My ghost experience was around Christmas, I can’t exactly tell when. I was so tired that day that i didn’t want to go to night church or simbang gabi, so I stayed home with my cousin. When the people who were going to night church were getting ready, my cousin and I were watching tv until they left. After they left we watched tv for a couple minutes until we were tired. Then, we left to go to my cousin’s room, as we went in we saw a tall thing that went through the roof and it’s head was cut off, so we ran to my room for safety. I haven’t went in that room for a long time after.
Noong bata pa ako, lagi akong nanood ng mga nakakatakot na mga pelikula at sometimes kinacopy pa namin yung paano makakakita ng multo. Noong ako ay pitong taong gulang, after my grandfather’s burial pagkagabi, nagising ako at gusto ko sanang mag CR ngunit ng makarating ako sa may hagdanan nakita ko ang isang puti na bagay sa una ay binalewala ko lang siya kasi baka gawa-gawa lang siya ng aking mata. Kaya kinusot kusot ko pa ang mata ko pero ang ikinagulat ko ay ng mabilis na umakyat sa aming hagdanan ang bagay na puti na pormang babae na may belo sa ulo, hindi ako makakilos sa aking tinatayuan. Ng makalapit na ito sa akin ay tumagos lamang ito sa aking katawan.
Hindi lamang iyon ang unang pagkakataon na nagpakita siya sa akin. Ang pangalawang pagkakataon noong ako ay dose anyos ay ng bumisita ang aking lola at pamangkin sa aming bahay. Napilitan akong tumabi sa aking nakababatang pamangkin sa kabilang kwarto namin dahil hindi ako sanay sa madilim na kuwarto. Hindi kaagad ako nakatulog at napatingin ako sa labas ng aming bintana dahil sira iyon. Makikita mo kung gaano ka liwanag sa labas dahil kabilugan iyon ng buwan. Sa pangalawang pagkakataon nakita ko uli ang babaeng naka belo, at tulad ng una hindi ko talaga makita ang kanyang mukha wari ay nakamasid siya sa akin. Napigil ko aking hininga at bumalik uli sa pagkakahiga. Ang ika tatlong pagkakataon at pinakahuli ay dumaan siya sa habang ako ay nagluluto sa aming kusina. Ang aming kusina ay nasa labas ng bahay kaya nakita kong tumagos siya sa pader ng aming bahay. Gusto ko sanang alamin kung sino siya ngunit kung siya man ay nakatira din sa aming bahay mabuti pang pabayaan ko na lang.
Naniniwala ako na ang mga kaluluwa ay nandyan lamang sa ating paligid at pinagmamasdan tayo.
Si Manang Itok
Hi! I’m ephraim, 16 yrs old from markina city. I saw the announcement of DF on posting article about sperntural beings nd i think i like to share a story to you .. well, not my stories but from my mom.
She’s from bohol (my fave hometown by the way!) she lives in the town of candijay which is literally a rural area.. 10 hours ang biyahe from the seaport .. anlayo!! .. she then shared a story about manang Itok (manang in boholano means “ate or aling” ).. manang itok is odd, she says. She’s an old aged woman, thin, silent and mysterious. She rarely speaks to people whom she doesn’t know but the whole community knows her .. why?? because even though she’s not friendly enough, she is known as an “aswang”.. Whenever there is a sick person, she would be around the house .. she says she just wanted to help .. but after some months, or even weeks, the patient will die … I just thought that maybe it is just a coincidence … then i asked my mom, ” ehh panu niya nalaman na may sakit ung tao??” She replied “aba malay ko! kaya nga ung mga tao nagtataka kasi bakit daw siya umeepal”, then i burst into laughter.
Pag may buntis din daw, madalas siyang makita na umaalialigid sa house nito. But this is the hair-raising part, one time she became sick and her neighbors came to help her to bring her to the albularyo or to the doctor. When they examined her, they saw a pair of little wings under her armpit.. parang pakpak ng manok pero maliit na version. Kulay itim daw .. tapos puro buhok daw ung paligid.. normal lang ba sa tao yun?? geeezzz..
Pero umalis na si mommy for college kasi dito na siya sa manila mag aaral .. nalaman na lang niya ung balita na she died because of her old age. Nung namatay daw siya, it was noticeable that her womb was swollen enough like a pregnant woman .. then some nights, makikita na may mga lumalabas na langgam sa tenga niya, at inuuod yung kamay niya ..
Aswang ?? Binarang ?? I don’t know .. hahah .. last words: just be cautious enough when you meet someone myterious… we never know what secrets she/he possesses … tnx!!
Lalakeng naka barong tagalog at naka-Itim na pantalon
by Janz Rodriguez
Last year, we went to Bukidnon for our Medical mission. After ng work namin inimbita kami ng sa bahay ng boss naming babae. While nakaupo kami with my friends sa sala set nila sa sala and watching movies, na curios akong lumingon at tumingin sa taas ng hagdan nila na medyo madilim at may nakita akong lalakeng naka barong at pantalon na itim na nakatinigin sa akin.. napatalon ako sa takot and I kinon-confirm ko sa aking kasama sa trabaho na may third eye at sabi nya na meron talagang multo and exact yung description ko. Then nung ni share ko sa familiy members ng ma’am ko na may nakita ako ang sabi ng step father nya na Tatay nya yun nakita ko at yun ang last suot nya bago siya inilibing.
Kinda nakakatakot yung bahay nila kasi merong punuan ng santol sa loob ng bahay na hindi pinutol at maraming mga manikin na nakakatakot kasi ang mama nya ay Mananahi ng Gown.
Impostor ni Lola
We were in our grandparent’s house.. it was dinner time and my mom asked me and my brother to call my lola to eat with us. I was 4 at that time and we ( me and my kuya) went to our lola’s room. We saw her praying on the carpet, then we called for what seemed like 6 times but she just ignored us.
Then suddenly she turned to look at us, and that’s when we realized that it wasn’t our lola.. her face was totally pale and her eyes were bloody!! My kuya was at my side that time and I told him to run. But then he wondered why… So I ran first to call my ankong (lolo), my kuya followed me. Then my ankong led me to my room. To my surprise, I saw my true lola there ironing my clothes!! Then my kuya asked me what I saw and told me he didn’t see anything!! I was totally frightened at that time..
From that time on, my lola told me that their house were built 77 years ago and were given to them by a spanish couple… lola told me that a lot of people have lived there before so maybe it was one of those people (who are already spirits) who lived there that i saw..
