Hell Officer Spoke To Me

I always had strong doubts whether the hell or spiritual world existed. I bet you guys also may have same thoughts unless proven otherwise! 
I will share with you how frightened I was!!!!

When I returned to Malaysia, I joined Hakuhodo Advertising which was a top worldwide Japanese advertising agency. We launched big giants like Perodua, One Utama, NEC Mobile, Kenwood, Kao Products, Hazama and lots more. It was a bitter sweet and stressful agency where 1 male art director went frenzy and slashed bloody a female copywriter with an 18 inch steel ruler after both exchanged tight slaps & rained vulgar abuses. It was fun as we watched them fight in the studio & again inside the elevator. Why? The female writer was a bitchiest bitch who deserved to be shot dead. Her words could kill anyone hence she made a good writer!

At work, I shared a cubicle partition with a junior designer, Teoh who was 55 years old then. He was so fatherly to me yet he had to obey my orders and that made me so arrogant. He often nagged at me for buying & striking 4Ds so often plus speaking vulgar rhymes & jokes so frequently. He was so holy & damn naive. I always teased him "Bad Dog" for barking at me everyday. So I called Teoh as "Chao Kow" (Bad Dog in Hokkien) He just laughed & took the joke well. He often complained that it was a terribly big sin to address him that way.

One day Teoh was so damn Too-Lan with me and went all out to find a book to show me.




He gave me this precious book - Journey To The Underworld.... written by some Taiwanese temples. I read that book and finished all the same night! I was so shocked to hear about all the chambers inside the hell. I realised that I probably need to visit every department in hell when I die someday. It was so gory and scary to read them without any photos!

Then there was a line supposedly quoted that the Jade Emperor of Heaven said that whoever prints & distribute these books out will earn very Big Merits. I thought that by making Big Merits, it might lessen my bad karma. So I went all out to collect money from all my gila friends and headed to the printer to supply me thousands of copies. All my friends stared at me in disbelief! How could a party animal like me suddenly wanted to distribute religious books. They asked me if I was sick or okay. They asked me if the Hell was real and I replied "I really Dunno lah"..



Months later, I followed a friend Maggie to a temple behind the Assunta Hospital in PJ. She wanted to register her name as her animal sign went against the Tai Sui (Grand Duke Jupiter) that following year. I walked around the temple and looked at all the many heavenly statues amazingly.



I stopped and stared at these 2 statues which I had guessed that they were Hell Officers ( The 2 Brothers in Black & White) I quickly summoned Maggie over and asked her so many questions about the White Hell Officer. I asked what was the written Chinese word on his hat, why his tongue so black, what he carried in his cloth bag and blah blah blah... I even questioned Maggie whether the Hell Officer was a real thing or just legendary. She surrendered as she could not answer me!



Few months later, I went back to Penang for a holiday and joined my friend Michael for an outing. You should take note that Penang has so many small temples tucked away from the main streets and they often have mediums going into trance almost nightly. The Penang folks would often ask the mediums almost everything under the sun.

Michael took me to meet a young medium, Ewe Chye who was off-duty and he sat down to casually chat with us. Those folks believed that Ewe Chye is the incarnation of the warrior deity Guan Gong's horse! I heard the horse fell and Guan Gong was captured. So we booed that medium lah!

Suddenly Ewe Chye paused, stopped talking and turned his head towards me!!


Ewe Chye - The Hell Officer is here now! He will answer all your question. He says he is REAL!.....
Twilight - Yikes! Why me? Why see me? Arrrgh!            
                                  
Ewe Chye - The Hell Officer said you wanted to know some things about him.  Did you?
Twilight - No, No.... Where got lah?? I didn't want to know anything. Aiyo!

Ewe Chye - Think carefully, few months ago in KL you met him somewhere!
(Paused)..... Blink!.....
Twilight - Yeah, yeah I recall now... it was the temple behind Assunta. Aiyo, nothing serious lah, why come to find me in Penang. So scared lah.

(Twilight's limbs turned soft like rubber bananas and face turned white like bed sheets)

Ewe Chye - He says the words on the hat means you will be wealthy when you see it.
His tongue is black bcos he consumes opium and his bag is filled with money....

