Grandma Got Possessed

Note: This post is contributed by Purple~Mushroom from her real encounter story.


My grandma passed away in 2004. I remembered I was in Bangkok for work at that time. When I heard of the news, I was feeling sad that whole day. A few months before she left this world, something terrible happened. She got possessed. I wasn’t there at that time, but I managed to get my cousin sister, Yen, who was the first witness to tell me what happened that night.

Before I start, I need to make clear the following people:

Yen – My cousin sister, first witness
Ah Hui – my youngest aunt, Yen’s mother
Ray – Yen’s eldest brother
Ah Ma – my grandma
Ah Ku and Ah Kim – My mum’s youngest brother and his wife (they stayed with my grandma)
Aunty – Ah Kim’s sister
The 3 kids – Ah Ku and Ah Kim’s 3 young kids
Tua yee – my eldest aunty
Tai kor – my eldest cousin brother, also, Tua yee’s eldest son
Yee kor – my second eldest cousin brother, Tua yee’s second son

Note that Yen’s family, Tua yee and Ah Ku’s family are within the same housing area, just a few houses away.

I will be writing this story as Yen, exactly how she told me.

So, the story begins…

It started around 8-9pm Friday night, I remembered it was Friday night because I just came home from college that day. My mum told me Ah Ma just got discharged from the hospital, she is very weak and asked me to go visit her at her house. So I went down to her house. Only the 3 kids and Ah Kim’s sister were there. Then Ah Kim's sis (aunty) told me Ah Ma is sleeping in her room....very weak, so I went to her room...the door wasn’t close. I just peep from outside the door. They didn’t turn on the it is dark inside. I just peep for awhile....then I went to the living hall.

About 15 minutes later, I went to peep again. This time, I could see Ah Ma moving. She was coughing. She turned her head and looked at me. I didn’t want to scare her so I called her “Ah Ma”. Then she asked me “Who are you?” (ni shi shui?) I told her, I am Yen. She seems to be blur. I thought she must have taken the medicine so maybe blur and can’t recognize me. So I told her again...”I am yen, your granddaughter”. It seems like she wanted to move, wanted to get up from the bed. Then aunty also came to the room, and asked her not to get up, worry that she might fall. Grandma does not listen and still trying to get up. So, we went into the room and turn on the lights. We asked her to take good rest and she lay down again.

In just a very short moment, she opened her eyes again. This time, she looked very pale and seems very blur. Then she asked me the same question: “Who are you?” I told her, “I am your granddaughter la, don’t move, lie down and rest” Aunty became worried and asked me to call my mum (Ah Hui). So I called my mum and minutes later, she came. As usual, she was mumbling and complaining. She asked what happened. Aunty explained to her that she is worried because Ah Ma looked very pale and weak. Then mum went into the room. She ask Ah Ma in Hokkien: “What is wrong?” Then Ah Ma opened her eyes… wide and big. She asked Mum in mandarin: “Who are you?” This is weird because they used to speak in Hokkien, not mandarin. My mum replied: “I am your daughter la... Ah Hui ah” Then Ah Ma answered: “Go away, go away. You all go away!” While she said go away....she keep trying to wake up from the bed. My mum blocked her and laid her back to the bed again. Then she fell asleep again, in just split seconds. We all felt something is wrong. Everyone start to get worry. Aunty suggested to send grandma back to hospital coz she says grandma is weak. Then we started calling Ah Ku and Ah Kim but couldn’t get through. No one dare to stay at Ah Ma’s room. We all sat at the dining hall, trying to call people for help.

I worry that Ah Ma may wake up and fell off the bed, so I went to her door and make sure she is ok. While I was standing at the door, Ah Ma suddenly turned her head and looked at me. Her face looks green, her eyes are big and wide open and she has a smiley face. I got so shocked and frighten and I screamed “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” My mum scolded me… she says ”You crazy ah… so loud wanna frighten Ah Ma” Then I said “Ah Ma... what are you doing?” I asked my mum to see… she came and says what happened. At that time, Ah Ma already sat up and she is sitting at the bed. We rushed to her bed. Ah Ma’s eyes still rolling big and wide. Everyone panicked. We asked the 3 kids to say the prayers (Ah Ma and Ah Ku’s family are Christians) My mum held Ah Ma and laid her back to the bed, asking her to sleep. We all went panicked… and we were desperately looking for people. We called Tua yee. In a matter of minutes, Tua yee came together with Tai kor and Yee kor. My brother Ray came too.

