People always say that hospital happens to be one of the most haunted places on earth. Most probably, its due to the number of deaths occured in one place more than anywhere. During the period I stayed in Taman Desa Hospital, I was haunted by mysterious noises and people. Actually, I never realized that there were ghosts lurking along the hospital corridors. Every night, I could hear children playing and laughing just outside the lobby the floor I stayed in but I did not suspect anything although it did occur to me before why weren’t the nurses bothered by the children who should be at bed in the late hours.
One day, a lady (could say she looked quite the rich and fussy type) admitted into the bed next to mine. At night as usual, the noises of children playing and laughing started and it went on the whole night. The next morning, the lady grumbled of lack of sleep due to the noises down at the lobby. Again, that very night, the noises started again. This time, the lady could not take it anymore and even asked me if I was bothered by noises. I simply shrugged because to tell the truth, I was already used to it. The lady then called the nurse attending the night shift and scolded her for not keeping the children’s voices low. The nurse simply replied she could not hear a thing but the lady insisted that the nurse was lying. It wasn’t until the next morning another day shift nurse told her that there was nothing they could do because these are ghost children.
Another encounter I had was when I was just admitted into the Taman Desa Hospital. At one time, I was awaken by an old man standing visiting my bed neighbour. Every day I could see him standing there smiling at me when I noticed him but he never spoke a word to the person he was visiting. That evening, my girlfriend was sleeping soundly by my bedside when I was suddenly awaken. As usual, I saw the old man and smiled back at him. This time around, he spoke to me. We chatted for a while until the old man told me he had to leave. We said our goodbyes and he left. My girlfriend woke up and asked me who I was talking to and I told her about the old man that always visited my bed neighbour. She looked at me with a funny look and asked me who I was talking about. She could not see any old man at all. I never saw the old man again, though.
