Of Christmas Dinner And Ghost Stories

Posted by : foongpc | Tuesday, December 29, 2009 | Published in


On Christmas Day last week, I was invited to a Christmas dinner gathering by my friend.

I had a great time there because besides the delicious food, I was treated to real ghost stories by a retiree there.

More on the ghost stories later. First, let's take a look at the food I ate that night.

We had turkey. What Christmas dinner would it be without turkey right?

Although honestly, I prefer chickens! Haha! I feel chicken meat is more tender and juicy!

But I learnt that if I scoop some sauce underneath that huge turkey and spread it on my turkey meat, it tasted much better. Add in some cranberry sauce and voila, you have a delicious tasting turkey! Yummy!!

Besides turkey, we had salad which was full of fresh strawberries, grapes and carrots!

Spread some mayonnaise sauce on top of the salad and you would be drooling in no time! In fact, I am drooling even as I write this! Haha!

We had two different types of spaghetti.

Which one looks more appetizing to you?

My host asked me which I preferred and I had a hard time deciding as they were both nice!

Ooh! Feels like having spaghetti for dinner tonight! Hmmm....

I am not a fan of shepherd's pie, but this one was scrumptious!

Maybe because all the food I ate here was home cooked. Somehow, home cooked food always taste better! Don't you all agree?

Oh, by the time I took the photo of this shepherd's pie, it was already half eaten! And I have not started eating yet! Gosh!!! I guess that's the sacrifice I had to make as a blogger! Haha!

We had an assortment of cakes for desserts.

Oh! They were so yummy I had a hard time stopping myself from making a complete sweep of these cakes!

Luckily I managed to control myself and left some cakes for others! LOL! I was actually wondering if the host would allow me to take home some. Haha!

And of course there were the usual "junk food".

All calorie laden cookies and sweets! I tried not to touch them but I eventually succumbed to the pineapple tarts and the chocolate cookies!

Well, I promised myself to jog round the park five times the next day, which I unfortunately did not do due to waking up late! LOL!

Now, as I was enjoying my dinner with friends, an old retiree came up to us and told us his encounters with ghosts! Being a fan of ghost stories, I was all ears!

I am not going to go into details, but very briefly, this man had worked in Filem Negara (located in Section 14, PJ) for close to 40 years and during his work there, he had experienced a lot of chilling hauntings in the darkroom and the surrounding area there.

I was freaked out when he told us about how he almost got strangled a few times by a ruthless ghost and how men and women would ran out of toilets completely naked after being disturbed by ghosts inside the toilets!

One very spooky encounter was in the toilet when a man felt his buttock was being pinched! He was so scared he ran out of the toilet without bothering to wear his pants!

Another was the retiree's own experience of how he could feel someone or something following him around inside the darkroom while he was processing photos. This happened many times and he was mostly alone at that time! Sometimes, that thing would poke at him, at other times, it would try to strangle him!

Luckily the retiree was brave or perhaps he was so used to the hauntings, he actually shouted at the ghost to leave him alone! And it did, for a while, before attacking him again.

Anyone of you currently works in Filem Negara? Haha!

By the way, the retiree told us that you better not be the last one to leave the building, as you would need to switch off all lights before leaving and the thing was, the switch was located far inside the building. After switching off the lights, you would need to walk quite a distance in complete darkness before reaching the exit. Horrors!

OK, enough about ghost stories! I hope I spooked you a little. Haha! Getting back to the dinner, I took photo of one of my friends cutting the turkey to the last bit.

And another friend digging out whatever fillings inside the turkey for our consumption.

This is the photo of the fillings. Does not look too appetizing, but trust me, it's yummy!

I would really be missing this nice dinner gathering. I hope to get invited again next Christmas!

    I sure am looking forward to the Chinese New Year meals esp the one at the reunion dinner. Can't wait and it's hardly two months away!

    Did you know that the CNY shares the same date as Valentine's Day in 2010?

    Can't believe no one's here yet, Foong. Everyone's out at lunch? hehe..

  4. HappySurfer said...

    Btw, those ghost tales are spooky, alright. The idea of walking back to the exit in the dark after having to swtich off the lights is eeeerie. I hear ghosts that can touch people or things (solid stuff) are experienced ones - who have acquired the skill over time.

    Shall I continue keeping you occupied (read 'spamming') until someone gets here? *snigger*

    happysurfer, hi you are early! Congrats for being my FC today!

