The Secret Of 7th Floor
The local urban legend has
it that, some casino and hotel owners would set aside a room or a whole floor
for the ‘good brothers’ to stay in the hope to get the help and favor form
them; hence to improve their business…
An artist friend of mine whom
wanted to remain anonymous told me her personal scary ordeal from Genting
Highlands. For convenience, let’s just call her Jenny.
Jenny had an invitation to
perform in one of the hotels in Genting Highlands, as with any other show
appointments; she brought her manager along to take care of her busy schedules.
On arrival to the hotel and
upon checked in; her host told her room would be Room 1404. It is on the 14th
floor. Jenny was also told that under no circumstances she was to wonder about the
7th floor. Jenny recalled that after hearing the warning, her
curiosity rose and she tempted to press the lift button on the 7th
floor while going up to her room on the 14th floor.
True enough that the lift
door opened on the 7th floor, but Jenny only found the lift door
opened onto a brick wall. That is to say that the 7th floor is
sealed for public. No big deals Jenny thought and continued with her own
business and prepare for that night’s performance.
Jenny’s performance went
pretty well and the show finished right after 12 midnight. She staggered her
tired body to the lift lobby and pressed for the 14th floor to go
back to her room for changing. The lift somehow stopped on the 7th floor
and when the lift door opened to a lift lobby and without much hesitation,
Jenny stepped out from the lift thinking that the lift has brought her to the
After stepped out from the
lift, Jenny started to trace the room number: 701, 702, 703… only after that
Jenny realized that she has mistakenly gone onto the 7th floor. So,
she tried to go back to the lift lobby to wait for the lift.
It was strange that there was
no indicator light at the lift button. No matter how many times Jenny pressed
the button; no lift responded to the call. It must have been ages as told by
Jenny and she was almost panicked because she knew she was in a no man’s land
or even 4th dimension of some kind.
Although Jenny was a free
thinker, under such circumstances she has no choice but to kneel down in front
of the lift door and start praying: “Oh Buddha, oh God, oh Datuk; I am only
here to perform and will leave the next morning… Please forgive me if I have
It must be sometime after
Jenny’s prayer, the lift door suddenly opened and Jenny immediately crawled
into the lift and go back to the 14th floor; only to find her manager
was strolling in front of Jenny’s room restlessly after found Jenny was missing
for about two hours!
