Taboo On Entering A Tunnel
It is an
unwritten urban taboo that whenever one drives through a tunnel at night, one
should keep his/her mouth shut. This is especially true for those who are
having bad lucks or sick. People believe that there are many spirits wondering
about the tunnel and if anyone say things they shouldn’t have spoken; these
good brothers and sisters will possess the unlucky ones.
folks must know that there is a tunnel near Green Lane that is pretty much
haunted as there were many serious car accidents that happened during the
bewitching hours, i.e. between 12 midnight to 4am.
my colleague in a MNC in Penang and he told me about his true experience with
this haunted tunnel. Now, Kenny was staying in Fatty’s Park in Tanjung Bunga
and the MNC where we all worked in is situated in Bayan Lepas. Everyone knows
that it takes hours if one is to go from Bayan Lepas to Tanjung Bunga during
peak hours during working days. In fact, it is better to travel at off peaks to
Tanjung Bunga as it would only take around 45 minutes or so.
would rather spend time moving about after work and only to return home after
9pm. Well, that was normal working days; Kenny would stay back and only to
return way past midnight especially on Fridays. Those city folks would
understand what I meant.
The fact is
that Kenny was a Casanova; he seldom drive alone and he always accompanied by a
few female colleagues after work to disco, night clubs and bar hopping. To make
long story short, this was just any other Friday night and Kenny was about to
drive through the Green Lane tunnel with his lady friends.
entering the tunnel, Kenny suddenly open his mouth and warned his female
counterparts: “No one should open the mouth on entering the tunnel!”
Kenny was a joker; no one really treated him seriously. Amongst the ladies,
Catherine who was sitting in the front seat suddenly lean against Kenny and
said: “Oh~ I’m Soooo scared!”
At this time,
another finance lady Joan interrupted: “Oh, yeah! I see a beautiful ghost
cuddling against Kenny! Hahaha!”
seconded and said: “Ah! Now I see her! She is sitting just beside me! I am
feeling sooo warm. Hahaha!”
As soon as
Kenny has finished his sentence, everyone felt a cold breeze entered the car and
there was a presence as the pressure in the car suddenly increased. That was indeed
a very strange undesirable feeling.
the car has safely arrived back at the company car park; the group dispersed.
On the next
Monday when the office reopened; Kenny was absent. The reason was that Kenny
had an accident on his way back to Fatty’s Park. A truck suddenly appeared from
nowhere and rammed into the back of Kenny’s car while he was entering the
to Kenny, even after months later that he has this headache and occasionally momentarily
loss of memory. According to a Taoist, Kenny’s soul was lost during the last
impact and it would be difficult to recall his soul because a lady ghost has
caught hold of it.
Well, as a
bystander, there was nothing I could do but to advise everyone to stop talking
on entering any tunnels; especially at night. My take is: try if you dare…