    Yes please keep me occupied! Haha!

    happysurfer, one great thing about Malaysia is we have so many festivals and so much good food! After Christmas, it's CNY, which I look forward to as well! Especially the food! But I seemed to enjoy CNY much more when I was much smaller. Haha!

    Oh! Didn't realize CNY and Valentine's Day is on the same day! Cool!

    December 29, 2009 at 1:09 PM
  8. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, the ghost stories were really spooky. I enjoyed the stories nevertheless, but I will never ever step into Filem Negara, or stand within 100 metres of it, not after all these stories! Haha!

    I can't help but that red tray of cookies is so like Chinese New Year! Haha....it's coming soon anyway.

    I don't enjoy eating turkey. Find the meat tough.

    December 29, 2009 at 1:39 PM
  10. HappySurfer said...

    Hi Foong. Glad you stepped in otherwise I would have run out of topics to spam you. of course, not! haha..

    Fortunately, not everyone can experience seeing ghosts. Also, I was told to pretend you don't see or feel its presence then it would not disturb you. Have a lovely day ahead, Foong..

    December 29, 2009 at 1:40 PM
  11. HappySurfer said...

    Hi, Mei Teng. Turkey is more gamey too.

    December 29, 2009 at 1:41 PM
  12. foongpc said...

    mei teng, yeah, I prefer chickens to turkey! But I guess turkey gives me that Christmas mood! LOL!

    Now you mention it, yes that tray of cookies does look like CNY! Haha! I guess we just use back the same tray of cookies whether it's CNY, Christmas, Hari Raya or Deepavali! LOL!

    December 29, 2009 at 1:49 PM
  13. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, haha good to see you returning here to comment. Had your lunch already or not eating lunch today? ; )

    Yes, I also remind myself to pretend if I ever see those things, but I wonder if I can do that! It'll be quite tough I think! Haha

  17. Shingo T said...

    I heard turkey meat is tough.
    Prefer chicken too, just like you.

    December is the season to celebrate. But just when it's time to go for a diet, I hear Chinese New Year is coming soon. =(

    Food, evil food.
    But still, I can't live without you.

    December 29, 2009 at 3:01 PM
  18. lina said...

    When CNY comes, more ghost story from you, Foong? :D

  19. Tekkaus said...

    Aww...you are so lucky. I went to a party too and of course the foods were not as glorious as yours. :(

    December 29, 2009 at 3:18 PM
  20. Tekkaus said...

    Wow! Really ghost story? Sounds like scary aye. Ok, let's see what you had on that day.

    December 29, 2009 at 3:18 PM
  21. Tekkaus said...

    Agreed. Just ask Mr. Bean and he will tell you Turkey is important. :p

    I had that too every Christmas at my aunt's place. :) Turkey meat is a little rigid I would say.

    December 29, 2009 at 3:20 PM
  22. Tekkaus said...

    Salads with strawberries? War...I have never tried such salads before. :p

    Ouh....2 different spaghetti? Which one is more appetizing? Of course the more colourful one.

    The latter looked like expired food. :p

    December 29, 2009 at 3:21 PM
  23. Tekkaus said...

    Shepherd pie? What's that bro? Home cooked always taste better? yes, if the chef is good. :p

    Wow! So much cakes to makan.

    December 29, 2009 at 3:22 PM
  24. Tekkaus said...

    Yay! Ghost stories....

    Darkroom? What's that? A special room? Being strangled there? Hmm...perhaps there was an unrest soul being murdered there?

    December 29, 2009 at 3:25 PM
  25. Tekkaus said...

    Goodness, those who work in filem negara surely have a lot of haunting to bear with huh! :(

    I don't want to be the last man leaving. :p

    December 29, 2009 at 3:26 PM
  26. Tekkaus said...

    War...you makan so much. I'm sure now you are more "filled" aye. :p Anyway have a great day bro.

    Hey, I left a comment at your Mariah Carey blog.

    LOL OMG that looks like a really delicious Turkey. I'm gonna make a confession - I haven't tried Turkey before. But of course I want to! Now if only you could send me a Turkey through delivery.. Haha, just kidding!

    I have to agree with you that home cooked food tastes better than all those Fast Food giants. I'm so sick of them, damnit!

    December 29, 2009 at 4:23 PM
  30. HalfCrazy said...

    Your Mariah Carey blog opted me to listen to H.A.T.E.U and Candy Bling - my favorites from the album.