Twilight - Oh I see, thank you, thank you!... Nothing else... thank you...

(Twilight in cold sweat and heartbeat like F1)

Ewe Chye - If no more questions, he is going off now..
Twilight - (wiping cold sweat away) Yes, thank you, nothing else.

Zap! The hell officer disappeared away!.....

I was so damn scared, worried and paranoid or days. I was so crazy & hired another medium where I forced him to find the same Hell Officer to enquire whether I had offended him in anyway... Oh dear, I was so relieved when he replied "Nothing, all okay lah"..

Honestly, after a while I started to wonder how the Penang medium knew that I saw the Hell Officer's statue in KL? I didn't tell anyone else for sure. Maybe it was the Hell Officer, maybe it wasn't the Hell Officer. Real or not real? real or not real? I went on and on silently in my head...

I will tell you in my next blog how I was really taken to HELL!.... I was 100% convinced that HELL is real and no joke!



So Don't Play, Play!



If you ever wish to have a copy of this Journey to Underworld, just email me your address & I will post to you absolutely FOC.

Disneyland HKG (Part 1)

It was my 2nd visit to a Disneyland and this one in Hong Kong was so small. However, I really enjoyed just as much as the one in Anaheim, Los Angeles which was where the original Disneyland started. The Hong Kong's Disney will be expanding soon as they have so much land and hills around the present site. So be patient lah.

I am happy to note that the quality and fun was still the same, so size doesn't matter, RIGHT?
Many friends went to HKG but didn't visit Disneyland because they complained it was expensive! Where got expensive eh? Go on weekdays like I did and it's only HKG290 for whole day's unlimited rides and laughter!

I'm only posting 3% of my photos below as I do not want to spoil your future fun in the Happiest Place On Earth! See I am so kind!

Their MTR trains are also special to bring you there with "Mickey" windows. So happy!


Even the hand rails are "Mickey" theme. They have display shelves in the whole train showing Disney figurines.


The big arched entrance greets you!


The Mickey Mouse made of flowers and shrubs. You will see the same in L.A.



They have many lively parades during the day & night, to keep our spirits happy & young again!


The many colourful floats on parade.



Film Reels of Dancers, spinning like bimbos.



Plants coming alive! It was so funny!


I guess she must be Alice In Wonderland.


Take a river boat cruise to see 'live' safari animals living in their habitat. The elephants even sprayed water from its trunks.


To be continued to Part 2.


Disneyland HKG (Part 2)

Next year, I hope to visit Euro-Disney in Paris. Hopefully I can board the Air Asia to Manchester and then take the train from England to France. It's just my dream.

We must have dreams and aim for it using our mind power which will steer our fate towards it. Without dreams, goals or ambitions, our lives would be aimless and meaningless.



This is the "It's A Small World" place and I really enjoyed taking a boat ride inside to see thousands of miniature characters singing and dancing in very vibrant and colourful settings. You must not miss it, ok?


These are the miniature dolls in Japanese costumes.


Chinese costumes of the Ching Dynasty.


Aloha dancers shaking their belly to the beat of the drums!


There are so many arcades and souvenirs stalls everywhere to milk your money! So clever!


It was drizzling lightly in cool temperature. The mood was perfect Autumn to enjoy Disneyland.
Weekdays is the best time as it would be less crowded.

This is the best thrilling ride that I would never miss! In LA or HKG, they were exactly the same. You will end up screaming your lungs out in the space.


Even old grandma enjoyed driving the car in UTOPIA.


UTOPIA sound familiar to you?


The Halloween Party was the theme in Disneyland this Autumn, so the vampires & ghost came out to dance after sunset.


Trick or Treats? Pumpkin Head dancers were shaking like silly bumpkins of course!


The many floats were lavishly decorated to their best! It was fun watching them all till I forgot all my life's problems.


The whole night, the castle changed colours and patterns! They were amazing & grand!


Every minute the colours created different settings. You need to bring extra camera or batteries to shoot so many lovely photos there.


