The Warning

Posted by : foongpc | Monday, August 18, 2008 | Published in


In one of my previous posts, I mentioned about a person I knew who can see dead people. She is my friend Thomas’ mother. (Thomas is not his real name)

You can read about the post I See Dead People here.

After my first experience at Thomas’ house, I was reluctant to visit him again. But Thomas called me several times. He said he wanted to meet me because he wanted me to introduce his insurance agent to me. At that time, I was looking for an insurance agent.

Of course I tried to arrange a meeting outside his house. I said, why not meet up at that nice restaurant in 1Utama? But he said he had prepared food for me, so it’s hard to say no.

And so I went. When I arrived there, his mom was asleep inside her room. I heaved a sigh of relief. After talking to the agent and some chit chats, I was about to leave when Thomas' mom came out from her room and greeted us. She said I did not look good. I freaked out. What did she mean by that?

She quickly asked if I was having any trouble lately, and I said no. When I asked her what was wrong with me, she said my face looked a little dark. She asked me to be careful in the coming days although she would not comment further.

Now that’s the not the kind of advice I would like to hear. Anyway, I tried to brush it off and went back home.

A few days later, I was walking to my car parked at the basement of a shopping mall when I noticed the door on the driver’s side of my car was open. Someone had pried open the door and opened the boot and stolen my bag which contained about RM3,000!

I really did not know how the thief knew I had money kept in the bag but I guess he must have spotted me keeping my bag inside the boot and suspected the bag must have contained some money. So I learnt a lesson that is, never keep your bag inside the boot of your car in full view of the public.

Anyway, when I visited Thomas again the following week, I told his mom what happened and she just beamed and said, “I told you to be careful, didn’t I?”

Actually, after this incident, I was very relieved even though I lost about RM3,000. At least it had nothing to do with dead people!

    That was a scary post. I hate when people warn me about something bad to happen and I don't have an inkling what it is. Scares me...I would rather not know (lol)

    Nice post, thanks for sharing.

    Sorry to hear about you losing that money...that was a large sum. Never keep any form of valuables in the car. I heard someone's digital camera got stolen...and apparently, they can detect laptops and cameras using some kind of sensor.

    As I read on, it really send chills down my spine.
    Sorry to hear about your loss. Don't put anything valuable in the car, not matter how briefly you're away. Be very cautious!

    Foong, so sorry to hear about your monetary loss but you know the Chinese saying, lose some money to ward off harm or disaster.

    Thomas's mom has a great gift.

    jena isle, me too. I rather not know if you can't tell me what is going to happen to me.

    my bug life, yes I learnt my lesson. Now I don't even carry that much cash around! It's true what you said about laptops - they can be detected using sensors.

    cc, yes I learnt my lesson, thanks!

    beng beng, will go and read your story - so exciting! : )

    happysurfer, yes rather lose money than life! She has a gift but I'm not sure I want to have such gifts!

    nice post;)

    however, i find it hard to believe that someone can talk to the dead. Fortune tellers and psychics usually read you very well and manipulate you into thinking you are experiencing something supernatural.

    ishaan, thanks for dropping by. There are believers and non-believers. It's really up to the individual how he or she interprets what he/she experience.