  31. iamthewitch said...

    Wah that is really a BIG spread! So nice and lucky of you Foong! I didn't get invited to any Christmas dinner, but our own dinner. LOL The spaghetti and cakes looked good! *drools* and the ghost story is so scary. I know I definitely will not be the last one in the office!

  35. foongpc said...

    lina, too short? Haha! Maybe there'll be longer ones next time! Ghost stories for CNY? Don't know bout that, but don't forget still haven't blog about my ghostly experience at Tasik Kenyir! : )

    December 29, 2009 at 6:14 PM
  36. foongpc said...

    shingo T, it's all about control and discipline, right? Haha! I also find it tough controlling my intake of food especially the festive seasons! : )

    December 29, 2009 at 6:15 PM
  37. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, yeah the ghost stories were scary!

    Mr Bean and his turkey - that's hilarious! Yeah, turkey meat is not tender like chicken!

    I'm sure you can cook this type of spaghetti right? Next time, add in your own strawberries : )

    Look like expired food? Don't judge a book by its cover. It actually tasted just as good as the colourful one!

    Don't know what's shepherd pie? Google it, bro.

    Darkroom is the room that photographer use to process films in the dark. You know, like you saw in the movie "Shutter"? It's an eerie place and I won't want to work inside any darkrooms, haunted or not haunted! LOL!

    December 29, 2009 at 6:19 PM
  38. foongpc said...

    manglish, yes chickens are better! : )

    halfcrazy, thanks for leaving a comment at my MC post!

    Haven't tried turkey? It's OK, you didn't miss much as long as you have tried chicken meat! Haha!

    Home cooked food is always better : )

    Yes I like H.A.T.E.U and Candy Bling too though it took me some time to like them : )

    December 29, 2009 at 6:22 PM
  41. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, well your own dinner can also treat it like Christmas dinner right? Haha!

    Yeah, the ghost stories were scary indeed! : )

    December 29, 2009 at 6:23 PM
  42. foongpc said...

    bananaz, how to control my diet? Don't control lah! So my next year's resolution is to slim down. Haha!

    December 29, 2009 at 6:45 PM
  46. HalfCrazy said...

    Of course I try chicken meat all the time! I'm really hungry, my stomach's practically growling. Now I want Chicken! The food on your post - they punish me just by looking at them. I know I can't have them anytime soon!

    I gotta agree with you that it seems like every song on the album have a similar sound. I can't tell what. I gotta listen to it more lol! But it's definitely more on heartaches and In-Your-Face verses, haha!

    Wow! Lots of food! I do prefer other meat than turkey as well. I think turkey is too big. By the time the whole thing gets cook up, it is already too dry.

    We had lots of fresh oysters during the holiday season. I can still smell the fishy smell and I like it :o)

    Ok, that is some freaky ghost stories. Unrested souls who know who to have a good time messing with people. I can never work at a haunted place. The thought would rattle my nerves and all spooked out at the same time! My old workplace had a couple of hauntings, experienced by my closest buddies in the restrooms too. Funny how things of this nature happen in the restrooms.

    I found a couple of books that contain Christmas ghost stories; hopefully one of them is the one you're looking for.

  85. foongpc said...

    ayie, you don't like turkey too? Yes, I was stuffed alrite! Haha!

    If I were the one in the toilet or taking my bath, I think I would run out naked too! LOL!

    January 5, 2010 at 1:41 AM
  86. foongpc said...

    kenwooi, yes, avoid that haunted place! You have been warned! Haha

    January 5, 2010 at 1:43 AM
  88. foongpc said...

    ai shiang, yes agree with you turkey too big by the time it gets cooked, it's too dry already.

    Fresh oysters! Love that! : )

    January 5, 2010 at 1:44 AM

    Not unless it's cooked really good and very tasty. I just find turkey meat so bland but ironically I use it to replace ground beef or pork for healthier option.

    Hahaha foong running out naked... too bad for you if there's any blogger around that time to capture your naked run!

    Happy new year!

    ayie, well, turkey is indeed healthier option compared to beef and pork. But healthiest is fish!

    Haha! Either I run naked or I just keep my cool and pretend I didn't feel anything! Wonder if I can do that! : )

    I believe even from the beginning of time, humans have wanted to instill fear in themselves for the thrill. Does anyone know any solid facts about the origin of ghost stories?
