge during her free time at time until
late into the night; or pretty early in the morning.
She told me her own very
This was one such time again that my gang and I decided to book our
private Kara OK room in a well known Kara OK longue in Taipei. We started at
8pm but we sang as many songs as we could and soon it was 1am and we decided to

So I picked up the microphone and start singing until I came to a lyric “…
you didn’t see me, for I was hiding in the corner… (…你沒發現我,躲在角落…)”
Somehow I thought the player must be jammed so that the lyric “you didn’t
see me, for I was hiding in the corner” kept repeating nonstop until I was

According to the waiter, this was not the first complaint he received in
one month’s time. It was strange enough, only this specific song ‘say love you’
and at this particular lyric that the machine started to repeat itself.
Later as we were walking out of the Kara OK, the waiter told us that
there was a murder case happened in the same room that we were using a few

was only discovered a few days later by a cleaner after customers had complaint
about foul smell.
People believed that it was the working of this girl’s spirit to remind
visitors that she was hiding in the corner and hence repeating the lyric “you
didn’t see me, for I was hiding in the corner…”
