Confession by Anon
5th April 2023
Just to share a freaking chilling encounter in Bangkok that happened 10 years ago.
Back then, I was a relationship manager in a bank. Our branch has this twice a year Team Bonding activity, usually an overseas trip. That year due to our branch budget, our team decided to have our team bonding in Bangkok. As we were in our 20s, we were all really excited about the shopping, massage and havoc drinking sessions.
The hotel we chose was The Berkxxxx Hotel Pratunam in the Pratunam area. It was newly built and looked really swanky. Three of my colleagues and I —all girls , were assigned to the last two rooms at the corner while the guys were staying one floor above us. The first two nights were alright; no strange encounters. Probably because we were out the whole day and only got back to the hotel after 1am to catch a few hours of sleep before going out again, early the next day.
On the third night, we made plans to check out a new Thai pub around 10.30pm. Since it was raining, we decided to stay in the hotel to wait it out. Two of my colleagues staying in the room next to ours came over to (the corner room) chit chat with us. I was having a headache and decided to rest on the bed instead, I was half asleep but could still hear the girls chit chatting.
Suddenly, we heard knocks on our door. The girls stopped chatting and one of them went to see who it was via the peephole, but there was no one there. All of us felt a little spooked. It was a distinct and ominous series of knocks. It wasn’t our imagination. Also, there was a doorbell, if it was hotel staff, they would likely press the doorbell right?
Nevertheless the girls continued their chit chat. Less than two minutes later, the knocking started again. This time louder, as if someone was banging on the door. By now I was already fully awake. One by one, my colleagues went to the peephole to check but there was nobody outside our door!
Then someone suggested opening the door to look. Maybe it was one of the boys just trying to be funny. I had a very strong sense that something wasn’t right. I stayed in bed while three of my colleagues opened the door,
To their horror, they saw an old man standing in front of them. His back was turned to them and he was badly hunched. They couldn’t see his face. Slowly, he glided towards the wall and disappeared into it.
The girls screamed and slammed the door shut. When they regained their composure and related the incident to me, they were literally trembling.
That night, needless to say, we ended up going to bed early and never joined the male colleagues at the Thai pub. It was our last night in Bangkok and we had to catch the flight back home in the late afternoon.
The three girls who saw the old man apparition decided to put that chilling episode behind when we got back to Singapore and went back to their normal lives. However, five days later, the three colleagues started falling sick one by one with the same symptoms - high fever that wouldn’t go down even after medications. They were either suffering from insomnia or night terrors, and this went on for two weeks. One of the girls sought help from a local feng shui master but there was no improvement. Luckily under the recommendation of one of the girl’s uncle, they went to a temple Medium in Batu Pahat in Malaysia. The Medium was able to accurately point out what happened in Bangkok. After some prayers and cleansing the girls recovered.