To be continued to Part 3



Disneyland HKG (Part 3)

This is the final part for my trip to Disneyland. Hope you will never skip this place if you visit Hong Kong. The HKG Tourism Polls reported that most tourists still voted OCEAN PARK as the No.1 Favourite Spot in Hong Kong.

I have seen OCEAN PARK 3 times since the 80's and nothing changed except the Sea World's Spectacular showing Dolphins & Sea Lions performing. The giant whale is not there anymore! Anyone know what happened to the whale?


Those muscular acrobat dancers were prancing up & down like a Yo Yo. It was really fantastic and tiring for them!

Fire Dancers......beautiful dancing they did.


Zombie looking dancers in old European era costumes.


They also zombied on the street like walking dead corpses.


Hey, what you call this character, I have forgotten its name lah.



The final was the best and my heart was so excited with the hundreds of firework displays!



Fnatastic colours! Worth my money? I felt so guilty to see money burning in the skies and air pollution plus global warming. Urgh, I should just shut up & enjoy lah.


This one was like fountains shooting into the skies. Lovely sight!



That is all for Disneyland Hong Kong! Only HKG$290, to enjoy in the Happiest Place On Earth, whole day.

I guarantee that you will be happy for 1 whole day in Disneyland. My cousin just told me that she visited Tokyo Disneyland 9 times! That one is damn crazy!

Shopping In Hong Kong

Where is the cheapest shopping place for branded stuffs in Hong Kong? You should head for Citygate Outlets which is next to the airport or at the foot of the cable car station that takes you to the Big Buddha on the mountains.

My cousin told me to buy perfumery stuffs from any SASA outlets but at CityGate, it was really more rocked bottom prices! I ended up buying bottles of Davidoff, Ferarri, Dolce & Gabana, Gianfranco Ferre, Kenzo & Elizabeth Arden. I could have bought more! So sinful me! Awwww!

This is the entrance to Citygate Outlets which is next to the Novotel Hotel.
Everything inside was like 40% to & 70% SALE!!!! Unbelievable!


Limited stuffs at Bodyshop but everything was very dirt cheap. I didn't buy anything as I don't like Bodyshop anymore. Their stuffs didn't clear my pimples. I only like their recycle paper bags. Ha Ha!


Timberland was clearing their Summer clothes & shoes here. Not my type either.


Hey! For flip flop lovers, the Crocs here sell at around RM60 upwards! Cheap Lah!


The Calvin Klein outlet has all the men's underwear, cheaper than KL.

 
Vivienne Tam is a hot favourite brand with Hong Kong's bimbos because they have some kinky patterns and garish colours. Vivienne Tam is good for that.


The Lanvin Boutique was cold as their discounted prices were still choking my throat. Cold feet!


Many people were crowding all over, grabbing the Ralph Lauren stuffs, so I didn't bother to check it out. The era of this brand has ceased for me.


Burberry is the right brand for some kiasu people that I know. You can notice their checked browny colours half a mile away. I personally know well, a KL's Steamboat Shop owner who wears Burberry everyday and drives a Cayenne Porsche. So kiasu!


After shopping like a whore for days, I was shocked to see several pitiful beggars in Hong Kong. This frail old lady could be almost 80 years and knelt in front of many busy shoppers outside Lane Crawford at HKG Times Square! No one cared for her!


Look at this poor handicapped man who crawled with his 2 arms as his leg limbs were badly twisted. So sad! I ended up shopping with mixed very guilty feelings at Mongkok's Night Ladies Market (Loei Yan Kai)


This one was better, he could write lovely Chinese calligraphy so we don't call him a beggar.

 I realized how sinful I could be if I just had a good holiday & didn't think of charity. So I gave over hundreds of dollars to beggars & donation boxes. I felt better & less guilty after that. I also slept well.


We lucky devils have merits, that's why we can go on holiday! We would just be spending all our good merits away by just going on holiday, so please do some charity there!



Green Potted Plants

It has been a trend and craze nowadays to see many displays of fake potted plants at the shops and restaurants. They look cool and nice to ...
