I Know U Can See Me (我知道你看到我)
My friend is a tour guide operating mainly between Malaysia and Thailand. One day, he visited me asking me to perform a flower bath ritual. On enquiring, he said he has finally saw the ‘dirty thing’ after so many trips in and out of the country. This incident happened in a renowned hotel in Bangkok.
Let’s call our friend as Jason. Jason works with a budget tour company. By ‘budgeted’ in his own terms meant the tour guide will need to share a room with any single travelling tourist. This arrangement has many controversies if a lady tour guide has to put up with another man for the night. Of course, those more established companies had discontinued this form of ‘barbarous’ practice.
As the story goes, after a day tour in Bangkok city, everyone was tired and Jason’s group checked in a hotel in the city by a river. If you have been to Bangkok, the weather is hot and stuffy. So, after a whole day of outing, naturally everyone was sticky and hot. Like before, Jason had to put up with another man sharing a room.
After completing the checking in process, Jason’s roommate rushed into the bathroom to wash himself first while Jason started to unpack his clothing and personal effects from his luggage. Suddenly, Jason felt someone was blowing a breath of air at his right ear. He could instinctively identify the person was a female for along with the breath comes the fragrance of ladies’ perfume.
Perhaps the sudden breath startled Jason and he turned his head and to his horror; he saw a pale face of a lady staring at him. Their distance between their faces was so close that both of them almost kissing each other’s lips. As recalled by Jason, the face was as pale as a piece of white paper and the lady spoken: “Sawadeep… I know you can see mee… Hehehe…”
In Jason’s mind he murmured: “Do you think I like to see you too?” Of course, he was a seasoned traveller, he knew by pretending not to see the apparition is the best way to tackle it. Otherwise, there would be no peace for him and his pal.
So he tried to ignore the lady and held his fear until his roommate came out from the bathroom. As soon as the guy way out, he hurriedly asked him to pack his belongings and go to the hotel reception. When the bewildered man asked Jason, he wouldn’t want to talk but just push the person to be hurry.
Only after both of the gentlemen were out of the spooky room that Jason revealed what he has just saw. Luckily, there was another empty room for them.
According to Jason, that was the first time he came so close to a ghost. Before he left, Jason asked: “Was the lady ghost from the room or somewhere else?”
I replied slumber: “The lady ghost had followed you for a while or it will not materialize in front of you so fast! In fact, she is waiting for you outside my house!”
Then, I tapped on his shoulder and bid him ‘goodbye’.
