ghosts

this one is for sundayscribblings

do I believe in ghosts? I do. and I hate ghosts I see in films, they're damn too scary.
apa aku percaya hantu? pasti. dan aku ga suka lihat hantu-hantu di film, terlalu serem.
west ghosts look better than Indonesian. is vampire a ghost? than he's the most handsome ghost ever...
hantu-hantu barat kelihatannya ga terlalu serem, dibandingin hantu Indonesia. vampir itu hantu atau bukan? kalau iya, berarti vampir adalah hantu paling ganteng...

Chinese vampire (as I see in movies) make me laugh. they're not scary at all, they're funny. they wear china clothes with funny hats, their hand straightforward, and they jump over here and there chasing people.
kecuali vampir china yang bikin aku ketawa. gak serem sama sekali, lucu. pake kostum china lalu lompat kesana kemari mengejar orang-orang.

Indonesian ghosts ARE scary. pocong, kuntilanak, genderuwo, wewe gombel, gundhul pecengis.... I definitelly won't put any picture of them here, you can google it if you like.
kalo hantu Indonesia baru serem. pocong, kuntilanak, genderuwo, wewe gombel, gundhul pecengis.... jelas aku ga akan pasang gambar mereka di sini. kalo mau google aja sendiri...


have I ever seen ghosts? it's kinda strange that I've never seen either one of those origin ghosts I mentioned, alhamdulillah. but I saw a ghost once. and that was not so long ago. it was when I had vacation with Dan in yogya. I was in the homestay we stayed for a night. in the middle of the night I woke up for I couldn't breathe because my nose was clogged up. it happens when I stay too long in an aircond' room.
pernahkah aku melihat hantu? aneh juga aku belum pernah lihat hantu-hantu asli Indonesia yang aku sebutin di atas, alhamdulillah. tapi aku pernah lihat hantu, belum lama ini malahan. kemaren, waktu aku pergi ke yogya sama Dan. tengah malam di penginapan tempat kami menginap satu malam, aku terbangun karena hidungku mampet dan ga bisa bernafas. aku biasa begitu kalo kelamaan di tempat ber-AC.

I sat up and saw a head, yes head without body. it was long-blondy-haired, and was spinning around before my eyes. I couldn't see its face to be able to say it was 'he' or 'she'. it just kept doing it for few seconds, I reached my hand to it and felt it's hair was stiff, like a cheap wig. but then it flew directly to the window and gone.
aku bangun terduduk dan melihat kepala, yup kepala doang tanpa badan. rambutnya panjang dan pirang. berputar putar di depanku. aku ga bisa lihat wajahnya, jadi ga tahu itu laki atau perempuan. aku mengulurkan tangan dan rambutnya tersentuh olehku, kasar seperti wig murahan. tapi dia tiba-tiba terbang ke arah jendela, dan hilang.
I hope I don't have to deal with ghosts no more.
mudah-mudahan aku ga usah berurusan dengan hantu lagi.

That would scare me to death! I've never seen anything like that, thank goodness. I do believe that something exists like ghosts, but not necessarily the kind we see in movies.

hi Latree. Louisiana is one of the states just north of Texas where I live in the US. It was about a 2 1/2 hour drive from our house to a casino there. We don't have casinos in Texas.

Creepy! Yes, I think they are around, but not like in the movies. My brother and his friend were sure there was someone standing at the end of their beds one night. Each was sure that it was the other until they realized both were sitting up looking at he person!

I liked your comparison of the different kinds of ghosts from various cultures. The incident you write about must have been very scary.

A very good response to the prompt.