All the guys went into Ah Ma’s room and they all shouted ‘AH MA! AH MA!” It seems like something else is inside Ah Ma. Ah Ma keep wanting to get up from her bed. She tried to take off her clothes. Then all the guys stand by the bed and hold her down. Then we started to see Ah Ma’s teeth. She was growling and roaring…. Grrrrr…grrrrrr……. Eyes rolling big and wide... very fierce. It is very scary at this time. We all knew that this is not Ah Ma. Ray tried to say some Buddhist prayers in his heart and Ah Ma rolled her eyes big big and looked at him! That thing inside her knows that he is praying!

We called the ambulance. Then the pastor came. He said some prayers but it wasn’t any good at all. Ah Ma’s eyes was rolling big looking at the cross hanging on the wall. The ambulance came. All Malay men. They told us that Ah Ma is not sick. They say that she kena rasuk. Then those Malay men used their doa, or whatever, and then used their palm to cover Ah Ma’s eyes. Everything was calm after that. They send her to the hospital.

This is Yen’s part of the story.. My mum, upon hearing this, rushed from KL to Seremban hospital. The story continues in the hospital as the ‘Thing’ has not leave Ah Ma alone yet. More to come. But I need to interview more people because I wasn’t there to witness all the excitement. Hah! But seems like the Malay doa was very useful to calm the ‘thing’ down. Till today, when Yen thought about Ah Ma’s green, smiley face with big, wide eyes, she still gets the shivers. Everything that happened is done by that ‘Thing’. When Ah Ma finally regained conscious, she does not know what happened.

We all suspected this ‘Thing’ came with Ah Ma from the hospital. Coz, before that, Ah Ma was in hospital a few days for asthma. We also suspected that the house which Ah Ku was staying was not ‘clean’. Ah Ku doesn’t like us to mention this. But the kids told us they always hear people singing in the house at night. Well… what do you think?

.............. scary.... Hospitals are always known as dirty place, when someone is very weak, the restless soul will try to 'overtake' his or her soul.

When you're weak, it is also when you get to see the restless soul roaming around in the hospital, sometimes they even look down over you, means, they r actually floating on top of you (while you're laying down on the bed) looking down at you.... *shivers* don wanna talk bout it, scared... :P

My Ah Ku refused to believe. They are not very well off and struggled to buy this house. Not so easy for them to move.

Yen told me that until now, she still does not dare to go near to the room where Ah Ma lived. As for myself, I never go into that room since my grandpa got stroke there. My grandpa passed away and then the possessing thing happened to my grandma in the same room.

That room sends chills down my spine. It is always very dark inside there even when there are windows around. I don't know why.

Talking bout "Spirit floating on top of you (while you're laying down on the bed) looking down at you...." it happened to me 4 years ago in the hotel room i stayed in.

it was around 2am and I felt something was pushing me on top. It was like there is some heavy stuff place on top of my body. Tried to open my eyes at first but couldn't. then i remembered my mum told me to chant the rosary whenever i need to pray...

after chating the rosary, only then i'm able to open my eyes but still cant move my whole body...its like some1 is pushing me down. it only stop after 10 minutes of praying..& i was sweating all over.

after all have ended, you can really move...i was stunned & confuse as to what happened to me. the first thing i do after that was switch on all the lights & take out my bibble. I sat at the bed praying & reading the bibble the whole night.

In the morning, i asked to be switch back to my normal room (if available) & to my surprise, the receptionist told me "in 1 month all customer have change this particular room immediately or the day after..."

Till today, the event is still fresh in my mind.
