In Memory Of My Silent Reader

On 7th November, I received a surprise email from a silent reader CK from Singapore. The minute I read the first paragraph of his writing, something unseen jumped out of my phone through his email. My hair stood up very fiercely like Christmas trees on my head and I had the most terrible goosebumps ever. My skin all sprouted tiny lumps like a fresh chicken just being plucked all the feathers. Gosh! The mangled spirit just stood beside me and actually grabbed my leg while I was seated on the comfy chair alone in the office's conference room. I read on the email's message and CK was pouring out his grievances over the death of his childhood friend who was just killed in a car accident. In the wee hours, his friend navigated his own speeding Estima which hit the roadside and flipped over. The impact threw his friend out of the car and landed on the road for other cars to run over him to death. He was just 30 years old and this gory accident mangled his whole body. The victim's body had been cremated after the funeral but his badly mangled soul really came to find me. I had no choice but invited this poor wandering spirit to follow me home. I am not lunatic but I can swear that this is all true. The reasons CK got in touch was because he dreamt of his departed friend appearing in his vivid dream where he knew clearly his friend had passed away. He remembered I had a similar encounter when my dead friend came to inform me that he had passed away and had to sadly move on already.......(BLOG) I have been exchanging over 60 emails with CK ever since, from doing prayers and making merits for his departed friend besides talking all the paranormal stuffs and grandmother stories.

Now this recent incident of CK's friend reminded me of another case that happened exactly 4 years ago, in November too. One silent reader from Penang wrote to tell me that her very young son Adrian Lee had just died suddenly after complaining of a severe headache. Adrian's brother took him to see the doctor and was advised to be admitted for further observation. Adrian passed away at the hospital in less than 24 hours. I could imagine the terrible shock, painful loss, sadness and anguish a mother had to face on seeing her youngest child dying before her. She told me that my blog brought so much memories for her as it was like a daily ritual when her young son and her would check to see my blog updates in the morning while having breakfasts. They both enjoyed reading whatever nonsense or paranormal stuffs that I shared. Now that he had gone, the heart broken mother found it so hard to read my blog alone and decided to write to share her griefs with me. My tears flowed down unashamedly like Niagara Falls at my office table as I could feel her deepest sorrow. My office colleagues pretended not to notice me wiping tissues but they were stealing side glances. 

I thought over the matter very carefully on how to reply this very sad mother. I was going away for my vacation the next day and planned to do some prayers or merit making for her son Adrian after my trip. Nothing was certain but I was about to reply her email...... Suddenly, my computer's screen got jammed and the whole desktop vision turned haywire and twisted like kaleidoscope image in colours! I was damn shocked to experience this the first time and heard a soft voice calling my head. It was the boy Adrian himself and he tried to communicate. Again, all my hair from my head, my pubic areas till my toes all stood up like lighted Christmas Trees! I tried so hard to press my keyboard and banged my mouse but nothing happened. I kept mumbling to the boy not to scare me by sitting on my pc's monitor. His frequency actually caused all the distortions on the screen and when he slowly moved, the screen's image also moved. Whooooa!! That was so scary till my balls fell down and any old man could have died of heart attack on my table.

I slowly picked up my balls and guts to compose myself. I spoke to the boy's spirit gently and told him that I would be replying his mother. He should not stop me as I had every good intentions to arrange prayers and merit making for him later. I told him that I was flying to Chengdu the next day and then hike up the beautiful Mount Emei in Sichuan Province of China. I told him that it was already winter and snowing beautifully in Sichuan. I invited him to follow me to visit Chengdu if he wished to. "Now please let me have my PC screen back to normal so that I could reply your mummy", I snorted back. The spirit let go and my computer was back to normal. I replied the mother that I was going overseas and offered my deepest condolence before asking for the boy's particulars and photo. She replied me quickly and attached his photo and details from the Obituary Ad placed in the newspaper. I was so sad to see his very handsome face and what a fate that he had to die so young. My heart was very touched that he was my silent reader for so long and we had never met up.



What happened next??.... 



This boy Adrian's spirit, really followed me up to the plane and flew to Chengdu with me & my wife. He was sitting inside my backpack all the way. My wife saw this little spirit but had no idea that I had invited him along. We stayed at a very huge suite room of the 5 star Rhombus Fantasia hotel which had a separate bedroom, living and walk in closet areas. I would not be able to afford this luxury hotel if not because of their Winter's low season that sent the prices knocking off 70% discounts. The young boy's spirit was happy and comfortable with so much privacy for him to hide himself esp the walk in closets. 

We boarded a bus to another town away from Chengdu to climb up the hill to see the famous Giant Buddha of Leshan which I have blogged HERE



In the above photo, there was a beautiful butterfly that followed me all the way up. I was swinging both hands to play with the butterfly which was at my eye level over the green plants. The boy's soul was happily sitting on it like a taxi so that he need not have to walk up in the winter cold.



I made merits for him by donating to sponsor the new temple's roof tiles. In the photo, I was writing his name on the roof tiles, besides donating cash to the donation boxes. I had to pray and mumble out the merits being dedicated to the soul of the boy. It is always very important that the family should always conduct proper prayers and lots of merit making for the deceased before the 49th day. This is the Law of the Universe and not mere superstitions.

Later, he followed us by bus to catch another bus at the Emei's terminal which was covered by heavy snow falls. There was so much snow everywhere covering the streets and vehicles around the Emei town. The boy's spirit was so excited and very happy to see snow for the first time.


The view atop was simply fabulous and very breathtaking. The heavens opened the clear skies for us to see the panoramic view of the mountain range in Tibet. You can read up from the post of Mount Emei and see the beautiful mountains above the clouds. We relaxed up there for many hours!

Back to the hotel in Chengdu, I wrote an email to inform the mother that her son's spirit had followed me overseas and I actually visited Chengdu and Mount Emei for our pilgrimage trip. I informed her of the merit making and shared all the photos. The mother was too surprised as she found it too hard to believe that her family members had also dreamt of the boy going to a foreign country in Winter. He was very happy and smiling to show he was boarding at the bus terminal with snow everywhere. They saw the dream of the mountains exactly like my above photo and thought that boy had probably gone to heavens. The dates of our trip matched precisely with the date of their dreams. They had no idea what the dreams was trying to tell them earlier.

My friend in KL who kept me in the loop of their email updates with HH The Dalai Lama and his Tibetan Rinpoches, had informed me that he was going to attend a big praying session in India. It was a very huge prayer session presided by HH The Dalai Lama where thousands of monks and devotees would gather in prayers together. The timing was just so perfect and I gave my friend Adrian's photo and particulars for them to bless and pray to deliver his soul to heavens. The parents were so touched and grateful to hear the good blessings and closure for their son. They made a trip to KL together with other family members and gave me a big dinner at Supertanker Restaurant. We met up for the first time and it was a touching & memorable evening.


His Holiness The Dalai Lama

  2. how you get privacy with your wife if a spirit tags aling with you la ? i do see them and help them, but it’s a big no for me if they come and kacau me when i am with my guy, that’s rude and i know they need help but come on lah, we humans also need personal space mah ~_~” i feel weird if i caught a glimpse of them while i am making love with my guy, and it can really turn me off, luckily i only encountered one such situation throughout my relationship, tho their attempts to enter our home during hungry ghost festival month can be pretty high...

    anyway, why not pray to Ksitigarbha for CK’s friend, or if you dare yourself to seek the wrathful dakinis, why not seek assistance from Simhamukha dakini ? Meditate upon her and recite her mantras for guidance :)

    1. OMG! You damn funny and tickled my ribs. I am glad you know that they are everywhere all the time and visit every homes when we sleep at night to inhale our energy 'chi'. That's why I always advise my friends to purify their homes and bedrooms very often. You always perform kinky shows that's why you have frequent spectators! Muahahaha

      I have asked the monks and the Dalai lama to help the soul as I have no power to ferry souls. Next time, I send them to your house for you to ferry their souls lah. Okay boh?? Gimme your address dei. LOLOL

  3. Very interesting! If I were to meet up with you and the spirit is with you at that time, would I be able to see the spirit? On 2nd thought, I don't think I want to be able to see the spirit because ignorance is bliss, right?

    1. I think they might play hide and seek with you when you meet up.
      I suggest that you visit those funeral parlours late at night and sit on the chair facing all the parlours. Invite the unseen guests to show up. They might stroke your hair and pat your shoulders within seconds. Everything happens for a reason in this life on what we see and hear.

    2. I attended my friend's father funeral at En Xiao Cheras where everything is clean and bright but I felt nothing. Maybe I just don't have your "gift" but I think it is better for me to feel nothing lah.

    1. Hello Norick. You really woke me up as I didn't realise that time has flown so fast. I used to get a lot of emails in the earlier years with 1001 questions about trips to Japan until I had to temporary remove my email. I hope you are feeling well and happy there. Life is just a journey that everyone has to experience the process and cycles.

      Happy Long Weekend to you.

  7. ..So much sadness. TM, you are a very kind soul and patient when dealing with people. That's why they are reaching out to you. There is a sense of closure and comfort in their hearts.

    Not many are understanding enough when it comes to handling deep sorrow and with things that are beyond what they can see. God bless you!

    1. Life is full of sadness each day when we hear news on TV. I agree that most people would never have the fate to have closure. I still believe on one's individual karma and merits for their journey. I am not a very strong person either and I need a pillar too. Thanks to my wife always.

  8. I want to praise Anay for your kindness that you show to everyone that you know. It is so lucky to know Anay, I know Anay will never turn down the person who need his help.

    However, staying together with a spirit in the hotel room during a holiday trip is really terrifying. Yannie doesn't have such a brave heart.

    1. Hey, you are just too humble and have helped so many people too. I am learning from you in many ways. It is not easy to turn people away when they need help and I had to remember that many people had helped me over the years too.

      I think if you put on your best fierce acting face, all the hantu would flee for miles! Wakakaka

    1. Yes I agree that all the human races should unite together in prayers to make the world a better and happier place to live. Too many killings and cruelty nowadays that make our world so sick now.

  11. You have such a kind heart. You not only help those still walking on this earth, you also extend your help to the dearly departed. Omg, these spirits that visit you...and your wife, you make it sound like it's nothing, you're so used to it (it would freak me out). This is such an interesting read...thanks for writing and sharing it.

    1. I am always scared of many ghosts and many human beings too. There are kind spirits, happy ghosts and ferocious pontianaks too. You can also find greedy ghosts under casino tables and hamsap ghosts inside ladies toilets anytime. Some hang around to watch while others inhale the fragrance the toilet bins inside the cubicles.
      This boy was just a young teenager, humble and well mannered soul. I felt sad for him but his death so quick and sudden. It was my first time going on holiday like this... Hihihihi

  12. Eee.. I always have mixed feelings when reading stuff like this..

    Anyway, that's life, people die, and many would be born at the same time.

    1. You are still a teenager mummy. Sure scared of ghosts but they are harmless compared to many humans. Sprinkle salt around your house and bedroom for good sleep always.

    2. Why sprinkle salt will have good sleep?

    3. All the different faiths believe that salt could purify the places

    4. I never knew sprinkling salt helps us have good sleep. Heard of people using garlic to repel bad spirits and purify places or homes. Shall give it a try 😊

  13. Your post woke up the sleepy me! I was sleepy and grumpy while sipping coffee and my eyes grew very big as I read you very spooky story. OMG it is so fantastic and so scary. I wonder how you cope with these visitations. This Ah Hong Chee would have screamed and fainted dead away! It is wonderful that both you and wife are able to assist these troubled spirits to go on the right way to a place where they belong.

    1. It would be easy to ferry your soul. Just put you on the KTM and send you to any jangwat in Thailand. What happens if you die later than me? That's why I told you that you need to learn how to chant the right prayer mantras so that you can go to Western Paradise by yourself.

    2. please bestow on me how to chant the right prayer mantras when we meet.

    1. Someday we would all return to the origins where we belong. The spiritual dimensions are more scary and contain everything, both blissful and gory too. There is nothing to be afraid when you know all the mantras. It is all inside our minds to feel sad, scared or worried. We can tune it to happiness and peaceful always.
